Out for the Count




“And so finally, Fair Maiden, on this week’s ‘Out for the Count’, you also turned down a date with Contestant C – Frank, the ‘Green Machine’, from Bolton. Poor Frank! You said he was a bit too square for your liking, as he spends much of his time hanging around in science labs. The Nerd!

You also thought he was a control freak, as he likes to take full charge for 24 hours. But there’s no sparking this guy to life now. He also needs to get himself a better doctor – those stitches are brutal, man!

Off you go Frank, see ya!

So, Lady, you turned down our three eligible bachelors, which means you Held out for the Count!

And here he is, the ‘Vein Man’, Count Drac himself!

You, lucky lady, will be swept off your feet and taken out for a bite by Big Drac. He’ll come back next time and tell us all about it. A wink from the Big Fella there – he’s got something tasty lined up, no doubt!

So, we’ll see you next week folks, on ‘Out for the Count’, when DRAAAAAAC’S Back!”

  1. I laughed my way through, it reminded me of the “Bachelor Number One, Do you eat your breakfast naked” questions from the Dating Game. I assume Blind Date is similar in format.
    I thought the Dating Game was a hoot — bring it back, I say.
    Loved your take on the prompt. Thanks for brightening my day.

  2. Hilarious, Steve. I honestly expect something like this to show up one day on reality TV. It becomes less real all the time. Drac is probably hungrily waiting at this very moment. Of course, I don’t know if it could top the present U.S. political show going on until November 8th. Good writing. 😀 — Suzanne
