Thembinkosi chooses Penelope for a disastrous date on Date My Family
One of the few things that I look forward to doing every week is watching an episode of Date My Family, it’s definitely one of the highlights for my whole week.
Tonight, we saw Thembinkosi Sikuphela, a Digital Media Coordinator and Businessman, looking for love.
He has been single for 18 months., and his last relationship broke down because Thembinkosi is an atheist, and his ex was on a spiritual journey of finding herself, and she also was a church goer and into God.
Thembinkosi’s ideal woman is smart, can carry a conversation and be clued up about stuff. A deal breaker for him is someone ignorant.
As per usual Thembinkosi had to meet 3 women’s families (and friends) and have lunch with them. Though he can’t meet the singles, he learns about them through their loved ones.
On his quest for love, he met Amanda who hails from Centurion, Thandi from Kempton Park and final bachelorette Penny from Joburg.
Thembinkosi chose Penny (Penelope Machete) as the woman that he saw potential with, and to say that the date was a disaster is an understatement. She was practically very rude and insensitive, and pretty much insulting the guy every chance she got.
Thembinkosi seems like a nice guy, but he never really got a chance with any of the families, because he didn’t come in the package of hot guy, that society dictates.
Twitter was not impressed with Penny and her treatment of Thembinkosi, here is what some had to say:
#DateMyFamily I don’t care who says what but no man deserves such treatment period, just bcos they don’t meet your standards…?

If a guy isn’t your type, you don’t have to be harsh. Be nice and keep it moving #DateMyFamily
