World Series of Dating is a British comedic speed dating reality television show.
Several young men compete to be judged best dater by four young women they date during the show. It is presented by Rob Riggle, Tom Price and Thaila Zucchi. Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike License; additional terms may apply.
In 2007, Zucchi entered the Big Brother UK house, pretending to be Pauline, a housemate from Australian Big Brother.
Contestants are members of the public on first dates, but the setup is anything but real, with Torchwood star Tom Price playing the role of UK correspondent James Chetwynd-Talbot and Thaila Zucchi (Star Stories, Balls of Steel) as a touchline reporter.
Women cast especially for the role sit in ‘The Date Zone’ waiting for their first guy to appear.
From the moment the single men walk into the zone the women can decide to buzz them out of the game for whatever reason they wish.
“World Series Of Dating” sees dating turned into a competitive sport, American style, with all of the sporting conventions that go with it – overblown graphics, music and scripted comedy analysis.
The dates are real (real people on real first dates) and it all happens in ‘The Date Zone’.
