‘First Dates’ Episode Guide (May 19): Dating After Divorce

“I Take a Lot of Selfies” (05/19/17) – One dater talks about her insecurities that stem from being bullied as a child, but her date showers her with compliments to get her to open up. At another table we meet a medium who is trying to meet someone who understands his unique talents and another table opens up to each other about the struggles of dating after a divorce.

Everyone can relate to the experience of a first date: the promise of potential love when it goes well and the hilariously awkward moments if it crashes and burns. From executive producer Ellen DeGeneres, narrated by Drew Barrymore and based on the hit U.K. format, this new series offers a voyeuristic look at a variety of real first dates happening throughout one night at the same restaurant in Chicago.

The daters are of all ages, backgrounds and from across the U.S. The audience will be along for the ride in a refreshingly authentic viewing experience that plays like a real-life romantic comedy. At the end of each episode, we will find out if the participants want to see each other again for a second date or if they head back to love’s drawing board.

“First Dates” is executive produced by Ellen DeGeneres and Jeff Kleeman for A Very Good Production, Pam Healey and John Hesling for Shed Media, Tim Carter for Twenty Twenty. Anthony Dominici also serves as executive producer.
