    I was just thinking that I probably need to amend my own post b/c most of the people on the show could probably be considered opportunists. Although, the Jewish woman that the Christian man chose just seemed more obvious (to me).

    Jimmy D.'s chosen date was an opportunist pig. I couldn't believe that she went so far as to ask for money. And if Jimmy D. has the need to have 2 huge bodyguards around him at all times, how much more of a "steer clear" warning do you need???

    And, as a Sopranos junkie, who did Patti think that Christian-guy looked like that her staff agreed with her? I didn't see it.

    I didn't see it, either. Thought she might possibly be referring to Tony himself, but he didn't look like James Gandolfini to me. Also a Sopranos junkie here ... couldn't think of another character he looked like even remotely.

    The Jewish woman said she was brought by an invited friend, and Patti, after making somewhat of a fuss, then acknowledged that she tells the women they can bring a friend, which was the first time I heard about that being the case, especially since we always see her grilling the potential dates for the mixers.

    Re: Millionaire Matchmaker

    In the end credits I caught this: "Matchmaker services are given gratis to Millionaire clients". So Bravo openly admits, if you're on this show, you don't pay the 25K fee. I don't have the tech to get a screen cap or I would post it.

    I saw that, too. Why is it that people who can afford the most always seem to spend the least...and vice versa?

    Re: Millionaire Matchmaker

    I haven't seen the show for a while. Are you saying Patti actually charges millionaires $25k for her services as a madam, excuse me, matchmaker?!

    I'm sure the people on the show are not typical clients for Patti - they're probably chosen because they'll make good tv and not because they're eager to find their perfect partner. She wouldn't still be in business if every client was a giant train wreck and the show wouldn't still be on the air if the clients were low-drama "normal" people who listened to Patti.

    I loved how at the end of the episode, they made it sound like Jimmy D's date was never heard from again, like EVER, by anyone.

    The previews show Mark returning - the guy Shaunna (the salon owner who only wanted to date younger guys) bagged on. Looks like he and Patti kind of get into it.

    Holy moley at the holier-than-thou people

    I was quite aghast at Doug criticizing David for his choice of food to eat for dinner.
    I had never before heard of any particular kind of food as being "eco-friendly" (or not, in this case).

    Bruce had too much distance to cover in going for the kiss with Nicole lol.
    He should have moved closer to her first, or pulled her in, and maybe his chances would've been better.
    Where they were sitting relative to each other probably weren't the best positions for that.

    It was also curiously interesting that Patty felt the need to mention the "no sex before monogamy" rule to Nicole when they first met, at least in the way it was presented.
    Nicole didn't seem like someone with much interest in pursuing sex. Her reactions to Patty suggested that she's not very adventurous sexually.
