Check out the shocking results of a social experiment featuring a girl with a fat suit and her Tinder dates!
The guys from Simple Pickup – a YouTube channel devoted to social experiments, dating tips, answering attractiveness-related questions and so on – decided to do a unique social experiment. They dressed up a girl named Sara in a fat suit and made her go on several Tinder dates just to see the men’s reactions when they discover that she looks nothing like the slim girl from the pictures on her profile.
Surprisingly enough, all of the dates bail on her as soon as they realize what she looks like. As Sara starts explaining that the photos are six months old and that she’s convinced it’s the inside that counts, the guys just start making excuses. One of them said he was going to go to the bathroom and he never came back. Another one said he was actually married and bailed. A third Tinder date straight-forwardly stated that wasn’t going to date a fat woman regardless of her good qualities as a human being. Only one man stayed on the date long enough for the girl to reveal that she’s actually wearing a fat suit and that everything is simply a social experiment.
The people standing behind the experiment stated that when it comes to online dating the worst fear for women is to meet a serial killer, while the worst fear for men is to meet a fat woman. The experiment proved this theory. Simple Pickup’s video, which is just over 4 minutes long, was uploaded on YouTube on the 24th of September 2014. It already has more than 20,280,000 views. The team also made a male version of the video, in which a man is dressed in a fat suit and is meeting up with Tinder users.
