Patti can lead her millionaires to a golf course, but can't make them hit a hole in one.

Read Patti's full transcript after the jump!

What a week! My first millionaire is Dr. Emil Chynn, he’s a super smart eye surgeon who lives in Manhattan, but can’t find love. What gives? His problem is he’s so technical minded, he has no idea how to romance a woman. No freakin’ idea. He even has a list of all the requirements a woman has to meet before they can date. It’s like a page long. That’s not how you find love, that’s how you hire an employee. 

My other millionaire, Daniel Passov. He’s tall, handsome, Jewish, and owns a successful t-shirt company in San Diego. Why hasn’t someone snatched him up already? These type of guys are never single. Daniel’s problem is that he’s more in love with the idea of meeting a woman in some magical Hollywood moment than he is in actually building a relationship. I need to get him to stop being moonstruck and start doing the work to build a lasting relationship like the one his parents have. Times are different, it doesn’t just fall into your lap like magic. 

Daniel ends up selecting Ariel for his master date. She’s perfect for him: beautiful, smart, ambitious, Jewish. She’s even spent time in Israel. Daniel takes her to make her own perfume, which is such an awesome date idea. I loved it. They both had a great time. I hope it’s not too long before Daniel’s stepping on the glass. Mazel tov!

Dr. Chynn picked Stephanie, a beautiful psychologist. This should be a slam dunk, but Dr. Chynn blows it. Shocker. He starts grilling her with questions like, "How soon does she want to have kids?" This is a first date, not a job interview. 

At least Dr. Chynn realizes what he did wrong. Hopefully on the next date he can actually bring some subtly and romance. I can lead the doctor to the gold course, but I can’t force him to hit a hole in one.

Making a Match: The Matchmaker is Always Right

"Aunt" Patti dishes on what is was really like working with Chris and mama bear Caroline Manzo.

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 Housewife Marysol Patton to Olympian Allison Baver!

Each week, we're asking Patti to weigh in on every episode in her exclusive vlog. She'll tackle the good (Caroline Manzo's recruiting session), the bad (Chris Manzo's mama's boy ways)—and the hilarious (Jenna Marbles cutting Chris Manzo and Max Hodges down to size!). 

This week, she talks about finding the perfect match for Chris and Caroline, taking on TMZ's Max Hodges and more. Check out the latest episode vlog below and watch past episodes here.

First we have Chris Manzo who's come back to visit me with mom Caroline. Here’s the problem: Chris is a bit of a mama’s boy, but in a good way. So for him, he needs a girl who’s okay with a bit of a man-child. And I know Caroline will have to approve of her so I’m begging her to come to recruiting.

My other client this week is Max Hodges from TMZ. Max has been around the Hollywood stars and red carpets for years and his reputation precedes him. Well it turns out he’s actually looking for a smart, well-traveled, girl next door, which is great.  

Here’s the problem Chris is a bit of a mama’s boy, but in a good way. So for him, he needs a girl who’s okay with a bit of a man-child.


I broke out my rolodex and found somebody from Chris’s and Max’s generation who I thought could help kind of give them advice. Internet guru Jenna Marbles. She’s like me, she’s isn’t afraid to tell it like it is so she gets to these two from the get-go.
It’s time for the mixer Caroline and I start interviewing the women and I have to be honest, it was all about who Caroline liked. My favorite was Amanda and Caroline liked her, too. She had a good sense of humor and had a great job, she gets to dress up as a super hero.
For Max we had a bunch of great contenders, but when we sat down and talked to them he couldn’t take his eyes off Bolivian bombshell Susy. Max took Susy paddle boarding which she got a kick out of; he followed my advice and took her to a romantic dinner afterwards. He actually got dressed up, he looked great.
I told Chris to do something different, out of his comfort zone, he took Amanda horseback riding. Then he took her to a great restaurant by the beach and they got to talk and share.
The Matchmaker is always right.
