A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Stanger promotes her service as a way to find real love, but the show sends the message that money can buy it.
Positive Role Models
The Millionaire's Club is a an elite service for wealthy men, many of whom are immature and/or have extremely sexist ideas about women. The women are interested in finding men who can offer money as well as a relationship. Stanger can be brutally direct about her clients' perceived flaws. She often insults the potential dates during screenings.
Sex, Romance & Nudity
Plenty of innuendo, including strong references to sexual activity. Women are expected to dress "sexy" for prospective dates and when attending matchmaking events (though actually having sex during matchmaking dates is a no-no). Frequent discussions about women's breasts and backsides. On one occasion, a man's penis is referred to as a "ding dong danger."

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Frequent consumption of alcohol (wine, beer, mixed drinks), though Stanger's rules say two drinks is the max on a date. Stanger claims that her service offers a high that's better than any drug.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this voyeuristic matchmaking reality series offers mixed and sometimes troubling messages about using money and material wealth to find love. It also introduces some sexist attitudes about women and dating, and there's some drinking and strong sexual innuendo (including various references to sexual activity and male genitalia).
Is It Any Good?
The series sends mixed messages about buying love and highlights some sexist ideas about women. Some of men are looking for women who will satisfy them in the bedroom and the kitchen and still manage to raise their children. Others seem to think that they can order women like they can a fancy car. Meanwhile, the women anxiously attend open-calls and VIP cocktail events in hopes that they'll catch the eye of a rich man who might just be willing to treat them to helicopter rides, yacht cruises, and cocktails at vineyard castles. True love indeed.
While Millionaire Matchmaker offers an uncomfortable view of what some people will go through to get a date, watching the matchmaking process is an oddly fascinating and voyeuristic experience that some adults and older teens may find entertaining. But its strong sexual innuendo and sexist subtexts make it iffy for younger viewers.
