Dzato and Grace won the ultimate prize in the maiden edition of Date Rush Viewers Choice Awards held on July 4 having been voted the best couple of the season. TV3’s data-matching reality show in its seasons four and five has for the past six months creating a platform for people desirous of finding their better halves to take advantage of the opportunity. Many came, some found partners, others found friends, and some others found soul mates. Others found nothing.
For Dzato and Grace, they say, they found love in each other. “I came on Date Rush to find love. Thank you TV3 for making me meet the love of my love”, Dzato declared as he takes the award for the best couple of seasons.
His ‘soulmate’, Grace said her success story is a testament to the genuine intentions of the show which is for people to find love.
“I want you all to use me as a testimony. People say Date Rush is scripted. Use me as a testimony. I came here purposely to find love and here I am. I found love. Thank you, Ghana. Thank you world for voting for me”, she said.
The ‘unconventional’ proposal
The couple caught the attention of Date Rush fans and the public when Ellen challenged the status quo and proposed love to Dzato on live National Television. Since then, the couple has been seen together in cozy and romantic moments and with images surfacing online. For some lovers and would-be lovers, the couple has been an inspiration. It thus came as no surprise to them that the couple was voted to win the ultimate ahead of others like Ali and Shamima, Success and Famous, Sandra and Bebelino, Alberta and Process, among others.
