On a first date, should the guy or the girl foot the bill? This is a question that couples have been debating over for years and a particular episode of the new TV Show First Dates New Zealand has sparked up this debate amongst viewers.

In this unique dating show, the couples, who are complete strangers share a meal as discreet cameras are placed throughout the special First Dates restaurant record every detail of the date from start to finish.

In the episode mentioned above, a female deliberately didn’t bring her wallet as she expected her male date to pay for their evening out. This wasn’t well received by her date as he thought it was “sexist.”
