Insight Into the Cast of Most Eligible Dallas

Of all of the shows that have been filming in and around Dallas lately, the most anticipated is Bravo's upcoming Most Eligible: Dallas.  Airing August 15 at 9:00 PM, Bravo says of the show's theme, "Some are looking for true love while others have perfected the art of the one-night stand, and somehow their love lives have all crossed paths at one time or another. Dallas serves as the sexy backdrop for this jaw-dropping docu-series that follows a group of young, hot singles is living it up like only Texas socialites can."

Bravo now says the show will feature three men and three women — I find this very interesting because they filmed five guys and three girls.  So, what happened?! I can only assume that once they started filming some of the cast just weren't giving them "good TV" and were demoted to secondary cast members - meaning that you will see them flit in and out of various scenes, but they won't be main characters. Think Real Housewives of New Jersey and Kim G.  'Nuf said.

I'm still confused about Neill Skylar's role on the show. She's listed on Bravo's website as a "Cast" member, but she is not individually featured on the promo video and sources inside the cast tell me she's a "secondary" character... so we'll have to wait and see how big of a role she really ends up playing.

I have done several posts about the show and have gotten to know many on the cast personally over the last several months.  You may have seen the promo pieces Bravo is airing, but let me share with you a little bit of insight about who these "eligible's" really are:

Tara Harper says her three best attributes are “blonde hair, blue eyes, big boobs.”  Out of all of the cast members I have met, Tara's probably the person I find the most genuine and personable.

She's a SMU graduate and the President of Paws In The City, whose mission is to save as many dogs and cats as possible from being euthanized at the City of Dallas shelter.  Anybody who is an animal lover is just good people in my book.  You can follow Tara on Twitter or become a Fan of her Facebook Fan Page!

Glenn & Matt
The dreamy heart throb of this show is going to be NFL punter Glenn Pakulak of the Oakland Raiders.  At first glance I though he was going to be a douchebag, but I am told that honor will be going to Matt.  Turns out Glenn is a real sweetheart. Catch him while you can girls!!  He's a Mid-Western boy from Michigan who drives a caddy that's been in his family forever. Sentimental. I like that.  He just joined Twitter, so follow him there.

Matt Nordgren had over 21 NCAA scholarship offers before deciding to attend The University of Texas. Matt was the first person in NCAA University of Texas Football history to graduate with two degrees in 3 ½ years.  He now works in the family business and has called himself  the “total package”. 

He might be the best known of the cast right out of the gate from his role as ex-boyfriend to reality "star" Audrina Patridge.   Follow Matt on Twitter.

Courtney Kerr is an “aspiring comedienne” and “sunglass connoisseur,” according to her Twitter page.  Maybe that's because she works at Sunglass Hut.  Yep, that's what I said.  She describes herself as “loud and obnoxious”. I describe her as stunningly beautiful with a great sense of style.

She partnered with "one of her best friends" Amber Venz to style her for the show, so if you love what she's wearing this season, check out Amber's work here.  

You know how they say "Every girl needs a gay"? Drew Ginsburg is the kind of gay every girl needs.  He hilarious with a super-sharp tongue, was nicknamed "Drewcifer" (as in the Devil) in college and likes to think of himself as “not your typical gay”.  Whatever that means.  He has a baby-faced innocence about him, but he is far from innocent! Whoo hoo!

He loves exotic sports cars. Not coincidentally his dad owns Boardwalk Auto Group.  Drew likes to Tweet so follow him on Twitter for witty banter and "like" his new Facebook Fan Page.

After moving away at the young age of 18 to support herself as a musician and actress in Los Angeles and New York City, Neill Skylar has returned to her hometown. The aspiring singer is working hard to launch her music career and gain recognition for her new band. She lives with her 1-year old son and believes that one can still have fun and be a hot mama.

Neill is trying to find her place in Dallas with the help of long-time friend, Matt Nordgren. Though Neill and Matt both say they aren't looking for something serious, the two can't deny their chemistry.

Neill is the only cast member I haven't met, so I have no insight on her...yet.   Get to know her on Twitter.

So, there you have it. Like you, I can't wait for the show to air and the drama to begin!!!  Watch what happens!  You know I will be!!
