Media General have over the years captivated Ghanaian television viewers with their reality shows including Date Rush and with the upcoming Perfect Match Xtra scheduled to air on Sunday, May 21, 2023, it promises to make waves and take the nation by storm.

While both shows, produced by Adesa Productions, revolve around the quest for love and the challenges of finding the perfect partner, they have distinct differences that set them apart.

Format and Selection Process

Date Rush follows a unique format where a single person is presented with potential partners behind a podium with a live audience.

The single person chooses a partner based on appearance and a brief introduction.

This part of the show is particularly exciting, as viewers never know what to expect, and the single person’s decision can often be surprising.

On the other hand, Perfect Match Xtra features five women and five men who compete for nine weeks, employing various tactics and strategies to win over their ideal match.

The final couple standing in Perfect Match Xtra wins the show.



Schedule and Activities

Perfect Match Xtra has a structured schedule, including daily aerobics sessions, nomination and diary sessions, various tasks, and grooming sessions.

Date Rush focuses more on the interactions between the single person and potential partners as well as the subsequent interactions between the couple.

Audience Influence

In Perfect Match Xtra, the viewing audience has the power to influence the outcome through voting.

They can vote to keep their favourite couple in the reality house.

In Date Rush, the selection process is solely determined by a single person without direct audience involvement.
