I'm not a fan of reality shows, but I'll be tuning one in tonight to see a local man, and a friend, on one.

In a Facebook post this week, realtor Alex Wolking from Rock Island, who lives in Chicago now, announced that he would be appearing on an episode of 'Love Connection' on FOX tonight at 8pm.

Alex wasn't able to give me much more detail about the show due to contractual obligations, but he said that "it was one of the craziest, strangest, exhilarating things I've ever done. Met so many fabulous people and made new friends along the way."

He is not the 'dater' but a suitor on the episode entitled 'Bridge to Nowhere.' Alex said he was responsible for arranging the date.

Beyond those few details, we'll all have to tune in to tonight's episode of 'Love Connection' on FOX at 8pm to see how Alex fared on the program.
