My Favorite Client Ever

Ep 3: Destin dishes the dirt on why Jim was his favorite client to date on Millionaire Matchmaker

Jim, Jimmy, James, Jimbo… whatever. And Destin gets a Spray Tan.

Yes, I got a spray tan. And if nothing else, I look less pasty. Not that there is anything wrong with pasty, but if my white ass is going to be telling the girls to stop being so sickly pale, I guess I should take a spoonful of my own medicine. The weirdest part though (aside from feeling compelled to dye my skin with fruit extracts sprayed from an airbrush on a regular basis), is the ‘tan line’. I feel like the Coppertone baby.

On to the Millionaires Club… this week we had the two Jims – Jim and Jimmy for the sake of this blog. Jimmy, Rach’s guy, is an older looking chap with a simple personality and about three six packs under his shirt. Doesn’t compete with the keg I have, but that’s probably a good thing. He’s nice enough, but kind of a drip.

My millionaire, Jim, though – is the bomb. He’s a sweet guy, in the film business like myself, funny, self-deprecating and kind. Love him. If I had a millionaire like him every week, my job would be so much easier. Matter of fact I will offer a GENEROUS commission to anyone that refers me a few more like this that pay for our services. Seriously, I’m not kidding. Help make my life easier!

Anyway, Jim has a few issues – doesn’t realize he leads with is money and whatnot- but they’re easily curbed. Patti likes him – again things that make job easier – so that’s good.

We meet some girls, pick the ones we like for our mixer – and get the party started.

Jimmy picks poorly. Jim picks wisely.

Jimmy’s date involves airblown ‘skydiving’. Who thinks that’s a good idea for a first date? Definitely not his date.

Jim pulls out all the stops for his date, Selma, with a mini photo-shoot, gourmet dinner, and some secret rendezvous afterwards.

He reports back with an ear-to-ear grin, and we all know what happened.

In the end, I like Jim. He takes the place of my favorite client to date. Now, Jim, fund my next movie – Sushi Girl is out and I’m ready for my next project – and by project I don’t mean a millionaires with a chipmunk voice. D’oh! That’s next week. Sigh. This is my life.

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.
