Last night on Kate Plus 8 Season 4 Episode 7, the matriarch went on a blind date for the first time in forever, and a fancy one to boot.
That's right, if you watch Kate Plus 8 online above, you will witness Kate Gosselin getting wined and dined like there's no tomorrow.
By a man! Who is into her!
No, not Steve Neild!
Or Jeff Prescott!
"I've gone on less than a handful of dates in history since I’ve been divorced,” the 40-year-old said, teasing the night's big storyline.
This blind date was orchestrated by her friend Deanna; Vann, from New York City, runs and was on a submarine in the U.S. Navy.
Sounds like a good catch, sure, but "the only reason I’m agreeing to it is that he’s a friend of Deanna's," said a clearly nervous Kate.
"I think it’s good for her to put herself out there and find a husband, so she doesn’t die alone," said Mady, dutifully helping her prepare.
The kids all agreed they would be alright with Kate getting married again, though we're guessing Jon Gosselin may have other thoughts.
In any case, Kate met Vann, then got into a helicopter he chartered. Like watching a real life episode of The Bachelorette up in here.
The actual dinner date went well, even as conversation turned to marriage and whether Vann could hypothetically handle eight kids.
Might as well cut to the chase, right?
They agreed to see each other again, took a selfie to send to Deanna, then parted ways awkwardly with no PDA. On camera at least.
“I have kids who are going to be watching. There can’t be any good-night kisses here! Cameras or no cameras, I don’t know what the rules are."
"I’m not good at this dating stuff.”
Hey, gotta start somewhere.
