There was quite a high standard that was expected from Sunday night's episode of Date My Family & it wasn't even from the bachelor.
Viewers of Date My Family were clearly annoyed by the high standards that were set by some of the family representatives from each family, especially when it came to Sabelo's family.
On Sunday night we were introduced to a soft-spoken Dumi from Orange Farm. Dumi, who really didn't have high expectations when it came to the type of person he wants to date. Dumi was merely in search of someone he could vibe with, whilst on the other hand, the other three men who were his potential dates had other expectations in mind, especially when it came to 21-year-old Sabelo.
Sabelo who was represented by his close friend and brother, rubbed off Date My Family viewers the wrong way when Dumi immediately walked into their household. From Sabelo's facial expression, we could tell that he was not feeling Dumi at all, and his family echoed his exact sentiments.
The date became super awkward when Dumi mentioned that he was not choosey when it came the type of wine he enjoyed drinking, whether it was cheap or expensive wine it really did not matter as long as he enjoyed him a nice glass of wine. This clearly did not settle well with the family and with Sabelo as well. Dumi was even judged for wanting more wine from the family, wait, wasn't this supposed to be a dinner date?

Dating is a challenge on it own. When ppl bring std's, wine brand& qualifications you should know being single could be lifetime #DateMyFamily— Tata kaZamambo (@SthembisoMkhize) February 4, 2018
Anyway, Dumi had the perfect response for the family and mentioned that when he steps outside, no one will know whether he drank expensive or cheap wine and hence he was not fixated on the price tag when it came to his liquor.
Now that was a response that was admired by many.

Sabelo, on the other hand, received a few choice words from the public, even Boity chipped in as well.
This 21 year old from the 2nd is yet to experience the wrath of life. Smh. #DateMyFamily— Boity Thulo (@Boity) February 4, 2018
Looking down on someone because of their social & financial status ain't cool & doesn't make you any better. It's cool if you ain't like a person just don't look down upon them, Sabelo took it too far! #DateMyFamily— Regular Guy (@eemz_effekt) February 4, 2018
Now we know that there are a few wine connoisseurs out there who understand and appreciate the taste difference between cheap & expensive wine, but does the price of wine truly maketh a man?
We think not.
Thankfully, Dumi did not choose Sabelo and Sabelo was also as grateful that he was not the chosen one.
