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 www.goodnessgraciousclub.com.

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 www.goodnessgraciousclub.com

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: Larry Birkhead & Melyssa Ford

Find out what Patti really thought about sexy Melyssa and shy guy Larry's dates.

This week I got to meet one of the sweetest guys in the world, Larry Birkhead: the boy from Kentucky. There’s just one problem: he hasn’t dated in like a decade. This guy needs practice. I mean, he’s drop dead gorgeous and he can’t do anything. I can send him out into the world and the world of a mixer and a date, but he could botch it. Candace and I will give him some mock dating experience and I will pick his date for him. The first time he’ll meet her will be when they go out for the first time. No chance for him to get nervous, and more importantly, no time for the girl to look him up and see who he is. He can stand on his own two feet and just be himself, not Anna Nicole’s ex.

My other client this week is drop dead gorgeous: Melyssa Ford. She’s the star of Blood Sweat and Heels, she used to be in a bunch of music videos, and she was nicknamed the "Video Vixen". I know it’s hard to turn off the beauty and the booty, so I bring her to doctor Pat Allen. Doctor Pat and I have worked together for years. Doctor Pat told Melyssa that she should be leading with her brain. Melyssa can be sexy no matter what: but can she look for the guy who’s interested in what she has to say, not what she looks like?

So I’m doing something new: I get Candace and David to bring a bunch of good appropriate men and women to the mixer. I just want a handful of guys for Melyssa, and a handful of girls for Larry. I introduce the best ones to Melyssa for her to choose from, and I’ll pick the best girl to set up Larry with on a blind date. Melyssa picks Jay. Jay listened to the conversation, and remembered Melyssa liked bowling and cigars. And he took her on a perfect, fun, get-to-know-you date. Meanwhile, Larry met up with his date at Universal Studios. He had a private tour set up, and he and Michelle met for the first time. They had a blast. She knew who he was, but they got past that and they got to know each other. And he took her for dinner and even got a kiss at the end.

So in the end, I’m so happy that both Larry and Melyssa got to learn something. Larry got to know he can be himself and there’s no need to be shy, and she knows (Melyssa) that there are guys out there who can look past her booty and see the great girl underneath.
