Following the first season’s success of Shoot Your Shot, Bisola Aiyeola returns as cupid’s assistant to help admirers express their feelings to their intended partners. She began her love mission in this new season with 24-year-old Bright, who nurses a deep love for 22-year-old Ife.
Bright, a young model and student of Yaba Polytechnic, met Ife at a modelling gig and got shot by cupid’s bow at first sight. After nursing his feelings and sending flowers to hint to her about it for two months, Bright decided to outrightly confess his love with Bisola and the team’s help.
Like the first season of Shoot Your Shot, Bisola first chatted with our Romeo and learned that he was single and ready to start a new relationship. She also found out that the model planned on wooing his lady love with a romantic date filled with roses.
Following Bisola’s chat with Bright, we got introduced to beautiful Ife, a fashion designer, model, and aspiring actress. During the introduction, Ife disclosed her ‘situationship’ status, as she called it, but was open to starting something solid with a handsome, hardworking man ready to support her career goals.
After establishing both Bright and Ife’s relationship statuses, it was time for the date. It was indeed a romantic and colourful set-up with roses, balloons, dim lights, and pillows surrounding a low table, and Ife was undoubtedly impressed. After taking in the romantic scenery, Bisola brought Bright in, and Ife couldn’t believe her eyes – upon opening them. She had surprise written on her face and became more shocked when she clocked Bright’s chocolate and wine gift.
After settling down, Bright – the ever-sharp lover – didn’t waste any minute expressing his feelings for Ife. The first few minutes after his declaration was tense because she didn’t know whether to accept his proposal, her biggest fear being heartbreak. But Bright was able to assure her of his sincere feelings and allay her fears of heartbreak.
To cut the love story short, Ife answered with a yes, and Bright won the heart of his lady love. The smile on both lovers’ faces could light up a city. Such a happy ending!
It’s safe to say the first episode of Shoot Your Shot season 22 started on a ‘yes’ note but will the same be true in the next episode? Will Bisola have another success in her cupid’s mission? There’s only one way to find out.
