Now, a speed dating experiment scheduled for Wednesday (Feb. 7) plans to put that idea under the microscope.
The event is taking place at the Bruno Jemais Restaurant Club in New York and will introduce 40-or-so models to an identical number of moguls.
The idea is the brainchild of Jeremy Abelson, who runs Pocket Change, a high end newsletter. He says its natural for beautiful women to want financial security and rich guys to want hot chicks.
As he puts it, Women dont ask their friends, What does he do for a living? because theyre interested in a mans personality, and guys dont ask, Is she hot? because theyre concerned with character.
Abelson says handpicking the models and moguls beforehand takes out the guesswork for all involved.
But there are still some questions that need to be answered. A pair of gorgeous twin sisters are signed up and Abelson says they havent decided whether they or not they want to go out with just one guy.
