No need to spend the next ten weeks sweating over who will win THE BACHELORETTE.

Manhattan matchmaker Christina Bloom says she already knows who bridal stylist Desiree Hartsock will chose — just from looking at contestant’s pictures.

Her pick: Brooks Forester, a 28 year-old sales representative and part time model from Salt Lake City.

“I have come to the conclusion that we are attracted to people who have similar facial features,” says Bloom, founder of, which boasts 70,000 members.

“It triggers a sense of familiarity and what we call chemistry.”

Facial recognition software has been used by the government and crime prevention agencies for decades.  Bloom is the first to use the technology to facilitate hook-ups.

She believes many of the most successful couples — like Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon — actually look more like brother and sister.

Bloom uses a custom developed computer program to analyze each of her clients’ faces and match them with prospective partners.

Her algarhythm — developed by a team of researchers in California — has also correctly predicted the winner or runner-up on the past two seasons of the ABC dating show.

“Desiree and Brooks share the same outline of the face, both have narrowing jawlines and wider temples,” she says.  “The lips are the same shape and their eyes are equidistant on the face. They are a very strong facial feature match with a lot of potential.”

Hartsock was one of 25 women turned down by Sean Lowe during the most recent season of THE BACHELOR.

“I didn’t think they were a match,” Bloom says. “I didn’t see it.”

Based on her system, Bloom also believes Lowe could soon dump his fiancee Catherine Giudici for DANCING WITH THE STARS pro Peta Murgatroyd.

Sean and Peta, who were eliminated from “Dancing” amid rumors of a ballroom romance, are “great facial feature matches,” she believes.

“I really believe that there is a strong enough connection for something to happen.”

“My gut tells me that he is going to have a hard time with Catherine and he just picked her because she is pretty and she is nice.  But that doesn’t make a good relationship.”


“The outline of the face and the spacing of the eyes are most important,” Bloom says.  “But the shape of the eyes don’t matter.”

“The nose doesn’t matter at all.   That is why you can get a Yoko Ono and John Lennon.  What we have learned is that when companies do this for security reasons, they don’t use the nose either.”

“The chin is important.  It could be larger but it has to be the same shape.”
