Ahead of its most recent episode, the 51-year-old actress dropped some hints about her connection to the show. She eventually revealed to her fans that she would be on the show looking for her "Mr. Right". 

During her episode on the show, LisaRaye's identity was kept anonymous til the final minutes of the program. "The Proposal" works in a way that a group of individuals compete for theaffections of one lucky person, who they do not get to see or even hear from until it's time to propose or be proposed to.

The men unknowingly trying to get her affections travel from all around the country and the world, to get to Los Angeles, where she is based. These men then share their personal stories, and were grilled by McCoy's daughter Kai.

Eventually, two men caught LisaRaye's eye: Adonis from Miami, and Anthony from her hometown Chicago. Both men tried to sweep her off her feet with their words, but it was the 44-year-old sales representative and poet Anthony that she chose to marry.

“I’ve been married before, and it ended not so well. And you would think I would be tainted by that. Except it really made me go more towards love. I am looking for someone who’s looking for that special someone. That really is a fan of love and believes in love.”
