Justin: Wild Ride!

Justin describes his 'Matchmaker' experience! "Creativity is what I had to rely on when it came to interacting with Patti."

 

What an experience! First of all, wow, I never knew how many people watch this show, especially, women! I’ve received texts, e-mails, and phone calls from people who I haven’t seen in years. If I had known that this was the kind of response I would get from women, I would have gone on this show a long time ago…just kidding! I would love for all of you to check out my website at www.justinshenkarow.com because it has all of my recent credits, bio, and reels; including all of my press. Plus, I’m putting up a live podcast of a review of my Millionaire Matchmaker date on my website. You can also add me as a friend on facebook at www.facebook.com/justinshenkarowfans or follow me on twitter at www.twitter.com/justinshenkarow I love hearing from my fans, it’s awesome! Acting is my passion, and I have been acting since I was six and continue to be thrilled to be a working actor in film and television as well as voice-overs.

With my background as a Stanford grad, living in Paris and also recently studying for my MBA, I believe that I bring a unique perspective to acting roles. Acting is all about bringing creativity and making choices for a character, and I believe that I do that very well. I’ve also invested in real estate since I was young and have a fantastic real estate company called PositiveCashFlowNetwork.com. Check it out when you get a chance. It is set up for individuals interested in buying and selling real estate which gives cash flow from the moment you buy it. It is fantastic for anyone looking to invest in real estate.

Creativity is what I had to rely on when it came to interacting with Patti; yea, she’s definitely a character. She appears to be an expert in her field so I’m glad that she guided me even though I disagreed with some of her techniques. I find it interesting that she critiqued my dress attire since I’m an actor, and I’ve got a great sense of style. Sorry, but I don’t think putting on a hardhat and overalls is my idea of being masculine. Thanks Patti, you’re a sweetie!

There were a lot of interesting women to meet and the date on the boat was fun.  It was hilarious trying to have the crew follow us with their cameras in their small speedboat as we sailed along. Overall, I had fun shooting the episode, and I thank Bravo and the entire crew for being so helpful, kind and professional in every sense. Happy 2010 to everyone!

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.
