On tonight's Bravo episode of "Millionaire Matchmaker," Patty Stanger had the challenge of setting up two millionaires with suitable mates. One is Yigit Pura, a pastry chef; the other is Johnny Simon a wealthy man who rides in a limo everywhere he goes.
As the episode opens, Patty is conducting a seminar giving advice to prospective women who are looking for the right man.
The first millionaire is an MIT, or a millionaire in training. Yigit is the winner of "Top Chef: Just Desserts." He is 31 and gay and looking for the right guy. He is writing a book, and plans to open his own pastry shop and take it national. Patty realizes that new-found wealth are often hard to handle, but will give him all the help along with her assistants, Rachel Federoff and Destin Jude Pfaff.
Johnny Simon lives on his yacht with his best friend, his German shepherd. Besides his yacht, he rides around in an old stretch limo as he sits in the back with his dog. He is 47 years old and wants a blond woman who wants to have kids. Johnny picked up Patty in his limo, without his dog, and rode around as Patty interviewed him. Besides his boat, he has a home in Long Beach and is in the debt settlement industry with a net worth of about three million. As Patty questions his past eight-year relationship, he shies away from direct questioning. Patty sets him straight, that he must be completely honest, or she cannot help him. Try as she may, she cannot get him to open up. Patty told him that his love chakra is closed and unless it opens, he will never find love. She gives him the rules of the mixer, and if he listens, he just may find true love.
Patty went to Yigit's pastry shop, "Tout Sweet," to interview him. He does not plan on becoming anyone's sugar daddy with his new-found wealth, but is looking for true love and hopes to get married and have kids in about two years. He is building his empire and handing Patty the reins to find him love.
The interviews start, and the gays come in, but one is not gay and gets the boot immediately. The women are great prospects, and the mixer is set at a great club called "Hemmingway's." It is a quiz show atmosphere, and the millionaires get to ask the questions to the prospects without seeing them. They each chose two people for their mini dates.
When Yigit met Gaspar, who was Patty's first choice for him, they seemed to hit if off immediately for their creativity. One point in Gaspar's favor; he recognized Yigit immediately from television.
Johnny chose Kristi, a comedian who made him laugh, and he seemed to let his guard down with her as her off-the-wall humor made him laugh.
Next Yigit met Tyler, who did not know about him. Tyler has been in Los Angeles for five months and has yet to get to the beach, and if they date, would like to go there.
Next, Johnny met Tamara. She asked him questions about himself. She told him that she loved boats and enjoyed being on the water.
Johnny chose Tamara and Yigit chose Gaspar and Patty felt like they hose the perfect person for them.
Johnny took Tamara out on his boat, and the day couldn't be nicer. He gave her a captain's hat and let her steer the boat. They got to know each other and Klaus; his dog even liked her. As they docked, they went to dinner. Johnny and Tamara had a great dinner and seemed to be a perfect match. They each shared information about themselves willingly. They held hands during dinner and they kissed. They plan to do this again.
Yigit and Gaspar went to the L.A. Gay and Lesbian Center to make a cake. Gaspar did a good job and when Yigit accidentally cut himself, he found what a gentle and caring soul he was. They then went to dinner. Gaspar gave Yigit a gift; it was his favorite; Nutella.
Tamara called Patty to tell her how much she liked Johnny and the date. Patty knows that his chakra is open, and she has great vibes from him.
Gaspar got a call from Patty, but no kiss. Yigit then brought treats to Patty and her gang. She knows he did not kill Gaspar and gave him a bit of a reprimand to seize the moment. Yigit called Gaspar to invite him to San Francisco, but may have waited too long because the two have not gotten together.
Johnny and Tamara have been together nearly every night, and Klaus have given his approval thanks to Patty, "The Millionaire Matchmaker."
