Ask most active daters and they'll they'll admit that when they first meet a potential love interest, they know whether they want to spend any additional time with them within the first few minutes. Speed dating capitalizes on this, but now, the time honored formula of rich guys pairing up with hot chicks has been added to the mix.

Pocket Change & Cupid.com recently sponsored Natural Selection Speed Date where the fellas needed to prove a base worth of $1 million in invested assets with $4 million in trust, and earn progressively more as they moved up in age bracket. Once they made the cut, they then forked over $500 to participate. The girls applied by sending in $50 along with 5 photos, which were judged on beauty & hotness by matchmaker Janis Spindel.

Held at NYC's swanky Bruno Jamais, myriad big press outlets & yours truly were there to cover the event. We interviewed the culprits behind it all to get  the scoop - so be sure to check out the video!
