Following the success of season one of Dinner Date South Africa, the popular dating competition series returns to screens with a new lineup of daters willing to host a blind date in their homes in their quest to find a partner.

Dinner Date follows one person who has the chance to find true love over three meals, each cooked by a blind date in their own home.

In each episode, a participant will choose three menus from five put together by prospective partners. They then go on three dates with the chefs, who cook them a meal in their own homes.

After the three dates, all the chefs prepare for a night out at a swanky restaurant, but the participant can only choose one to go – leaving the other two to a night in alone and a takeaway.
