Hell Date was a dating show that aired on BET in 2007, hosted by comedian Chris Hollyfield. The premise of the show was to trick unsuspecting individuals into going on a date with someone who was chosen for them by the producers, but with a twist - the date was designed to be an absolute nightmare. The show aimed to test how the individual on the date would react when things don't go as planned.

Each episode of Hell Date featured two segments, each with a different individual or couple being set up on a Hell Date. In each segment, the unsuspecting individual would be brought to a location, which was set up to look like a stereotypical, over-the-top romantic date setting. However, from the moment they arrived, things would start to go wrong, in a funny and exaggerated way.

For example, in one episode, a man was set up on a date with a woman who turned out to be a germaphobe. Throughout the date, he was made to do things that made her extremely uncomfortable, like accidentally spilling food on her, germinating when they touched, or sneezing on the table. In another episode, a man was set up on a date with a woman who claimed to be a former professional football player but was actually a drag queen in disguise.

As the date went on, things would continue to go wrong, and the unsuspecting individual would become progressively more uncomfortable and frustrated. The show would cut to interviews with the individual throughout the date, providing commentary on what they were experiencing and how they were feeling.

Towards the end of the date, the individual would be let in on the joke and informed that they were on a Hell Date. Chris Hollyfield would then enter the scene and provide some lighthearted humor, before revealing the true identity of their date.

The show was well-received upon its debut, earning praise for its clever premise and Chris Hollyfield's comedic talent. The show also garnered a notable celebrity following, with guests like comedian Kevin Hart and musician Ne-Yo appearing in later episodes.

Overall, Hell Date was a unique twist on the classic dating show format, providing a fun and entertaining take on the awkwardness that can come with dating. While the show only lasted for one season, it remains a cult classic and a beloved piece of early 2000s BET programming.

Hell Date is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (124 episodes). The series first aired on July 9, 2007.
