In an exclusive sneak peek at Tuesday's Kate Plus 8, Gosselin goes on a blind date, but she isn't shy about telling him exactly what she demands in a suitor.
"I do know that the person that comes around and sticks around – like if you are willing to take on eight kids, you have to be pretty darn tough, like, from the get-go," the 40-year-old mom of twins and sextuplets tells her date over dinner.
"I think that in itself will be the ready-made test."

"Since being divorced, I can't even really say I'm in the world of dating because I don't get it," Gosselin says in an exclusive sneak peek clip at the TLC hit's upcoming premiere.
But that didn't stop the success of her very first blind date.

On last week's Kate Plus 8, Kate Gosselin marked her big 4-0, now she's turning her attention toward the sextuplets as they celebrate their 11th birthday. (Yes, you read that right: Alexis, Aaden, Leah, Colin, Hannah and Joel are 11 – and we're all very, very old.)
In an exclusive sneak peek at Tuesday's episode Kate says one of the benefits of age is that she doesn't sweat the small stuff anymore: "I am relaxing, chilling out. And I can tell that about myself. I kind of laugh at myself," she says.
"Things that used to really send me over the edge, now I'm just like, 'Hey, whatever.' I just can't be spending my energy on the meltdown of the century every time something little happens."

"I want people to stop asking me if I'm dating," the Kate Plus 8 star says decisively. "I would like that to end."
Five years after a painful and very public divorce, Kate says the dating question offends her most because it's "a reminder that here I am, it's just me."

Kate Gosselin hasn't finished up her run on TLC just yet.
The cable network has ordered more installments of Kate Plus 8 to air in December.
TLC says the cameras will follow Gosselin and her brood as they travel to Boston and explore the New England area as part of their family vacation.
Viewers will also be treated to the Gosselin kids' final days of summer as their mom prepares for another year of school. Cara and Mady will enter eighth grade, while the sextuplets – Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah and Joel – will go into the fourth grade.

Raising eight children can be a circus – a comparison Kate Gosselin took to heart to celebrate her sextuplets' birthday.
Dressed as a clown for her kids' big day, Gosselin threw a carnival-themed bash for the youngest in her very busy brood: Aaden, Collin, Joel, Leah, Alexis and Hannah. The sextuplets turned 10 years old on May 10, and TLC captured all the fun for the family's two-part return to reality TV.

Kate Gosselin and her brood return for a two-hour Kate Plus 8 special next month on TLC. And judging by this exclusive preview, family life is just as hectic for the reality mom – though her tactics have become perhaps a little more devious.
"It's all still happening, with or without cameras," she says. "I'm getting older, tireder, more worn out. The kids are getting older and smarter and giving me a run for my money, daily and hourly and moment by moment."
Two and a half years after the show went off the air, twin girls Cara and Mady are now 13, and the sextuplets – daughters Leah, Alexis and Hannah, and sons Aaden, Collin and Joel – just turned 10 on May 10.
