Reality Travel Date
The segment documents the real life travel romance of two members of the travel dating website where generous travel-loving singles and attractive singles who cannot afford to travel alone are brought together. The generous singles invite attractive singles on all-expense paid trips in either the members’ hometowns or mutually-chosen destinations.
The cameras were rolling as Steven and Sibel met for the first time in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for a weekend getaway. The couple broke the ice with some margaritas provided by a private chef at Villa Marcella, a six-bedroom, 10,000-square-foot beachfront mansion where the couple stayed.
For the couple’s first dinner, the villa’s chef prepared a private meal paired with white wine from The Black Ridge Vineyard for an intimate beach dinner that ended with homemade bananas foster.
On day two of the $7,000 vacation, the two sailed on a 52-foot yacht on which they shared a platter of fruit. Later, they swam to Lover’s Beach. For dinner, the couple indulged on lobster tails and shrimp at Maro’s Shrimp House and sipped on Maro’s famous bulldog cocktail, a margarita-like drink with Corona beer.
The weekend getaway also included horseback riding and a couple’s massage on the beach. The seafood trend continued on the last night as the couple tried Capella Resort’s El Farallon restaurant. Each chose a freshly caught fish from the daily batch displayed market-style on ice.
There is no word on how Sibel repaid Steven for his generous vacation but Steven insists the vacation sparked some romance.
“I think we definitely feel something for each other, after that weekend," Steven told 20/20. "The environment promoted a certain connection."
