Twenty women go on group date with anonymous Mormon millionaire

Twenty women went on a group date with an anonymous Mormon millionaire last week, with participants signing non-disclosure agreements to prevent them from revealing his identity. 

The women, selected from a pool of 2,500 applicants, went on a four-course dinner social with the bachelor last Friday. 

According to the Salt Lake Tribune, the evening also included a PowerPoint presentation detailing the top 10 reasons he had enlisted the matchmaking agency, a group conversation and a five-minute 'mini-date' with each woman.

Finally, each participant was given a necklace by the millionaire, who the LDS Matchmaking agency said was 'blown away by the quality of the women.' 

The competition was advertised last month by several huge billboards lining the Interstate 15 in Salt Lake City - offering up the chance to win a date with the wealthy member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. 

'LDS Millionaire looking for his wife,' they read. 'Exclusive VIP Event June 7.' 

The application, according to ELLE Magazine, included a drop down menu for candidates to select their 'body type' from 'slender, athletic, average, a few extra pounds, large, and petite.'

The women were also required to submit two photos and answer several questions, including: 'Did you serve an LDS Mission?' 

The event's organizers said in a statement to the Tribune that the night had been a success. 

'We expect good things to come for him and wish him and the women in attendance all the best,' the LDS Matchmaker statement reads.   

The finalists came from several states including New York, Utah, Louisiana and Idaho.

'Most were college educated and seven had graduate degrees,' the statement said. 

'All were members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, were beautiful, well-spoken and came away having made new friends and were glad they had come.'
