During their first blind encounter on the premiere of Dating in the Dark
last night, engineer Joey impressed blond bombshell Natasha with his "brutal honesty" philosophy. Unfortunately, Natasha later learned that Joey's honesty came coupled with a superficial, misogynist and downright cruel fixation about women's weight--an obsession he thought appropriate to share, at length, during their second date in the dark. At Natasha's expense.
Watch and try not to squirm as Joey admits to Natasha that he initially didn't want to date her because he thought she was "the floater" (as in, she wore a perma-ring around her waist) and then tells a lovely little story about his poor ex-girlfriend (who he says "blew up like a tick" over the course of their ill-fated relationship).
So it turned out Joey was the insect in this scenario, but don't feel too bad for Natasha: The first question he asked the ladies in the house was how they planned to take care of their bodies after having a baby. That was his FIRST question. And she still invited him on another rendezvous.Shockingly
, Joey went home alone at the end of the experiment, but that didn't change his mind about what he was looking for in a partner. As he left the Dating in the Dark
house, he proudly told the women of America to call him if they were "5'2'' and 100 pounds ... and I'll let you gain the extra ten."
