It's often said that love is blind... but is that really true? If given the chance to choose a woman in her 20s, or a 40-something on the prowl, will a man go for youth or maturity?
More than just a dating competition, Age of Love is a social experiment based on the question: When it comes to falling in love, does age really matter?
Hosted by actor Mark Consuelos (All My Children), the eight-episode series features a new twist on the reality dating show format.
Seven beautiful, sophisticated women in their 40's, playfully nicknamed the "Cougars," vie for the affections of 30-year-old Australian tennis superstar Mark Philippoussis, along with six fun, enthusiastic women in their 20's, coined the "Kittens."
But only one woman can win Mark's heart. Is she an attractive, experienced woman who knows what she wants and has already carved out a niche of her own?
Or, is she a sexy younger woman who lacks the experience of her older counterpart, but has an enthusiasm for life that only comes with the inexperience of youth?
In the end, both Mark and the viewers will discover if love is truly ageless.
