The Rules According to Aimee

Patti's proud of Millionaires Aimee and Matt: both let their guards down and had great dates.

Read Patti's full transcript after the jump!Aimee is a controlling freak and has way too many rules. Matt, on the other hand, is wild Matt versus real Matt. He's all over the place. Aimee is a northerner, a self-made millionaire, she loves dancing... but here's the key: she doesn't like to be touched. She has a lot of weird rules.

Matt's an heir to a sand and gravel company, he's a pro-wrestler, and he loves when girls fight over him. I met Matt at Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles (what a place to go to meet Matt; he loves waffles). He's a super nice guy, and he pretends to come off as the opposite. Wrestler Matt isn't real Matt: there's a Southern gentleman underneath.

I met Aimee at the office. I figured that all those rules lead to control issues. For Aimee, I needed a man that doesn't mind controlling women, likes to dance, and doesn't come on too strong. For Matt, I want someone who's sweet, can deal with Matt's crazy-wild side, and is great to take home to mom.

Our mixer this week was at Cinespace. Aimee was a bit controlling at the mixer, but eventually calmed down. I tried to steer her in the right direction (I picked Ken for her), and she liked Paolo. So, she picked Paolo.

Matt liked Vanessa, but eventually chose Shelise, which was a really good choice for him. Matt took Shelise to a yoga lesson and a facial. He went all out: he had flowers and candies for her. He had a great date where he called her dad and asked him to go hunting!

Paolo took Aimee to salsa dancing at 3rd Street Dance and to dinner at Sadie LA. They had a really nice date, but it wasn't a match; they had too many differences. Although Aimee and Paolo weren't a love connection, Aimee did great: she's feeling more comfortable with the touching, and doesn't think the world is going to end if she kisses a frog. Matt followed my advice and acted like a super Southern gentleman. He and Shelise have already gone out once and will go out again.

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!
