I used to be a big fan of the show, and continued watching this season. But one episode really bothered me. It was the episode with the gay man who was "too picky" and the immature Brooklyn dude. (I hated that guy for bringing his friends! If I was Kim I would have told him off and left!)
But I just didn't understand why you went above and beyond to prove to one of your clients that looks aren't everything, and even had a makeup artist make him ugly so he would know how it felt. But then...when you were casting women, you called them ugly to their face? That seems extremely hypocritical to me. I didn't really get "Patti's moral of the story". Don't be picky when you're trying to date, but if you're not hot than you're out of luck?" It just seemed very confusing. And I could only imagine how awful that made those girls feel. For all you know, they spent a lot of time getting ready.
Now I'm not a sensitive woman and I'm pretty easy on the eyes, but I didn't always look this way. And I really thought your words went past brutal honesty. They were cruel. And THEN after you humiliated them to their face, you went on camera and said "those first two girls were so ugly..." Like good GOD woman. Now they have to live that down, all their families and friends are going to see that. I feel like you should empower women by building them up, not by tearing them apart..and if that's your style...then don't preach to your clients that "looks aren't everything" if you CLEARLY don't feel that way.
This is a reality show and the reality is that obviously quite a fe millionaires do not follow Patti's advice. They seem to think that the rules are not there for them to follow. Although we may all want a happy ending, this is the reality of what is happening. Patti has a high success rate based on those who choose to follow her advice and rules. If they don't, well that is what we see this season. Go Patti!!!!! I think more people should listen to you. The truth about ourselves is often hard to hear. Thanks for having the guts to say it like it is!!
The poker player already has a man! She is obviously hung up on the make-up/body guard man. She even told him he was hot in front of Ray. What a loser!!!!!!
I would take Ray any day. What a nice man!!!!! Send him my way!!!!!!! There are so many jerks out there I was beginning to stop looking.
I have never watched the whole show...just bits and pieces.. I really don't understand how someone as unattractive as you can insult other people about their looks. You are hard to look at because you are soooo ugly, which is why I can't watch the whole show..Look in the mirror sweetheart.
Brilliantly said, Panneohara, brilliantly said. I may be soon to follow unless I start seeing some success stories, and a kinder, gentler matchmaker herself.
If someone says they are worth approximately 3 million dollars, does that mean in real estate which is floundering and people keep refinancing or in liquid. Today's "millionaire" is not the same. Do you check their credit scores? Fill out forms on them?
A true millionaire in NYC would not go on a TV show, and this is not supposed to be a dating show re: Albie and Chris.
It takes the creditability out of the show.
Your parents seem lovely.
HELLO??? We understand that concept...people come to her for help, that if they were on the right track they wouldn't need her help, and that they don't follow all her rules and revert back to their incompetent dating selves. If that's the case, then let's not waste everyone's time in watching THEM on TV... SHOW US THE WINNERS!!! NOT THE LOSERS....let's see some matches made in heaven by Patti Stanger. That would also make for some good TV.
Patti....I LOVE LOVE LOVE YOU!!! I have been a faithful viewer since day 1. HOWEVER, when the hell did you become such a bitch to your employees? Is that why Chelsea is gone?? The way you were yelling at Andrea was soo very rude and disrespectful I can see you saying crude things to the skanky gold diggers BUT your own staff?? C'mon...that's not a very professional way to do business.
Patty, I just watched a re-reun from 11/04/2009 Re: Bill & Heidi, are they still dating? I really hope to hear an answer soon. I love your show. And thank-fully I have my perfect match (even if he's not a millionaire) He's wonderfutl for me & to me. I'm glad there are people like you out there. Roxy
Lighten up, Patti, don't fret. You are only in New York for one season. I am assuming that being in NYC is what is making you so wound up and mean this season. And could you please match some winners? I thought you had a high success rate. Your show is becoming less a reality show of your Matchmaking business and more of a bad comedy.
Hey Patti! Watched your show Sunday, the lady that is the poker player, she was a player to begin with. I'll take Ray!!! He can plan the entire date and treat me like a queen. I am so sick of meeting men, and I end up taking care of them. OMG it drives me nuts, and believe me I realize I did it and then just kick myself!!!
Has Patti EVER had a match that worked out, (including her own?) In the into she states she has "an exteremly high success rate." Her short engagement had her waving her ring finger at every client to prove her "success." I've quit watching the show as I'm annoyed by her undeserved superior attitude, her constant need to refer to the penis, and her general nastiness. Is she still doing her trademark finger down the throat gag? You might redo your idiotic "team" while you're critisizing everyone else.
Hi I am a young physician from puerto Rico 6 foot 2inches 240 pounds like exercise smart girls professional, over 25 so if had somthing I would like to work in USA
Kate Gosselin...Patti, PLEASE consider helping Kate find a man! I would LOVE to see how you handle her or what advice you give her. I think the episode would be perfect! I saw her cover/article in People magazine where she's showing off her new body and she commented that men aren't finding their way to her. After watching your shows for years now, I could almost create the dialog that you would have with her. Hope you think it over! Oh and by the way, I love your show and you. You speak your mind and tell it like it is. You're a woman of integrity who stands by her morals and only asks that your clients stick by the rules of the club. Thanks for a fun show!
