Don't Kiss and Tell

Hear from Millionaire Zagros about his experience on Matchmaker!

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.

My family is the best. Bless their hearts - it was like pulling teeth to get them to do the show with me. My mom was the most nervous of all before the shoot and just as she was getting comfortable in front of the camera, her role in helping me find a soul mate was over. They did great and looked like a million bucks. I’m so proud.

Teal. Hmmm. It really isn’t easy to say this because I want so badly to share with you what really happened between Teal and I, but I am taking the high road. Teal is best left as a closed chapter. I don’t like to kiss and tell and the discussion of sex that was so brazenly brought up by Teal is like school on Saturday: There’s no class.

I have nothing but love for you guys. Bravoinians, thanks for letting me spend an hour in your living room with you. Hopefully you had a couple of good laughs at the antics and zaniness you went through with me. The experience was unforgettable and good or bad, I wouldn’t change it for the world. You can keep up with me on Facebook, Twitter, or on my homepage ZagrosBigvand.com. Let’s keep in touch friends!

Making a Match: Brooklyn Chooses Sizzle vs. Substance

Patti dishes on what it was like working with Thicker Than Water Brooklyn Tankard and getting a New York player to start take matchmaking seriously.

Season 8 of The Millionaire Matchmaker is one of the most dramatic ever. This time around, Patti Stanger is helping plenty of unlikely clients find love, from RHOA’s Kenya Moore and Sheree Whitfield to rap royalty Romeo Miller.

Each week, we're asking Patti to weigh in on every episode in her exclusive vlog. She'll tackle the good (Brooklyn on French kissing), the bad (Amit’s beard)—and the hilarious (Patti’s New York accent!).

This week, she talks about setting up Thicker Than Water's Brooklyn Tankard and teaching this Long Island divorcee to stop looking for love at the clubs. Check out the latest episode vlog below and watch past episodes here.

Brooklyn Tankard the star of Thicker Than Water is up this week. Brooklyn is pretty funny and exciting, she’s a little bit off though. She’s basically a single mom with a daughter and you know she doesn’t get to meet quality men, she really hasn’t found her equal.

My other client this week is liquor entrepreneur Amit Ram, he’s from Long Island. He’s got this awful f---ing beard on his face. Girls in the clubs like his beard, yeah, yeah in 1959 they do, not in 2015.

For those two we chose to do a Hot Seat Mixer. That means Brooklyn and Amit interview potential dates and if they don’t like someone they can kick them out of the hot seat, but if they like them, they get to stay. So it’s kind of like musical chairs.

Brooklyn goes through a bunch of guys and some of them are really awesome. I personally love Jason, he’s tall, he’s older, he’s been divorced, he has kids, he’s a very solid guy. But Brooklyn’s got her eye on Michael who's a bit younger, really hot, super sexy, has sort of a football player look -- and she can’t take her eyes off of him. Instead of going for the substance she’s going for the sizzle.

Meanwhile, Amit chose a great little petite girl named Daniella, she’s also a gym rat like him, they have a lot in common. He’s taken her on an interesting date, free-running training, you know when run and when you jump and you climb, it’s kind of extreme dating. They’re both pretty bad at it, but they love working out so they have a really great time. Then he takes her to a nice dinner at a classy place, Miceli’s.

I just hope Brooklyn took some of my lessons with her back to Nashville, because she needs a lot of work.

Patti Stanger

Brooklyn had a really nice date with Michael, they went peddle boating. But Michael didn’t ask much about Brooklyn, and this didn’t really work out for her because she likes to be the center of attention. So I don’t think that she chose well. I think it should’ve been Jason, which is the one I wanted her to go out with all along. I just hope she took some of my lessons with her back to Nashville because she needs a lot of work. I bet she'll be back again next time.
