Show Details

Get ready for the most high-octane, extreme adventure dating competition on television. The Longest Date is an original format created for SABC 3 by Samantha and Graeme Moon.

With Christopher Jaftha as the host, who indeed adds to the attraction of the show. Over the course of 13 episodes, The Longest Date takes 16 ordinary, single South Africans on an epic journey;  a journey to face their fears in gruelling challenges and ultimately a journey to find love and claim the grand prize of one hundred thousand rand.

In a first of its kind, home-grown original format, The Longest Date takes 16 diverse, interesting but unlucky-in-love singles and matches them into couples. The eight new couples then embark on a journey to experience the most extreme adventures Mpumalanga has to offer, all the while trying to make a love match.

The Longest Date revels in extreme adventure, but the best moments come from couples finding love in the most unexpected locations. In watching the show, the viewer gets to share the same sense of wonder and excitement at falling in love under intense circumstances, while surely wondering if they could take on such insane tasks themselves. The Longest Date requires that our couples put themselves on the line, both figuratively and literally.

Fraught with drama, excitement and lots of real chemistry, the viewer will watch a romantic comedy play out in real life, with a cast of real people placed into extreme conditions.
