TV Land Reveals the 20 Young Suitors Vying for the Heart of 'The Cougar'

40-Year-Old Successful and Bewitching Stacey Anderson Searches for Love on Eight-Part Reality Series Premiering April 15, 2009 in TV Land PRIME Hosted by Vivica A. Fox

LOS ANGELES, April 13 -- TV Land today revealed the 20 handsome and charming young men - all in their 20s - competing to find love on TV Land PRIME's new reality series "The Cougar" which premieres on Wednesday, April 15, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. This eight-part elimination dating competition features Stacey Anderson as "the cougar," a stunning 40-year-old successful realtor from Scottsdale, Arizona, who puts potential lovers to the test through a series of creative and romantic challenges. "The Cougar" is hosted by film and television actress Vivica A. Fox and is executive produced by Mike Fleiss's Next Entertainment ("The Bachelor") in association with Warner Horizon Television.

From a police officer to a snowboard instructor to a pair of 25-year-old twins, all of these young guys have one thing in common - they are looking to find love with a smart and seductive OLDER woman. These guys want a woman who is more experienced and knows what she wants. And when these young guys meet her, they will stop at nothing to win her heart. While it might be the first time some of them are exploring a relationship with an older woman, they are ready to vie for her love and attention.

For her part, TV Land's "cougar," Stacey Anderson, prefers dating younger men. For years, Stacey has believed that society has placed a double standard on women who date younger men, and she is here to prove that age is nothing but a number. Stacey's dating experiences have led her to believe that men her age and older live under the pressure of a "ticking clock," which dampens their spontaneity. This zest for life is a demeanor Stacey finds crucial for her future love interest to possess, and she plans to find it with one of the young guys she meets on "The Cougar."

Meet the 20 Competitors on "The Cougar":

Adam, 25

Handsome and arrogant self-described "man of mystery" who is competing with his twin brother for the heart of the "cougar."

David, 25
