Patti on Man Children and Wounded Wallies

Patti spills on Episode 1's millionaires and their fabulous dates (even if one got a bit sea-sick).

Read full transcript after the jump.So I’m watching the video, and I’m seeing Brian, who is a man child, a British man child, and he’s got a perfect little Mummy, and all he cares about is what she thinks. He’s obsessed about everything about him—he’s Arthur. That’s all he is. He’s 100% Peter Pan meets Arthur, they had a baby, it’s Brian.

Then I go meet Daniel Negreanu, who is a world-class poker player. He’s the sweetest guy; there’s just one problem: he’s kind of what we call a wounded Wally. Girls have broken his heart in the past, he doesn’t trust very well, so he really needs my help.

So I go to meet Brian at Killer Shrimp, my favorite restaurant in Marina Del Rey, and who does Bryan bring but Mummy? All he cares about is what his mother thinks. He’s in his 40s; this is so creepy. So I start to listen and play along, and then I find out Mummy wants someone that “nurtures” him? How about he “nurtures” the girl, for once?

Then I meet Daniel at the Viceroy. Well, great guy, sweet disposition, he’s just been hurt so badly. But I realize I need an expert. So I call in Christopher Renstrom who is my expert on pattiknows.com; he’s the astrologer there, to do a reading and to teach him at the mixer what girls to pick and what girls to stay away from based on astrology.

So I’m out recruiting, and I need an Anna Faris-type, who’s got great personality, down-to-earth; really can play in Daniel’s league. Then for Brian, I’m looking for a Jessica Alba type. So I’m at Avalon, where we had the mixer, and Daniel’s starting to talk too much, he’s upstaging the girls, so we took him to the side. Dustin gave him a little 411, and he realized that he was just nervous. We put him back in, and then, low and behold, he picked Lindsay, who is the perfect Anna Faris type.

All of the sudden, Brian turns out to be a gentleman. He had a great time at the mixer, he got his teeth whitened, he’s doing fabulous, and he picked Jady. Perfect girl for him. Daniel chose a fabulous date. He took Lindsay to his hometown of Vegas. They went to Cirque del Soleil, behind the scenes, which is great, and then he took her to a wonderful restaurant. I have a feeling that these guys are really going to hit it off.

So Brian’s taking Katie to his boat, Morningwood, to Catalina. But there’s just one problem: the engine fails then Jady gets sick. BUT he was really a gentleman, he took care of her; he even brought her a little light meal to help keep her food down, and I thought this date would go south. But it turns out, both people like each other so it’s great because Bryan took out his nurturing side to help Jady recover.

Turns out Brian really is a softie inside.

This is all good: both people this week, Bryan and Daniel, did fabulous in my Club. They both get A’s.

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!
