About Millionaire Matchmaker:
The Millionaire Matchmaker follows Patty Stanger and her dogged staff as they give their big-bucks clients complete transformations with the help of personal shoppers, date coaches and therapists. In each episode, two wealthy clients are set up on dates hand-picked by Stanger based upon their beauty and intelligence. Stanger’s passion for her work is intense – she truly feels this is her life’s calling. An experienced third-generation matchmaker, Stanger founded her company Millionaire’s Club in January 2000. Previously, Stanger was the Director of Marketing for Great Expectations, the largest and oldest dating service in the United States. Her bluntness has made her infamous – “redheads are not the freshest produce in the aisle,” she famously said in season one – but Stanger’s big heart shines through with her genuine interest to find true love for her demanding and ever-growing clientele.
