“Take Me Out” is a popular dating game show from Fremantle Media which began airing in the United Kingdom last January 2 of this year. GMA Network will air its localized format this April 2010, with singer Jay-R as the host.
The game starts with a mystery guy impressing 30 single ladies through a series of videos and interviews about him. If the ladies don’t like what they see, they switch off their lights along with his chance of taking them out. At the end of the game, the guy will have to choose a date from the women who leave their lights on.
The show promises to be visually appealing and fun for everyone involved.
It’s been a while since a dating game show was aired on Philippine television. The most popular perhaps was “It’s A Date” which was hosted by Plinky Recto and aired on RPN 9 in the 90s. The last dating game show that we’ve seen was Mysmatch which was hosted by Iya Villania and Archie Alemania and aired on TV5.
“Take Me Out” is set to premiere on GMA-7 this month. Here’s a sneak peek on the set:
