Goodness Gracious

Millionaire Chris explains his children's book series and shares more abou his date with Yvonne!

This is definitely the first time I have ever been set up on a date through a reality show. I have had many friends and family set me up with eligible women over the past few years and had little luck as I have been too busy launching my own brand of children’s books the Goodness Gracious Club and going live with our website

In first meeting with Patti I had to really rely on my considerate up bringing as she found many things to criticize me for right out of the gates!

Being raised by my mother and grandmother who emphasized being polite to others and to always be a gentleman with ladies I was inspired to write my first children’s book Good Manners Are Fun. In first meeting with Patti I had to really rely on my considerate up bringing as she found many things to criticize me for right out of the gates! Her primary gripe was that I date women younger than me. Despite giving her legitimate reasons why I do so, Patti insisted on sending me to a relationship counselor. Always being the team player as I’ve written about in my second book Good Sportsmanship Is Fun , I chose to play along and not question her judgment.

When I got to there the counselor asked me to consider dating Yvonne without focusing on her age. Yvonne is a wonderful, athletic and beautiful young lady who to this day I still don’t know her age and don’t rightly care. We had a very nice time on our date. We went surfing and the waves were much bigger than I had anticipated, especially for a surf lesson. Fortunately, we were able to play on the inside section and Yvonne caught a couple of waves and stood up every time! Afterwards we proceeded to dinner without even a shower first which most women would certainly not agree to especially not when it would be filmed on camera for millions to see later. The dinner date was an incredibly surreal experience. Trying to be natural and enjoy another’s company while an entire crew is hovering around you is challenging, but I have to say the film crew was amazing. Everybody was super polite and professional and an overall treat to work with. Yvonne and I also became friends yet there wasn’t a love connection.

I found Patti to be very sweet and genuine. Although she may be tough and critical on the outside, she really is very warm and nurturing within.

My favorite part of the entire show was when the crew captured a day in my life. They filmed me reading the Good Manners Are Fun and Good Sportsmanship Is Fun books to a group of young children. Teaching kids good manners and sportsmanship and how important these values are in everyday life is how I already market my Goodness Gracious Club brand; “one school at a time.” A sort of aka Mister Manners if you will but now I am bringing in professionals from all walks of life; doctors, fireman, policeman, beauty pageant queens and all types of everyday heroes that children look up to and therefore the kids will remember these important lessons even more. For further details on how to arrange a visit or to find out if I’m coming to a school near you please visit my website

Overall the filming of the show was a very positive experience for me and I found Patti to be very sweet and genuine. Although she may be tough and critical on the outside, she really is very warm and nurturing within. I am very grateful for this opportunity and look forward to soon meeting the right woman, my soul mate and best friend, getting married, having a healthy family and living happily ever after. The End.

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.
