Episode 104 (Chicago & San Francisco) � Tomboy Allison from Chicago and single mom Soraya from San Francisco swap cities and dating pools, each looking for their Mr. Right, on this week�s episode of �Holidate,� airing WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 19 (10:00 � 11:00 p.m., ET/PT) on SOAPnet.
In the fourth episode, Allison, a media specialist from Chicago, swaps places with Soraya, a make-up artist from San Francisco. Tomboy Allison � who was raised by her Sicilian father and brothers�goes out with three different dates, including a chef, an electrician and a software engineer in and around the City by the Bay. Some of the dates include stopping by Jordan Vineyards and Winery in Sonoma, taking a ferry ride for a trip across the bay to Sausalito, and going to a private art gallery showing at the Minna Gallery. Will she find �a well-dressed, charming guy who is also athletic and enjoys doing the little things in life together?� Meanwhile, single mom Soraya searches for her perfect man � �someone dark and handsome who wears a suit, but can be spontaneous, chivalrous and a good dad to her son.� She goes out with a police officer, a portfolio manager and an insurance company executive while participating in an architectural tour of the Windy City, enjoying lunch at North Avenue Beach and attending a cooking class at The Chopping Block culinary school. Tune in to find out if either of the ladies finds her Mr. Right and invites him back to her hometown.
In every episode, two new women from different areas of the country venture out of their comfort zones and into a new part of the country to holidate in a city completely unlike the one they currently live in. Once they switch cities, each woman explores her new surroundings and embarks on a series of three dates in her new locale, handpicked by the other woman. While each of our women has dated many men in their own hometowns, imagine what could happen once they leave their old lives behind to become immersed in the sexiness of Santa Fe, the mystery of Miami or the non-stop nightlife in New York, all to look for Mr. Right. In the end, each girl will have the opportunity to meet up again with one of the guys she has met on her holidate and invite him to fly out and visit her in her hometown.
