There will be a painless pre-date interview about your hopes and expectations for the date and after it's all over Jo will write about it. Don't worry – she's honest and kind-hearted.
The point of Taranaki on a Date is to not only show off our top blokes but showcase our beautiful province while tackling the big issues of our dating culture and the do's and don'ts of showing a girl a good time.
"I want guys to get inventive and come up with something really unique, fun and easy to do without it costing a whole heap of cash," Jo said.
"I'm doing this because I grew up in Taranaki and I know how much this place has to offer."
