Ryan Banks is a struggling movie star. His best friend and agent, Todd Doherty, creates a TV show called I Want to Marry Ryan Banks in hopes of saving Banks's faltering career. The show works much like the Bachelor TV show, with fifteen beautiful women competing for Banks's love and affection.
Charlie Norton becomes a contestant when her sister and brother-in-law submit an audition tape for her. Like all the other girls, Norton is picked in order to help boost Banks's image. She is then contacted at her sister's Boston bar by Banks himself, and decides to participate on the show.
Once in the house, Norton becomes fast friends with her roommate Lauren, an aspiring actress who is only using the show to get exposure. She also discovers how "reality" TV shows work, with multiple takes and editing.
As Norton thinks she is falling for Banks, Doherty is feeding him lines. When Norton discovers the man she is in love with is really Doherty, she tries to quit the show, only to find out that it would breach her contract. As "America's choice", Norton and Lauren become the two finalists, despite Norton trying to sabotage her own chances by changing her sweet and easy-going behavior while on a trip with Banks.
With Banks's help, Doherty manages to get Norton back, and they are married a year later.
