{ Date #1 - TIFFANY MIGDAT }


About 3 months ago I thought my only involvement with The Mormon Bachelor was Casting Director for Kent Tuttle, my best friend.  When Erin called me and told me Kent had fallen for Carlie while in California filming for show at first I was really frustrated.  I had spent hours and hours on Skype interviews with the girls that had applied to go on dates with Kent and it seemed to be all for nothing.  Little did I know that the stars would align for me to take over as this season’s Mormon Bachelor in only a few short weeks.  When I first expressed interest in stepping into the role I worried that all the girls and TMB fans would be disappointed that it was me and not Kent dating the amazing women I had chosen for him.  At the same time, I was excited about the opportunity to get to know the girls and date them because I already knew that they had amazing qualities and were the kind of girls you bring home to mom.  After prayerfully considering the decision, I decided to step forward and assume the title of Mormon Bachelor – I’m ready to get married after all and I have never been one to turn down a great opportunity.

Erin explained to me shortly after accepting the call to be the next Mormon Bachelor that she had given each girl the opportunity to continue on with the show, or not participate if they had their heart set on Kent.  From what I understand about 6 dropped out and 6 continued on to come out to Los Angeles and date me.  So I had no idea what to expect when I opened the door the first night to Tiffany Migdat.  Needless to say I was thrilled.  Tiffany and I had a great first Skype call and I had thought about her several times after that first interaction.  I was hoping she wasn’t one of the 6 dropouts because I really wanted to get to know her and felt like there could be chemistry at the end of the road.

The date with Tiffany was amazing because it was a simple idea but was a TON of fun.  Simplicity goes a long, long way.  I could tell Tiffany was a little nervous to have the cameras on the date so I tried to make her more comfortable by cracking jokes and putting my arm around her to let her know I was glad she was there.  Tiffany is a stunning woman, with an equally bright personality.  Although she was a little nervous, I still had a great time with her and I was glad we were finally on a date together after meeting through Skype several weeks before.  We were able to get to know each other pretty well on the date and she definitely has a mystery about her that I’m looking forward to discovering in time.  Tiffany has a quiet confidence and swagger that is so intriguing and attractive to me.  I felt like I was around a good friend and it was natural to be myself around her.

I can’t wait to see where this goes with Tiffany.  If it’s just toward friendship that will be amazing but I hope it ends up being more.  We especially connected when we danced at the concert and had fun laughing at each other’s awkward dance moves or lack thereof.  When we walked around the park I felt like I was walking and talking with someone that I could fall for.  Sometimes the best romances and love stories start out as friendships and maybe it’s the same way with Tiffany and I.  I would love to have her back on another date and hopefully the nerves will be gone and we can see where everything will go from here.  I know I’m just starting this journey but I hope she will say yes and see what lies ahead on a 2nd date.

Ok don't hate ladies, but the Sistas already got a sweet spot for Tiffany. If you haven't been on your date yet, you gotta up your game cause Tiff is a front runner! Put your game face on ladies!

Aaron S said...

Looks like it was a great date, and that Tiffany is super cute!

Emma Koller said...

I wasn't sure that I would like Tiffany because I wondered if she was high-maintenance too, but she is such a sweetheart! She has a fantastic personality and brains to boot! I would have to say that he would be lucky to have her!

Kelly Morrissey said...

She is so sweet...and super cute.
And I like that she decided to continue with TMB even after Kent dropped. It is nice that she and Chris had already Skyped! Super cute hoping for Date 2.

Ashley said...

I feel so badly that Chris called Tiffany "high maintenance" because she is such a beautiful girl! She also seems so genuinely nice!! I don't consider her high maintenance at all. I think she just likes to look her best. I loved her!

Good luck Tiffany!! :)

Alisha said...

I know Tiffany and this girl is LEGIT! Gorgeous, spiritual, funny, and down right amazing!! Loved their date! It was so cute! They seemed like they had fun together!

Lexi Wallis said...

Fun date! Tiffany is super cute and seems like a great person!

high maintenance? How disappointing! What do you expect? You have a wonderful date with a darling girl and at the very last minute you label her high maintenance?! I can't believe it! Guys need to figure out what they want. Do you want a girl who wears tivas to dinner and doesn't comb her hair she had cut at fantastic sam's with a $1 off coupon or do you want a girl who cares for herself, maintains a healthy weight and who you are proud to have on your arm? Looking beautiful takes effort! Thank goodness I'm married to a man who realizes that looking put together requires some maintenance.

She seems like a really sweet girl and I think that's cool that they were able to get to know each other a little more through skype beforehand.

I am kinda bummed that the feel of the video is so much different than in past seasons. I would have liked to see more of the actual date. Maybe that's just me though.

Teena said...

The high maintenance comment seems like an insecure reaction. Tiffany is 100% comfortable wearing sweats to dance parties and she is GORGEOUS without any makeup on. What a catch!

The Ace of Jace said...

Awesome date! Looks like there is a lot of chemistry too (other than the "hmc" comment). Best of luck Tiffany!!!

Ash said...

whats that first song called? i love it!

Rick Buck said...

High Maintenance!? Haha... As the previous Mormon Bachelor and one who has been on a date with Tiffany, I can tell you that Tiffany is NOT high maintenance. I wish our date could have been posted. One of the funnest and funniest first dates ever.

Misty said...

Tiffany you are beautiful and not high maintenance!!!! Don't listen to him!

Geoff said...

Just to be clear - being nice and being high maintenance are not mutually exclusive. Not sure why everyone keeps saying, "She's totally nice!." No one is disputing that. She seems to be a doll.

AJ Candrian said...

She's darling. Really darling.

AJ Candrian said...

She's absolutely darling. Really darling.

Hi, I'm Erin said...

She's so cute- I think she would find it funny that he called her "hm." I loved her! I'm hoping he will grow on me a little more...

Connie said...

high maintenance is NOT a compliment! What is he doing?!
