On The Million Dollar Matchmaker episode “Mr. Self-Absorbed and The Trainwreck,” the Mister is 33-year-old MMA fighter Shondo Blades (he speaks in the third person). The trainwreck refers to Courtney Stodden, the now 23-year-old who at 16 famously married 51-year-old actor Doug Hutchison in 2011. Since then there have been reports of legal separation and reconciliation. Stodden is the youngest client of Patty Stanger’s to appear on the show.
Patti has arranged a date for Courtney with a young man who Courtney says looks like Paul Ryan (yes, the politician). Courtney tries to obey Patty’s rule of not drinking on the first date. When the young, meditative man reveals that he used to work with an anti-gang program with the Boys and Girls Club, Courtney says, “You’re like Jesus Christ or something.” Quick on her feet, Courtney asks him to turn her water into wine. He instead gives her peppermint oil to meditate with him at the dinner table. “Boring!” Courtney finally assessed. The Million Dollar Matchmaker airs Fridays at 9pm on WE.
