Scope Out the Singles:
Kerry Cassidy - Seen walking red carpets from Manhattan hotspots to Hamptons' polo grounds, Kerry is a gal-about-town by night and an art consultant by day. Raised just north of New York City in Westchester County, Kerry's entrance into Manhattan's high life was seamless. When the spotlight became too bright, Kerry sought refuge in LA, studying Bikram yoga and focusing on her career. After summering back on the east coast, Kerry decided to stay in Nantucket through the winter. Kerry's city sabbatical is over and she is back on the town and better than ever. With her impeccable style and notable friends found in every swanky corner of the city, Kerry and her witty ways quickly turn heads everywhere she goes. Kerry aspires to have a marriage like her parents' one day, which has lasted a blissful 30 years. She's had no issues meeting men, but has yet to find a gentleman who can live up to her high expectations.
Lee Gause - Dr. Lee Gause rules the town's celeb dental scene with clients including models, rappers, and athletes. A native of North Carolina and graduate of UNC and Howard University, Lee comes from a long line of dentists, but has carved out his own niche with New York's best and flashiest. When not tending to his top-of-the-line clients, this avid art collector can be found at auctions bidding on works to enhance his private collection and raising money for his charity, which provides pro-bono dental work for underprivileged youth. After a five-year relationship with a beautiful, intelligent lawyer ended in heartbreak, he's vowed to keep it casual with the women he meets until he finds "the one." His gorgeous dream girl needs to be comfortable in all of his worlds, from galleries to courtside seats.
Joey Healy - Perfecting brows all over NYC is the name of the game for Connecticut native Joey. His careful hand and precise approach have put him on speed dial for his chic, trendsetting clients. Joey's well-curated brows have made him a media darling and gave him the exposure to bring his business to the next level with his own line of specialty tools, The Joey Healy Eyebrow Collection. Now that business is booming, Joey is ready to end his five-year single streak and meet the man of his dreams. He is looking for someone that can keep up with his busy schedule that often includes odd hours. Joey isn't ready to settle down if it means slowing down, but he does want a stable boyfriend who can support him and his career. He is looking for a guy who is exotic and successful, or as he puts it, "I'm looking for my Jay-Z since I'm clearly Beyoncé."
Tabasum Mir - Dr. Tabasum Mir has been ahead of the curve her whole life, beginning at age 12 when she enrolled in high school in Michigan. Her work in cosmetic dermatology has earned rave reviews and can be seen on the faces of New York's celebrities and socialites. After graduating from NYU and building her practice, she is excited to be expanding her own MirSkin skin care line and is quickly becoming a one-stop shop for all things beauty. She carries her passion for health into the charity world, offering her time, talents and funds to a host of philanthropic organizations including Operation Smile and Charity: Water. Tabasum's success and independence intimidates men who "need to be needed." Though she admits to having a slight addiction to dating male models, she finds them lacking in substance. She is looking for a man who is tall and has great bone structure with a Nordic look, but also has to be funny, sarcastic, secure, well read and prepared to settle down.
Ericka Pittman - Taking the city by storm with Brooklyn sensibilities and a worldwide outlook, Ericka has traveled the globe and rocketed through the ranks in the publishing industry with a myriad of popular magazines such as Vibe and Glamour. Ericka is currently VP at Sean "Diddy" Combs' company, The Blue Flame Agency, where she oversees brand development. This self-proclaimed "Brooklyn Barbie" juggles her fast-paced life with access to the hottest events from East Hampton to Lake Como. Having grown up in the tough area of East New York, Ericka has navigated a path to success amidst adversity and values giving back. She volunteers at the not-for-profit "Dress for Success" and mentors inner city youth. Ericka is currently in a solid relationship...with her blackberry. Ericka feels she has focused too much on the "work" part of the "work hard, play hard" equation and needs a guy who gives her balance and understands her jet-setting lifestyle. Ericka is comfortable being single, but even a city girl can be a hopeless romantic. The man of her dreams is kind, confident, patient, smart and witty.
Brian Trunzo - Brian Trunzo is a man who believes in reinvention and has transformed himself twice. First, he transitioned from a self-proclaimed "Staten Island Guido" in plush track suits and thick gold chains into a successful corporate lawyer. When Brian could no longer ignore his strong interest in fashion, he started a blog mocking menswear and eventually walked away from his lucrative legal life to open Carson Street Clothiers, a renowned menswear store in SoHo. Brian is attracted to confident women with edgy style who understand the rigors of running a business. He hopes to break the habit of falling for dramatic women who need to be "saved" and instead find a partner with whom he can travel the world.
