“MILLIONAIRE Matchmaker” PATTI STANGER may be a whiz at finding love for other people, but she’s striking out at finding herself a match!
Casting for the new season of her hit Bravo show has just begun – and this time the production will focus on finding a mate for the series’ outspoken 51-year-old host.
But there’s one BIG problem – as soon as potential contestants find out they’ll be hooked up with Patti, they’re running for the hills!
“Producers have already begun auditioning potential suitors for the new season, but some of the guys want to jump ship when they find out Patti is the ‘millionaire,’ ” a source told The ENQUIRER.
“Patti doesn’t hold back her feelings when she doesn’t like someone – and it’s that sort of attitude that is cutting the auditions short.”
Patti’s unsuccessful quest to find “the one” has been touched upon during previous seasons of the reality hit. In Season 5, she began dating contestant John Matthews, but they wound up being just good friends.
And in 2010, her long-term relationship with real estate executive Andy Friedman fizzled out due to a lack of passion, according to Patti.
And things don’t look overly promising even with the new season revolving around her love life.
“Patti scares off a lot of men because she’s tough, mouthy and speaks her mind,” the source added.
“Several of the guys are scared that she’ll emasculate them on TV, and they’ll have a hard time finding future dates.
“They want a shot at finding love with a millionaire…but they don’t want to be humiliated by the matchmaker!”
