New SABC3 extreme dating show calls for adventurous singles

It's all happening on the TV dating scene this month with castings for two new reality shows. 

The Bachelor SA wants single galz on M-Net and SABC3 wants adventurous hearts for a new format called The Longest Date. 

It's a dating reality show that follows couples on action-packed "extreme dating" experiences.

This is the format:

16 contestants, eight couples, will spend 14 days in Mpumalanga, exploring it in the most extreme way possible - abseiling, white-water rafting, bungee jumping, and more.

The show picks your perfect match to see how well you can do competing with the other couples. The winning couple gets to compete for R100 000, with twists along the way.

If you think you have what it takes to capture someone's heart while swinging from a bungee, this is what you need to know:

Who is the show looking for?

You need to be single and 25-years-old and above.

How to apply

You can submit your application on the show's official website here: The Longest Date Application Forms

Closing date for applications: 31 July 2018

You know what? I am tired! I am tired of these dating shows. First we were bombarded with wedding shows, then it was these shows blasting peoples issues now we've moved to dating shows. Where is the variety?
