I meet Shawn at my office; he needs a girl who has her own thing going on, is in shape, and is ready to start a family right now. He admits he’s bossy, so I tell him he cannot boss the girl around, and at the end of the day, it’s a two-way street. We’re at the mixer at the Reef in Long Beach. Chef K chooses Rocio over Jillian. Rocio was able to put Chef K at ease, and she loved that Rocio's favorite comfort food was something simple: and peanut butter and banana sandwich. Chef K meets Rocio at a boat; they have fishing poles and it looks like they’ll be fishing for their lunch. Good thing Chef K has a back-up plan if they don’t catch anything! They open up to each other about control, and eventually it’s time for a quick bite. They have a champagne toast, and share a kiss at the end.
Shawn picks up Alison in a limo. They ride around town, drink wine, and nibble on food. For dinner, Shawn takes her to a restaurant where they have more wine, and Alison opens up to him about her fear of getting hurt, and Shawn calls her naïve. This quickly goes downhill, until it’s time to just stop the bleeding.
I agree that Shawn got the shaft. Alison is immature and couldn't take any constructive criticism. She was overly sensitive. He didn't "do" anything to her!
Shawn just said her views about all the guardedness was naive and I agree totally... Patti was way to rough on him...
I don't think Shawn was as much of a problem as everyone seems to think, him and Alison were just completely incompatible. Alison has her guard way up and could probably only date a sensitive emotional guy, if she doesn't walk all over him. She also seemed way too young for Shawn. He would only get along with a total slave or a 'put together' woman who didn't care that much for him emotionally.
I'm happy you finally found someone, Patti! But good Lord honey let's keep the tongue in check.. and in the bedroom!! Shawn was a complete jerk. Allison was so good at keeping herself conducted! If I were her and my date called me naive, I would've slapped him! Chef K seemed nice, but why didn't she follow-up with Rocio?? Shame. Well good luck to you and your man! I am VERY interested to see what your wedding will be like! ;)
If anyone needs to go see a shrink, it's Alison. Wow...she looks like she could snap a guys head off. Shawn was right, she was being naive. You have to be ready to take the risk of getting hurt going into a relationship, or you're not ready to date. Maybe Patti missed the video of their date when Miss Pissy Pants got so indignant she couldn't have a rational conversation. Shawn was mature enough to suck it up when Patti told him he needs to see a shrink, and that speaks volumes about Shawn. Patti's usually on target, but she's way off on this one. Alison will be a nightmare to date...the guy will have to walk on egg shells with her...guaranteed!
Shawn is a condescending a--hole. Allison is well rid of him. Patti-- I hope you can find her someone nice!
I am so disappointed in Chef Kay though!!! For apparently not following through after that great first date. Gee whiz!!! I hope you help Rocio find another cool chick!
I am so so happy for Patti & David!!! I am starting to have more confidence in my ability to date after seeing so many people with so many personality/psychology defects on your show. I need to work on my money and looks---but many of these rich and/or gorgeous people have serious indelible issues.
I think patty is good at what she does and the average man doesn't need help. Self absorbed idiots do!
Its easy to be a matchmaker when you've got a hook by this I mean wealthy or women that are in their 20's and 30's that look like what she recruits. That's an easy people to match. Lets challenge Patty to take the average income and looking people and see how great of a matchmaker she really is. Just saying what everyone else is think.
Based on what we saw on the program, Alison came across as defensive and not ready to take any risk for a relationship. Shawn, on the other hand, is ready to take a risk. It got heated from there. Why did Alison show up at Patty's office unexpectedly? Drama. Of course, Patty has all of the video of the date, but based on what we saw we disagree with Patty's conclusion.
KKinNaples Shawn is arrogant and overbearing. These are not attractive traits. Any self-respecting woman would have reacted the same way.
lawgirl163 is spot on. KKinNaples would figure this out after spending 30 mins with shawn. I would encourage any woman to not make conclusions based on a show that probably made several edits and revisions. Im telling you...Patty is spot on..why do you think a good looking millionaire who just moved to Cali last year needs to come on the show to find a woman? Think about it ..... he is arrogant and has no idea how to treat a woman because he can't get past his own narcissistic self. I guarantee you he initially wanted to be on the show bc he loves the attention and thinks he's got life aaaaaall figured out for every one...yet he is still not married and has no kids in his early forties. I only know enough about him to know that he is dangerous to any woman's emotional well being, but I think deep down there is a lot of insecurity and some really dark issues that need to be resolved. I was engaged to a Narcissisist and I recognized these red flags with Shawn right off the bat.
KKinNaples I agree. When Patti was interviewing the ladies, she did tell them that this guy was relationship ready. I knew that it was not gonna work when she refused the kiss.
I am so happy for you and David! I hope you find your true love. You totally deserve it! He looks like a great guy.
