Man On First Dates Valentine's Special Tells Bizarre Lie About His Job

The Valentine's special of First Dates aired last night, and it did not disappoint.

The funniest moment of the episode had to be watching professional golfer Oscar, 20, tell his date, 24-year-old Hannah, he worked as a 'penguin picker-upper' - and it only got better when the pair clashed as we watched their date spiral out of control.

First of all, Hannah was lucky to be on the date with Oscar and not because he's a full-time golfer (did we mention) - but because he ticked quite a few of her million and one vital elements when it came to a potential partner.

Hannah, an events management graduate, reeled off an extensive list of things she looks for: tall, good teeth, muscly legs, good eyes, big hands, smart, nicely groomed, not bushy eyebrow, ears in not out.

She was presented with Oscar - and his alright-looking ears - and seemed pretty pleased with herself. Things were looking great.

Oscar, who stands at 6'6" tall (check), donned a three-piece suit (check) and explained that he doesn't like to bring up the golf bit - yeah right, we bet he's shouting it from the rooftops over a bottle of Grey Goose on a Saturday night.

Anyway, he claimed that instead he likes to say he works for London Zoo and off he went. You could tell he'd told this lie before as well. He was very thorough.

"If you go to the Antarctic enclosure, you've got the penguins and, it sounds ridiculous (you've said), but you would have seen on the news that Heathrow expanded so they've got more runways, so basically as the planes go up the penguins are looking at the planes.

"They then fall over as they watch them go over. I have to run in and basically pick them up. I'm a penguin picker-upper."

And Hannah unsuspectingly responded: "No way, I love a penguin. Can you take people to your job for a work experience day?" Oh dear...

The pair then sat down for their meal where Hannah told Oscar about her 'list'. Another criteria was her love of an Essex accent, to which he shot her down: "It's actually probably my least favourite [accent]."

In his behind the scenes interview, he added: "I'm not your stereotypical Essex boy. I do think girls especially in this day and age are obsessed with dating apps whereas I'm more old-fashioned and it would be nice to meet a girl who is similar in that way."

Hannah, who obviously had a dating app, decided to read out her bio. "If you're a legs man, I've got two. I like brunch, bottomless or topless."

Unimpressed Oscar thought it was 'a little bit cheesy', but Hannah said people had stopped her to tell her that her bio gave them a 'tickle'.

"They're desperate," Oscar shot back. "I'm just saying".

In the final bit - where both singles decide whether they're going to go out together again - Oscar said: "For me, I don't think romantically to be honest. It comes across as you're quite self-indulged, but it just comes across in terms of you've got your list of boys with exactly what you'd like, your bio and things like that and I just thought that's not really my scene."

Hannah added: "I just thought it was really nice that you have like a nice job, money on the side, it's not pretentious. I love the penguins." Oh Hannah...

Oscar gave everything away with the smile on his face to which Hannah gasped "Oh my God, it's a lie." He replied: "I don't pick up penguins no. I feel really bad." Hannah explained how she felt really upset - probably not the reaction he was going for.

As Hannah was getting into the taxi following the 'date', Oscar asked 'do I get a kiss goodbye', she initially started to lean in before changing her mind.

I think we would call that a pie to the face.
