HUNTING SEASON Animal-print frock, plunging décolletage, deep tan: hallmarks of the cougar in its prime. A few weeks ago, when we first reported about a nauseating Manhattan speed dating event that would require male participants to meet an annual income threshold of $500,000 (with at least a million in the bank) and females to submit five pictures to prove their hotness, we wondered, "What kind of schmuck would pay $500 to meet a bunch of gold diggers?"

And we were determined to find out.

Last Wednesday, armed "Sultan" Neel Shah with a hidden camera and a ridiculous cover story, and sent him in to swim with the sharks. Our imposter was able to slip into the action at Bruno Jamais restaurant when one of the millionaires left his seat to go to the bathroom. Unfortunately, technical difficulties rendered the video footage useless. Shah did, however, manage to dupe one of Paula Zahn's CNN correspondents into interviewing him on camera. We waited patiently for a week and, on Valentine's Day, the segment finally aired: Neel Shah, aka the "Cumin Baron of Calcutta," aka Bollywood producer, makes his appearance at minute 2:29.
