Kate Plus 8 Preview: Kate Tries Dating, Wears a Bikini, Remains the Worst

by at .  Updated at .

While Jon Gosselin is no doubt being a shoulder for Michael Lohan to cry on, Kate Gosselin has some promoting to do for a new season of TLC's Kate Plus 8.

Divorce looks good on Kate, who hasn't lost her edge nor the need to control EVERY. SINGLE. THING.

We're treated to a sneak peek of Kate and her eight children - twins Maddy and Cara, and sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Colin, Leah and Joel - as they attempt to keep their Pennsylvania home in good shape, travel to Florida so that mom can wear a bikini, go antiquing for phones with cords (CAN YOU IMAGINE?!) and put their teamwork skills to the test in a panic room exercise.

"This show should be called 'Kate Plus Kate' because mommy does everything," one of the kids pointed out.

So wise, young human.

Viewers are in for a treat, because everyone's invited to watch Kate dip her toes in the dating pool.

The gentleman on Kate's blind date seemed nice enough, and he took her on a lovely helicopter ride over New York City.

Why, though, did the cameras have to hang around to see if they would kiss?

"Yeah...I don't know.  What is the proper end-of-date/goodnight...I don't know."

First dates are awkward enough for the two parties involved.  We're happy to hear a recap instead of having to watch the painful "are they going to kiss?" dance.

Kate Plus 8 premieres December 8th on TLC.
