Season 8

Date My Family is a South African dating game show produced by Connect TV in which singles who are looking for love are sent on dates with the families of three potential partners, and must decide who to date based solely on the impression their family gives.

Forget about the "two people meet each other" typical love story. It's now a full-on family affair.

In each episode, audiences are introduced to a bachelor/bachelorette who's looking for love. That singleton is then sent on three dates – to meet the families of three potential partners.

The twist in the tale? The bachelor/bachelorette must choose just one potential partner who they think they'll hit it off with – based solely on what the families say and do. But will they make the right choice?

The three potential partners are kept out of sight, watching the action unfold onscreen, as the bachelor/bachelorette engages with their respective family.

They secretly hope that their families paint them in the best possible light and make a good first impression.

With no communication at all between the bachelor/bachelorette and the potential partners, the scene is set for an unforgettable final date.

Expect laughs and drama as Cupid gets a helping hand from brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, moms, dads, nieces, nephews, cousins and of course, grandparents.

At the end the day, the question remains: will it love at first hello - or a fast goodbye?

In the Season 8 premiere we meet bachelor Mbulelo Mdeleni, who lives in Soweto.

He says he was raised with traditional values and he doesn't want to date a slay queen because he can't afford one.

Date My Family is produced for Mzansi Magic by Connect TV. The executive producers are Clifford Elk, Basetsana Kumalo and Kopano Gelman.
