Mateo From First Dates Ireland Chats To iRadio in the Morning Live From His Bed!
Aidan and Oonagh caught up with the super sexy Maitre’D Mateo Saina for a live chat to talk about the return of our favourite Irish dating reality tv show. The fuse is lit and First Dates returned for a scorching new season, lighting up Thursday nights with a conflagration of fiery first impressions, burning hearts and old flames.
First Dates Ireland is an intoxicating blend of flirtation, faux-pas, doorway malfunctions, fluttering nerves and the tantalising prospect of second dates as Ireland’s most romantic restaurant reopens at 9.30pm on Thursday nights
This year, the game of love has new regulations. Daters are suitably distanced, contact is strictly off the cards, and background diners are all family bubbles, among them, friends and family of the daters we meet. On hand as always with warm welcomes, words of encouragement, and matchmaking savoir faire are Maitre’D Mateo and master-mixologist Ethan – ably assisted by Alice and Pete.
In last night’s episode we saw Shane (35) from Meath who bravely re-enters the dating scene with level-headed single mum Avril (35) from Dublin. Bubbly Amy (27) from Dublin is prepared for just about anything but will she be dazed and confused in the presence of reformed party-boy Sean (26) from Blanchardstown? Westeros meets the Wild Atlantic Way as Game of Thrones actor Tim (54) from Tralee auditioned for a place in the heart of outgoing painter decorator Rory (48) from Sligo. Tracy (26) from Dublin arrives in a red dress in search of a redhead as Rob (26) from Cork gingerly attempts to rock her world.
