Irony at its best, “Millionaire Matchmaker’s” Patti Stanger says she isn’t attracted to money.
“I have to be sexually attracted,” she said during a conference call on Tuesday. “I’m a looks girl.”
And finding someone with both looks and money is no easy task, she added.
“I think I’d like to date a millionaire, but I never am attracted to my clients. … I don’t tend to date millionaires,” she said, noting that she would have no qualms about doing so off-camera.
However, viewers will get to see the matchmaker in action when she participates in her own mixer on episode 13.
“I am a double Gemini - soft, subdued and submissive when I date,” she said. “A sweeter Patti.”
Stanger said people will be surprised to see her behave in such a way after watching her in work-mode for so long.
Someone else who’s not too keen about dating on cable TV is celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, who makes a cameo on the show this season.
“I wanted Perez to date, but he didn’t want to do it on-camera,” Stanger said. “He really is different. We both got single and lost weight and got nicer. People say I don’t yell as much this season.”
Other guest stars include Jenny McCarthy, one of Stanger’s “first famous friends,” and Tori Spelling.
Will you tune in when “Millionaire Matchmaker” is back on Bravo Monday?
