Work in Progress

Patti explains that both of this week's millionaires still have some work to do in the dating department.

Full transcript after the jump

So this week we've got two millionaires. First is my "MIT," millionaire-in-training. He's 22. Dad has money. He's living with dad, living the big life in Brentwood. He's adorable. He just thinks he's a big shot.

And then we also have Bill, who's like a nerdy Silicon Valley millionaire. He's a little bit older than Skylar. He basically wants the Playboy bunny of his dreams, so I bring Jenny McCarthy in, who's one of my closest friends, and I said, "OK. You gotta teach him how to kiss. You gotta teach him how to hunt. You gotta teach him how to fish. What does he say on a date, because he is clueless. He has got no material."

So she teaches him what to say, gives him her greatest pickup lines yet, and he's ready for the mixer.

But this mixer, this week is completely different. This is the fun mixer of the season. We’'e doing a bikini mixer. Whoo! So we have all the girls show up for recruiting that are hottie patotties, and I'm basically looking at them to see what they're going to look like in their bathing suits. And then we basically head to the pool at the Avalon, which is one of my favorite places in all of L.A.

Sky's all excited because now he gets to see these girls in bikinis. We throw them into the deep end. Skylar's holding court, talking, wheeling, dealing seeing who he wants. But then I noticed Bill wasn't picking anyone. You know I asked Sky who he liked. He knew right off the bat who he liked -- which was Jen. I asked Sky, "Who do you like?" And he said, "Jen." Done, sold, sealed, delivered. It was great. Even though he had to pick two mini-dates, he ended up with Jen. It was cool as a wheel.

Bill on the other hand, not so much. But there was one girl at the mixer who I thought was perfect for him, Tracey, but she was wearing these stiletto tall heels and he doesn't like for anyone overpower him. So I made all the girls throw off their heels and put flip flops on. And all of the sudden he relaxed, and he became the man of the hour. And he picked Tracey, and everything was great. They're going to have this fantastic, fantastic date. At the end of the mixer, they even jumped into the pool. And he took Tracey's hand and jumped in with her and made sure she was all warm and cozy. Where Sky not so much. He jumped in, practically tried to drag me into the pool, and could care less about Jen, his date.

Skylar did just OK. He ended up doing hot yoga. Hot yoga -- that's like in a hundred and something degree temperatures, where you sweat out the toxins. It stinks in there. It's smelly. It's not pretty. Nobody looks ravishing. Not the greatest way to transition to dinner on a date.

But Bill on the other hand pulled out all the bells and whistles. He took her to the Santa Monica pier to play games and on the Ferris wheel, and they had this wonderful dinner. He really romanced his date

Although, Skylar and Jen are still dating, which is kind of weird because it he didn't really pull out the full court press. And Bill kind of lost Tracey in the end because I guess she didn't feel that much chemistry

In the end my you clients did OK, but not perfectly. They still have a lot of work ahead of them.

Making a Match: Brooklyn Chooses Sizzle vs. Substance

Patti dishes on what it was like working with Thicker Than Water Brooklyn Tankard and getting a New York player to start take matchmaking seriously.

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 RHOA’s Kenya Moore and Sheree Whitfield to rap royalty Romeo Miller.

Each week, we're asking Patti to weigh in on every episode in her exclusive vlog. She'll tackle the good (Brooklyn on French kissing), the bad (Amit’s beard)—and the hilarious (Patti’s New York accent!).

This week, she talks about setting up Thicker Than Water's Brooklyn Tankard and teaching this Long Island divorcee to stop looking for love at the clubs. Check out the latest episode vlog below and watch past episodes here.

Brooklyn Tankard the star of Thicker Than Water is up this week. Brooklyn is pretty funny and exciting, she’s a little bit off though. She’s basically a single mom with a daughter and you know she doesn’t get to meet quality men, she really hasn’t found her equal.

My other client this week is liquor entrepreneur Amit Ram, he’s from Long Island. He’s got this awful f---ing beard on his face. Girls in the clubs like his beard, yeah, yeah in 1959 they do, not in 2015.

For those two we chose to do a Hot Seat Mixer. That means Brooklyn and Amit interview potential dates and if they don’t like someone they can kick them out of the hot seat, but if they like them, they get to stay. So it’s kind of like musical chairs.

Brooklyn goes through a bunch of guys and some of them are really awesome. I personally love Jason, he’s tall, he’s older, he’s been divorced, he has kids, he’s a very solid guy. But Brooklyn’s got her eye on Michael who's a bit younger, really hot, super sexy, has sort of a football player look -- and she can’t take her eyes off of him. Instead of going for the substance she’s going for the sizzle.

Meanwhile, Amit chose a great little petite girl named Daniella, she’s also a gym rat like him, they have a lot in common. He’s taken her on an interesting date, free-running training, you know when run and when you jump and you climb, it’s kind of extreme dating. They’re both pretty bad at it, but they love working out so they have a really great time. Then he takes her to a nice dinner at a classy place, Miceli’s.

I just hope Brooklyn took some of my lessons with her back to Nashville, because she needs a lot of work.

Brooklyn had a really nice date with Michael, they went peddle boating. But Michael didn’t ask much about Brooklyn, and this didn’t really work out for her because she likes to be the center of attention. So I don’t think that she chose well. I think it should’ve been Jason, which is the one I wanted her to go out with all along. I just hope she took some of my lessons with her back to Nashville because she needs a lot of work. I bet she'll be back again next time.
