NEW YORK — A woman has used the Tinder dating app to prank more than 100 men into showing up for a date that turned out to be a “Hunger Games”-style competition.
The New York Times reports that the woman identified as Natasha Aponte invited dozens of Tinder s to meet her in Manhattan’s Union Square on Sunday for what they thought was a one-on-one date.
Instead, a woman who says she was Natasha told them they had to compete for a date with her.
She disqualified the men who were under 5-foot-10 (1.78 meters) and those named Jimmy, a name she dislikes. Then she asked the remaining contestants to perform pushups and footraces.
The stunt reportedly was videotaped by Rob Bliss, the man who shot a widely watched catcalling video in 2014.
