Date Rush, TV3's love and relationship programme, has been trending on social media since its last episode on Sunday, May 3, 2020.
This follows an interesting thing that happened as one of the male participants, Ignatius, came up on stage and turned down interests from beautiful ladies.
As the game goes, a man comes up on stage and 10 female participants will show their interest in him by turning their rush (light) on.
When a guy gets more than one rush, he goes through a process to select the one he would want to go on a date with. Rarely does a guy get more than two rushes on.
On Sunday's edition, the fine-looking Ignatius swept almost everybody off their feet getting seven women, including Freelove who is known to rarely turn her rush on, drooling and wanting him.
But in unprecedented fashion, Ignatius refused to take any of the girls as he turned off all of their rushes.
This raised eyebrows with Freelove even getting angry at Ignatius for disrespecting her and the other colleagues who had shown interest in him.
In a new video, Ignatius has defended his actions and explained why he took such a decision, especially in the case of Freelove.
According to him, he took the decision not because of the programme alone but what was going to happen in real life.
For him, Freelove was only fantasizing about him being the kind of man that she wants but was going to give him stress in real life.
"I felt Freelove was hallucinating. She felt this guy is the kind of man that I want. But I don't look just here, I look beyond. And when it gets beyond, I don't like tantrums and that kind of stress because I'm already stressed. My foundation is already stressing me out. I have a lot to do so if she brings her stress up it's going to be a blast... I can't come and 'keel' myself." he said.
Meanwhile, Ignatius has been accused of having a girlfriend whom he is preparing to get married to.
Several photos available to YEN.com.gh suggested Ignatius was ready to get married on April 19, 2020, but was postponed because of the coronavirus.
