Millionaire Matchmaker

3 Contestants in the Millionaire Matchmaker Hall of Fame

Millionaire Matchmaker hall of fameThere was the Prince, The Self-Help Gurus and, of course, Shauna. We have seen it all come across our doorstep, driven by hopes of finding a life partner, and it’s certainly been an experience for both me and everybody on the Millionaire Matchmaker team.

After five seasons, going on six, it’s hard to pick just three Hall of Fame contestants, but these three go down in history. 

Of course Prince “charming” had a big head and a mouth to match…

Hello? What woman doesn’t dream of a finding a prince? When Prince Max, who is from one of the oldest royal families in Europe, came on the show, hearts dropped… until he opened his mouth. Max was a great looking guy with a lot to offer a woman, but — and this is a big “but” — he couldn’t stop talking about himself! His extensive bragging about his fabulous life and getting women made me wonder: Was his ambition focused on the right thing?

Who wouldn’t be turned off — right, ladies? It was hard to watch him interact with his dates without wanting to step in and put a stop to them. It wasn’t hard to figure out why he had been having trouble finding someone to settle down with. Men, are you listening?

The self-help gurus just needed to flip the tables 

During the same season, we had two self-help gurus seek us out for help with finding their perfect matches. Steve’s bad habit of dating the wrong women took us through a special look to his past to see where and why he couldn’t date anybody appropriate. It was a lot of work! Doing that dirty work can help you, like it did Steve, to find the deeper meaning of an unhealed wound from your past. Address it and learn from it.

And Gary’s mile-long list of endless must-haves? With such unrealistic expectations, his troubles in finding love were obvious. He needed to understand that part of loving people is to love them for who they are.

Runaway millionaire running from reality

How can we forget Shauna from season two? Between her diva behavior and problem with dating age-appropriate men that had to look perfect, it was easy to read between the lines. Finding Mr. Right would be a challenge. We set out to free her from her set idea that youth and beauty meant a perfect match — but there was no way to prepare for the moment she literally took one look at her date and ran as fast as possible back into the hotel, leaving her Louboutin heel behind. Her date — as well as the rest of us — was appalled. That was an episode to remember for sure.

    He visto hoy por primera vez su programa de tv en España, lo encuentro bastante interesante aunque yo no entro por la edad de las personas que salen en el.
    Me gustaria saber si tiene algo parecido en España,llevo algún tiempo buscando pareja y realmene en los sitios donde estoy registrada no me dicen mucho. Cuando encuentra a alguien siempre dice en su perfil: viajo por el mundo… no me importa de donde sea… dispuesto a desplazarme… y al final nadie viene, piden que te desplaces( que no suelo hacer)y se termina la comunicación, creo que se deberia de organizar alguna cita generalizada en diferentes paises para los miembros que quieran acudir. Si se organiza en España, buscar un sitio conocido internacionalmente y que todos deseaan conocer como puede ser Marbella, Sotogrande etc. Muchos dicen que disponen de sus aviones etc… pues que lo usen y conozcan que las españolas tambien valemos y muchas esteremos dispuestas a vivir en otro pais, siempre que la chispa, la conexción, y la quimica salte. Esperemos que tengamos suerte.

    OMG I remember Shauna’s episode! I do not even want to focus on her because she does not even DESERVE the attention! I felt so bad for her date and he was SO SWEET, LEVEL HEADED AND GOOD LOOKING and IM ONLY 25! Being honest with yourself is one thing but that was beyond rude. I don’t see how anyone could do that to someone who went and got them a dress (which I dont think he should have done that because he didn’t know her size but the thought was sweet) limo and flowers. She could have at least gave him a chance. But he was WAYY too good of a person for her Patty. I still remember his handsome face AND body! When she ran off and he was sitting there looking so confused but still remained calm I wanted to go into the tv and take her place! He reminded me of Richard Giere (sp) and any lady would be lucky to have him! You should have him on the show!

    Where’s my comment?! UGH anyway ill type it again just not so much. I am not going to focus on the crazy shauna but on that wonderful, laid back, sweet, handsome guy you hard the nerve to set her up with! He was way to good of a person for her. Im only 25 and anyone who doesn’t find that man attractive must be gay!

    Kina,

    AGREED! I am 29 (I was 26 or 27 when Shauna’s episode aired) and I yelled at the television, “I would date him!” To be clear, I am in the process of earning a Ph.D, I speak 8 languages, I am a member of Mensa (170 I.Q.), I am a fantastic cook, I am good with kids, and I do modelling and bikini/fitness modelling on the side. I can afford to be picky when it comes to men, and I definitely thought he was a CATCH.

    Shauna is ugly on the outside AND the inside, and she is going to either end up alone or paying for a boy-toy who will only be around until the money runs out.
