Synopsis by Hal Erickson
In this CBS reality series, the two best friends of 25-year-old bachelorette Lisa Shannon scoured the country to find the "perfect" mate for Lisa. The initial list of 100 eligible bachelors was cut down to ten during the first episode. In the weeks that followed, the home viewers were invited to vote on the men who seemed to be the best choices for our girl Lisa. If at the end of the series Lisa elected to marry the winner, or at least stay with him for a full year, the couple was given a one-million-dollar dowry. Simon Cowell, the acerbic talent judge of American Idol fame, served as the series' executive producer (but never appeared on camera, much to the disappointment of his fans). Cupid debuted on July 9, 2003.
