"I think through time, hot women and rich men have proven that they are attracted to each other," says Jeremy Abelson -- and yes, he's totally serious.
To test his theory, Abelson, 27, organized the first-ever Natural Selection Speed Date: Rich Guys & Hot Girls event, which took place February 7, in New York City.

Men had to make over $200,000 annually if they were under 25 years old; 26- to 29-year-olds had to make $300,000; men 30 and up had to gross half a million.
Women, meanwhile, needed to be supermodel-hot, as judged by celebrity matchmaker Janis Spindel.
Of the 40 men and 40 women who were selected for the event, Abelson claims it was a smashing success, with over half the attendees having some sort of post-event connection."What's great about this concept is guys can approach women and not get rejected on the spot," says Darren Waldholz, 40, president and owner of , headquartered in Ft.

Critics have used words like "crass" and "shallow" to describe such events.