It's great that you went to NYC this season because NYC and your personality go together like peanut butter and jelly. . . So maybe you'll find someone for yourself over there?
It appears after watching for several seasons that the millionaire singles that are featured every episode have serious issues with how they treat people, they treat them horribly and no matches end up as a result. There have only been a few of the feature singles that actually find a match, the majority don't work out! So why would Patti continue to fix up these rude, condescending jerks to setup with other people?
Those of you who think Patti is rude and offensive are obviously NOT AWARE OF THE CLIENTS that she is dealing with! The ONLY time she gets nasty is when her loser clients refuse to listen and clearly, purposefully break her rules!! These clients come to her, begging for help...and then completely waste her time by reverting back to their old, misguided ways, which is why they are without a partner in the first place! I honestly give Patti credit for not completely going crazy on some of her clients! I couldn't do her job...not without a Louisville Slugger in the closet for use on clients who insist on bringing their "gay husbands" or their "entourage of alcoholic buddies" along with them on their dates...
You are the bomb, Patti! The rich men and women all have their heads stuck up their asses and need to be brought back down to earth. Patti gives it to them...straight, no chaser and that's what they need.
Hi Patty, I watched some of your shows this past week. I have to tell you...please, please, please....help us 40 something women in San Diego and beyond in southern CA!! I personally go throuh phases where I completely stop all dating for 1-2 yrs...then get more into exercise, yoga and feeling my best again and go out with at least one guy for a few months...or so...then the long stretch on purpose. And I don't work with men and i am in school and most of them are very young, too young for me...like 20 something. I never really felt I had to have kids...well I figured if it was meant to be by 39/40 if i was married and wanted kids it would happen. Well, because of the quality of men (I mean lack of good quality men) that I date...I end up frustrated and looking within to figure out how to date the right men who also aren't struggling so much financially!! Ugh..I learn from your shows and I have read your book and every dating, single girl book out there over the years. I am so over it...I am back in college cause I at least need to find a career I am somewhat happy about....I don't have to be married at all. I would just like to find a man in his late 30s, 40s or maybe even early 50s...but I won't settle and won't get married until I meet the right person, hell I won't even get into any relationship going forward until I have changed the type I attract. I also was offering to pay at times...and have stopped that! I am so over poor men who are divorced and/or have kids and I am so last on the list...forget it...i would rather work, live alone, have two dogs and a cat and enjoy my life with good girlfriends than to settle for the LACK of QUALITY men here in SAN DIEGO!!! HELP US HERE!! And if you do...I will work for you...!! Not that you'll ever read this...lol. Anyway...I am down to earth and I cannot stand L.A....was born there and there is a difference in that people in SD aren't actors or wannabe actors. Thank god for that! Everyone in L.A. wants to be an actor or wants to know some actor or has waaaaay too much plastic surgery! Botox...yuck!
O.k...please contact me....teach me and I will work for you! Kim San Diego, CA
I enjoyed your first two seasons and now I have only watched two episodes this season. I enjoyed the Manzo brothers. You treated them with dignity and respect. You didn't talk disgusting and foul. You can tell it straight without being rude,heartless and demeaning. Unfortunately, you treat the women like they are pieces of meat or I should say the prospective dates. I just think you have lost your touch and you seem unhappy and bitter. Bravo needs to cancel this show.
Patty you are awesome.. i would love to come work for you and find the potential suitors for thee folks! I think it would be amazing to be able to work for you.
California women are wannabe actresses, etc., so they will leave work to be at a casting early. NYC women are taught to take care of themselves; to be financially. With this economy, women are afraid to lose their jobs.
Pattie I love your show and realized that there are a lot of us who needs to find love. I live in LA via Palmdale, I was wondering can you help me start the same business in the African America community. We can even join together in the business, I have nothing to do all day. But trust......we in the AA really need help. BTW I love your attitude...and sometimes people need that to set them on the right path. Holla Back
Wow what a stinker of an episode. Outside the Manzo brothers episode, I am getting rather bored with Patty's adventures in New York. Her attitude this season has been awful at best and the lack of class of both the men and women she has had on the show so far leaves a bad taste in your mouth.
Maybe it's time to head to Minnesota......
I agree that sometimes Patti is brutal but she's always truthful and always entertaining. BUT- Patti, bring back the bangs! They looked so great!
As an asian woman I found Sean's opinion surrounding the demeanor of asian women to be uninformed and extremely offensive. I cannot believe he had the nerve to stereotype an entire group of people, especially since his opinion is nothing but that - a stereotype. I am a huge fan of Patti and her show, but seriously, why in the world did this guy get air time? His statements were controversial, provocative, and offensive. Period.
I love Patty. She tells it like it is, and does not sugar coat it. The minute i saw her parents i suspected they were from Boca Raton, FL. Am i right?
Not watching this season... to steal a line from HBO series Rome - "I've finally realized what a wicked old harpy you really are" (Patti)... besides, any friend of Jill Zarin's is no friend of mine...
Just thought I'd tell you that I no longer watch your show. I did catch one episode this season and that was enough for me. I think your attitude stinks to high heaven and you'll definetely never land a man that way.
