Patti Stanger has earned her "Millionaire Matchmaker" nickname (also the title of her previous show) through the years she has spent setting up wealthy people through her Millionaire's Club dating service, a practice she continues on this show. In each episode, two wealthy clients check into a luxury property in Southern California, where they unwittingly begin their "love lesson" through custom challenges designed by Stanger and her crew. Stanger then gives her feedback -- which can be brutally honest at times -- in one-on-one sessions with the daters, during which she gives an in-depth review of the surprise date. Each client is then introduced to the matches chosen by Patti, with the hope that one of them will be "the one." Stanger's team includes former beauty queen Candace, who has a psychology degree and is the top associate in Stanger's organization.
Being famous doesn't necessarily make it easier for celebrities to find love. "Famously Single" tries to help celebrities find partners with help from experts, who guide the stars while they look for love. The celebs live together in a downtown Los Angeles home. They are put through challenges and other exercises that strip away their fame to help them achieve the relationships they covet. The singles -- who come from such areas as TV, music and sports -- head to clubs, bars and tourist hot spots to try to find mates. Romance might be even closer than the housemates think when romantic connections take place in the house.
Do you have unfinished business with a partner from a previous relationship? All of the onetime couples featured on "A Night With My Ex" do, and the show is letting them tie up loose ends from the past. In each episode, a pair of exes spend a night together in a one-bedroom apartment complete with a multiple-camera setup. They are left to their own devices -- with no producers and no interruptions -- to try to hash things out. The participants get things off their chests, ask hard-hitting questions and face accusations of infidelity with the ultimate goal of achieving closure on the relationship. Sometimes that closure means a clean break, and other times it leads to renewing the spark and rekindling the romance. Regardless of the outcome, anything goes on the road to reaching that point as the couples confront their pasts -- and their futures.
