The dating show ended up a blast. The next one is happening on the 10th of February.
— ≈50 people showed up in total: 5 participants on stage, ≈40-45 in the audience. That’s 1.5× more than we expected
— Got 11 people on manifold.love: 3 women while talking about the show, 7 men signed up after the show + I myself signed up before the show
— Lots of positive feedback from participants and attendees: people want more!
— No matches between people on stage, but one of the participants ended up getting a date with someone from the audience.
I had participants permission to take photos and record video and publicly share (with the right to vet what’s getting shared). I recorded ≈30 minutes of the video with some interesting moments, such as:
— Nathan freestyle rapping about prediction markets
— A fun unhinged answer to the question “What’s the craziest thing you did for love”
— Various prediction markets discussions and dynamics, like Nathan intentionally betting up a probability of a match with Mel, a woman participating in the show.
— People talking about manifold.love as the product and endorsing it while also mentioning “it’s not quite there yet”
Because of the holiday season and waiting Manifold to respond about the recorded video I have yet to post on it anywhere. I'll be doing so in the next couple of weeks.
