I like to play the devil's advocate sometimes, so if I see someone having a little bit of a tough time, then I am on their side or if Jimmy is especially hard with someone, then I might go after Jimmy a little bit.
These contributors are people who have come on, of their own free will, and they're super excited.

The show was hosted by Annie Wood (who also served as the show's co-producer) and produced by Ralph Edwards-Stu Billett Productions.
The show itself was a fast-paced variant of The Dating Game in which a bachelor and bachelorette competed against each other to win a date with a member of the opposite sex, as well as money. Behind a screen, which the bachelorette could not see through, were four different men, who introduced themselves to the bachelorette one at a time.
