It's funny because they're so uptight.
Blind date shows can have a certain appeal, whether it's the humor value or just that watching something so amazingly uncomfortable can make you feel better about your own life. But this one is a bit different, it's a prank set up by Ford to get unsuspecting guys into a car with a professional stunt driver. The guys think they're just going on a date, and the girl downplays her driving abilities at first, obviously.
We think a bit more stunt driving would have been cool, but there probably would have been liability issues. The girl is hot though, so that's a good thing.
