Mercedes Young, 25, is jaded by today's dating scene. Her father told her that most men are unfaithful, so he taught her how to play the game so that she wouldn't get played. She believes 85% of men cheat, which makes it difficult for her to dive in head first on her quest for love, but her strong faith in God gives her faith that she will meet the right guy.
Hailing from a huge family in Miami, Florida, Mercedes has been living in Los Angeles for the past five years. She graduated cum laude from the University of Florida, where she majored in telecommunications with a specialization in management, a concentration in business, and a minor theatre. Currently, Mercedes is a successful entrepreneur, motivational speaker, and author of the children’s book, Look at All the Things My Hair Can Do.
