A Red-Hot Night for the Millionaires

Patti is finally convinced to do a mixer for red-heads only, and is ecstatic at Dr. Chris's and Damian's results.

Read Patti's full transcript after the jump:Damian is an art dealer in Aspen. He has a HUGE personality. He says he loves to party, and when he parties, it’s 110%. His celebrity crush is… me. Can you believe that? But with red hair. Oh my God, am I scared or what? He wants to tone down his party side and find the right girl.

Dr. Chris is a radiologist from Los Angeles with two girls. He just got divorced a year ago. He seems a bit bitter because he tests girls. He dates 25-year-olds… like that’s gonna work! His daughters say they’re too young. His celeb crush is Ginger from Gilligan’s Island. Both guys love red-heads. That’s right… it’s red-head week.

I met Damian at Café del Rey and he’s got a bottle of wine in front of him. He loves drinking and partying. His last girlfriend lasted two years and it ended because she cheated on him. He wants marriage and kids, but the partying needs to stop in order for that to happen.

When I met Dr. Chris, I confronted him about his bitterness. He shouldn’t test girls, because he’ll come off as a bitter old man. He needs to date a girl around his age that is age appropriate. He’s fine with girls who have kids; he seems really open to this.



For Damian, I’m looking for petite girls who can handle his personality and for Dr. Chris, I’m looking for mature, sassy girls who are looking to get serious. This is our first red-headed mixer. Damian immediately hits it off with Amy and they connect instantly. He also connects with Beck over their love for the movies. He chooses Amy and Beck as his mini dates; for his master date, he chooses Amy.Dr. Chris makes rounds, and finds himself choosing Amy Jane, the Marine, and Nicole, the nuclear reactor girl -- what a combo! For his master date, he chooses Amy Jane.

Damian takes Amy up to Aspen for their date; how romantic is that?! They take a gondola up the mountain and drink champagne. On the way down, they find themselves in the middle of a lightning storm. Amy is pretty scared, but all is good when they finally make it to the bottom.

Dr. Chris and Amy Jane meet up at the chocolate factory and taste all types of chocolates. That’s really romantic! Dinner arrives, and it’s at a Boston lobster truck -- Amy Jane’s favorite!  They eat, and they eat, and they dessert it, and he gives her a book that he wrote for his daughters that he published himself. She loves it!Damian and Amy hit it off and have plans to see each other again. He seems like he’s tamed his wild ways. Love connection! Dr. Chris and Amy Jane hit it out of the park -- Amy Jane said it was the greatest date she’s ever been on. They’ve been dating each other since, and they’re madly in love. Two for two, a red-headed mixer; it was an amazing week!

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.
