[via press release from Bravo]


NEW YORK, NY - November 19, 2009 - Bravo and Patti Stanger are back together and going strong for a third season of the hit docu-series "The Millionaire Matchmaker," premiering Tuesday, January 19 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Stanger will stop at nothing to build her matchmaking empire - her business is flourishing, she has a successful book under her belt and is now hosting her own radio advice show. But after years of helping others find love, Stanger herself finally seals the deal. She and her longtime love, Andy Friedman, are engaged at last.

"The Millionaire Matchmaker" follows Stanger and her dogged staff as they give their big-bucks clients complete transformations with the help of personal shoppers, date coaches and therapists. In each episode, two wealthy clients are set up on dates hand-picked by Stanger based upon their beauty and intelligence.

In the third season, Stanger once again takes on a selection of millionairesses and gay clients. Plus, millionaires past will come back to haunt Stanger, notably Shauna Raisch who caused a stir last season due to a very tense and uncomfortable exchange with the matchmaker. But Stanger remains unfazed by it all, whipping her millionaires into shape even with a full plate of her own as she makes plans for her upcoming nuptials.

Stanger is known for navigating her business dealings with intense passion - she may not be everyone's cup of tea, but for those that do turn to Stanger for help in the love department, she gives them nothing less than her heart and soul in a sincere quest to find them their match. An experienced third-generation matchmaker, Stanger founded her company Millionaire's Club in January 2000. Previously, Stanger was the Director of Marketing for Great Expectations, the largest and oldest dating service in the United States. Her bluntness continues to garner her infamy - but no one can deny that Stanger has one of the biggest hearts in the matchmaking field.

Returning this season is her Vice President of Matching, Chelsea Autumn and her Chief Operating Officer, Destin Pfaff. Also back is Pfaff's fianc�e, Rachel, the Millionaire's Club's Director of Registration, as the first time parents head into season three.

Intuitive Entertainment and Bayonne Entertainment produce the series for Bravo. Kevin Dill, Mechelle Collins and Rob Lee serve as executive producers.
