The show was produced by the Brighter Pictures subsidiary of Endemol and was originally titled Find Me a Man. Recruitment ads for contestants promised “the adventure of a lifetime” with a £10,000 prize to men aged 20 to 35 who “want it all” and are “fit and up for everything.” The contestants on the show were: Mark Dimino, 24, optician Toby Green, 23, student Aron Lane, 22, chef Tom Rooke, 23, lifeguard and ex-ski instructor Scott Gibson, 22, martial arts expert Dominic Conway, 28, Royal Marine Brighter Pictures managing director Gavin Hay said “they had made a point of never referring to Miriam as a woman when getting the men to take part.” Miriam said, “Several of them wondered about me in the first few days. But as the series unfolded, I really thought that we got to like and know each other as friends and had a lot of fun.” In response to allegations that she revealed her big secret by lifting up her skirt she was quoted as saying “I would never lift my skirt up on national TV. My mother brought me up very well.” On the version that aired, Miriam chose Rooke as the winner and then said in front of the assembled contestants:
I tried to be honest with all of you, not just some of you. Yes, I am from Mexico, I am a model, and I'm 21. But Tom, I really love spending time with you and kissing you. You see, I love men, and I love being a woman. But... shh, quiet everybody, please, quiet. But you see, Tom... I am not a woman. I was born as a man.
Rooke initially accepted the prize money and the trip with Miriam on camera. Rooke later rejected the prize prior to airing and joined the other contestants in a lawsuit.
