First and foremost I want to celebrate you, the Bravo audience, for keeping an open mind to the powers of editing and story production. Creativity has given me the competitive advantage through my mortgage lead generation company ImagineLending.com. Ingenuity makes me a top producing real estate broker in Dallas/Ft. Worth for buyers and sellers through my company Go Go Realtors, LLC. Inventiveness makes me the fastest growing contact management system specializing in referral tree building with my company Stazzle.com. Originality makes my power tool line Mr. Pit Stop fly off the shelves. People at the top of their game who also possess the qualities I just mentioned are the production staff of The Millionaire Matchmaker. It’s not easy taking 200 hours of footage and compressing that into a 1-hour show with commercials. True talent.
Patti, Patti, Patti. As I said on the show, if Patti worked for me she would operate the bulldozer at one of my construction sites. What she is missing in discretion she fully makes up for in non-diplomacy. I can only laugh at her antics. She’s an entertainer and she’s damn good at it. She’s a polarizing figure. One loves her or hates her and there is truly no gray area.
When Patti and I first met I played a practical joke on her. I looked her straight in the eye and told her, “Patti, you seem like a woman who really knows what’s she doing with her hands.” She looked at me stunned. I told her I got her a gift and handed her a set of power tools from my Mr. Pit Stop line. The Mr. Pit Stop Power Wrench plugs into your cigarette adapter, push a button, and it takes the lug nuts off your tires. The Mr. Pit Stop Power Jack works the same way. Plug into your cigarette adapter, push a button, and it jacks up your car. When I gave her the set, Patti didn’t look happy. Begrudgingly she opened the power tools boxes and inside she found that I got her a Tiffany’s diamond necklace and a Tiffany’s atlas bracelet. She was taken aback and shocked. Patti told me, “These are the nicest gifts anyone has ever given me.” She got up and gave me a kiss.
I just think Zagros will be happiest with a girl from his own culture. I grew up here too and in the end married someone from my same culture. With a big family and strong cultural ties, it's much easier and much more stable.
EEEEWWWWWW!!!!!!! Thank God you have money dude. YIKES!!! But these stupid girls will give it up if they think they are getting something out of it. So really who is to blame here???? But again....EEEEWWWWWW....... He looks like it would stink.
as an iranian-american i strongly feel that you have portrayed iranians and their families poorly in this episode. here are my specific critisims: 1. Dragging your entire family onto the set . . . how can i explain that to anyone?! To a non-iranian, iranians and kurdish families seem like wierd anomolies in the US. Let's not even talk about the family comments that treated the girls like servants ("graphic designer . . . so your home will always be clean", etc) 2. The incident with teal and the intimacy crisis. you should be smarter than that. you should know that getting on TV with a national audience puts all your actions with regard to those dates on camera and in the public eye. You signed up for this. 3. I understand you have used this opportunity as a platform to advertise for your businesses. But please! Not at the expense of the rest of us. I watched this episode with a friends and was speechless and could not explain how this could happen in my culture from the family ridicule to the buldozer comment to the terrible judgment on sex. It is all a disgrace and I hope you have other strong suits. Its not easy to get on TV. But it is definitely not difficult to make an a** out of yourself once you're on.
As an Iranian-American, I was very tickled by last night's episode. Zagros is no different than any other Iranian mamma's boy- acts like he wants nothing more than to please his mother, but in the end still bangs the hot girl in the shortest skirt. If Zagros was truly interested in meeting his future wife, then he might have been more selective in picking his date, even if it was slim pickings at the screening. I was embarrassed for him when he brought his entire clueless family to the screening, especially when his uncle mistook graphic designer with interior designer...'she will keep your house clean...' Ultimately, Zagros still wants to be a playboy and his appearance on the show was nothing more than an ill-fated publicity stunt for his random business endeavors.
I think Teal's eyes were much bigger than her stomach at Sunday brunch and ordered more sausage than she could handle.
i think Zagros came on the show to waste Pattie's and her staff's time. It's apparent that Zagros is a wild tiger, and he certainly doesn't need any training. I doubt he had to come all the way in LA to to exhibit his inevitable promiscuity, thus,violating Pattie's club rules so that he could snatch up his next prey. my heart goes out to Teal, but i think she learnt her lesson for acting irresponsible and gredy.
Zagros wasn't serious nor was he 100% honest about his true intension for being on the show. Pattie knew that, and that's why she initially asked him if he's doing this for his mom or himself? sure enough, his promiscuous actions confirmed the obvious "he just came on the show to suite his mom, and to make his family believe he's in fact putting out effort to consummate a serious marrige"
despite his lack of discipline-i like Zagros. He's a nice cassanova.
