Surf's Down

Patti explains why surfing is a bad date and how a redhead was invited to a mixer.

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: Serving Up Love with Sheree

Patti dishes on working with former Atlanta Housewife Shereé Whitfield and setting up tennis pro Sam Querrey. 

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 Kenya Moore and 'Chili' Thomas to Thicker Than Water's Brooklyn Tankard.

Each week, we're asking Patti to weigh in on every episode in her exclusive vlog. She'll tackle everything from picking Mr.Right to psychic readings to one Housewives bossy ways.  

This week, she talks about finding a man for gorgeous former Atlanta Housewife Shereé Whitfield, teaching pro tennis player Sam Querrey a lesson in love. Check out the latest episode vlog below and watch past episodes here.

The week was great; Shereé Whitfield came to visit, formerly of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. I was really surprised that she wasn’t as bossy as she was on the show.

Shereé seemed closed off to new love and I wasn’t sure why, it’s been awhile since she was in a relationship.

I also introduced her to James Van Praagh one of the most famous psychics and mediums in history and gave her a real clarifying reading.

My other client this week was adorable Sam Querrey. Sam is a tennis pro, he’s like 30th in the world, he’s like the guy next door and he wants true love.    

I start recruiting, when it comes to the women for Sam, I’m looking for a beautiful girl, who’s kind of flexible with her schedule, independent, and can keep herself busy.

 

And Shereé. . .well, let’s just say Shereé can be bossy.

And Shereé. . .well, let’s just say Shereé can be bossy. So I need more of an alpha man for her. And the twist this week is that every person brought in something that represented them. I think that was David’s idea.

I’ve been wanting to do the mixer on a boat for quite some time. I even got to blast an air horn on the boat. So we set up a power dating mixer.

At the end Shereé chose handsome Terry, he’s hot, successful; he even has ties to Atlanta which is really good so he can visit her.

Meanwhile, Sam chose the adorable Kylie she is a ballerina, totally into the home values thing. Sam takes Kylie out for an afternoon of archery and while I was nervous at first, it sounded kind of corny; they actually had a really good time. They went to the Melting Pot, one of my favorite places of dinner and they love each other and are hanging out.

Terry takes Shereé to Paint N’ Sit where you can actually drink wine and paint pictures, it’s kind of a cozy intimate romantic thing. I think what happened with Shereé is that she really didn’t give him a chance and the truth is that Terry is a really good guy and she needed to open up. He dressed great; this is her issue not Terry’s.

All in all, pretty good week.
