You might think that with Valentine’s Day over, the life of Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger becomes, well, boring. But instead, the love-focused entrepreneur is taking on new challenges, ranging from talk show host Dr. Mehmet Oz to a UFC fighter to a former star on the Bachelor. Who’s the biggest challenge of them all? It just might be Jesse Kovacs, who bounced through three different Bachelor franchise shows, reported E! News.
A wine maker, Jesse competed on The Bachelorette, Bachelor Pad, and Bachelor in Paradise. Now, although Patti is ready to take him on, she first informs him of what she really thinks.
“I think Jesse is a really good-looking guy,” muses Patti. “He doesn’t know how to be a gentleman. He’s being a total a**. I need to get deeper with him so that he could make the first step toward a relationship.”
So is Jesse willing to change? Yes, he insists.
“[I want] another person’s perspective on what I’m doing wrong, constructive criticism, trying some new, tapping into something different,” said the would-be romancer.
But Patti is familiar with challenging men in need of her help. As the Inquisitr reported, she also took on a mixed martial arts (MMA) UFC fighter and champ, Luke Rockhold.
At the time, Stanger expressed her hesitations about his sincerity in pursuing love rather than focusing on fighting.
“In my sport you have to be so focused, and you kind of put your blinders on to the outside world,” Luke explained to Patti.
“I’ve sacrificed everything, and it’s all to be the best in the world.”
But after he made some vulgar comments to his prospective date and then groped one of her employees, Patti tossed him out the door of her Millionaire Club.
Now, however, Rockhold is putting up a good defense, according to TMZ. He contends that he has now succeeded in matching himself to one of Patti’s co-stars.
In addition, Luke says that after they saw the show, women have sought him out through social media to offer themselves as his love match.
So with all those stressful situations, does Patti have any health problems? Yes, she told Dr. Mehmet Oz when she appeared on his talk show this week.
After losing 30 pounds successfully with what she described as a Paleo-style diet with the addition of dark chocolate, Patti suddenly gained back 15 pounds. She subsequently learned that she had thyroid disease.
Now, with the help of medication, she has restored her energy level, which also was impacted by her thyroid condition. Dr. Oz noted that thyroid disease more frequently occurs in women.
