Woman Invites Hundreds Of Men On Tinder Date For A Dating Competition

August 21, 2018

A woman identified as Natasha Aponte used Tinder to invite several dozen guys on a simultaneous date in New York City this past Sunday afternoon, leaving her targets bewildered by the stunt. The date turned out to be an event that the host described as “Live Tinder,” a real-life game show of sorts that resembled a cross between The Bachelorette and Catfish. In the end, it’s hard to pick a winner here, but it’s looking good for Natasha.

Several attendees have spoken up about what happened on Sunday night, and their stories sound quite similar. One of them described his experience matching with someone named Natasha on Tinder several weeks ago. She first proposed getting a drink, but then said she’d be working on “a big presentation” for work and would get back in touch when she had time. Two weeks later, Natasha proposed that the man meet her in Union Square, where her friend was DJing “around 6” on Sunday. They could meet in public and then “head out” on the date. Seems like a relatively normal Tinder exchange.

It wasn’t. The Tinder user showed up to find “a stage and a DJ and about 100 ppl and cameras and shit.” Soon thereafter, Natasha showed up on stage and explained that she had invited all of the men on the same Tinder date. She appeared to be flanked by security guards and arrived with another woman dressed in a referee shirt. Natasha proceeded to inform the group of men that they can compete for a date with her, although the crowd has already thinned considerably by the time she got to the rules. One guy unsuccessfully attempted to start a “Bullshit!” chant. Natasha then started sending men away. Trump supporters were sent away. Men named “Jimmy” were sent away. Men who smoked or drank heavily were sent away. Men under 5'10" were sent away. By the time the physical challenges started, it looked like only about two dozen guys were left. The sprinting competition, which took place after the pushup contest, is particularly hard to watch.
