When I was first approached last spring to be on The Millionaire Matchmaker, I immediately thought, "No way in hell." After careful consideration, I figured it was worth a shot and would also be a fun way to get my website, TheLuxurySpot.com, out there a little more. What I didn't expect was how the interactions with Patti would go down.
Filming was fun and definitely left some lasting memories, and it's too bad that the fun, light-hearted stuff didn't actually make it into the episode. I'm hardly that serious -- in fact, if you read my website at all you'll notice that most of the stuff I write is downright silly or even kind of shocking. I was disappointed that Patti started the show by introducing me as an "heiress" that comes from the Dannon fortune. The truth is, whatever I have, I've made for myself. I have no ties to Dannon at this point in my life, and I will continue to earn my own money the old fashioned way -- by working hard.
The episode definitely paints me in a snobbish light, and that's a shame because anyone that really knows me would probably tell you the exact opposite story. I'm a 26 year old single mother living in Manhattan alone. Any place I go, anything I experience or own, I've gotten for myself. I have complete, total, and utter appreciation for the people I love, the experiences I have, and all the blessings in my life.
Hey! I wish I could have seen the rest of the episode. I was suprised to see a girl on the show for one thing, I thought it was always millionaire-men, lol. I was also suprised to see a fellow Jew from Seattle in the 'interviews' in the beginning, and I'm so curious if he "made it" to the mixer.
I think you looked like a cutie Bryce, so don't worry, I'm sure you'll find the one :) However, just because someone is in their 20's does NOT mean they do not know how to be a family man, I'd beg to differ.
Anyway, my flight was landing as the episode was starting, so does anyone know where I can see the rest of it?
Manners: to help other's feel comfortable, (even at the expense of oneself a little). There was no moment where Bryce seemed genuinely interested in anyone for their unique traits on any level. Felt sorry for those who tried to break through- embarrassing to see such dismissive disregard.. but if this is a defense then I wish her well in opening up & shedding the rigid shell.
You were extremely rude to Keith on the show and now here again in your blog. You really need to get over yourself.
It's very annoying when people act funny on camera and then blame editing. Cameras don't lie. I do commend you for working hard and gaining success but you did not get their by yourself. Fortune, God and the Universe were on your side. Humility will take you everywhere, Miss Bryce. Other people could find fault in you as easily as you do others. You seem to be impossible to please, hence you are alone. The 'chastity' thing also seemed to bother me. You are a single mom and were not married to your kids father. Live a little, stop being so stiff and so judgemental. Life is too short. All the best!
This was my first time ever watching this show. Sweetheart you were just rude to Keith. Did you remember you made a choice no one forced you. You didn't try which is fine but why were you there.
If this blog was to shine a different light than we saw on the episode you totally missed it. But everyone can decide on how they want to be showned. Don't blame editing honey, something tells me this is you.
But you're right you can just choose to be alone. But you maynot want to be on a match making show again.
I think you needed to be more clear with Patty that you're only attracted to older guys. Patty also needed to listen and pay better attention. You didn't feel like she was paying attention, and she wasn't, but you should have asserted your type more strongly.
Bryce, I enjoyed reading your blog. I did think there was more to you than displayed in the show. I could tell by the light in your eyes when you did smile, which was not often enough! I can tell you are a bit shy until you get to know someone. The shy part is not obvious to others and they tend to think you are arrogant and completely full of yourself. Actually your goal is to appear confident and in control and hide your insecurities.
You need to learn that it is better to be open and allow your flaws show. People can accept others flaws as honesty and being human but when we try to be something we are not we are lying to ourselves and others. Nobody likes a liar!
MEN- Michael? The guy that Shauna ran from saying he was too old. He was HOT and a bit of a Clooney look a like! He might be a good match.
OR JULIEN from season 1. He is also a self made millionaire so you know he wouldn't be after your money and he would be someone that you would be able to have respect for. He seems more reserved and doubt he would move too fast for you. AND it doesn't appear that he tans!! I believe you two would make a great match!! ;) Check him out!
Despite your chilly vibe on the show, you seem like a caring girl and would be quite a hottie if you learned to smile and flirt a bit.
I can't believe you were so cold to Keith...sure he could have made a more witty comeback to your career revelations, but I (and no guy) would have left it alone...that was the perfect moment to share a laugh and at least give it a chance to see if the two of you might have some chemistry.
