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 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.
