Double Dating Scheme

Justin describes his 'Matchmaker' experience!

 

As someone who has never watched The Millionaire Matchmaker before or heard of Patti, I was shocked when she came in the door basically yelling at me to grow up. That being said, I'm happy that I didn't grow up and that she still didn't change my mind. I only want to stay young at heart and make people laugh. I was willing to meet someone through her - however, the girls she choose, as she even admitted on the show, were pretty sub-par. Thus I picked the best ones. Although it was against Patti's will, there was nothing superficial about picking two girls instead of one - actually it was quite the opposite. I believe in choice and fairness in life, and I chose to take to take two girls out and treat them very, very well. Both girls really had a good time and in fact we are all still in touch. Patti was just jealous she didn't think of my double dating scheme first.

Patti should have brought me models - there are certainly enough models in L.A. to go around. But I did enjoy my time with Jennifer and Kate. Kate was annoyed because Patti only wanted to find me a Jewish girl, which is fine, but not fair to Kate.

While I was on the date, spoiling the girls with gifts and simply being a nice guy who is always smiling, all Patti could talk about was the drama. There really wasn't that much drama. In fact, Jennifer and I are still speaking today. Since Patti didn't find me my perfect girl, I suppose I won't be looking for one. I'll just continue shooting my films (one of which I just completed this month, Boy Toy, for my company www.stardustpictures.com) and I'll simply let the chips fall as they may.

I want to thank my friends Ola and Lucy for being a part of the show and presenting the gifts to my dates.

 

Overall, I did have fun on the show and Kevin and I are still friends. I don't think he'll be taking any advice from the millionaire's club's again.

I do believe that somewhere inside Patti is a nice person. I especially liked how Patti made the announcement at the mixer that it was "The Justin Show, starring Justin Levine" - that's such a good idea, which naturally I already thought of. I'm going to start pre-production on that next month!

Best,
Justin

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.

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.
