About This Project
In February 2009, I played host for Diet Dr. Pepper’s speed-dating event titled “Love at First Sip.” Yahoo! presented the event, and this was the second Valentine’s Day event I hosted for the pairing of Yahoo! and Diet Dr. Pepper. (Visit my “Valentine’s in Vegas” page for video from my first event with the pairing!)
This was a fun 3-city speed-dating event held in NYC, Philadelphia, and Chicago around Valentine’s Day. In each city, couples who mutually voted they liked each other were voted on after an interview by me, and the winning couple went on to compete with the winners in the other cities for a chance to win a trip to Paris for their “first date.”
I was a host of the dating events and the promos they shot. We shot at Dave & Buster’s in each city, and as you can tell from the first video, it was pretty hot. I was moving around a lot, yelling, and guiding the people (who were having a lot of fun) through the speed-dating.
There are 6 short videos. For each city, there is a general video of the event plus a video of the winning couple. In the end, the Chicago couple won! I was allowed to vote for couples online after the speed-dating event was over. As a result, I ended up winning a year’s supply of Dr. Pepper. Ha!
