Thursday 10 September Last night's television saw a man correctly predict the winning lottery numbers and England adele baker dating in the dark to qualify for a adele baker dating in the dark sporting tournament without ballsing anything up. And yet by far the weirdest thing on TV last night was Living's Dating in the Dark. If you missed it, Dating in the Dark is basically Blind Date but, since this isthe contestants don't go home with an underwhelming camping weekend for two in Norfolk; instead they go home clutching the remnants of their shattered heart.

Metaphorically speaking, at least. Because, you see, Dating in the Dark is awful. The premise is a simple one: It's an amalgamation of several dating shows that came before it: It also online dating app hk in one brand new ingredient: You see, Dating in the Dark isn't really a dating show at all. It's a methodical psychological dismantling, a stern lesson that you should daying which rung you belong on and jolly well stay there.

It achieves this by pairing up a model-grade contestant whose attractiveness is constantly alluded to with a more normal-looking counterpart. The normals — in yesterday's case they were Claire and Andy; Andy's a man who, to deliberately misquote Kim Carneshas got Evan Davis eyes — are encouraged to believe they have a genuine chance to punch above their weight, only to have their hopes obliterated at the end when their partner recoils at the sight of them and then stands them up ahead of their final, full-vision date.

In fact, that's an understatement. The normals aren't just stood up — they are taken into a room where they can actually watch their partner stand them up. That's what happened dari Claire, and seeing her get rejected jn what appeared to be the millionth time was heartbreaking. Andy fared slightly better — his partner agreed to go on the final date with him, although her face and adele baker dating in the dark language suggested that she was only datng for the cameras to shut off so she could brutally destroy his heart forever in private.

Dating in the Dark is about as cruel as a dating show can get, at least until someone commissions a series called Let's All Laugh At This Ugly Idiot's Minuscule Penis. It's horrible, a show that you can only really view through the gaps in your fingers. Needless to say, I'll be watching again.
