Classy matchmaking, all classy-like


I somehow caught most of this season of the new show "Millionaire Matchmaker" this weekend on Bravo. If you haven't had the pleasure, here's a quick synopsis: various rich d-bags join a service that sets them up with young girls who apparently just want to marry rich. And of course, dramedy ensues. And trainwrecks, of course. While I'm deeply compelled to keep watching, I do have a few questions.

1. Who are these guys who've found a way to make millions but are total retards when it comes to finding women? Ask your friends. Join the country club. Take yachting lessons. Hang out with other rich people and their friends. Don't go on a tv show to meet women who prolly would get the boot from eHarmony for not having 29 interesting characteristics let alone the ability to answer questions about them.

2. Which brings me to the chicks. What's up, ladies? Seems to me if you wanna cut to the front of the line and marry a rich dude you should have something to offer. A talent, perhaps. You play piano or the harpsichord or you're an expert ballroom dancer. Maybe you're cultured, well-mannered and educated in the fine arts. Or maybe you don't ask things like "you eat raw fish" Yeah, they do. It's called being rich. They eat lots of weird stuff. A lot of these girls wouldn't impress poor guys, let alone guys with receding hairlines, man blouses and height issues—I mean millionaires.

The finale's tomorrow night.

I saw one episode of this show and it was fascinating. However, I think these guys are looking for only one set of talents.

That's the kicker: a lot of the girls aren't even that beautiful. Seems to me if you wanna be a trophy wife, you need to look the part.

No one wants a "participant ribbon wife", if you know what I mean.

Anyone catch the finale? A dude asks a chick to marry him on their FIRST DATE!

Which only begs the question: who are these people?

I'm sure you will be amazed to find out that I have also seen the entire season. I love the episode when the boss lady freaks out because one of her "daughters" asks for a raise. And, yes, I did see the finale. And I couldn't believe the girl actually said YES! I need to move to LA and get in on this!
