Episode 5: Bravotv.com's Associate Editor ponders Madison's spirit animal and the proper outfit for paddle-boarding.

This week it was all about the gays on Matchmaker. It was the first ever all gay mixer. People were picking up strays, taking off shirts, and attempting to explain their glitter tattoos left and right. And Madison from Million Dollar Listing is there!

Don’t: Be fooled by pink cars
Eric's gay, Patti -- its not going to work. Though I would enter into a sexless partnership to live in that house and drive that pepto-colored car with him. I thought you had to be a Mary Kay lady to get wheels like that.

Don't: Be a lazy lion
Even someone as ridiculously handsome as Madison, needs to work the angles. I'm not sure why lions are the laziest. Did Patti see The Lion King? Those lions were all very ambitious and organized, or wait, I guess Nala did have to do some of the work to get Simba to commit. Personally when I think lazy I imagine pandas, but I Madison's hair does make it appropriate. Either way he can't just be sitting around on Malibu beaches waiting for the wildebeasts to come ot him or something like that. I'll let Patti explain.

Do: Clear your need for strays with mostly melted candles
Having a hard time moving past shallow people because you don't want to commit? Call in a therapist with some great vibey candles to give you the straight talk. She's no Pat Allen, but this week Dr. Nikki's got some gems of advice among some gilded tchotchkes.

Don't: Be a ginger
Patti’s said it once, and she'll say it again. She doesn't love a ginger. A red/blonde mix still has red in it. Dye it. Also cut your hair. Patti's really not pulling any punches with people's follicles this season, or with people's butter-faces.

Do: Woo people with tales about your dog's face
Unlike the underwear model with a butter face, some of the men in this club know how to pick someone with a good face -- like Chris. Not only did Chris pick up on Eric's adorable face, he can also really get to heart of a dog just by looking at his face. I'm not sure if this was the move away from superficial that Dr. Nikki wanted, but this is exactly how Chris picked his dog.

"I picked the dog based on the face and how she turned her head and she just connected with me right away."

We should probably just do the same thing with people, right? That's why Eric and Chris ended up working out so well.

Do: Wear sunscreen
OK, OK, so maybe this isn't a dating tip, so much as it's a general life piece of advice, but wear sunscreen. Plus then, like Madison and Charlie, you can rub your date down with it. And that worked out for those two so well. Their date was adorable. Charlie's hair was still working it's Patti (and me!) approved look. They had all sorts of things in common. Charlie did an amazing little dance.

Chris and Eric didn't have to wear sunscreen because they had on ten-gallon hats, which also worked out for them. Keep it protected people. That's the secret to a hot date -- non-sundamaged skin.

Next week things get a little wack-a-doo at the club. Grease that poll and stay ready!

Making a Match: Speidi, Bad Guys & Playboy

Patti talks working with Speidi to break Stephanie Pratt of her bad boy habit and setting up former Playmate Kari Whitman.

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 Perez Hilton and 'Chili' Thomas to Real Miami Housewife Marysol Patton.

Each week, we're asking Patti to weigh in on every episode in her exclusive vlog. She'll tackle the good (a real-life 'Ghost' moment), the bad (boys in Stephanie Pratt's case)—and the hilarious (a man pole dancing for Speidi!). 

This week, she talks about setting up Stephanie Pratt, Playboy Bunnny Kari Whitman and more. Check out the latest episode vlog below and watch past episodes here.

So this week I have Stephanie Pratt, Spencer Pratt's sister! She is drop dead smokin' gorgeous. The problem is she dates bad boys. Bad boys who have no bank accounts. Bad boys who won't even take her to dinner! So, I decide that Speidi needs to come in and help me with recruiting. I mean I need Spencer. He is the voice of reason. And you know what I notice that Spencer and Heidi are so madly in love. 

I also decided to fix up Kari Whitman this week. She used to be engaged to Don Johnson among many other stars. Kari needs to cleanse bad habits and old habits that were clinging to her exes. Kari needs a little bit of loosening up because she's like a stiff girl. She's got like a stick up her ass. She's all hoity-toity. Like, the botox don't move, neither do the tits. 

She's got like a stick up her ass. She's all hoity-toity. Like, the botox don't move, neither do the tits.

If there's anyone literally who can help Kari detox, it's Tracy Anderson. She's like a mad scientist that can help get your inner balance. Before we meet the guys, Tracy gives us a whole new exercise routine, which by the way I've been using -- and do you see that? That's from Tracy Anderson. Now, we're recruiting for Kari. So these guys come in. They're drop dead gorgeous and they're all dress in workout gear. 
 
So we decide, my team and I, that we're going to do a dinner mixer. Stephanie is leaning toward Trevor the whole time. But we also like Dutch, who's a really great guy. So it's Dutch or Trevor, Dutch or Trevor. We're not sure yet, but those two are in it to win it. Kari totally likes Kevin and Emilio. So I was really, really shocked because Kari chose Emilio. I wasn't sure she was going to go that way. But then Stephanie chose what I wanted, which was Trevor!
Trevor and Stephanie had this amazing dinner at Beach Cafe on the Santa Monica Pier. They won prizes on the pier, they went on the Ferris wheel. And they kissed!
 
Kari met Emilio at the pottery shop where they had a lesson of getting dirty with clay. It was a real Ghost moment, very sexy. They went for oysters and Emilio created a special drink for her and they shared a sexy kiss. That was a really romantic date, by the way.
 
Really proud of my clients this week and as always, they nailed it! These two found love, it was awesome this week. Best week yet!
