Ep 3: Patti explains that the mistake of leading with wealth or a hot bod is that you'll get what you give.

This week we have Jimmy G and Jim: Jimmy G has got this amazing, cut body. Face of a grandfather, but the body of a 25 year old—drop-dead gorgeous, lives in Scottsdale, Arizona, very successful. His house is known as “The Museum” because he’s so OCD, and a perfectionist; nothing can be moved, everything’s clean, and that’s the way he likes his women. That’s a really hard thing to do.

And then we’ve got Jim, who is uber-successful, marries his women—there’s just one problem: he never gets a pre-nup. So he’s the mis-leader: he leads with his money, then gets pissed that they only want him for money.

Now my job is to fix them up, and our mixer this week is our traditional, state-of-the-art, Millionaire Matchmaker mixer. I wanted Jimmy G to realize that perfection is what’s blocking him from the right girl, so I brought in one of my best friends, Kara Mooney, who happens to be one of the ultimate Theta Healers in Los Angeles. Now, Theta Healing is supposed to tell you what blocks you’re dealing with on a daily basis. If we know what our blocks are, we can remove them. Kara’s going to heal him of all of his OCD-perfectionism.

Now, Jim AND Jimmy G. love Charlize Theron. Well, who wouldn’t? But I feel like something’s not quite right with Jim. Jim was married to an Asian. Now, I’m sorry, but you don’t go from Asian all the way to Caucasian in one fell swoop, ok? So Selma comes in: she’s Asian, she has a job, she’s smart, she’s intelligent, and he picks Selma at the mixer!

I tried to get Jimmy G. to pick school-teacher Mary but he picked Nasia, who happens to be German. Now that would be great if she were American-German, but she was full-on German and there was an accent problem; he couldn’t understand what she was saying. And this was going to be a disaster. I knew from the get go that he picked the wrong girl.

Jim had a great date because he took her to his comfort zone: they went to his building that he rented out from ICM, about 80,000 square feet. He created this private movie club, where you can create your own movie in his space, and they had a great, great time. Selma was pampered from head to toe. She got make-up, she got a massage, she got a fabulous dinner that Jim had ordered for her. This was a great date—clearly these two were going to fall in love.

Jim decided to do iFLY. Now, personally, iFLY is like a third, fourth date. I wouldn’t personally recommend that on the first date because it’s indoor sky-diving; it’s a little bit risky, and I know that a girl would not like this, especially if she got dressed up for the date and she didn’t know where she was going. That was his biggest mistake. But the language barrier! He took her to dinner and couldn’t even communicate, and there was no romance, and clearly neither one of them liked each other. He didn’t speak German, I don’t know why he went back to his roots; she couldn’t understand him, he couldn’t understand her. It was a disaster.

Jim followed my advice: he relaxed, he knows to sign a pre-nup, and he fell in love. He did everything I told him to do. Jimmy, on the other hand, was not exactly following my rules. He picked the wrong girl, he started to get a little perfectionist-y and OCD at the mixer, however, I do think that Kara has transformed him because he said that there are a lot of things he’s “letting slide.” So it’s going to be a process; this won’t happen in a day.

A Waste of a Good Mirror

Patti hopes they master cloning so Justin can date himself, but she's ecstatic Michael let his inner nerd hang out.

Read Patti's full transcript after the jump!

OK. This was a week and a half!

My first client was great. Michael Sartain, an estate manager who lives in Vegas. He’s good looking, rich, polite. What’s wrong with him? Well I meet him and I realize, there really isn’t anything wrong with him. He’s stuck in Vegas, all he does is work. But it’s just not the kind of town where you’re basically going to meet a really nice girl. He goes out  to clubs, he meets club girls. He goes out to casinos, same thing same thing over and over again. This is the kind of guy who’s as comfortable walking down the strip as burying his nose in a science book. He’s really smart.  And nerdy things but he doesn’t think girls want to hear about that. He’s super super sexy science cute. That’s where I come in.

 

I tell him that the first rule to having a relationship is being yourself. And if you’re a guy who loves physics and astronomy, well you better not date a girl who wants to go out dancing every night. That’s just, stupid! You don’t have to be twins but you have to respect eachother. I told Michael that it was ok to let the inner nerd come out a little bit. And find out if that was acceptable to a girl. And he would have no problem!


On the other side of things, though, I’ve had one of my most annoying clients ever. Justin Ross Lee. J-R-L. The guy that makes narcissism look like a super power. He’s one of those guys that is just so in love with himself. Why don’t they finally master cloning and give him what he wants -- another him. Here’s the thing, with this guy he’s all bullsh--. I know he has money, he’s inherited a bunch form his parents. He’s all into the rich look and being pretentious. And if he doesn’t lose the act, and get real, he will never meet a woman he can be in a relationship with. If he really wants that, he’s so full of shit.

But I can’t say that I’m not going to try. I bring out all the tricks in my book. I ask him to nurture a plant and bring it to the mixer. He brings plastic. I ask him to lose the pretentious douche-wear. Putting on something fun and 70s for a disco mixer! He ignores me, he still wears Piccadilly pants.  I ask him to get real and actually lose his fake attitude, and ask the girls authentic questions, he acts like an asshole! So at some point, there’s not much more I can do to this guy. I can lead the horse to water, but I can't change him if he’s a horses a--.


The 70s disco mixer goes great. We’ve got like 10 disco balls and Michael’s totally into it wearing a huge wig, he’s great. Justin Ross Lee wears a stupid suit and his pocket square -- yuck. He’s getting on my nerves! I try to get him to be himself and he doesn’t f---ing budge. So I’m glad that we picked out a girl with a sense of humor who can take him down a notch. In the end he chooses Ariane and Alex. Two models, shocker, of course. For his mini dates and ends up with Arianne. Good -- shes not gonna put up with his f---ing bullsh--.

On the other side, Michael is letting his nerd hang out. He’s being honest and telling the girls what he loves to do. His science stuff. And you know what? They like him for who he is because he’s being honest about himself and telling them what he’s into. He picks two great girls. Cynthia and Andrea.

Michael takes her to a flight simulator thing where you can pick your own jet fighter and she loves it in the end, they’re shooting each other down like Top Gun and it’s super sexy. But he also brings his romantic side. He has a strong quartet playing for her and then he brings her to a nice romantic dinner where they really talk and get to know each other. And she responds to him. It goes great. That’s what happens when a guy listens to me!

Meanwhile Mr. Pretentious Jacka-- I’m An A--hole With My Pocket Square, gets a big yacht (meaning he has no penis) and he tries to wine and dine young Ariane, who knows he’s full of sh-- the moment he opens his mouth. And just like I suspected- he can’t keep his mouth closed for more than a second before he’s insulting her. He says he looked her up on Google, and she’s not really thirty, and she’s been lying to him. Now I know she’s really 35 -- I have her drivers license. When I screened Arianne, I saw that she was 35 which is on her paperwork -- that’s fine! That’s what I told him I was going to have at the mixer 30 and 35! I don’t really give a shit, because on the paperwork, she fit the bill for him to date. He’s rude to ask and he was a complete dick about it.

So we all know why Justin isn’t leaving my club with a girl on his arm: because Justin is in love with one thing, and that’s not money, that’s not blondes, that’s Justin. And I’m never going to set him up with a girl who’s as ugly as himself -- that’s for sure. The guy’s a waste of a good mirror.
