Madison lets us know what's going on with Charlie and what he thought of Patti's assessment of his dating style.

Bravotv.com: Why did you decide to let Patti set you up now?
She is the best at what she does. . .and she got me "buzzed" at lunch and I said yes. LOL. I trust her also as a friend. In addition, she was willing to change the normal format and have just a few selected guys which made me feel more comfortable instead of the usual messy mixer of 20 plus.

Bravotv.com: Was Patti right? Are you a lazy lion when it comes to dating?
I am a lion, but lazy, I am not.

Bravotv.com: What did you think of the guys at the mixer? Were you impressed with who Patti found?
In all honestly, even though it was my request for a smaller mixer, when I walked out and found only four guys. . .I got kind of nervous. I could tell right away only two caught my attention, so the odds weren't looking good. (See pics of the men Patti had to choose from)

Bravotv.com: What did you think of your cohort William? Did you debate switching with him for any of his guys?
William was sincere and I hope he finds love. He was very sweet. As for swap-a-roo'ing with any of his potentials, no thanks. They were picked for him for the right reasons, and not for me.

Bravotv.com: Why did you like Charlie? Was it his Patti-approved haircut?
Charlie is cool, masculine, athletic, and fun. His hair was a wild mess, haha. Patti helped that lion mane indeed, but he still needs a spritz or two. LOL.

Bravotv.com: Why did you choose Charlie for your date instead of Luciano?
I chose Charlie because I felt we had a lot in common with each other. So if we did have chemistry, we would have a lot of fun together. At the end of the day I'm looking for a partner who is not only my lover but my best friend.

Luciano is very handsome and put together but I didn't feel all the "goooodnesss."

Bravotv.com: What did you think of your date with Charlie?
My date with Charlie was the perfect day. We had beautiful scenery, great conversations, and a very relaxed afternoon topped off with a great meal. It felt like we were on a mini-vacation getting to know each other, and I really enjoyed it.

Bravotv.com: What's happening with you and Charlie now? Did you ever go on that second date?
Charlie and I have stayed in touch but I think he travels even more than I do. We've made efforts to reconnect but between our schedules it's been difficult. . .we shall see.

Bravotv.com: What did you learn from working with Patti? Have you changed the way you date at all?
Patti is a friend and she's also the best at what she does. But if she's calling me a lazy lion and I disagree -- I might have to take another look at myself. Like I said in the episode, I am just being patient, completely focused on my career, and busy. However I am also looking for love, so if that means I need to carve out more time and be more proactive when it comes to perusing that man . .then that's what I shall do, otherwise time keeps ticking; I'm not getting any younger.

Making a Match: A Bachelor's Bachelor

Patti Stanger dishes on getting dog out of of Bachelor star Jesse Kovacs and getting AJ Johnson to let go of control. 

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 Bravo's own Sheree Whitfield to musician Adam O'Rourke!

Each week, we're asking Patti to weigh in on every episode in her exclusive vlog. She'll tackle the good (ditching the douche), the bad (AJ standing up his second date)—and the hilarious (did Patti just say she loves porn?!). 

This week, she talks about finding the perfect match for The Bachelor's infamous Jesse Kovacs, Candace Smith's pal and perfectionist AJ Johnson and more. Check out the latest episode vlog below and watch past episodes here.

This was a fun week I had two clients, AJ Johnson from Chicagolicious and Jesse Kovacs -- he’s been on several versions of The Bachelor.

I’ll start with AJ: he wants the perfect partner in business, life and love. Candace tells me he is a control freak and she is not kidding. I call him Mr. Cuffington because he likes putting girls in cuffs and he wants to control their look, what they say, how they act. He is a mess, but he is a nice guy. If he continues to put the cuffs on the girls he’s going to drive down lonely lane. I have an idea of how I’m going to do this mixer, but at first I introduce AJ to a fellow stylist mister blow out himself Jonathan Anton. He is in the same business as AJ and he’s had a lot of success.

On to my other client, when I meet Jesse Kovacs he’s nice and he’s handsome, so why does he have trouble finding love? Because he has a terrible reputation. He just wants to meet a nice girl who likes him for who he is and isn’t pre-judging him, but I need to get deeper. He knows he’s screwed up and he’s willing to change.

Jesse Kovacs is nice and he’s handsome, so why does he have trouble finding love? Because he has a terrible reputation.


For both these guys I want to do a special mixer. In this mixer were going to play a little game and my clients aren’t going to be able to see the girls. This works out great and AJ whittles his choice down to beautiful pageant girl Melissa and Jesse chooses cute little Kate.

AJ takes Melissa on a very romantic day of wine tasting in Malibu, they even get to stomp around in the grapes and they ended up having dinner at Geoffrey’s overlooking the water. I hope they will see each other again and I know

AJ has learned a lot from this.

Jesse also had some success. He and Kate had a playful date go-kart racing and I think they really hit it off, we’ll see. But I think both of my guys have learned a lot about themselves and about love.
