What Happens When You Do A Secret Podcast on Your Tinder Date

image

I went on an undercover Tinder date last Sunday for my podcast You Up? The Podcast. It was almost like Blind Date meets Punk’d, but instead of Ashton Kutcher jumping out of the bushes, it was just my podcast co-host Dave.

Oh and since I embarrassed Dave… this is me:

Luckily, my date was a great sport, and great company. After some technical difficulties (my mic somehow got muted) and then fixing it in what my date described as, “the world’s fastest bathroom break.” My date and I got to your standard first date small talk like how Tinder is becoming almost too much, and what exactly are in McDonald’s hamburgers or what happens when you google your social security number? (Mine’s a phone number, while his was a stock photo of leaves) all while Dave and his buddy Gilbert provided commentary. The whole time I was nervous… when should I tell him?  Then he brought up reality TV and that felt like my cue to blurt out, “hey! Guess what?! You’re on my podcast! Surprise!”

His face dropped. Is he going to pour his glass of Sauvignon Blanc on my face? I wondered. Well it’s okay if he does. I have a 6PM at Drybar anyway. It was a shame I ruined this picturesque moment.  It was a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon as we sat in the courtyard of Vaucluse Lounge in West Hollywood.

After a series of, “you’re not mad are you?” And “No it’s fine, just don’t use my name,” “I promise we won’t. So you’re not mad?” We then brought my date on to the podcast, that was not at all discretely set up in the corner. Dave and I interviewed my date about his experiences on Tinder and Hinge, then Dave went on to explain the importance of “managing,” women, which we all agreed was a sentence Dave should never utter again.

Will we go on a second date? Well tune in next week to find out.
