Kick-Off: SMEBB 2012

So, lately we’ve been getting a lot of questions about whether Girls on the Grid is holding a third annual Search for Sacramento’s Most Eligible Bachelor – or as some like to call it, SMEB. For the uninitiated, the first SMEB took place in 2010, with Patrick Harbison of P-Weekly fame claiming the title of Sacramento’s Most Eligible Bachelor. Eric Dietz took the honors in 2011, and after a triumphant reign (hint: he is no longer “eligible”), he is now ready to hand over his crown, Miss America-style.

The good news is, we will be holding a third annual event, but things we’re going to do things a little differently this time. This year, we’re teaming up with P-Weekly to host the first-ever search for Sacramento’s Most Eligible Bachelor and Bachelorette! So if you have a single friend, relative, coworker, secret crush, WHATEVER, here’s your chance to give them the spotlight they deserve!

Here’s how it works:

  • Nominations open on Monday, March 5th and end on Friday, March 16th.
  • Submissions are 100% anonymous (but if a nominee would like to withdraw from the contest, they can do so)
  • Please submit all nominations to girlsonthegrid AT gmail DOT com. Include a photo of your nominee, along with their name, age, occupation, and why you think they are Sacramento’s Most Eligible Bachelor/Bachelorette!

Voting will begin on Tuesday, March 20th. The top finalists will be announced that same Tuesday LIVE on Good Day Sacramento and the winners will announced at a special event on Wednesday, April 4th at District 30.

We know there are some great single guys and gals out there, so make sure you nominate them next week and vote for them starting on Tuesday, March 20th!

  • UPDATE: We’re partnering with WEAVE for the third year running. Be sure to bring a clothing donation (lightly used suits/business attire) to help local women get back on their feet.
  • UPDATE: We’ll announce the top 10 Bachelors and Bachelorettes LIVE on Good Day Sacramento on Tuesday, March 20!
