It started as a lark...a call from a good buddy telling me he had met and given my name to someone involving millionaire guys, reality TV, and beautiful women. My first thoughts were, "nah, no way." I had never before been in front of a camera,* never desired to be, and in my business career I was comfortable always being the guy behind the scenes. I had seen firsthand several movies and TV shows being filmed at my house, however, and it certainly looked like fun, so I then began to think..."well, what the heck, it will be a great way to meet some beautiful women and something I could show my future kids someday."
Then, suddenly, here I was at the Hollywood Park Turf Club with 15 women, and they ALL wanted to know about ME -- who I was, what I like to do, and they all had that look in their eyes like I was the prince of the ball and they wanted to be my princesses!
I only wish I could have gone on dates with several of the women -- hey, who wouldn't?! It was so hard to choose, especially when I only got to spend about an hour with them all in a group setting. But, alas, life is full of tough choices, although in this case, I was a like a kid in a candy store, and so I went with my gut, and chose Sarah. It was definitely her gorgeous eyes that did it for me!
The date was great. I was definitely nervous at first, but after a little champagne on the yacht, it was all good. And even better was several weeks later, not with Sarah, but with a "runner up." But then, that's another story, for another day, and besides, I probably shouldn't kiss and tell! So, if you asked me what the experience was like, I wouldn't even have to say a word -- the smile is still on my face!
