Yep, before you even meet Beverly, you're gonna have to submit a resumé and a driver's license, ace a customized interview, and survive a criminal background check. Gannon -- who lurks around gallery openings and other social events looking for matches for his clients -- will then whittle the suitor pool down to ten, hold a cocktail party, and further trim the herd. At the end of the three- to four-week process -- as the name implies, the service handles only one client at a time -- Beverly will have hopefully found some millionaire safari-hunter who's never heard of Craigslist and boasts a handlebar mustache and a Scotch collection.

Oh yeah, and getting to meet Beverly ain't free, either. While Gannon's clients pay the recession-special fee of $500 for his services, the suitors pay $100 to try their luck at the cocktail party.
