On Thursday, January 29 WE television station hosted a screening for their upcoming show “Match Made in Heaven,” at the Twelve Hotel in Atlantic Station. The reality show scheduled to premiere tonight at 8 p.m. will star America’s 1st Black bachelor – Shawn Bullard.
Bullard is a handsome self-made millionaire, who grew up in Philadelphia, and after two years in the NFL decided to launch an independent real estate firm. While he has achieved tremendous success, he’s ready to settle down, and hopes that WE TV will help him find “the one.”
In addition to his desire to find true love, Bullard signed up for the show because he wanted to portray a different side of reality television. During a panel, moderated by Real Housewives of Atlanta, Claudia Jordan – Bullard described the need for young black men to see an intelligent and successful black man on their television screens.
While the show does include its fair share of ratchet, it’s worth giving a try. If not for the entertainment, to learn more about Bullard and his mother – a woman who is clearly not for the games or the fake behinds.
Check out some photos from the premiere below. Watch the trailer here, and make sure you tune in tonight at 8 p.m.
