First Dates viewers slam hopeful's "evil" scratchcard prank

Risky pranking someone on a first date!

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."

Hahahaha that's 10000% a FAKE scratchcard.

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.

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."
