Christian Clothing Hot Shots – the Cruz Brothers Seek Love with the Help of Patti Stanger
In this episode, we meet two brothers who have a successful line of Christian, faith-based clothing. The boys are muscle-bound body builders, good looking and personable.
The older one, Abe, has been in jail for the past three years which is where the idea came to him for this clothing line. He’s paid his debt for doing something stupid – selling cocaine to give a woman he was in love with the money she demanded (Hello – anything more deeply wrong here than illegal cocaine distribution?). Abe chose Tiffany and before a nice dinner, he took her to the gym for a big work out. Excuse me, is this fun? That would be a gigantic NO!
Next Abe and Tiffany go to dinner and he blurts out in a “I’ve been in jail too long without a woman” sort of way, that he’d like her to come back to his place for a night cap of hot tubbing. Tiffany, eyes-wide opened, declined in a very matter of fact way. No big deal, she just brushed it off the table so to speak. Whahoo Tiffany – Good for you!
Now in all fairness to Abe, if he’s watched Millionaire Matchmaker Episodes, all the way back there’s been hot tub activity on several first dates. There were the millionaires that chose each other instead of the dates Patti and her team selected. Heidi (was it?) who went out with the Canadian resort owner. No chastisement from Patti there.
And this season there was a guy who stripped his in the hot tub for all of us to see before dinner, stating how he couldn’t wait to get his hands on her. Certainly a bold obliteration of Patti’s famous club commandment- “No Sex before Monogamy! “They went for it after returning for dinner.
But off the TV, getting into a hot tub on a first date is unlikely and asking is a bit tacky Abe. I would advise my dating coaching clients not to fall for this obvious prelude to a tryst.
His brother Dave fared much better. After being cheated on by his wife within six months of marrying, Dave’s confidence was rocked. Patti worked to build him up giving him some great pointers.
While Dave also took Ayla to work out for the first half of the date -making me wonder what else these brother feel they must do together… Dave is a romantic and brought Ayla a nice bouquet of flowers handing them off just before dinner. He used his conversation skills to make talking easy for the two of them and they hit if off . Looks like they will be seeing each other again. You get points for this one Patti!
