What has happened to Bravo’s “The Millionaire Matchmaker”? It feels like this season the show got shot up with too much botox. All of the lines and imperfections that made the show interesting have been buffed out from the camera. The old staff used to feature bad facial hair and awkward tattoo placement. The seventh season has introduced us to a new crew who seem to have stepped out of an open call for a H&M photo shoot. One of the new staff even appeared on the show before, which means he’s easily manipulated by the show’s producers.
This is the time when you ask why anyone would continue to watch “The Millionaire Matchmaker” if the show is getting so bad. Well the answer lies in the weekly creeps that walk through Patti’s door. They continue to be a great mix of stunted and tragic, and tonight’s episode pins the creep meter. Check out the synopsis of tonight’s episode from Bravo for more info about tonight’s millionaires.
Kim Kardashian’s BFF Jonathan Cheban is a 39 year-old entrepreneur living in New York and Miami, who says he’s ready to let Patti set him up. Patti’s second millionaire this week is Eric Berman. He’s a 41 year-old entrepreneur who’s always looking for the bigger better deal.
Patti will have her hands full trying to find Cheban the right woman. Most of us might remember Cheban from his time on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians”. My favorite plot line he was involved in on that show is when Kris Humphries insulted him by assuming Cheban was gay. How could anyone think that someone who spends all his time shopping with Kim Kardashian could be gay? Cheban and the nose he bought are going to need extra attention from Patti.
Here’s Patti meeting with Johnathan Cheban for the first time, and Patti too seems shocked to find out he’s looking to date women on the show. Also note how much time is devoted to discussing Kim’s wonderful new life. Cheban is like the town crier for the Kardashians.
Patti tackles Cheban and more on an all new episode of “The Millionaire Matchmaker” tonight on Bravo. Maybe by next week I will have a better grasp on why Patti’s fiance reminds me of a passed over “Hellboy” character.
