Fans of First Dates embarked on an unusual journey during episode three, witnessing a pair of love-hopefuls realise that they could be related.
Towering duo Will and Jordan had the romance squeezed out of their dinner date when it became apparent they had a little too much in common.
Needless to say, this wasn’t in the script…
Those two on #firstdates are deffo related 😂

Smash & Grab
We first met 24-year-old Jordan opening up to the First Dates barman about her past relationships.
While the 6ft beauty didn’t reveal the type of man she usually goes for, her honest confessions sounded as if she was more used to dating cavemen.
Let’s just hope her next date isn’t as keen on carb loading…
Jordan confessed that she wanted a tall and confident man to match her towering size, preferably over 6ft3.
A tall order, you may think.
Not for a giant 6ft8 basketball player who has enough confidence to rock a sleeveless shirt.
Jordan sprayed a couple cheeky squirts of mouth freshener as 28-year-old Will approached, although the initial conversation wasn’t tainted at all.
With height in common, the baller and beauty bounced off one-other with compliments.
Jordan googled height reduction surgery…😳😄 she looks like a model though…💁🏽♀️😍 #FirstDates

Oh, Yes Son
The super-cool duo continued to click over dinner, with Jordan citing a certain TLC song to describe her ex-boyfriend, and Will singing along to the lyrics.
This is how you seamlessly mix a 1990’s R&B song into a conversation.
Disclaimer: You and your partner probably couldn’t get away with doing this in public. You’re not that cool.
Any person who brings in TLC lyrics into a conversation about how she’s ended up single is a keeper 😂😭 #FirstDates

Oh, NO Son
Despite the dinner looking as if it was running a lot smoother than Jordan’s last dating experience involving mash, a trip to the bathroom soon set off a series of unfortunate events.
First, Jordan confessed to her friend that date Will reminded her of her brother, Elliott.
this couple on First Dates have to be related somehow, surely

Things got worse when the pair exchanged last names.
You guessed it.
The same last name!
But are the Reids related though?? 😂 #FirstDates

From here, the date failed to pick back up, with Jordan admitting that her dates resemblance to her brother was “freaking her out”.
They even traced similar family roots back to Kingston in Jamaica!
Let’s Just Leave it There
With Jordan citing a lack of romance to the decline of their date, the pair decided not to see each other again.
Then again, they may bump into each other at a family party sometime soon.
Look at this photo of Jordan and her brother, how weird is this!
I’m stunned at how near identical her brother and her date looked 😱 #firstdates
