In fact, it's what has made him and his mother Joann Ward one of the most successful matchmaking teams in the country. While in Miami, Steve will work with a group of eight single, attractive women, all composed of classic female archetypes including the "too much too soon" romantic, the "gold digger" and the late 30's "work obsessed." They will be living together in a house for 10 weeks and given a chance to learn Dating 101. From ex-boyfriends to intimacy to communication, these ladies will face challenges that force them outside of their comfort zone. We'll see our love-lorn ladies put to the test - but will they be able to take the heat?
