John Okafor Ready To Mingle
John Okafor was one of the 12 contestants over Ready To Mingle trying to win the heart of the single lady, and bag home the stunning cash prize. But it’s not as easy as it sounds. Amongst the singletons, were also boys who were already in a relationship and lied about their single status in the hopes of winning the competition.
Moreover, the men who were in a relationship were also secretly helped by their real-life partners.
The competitors were put through a series of challenges, tasks, and games, where the lady got to know them better and eliminated them one by one until there was only one remaining.
Joining John this season were Chris Baber, Lewis Crocker, Toby Bougouneau, Drew Wedlake, Hakeem Tru, Louis Hart, Elliot Miles, Casey Sonnekus, and Rudi Senghore.
As for this inaugural season host, there couldn’t have been anyone better than the Canadian comedian Katherine Ryan. According to her, the show was like “nothing we’ve seen before but still with all the drama and dating dilemmas we love to see.”
Although Ready To Mingle’s premiere date was not revealed, their filming location was known to be in Torquay, Devon at a luxury clifftop apartment.
