Series 3 of First Dates Hotel has been eventful so far, to say the least.
Episode 6 brought with it international sales executive, Othello.
At 23 years old, Othello started losing his hair which had an effect on his dating life.
I love the name Othello #FirstDatesHotel

Othello And Juliette
Othello was matched with 26-year-old Juliette from London.
Juliette also opened up about her insecurities on their first date, including her previous relationships with liars and cheaters.
Once Othello got his all-important question out the way things were looking up for the Shakespearian couple.
Even though Juliette admitted she’d prefer a man with hair, Othello had a lot more to offer than a nice hair-do.
Othello Made a Mess
Although Othello came across as confident on his first date he managed to dig himself a huge hole which left the whole nation cringing.
I think Othello is crashing and burning. #FirstDatesHotel

Things started to go left when Othello breached the subject of weight.
Now the sales exec certainly didn’t mean to land himself opposite his ideal woman giving him a screwface, but he did.
Othello said he’s “lucky that he doesn’t gain weight easily” before the whole conversation spiralled out of control and Juliette popped off to the toilet.
The Nerves Took Over
Yes, Othello you did go off on a bit of a tangent there.
While Juliette was gone, Othello got so nervous on his date that at one point told himself: “Calm the f*** down, bruv.”
Luckily, Juliette arrived back from the loo and after some wise words from Fred Sirieix, Othello pulled Juliette’s chair out for her.
So Did He Screw Up Royally?
With the ‘fat-blip’ forgotten and Othello ordering a round of Juliette’s favourite cocktails he managed to pull it back.
It seems that Othello’s great humour and ability to embrace his premature balding won over brunette beauty, Juliette.
She found her Romeo after all!
Othello didn’t stop with the charm all night.
It’s safe to say his sales skills probably came in handy.
The pair went for a facial the next day and connected even more.
With Juliette even cracking jokes at Othello’s expense.
Juliette said she wished she’d bought swimwear so that she could jump in the pool but she was put off by the idea of getting her hair wet.
The lovebirds ended up going on a date back in their shared hometown of London.
Let’s just hope Othello doesn’t begin any more awkward conversations that he can’t handle.
