BREAKING NEWS: Brand new Aussie GUINNESS WORLD RECORD attempt for biggest blind date


Love was most certainly in the air, Friday night on Sydney Harbour, as 712 singles opened their hearts and tried their luck with a match-made date at the Opera House, smashing the world record of Biggest Blind Date and looking to set a brand new Guinness World Record for Australia.

It’s not every day you get the chance to break a Guinness World Record, and find love at the same time – in fact, it’s more like a once-in-a-lifetime kind of thing.

But on Friday February 21st 2014, hundreds of lucky Sydneysiders did just that.

The event, held by innovative matchmaking site, and hosted by dating guru and radio princess Bianca Dye, saw 712 single Sydney-siders dressed to kill and swooning at the sight of one another as they packed out the gorgeous Northern Foyer of the Sydney Opera House for a night to remember.

“The Guinness World Record for the most couples to participate in a dating event was set on September 7th 2013, in Chicago Illinois, and it was 327 couples,” says Louise. “We had a record breaking 350 plus!”
