Fans of First Dates were treated to a new method of paying the bill – and something we had never seen before on reality TV.
Series 10 of the popular Channel 4 dating series has sparked continual debates over who should pay the bill.
Currently, there are three bill-paying scenarios to contest; the man pays the full bill, the woman pays the full bill, and the bill is split by ‘going Dutch’.
Thanks to Ketan, however, there is one more variant…
Step 1: Hook Them In
The 31-year-old data analyst, who has autism, had social media in shock when it came to the end of the date.
First, Ketan admitted to waitress CiCi that he had forgotten all of his bank cards and cash.
Not the smoothest date move in the book and Twitter was quick to judge.
Noooooooo 🙈🙈🙈🙈 he’s not forgotten his card!!! Ketan #Firstdates

Step 2: Pitch the Play
Although sporting a reasonably confused and off-put face, date Brodie instantly reached for her card and passed it to the waitress to pay the full bill.
Like a magician that had timed his performance expertly, Ketan lead with “put the card down, please” before switching gears into swagger mode.
Step 3: Run the Show
Ketan knew his 16-digit card number off by heart, seriously putting to shame the type of people who can’t remember their pin numbers.
With his date in shock, Ketan paid the full bill by manually entering all of his card details.
Who could say no to a move like that!
