Jodie is a successful businesswoman who used to work on the committee of Narcotics Abuse and Control for the government and now she feels that her responsibilities to her son make her not the ideal catch. But as long as a man is confident, takes care of himself, and isn't hung up on age (Jodie once dated a man who was 22!), she is ready to find a new partner who is as spontaneous and wild as she is.

FN: How did you get involved in the show?
Jodie: First of all I want to say that I loved the experience. I actually heard about the show through several friends of mine. My trainer had a friend in casting and recommended that I try out for the show. I put in my application and pictures and applied and made it on to the show.

FN: Did you know there was going to be such a big age difference and that he would be 30 years old?
Jodie: When we started taping we knew the girls were all going to be in their 40's and that the guy was in his 30's. We all thought he was going to be pretty surprised.

FN: After one episode did you have feelings for Mark?
Jodie: I spent about 3 minutes with him so I never really had an opportunity to bond with him. It was 3 in the morning and my teeth were chattering, so we just made small talk but I could tell he was nervous with the whole thing. Maybe if we had more time together things might have been different.

FN: What did you think about the other girls? Were they easy to get along with? Was there friction between the girls?
Jodie: I loved the other girls. I had a blast with all of them but Jayanne and I spent a lot of time together because we share similar attitudes and thoughts. Jennifer and I shared a room together and she was great! There were moments peoples behavior bugged me but overall I loved the cast.

FN: What did you think when Maria stole him away and took him to the caba�a?
Jodie: I did not take anything personally. There is a lot of choreography that goes on. I was a little surprised to care about the experience as much as I did and bond with the girls so fast.

FN: How do you think Mark felt about dating older women?
Jodie: He was probably wondering "What have I got myself into". He was trying to maintain throughout all of it and admitted that he had never dated a woman older than 26 years old. I think the experience opened his eyes. Life begins at 40!!

FN: How did it make you feel when only Jayanne, Maria and Lynn went on the date? Did you feel left out?
Jodie: Jayanne and I were heartbroken to be separated. There's always the feeling of not being chosen but I really wanted to hang out with the girls too. I am a big sports buff so I think it would have been fun to participate.

FN: What's next for you? Are you going back to your job?
Jodie: Yes my company has been great, they were really flexible with my time off. I would love to do more TV, maybe host, be on a soap or maybe even have my own show.

FN: Do you watch much Reality TV?
Jodie: I never watched much reality TV before but before I went on the show my mother told me I had to become familiar with the different programs out there so I have been watching a lot of it. I love Dancing with the Stars and Deal or No Deal.

FN: Are you dating anyone now?
Jodie: No, just meeting new people and dating different people. I have dated anywhere from a 22 year old to a 52 year old.

FN: How about some dating tips for our readers?
Jodie: Love and accept yourself! Go have fun and date whoever! Be curious about the other person, guys like confident, unconcerned women.
