Dating Show Announcers Flabbergasted by Nerds Interacting Cheerfully and Openly


From Massively, comes this clip of World Series of Dating, a British half-hour speed dating show where “several young men compete to be judged best dater by four young women they date during the show.” So, all the stress of speed dating with none of the comfort of not having it ever be broadcast on nation-wide telly. These two young folks seem to find something in common fairly quickly, though, much to the bewilderment of the announcers.

And yes, that is Rob Riggle, who should really know better after shilling for Call of Duty.

    To be fair, that commentator is definitely PC Andy, so he probably has seen the Tardis appear in the middle of modern-day Cardiff.

     I interpreted it as “help! I don’t know any of those words!”

    And yes, it was wonderful.

    They sounded more confused by the jargon to me, but I’ve never seen that show, and it’s hard to judge intentions based solely on two sentences.
