Let the Man Be the Man on a Date

Patti does her best to match Alpha Angela and Strong Shonda, but both dates manage to go awry.

See Patti's full transcript, after the jump.Angela’s an alpha female, and Shonda’s a wounded bird with a super-hero syndrome. Angela’s a blogger from Boca Raton, Florida. She’s a mother of one son, but she’s friends with her ex-husband, Greg, and we know that she loves short men. Shonda’s from Columbus, Ohio. She founded rockstarbikini.com, an online bikini contest. A few years ago, she won the Arnold Schwarzenegger Sports Festival Fitness Contest, and she loves Donald Trump, including his hair.

I met Angela for tea at a café. She loves Ari Gold, because she thinks that he’s so powerful, and she thinks that that’s what she needs. Well, we’ll see about that.

Shonda’s admits she was cheated on by a guy, and that they never once talked about marriage or living together. She’s ready for her Donald Trump.

We had the mixer at STK in Hollywood for these ladies, so it would be a little more intimate and they would get to know the guys better.

Angela was turned off by Gage’s overwhelming personality, although… he was the Ari Gold of the group. She liked Jeff the lawyer instead. Shonda looked like she was hitting it off with Scott, but she chose John, the British Donald Trump type. Angela, who’s way too alpha, met Jeff at a skeet shooting range. She kicked his ass by hitting more skeets than he did. She even said “I’m the man" at one point. For dinner, they went off to the Charleston, where Jeff tried to fit into the appropriate male role. But once he did, once again, Angela was the dominant one.

Shonda met her beau, John, at Mixology. They made a few drinks and tried to get to know one another. For dinner they went to Off Vine.

Angela did an ok job. She was alpha on the date and took control, and she learned that she needs an alpha male. Shonda did a pretty good job herself. John was a Donald-Trump-type kind of a guy that had a lot to talk about, but ultimately, they had no chemistry.

I hope these girls learned a lot from their experience.

Making a Match: A #Matchmaker First!

Patti never dreamed that her couples counseling for Allison Baver and her man would end up in a Clubhouse proposal! 

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 Dina Lohan and Bravo's own Kenya Moore to The Bachelorette's Jesse Kovacs!

Each week, we're asking Patti to weigh in on every episode in her exclusive vlog. She'll tackle the good (a #Matchmaker proposal!), the bad (celeb chef Devin picking the wrong man)—and the surprising (exotic dancing, anyone?). 

This week, she talks about finding the perfect match for Devin Alexander, taking on her first Matchmaker couple Allison Baver and her boyfriend Tommy and more. Check out the latest episode vlog below and watch past episodes here.

This week Olympic Speed Skater Allison Baver came to me with her new boyfriend Tommy that has been together with her for ten months.
What they actually need is a relationship tune-up. That’s one of my rules: never move in without some form of commitment. Allison she is an alpha, she is interrupting Tommy a lot and doesn’t even realize it, and she’s bullying the poor guy.

The last thing that comes up is that he happens to be a former exotic dancer.
My second client this week is Devin Alexander she’s a chef to celebrities and a best-selling cookbook author. She’s a cute girl but she’s dressed in a grandma dress, bustling around her kitchen with a dippy smile on her face, so I have a lot of work to do this week. And lose that Batman Joker smile.

It's mixer day at the Emerson nightclub, Candace helped Devin by picking a sexy dress and she’s looking smoking hot but there is a twist, David brings Allison and Tommy to watch. And I can see it on Allison’s face -- watching the process reminds Allison how hard it is to meet a single guy.
I send them off on a surprise field trip, some love lessons. Meanwhile at the mixer Devin’s choices are narrowed down to three guys. I really like Dan and Aaron, but Devin keeps staring at Todd. Todd is great, but doesn’t really seem into her. I can lead a horse to water but I can’t make it drink. If Todd is a great date so be it, but she doesn’t listen.

When I asked if they were still thinking about marriage in the future, Tommy did something I wasn’t expecting. . .


Back to Allison and Tommy, I set up Allison with a class with a champion pole dancer. So Allison can appreciate the work Tommy used to do.

We sent Tommy to a skating lesson and this time it was Allison’s job to cheer Tommy on and support him.

The love lessons were great, when I asked if they were still thinking about marriage in the future, Tommy did something I wasn’t expecting.

Yes! Chalk one more up for the Matchmaker this week, that’s what I live for and now I have another wedding to dance at. Love it!
