Full transcript after the jump

So this week I've got two motivational, helpful, spiritual people. One is Steve G. Jones and the other is Gary Cox. Steve is a well-known hypnotherapist, and Gary is a motivational speaker.

Both guys want their soulmate. They're in their forties. Gary wants to get married and have children, while Steve has been married and just really wants his soulmate. He doesn't need to get married again. It's going to be in interesting week. Steve is the guy who dates down. He dates the waitresses and the hairdressers, and he's getting his doctorate so she shouldn't be dating that at all. And Gary although he didn't really talk to Destin and Rachel about being Christian, he's all born-again on me. I don't really do Christian dating. I'm going to see if I can practice this, and we'll see what happens.

Recruiting session was very interesting. A lot of women for Steve, educated, over 40, in shape, really looking for their soulmate, would move to Savannah, Georgia, where he's from if they hit it off. A lot of them travel. A lot of them are on the open road. They get his lifestyle. Really good fit, he had a lot to choose from. Gary not so much about four or five showed up.

Mixer was very interesting. The girl that we thought was the most conservative who showed up turned out to be the most out there. I mean the boob-alicious. Jennier shows up and she basically wears Jessica Simpson’s dresses from two years ago with that tatas out there to china and she's all flirty myrty. And at first Gary's like, "well she’s too over the top for me." And I'm like, "Did you not ask me for Jessica Simpson, born again. That's that girl." So he kind of realized in the end, yeah I'm right, and that was probably the best pick for him. And after several mini-dates he said, “OK this is the one I’m going to go with.” And that was fine I sealed that deal.

But then had so many women to choose from, I was kind of surprised he picked a redhead. Destin's choice, which was a little odd, because I don't usually let redheads come to the mixers. But I gotta go with the client. He chose Sally

On their date, Sally and him went surfing. Not my usual date. Neither one had tried that before. It's kind of cold in the water. They had to wear wetsuits. But in walks in Alex, the fun, 23-year old, hot surf instructor that Sally can't take her eyes off of, and there goes Steve. And she was rude. Very dogmatic. Found out about his five-year daughter being given up 19 years ago and was kind of pissed off about that. Who the f—k is she? She's got red hair. She shouldn’t be talking, let alone getting a date.

Making a Match: Larry Birkhead & Melyssa Ford

Find out what Patti really thought about sexy Melyssa and shy guy Larry's dates.

This week I got to meet one of the sweetest guys in the world, Larry Birkhead: the boy from Kentucky. There’s just one problem: he hasn’t dated in like a decade. This guy needs practice. I mean, he’s drop dead gorgeous and he can’t do anything. I can send him out into the world and the world of a mixer and a date, but he could botch it. Candace and I will give him some mock dating experience and I will pick his date for him. The first time he’ll meet her will be when they go out for the first time. No chance for him to get nervous, and more importantly, no time for the girl to look him up and see who he is. He can stand on his own two feet and just be himself, not Anna Nicole’s ex.

My other client this week is drop dead gorgeous: Melyssa Ford. She’s the star of Blood Sweat and Heels, she used to be in a bunch of music videos, and she was nicknamed the "Video Vixen". I know it’s hard to turn off the beauty and the booty, so I bring her to doctor Pat Allen. Doctor Pat and I have worked together for years. Doctor Pat told Melyssa that she should be leading with her brain. Melyssa can be sexy no matter what: but can she look for the guy who’s interested in what she has to say, not what she looks like?

So I’m doing something new: I get Candace and David to bring a bunch of good appropriate men and women to the mixer. I just want a handful of guys for Melyssa, and a handful of girls for Larry. I introduce the best ones to Melyssa for her to choose from, and I’ll pick the best girl to set up Larry with on a blind date. Melyssa picks Jay. Jay listened to the conversation, and remembered Melyssa liked bowling and cigars. And he took her on a perfect, fun, get-to-know-you date. Meanwhile, Larry met up with his date at Universal Studios. He had a private tour set up, and he and Michelle met for the first time. They had a blast. She knew who he was, but they got past that and they got to know each other. And he took her for dinner and even got a kiss at the end.

So in the end, I’m so happy that both Larry and Melyssa got to learn something. Larry got to know he can be himself and there’s no need to be shy, and she knows (Melyssa) that there are guys out there who can look past her booty and see the great girl underneath.
