The objective of the show was for a single man to obtain a date with one of thirty single women. The women stood on a stage underneath thirty white lights, each with a button in front of them. A single man was then brought down on stage via the ‘Love Lift’ and tried to persuade the women to agree to be his date in a series of rounds, playing a prerecorded video discussing his background, displaying a skill such as dancing or playing a musical instrument , or playing another video in which the man’s friends or family reveal more about his virtues and philosophy.
