Emily, 26 -- a single mom who lives with her 6-year-old daughter Ricki in Charlotte, North Carolina -- is hit with a bad case of nerves in the premiere, but soon warms up to the men as they compete to impress her.
Tony makes like Prince Charming and presents her with a glass slipper. Jef, a successful entrepreneur, springs onto the scene on a skateboard. Party MC Stevie shows off his "can't miss" dance moves. Travis offers a gift with a special meaning for Emily and her daughter. And Kalon is not to be outdone and lands in his private helicopter, much to the chagrin of the other men.
