The Pickup Mansion has now been running for 4 years, and we've had tremendous results!

Every single resident has gotten laid, two residents lost their virginity, two residents got married, and dry spells as long as 2.5 years have been broken. Two graduates have become coaches for Underground Dating Seminar, the hardest coaching job to get in the entire industry.

We've now worked out all of the kinks in our system, and this FAQ will help you understand exactly what you're signing up for and how to get a room in the house.

How long will I live at the Pickup Mansion?

Your stay at the Pickup Mansion will be one full year. Pickup Mansion is a place for only the most dedicated students, so we do not choose people for the program unless they are willing to dedicate a full year to learning.

How does this program compare to a normal UDS workshop?

While all students gain massive improvement in workshops, most people can benefit from a more complete, long term solution. Jake and I have been teaching workshops for years, and we found that there are some students who take a workshop, then do very little practicing in the next few months, and then they come sign up for a 2nd workshop, and show very little improvement from last time.

This is how we discovered that some students need a consistent program to improve. By training these students every month, we can save them from “moving backwards” on their journey. The amount of improvement you can experience if your game is always going forwards, and rarely goes backwards, is far more than what you can gain in one workshop.

What kinds of different rooms do you have? How many houses are there?

We currently have 2 houses. Here's a few pictures I took with my camera phone.

We have a variety of rooms and coaching packages available in both houses. We have rooms ranging from the small and basic to the mega-pimped out luxury suite.

When are rooms available?

We are now taking applications for Feb. 1st, 2014.

What kind of cool stuff is in the house?

Both houses have the following amenities:

- In home theater setup, including projector TV and surround sound

- High end Denon sound system, multi zone music system

- Wii on a 6 foot screen

- BlueRay/DVD on a 6 foot screen

- Hot tub

- Fireplace

- Air Conditioning

- Mood lighting on remote control or dimmer

- LoveSac in the living room (perfect for end game)

- Barbeque

What kind of activities do residents attend?

Our students take a workshop every month, attend weekly theory sessions, and are encouraged to do lots of practicing in between.

Can I work a job while at Pickup Mansion?

Yes, most residents work a job or work from home. All of our activities are optional. Residents are free to travel, work, and to come and go as they please. We advocate a balanced lifestyle which includes career, hobbies, friends, and pickup. The Pickup Mansion is not a 24/7 Pickup Prison, it's a supportive self help environment.

What kinds of jobs do most students have? What if I have to look for a job in LA?

We have a lot of IT guys who work from home. We've also had a fitness instructor, and engineer, a writer, college students, a bartender, professional poker players, entrepreneurs, a doctor....our students have many occupations.

It's not unusual for our students to move from far from home with no job waiting for them. They just save up some money, and take the leap of faith. Most have ended up with better, higher paying jobs than they had in the life they left behind.

How often do the residents go out to work on their game?

We usually have from 5-8 students in the program. Some go out as much as 7 days a week at times. It really depends what the coaches want them working on. For some students, who are working on inner game or identity, we prefer that they go out only 1-3 nights per week, and then raise that to 4-7 nights a week when these problems have been handled.

The coaches and I treat every student as an individual, and use a holistic approach to coaching them. We don't just blanket the whole group with generic, impersonal advice like “Go out and practice every night.”

What if I want to stay for more than 12 months?

At the end of the year, you can bring this up to Jake and I, and if we think there is more work to be done, and results will be improved by working together more, we will approve a longer stay.

What is the cost of living in Pickup Mansion?

There are different kinds of rooms and different coaching packages, and prices vary accordingly. Before you start thinking about what Pickup Mansion costs, first think about what's included:

Rent in Hollywood

Water bill

Cable Bill

Electricity bill

Trainings with UDS Coaches

Trainings with Brad P

Furniture- bedroom

Furniture- living room


Hot Tub

Unique Opportunity Value

Wingmen always available

Access to #1 PUA

If you tried setting this up on your own, you'd spend about $70,000 and it would take about 4 months to set up.

If you move to Pickup Mansion, you will pay a lot less than that, and everything will be already set up for you. You'll pay monthly rent, like any other apartment you've ever lived in, and all of your bills will be already paid. No more water bill. No more cable bill. Just one easy rent payment.

Why is your application so long?

I personally read every application that comes in within 48 hours. I know every single guy in Pickup Mansion personally. I need to know as much as I can right away about you. A lot of the application is standard information that would be asked of you for any apartment you wanted to move into. If you can't be responsible enough to get through the application, you're probably not a good candidate for this program.

What can I do to make sure that I get picked for a room?

Take a workshop or 1on1 with us so we know who you are and what your game is like. About 80% of our Pickup Mansion residents took a UDS training before moving in. It's nice to have guys moving in who we already have some working relationship with.

If that's not possible for you, you should become an active member of the 30/30 Club.

Just like many other things in life, getting into Pickup Mansion is about “who you know.” If you already know Jake, Fadeaway, or any of my coaches, and they give you a positive recommendation, you're almost certain to be chosen.

If you've made a good impression on the 30/30 coaches, that will help also.

Is it possible to get selected if I have not been to a workshop?

Yes. There are times when I choose guys based on the phone interview. That's where the other 20% come from.

Do I have to have awesome game to be chosen?

No. All we want is people who have a good attitude about learning, a high level of dedication, and bring positive energy to their housemates. Your pre-exisiting skill level has nothing to do with the selection process. After 3 months of the program, all of our students obtain impressive levels of game, so we don't really care what their game looks like in the beginning.

Is this a reality TV show, a sweepstakes, or some kind of free event?

No. I often get asked that, and I don't know where that idea is coming from.

Like all UDS events, we refuse to allow any media coverage. This is not entertainment, it's serious self help.

It's not TV and it's not free. We've invested over a million dollars to get the best houses, the best logistics, the best décor, and the best coaches. No one rides for free. If you're looking for a handout or a TV show, you've come to the wrong place.

If you're looking for a focused, supportive, and luxurious environment where you can become ten times the man you are today, then look no further. You're exactly the kind of guy I want in the Pickup Mansion.
