“People have a mental picture of what a 73-year-old person is and what they look like, which is not me,” contestant Christina said.

Turner is a retired restaurateur, father and grandfather. He lives in his dream home on a lake where he loves to host barbecues, play pickleball and spend time with family and friends.

He married his high school sweetheart, Toni, in 1974. After 43 years together, she suddenly fell ill and passed away in 2017.

Six years after Toni’s passing and with the support of his family, Turner is ready to put himself out there and find love again.

Just like Turner, many of the women had long-lasting marriages, along with children and grandkids.

“It’s time for us to realize that in these golden years, we have a lot of life to live,” contestant Faith, 60, said.
