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: Patti Melts and Bravo Reunions

Patti dishes on kicking a UFC fighter to the curb and enlisting Reza Farahan and Alexia Echevarria to help find Marysol Patton's sexy match.

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 Stephanie Pratt and Larry Birkhead to Bravo's own Chris Manzo!

Each week, we're asking Patti to weigh in on every episode in her exclusive vlog. She'll tackle the good (Reza Farahan and Alexia Echevarria are in the clubhouse!), the bad (did Luke Rockhold really just carress Candace?!)—and the hilarious (did we mention Reza was here?). 

This week, she talks about setting up Real Miami Housewife Marysol Patton, kicking out UFC fighter Luke and more. Check out the latest episode vlog below and watch past episodes here.

This week I had two great clients. First up was Marysol Patton who you know from The Real Housewives, but she’s been a friend of mine for years. Her problem is confidence and she’s a little gun shy. As a woman that’s getting older she’s wondering "Will I ever find the one?" This is what I’m good at so I told her to bring some friends. So she chose Alexia who’s from her show The Real Housewives of Miami and Reza from Shahs of Sunset. And I’m like it’s a Bravo reunion, they were great!  Her main problem is that she doesn’t think she’s pretty which she is by the way.

My other client was an athlete, Luke Rockhold from the UFC, super hot. You know how I feel about athletes. The world caters to them, they get girls served up on a platter and it’s hard to change them unless they really want to change.

I decided to throw a huge sangria mixer with my new wine P.S.: Match. Reza and Alexia helped me find some really great guys, guys that had solid careers, that weren’t stuck in one place and might be perfect gentleman for Marysol.

Finally she picks restaurant owner Scott, a little quite but sweet and you can really tell he likes her. Then it comes to picking girls for Luke. We go through a whole bunch of hotties, but here’s the problem I don’t think Luke is in it for the long haul. I’m picking girls that are great for relationships and I think he’s looking for the booty call.

He’s hitting on my mixologist, Kara, who was there to help me make the sangria!     

He takes Kara out on something really romantic, jet skiing. Which would be fine, but it’s her getting into a bathing suit so he can see what she looks like. He just wants to get laid and when he comes back to the office I yell at him, go Matchmaker postal on him.

He just wants to get laid and when he comes back to the office I yell at him, go Matchmaker postal on him.

Thankfully Marysol had the date of her life. He’s actually romantic and takes her on a beautiful helicopter ride over the city, following up with wine tasting where they get to talk and get to know one another. Scott had it from the moment he saw her because next thing you know little shy Marysol is sticking around the corner kissing him. Fantastic! Go Scott, go team!
