SIX LADIES LEAVE THE LAST FRONTIER FOR SUN-SOAKED MIAMI IN TLC'S NEW SERIES "ALASKAN WOMEN LOOKING FOR LOVE"

-- Six-Part Series Premieres Sunday, October 6 --

(Los Angeles, Ca.) - This fall, six native Alaskan women tempt fate to find true love in TLC's new series ALASKAN WOMEN LOOKING FOR LOVE. As these ladies say, when it comes to dating on the island of Kodiak, Alaska, "the odds are good, but the goods can be a little odd." Faced with men consumed by fishing and hunting, often sporting long hair and scruffy beards, these women are fed up with their options. Ready to exchange their rugged boots for high heels and fancy dates, these ladies leave the safety and security of their homes and journey 5,000 miles to the Sunshine State, in search of adventure and their perfect match. ALASKAN WOMEN LOOKING FOR LOVE premieres on Sunday, October 6that 10 PM (ET/PT).

In this six-part series, viewers will follow these friends as they make a splash in sexy, sun-soaked - and culturally-opposite - Miami Beach, where they hope love awaits. Determined, the women get jobs, scour the beaches and risk everything to fit in and find suitors - but they quickly discover that they are fish out of water. From firefighters and football players to personal trainers and cops, will they have success meeting the man of their dreams? Or is Miami Beach too big for them to handle? And if they do find love, can their new guys manage the rough and tough Alaskan lifestyle or will finding their Prince Charming only be a fairytale?

Meet TLC's ALASKAN WOMEN LOOKING FOR LOVE:

Tina, 32

Kodiak native Tina approaches men like she approaches her welding job, head-on with a lot of heat. Tina is the girl who will stop at nothing to find her Mr. Right. She says of Friday nights in Kodiak: "I don't know why we go out...What if something cool happens? Nothing cool is going to happen." Not afraid to flaunt her feminine wild side, she left the frozen garages of Alaska to test the waters in sizzling Miami and see if true love is really possible. Tina's a girl who knows what she wants and it becomes clear that she also knows how to get it.

Jenny, 34

Most of Jenny's 34 years of life were devoted to her marriage and raising her children. Single again, and living it up on the beaches of Miami, Jenny has been freed from the closed off wilderness of her Alaskan hometown, and is able to finally spread her wings and explore the dating life that she never had in Alaska. "I want something different," Jenny says. "I want to be able to dress up and look nice and actually wear stuff besides long socks and long johns." But while she admires the luxury and sexiness of the South Beach scene, Jenny's heart is not so easily stolen, and ultimately, she'll be forced to decide if home is really where her heart is.

Sabina, 28

Sabina is a romantic at heart. Looking for a good man, she says, "I just wanna be whatever you call that off your feet... Swooned? SWEPT! That's it. I wanna be swept off my feet!" Tired of trying to connect with fisherman and bear hunters who are never around for long, Sabina comes to Miami yearning for a real relationship - and she won't let anything stand in her way. She's free-spirited and fun, which makes her an easy favorite among the men who frequent the competitive Miami dating scene.

Heather, 29

We all bring baggage into relationships, and initially Heather fears that her baggage - being a single mom - makes her undesirable. How can a real girl compete with the skinny, tanned, surgery-enhanced women of Miami? Heather sees her insecurity as a hurdle to overcome and she tries to adapt to the Miami dating lifestyle full force, while at the same time still managing to be a supportive mother to her son, Darien, while she's so far from home. "I'm tired of being afraid of relationships," Heather declares. "I'm ready to take a risk."

Lacy, 23

Lacy is the quintessential Alaskan tomboy, but reveals that "there's secretly a girly girl under all the layers of flannel and fishing gear." After arriving in Miami, she finds herself a little fish in a giant pond. After working at her family's lodge on the tiny village of Port Lyons, she welcomes the opportunity to define herself on her own terms in Miami. She says of her hometown: "There's not really that many guys to choose from - all of them I've either known since birth or I'm related to." The broad array of men in Miami is new for her and she strives to find a guy who is as unique as she is.

Haley, 22

Haley is young and inexperienced and the trip to Miami is her first foray into real dating. When asked about any exes, she shares "I wanted to get a tattoo... and my ex-boyfriend happens to be the only tattoo artist in town. You go to the store, they're there, to a restaurant they're there." So while excited to be single and on the prowl in the sun-soaked Miami scene, she quickly discovers just how big the world outside Alaska is. At first, it's a challenge for her to adapt, but her friendship with the other girls provides the foundation from which she can spread her wings. The youngest on this journey, Haley has only had one boyfriend so far and knows it is time to start taking more chances on finding love.

ALASKAN WOMEN LOOKING FOR LOVE is produced by Jarrett Creative for TLC.
