We’ve made a bunch of hay already this season about the cosmetic changes in Patti’s staff on Bravo’s “The Millionaire Matchmaker”. The old unkempt staff might not have been TV friendly, but at least they look real. The new staff feels like three rejects from a LA tampon commercial. (Reminder that everyone needs to watch “Hello Ladies” on HBO). They’re all too coiffed and polished for my tastes. All that’s missing is for one of them to release a auto-tuned dance track. Early on in tonight’s all new episode even Patti seems to notice cracks in the buffed faces of her new staff.
After Patti’s done threatening she moves on to the actual matchmaking. The Bravo synopsis let’s us know there a tie-in afoot with tonight’s episode.
Courtney Kerr is a fashion blogger, TV host, and star of Bravo’s Courtney Loves Dallas. She’s stuck in her past relationships and needs to move forward to find love. Patti’s second client this week is Stefan Dahlqvist, a 39-year-old owner of a successful Norwegian clothing line.
Bravo continues to try to shove Courtney Kerr down our throats. The world just isn’t interesting in her or Dallas, but yet Bravo won’t let up. One of the keys to Courtney is her single dating situation, so I doubt Patti will find her love. Wouldn’t that be the end of her show? Besides Courtney there is Stefan. Stefan is a guy who likes the color pink, and that’s enough evidence for Patti to question his sexuality. What millionaire wouldn’t give his right eye to get the chance for Patti to embarrass them on TV? That’s the key to her success. Here’s a preview of Patti laying down the law with Stefan over his favorite color.
So far Patti hasn’t been very successful in finding love for her clients this season. Last week’s episode with Kim Kardashian’s best friend, Jonathan Cheban, was a total failure, but I think his date lacked one crucial component for success. Either way Patti needs to find someone love soon or risk losing all credibility. Or rather whatever shred of credibility she has left.
