We posted photos of our 26 finalists here on our website, and on  Each couple received a number which identify them as a couple.  The more votes they receive, the more chances they will have to move into the second round.  Deadlines for the first round is September 9, 2011.
ONLY ten couples with the most votes, will move into the second round.  In the second round, PINK will email each couple 5 different questions composed by PINK’s panel of five judges to include PINK publisher Mr. David Cohen, lesbian icon rock singer Catie Curtis among others. The judges will vote for the final 3 couples to move into the final round. The three finalists will be asked one more question by the 5 judges and then they will vote for the winner. The winner couple will be announced September 26, 2011 on my blog.
