When Good Guys Go Bad

Destin explains how Mitch got his swagger back, and tries to pinpoint where Ayinde's good side has gone.

Rachel and I are getting married this year. I know, I know -- it's about time. We've been going back and forth on where to have it for months and finally settled on a city we love –- NEW YORK! It's going to be a intimate celebration with a few friends and family, and of course our son. . .who is my best man.

Speaking of best men, my client this week is one my absolute favorites -– Mitch. Mitch is a technology guy who's ex left him for drug dealer. Ouch. He's a "soccer dad" who loves his kids to death. When it comes to women, he loves J. Lo and Brittany Spears. . .as in their look, not their music.

Also this week, Rachel has decided to bring back another favorite, Ayinde. Ayinde is a good-looking, former pro-volleyball player that has charm and charisma in truckloads. He recently started an internet radio station and has once again found himself single. He thinks he's the whole package, so he wants the whole package -- good schooling, good height, good looks, good personality, good family. . .good grief.

Mitch needs to work on his swagger. He needs to bring the bad boy out a little and not over share his feelings. He needs to butch up.

Ayinde needs to pocket his business talk and stop flapping his lips on how great he is. He needs to unarm that bad boy that's got the knife to throat of the good boy inside we used to know.

We decided to have an intimate mixer this week and give each guy five or six mini-dates instead of a whole room of women to choose from. We had our recruiting session that went amazing and were beyond prepared for the night.

After a prep talk between Mitch and I, our millionaires met and nervously prepared for the evening's event.

Mitch's dates go great. He's empowered and not as wounded. He's engaging, funny, and he found his inner swagger!

Ayinde can't get off the business tit and seems to not understand that the girls just don't care about his damn radio station.

Mitch chooses the perfect match, Tova -- a beautiful, sweet girl he takes on an amazing first date –- filled with car service, exotic animal feeding, and private chef prepared meals. They talk and connect. And even though Mitch slightly reverts back to his old ways of oversharing his feelings, Tova takes it with a grain of salt. A "wrinkle that can be ironed out," I like that.

Ayinde chooses Bracha -- a culinary instructor who has it all going for her -- brains, body, and talent. He takes her (without telling her mind you -- so she's all decked out) on a crappy first date planting a tree, followed by a diner where he grills her on food choices, education, and everything else under the sun. Ultimately concluding that she's not a good enough for him -- because she's got an up and coming business! Yep, throat officially slit of the good boy. Sigh.

In the end, Mitch balanced his good and bad -- and came out on top. Ayinde, on the other hand, didn't. Instead, he got kicked out of our offices. . . dragging his dead good boy behind him.

Making a Match: Larry Birkhead & Melyssa Ford

Find out what Patti really thought about sexy Melyssa and shy guy Larry's dates.

This week I got to meet one of the sweetest guys in the world, Larry Birkhead: the boy from Kentucky. There’s just one problem: he hasn’t dated in like a decade. This guy needs practice. I mean, he’s drop dead gorgeous and he can’t do anything. I can send him out into the world and the world of a mixer and a date, but he could botch it. Candace and I will give him some mock dating experience and I will pick his date for him. The first time he’ll meet her will be when they go out for the first time. No chance for him to get nervous, and more importantly, no time for the girl to look him up and see who he is. He can stand on his own two feet and just be himself, not Anna Nicole’s ex.

My other client this week is drop dead gorgeous: Melyssa Ford. She’s the star of Blood Sweat and Heels, she used to be in a bunch of music videos, and she was nicknamed the "Video Vixen". I know it’s hard to turn off the beauty and the booty, so I bring her to doctor Pat Allen. Doctor Pat and I have worked together for years. Doctor Pat told Melyssa that she should be leading with her brain. Melyssa can be sexy no matter what: but can she look for the guy who’s interested in what she has to say, not what she looks like?

So I’m doing something new: I get Candace and David to bring a bunch of good appropriate men and women to the mixer. I just want a handful of guys for Melyssa, and a handful of girls for Larry. I introduce the best ones to Melyssa for her to choose from, and I’ll pick the best girl to set up Larry with on a blind date. Melyssa picks Jay. Jay listened to the conversation, and remembered Melyssa liked bowling and cigars. And he took her on a perfect, fun, get-to-know-you date. Meanwhile, Larry met up with his date at Universal Studios. He had a private tour set up, and he and Michelle met for the first time. They had a blast. She knew who he was, but they got past that and they got to know each other. And he took her for dinner and even got a kiss at the end.

So in the end, I’m so happy that both Larry and Melyssa got to learn something. Larry got to know he can be himself and there’s no need to be shy, and she knows (Melyssa) that there are guys out there who can look past her booty and see the great girl underneath.
