Date My Family helps ‘singletons’ find love by sending them on dates with their potential partner's family — but it looks like some contestants still sign up, despite having ‘partners’ already.
Take for instance last night’s bachelor Dumisani Nhlapo, a 28-year-old LGBTI activist from Orange Farm.
Dumisani seemingly didn't take into consideration that once you appear on the show, you can be sure the Twitter CIA will dig out any skeletons in your closet, and in this case it didn't take them very long to find Dumisani making a Facebook confession, screengrab and share it with the rest of DMF's fans. The post read: “Samkelo Bae don't be surprised on Sunday neh,” reads his facebook post. (sic)
And Twitter was not impressed by this discovery and started lambasting the show's producers.
That show is joke. It has lost all its credibility. Looks like all the producers ask participants is; DO YOU WANNA BE ON TV?
Hahahahahahahahaha... Tweeter investigators though....🙊🙊🙊🙊
Dumisani said he was looking for a smart, confident guy that is stylish too.
But Dumi’s dress sense quickly came into question.
eish,n the shoes are so ugly😳

Back to the show... Dumisani met Sabelo, who said he was a “rare diamond’.
The family was not very welcoming and were not impressed by Dumisani’s lack of “standards” because he drinks cheap wine. According to the family, Dumisani was not Sabelo’s type because he looked “broke”.
Just because someone doesn't have as much money as you do or isn't as priveleged as you are, it does not mean that they are of a low standard.this family just annoyed me.#DateMyFamily
This 2nd family is judgemental, pretentious and full of kak!!! #DateMyFamily
Very pretentious, at times people with money look down on people who have little. As if sum1 chooses to be poor, to live in the township or not to have an education. U can have all the money in the world or "standards" as they said but if you lack humility u are nothing.
Second family are bad hosts. What a boring date. #DateMyFamily
I love what Dumi said.”who’s gonna know how expensive the wine was when I step out?” #DateMyFamily
Then Dumisani met with Mduduzi’s family who were welcoming and he although he initially said Dumisani was “definitely not" his type, Mduduzi seemed a bit disappointed that he was the chosen one.
Lmao “He’s definitely not my type” 😂😂😂😂 Your Type is the reason you are single🤦🏾♂️ #DateMyFamily
“He doesn't look like my type at all,” said Evandre as Dumisani walked through the door.
But he seemed to have had a change of heart as he later said Dumisani is a “cool guy”. Evandre’s family represented him very well as Dumisani chose him.
The duo looked happy on their first date, but as for the second date, we will just have to wait and see.
