After DisMissed, MTV began producing a wide slate of reality dating competition shows. One of the first was Taildaters, a reality show that followed a first date plus commentary from each of the daters’ best friends. The best friends would follow the date from a van, the first time a vehicle would be introduced to the MTV dating show formula, something most likely copied from another syndicated dating show, Blind Date spin-off The Fifth Wheel, and soon to be omnipresent on all MTV dating shows.
What if you were sent on a first date, with your closest friends spying on you from a stakeout bus…paging with their advice…but never exposing who they are until the end of the date?
