Sweet Pensioner Falls Asleep During Appearance On Spanish Dating Show

As we’ve seen in recent weeks, live TV doesn’t always go to plan, and in this tale of lovely old lady, Eloisa, it couldn’t get much worse. The pensioner appeared on an episode of Spanish dating show, ‘La tarde aquí y ahora’, looking for a companion to grow old with.

Unfortunately, Eloisa’s nerves had been getting the better of her, so in order to get a good night’s rest, the pensioner popped a couple of sleeping pills, which didn’t seem to wear off in time for her television debut.

Per the Daily Mail, Eloisa fell into a deep slumber while presenter Juan y Medio talked to another guest, prompting the host to play a practical joke on the poor woman.

He continued the program, encouraging the audience to laugh quietly and avoid clapping so as to let her sleep, before having the lights turned off, leaving both the audience and sleeping Eloisa in a dark studio.

“This happens more often that you think because people don’t sleep the night before and then eat something,” the host explained.

“We don’t know if we’re witnessing a tragic death live on TV or whether Eloisa has fallen asleep.”

Juan y Medio then brought in an assistant to wake Eloisa by gently shaking her shoulder, with confused Eloisa shouting, “Who is it, who is it?” before confessing to taking the sleeping pills to help calm her nerves and get a decent sleep.

The host then appeared, telling her that her siesta had been seen by millions of viewers before adding, “Your daughter’s just phoned me. You’ve been sleeping since yesterday” and lying that the studio audience was a different one to that invited to watch the show she’d been on.

The sequence of events occured on a show on the Canal Sur network, which brings in people from all over southern Spain who are looking for love, including Eloisa, who came from the south east province of Almeria.

The footage has been viewed almost three million times already. We just hope she found love after all that.
