Though true love can be hard to find, tough love is in plentiful supply on Million Dollar Matchmaker.
In an exclusive sneak peek at the upcoming season, Patti Stanger takes on “Human Ken Doll” Justin Jedlica, who has a tendency to be preoccupied with looks over genuine connection.
“Justin is a very unique case – his physical appearance dominates his life,” Stanger explains. “I need to break him of this terrible, terrible habit.”
To do so, Stanger confronts him about the way he forms connections with potential dates.
“You need someone to fall in love with your soul, not your f—ing body,” says Stanger, 55. “How are they going to get to know you if you lead with plastic surgery, which is so superficial and shallow?”
Though Justin is clearly taken aback by her bluntness, he agrees to participate in the weeklong program and admits Stanger’s harsh approach is one of the reasons he’s here.
“Patti definitely preaches some tough love, and I’m here to learn,” says Jedlica, 35. But he adds, “If this is any sort of indication of how the rest of the week is going to go, I’m kind of scared.”
Million Dollar Matchmaker premieres July 8 at 10 p.m. ET on WEtv.
