The date with Natasha was fantastic.  When the production team of TMB told me that most of the footage from my date with Natasha was damaged in the uploading process I was really bummed out because I feel like Natasha and I had a natural chemistry that doesn't really show in the footage we had left.  I will try my best to describe how great it was here and hope there will be a second date so we have another chance to show how much of a connection we have on the screen. Since I watched the Season Premiere I was really excited to meet the beautiful brunette that kicked butt at Roller Derby.  I have to admit an athletic and competitive girl has always been very attractive to me.

Natasha is a super fun girl with a ton going on for herself.  As soon as I opened the door the date started off wonderfully and just continued to get better and better.  The best thing that I remember about picking her up was the beautiful and enchanting smile she had when I opened the door.  As soon as we got to the car we started talking about each others' passions and interests.  Natasha had planned a wonderful date - we drove down to Anaheim to a restaurant called the White House and then spent some time in Downtown Disney.  I know this is kinda of sad after such a well thought out date, but the drive down was one of the most interesting parts. The traffic was absolutely terrible and a drive that should have taken us no more than 40 minutes took us nearly 2 hours because of Southern California traffic.  We were laughing the whole time mostly with each other but often at each other as well.  

When we finally arrived to the restaurant we were greeted by the owner and founder which was a really cool experience.  The dinner was wonderful and one thing among many that I loved about Natasha was that she wasn’t afraid to try Escargot for the first time.  We enjoyed sharing our dinners and getting to know each other throughout the entire meal.  After dinner we went to Downtown Disney.  When anywhere near Disneyland I turn into a little kid so she chose a very good place to take me.  There was live music, people and the best of all the fireworks.  Before the fireworks started Natasha bought me Mickey Ears and bought herself some as well.  Watching the fireworks with Natasha was spectacular and majestic.   Being around her was so natural and easy that there is no doubt in my mind that I will ask her back for a second date.  I hope she accepts my invitation...

"The footage was damaged in the uploading process"?? What a joke. The production value of this entire thing has been a joke. All of the other contestants got a fair shot, but because Natasha's footage was "damaged", you had to fill five minutes with him detailing every aspect of their food? No footage from Downtown Disney at all?
Natasha totally got jipped, which is a shame because now no one will get to see what she's really like. She got completely short changed. If I were her, I'd be so ticked off about the "footage being damaged" that I wouldn't even accept a second date.

I think Bone Junior should get her money back.

Sounds like a great date. I've definitely not seen Chris laughing or enjoying himself so much on any of the dates so far. Natasha could be a winner!

Part of this video were excruciating and parts of it were laughable. Excruciating: The description of the food?? Awesome, great, nice, cool. Bleck. Laughable: Definitely not the Natasha I know. Besides, he doesn't really strike me as her type.

Wow...so much anger with the above comment! Hopefully Natasha is in this for more than the film exposure. I thought they both seemed cute together and a bit smitten by one another. However, I agree a new film company might be in order.....the footage has been sketchy this season.

Has anyone else noticed that the audio does not match their lips moving in all the episodes? For instance, in this date during her interview in THE BATHROOM! The Bathroom? What's up with doing the interview on the toilet seat next to a role of TP?

I'm with Bone Junior when she says the entire project value is a joke.

Eh Life happens. If I was Natasha i'd be thrilled knowing the footage was damaged, then i'd not have anyone judging me or being negative in anyway about my date. Heck Kudos Chris you finally get a break and a little bit of privacy with this date hehe. (I bet it feels nice knowing all the negative comments are for once not about you ;)) Film crew i feel is great and keep up good work : )

I saw chemistry in what footage they had. They seem to like each other. Also some people on here are quick at throwing stones. Things happen, over all great job..

Wow. I have been waiting for this date for weeks and I am so incredibly disappointed. Natasha's personality didn't get to shine through AT ALL. How is it that her footage was lost?? Production really is terrible. The "description of their food" that lasted 20 minutes was torture. I could tell Chris was smitten as a kitten over her and I just wish that you were able to see her personality more.

What's most unfortunate about the production of TMB is they don't post when they say they're going to. What ever happened to dates on Monday, Wednesday, Friday? Now we're at Tuesdays and Thursdays? It's a really great concept, but you'd think these kinks would be worked out by season 4.

I was super disappointed about the damaged footage (how does it even get damaged? Can't you just re-upload it?). It made me a little suspicious too.

As a friend of Natasha's, I was really looking forward to seeing her date and her hilarious personality, not him blandly describing the food. Definitely a let down.
