Patti's Vlog: Everyone Gets a Valentine!

Patti vlogs on matching presidential Matt and country boy Adam while making sure no dater was alone on Valentine’s.

Read Patti's full transcript after the jump!

OK, this was a great week. It’s the week before Valentine’s Day, and if you’re a matchmaker this can be the best time of the year. Love is in the air and I’m helping many make it happen. I even have a great idea for the mixer this year. We’re going to make it a Red Ball, a huge great Valentine’s Day themed mixer, with all the red dresses from my friends at Rent the Runway. And best of all, nobody goes without a date -- nobody! My millionaires get to pick two girls and for the girls who don’t get picked, I have guys for them to mingle with. Patti saves Valentine’s Day.

Ok back to the beginning, my two young clients this week are Matt Brooks and Adam Winters. Matt is handsome, has an internet marketing company, oh, and he looks exactly like a young Barack Obama. The President is in. So his problem isn’t that he can’t find a girl, his problem is he’s always in a new relationship. I’ve seen this before, serial monogamy. He’s afraid to be alone so he’s always in the relationship, but he doesn’t know how to pick the one. He jumps right in. And then he finds he hadn’t chosen right, and he breaks up. This is ridiculous. This could go on for years. It’s got to stop.


Serial monogamists, once they know what their problem is -- they have to go slow, they have to get to know the girl. They can’t just go with instinct because their instincts are off. They have to carefully select someone and then cool their jets while they’re really evaluating if they’re the right person them. I can help because I’m handpicking appropriate girls for Mr. Matt. So if he follows my advice and takes it slow and gets to know her, he find he can get the girl of his dreams, who he can really connect and communicate with. He has a chance of a lasting relationship.

Meanwhile, my other client is a young Southern boy from Tennessee. I call him “the Beverly Hillbilly” because like on the TV show, he’s just picked up and moved to Beverly Hills. Well, he made a lot of money in green transportation. He’s a smart kid, Adam. The problem is he isn’t sure what he wants. He made his money out in LA, the big city, but his heart is back in Tennessee. So he needs a modern city girl who also has one foot planted in the country.



Adam doesn’t believe me, but that kind of girl does exist out here. You just have to find them. He’s come to the right place. He just has to be serious for a minute and show them who he really is. He talks the big talk, like I want a woman to cook for me. I think basically he’s full of crap with that. He’s really a sweetheart inside. So we’ll see which Adam shows up at the mixer.

So we throw a big Red Ball, and it’s just beautiful. My assistant David decorated it, and it looks great. And all the girls are in their Rent the Runway dresses, it’s fantastic. Instead of mini dates, we have mini dances! I even invited my boyfriend David to come and he and I have a slow dance on the dance floor.

Matt does a really good job. I can see him out there really trying to get under the hood of the car and get to know the girls. In the end, he picks a beautiful girl named Emily, who was my favorite for him. They’re both smart and young, and really have a great connection.

Adam picks a really great girl, Kate. She doesn’t fall for his Southern stupid bulls---. She gets right down to his personality and he is smitten. And you know what? On the inside, she’s just as country as she is. Go figure! Patti wins again!

At the end of the mixer, as we promised, all the girls who weren’t picked get to mingle with all the single guys my staff and I invited. Everyone dances the night away. We had a great time and my millionaires ended up with their great dates.

Matt pulled out all the stops and he takes Emily to a chocolate factory and they make their own chocolates. He then has a beautiful dinner set up right in their Valentine’s Day candy showroom and I know they kissed at the end. They are doing great. I really Matt is setting this up for success. He’s not in it just to be dating, but to find someone that he can communicate with. I see them going very far with this one.

Adam almost blew it with the date. He took her to the zoo for a tour of the mating habits of wild animals. And you know what? She loved it. Maybe it’s not for me, but these two country bumpkins had a great time. Either way, he planned right and had flowers and a great romantic dinner. The two really got along great. Adam got a kiss as well and they’re going out again!

So two matches this week. What does that mean? One piece of advice: don’t f--- with a matchmaker around Valentine’s Day.

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!
