Eastern Michigan University students had a chance at making a love connection for Valentine’s Day on Monday, Feb. 4 in the Student Center Auditorium during EMU’s Bronze Beauties dating game.
As the Bronze Beauties prepared for its event, many students waited outside while the doors were closed. Attendees received a pink wristband upon entering the event.
The game consisted of five rounds where a pattern of different bachelors and bachelorettes had the opportunity to pick between three different contestants for a chance at love.
The ladies from the organization would ask a series of questions to give the bachelor and bachelorette an idea on who to choose as the winner, however, there was a catch. The bachelors and bachelorettes would be blindfolded and can only rely on the answers given from the contestants, giving each contestant a fair chance.
There was a brief intermission to allow everyone a chance to have a break, and DJ Kidd, the organization’s DJ, played music to keep everyone in the mood.
The order went back and forth from bachelor to bachelorette and three contestants for each pair with a slight change in round four. The organization allowed a woman in the audience to have a chance at love with three men already picked out as her contestants.
By the end of the last few questions, contestant number three abruptly left due to the fact that he had a girlfriend. This change in contestants caused for an opening where someone gladly filled in the place to only be picked as the winner in this round.
At the end of round four, Bronze Beauties allowed the audience and other organizations to make announcements such as upcoming events. There were many announcements to make, so the organization placed them on pause to continue the last round.
As the event ended, everyone who didn’t get to make their announcements had an opportunity to do so, and then Dj Kidd played it out.
“Being a contestant was fun,” Assante Currie, an EMU student, said. “I wish I had, like, a voice disguise because I know that whoever was going to be the bachelorette was going to know who I was. All in all, great event. I don’t really have anything bad to say about it. I felt like it went smoothly, and if they did have problems, no one outside of them knew about the problems” he added.
