‘Don’t you know who I am?’ The awkward moment Richard Reid’s dinner date fails to recognise him on reality show First Dates
Entertainment reporter Richard Reid was stunned when his handsome date failed to recognise him on Channel 7’s First Dates.
On Wednesday, the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! 2018 winner, 55, enjoyed dinner with 37-year-old Jonathan at Sydney restaurant Bouche on Bridge.
During the date Jonathan asked Richard what he did for work, to which he responded: ‘I go back and forth between Los Angeles and here… I do some TV presenting.’
‘It was refreshing, but at the same time… very awkward’: Gossip guru Richard Reid was left stunned after his date fails to recognise him on Wednesday’s episode of First Dates
The Rockhampton-native surprised him when he said: ‘I don’t really watch TV.’
A stunned Richard said in a piece-to- camera: ‘It was refreshing, but at the same time, when someone is supposed to know who I am, and they don’t know who I am – It was awkward, it was very awkward.’
A few moments later he excused himself to go to the bathroom where he called a friend to update him on the date.

The celebrity gossip guru gave his pal a glowing review of Jonathan calling him cute, and said he was shocked his date did not know who he was.
His friend said: ‘So he think you’re just some random American?’
Richard joked: ‘Some old queen he’s been set up with on a date!’
‘I had to Google him!’ While the celebrity singleton was briefly away, a waitress named Izzy checked in on Jonathan (pictured) who was still clueless to Richard. She was the one who explained that his date was a celebrity correspondent and the 2019 winner of I’m A Celebrity
While the celebrity singleton was briefly away, a waitress named Izzy checked in on Jonathan, who was still clueless to Richard’s work.
Fortunately she explained his date was a celebrity correspondent and the 2019 winner of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!
‘I feel like an idiot!’ he laughed, before adding that he had to ‘Google him’
The date for the pair ended well, and both men agreed to go on a second date, even sharing a quick kiss to seal the deal.
Winner, winner: Aside from being a celebrity correspondent for Studio 10, and for Channel Nine’s Today show in the past, Richard also won I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! in 2019 (pictured with Yvie Jones and Shane Crawford)
