entire life to her family. Everything she does
is about her grandkids and her great-grandkids.>>Michel:
My name is Michel Sproles. I’m a mother, a wife,
business owner and a granddaughter.>>Taylor:
I’m Taylor York. I’m a student and
I am a granddaughter. Darren is my grandson, Michel,
my granddaughter’s husband. He plays professional football
for the Philadelphia Eagles.>>Michel:
[WHISTLE] How do you all feel about finding
Granny a boyfriend? Um, no. [LAUGHTER] I think it’s healthy
for my grandmother to find a companion
other than her grandkids.>>Darlene:
She needs to be able to have someone
that she can confide in.>>Doris:
At this point in my life, I think it would be
nice to find a companion or someone to go
out with every now and then.>>Michel:
We just want the best for her. She takes care of us, so we’ve got to
make sure we take care of her.>>Taylor:
My granny’s just not going to date anyone. She’s a prize.>>Michel: My plan
is to grill these guys. I want to make sure that
Granny is getting the best. ♪ music playing ♪>>Michel:
So, Granny, what do you feel about
going on a blind date?>>Doris:
Oh, my God, I’ve never been on a
blind date in all of my life.>>Michel:
What do you think you would want in a guy?>>Doris: If he could look like
Denzel Washington, it’s over. It’s done. ♪ music playing ♪ >>Michel: I would
want someone for my granny that is still active.>>Taylor: Somebody
who loves to dance.>>Doris: I like a guy
with a sense of humor.>>Michel:
A gentleman. Someone that I know
is going to open up the doors, still believes in chivalry. She’s very family-oriented, so I think
that’s important for her.>>Doris: Sex is
important in a relationship. Yes, it is.>>Taylor:
It’s not going to happen. It’s not there. I’m not going
to let her do that?>>Taylor:
Have sex.>>Doris:
This is hilarious.>>Taylor:
She doesn’t need to. >>Michel: What is it
that you don’t like in guys?>>Doris: Somebody
that thinks he’s all that. So, you know.>>Taylor: Nobody
who dresses like a pimp.>>Michel: She doesn’t want
someone with a Jheri curl.>>Doris:
A scary curl. And that means a
Jheri curl that went sour. I cannot stand
for someone to be late.>>Michel: If my granny
had to support someone, it wouldn’t
get past the first date.>>Doris:
Good girl. That’s right. You were right on the money. >>Michel: All right, so, we’re going to
go through these bios and this is
going to be the “no” pile.

OK, over here.>>Michel: And this is
going to be the “yes” pile.>>Taylor: No. He looks youthful.>>Michel:
Yeah, he seems to be…>>Taylor:
Some spring in his step.>>Michel:
He’s OK. Maybe a little
different for Granny, but we could put
him in the “yes” pile.>>Taylor: Right,
but still yes.>>Michel: He has nice teeth, but I don’t know…>>Taylor:
Yeah, he does. They look like his teeth.>>Michel:
Definitely a no. No.>>Michel:
So, we like these guys, so let’s
watch their videos.>>Taylor: OK.>>Lance:
I love hip-hop. Music is one of my passions.>>Michel:
And Lance likes cats.>>Lance:
Can’t wait to meet you.>>Michel:
He’ll go in the “no” pile.>>Taylor: Yeah.>>Levi:
Love is something that I need. Love is respect. Love is something
that you can’t turn over. Love is a flower.>>Taylor:
So this is Levi, I think. He’s age appropriate.>>Levi:
Levi should find love because that’ll
add to his equation.>>Michel: He seems like
he might be a lot of fun.>>Taylor: Yeah. So this guy’s name is Rudy.>>Rudy: My name is Rudy Benzer. I like to play golf.>>Taylor:
He might be good for Granny.>>Michel: OK. So we’re
putting him in the “yes” pile?>>Taylor: Yeah.>>Michel:
“Yes” pile, OK.>>Taylor: Mm-kay…>>Andy:
My name is Andy. Introduce me to your granny.>>Taylor: No. Next.>>Phillip:

the most like Granny.>>Phillip: Your grandmother
will see me as a good man.>>Michel: But I
feel like we should ask my mom.>>Taylor:
We need a third opinion?>>Michel: Yeah.>>Taylor: Hi, Auntie.>>Hi.>>Michel:
How are you? We’re trying to figure out who to choose for
Granny to go on this date.>>Darlene:
I think Phillip. I say that because he looks

sure she’s comfortable. That’s the most
important thing.>>Michel: So, Phillip?>>Taylor:

how are you guys doing?>>Michel:
How was your date, Granny?>>Doris:

this will open the door for her to go on future dates.>>Michel: I think you’re
