Date My Family is an authentic South African dating format in its fourth season, and remains suitable for family viewing. In each episode, one bachelor or bachelorette shares meals with three different families in the hope that he or she will find their perfect match with that family’s suitor.


The bachelor or bachelorette doesn't get to see the suitors in each family, however, the suitors watch on screen from a separate location.   


During each family meal, the bachelors or bachelorette is given the opportunity to ask questions about the suitor to get a sense of the type of person they are, and based on this information, their final date selection is made.
