Dating is so exciting. Especially when there are a few cameras pointed at you and your date. NU.nl speaks to two women who participated in a dating show not once, but twice.
For Nofer Biran, the invitation to participate has arrived First dates As a complete surprise. “I got an email out of nowhere from production. Apparently my friends thought it was time.”
Music star Mariska van Kolk also didn’t immediately know if she wanted to participate when she was asked to take on the VIP version of the show. “I always discuss everything with my children. They should not feel uncomfortable about it.” But Van Kolk himself has no problems appearing on television. “Not even when it comes to dating.”
To her great surprise, Van Kolk was pitted against someone who was not a good match for her at all. “On paper, you may have the same interests, but your physical energy is also very important in the match.” However, she tried to make something positive out of it. “But obviously this was not interesting enough, because Jill Belen’s date was shown on screen very often,” laughs the singer.
Eat in the warehouse for a maximum of 45 minutes
Unfortunately, Biran also didn’t get along with the man she encountered. Also, setting the date was not up to her expectations. “You’re on set for five hours, of which you spend a maximum of 45 minutes eating with your partner. The show is recorded in what looks like a warehouse, where I had to start a three-course meal at 11am.”
However, Biran does not lose hope. “I’m also a hopeless romantic, so I thought I’d try again.” On the second attempt, Biran scored himself in Long lasting loveYou spend at least 24 hours with an appointment at home. “The matching process was more thorough with this program. I noticed that in my mate as well, he was much more on my energy level. But unfortunately there was no romantic connection.”
Van Kolck was also up for a second try and when asked about the SBS daily dating show she said yes. But once again I encountered a negative appointment. He showed little initiative and answered her questions curtly. “I thought: ‘We’re here now, let’s just have fun.’ I was also surprised that he immediately wanted to have in-depth conversations. We don’t know each other, do we?”
“It’s like calling my mate a coward out of nowhere.”
Makers Long lasting love They face a huge challenge in editing the show, because all those 24-hour dates don’t fit into a half-hour broadcast. Beran noted that her appointment had “a lot of cutting and pasting.” “It makes it seem like I’m making my appointment Long lasting love “Out of nowhere, while he said this about himself many times.”
“There’s also a part where we’re lying in bed together. It’s set to sensual music, suggesting something intimate is happening, when that’s not the case at all.”
Van Kolk had to laugh about her broadcast and history. She told the man about her work in the theater and her role as a sea witch the little Mermaid. But that conversation was completely deleted from the broadcast. “Suddenly he called me a witch in the episode. Isn’t that funny?”

Contestants have finished dating on TV
Dating on TV again is not an option for Beran. “I think dating works better if I can choose where I go and with whom. You’re still aware of the cameras, even if they’re well hidden. Plus, you’re associated with people who almost don’t know you, even not after a period of time.” Wide Conversation the range.”
We will no longer see Van Kolk dating on TV. “I’m very happy with my circle of friends and my job. It’s been a special way to meet new people, but I prefer to choose them myself.”
