-- “Good Morning America”’s dating experiment is at an end and ABC News producer Erica Scott –- who crisscrossed the nation to go on 10 dates in 10 states -– is back in New York to reveal which of her 10 suitors she’ll pick for a second date on Valentine’s Day.
She also drove a dune buggy in Las Vegas and explored the Santa Monica Pier.
On Friday Scott returned to “GMA”’s Times Square studio to reveal the date she wanted to see again on Valentine’s Day: it was Tom, her date from Jackson Hole.
“He and I had a best friend mutual connection so when I went in I just automatically felt really comfortable,” Scott explained. “And we spent so much time dogsledding so you really get to talk and it was just a lot of fun.”
Tom, who joined via Skype, said he really enjoyed Scott’s “upbeat personality” and “had a great time with her.”
“We kept it light, kept it fun. It was a great time,” he said.
While she isn’t so sure about a long-term relationship, Scott thinks he’s a new best friend and is excited about their upcoming Valentine’s Day date in New York City.
During the experiment Scott quickly mastered the art of digital dating -– using a variety of apps to match her with potential partners –- but she also found some dates the old-fashioned way when friend and colleagues set her up. Scott said she met many cute and intelligent guys.
Chris Harrison, the host of “The Bachelor,” appeared live to give Scott and her Valentine’s Day date some advice. Harrison also presented Scott with a rose.
“My advice would be to give him advice,” he said. “What would you like to do on your second date? Where should this go?”
“I don’t know,” Scott replied. “I guess anything else that’s like a fun activity to go do. I’m not like a sit and hang out around a fireside type of person.”
Adventures by Disney arranged the paddle boarding and dogsledding dates. Disney is the parent company of ABC News.
