The Millionaire Matchmaker Isn't All That She Seems


Patti Stanger claims to be a "highly successful third generation matchmaker" who is responsible for at least three-hundred marriages and five-hundred relationships. Her television show tells another story.

Out of forty episodes totaling eighty-one dates, only eighteen dates could be considered a success. As if this date wasn't depressing enough, I've been generous, counting "success" as the match making it to a third date. Furthermore, if you are featured on the show you have a 14.8% chance of being berated and kicked out of the Millionaire's Club.

This data is in direct contradiction with her claims and her holier than thou approach relationships. This opening to the pilot episode is particularly ludicrous.

doesnt the fact that she calls herself a "3rd generation" matchmaker raise some bullshit flags?

did her grandmother pass down her matchmaking knowledge she learned in the old country?
