About the Show

What do you get when you take two eligible bachelors (or bachelorettes), give each a $50 shopping budget, and ask them to plan and cook a romantic meal in hopes of winning over a blind date? Date Plate challenges two food-savvy contestants to do just that. They work within a budget – and against a clock – each cooking a special meal for a woman they've never met. The most delicious part is that the bachelors can see and learn about the bachelorette through a video greeting card, while she knows nothing about the men trying to woo her – except for their cooking skills, of course! She chooses her Romeo based solely on the meal he makes for her – a truly tasty twist on dating television.
