During the casting process for the series, VH1 asked for single men with a net worth of over ,000,000.
Hauserman also stated that she was looking for "a mature guy that can handle me and doesn't cry" and stated "He doesn't have to be rich; he has to be stable." Hauserman said she would take the show seriously, it would be "very real".
