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: Serving Up Love with Sheree

Patti dishes on working with former Atlanta Housewife Shereé Whitfield and setting up tennis pro Sam Querrey. 

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 Kenya Moore and 'Chili' Thomas to Thicker Than Water's Brooklyn Tankard.

Each week, we're asking Patti to weigh in on every episode in her exclusive vlog. She'll tackle everything from picking Mr.Right to psychic readings to one Housewives bossy ways.  

This week, she talks about finding a man for gorgeous former Atlanta Housewife Shereé Whitfield, teaching pro tennis player Sam Querrey a lesson in love. Check out the latest episode vlog below and watch past episodes here.

The week was great; Shereé Whitfield came to visit, formerly of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. I was really surprised that she wasn’t as bossy as she was on the show.

Shereé seemed closed off to new love and I wasn’t sure why, it’s been awhile since she was in a relationship.

I also introduced her to James Van Praagh one of the most famous psychics and mediums in history and gave her a real clarifying reading.

My other client this week was adorable Sam Querrey. Sam is a tennis pro, he’s like 30th in the world, he’s like the guy next door and he wants true love.    

I start recruiting, when it comes to the women for Sam, I’m looking for a beautiful girl, who’s kind of flexible with her schedule, independent, and can keep herself busy.

 

And Shereé. . .well, let’s just say Shereé can be bossy.

And Shereé. . .well, let’s just say Shereé can be bossy. So I need more of an alpha man for her. And the twist this week is that every person brought in something that represented them. I think that was David’s idea.

I’ve been wanting to do the mixer on a boat for quite some time. I even got to blast an air horn on the boat. So we set up a power dating mixer.

At the end Shereé chose handsome Terry, he’s hot, successful; he even has ties to Atlanta which is really good so he can visit her.

Meanwhile, Sam chose the adorable Kylie she is a ballerina, totally into the home values thing. Sam takes Kylie out for an afternoon of archery and while I was nervous at first, it sounded kind of corny; they actually had a really good time. They went to the Melting Pot, one of my favorite places of dinner and they love each other and are hanging out.

Terry takes Shereé to Paint N’ Sit where you can actually drink wine and paint pictures, it’s kind of a cozy intimate romantic thing. I think what happened with Shereé is that she really didn’t give him a chance and the truth is that Terry is a really good guy and she needed to open up. He dressed great; this is her issue not Terry’s.

All in all, pretty good week.
