Good Morning Britain viewers slam woman who makes men do IQ tests before dates

By John Gillespie & James Rodger & John Gillespie

The popular ITV show Good Morning Britain grilled a woman today after it was discovered she makes the men dating her take an IQ test - and they need to score very highly.

According to Birmingham Live, Candice Kloss appeared for an interview with Susanna Reid and Richard Madeley today (May 11) via video call.

She said: "I try to make it fun, like one of my guy friends makes his dates take a personality test, which is kind of fun, like are you introvert or extrovert? So I try and pass it off like that."

Susanna asked: "It is a requirement before he turns up?"

Candice replied: "I try to pass it off as tests are fun, don't you want to take this?"

Susanna then asked: "And if he fails it? What if the IQ test result is too low? Would you say to them 'oh, no, sorry, that score isn't high enough - the date is off'. I mean, you say two guys have taken it so far? How did they get on? Did they pass?"

Candice nodded and said: "Yeah, it hasn't happened yet. They both passed. I mean, I think you can sort of tell when you meet somebody."

On Twitter, fans were left critical. "Also a higher IQ doesn't make people kind or nice people. I would take that any day over a test x," one GMB viewer wrote.

Another said: "You can't judge someone on their IQ. Try loyalty, commitment, faithfulness, trustworthy and someone who stands by your side in good or bad times. That's when you have found a needle in a haystack."

And yet another said: "You would think she would have the intelligence to assess someone on a date without the need for metrics."
