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: Making Jill (and Ally) Happy

Patti finds the perfect match to suit both Ally and Jill's needs and tries to take the pink away from her Prince.

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 Larry Birkhead and Perez Hilton to RHONY's own Sonja Morgan.

Each week, we're asking Patti to weigh in on every episode in her exclusive vlog. She'll tackle the good (crashing and saving Chilli's date), the bad (pink speedos)—and the hilarious (again, pink speedos). This week, she talks about setting up Jill Zarin's daughter Ally, matching a real Prince, and more. Check out the latest episode vlog below and watch past episodes here.

Read the full transcription below:

I summer with my good friend Jill Zarin every year. She spent four seasons on The Real Housewives of New York and just asked me to set up her daughter Ally. Ally is like my niece, so how could I say no? Now she's out of school, starting working and living her own life, which is important because until now she's been in the shadow of her mom, overprotective. It's now time for Ally to cut the cord and just be Ally. Ally's 22, cute, sweet and intelligent. I told her I could set her up, but it has to be the guy she wants and not what Jill wants.

My other client this week is a German prince, an adopted prince, and his stepmother happens to be Zsa Zsa Gabor. Oo la la! The first thing I notice is he leads with his princely ways. He's got a sash and medals, not to mention pink pants. That's gotta go. I start with some rules: don't tell the girls he's a prince, don't wear anything pink -- definitely straight -- that's not rugged. Instead of being the Prince I told him to be, "Yo, Max, from New Jersey!" Surely I can make him a man. Will it work? We'll see.

Because Ally can use a little confidence, I set up a meeting with Kristin Cavalarri. She's the perfect big sister that Ally can relate to. She's around the same age, grew up on reality TV and can advise her.


So it's recruiting time and I'm shakin' it up! After Candace and David have chosen appropriate daters, they get dressed to the nines and we have a party while Ally is upstairs watching. Jill and I go around the groups of guys and vet the daters. In the end, Ally chose James, a good choice. And he's Jewish -- that'll make Jill happy.

I told her I could set her up, but it has to be the guy she wants and not what Jill wants.


Now it's time to find a curvy blonde princess for the prince. I go around to all the groups of girls and make selections. I end up with four hottie patotties. The prince meets with all four girls and gets to know them. But ultimately Emily was the girl to teach the prince some masculine moves!

For their date, James and Ally met at the Wildlife Learning Center -- they get to know each other, check out some of the animals. Afterwards they have some stiff drinks as the bar.

Meanwhile the prince makes a grand entrance on the beach for his date. He comes out of the water  in a pink speedo. He did bring champagne, though. Emily showed him some yoga moves. Then they had a lovely conversation on a yacht. He told her his secret. She barely batted an eye. But she was up for the swim. When the prince moved in for a kiss, he was rejected. Maybe it was the pink speedo, or the flabby belly, maybe next time, no prince.

Both my couples learned a lot. But I will be following up with Ally. I really want her to end up with a great guy.
