First Dates Contestant Removes Her Wig And Everyone Is Crying
First Dates is one of these shows that has the audience hooked! In this episode a contestant of Channel 4’s brought viewers to tears when she revealed she had no hair to her date.
Eve Betts nervously explained to her date Jordan that she’d had alopecia ever since she was three, while removing her wig.
The-22-year-old was inspired to make the decision after Jordan her, date, from south Wales, told her he used to sport a top-knot.
“This is probably the weirdest date I’ve ever been on,” Eve said after opening up about her condition.
Eve explained to viewers how having no hair left her the target of bullies.
“One of the main reasons I wanted to do beauty was because I went through school and I was bullied. I didn’t have any eyebrows.
“I don’t ever feel upset about it. [But] it’s really hard. My parents have to save really hard for me to have nice hair.
“My dad, he works so hard. He drew on my first set of eyebrows. I’d love somebody like my dad – a bit taller, but he’s got no hair like me, so somebody with a bit more hair to give our kids a chance.”
The two didn’t go on a second date but Jordan called her ‘unique’ and ‘beautiful’.
But people were clearly moved to tears by the contestant:
