Is anyone else watching The Millionaire Matchmaker on Bravo? How about: is anyone else watching The Millionaire Matchmaker on Bravo six months after the first season originally aired even though you’ve already seen all the episodes three times?
Bossy, put your hand down.
The focus of this docudrama is Patti
Stranger Stanger, who was Director of Marketing for the dating service Great Expectations before realizing there was a hole in the dating service market, and that hole went a little something like this: millionaire men are willing to pay a cross-eyed matchmaker a boatload of money in exchange for outdated advice and an introduction to a girl who only wants you for your checking account.
Here’s how it works: women who want to be a part of the Millionaire’s Club database audition for Patti Stanger, which entails parading around Patti’s office in plunging necklines and stiletto heels because Patti Stanger only wants Millionaire Club women who are smart. Smart with ironed hair.
And the millionaires gain membership to the Millionaire’s Club only after they throw out their previous misconceptions about dating, such as One Must Reveal One’s True Personality.
Many of the millionaires have a history of falling victim to their own missteps, such as selecting women who are below their age range. The men confess they are ready to settle down with a mature someone in her thirties or forties.
Until Patti introduces the millionaire to a room full of potential dates in their thirties and forties and then the millionaire is all, “How about that 23-year-old over there? The one with the stiletto heels and ironed hair? Because some girls at 23 are old souls.”
The Millionaire Matchmaker will launch its second season soon, so it’s not too late to climb aboard the Crazy Train.
