INTERVIEW: Destin Pfaff, Millionaire Matchmaker

We here at Fashion Indie love reality shows, especially the ones on Bravo. Millionaire Matchmaker is one that we follow religiously. We actually got the opportunity to speak to one of the cast members on the show, Destin Pfaff. He is Patti Stanger’s right hand man and now COO of her company. We asked him all the questions that everyone is dying to know about him, dating, and of course on working with Patti.

Where do real millionaires hang out?

Besides our office? The best places to find a millionaire are at high end steak houses, cigar lounges, and the occasional charity event. You could also dig up a millionaire at specialty events, like classic car shows, conventions, and auctions.

Do you ever get relationship advice from Patti?

I definitely give a lot of it to her, as for getting it… yes I’ll admit she has truly helped me in my relationship with Rachel. Although I think I’m still mad at her for making us work together.

What is the biggest difference between the real Patti and the “TV” Patti?

Take the TV Patti and multiply her energy by twenty, and Bam! You have real Patti. That, and more bad words.

How did you feel about Patti telling you to get married?

Harassed? Actually, Patti loves Rachel to death and just wants the best for the both us and the best is each other.

How do you feel about Patti’s engagement?

I LOVE Andy! He’s my pal! We have a LOT in common. He is a great guy and the total opposite of Patti. If yin and yang are meant to be together, these two are a match made in heaven.

What is the secret behind your awesome hair?

I call it my “Get up and Go hawk“. A little Giga-hold gel, splash of hairspray, and a dash of love. Honestly, it has a mind of its own, it just stands up… usually from me looking in the mirror too long.

Where did you get the name Sin Halo (his sons name) from?

Rachel and I were lying in bed talking about the good and bad in everybody and out popped “Sin Halo”. It came from out of nowhere and just stuck… we kept coming back to it and back to it. He was destined for that name.

What is your biggest dating “no-no”?

Talking about your exes. Nobody wants to imagine you having sex with someone else while they’re out on a date with you – remember that.

What should one wear to attract a millionaire?

Simple is key. Men are not complicated creatures and the more complicated you dress the more it confuses us. A simple black cocktail dress showing a little cleavage and a little leg goes a long way. It leaves just enough to the imagination, well at the same time bringing some attention to the goods.

What should one wear on a date with a millionaire?

Well, if what you wore attracted him in the first place… something similar is a safe bet. And watch out for panty lines.

What’s the hardest part about your job?

Patti and Rachel. But they are also the best.

What is the most fun thing about your job?

Giving dating advice and watching it work . And doing interviews with great website like fashionindie.com!

Who on the show was your favorite client?

Jimmy D. and Ayinde were my two favorite clients. As human beings they were sincere, self respective, genuine, and fun. Having said that my most unique experience so far, has been Jason Davis aka Gummi Bear. Would I call him fun? No. Would I call him interesting? Yes.

Who was your least?

Hands down my least favorite was Justin Levine. If you look up the words “unaware, self-centered, douche bag” on Wikipedia, there’d be a picture of him in tutu thinking he looked hot. But that’s just my opinion.

What are some tips you could give on how to bag a millionaire?

Watch our show, The Millionaire Matchmaker, every Tuesday at 10PM ET/PT on Bravo, buy Patti’s book, “Become Your Own Matchmaker”, tweet Rachel or I for our free weekly dating tips… or put on your best cocktail dress and a little red lipstick and go down to the nearest high-end lounge with a magazine, sit at the bar by yourself have a drink and wait for them to flock towards you, make sure you smile.
