Viewers were left unimpressed and confused by the latest episode of Date My Family.

In a bid to adhere to lockdown rules and social distancing, the show's producers debuted a new format where they play old episodes with commentary from a few comedians.

The new format really did not go down well with Mzansi.

Some viewers also had a problem with the fact that the comics made fun of contestants' appearance.

@premium_xh said, "And, next week, please edit out any shaming or mocking of people's physical appearance. It's not cool."

Peeps pointed out that the show, in its current state, was getting on black Twitter's last nerve and would soon fall.

Viewers are used to only ones who air their views on the contestants and their families.

Earlier this year, Briefly.co.za reported that a crew of beautiful ladies who accompanied their friend on the show had won Mzansi's heart.

Angie and her squad Natasha, Tanya and Kutlwano, were one of the hottest teams Date My Family has ever seen.

It was like we had stepped into the movie Mean Girls - everybody wanted to be friends with these huns, even if it was just on social media.
