* InnocentInnuendo: Occasionally or at least, they try to make it seem that way. One particular example comes from "Blind Date 2012" where a Buddhist contestent and their blind date kept talking about openning/showing/whatever the third eye.

* PrecisionFStrike: In the very first episode of the UK version, a contestant [[https://youtu.be/eZgREB5nwhs?t=34m49s can be heard cursing as he falls off the Sweeper]]. The editors and producers apparently didn't hear it, as it is completely uncensored.
