'Millionaire Matchmaker's' Worst Client Ever Has a Drink Thrown in His Face (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Dec 29th 2010 5:45AM
Sometimes, it can be hard to tell when a date is going badly. Laughter, eye contact, body language ... these things can all convey different messages. But sometimes, it's not so hard to tell if a date is going badly. Like when you have a drink thrown in your face. That's usually a bad sign.

On the new 'Millionaire Matchmaker' (Tue., 9PM ET on Bravo), Patti Stanger encounters her "worst client ever" -- Matthew Siegal, heir to a multimillion-dollar fortune based on a "cookie diet." Yes, a cookie diet. Matt didn't have to work for his money; he inherited it instead. And he seems to think that he shouldn't have to work for love either.

Matthew is a "gaygist" -- an older gay man who only dates young men. Matt is in his 40s -- but wants to date 20-something dudes, so that he can mold them into his "ideal." So Patti sets up Matt with his perfect date: a young man named Rhett. But Rhett refuses to be "molded."

While having dinner with Rhett, Matt acts out in his typical arrogant style, tossing endless insults at his date. " ... Maybe you shouldn't talk so much," Rhett suggests. Matthew won't take the hint, and cackles horribly at the suggestion. In response, Rhett tosses a drink in his face. Then -- since there's still some liquid left in his glass -- Rhett does it again. Good one!

Which pretty much brings an end to the date. Matt reports back to Patti, following the disastrous dinner -- and gets this message from the matchmaker: "You don't deserve love. ... You're going to dry up as a little old crone in the nursing home." Whoa. Harsh. But possibly accurate.

Matt is a lonely little boy who is afraid of being alone and unloved. In order to protect himself, he puts up a front of being arrogant, nasty, bitchy, and entitled. It would be easy to hate him, but I instead feel sorry for him. He is going to be one of those old creepy men in a bar trying to hit on young men.........the ones we all fear to be. I hope he takes some of his fathers money (lets not forget it is his father, not him who created the company) and spend it where he really needs to....................................on therapy! Remember...how can you love others when you don't love yourself!

Okay, seriously, don't even justify this a-hole's animosity towards guys his age. I'm attracted to guys older than me, but definitely not him especially when he thinks it's okay for him to mention that he's not sexually attracted to me. They get tough-love advise like on their appearance because how are they gonna attract people when they themselves are not attractive. And the fact that this guy is 47, and he is only interested in screwing this 23 year old guy, and yet he came to the show supposedly looking for love, he definitely made himself look more of an a-hole.

Matt is a terrifying human being. I still can't believe that people as nasty and mean spiritied as him exist in this world. So sad! I walked away from that episode wanting to be as kind and polite and respectful as can be to others. Showing contempt and hate for others won't get us anywhere.

For the show's purposes, Patti offers her service gratis to the millionaires who appear on the show...so you get what you pay for (you get what you get paid for?). OK, drama is great for TV. But there are other matchmakers who have been in Manhattan longer (like Richard Easton et al.) who haven't sold themselves out to TV gimmicks to drum up business.

I can't believe what TV has become. If I hear the F word one more time I think I will scream.What is going on? We as a country are totally out of control.The first thing that has be brought into our lives is respect.That is what is lacking.I like Patty but come on,and those characters that are on the show-not fit for TV.

Matt does know what he wants for a guy and was pretty honest about it; however he shows it in an arrogant way... It is a fact that there are guys like him (not that young) who are into younger (or much younger) guys, and this preference may not be something that can be easily changed.

Rhett seems friendly at the beginning, but... he might overlooked the fact that some of his friendliness/funniess turned out to be uninvited familiarity to Matt. Matt's attitude can make many people uncomfortable for sure. Rhett's throwing wine on someone's face was not any better (kinda like catfights). Perhaps one main reason that Rhett was so upset was Matt honestly telling him that another young guy was most physically attractive, in response to Rhett's question of why Matt chose him for the first date. Unfortunately, due to jealousy, Rhett didn't let Matt finish the answer before the fighting... Well, you dig it out why can't you take it?

It can be fun to see male catfights plus Patti's tendancy to preach clients. No comments on Patti's attitude (whatever it is) since it is her show; she is responsible to make as much drama as possible to attract audience.

First off, i know matt and he is a nice guy, the trouble with relationships is becasue of people like Patty telling them they have to dress this way or act that way,you do this and you're not being yourself. I love how people like Patty, a single women who is 50 and wears clothes that a young 25 year old should wear tells people how to dress and act, that's as bad as Richard simmons, who was fat, telling people how to lose weight, and let's get real people,how pathetic are these people that need someone to teach them how to date. And to say that Matt wants a young guy, all gay men want a younger guy and all older men want a younger women and older women want a younger man. Get over it patty, you're on the way to becoming an old Maid

First off Mr. Top4btm (yeah right) from your post you come across about the same as Matt does so that's probably why you and he are friends. Secondly, yes these rich people have to be told how to dress, how to act, etc. Obviously what they're doing isn't working or they wouldn't need someone to fix them up.
You said the people who need to be taught are pathetic. Well your little buddy Matt is one of those pathetic people and what's even funnier is even with all the advice and fixing up he was still an unpleasant, bitchy queen.
I also hate to break it to you but no, not every older gay man wants a younger guy. I'm about the same age as Matt and I have no interest in twenty somethings. I want someone I can relate to and has got some life experience. Your buddy Matt wants a boy toy he can parade around to make himself feel superior. The only way he's going to get that is to pay for it. Matt is old, not particularly attractive, has bad fashion sense, is condescending and thinks because he got rich off of his father he's better then everyone else.

what a waste of time and space is matt. You should not be mad at him, but rather pity the loser. Are you surprised that he is alone. He does not have enough money to get someone to stick around so why be mad at the dude. That is the action of a sad, lonely and obviously disturbed individual so why be angry. Pity the fool
