CBS REVEALS THE IDENTITIES OF THE CONTESTANTS SEARCHING FOR TRUE LOVE ON THE NEW ONLINE REALITY SHOW "HOOK ME UP," ON CBS'S BROADBAND CHANNEL INNERTUBE

Sarah Kruger ("The New Adventures of Old Christine") To Host the Show, Which Premieres On Innertube Oct. 2

Viewers To Vote On Who The Contestants Will Date Each Week

Men and Women Interested In Dating One of the Four Contestants Can Apply at CBS.com

HOOK ME UP, a new online reality series that follows four singles as they brave the world of online dating as America votes each week until the contestants find their perfect match, premieres on CBS's broadband channel innertube on Monday, Oct. 2. Actress Sarah Kruger, star of "The New Adventures Of Old Christine" on the Network, will host the web-only series. New episodes will post every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

HOOK ME UP chronicles a series of dates that the contestants go on as they are courted by four suitors, each vying for the contestants' affections. Potential suitors will post their profiles publicly on CBS.com, so America can get to know them better. Men and women interested in dating one of our four contestants can apply online at CBS.com starting Sept. 12. To apply, potential suitors can fill out the application and attach video, pictures and any interesting information that will help prove they are the perfect match. Producers will then choose the best of the best to court the four contestants.

In each five-minute episode of HOOK ME UP, one of the contestants goes out on a date with his or her four suitors. Following that episode, viewers decide which suitors come back for another date, as the pool is whittled down from four to one. As the dating experience of each contestant comes to an end, another one will start on their quest for love. In another twist, unbeknownst to both the viewers and the contestants, each suitor has a "secret" that will be revealed at the end of each dating cycle.

Following are the four contestants:
