Who is Austin Ventour?
Austin is most known for his role on Channel 4’s First Dates, where he works serving guests.
Not only does the cheery waiter help make the singletons feel at home, he has also won over the viewers at home.
The actor, from Greenwich, London, has finally earned his time in the spotlight after working as an extra for a number of years.

As well as enjoying improvisation work, Austin is also an accomplished hip-hop dancer.
The 6ft heart-throb has also dabbled in a few modelling jobs in his time, although he prefers to focus his attention on acting
Is Austin Ventour actually a waiter?
So happy to be back with the #firstdates family! @cici_coleman_ @loupdiloup and can't wait to see @lauratott__ on Friday! #filming #squad #bts
Contrary to popular belief, Austin doesn’t actually work in the First Dates restaurant full time.
Despite this, the actor does actually have experience in the hospitality industry.
From 2012-2013, he worked as a bartender at dance club The Coronet, in London.
He has also worked as a part of the waiting staff team at Jamie’s Italian and The Breakfast Club.
Is Austin Ventour single?
Had the best time with @katiemooremua at #lakedistrict its most certainly the most beautiful place in England and it's not the last beautiful place I'm going to visit. #picoftheday #country #potd
Unlike some of his First Dates co-stars, Austin is in a happy relationship.
He is currently dating makeup artist Katie Moore and the pair both enjoyed a romantic trip to the Lake District earlier this year.
Fans have been urging co-stars CiCi Coleman and Sam Conrad to get together after spotting their chemistry on the show.
Despite Sam offering his co-star an adorable Love Actually-inspired gesture at Christmas, it looks like the pair have remained apart.
When is First Dates on TV?
First Dates airs on Monday evenings at 10pm on Channel 4.
This is the ninth series of the popular dating show.
Tonight’s episode goes head-to-head with the news on BBC One and ITV and W1A on BBC Two.
