Last night’s Bravo episode of “Millionaire Matchmaker,” was titled “Julissa Bermudez & Adam O’Rourke.” As the episode begins, beautiful television host Julissa Bermudez, 31, born in the Dominican Republic and raised in Queens, New York is doing her video. She is looking for a guy, who does not only want her to be his arm candy, but someone she can be herself with. She is looking for the guy she can hold hands with for the rest of her life. Patti meets with her at a local bistro, and they talk about her past relationship with Larry Johnson. They did not have the same vision, and he wanted her barefoot and pregnant in Kansas City, Missouri. Since then she dated another guy for a whole year that had another girlfriend the entire time. Patti advised her to look for a man in a different way than she would look for a job; meaning to key down the confidence factor. In a man, she is looking for ambition and trustworthiness and the age of 30s to 40s. Her celebrity crush is Channing Tatum.
Adam O’Rourke, 33 is the CEO and founder of Snap Hunt, a mobile social media application and former rocker with the group 2Cents. He admitted that unless you are a rapper or Taylor Swift, the music business does not pay like it used to. He started two different companies in the last few years, lost 30 pounds and is feeling better than ever. Now that his life has some stability, he wants to settle down and have kids. His celebrity crush is Olivia Wilde.
Patti, Candace and David met the prospects at an art gallery this time, hoping to find the correct group of young business professionals, that both Julissa and Adam were seeking. Patti met again with Julissa and brought her friend along, comedian Tiffany Haddish; her act is allabout relationships. She stayed after Patti left to give Julissa more tips, some that really hit home for her.
At 41 Ocean Restaurant, Patti met with Julissa and Adam prior to the mixer. She found four guys for Julissa and four girls for Adam. The prospects each sat on one side of the table, as the millionaires sat alone on the other side. It was a great way of being the center of attraction as each millionaire became the center of attention. Patti dropped by each table and gave them pointers. Julissa liked Sam and Mahdi, and Adam liked Gabriella and Haley.
Adam chose Haley and took her up to the coast in a stretch limo. They both have been through the same types of things in past relationships. He took her to his Malibu home where she could lie out and tan in her bikini. He cooked her dinner while she enjoyed the view. They ate the meal he made, but she was in her bikini, as he was in his pants and long-sleeve shirt. He then took his guitar and sang to her as they both agreed to see each other again.
Julissa chose Samuel, who had lots of Spanish knowledge and had been to the Dominican Republic about twenty-five times. He took her to Color Me Mine, a ceramic studio to choose an animal to paint. She chose a frog she hoped would be her Prince Charming, and he chose a lion. She never expected to have a great time doing something so low key. They then went to have a lovely meal together as they dressed for dinner. He told her that her confidence was what attracted him to her. She confessed that around men, she felt that she lacked confidence. He asked if he could kiss her, and she agreed, but only on the cheek.
When Julissa saw Patti, she asked how the date went, and although she had a great time, she has not spoken to him since. He contacted her, but because of her work, she has not spoken to him. Patti told her to call him immediately, and put the work second. She reminded her that he is an awesome catch, and she should remember that he will let her be herself.
Patti called Haley and asked her how her date went. She told her that he cooked her dinner at his house, but they have not spoken, although he texted her a few times. When Patti confronted Adam, she told him that calling was for men, but texting is for teenagers.
In the end, Julissa never called Samuel for a second date. She has taken Patti’s advice, and is looking for a guy who puts her first. Adam and Haley have been seeing each other regularly, and Adam is so happy he came to Patti for her advice on love.
