At any point during the rounds, the women can press the button in front of them to turn off their light if they do not believe a date with this man would be constructive to their well-being and if this occurs, their area of the stage will turn red. If, at the end of three rounds, there are still lights left on, the bachelor will turn off all but two of the remaining lights himself. He will then have a chance to ask one question to the last two women, before choosing which woman he wants to go on the date with by turning off one more light.
If the man is left with two lights at the end of round 3, he will just ask his question to the two remaining women and if there is only one light left at the end of round 3, he will go on the date with that girl without asking her his question.
There are usually four men brought on in the course of a single episode, though on some occasions segments have been cut and only three men have been shown. Successful couples leave the programme upstairs on the opposite side of the studio to the 'Love Lift', and a song, usually from the latin pop genre, will be played.

In this round the man comes down the love lift. He meets the girls and then says his name and where he is from. Paddy repeats but afterwards with one of catchphrases. Then the girls can turn off their light. From series 7 onwards, they have to write down a 'love at first light' from the girls who had left their lights on. This includes a pre-recorded video presented by the man. It sometimes includes interviews with his friends and family. It describes his personality and what they do. At any point the girls can turn off their light.
In this round the man shows a skill in the studio. Alternately their friend or family can say a secret. At any point the girl can turn off their light. In this round the man turns off the lights of the remaining girls until just two are left lit. Alternatively, if there is only one or two girls left from round 3 then round 4 is skipped entirely.
In this round the man asks the girls who are remaining a question. The man then turns off the light of one girl. Paddy questions the chosen girl if they would rather know the man's 'love at first light' or not. Then they meet, go up the big stairs opposite the love lift and have a backstage interview.

In its early days, Take Me Out was reviewed negatively by critics. Shortly after the second series began in December , The Guardian ' s Tim Dowling said that, "When you strip away its tired, utterly false premise, all that remains of Take Me Out is a lot of flashing lights and some scripted innuendo delivered in a range of regional accents. However, after the beginning of the fifth series in January , Julia Raeside, also writing for The Guardian , admitted that the show had become "must-see TV" and was "a worthy successor to Blind Date ": " The little I'd seen of it put me off trying a whole episode But about a series ago, Take Me Out really started to grow on me.
One night, out of sheer laziness, I didn't bother to switch over — and now they've got me. I don't like nightclubs and I cover my upper arms at all times. But the women behind those podiums, however much I fail to identify with them for wanting to be on TV with their armpits constantly on show, make it gripping viewing.

Despite the fact Param himself took it light-heartedly, many Sikhs found this remark to be extremely offensive.

Param later went on to describe the backlash that he received from sections of the Sikh community. In , several of the contestants accused the show's producers of telling them whom to choose on each episode.

The bachelors have to make it through three rounds of mild to unbearable embarrassment, involving gleeful talking head trolling from loved ones and demonstrations of often entirely underwhelming "talents".
