TEN HOPEFUL ROMANTICS AND ONE MYSTERY GENTLEMAN HAVE A CHANCE TO FIND LOVE, ON THE SERIES PREMIERE OF ABC'S 'THE PROPOSAL,' MONDAY, JUNE 18

From the Creator of 'The Bachelor' Franchise and Hosted by Jesse Palmer

"Episode 101" - Ten eligible women selected by a blue-ribbon panel of matchmakers vie for a chance at love with mystery suitor Mike, a police officer from Bakersfield, California, in search of his soul mate. By the end of the night, Mike will propose to one of two remaining women. Then, the newly acquainted couple will trust fate and exit the stage possibly engaged to be married, on the series premiere of "The Proposal," MONDAY, JUNE 18 (10:01-11:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand.

Hosted by former NFL quarterback and Season 5 Bachelor Jesse Palmer, each episode will feature 10 eligible daters competing in four pageant-style rounds to win the heart of a mystery man or woman whose identity is concealed from them. The male or female daters will attempt to woo the mystery suitor with their words in a first impressions round; bare their souls in a beachwear round; answer the mystery suitor's most pressing romantic questions; and strive to receive a seal of approval from the mystery suitor's most trusted family member in the final round.

After each phase, the daters who fail to connect with the mystery suitor are whittled down, leading to the dramatic and highly anticipated reveal, when the two remaining daters finally meet the mystery suitor for the first time, just in time for a romantic proposal.

"The Proposal" is produced by Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Unscripted & Alternative Television. Mike Fleiss, Martin Hilton, James Breen and Jason Ehrlich serve as executive producers.
