    Wiki description of Next (TV series, 2005-2008)
    At any point during the date – usually when things started to become boring, unpleasant, or the dater simply has an attribute the contestant did not like – the contestant could shout "Next!" to the dater and the dater was eliminated, receiving US$1 for every minute they lasted (rounded up).
    [....] The date ended when all dates had been nexted or when a dater was given the choice between the money or a second date.
    It was not uncommon for the contestant to next a dater at first sight.
    Guy makes plans with girl. Girl flakes. Guy considers girl untrustable and dumb (she can't even figure out how to work a planner). Guy nexts her. Girl thinks guy is a wuss for giving up so easy. Girl nexts him.
