Digital innovation further powered Oxygen's ratings success as the network premiered a digital webisode titled, Find Me My Man: Bad Girls Club Bootcamp, featuring three Bad Girls from Season 10 working on their dating flaws with help from Natalie.
In support of the series launch, Oxygen conducted a national dating poll which yielded some interesting results including a third of men admitted to lying to snag a lady online, while 27 percent of all daters admit to dating someone they knew was married. Also, 32 percent of men are willing to overlook a woman's mustache and 1 in 10 women are okay with dating a smelly guy.
Next week on "Find Me My Man," airing Tuesday, April 16 at 9PM ET/PT, matchmaker Natalie Clarice meets with two wildly different clients. Shay is a beautiful yet ditzy woman who needs Natalie's guidance on how to use her mind instead of her body to meet the right men. Then L'Tesia, an uptight virgin who dresses provocatively, struggles when dating as men get into her personal space. Click sneak peek to check out next week's episode.
