What everyone’s saying about Date My Family

The ever-popular Mzansi Magic dating show is back from its break to help singletons in their quest to find true love … and as always, the results have got people talking.

Sailing into its seventh season, Date My Family’s mission is to help that odd Romeo meet his equally odd Juliet and see the two run off into the sunset together. Okay, it’s not exactly like that, but you have to kiss a few frogs before Prince Charming swoops in to whisk you away to the land of lurve, right? The only catch is, it could be up to the (fairy god-)mother or the evil stepsisters to decide the lovers’ fate!

When and where to watch

You can catch Date My Family S7 on Sunday 9 June on Mzansi Magic (161) at 18:00, but if you’re new to the dating show that helps singles find their partners based purely on the input and opinions of their families, binge-watch the series from the beginning on Showmax. It’s also available on Catch Up and online with DStv Now.

And the Tweeps have spoken

You know a show’s a success when it gets people talking, and Twitter just about goes into meltdown after each Date My Family episode. Here are a few of our favourite Twitter takedowns when the guests on the show have had us gasping for air.

Remember the guy who didn’t get the memo that this was national TV? Nkanyiso, who boasts three baby mamas, just didn’t click with Nelly after their date.

Like attracts like, they say. So of course we were not shocked to see these two get on like a house on fire. Perhaps it’s a bit shallow but what the viewers liked even more than their chemistry was the matching gold teeth, aptly dubbing them “the golden couple”.

Moral of the story here: be careful who you choose to represent you to your potential date. This Tweet was inspired by that moment when one of the girl’s friends revealed a little bit too much.

If you’re wondering what the friend said, wonder no more – she just made it clear that her friend is an outgoing person who likes to drink every Saturday night and that the guy had better be fine with that.

Not all girls want diamonds and pearls. Some just want a toy on four wheels.
