ON SOAPNET'S ORIGINAL REALITY SERIES, "HOLIDATE,"
AIRING WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 26 AT 10 PM ET/PT
Episode 105 (Dallas & New York/Hoboken, NJ) � Independent Cindy from Dallas and family-orientated Alex from Hoboken, New Jersey swap cities and dating pools, each looking for their Mr. Right, on this week's episode of "Holidate," airing WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 26 (10:00 � 11:00 p.m., ET/PT) on SOAPnet.
In the fifth episode, Cindy, who is a product implementation manager and was previously married, goes out with three different men � including a security analyst, stand-up comedian and commercial textile sales representative � in and around The Big Apple. Some of the dates include a romantic gondola ride and picnic in Central Park, dining on steak at a trendy restaurant in the Meat Packing district and sailing around Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. Will she find romance on the Island of Manhattan? Meanwhile in The Big D, Alex, a corporate trainer who puts family first, searches for her perfect man and dates a development executive, a finance sales director and a physician who specializes in sleep disorders. They hang out at Billy Bob's, visit the Texas Rangers ballpark and enjoy a meal prepared by celebrity chef Kent Rathbun ("Iron Chef America" winner). 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.
