What do you do when you’re new to a city and newly single? You give yourself up to crowd sourcing, of course. Or at least that’s what one eligible bachelor who is new to New York City has decided to do. Meet Brian. He is on the hunt to go on 30 dates in 30 days with your help.
Brian seems pretty savvy in social media. He has the “Big Four” media covered: a webpage, a Twitter account, a Facebook fan page and a Youtube account. With all his bases loaded, Brian’s dating life is bound to be busy this upcoming month.
In a culture where we love to scrutinize others’ lives and where “reality” entertainment is king, Brian seems to be bound for viral stardom. I must admit, I’ve already followed him on Twitter, subscribed to his Youtube page and amcurrently debating which one of my NYC friends I can convince to go on a date with him.
Brian’s plan is genius. He combines two of Americans’ favorite types of entertainment: dating shows and shows where the viewers call the shots. Take the popularity of shows such as The Bachelor, American Idol, Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance, for example. Hopefully, since the viewers get to choose the girls for Brian, we won’t have another Vienna scandal on our hands.
Plus, how can you not want to watch a shy guy make awkward phone calls asking girls he met online on dates?
So what’s your bet? Will Brian be able to go on 30 dates in 30 days?
