First Dates viewers slam hopeful’s “evil” scratchcard prank

Risky pranking someone on a first date!

| Updated:

First Dates brought together two hopefuls called Georgia on last night’s show (April 16th), and as if that wasn’t enough, they already knew each other!

The pair said hello with a somewhat awkward hug and revealed, when they sat down and a waiter asked about their connection: “She kind of dated my niece. My sister’s 40.”

At that, the other Georgia clarified: “We didn’t date, we just had a ‘thing’.”

The two Georgias really hit it off, sharing a natural chemistry that quickly put them both at ease.

Things got a bit weird though when one Georgia gave the other a scratchcard that appeared to be a winner – for £100,000!

Unfortunately for that Georgia, it turned out to be nothing more than a cruel prank, as the scratchcard was a fake.

Viewers on Twitter reacted to the trick with disbelief and slammed that Georgia for being so mean.

One wrote: “Honestly, I would’ve binned off anyone who pulled that fake scratchcard gag #FirstDates.”

Another said: “I really fell for that scratchcard win of £100k. Finding out it was fake, I’d just walk out on my date just from sheer disappointment of all the things I can’t buy with no £100k lol #FirstDates.”

A third wrote: “Fake scratchcard… Scratch her eyes out Georgia!”

Someone else tweeted: “What the actual?! I hope that’s not a fake scratchcard… that would be an evil thing to do! #FirstDates.”

But some found the prank hilarious and poked fun at other viewers for falling for it.

One said: “Hahahaha that’s 10000% a FAKE scratchcard.”

A second tweeted alongside a crying-laughing emoji: “Imagine giving someone a fake scratchcard on a date, how’d you react! #FirstDates”

Another commented: “Seriously, that girl just won £100,000 on a £1 scratchcard from her date on #FirstDates? I’d be asking her to go halvers… and on the bill.”

– First Dates is on again next Tuesday (April 23rd) at 10pm on Channel 4
