During the dating portion of the evening, a predetermined group of individuals will stay seated at the same tables throughout the night, while the rest of the participants will move from table to table.When the allotted time is up, the host will ring a buzzer or bell signifying that it is time to move to the next date. What it took Twitter to showcase is that Chrissy—model, mother, and wife of Oscar-winning singer-songwriter John Legend—is also hysterical.A few years ago she tweeted, “I always have a note in my pocket that says “john did it” just I case I’m murdered because I don’t want him to remarry #truelove #tips.”When she was pregnant with her daughter Luna, she wrote, “I need a bikini wax but I feel like I should wait for my epidural because THAT IS GENIUS???” On the way home from the hospital after giving birth, she said, “no one told me I would be coming home in diapers too.”I’ve always thought the secret to a happy couple was laughter, so when I needed a friend for a speed-dating themed episode of , I immediately thought of Chrissy.Here's the premise: I hid Chrissy in a back room of a restaurant that served as a sort of Cupid’s mission control.In case you missed it, here's the premise: I hid Chrissy in a back room of a restaurant that served as a sort of romance mission control.It was hooked up to monitors watching a couple on a date, including one who is wearing a tiny, unnoticeable earpiece, listening to Chrissy give her own brand of original, non-traditional dating tips.
For the uninitiated, this is how our speed dating works: 35 or so women and 35 or so men sign up for the event, and we set them up based on age and literary interest.
Now, for the last installment in the series, Chrissy chaperones Jonathan on a series of speed dates with some of L. Turns out the model’s methods aren't typical—at one point, Jonathan has to sniff a date's hair—but we think one of Chrissy’s arrows may have ultimately landed.
Her grasp of pop culture and keen eye for social interactions are comedy gold.
At the end of the night, participants turned in a provided list of all the people of the opposite sex, indicating who they were interested in talking to again.
(We did one of these events for queer women, but most of them were for straight men and women and most of my observations come from that.) If both participants indicated interest, each received the other’s email address and they’re invited to take it from there.
