Fake dating app Bantr appears in Bumble

Social dating app Bumble is hosting an event that is a nod to the fake dating app featured in Apple TV+ ‘Ted Lasso’.

The event is a promotional ad for the popular Apple TV+ series. It will serve as a game for Bumble users and will go live at 7pm local time from October 13 through the end of the year.

Bantr Live lets users automatically match with another ‘player’, with a match based on their gender preferences, age and location. However, only the profile name is displayed.

They then have a conversation in three minutes, and if both parties agree to match, then it will happen. As part of promoting the event, Bumble shared several tips on how to best “play” the game. New Apple TV+ subscribers can get Apple TV+ for free for two months once the event starts.
