“As a top-rated W Network series, Come Dine With Me Canada continues to keep audiences laughing. You can’t have too much of a good thing, so we’re delighted to bring Come Date With Me to the network this winter,” said Vibika Bianchi, Vice President, Original Programming, Lifestyle, Reality, Factual Entertainment, Corus Entertainment. “What Come Dine With Me has done for dinner parties, Come Date With Me will do for the dating genre. This new series brings dating to a playful and highly entertaining place that doesn’t take itself too seriously.”
“If you are a fan of Come Dine With Me, you will love Come Date With Me,” says Guy O’Sullivan, President of Proper Television. “It will bring the same playful touch that has made Come Dine With Me such a success. It really is a dating show with a difference.”
Come Date With Me combines the cooking, criticizing and competition of Come Dine With Me and adds a new twist – romance. Four eligible bachelors compete to win the heart of one woman – or vice versa – as they each take her out on fun, adventurous dates then cook for her in their own homes. The catch? These kitchen Casanovas have to cook for their fellow male suitors as well! Our bachelorette rates each date and dinner and the bachelor who captures her heart will share $1,000 on the ultimate dream date.
ITV Studios’ Come Date With Me format is distributed by ITV Studios Global Entertainment and is in production in the UK and Australia.
Proper Television is currently casting for single candidates with a passion for cooking and entertaining in the Greater Toronto Area who aren’t afraid to lay it on the line and fall in love in the process.
