This first episode really explains the mission Oprah and her team set out on to accomplish. As I was getting ready for the Love Rally on day one, my best friend, Ramiah, took some video. She asked if I was nervous, and I said, “Not really.” Then, I asked her for her opinion on what boots I should wear, and she told me she wasn’t sure. I said, “I’m meeting Oprah, come on. I’ve gotta look snazzy!” Clearly, I was a little nervous.

Why did I get involved with Lovetown, USA: At first, I thought Lovetown, USA was just another dating show, but I should have known that Oprah had bigger plans for Kingsland. On day one, I heard Oprah's words, and I understood what she was challenging us to do. So I decided to get involved by helping to organize community members who wanted to make a difference. I decided to "be the love"...but more on that as the show progresses.

Name: Paul Carrick Brunson
Hometown: Washington, D.C.
First Date: I was an early dater...very early. I recall in the 4th grade, after school, walking a girl to the playground and sharing my lunch with her that I saved from earlier that day. We ate, talked and played on the swings. Good times!
Best Date: Hands down, the first date with my wife was my all-time best date. It was over 12 years ago, and I still think about it often. We ate at Pizza Hut; I picked cheese out of her braces. Then, we saw Hell Raiser 2, and she talked through the entire movie. We then drove to a nearby beach and ran into a homeless gentleman that did the most amazing magic tricks we had ever seen. Afterward, we sat in my car and fell asleep talking. Thirteen hours total of first date magic. Best date of my life!
