Cast Blog: #MATCHMAKER

Courtney Kerr and a Swedish Peacock

Patti is thrilled that she could help her Dallas single and colorful Swede find a match -- in each other!

 

Read Patti's full transcript after the jump:

This week was a doozy. I almost had to fire Justin. I found out he got a number from one of my daters.

But our two clients were great this week! The first one was Stefan Dahlqvist. He owns Moods of Norway, one of the most popular clothing brands in Scandinavia. I met him at his store. His stuff is so colorful, pinks and oranges.

I brought David to make sure he wasn’t gay. He’s not. He’s actually sort of into guy stuff, has a motorcycle which cancels out the pink limo. He likes the outdoors, camping. I called him the peacock, but told him he had to channel his inner falcon to attract the kind of woman he wanted. I think he got it.

My other client was Courtney Kerr from Dallas. She hosts a morning talk show, is a fashion blogger and she was featured on Bravo’s Most Eligible Dallas. She’s still single. It’s always an on again, off again with Matt.

So I took this as a chance to try to set her up. Courtney had one really great relationship. She got broken up on New Year’s Eve during the countdown -- can you believe that? So I had to convince her to stop thinking about the past and about Matt.

But she also likes to take control and take over, and no guy wants that. You sometimes have to let the man be the man. I think she heard me.

So we had a beautiful mixer at my favorite place, Tru in Hollywood. I decided that both Courtney and Stefan could benefit from starting the mixer blindfolded! They couldn’t be distracted by how the daters looked at first. They just had to get to know them by talking, just talking, nothing else but talking. Soon they had their favorites picked out and they got to take a look and pick their mini-dates.

Something was going on with Courtney and Stefan.  That’s right, it was happening, under my roof. He was really making her laugh and I think she really liked him. But the two of them went on their mini dates anyway, and got to meet two other people each.

In the end though, my instinct was quite right. Each of them liked each other so much that Stefan asked Courtney out on the master date and she said yes!

I knew he was in really good shape when he immediately took her to a Country Western bar, hired a teacher to teach him to two-step. Then he had a gorgeous dinner prepared in a private home, overlooking the hills, where they could talk and get to know each other. He even had famous Scandinavian singer serenade them.

Finally he took her home, dropped her off in the pink limo. I really think she liked him. He kept talking about inviting her to Norway, but he’s in L.A. and she’s in Dallas. We’ll see what happens.

Making a Match: A Bachelor's Bachelor

Patti Stanger dishes on getting dog out of of Bachelor star Jesse Kovacs and getting AJ Johnson to let go of control. 

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 Perez Hilton and Bravo's own Sheree Whitfield to musician Adam O'Rourke!

Each week, we're asking Patti to weigh in on every episode in her exclusive vlog. She'll tackle the good (ditching the douche), the bad (AJ standing up his second date)—and the hilarious (did Patti just say she loves porn?!). 

This week, she talks about finding the perfect match for The Bachelor's infamous Jesse Kovacs, Candace Smith's pal and perfectionist AJ Johnson and more. Check out the latest episode vlog below and watch past episodes here.

This was a fun week I had two clients, AJ Johnson from Chicagolicious and Jesse Kovacs -- he’s been on several versions of The Bachelor.

I’ll start with AJ: he wants the perfect partner in business, life and love. Candace tells me he is a control freak and she is not kidding. I call him Mr. Cuffington because he likes putting girls in cuffs and he wants to control their look, what they say, how they act. He is a mess, but he is a nice guy. If he continues to put the cuffs on the girls he’s going to drive down lonely lane. I have an idea of how I’m going to do this mixer, but at first I introduce AJ to a fellow stylist mister blow out himself Jonathan Anton. He is in the same business as AJ and he’s had a lot of success.

On to my other client, when I meet Jesse Kovacs he’s nice and he’s handsome, so why does he have trouble finding love? Because he has a terrible reputation. He just wants to meet a nice girl who likes him for who he is and isn’t pre-judging him, but I need to get deeper. He knows he’s screwed up and he’s willing to change.

Jesse Kovacs is nice and he’s handsome, so why does he have trouble finding love? Because he has a terrible reputation.


For both these guys I want to do a special mixer. In this mixer were going to play a little game and my clients aren’t going to be able to see the girls. This works out great and AJ whittles his choice down to beautiful pageant girl Melissa and Jesse chooses cute little Kate.

AJ takes Melissa on a very romantic day of wine tasting in Malibu, they even get to stomp around in the grapes and they ended up having dinner at Geoffrey’s overlooking the water. I hope they will see each other again and I know

AJ has learned a lot from this.

Jesse also had some success. He and Kate had a playful date go-kart racing and I think they really hit it off, we’ll see. But I think both of my guys have learned a lot about themselves and about love.
