'First Dates Hotel' Star Has Strange Question About Leaning Tower Of Pisa

'First Dates Hotel' Star Has Strange Question About Leaning Tower Of Pisa

You meet all kinds of characters on First Dates, the Channel 4 reality show that pairs up hopeful singletons looking for love - and that includes this woman, who confessed to believing this about the Leaning Tower of Pisa:

Louise Whittaker had checked into the dreamy Italian hotel that plays host to the show's jet-setting spin-off, First Dates Hotel, and was paired up with rugby player Ryan.

The pair met at the bar, perching on some stools as resident barman Merlin knocks up some drinks to get them started. Conversation soon gets onto Florence, the Tuscan city that's about an hour inland from the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Louise, from Newport in Wales, said: "I went to Florence for my friend's wedding."

Ryan replied: "I went years ago on a rugby tour."

He told her he'd visited Pisa as part of the trip, only to be met with a completely baffled expression from Louise.

Merlin then stepped in, added: "The Leaning Tower?"

"Is that actually real?" Louise asks. "This is going to sound daft: it's not a leaning tower of pizza - not real pizza?

Ryan, stunned, said: "Are you being serious?"

Unfortunately for him she was, but luckily he explained that it was in fact 'Pisa' as in the place, not 'pizza' like the delicious Italian food.

Merlin had managed to hold his tongue in the background, making himself busy mixing drinks, but that didn't stop viewers taking to social media to express the incredulity of it all.

Thankfully, her strange comments didn't seem to harm the blossoming romance too much, and the date only continued to improve.

Ryan even admitted he'd been admiring her chest over the dinner table - a remark that would normally be met with a slap in the face, but Louise just firmly told him: "My mum and dad are watching this!"

We've all said stupid stuff thanks to mid-date nerves, so it's good to see that even the daftest of comments don't have to get in the way of Cupid's arrow. Plus, a Leaning Tower of Pizza is a solid idea, to be fair.
