We've often wondered if they are real. Does the bachelor really get the girl at the end of it all? Do dating shows really end in happily ever after or is it all just for TV?
One couple has proved they work for those who come in ready for the real thing. They both participated in Moja Love's Single and Mingle, a blind date show that pairs people looking for love.
When Stephen Monoki (26) and NKhensane Mathebula (23) entered the show, they weren't sure what they would get. Millions of South Africans were said they just weren't a good fit and when they decided they'd continue to mingle after the cameras were turned off, some believed it would end in tears.
