PATTI STANGER IS MOVING TO WE TV…. AND SHE’S BRINGING ALL HER CLIENTS’ BAGGAGE

MILLION DOLLAR MATCHMAKER PREMIERES JULY 8

Fan Favorite Power Couple Destin and Rachel Return to the Millionaire’s Club Team

NEW YORK, NY, MAY 31, 2016 — The world’s most renowned matchmaker and favorite love guru,

Patti Stanger, returns with millionaires from her past and present as they bring their relationship problems and issues to the exclusive “Millionaire’s Club” for a final chance at finding love in the new WE tv series, “Million Dollar Matchmaker, premiering Friday, July 8 at 10:00 pm ET/PT. In an effort to see if love will once and for all prevail, Patti helps some of her unmatchable millionaires….and if Patti can’t help them find love by the end of their stay, no one can!

Each episode features two wealthy clients checking into the breathtaking luxury property in North County San Diego, Harrah’s Resort Southern California, where they quickly, and unwittingly, embark on their “love lesson,” custom tailored challenges designed by Patti and her team to reveal what they are doing wrong. Patti then meets one-on-one with each millionaire for a “reality check”, an in-depth review of his or her surprise date, where she delivers her particular brand of tough love, with sometimes brutally honest feedback. Finally, Patti will introduce each high-profile client to her two matches. If all goes well, the millionaire and his or her potential match will be on their way to happily ever after.

Rounding out the Millionaire’s Club team of experts is Candace (“The Flirt”), a graduate of Northwestern University School of Law, who also holds a degree in psychology. Candace is a natural when it comes to pairing partners…when the former beauty queen is not keeping the men for herself! David, founder of FindingCupid.com and proclaimed “Romance Enthusiast”, brings his passion for love and belief that everyone deserves happiness to the Club. And after a brief respite from the club, Destin and Rachel (“The Power Couple”) are ready to return in order to help big-bucks clients find true love. This dynamic duo and fan favorite couple from Patti’s past are a dream team…when they aren’t butting heads.
