NEW YORK, NY - July 11, 2011 - Bravo's hit docu-series "The Millionaire Matchmaker" returns to Los Angeles for its fifth season, premiering Thursday, August 18 at 9 p.m., ET/PT.

Now she's newly single and ready to mingle, but is love in store for the famed matchmaker herself? For a sneak peek at the upcoming season:
In each episode, two wealthy clients are set up with dates hand-picked by Patti. From a former NFL player to "Million Dollar Listing's" Madison Hildebrand, Patti will be challenged to find love for a very diverse roster of rich singles. This season, she calls on celebrity friends Tori Spelling and Jenny McCarthy to provide expert advice for her hapless millionaires. With a brutally blunt approach and a big heart, Patti and her staff - Chief Operating Officer, Destin Pfaff and VP of Matching, Rachel Federoff - give their affluent clients complete transformations with the help of personal shoppers, date coaches and therapists.
An experienced third-generation matchmaker, Patti founded her company Millionaire's Club in January 2000. With a bestselling book under her belt and an easy-to-follow DVD, "Married in a Year," Patti's business continues to flourish. She may not be everyone's cup of tea, but Patti gives her clients nothing less than her heart and soul in a sincere quest to find them their perfect match.