I think Zagros is a great looking guy with a lot to offer. I think that it was Teal who made the big mistakes in this, first having sex so soon, when I guarantee Zavros would have waited as long as needed and also discussing money and gifts. Big mistakes. She has issues. Very pretty girl, but guys always look at the body, mistake for Zagros. Zagros really should look for an educated woman who is from the same culture and then all will be happy.
I think Zagros is so cool, I love the fact he is so close to his family, any story sounds true until someone tells the other side and sets the record straight. We want to see more of Zagros.
Zagros, you actually got what you wanted. Some tail from a pretty girl. You didn't want a relationship, it's not what you want to do. So go and have your "rumshaker" as the Aussies would say. Don't apologize, but when you get it out of your system them find out something deeper and more meaningful. Best of luck to you.
P.S. Your shameless self-promotion style really needs to have some work. Please seek a public relations person on the best way to get your message out about what you do.
Zagros, I was truly revolted by last night's show, being an avid watcher of Bravo, the true crack over the air supplier. However, reading your blog now, I can infer that there is MUCH more to you than the camera/editor/producers found to promote. Good luck to you, and taking the high road, I have learned, is always right no matter how badly one wants to slam someone else.
I like you Zagros. I think your uncle was right on with his assessments of the women. You should listen to him more. Teal seemed like a phoney, loose, money hungry gold digger.
Honestly, the fact that you brought your mother to see the girls was a little weird. I understand your family is important to you. My family is important to me but I didn't let my mom pick my man. I put my big girl panties on and did it myself. Ultimately, she is marrying you. You have to be happy with her.
As for what happened with Teal, you deserved that. We may not know the "whole" story but you broke the rules. She did too. Of course the man always blames the woman if the sex is bad....
To the viewer, who says that dating or marriage is easy or more stable with someone of your own culture? Love should be that, just love. There are ways around peoples culture and religious beliefs. When two people love one another they will do what ever in order to make it work. My husband and I are living proof to this. It all depends on the individuals, as seen on the program. Zagros's mother was willing to accept Whitney, now she is not from her country but she was willing to have her son date her. So, Zagros you will have to find a happy medium, someone that you find appealing and that your mother agrees with. This can be done and I'm sure it will happen for you. Good luck!
Dude you are the man and the fact that you don't kiss & tell is great! The right girl is around however you need to follow your heart, not moms. peace
Obviously, he doesn't want a girl from his own culture.
He's running away from that as fast as he can.
This was by far the most entertaining episode I have ever seen of this show. The guy Zagros is something else. He brought his entire family! That just seems so Hollywood. He seems like the type of guy who would never ever in a million years use a service like Patti's. So it all just didn't make sense. Also why did he get 90% of the show? It supposed to be 50/50 with him and the other Yri.
He made a bad choice in Teal. He should have gone with his mummys choice. He probobly doesnt want to get married even though mummy wants him to. Teal didn't seem like she had very much class at all. I wonder why he kept saying at the end that she was a classy girl. She was so obviously not classy.
How could she talk about having sex with him when she knew even her mum and dad would watch. And the part that is most disturbing for me was when she said she got dumped because he wouldnt buy her jewlery and give her money. They just met! I think she knew he really was not interested in her for a long term relationship and was being sexual with him to win him over that way. He just seems like he is too wise to fall into any traps. Also he seems to look older then 30.
Very very entertaining episode. I hope they bring Zagros back for the third season. This was hysterical!
My mom and I just finished watching this episode and we think Zagros really has the hots for Patti!!
It was completely obvious that Teal was only willing to go on a date with Zagros for the publicity that the show provided. If you disagree then explain the dress she was wearing during the initial interview. Given Teal's obvious intentions, I in turn question Patti's motives? Is she more concerned with fixing up her clients with legitimate suitors or with entertaining her new found audience? Also, if Patti worked for MY COMPANY, I'd give her a lesson on how to treat our customers. Specifically, I would strongly recommend that she does not spread a customer's sex life on national television. And, if it is completely necessary to spread this confidential information, I would have to ask her to not high five her assistant while doing so. Really Patti? Really? Have some class woman.
Ok, so this sounds like a guy who is 100% focused on himself and only himself. I mean, his blog talks abouthow great he is and how great are the businesses he owns. Complete self-promotion. No wonder he is single, and no surprise that he used a matchmaker to fool a woman into bed. He got what momma wouldn't buy him (sex) and has now gone back to being momma's baby. No woman deserves an arrogant pig, unless she is planning a BBQ. Teal, learn your lesson from this and move on to bigger things and a better man. Think SOUTHERN gentleman, and aim high.
