Sarcastic Cheban and a 'Man-diego' Bachelor

Patti discusses matching know-it-all Jonathan Cheban and Eric Berman, who's always looking for the next best girl.

Read Patti's full transcript after the jump:

My first client this week is my friend, Jonathan Cheban, he does PR and has a bunch of companies he invests in, but most people know him as Kim Kardashian's best friend. Since he loves fashion, loves looking good, I thought, this is the perfect time in his life for me to fix him up.  Now's my chance.

Of course, I can always use the opportunity to take Jonathan down a notch. He's sarcastic and always knows it all. Well, if he knew it all, he'd have a long term girlfriend or relationship by now.

Johnathan came in and we talked it out. I don't know if I can keep him from being sarcastic and know-it-all, but maybe I can keep him quiet long enough to meet a girl who might like him for him.

My other client was from 'Man-diego,' Eric Berman. He has the typical problem I see when a guy has money and think's he's the big fish in a little pond. He's got bigger, better deal syndrome. Everyone he dates he thinks there's someone better right around the corner.

 

Because Jonathan likes a high class life style, and I wanted to spruce Eric up, me and my new team decided to throw a black tie mixer at The Marq in Hollywood. This was great. The guys were in black, my team was in tuxes and dresses, and for the girls, we got my friends at Rent the Runway to overnight us a bunch of long formal dresses. And the mixer was fabulous.

I also did a mixer a little differently this time. I didn't want those guys holding court like usual, so I had them meet the girls one on one and make their decisions for a master date afterword. I think it worked well, they're both so used to talking to crowds of women this made them stop and think. And it worked really well.

Jonathan took his date to Aventine in LA, a hot spot restaurant; cleared it out and they got to know each other and even found out she is studying to be a forensics expert. I'm glad he didn't just talk through the whole thing.

Eric had a great date with Ashley, who's also from San Diego. They went to Del Mar race track, met his horse, watched the races before going to a beautiful dinner at a restaurant he is an investor in. So the good news is he didn't bigger, better deal it; he didn't look at other women. But he also didn't go in for the big kiss. I think he could have turned this around with Ashley if he had gone in for the big kiss. I wanted him to do it and I know next time he'll seal the deal. It's not sex it's kissing and a girl needs to feel it if she's gonna like you.

Making a Match: Beauty, Bikinis and Breaking The Rules

Patti dishes on helping Julissa Bermudez pick the right guys and why she almost had to throw Adam O'Rourke out!

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 Sonja Morgan to rap legend Romeo Miller, aka Lil' Romeo!

Each week, we're asking Patti to weigh in on every episode in her exclusive vlog. She'll tackle everything from picking the right guy to calling vs. texting. Hint: real men call. 

This week, she talks about finding Mr. Right for gorgeous TV host Julissa Bermudez, teaching rocker Adam O'Rourke a lesson in starting over and more. Check out the latest episode vlog below and watch past episodes here.

I had really interesting clients this week. First up Julissa Bermudez, she is a TV host and she’s been on tons of networks all over the place she is drop dead gorgeous. I don’t know why she’s coming to me to find a relationship but I figure out right away it’s not about meeting the guy, it’s about meeting the right guy.

She is starting to realize that while the alpha guys are hot, they don’t really want her for her. She’s got to shake the habit of going with these alpha guys so I set her up with Tiffany Haddish who’s a famous comedian. She’s Arsenio’s sidekick, a no nonsense girl. She’s hot, she dates in Hollywood but she is not afraid to tell it how it is. Julissa gets it, Tiffany is smart.

My other client this week is Adam O'Rourke. He’s gotten to the point where he wanted to settle down and he wasn’t meeting any quality women, so he pretends to be a tough guy when he’s actually really nice. And I’m actually happy to set him up.

So we do some recruiting at the Leica Gallery in West Hollywood. A museum or a gallery is a great way to find young, sophisticated singles and we size up a bunch of guys and girls for a classy dinner mixer with Julissa and Adam.

The next day we introduce Julissa to four great guys and Adam to four great girls. They all sit down at the private club and get to know each other.

Julissa ends up picking a great guy named Sam; he’s a successful real estate entrepreneur. He is handsome but laidback and isn’t the guy who needs to be alpha all the time. If Julissa can get to like a guy like that, then she might be on her way to true love.

Meanwhile, Adam chooses a beautiful blonde named Hailey. She and Adam certainly have chemistry so I am happy with this choice.

Sam takes Julissa out to paint some pottery, which is actually a cool move, they get to talk and do something creative together. But then he also brings the romance with drinks and dinner at the Georgian at the beautiful Santa Monica Hotel. Julissa gets to feel cherished; I hope she likes the feeling.

Meanwhile, Adam makes his first mistake of the week; he invites Hailey back to his house. Usually I’d kick him out of the club for things like this, but it turns out he heard her say she’s never had her man cook for her and he wanted to fulfill her wish. Okay, I’ll let him slide on this one. He was a gentleman even when she put on her bikini to sunbathe in the backyard. Good job, Adam.

At the end I think Julissa learned to go for the guy who lets her be the star and Adam got a lesson in starting over. I hope they both take what they learned into the future. We will see.
