Patti Stanger returns in July with 'Million Dollar Matchmaker' on WEtv
Patti Stanger is ready for you to meet her millionaires again.
The otuspoken love guru, who starred in Bravo’s The Millionaire Matchmaker, has returned to reality TV to help rich people find true romance — or at least suitable arm candy — with the new WEtv series Million Dollar Matchmaker.
Debuting July 8 at 10 p.m. ET, the show will feature two proudly rich clients checking into Harrah’s Resort Southern California, where “they quickly, and unwittingly, embark on their ‘love lesson,’ custom tailored challenges designed by Patti and her team to reveal what they are doing wrong,” weTV announced Tuesday. Stanger then meets with the millionaires, one-on-one, to asses their surprise date before they are introduced to two matches. The love-hungry millionaires will include clients that Stanger has worked with in the past through the Millionaire’s Club as well as new ones.
Stanger is bringing back some of her old staff to help load Cupid’s arrows into her quiver, including Candace Smith, the former former beauty queen and Survivor contestant who holds law and psychology degrees, the ever-optimistic FindingCupid.com founder David Cruz, and Destin Pfaff and Rachel Federoff, the couple who worked (and clashed) with Stanger on the first six seasons of Millionaire Matchmaker. That show ran for eight seasons from 2008 to 2015 before Stanger announced last year that she was leaving Bravo and “moving to a wonderful new network.”
