Viewers In Shock At How Contestants Are Eliminated On New Dating Show The Love Trap

Channel 4's latest dating show The Love Trap has left fans shook over how contestants are eliminated from the competition. See for yourself below:

The premise for the show starts off pretty simple - there are 12 women attempting to grab the attention of David Birtwistle, an eligible bachelor and personal trainer.

Half of the women appear to be genuine in their intentions, whereas the other six are already in relationships and are just on the show for the £20,000 prize money.

Birtwistle, 34, has to figure out who is real and who is fake.

Pretty standard stuff so far, however, the way the contestants exit the show has got everyone talking.

At the end of each episode, Birtwistle is given the choice of three women to eliminate from the show, which involves then standing on circular trap doors that, literally, open up and plunge the contestants into the floor.

A clip from the show has gone viral on social media and users can't quite get their heads around the elimination process.

"Truly could not have ever prepared myself," one user wrote.

Another added: "LOLLLLL. That was wild.

"They didn't have to do all of that. HAHA."

"This bout to be my new addiction," a third commented.

Someone else wrote: "If, like me, you don't normally click on clips from reality/dating shows, let me tell you that you absolutely should click on this one."

Finally, another user concluded: "I am sitting here with TEARS STREAMING."

Host Joel Dommett revealed that he would be 'absolutely livid' if he was one of the boyfriends of the women that was watching from home.

He said: "We didn't really think anything like a kiss, or even further was going to happen. My Lord, were we very wrong, they really went in.

"They must have had a conversation with their boyfriends at home and gone like, 'let's win this 20 grand, you've got to not be offended by this. I'm going to kiss him, I'm going to do this, I'm going to do that'.

"And fair play, they really did - because a lot of the time we were like, 'that person can't have a boyfriend because if I was that boyfriend, I would be absolutely livid right now'."