Poor Teal...I had the exact same experience of thinking I found the right guy, and then the sex was horrid. Jump on, jump off..and he thinking he's the greatest all the time. This mama's by won't satisfy a girl from his own culture any better in the sack, but she will stay with him thru her sense of duty. Better downgrade your expectations, Zagros, and find a girl in your own culture that will accept your marriage proposal and grab her. Then you have a woman on the side like so many men that are egotistical like you (she also won't like your bedroom techniques, but needing the money will tolerate it). I can see this happening 100%, and wish I knew this guy personally to confirm this is the future for him. Zagros, you aren't a bad guy at all. You just need to learn some technique and to quit making bedtime all about Zagros.
HILARIOUS! Zagros may have looked like a jerk on the show but he's absolutely right about "creativity, inventiveness" etc...Also, he has Patti's number-great TV, but who could stand the woman in real life? Teal was NOT there for Z, but to further her "modeling" aspirations. Z needs to listen to his mother-her "yes" and "no" choices were correct.
Zagros, You are a hottie.(built for speed not comfort lol... Why are girls like me attracked to alpha males. When I get one of you I get treated like yesterdays garbage after a few months. But the ride was awesome until I get left at the curb. I always get the mamma's boys and then she becomes my best friend... Then I'm left in a odd situation when things don't work. Too funny life is a "crazy train". I honestly have tried to date the "nice guys" and they just don't do it for me.(it makes me think of kissing my brother...yuck). I like "HARD TO HANDLE AND EASY TO LOVE STRONG MEN". Your hot and I like your sense of humor.........
Hmmm...I live in the DFW Metroplex and I have NEVER heard of this man or any of his businesses.
We don't CARE what your side of the story is about Teal. You both BROKE the club's rules. Bottom line. Made for great TV, though, didn't it?
If Zargos did not want the possibility that the entire country would know he would sleep with a girl on the first date - duh, don't do it! He was just thinking about getting some and later promoting his companies. GROSS!!!!
I disagree that Teal had sex with Zagros for what she would "get." It appeared to me that she felt obligated by all the things Zagros was doing for her and promising her. She was so devastated when she told Patti how horrible it was I thought we were going to hear that Zagros forced her. She was clearly too young and insecure to cope with Zagros and his power drive antics. She's an adult so she has to take responsibility but really, no woman is that upset by just lousy sex. It had to have hurt her in more ways than wasting her time. Zagros is a disgrace.
Zagros what is the real reason you went on this show? You are tall, dark, handsome, and succesful and you do not need a match maker. It seems clear you were more interested in plugging your business Stazzle then anything else. Smart but not the point of the show.
It seems clear to me that there is much more to this story then what was shown. Why would you protect a girl who asked you to 'spoil' her???? It was clear that she was attracted to you but that her stripper/prostitute mentality kicked in and she wanted to take money from you. When you told her 'No' to spoiling her with gifts/money she had a temper tantrum and just wanted to ruin your name on national television.
In a way I admire you 'taking the high road' but I think you really should fess up and tell everyone what really happened. She got mad because you wouldnt be her Sugar Daddy diddnt she????
Patti is smart as they come. She should have picked up the fact that Zagros is full of crap. He is not specific about his so called successful businesses. I am sure that he may not be all that wealthy. Here in Las Vegas we see phonies like this all the time...all show and no go. Teal is better off without this guy. I see girls like Teal all of the time and at least she is honest about it. She is looking for some sugar daddies willing to give her money for shopping, etc. Patti should be a little more picky about the girls she is selecting for these wealthy guys.
Well I dont get why someone that has money cant find love. I work my butt off everyday making making Oil, and I am proud to say I can hold my own. You have to get that most of these women are gold diggers, ya need to find someone with less high maientence and can hold there own. ps I can operate any machine you have. The Army taught me well.
Zagros....you look just like my ex. Yummy :p I am so hot and bothered right now by just looking at your picture.....*pant pant pant* But unfortunately like my ex, you are just the same....all about you and how much you can achieve before you die....and that includes how hot of a trophy wife you can get.....I think Teal was honestly feeling connected to you (of course with a small pick ax over her shoulder because no doubt she noticed your deep pockets) but then got pushed into bed and lost her expectations of what her relationship with you would really be like.......It's ok you're still hot
Hi Zagros, I am a persian girl from your culture.I know guys like you very well. Maybe you can full other people but not me.You knew from the start 100% faghat mikhasti bazi kooni.Manoo boyfriendam ba ham shoto negah kardim. We laughed a lot.Hala chera paye khahareto vasat keshidi??????Khodet miomadi ya khodi neshoon midadi mirafti????Ajabbbbb............
I know someone VERY well who dated Teal a long time ago. He is shocked that she chose to publicly humiliate herself like this and is embarassed he ever knew her.
Things happen for a reason. Teal keep running as far & fast as you can. Money isn't everything. Mamma will always come first.
