The Little Matchmaker Recap

Episode 13: Bravotv.com's Associate Editor relishes in the delight that was watching Patti date (and zipline).

Nov 21, 2011

It's here. It's here. It's finally here! The big moment of the season is upon us. The master has finally become the student, as Patti sits back and becomes the matchee. Ack so much to learn! I hope you have some popcorn on hand because this episode was worth it.

Do: Date divorced men

Was there anything funnier than seeing Patti grilled with her own questions? Methinks not. I have to say I was shocked with her choice of Matthew McConaughey as her celebrity crush, but I was not shocked to learn that 30-year-olds are good at sucking face (enough practice and still agile to make it work). I did learn that divorced men are great to date, since they can obviously commit.

As it turns out, Patti's pretty healthy and well-rounded (at least by Destin's accounts), so setting her up should be a breeze. Except for the fact that it’s Patti, and if it’s not she will destroy all of them.

Do: Have a job, know what you write on forms, etc., etc.
As the gang (Destin, Rachel, Patti's friend Rose, and her manager Jeff) interview prospective dates for Patti, there were a lot of frogs amongst the princes. The first guy couldn't remember what he wrote on his form (wasn’t it minutes ago guy?). The second guy, Scott, had a plethora of jobs but none that seemed to provide income. The third guy had a pocket square! These were not the sort of men Patti Stanger would date. These were the sort of men she would barely look at. I was worried, but of course, as it progressed things got better. There were a lot of handsome men, and a lot less yelling, which I kind of missed frankly. What's a recruiting session without Patti telling someone what a miserable failure they are?!?
