The Studio B of TV3 was agog with excitement at the maiden shoot of its riveting dating and reality program, Date Rush. The audience at the studio were treated to a fun-filled atmosphere by the bachelors and the 10 intelligent ladies who were desirous of getting a date.
Two eligible bachelors, Edem and Sparkles stepped up to the challenge to wow and rouse the ladies for a date.
Edem was the first to attempt to mesmerize a lady out of the 10 bevvies of beauties. However, he got lights turned off by six of the ladies signifying a rejection by them or simply put they were not ready for a date with him. He was therefore left with the difficult task of convincing the four remaining ladies for a date. He then had to, through interactions and conversations with the ladies on their hobbies and lifestyles make the difficult decision of taking one of the obviously beautiful ladies for a date.
Sparkles had the difficult task of the two bachelors. He made a rather grand appearance on stage with a dance to the admiration of the date awaiting ladies. He is good looking, affable with a great personality. His dancing and other talents on display had all the lights on from the ladies. This means he was in the driving seat since he had all 10 ladies to choose from. The burden now had to shift to the ladies who must display their talent, skill, personality to now convince him to choose one of them for a date. It was a pretty hilarious but difficult sight to behold with the ladies stretching out their hands and doing all in their power to catch the eyes of their potential date. He was finally able to get his date to the admiration of the audience in the studio. This, however, was not without drama as one of the ladies burst into tears apparently for not being the lucky one chosen for the date. It was quite an emotional moment for the audience whose simultaneous reactions was overwhelming.
The maiden one-hour show was show on Friday at 20:00 GMT on TV3. The host of the show, Nii Kpakpo Thompson was in his usual joviality elements as he treated fun-filled fun filled night.
