The Brother's Gonna Work it Out

Rachel focuses on the part of the Cruz brother that most disturbed her -- working out.

Apparently Team MC decided we wanted to now be in Philly -- the city of brotherly love.

This week we had the uber-Chrisitan Cruz brothers Abe and David in the house. Abe was "bad boy gone God" and David was "What Would Jesus Do with a broken heart?" They reminded me of TBN's version of Jersey Shore. I wonder if they would pay themselves to stop wearing their Forever Faith clothing? Ah well, they were a couple of nice sweet boys regardless.

Long story short, Abe chose Tiffany who gave him a sermon on how to work those abs and David chose Ayla who just batted her eyes and swooned at his sweat. By the way, Ayla, I love your Flashdance-Olivia Newton-John-"Let's-Get-Physical" workout clothes. Viva la 1980! I have to mention that no one seemed to point out the big no-no with these guys other than Abe wanting to get Tiffany into a hot tub -- and that's who in the holy guacamole would want to go on a double date and work out!?! No girl wants to sweat on a first date fellas! Patti, c'mon you missed that train!?!

Long story even shorter, David was quite the chap and that kiss with Ayla, wowzers that was definitely not "church tongue." Good job! Abe, well keep on designing those threads and pumping that iron and maybe you'll meet a nice gal on the runway or at a Turkish bath house -- I hear they have really great steam rooms for relaxing the muscles.

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.

Patti Stanger

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.
