Money can’t buy you love, but shouldn’t $15 million be able to help get you a date?
Apparently not if you’re Dylan Smith, the 24 year-old co-founder and CFO of Box.net. His company today announced $15 million in new VC funding, but it seems he hasn’t been able to find the right “Scarlett Johansson type” in Palo Alto. Rather than continuing to woo through traditional channels — or perhaps go hunting for a hooker with a heart of gold — Smith turned to The Millionaire Matchmaker, a reality TV show that pairs the rich and romantically-inept with pretty young golddiggers.
His episode aired last night, and you can watch it after the jump. For those who can’t stomach it, here’s the synopsis: Smith seems like a very nice kid who has spent a few hundred thousand too many hours in front of a computer. He gets a minor makeover, learns to dance (sort of) and meets a girl who later visits him in Palo Alto. Enjoy:
