Get a hilariously unfiltered look at the joys and heartbreaks of modern dating with Dating – No Filter, an outrageously candid unscripted blind dating series premiering from 26 June 2020 at 7.30pm on SABC3.
Let’s be real… dating is not the fantasy that TV makes it out to be. Instead, it’s an absolute awful show of X-rated pics, ghosting and one night stands. Finally, an honest voice is coming to take on modern TV dating.
In each episode of Dating – No Filter, three pairs of comedians deliver entertaining play-by-play commentary as they watch real singles navigate first dates, or at least try to date. The outspoken comedians hold nothing back, offering up their hysterically honest opinions on every awkward interaction and heart-warming moment as the singles strive to find love.
It’s everything you and your friends are already screaming at the TV during “real” dating shows; the funny, the cringe-worthy and the brutally honest. Welcome to Dating #NoFilter.
