Following last night’s epic episode of First Dates Ireland, RTÉ Player caught up with The Viper to get his reaction on Mark and Gemma’s date.
From Mark’s karate skills to his sense of dress, The Viper doesn’t hold back as he delivers the ultimate armchair critique. When the issue of who pays for dinner crops up, The Viper has some choice words on this “feminism thing” saying; “Equality is a minefield. Why can’t things just be simple and sexist, the way they always were. Sexist, but simple…a simpler age… an easier time.”
