Chicago Dating Concierge Rachel Canis to Appear on NBC's 'The Match Off'

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - July 8, 2010) -  Rachel Canis, president of Chicago's premiere dating concierge, Best Foot Forward (, will appear on NBC's new reality series, "The Match Off," on Saturday, July 10, at midnight CT/ET/PT. On the show, Canis will compete against fellow Chicago matchmaker PJ Osgood to find a match for local single Megan Bentley.

The daughter of a matchmaker, Canis inherited a natural ability for mentoring others in their search for Mr. or Ms. Right. After a successful experience, Dana Lyon, a former client, later conceived the idea to launch her own business to help people that had not been successful in the dating world. The end result was Best Foot Forward (BFF) -- a high-end "dating concierge service" that would guide Chicago singles in navigating the often-daunting local dating scene with self confidence.

Armed with a team of relationship, style and communication professionals, the company provides consultation on all aspects of the dating process. Services include image-building, conversational skills coaching, and real-time "wingman" service (real-time feedback for clients during a date), which are designed to help clients optimize their dating experience, while feeling confident and empowered.

Canis' debut on "The Match Off" promises to bring her one step closer to achieving her mission of helping the Windy City find love, one eligible single at a time.

"While the show is intended to be high-drama entertainment, it has also provided BFF and myself with an invaluable opportunity," said Canis. "We'll get the chance to show America the expertise and intense dedication that goes into helping someone to look and feel their best."
