Patti hates this perfectionist crap, because it leads someone to pay attention to the wrong shit. Like, looks. Looks are important, but looks also fade. Dumb or sloppy is forever. This guy’s going to be really hard to match. Especially because he refuses to settle for an unorganized woman. Patti’s like, “no one wants to fuck ‘organized’!”
(I stopped here to do more Googling of Jim2, and for a fleeting moment, I thought I unearthed that he was married to Jena Jameson, porn star extraordinaire! But no, that was JAY Grdina. Are Jim and Jay related? That might actually explain a LOT.)
Anyway, they chit-chat a little longer about what he’s actually looking for (blonde, a woman who’s interested in family, etc.), and then we leap immediately into meeting the next bachelor. Who needs segues?
Jim1, AKA James Schramm, CEO of some big-ass entertainment company. Like, movie distribution and whatnot. I Googled it, and I found his IMDB and it’s soooooo TL;DR that I didn’t read it. But the photos are hysterical. There are a few selfies of him all tan and “Whazzap?” and then one of him showing off some abs, somehow. He’s a big guy, I’m surprised that there were abs in there.
Does he think IMDB is PlentyofFish.com??
Anyway, Jim’s talking about how wealthy he is and how awesome that is and what cars he’s got, and then he starts saying something about how he doesn’t lead with his money (O RLY?) and that bequeathing his dollars unto the non-billion-dollared folks “feeds his soul.” As in, he recently gave money to some family of a little girl with cancer, paying all their bills or something. And didn’t take any credit for it. If that’s true, that’s very sweet. He should do that more often and encourage others to do it. Or, ya know, pay more taxes so we don’t all have to go broke treating our medical conditions. Also, him bragging about doing an “unrewarded act of kindness” kinda negates the whole thing a little bit.
The video’s over, now Patti and Jim1 are chatting it out. What happened in his marriage that it failed? Jim1 cites a lack of passion, that it just didn’t have what it needed to keep going. At that point, Patti asks for his hand, and then she slaps it, hard. I hate when she does this childish shit. She’s smacking him for not getting a pre-nup. He shrugs and says, “I’m old fashioned.” That’s kinda sweet, actually. The old-fashionedness, not the stupid hand-slapping.
Patti also smacks Jim1 down a little for the “leading with the money” thing. Like, calls him out for his attempts to deflect it. Jim’s impressed that Patti’s picking up on stuff he hasn’t said but is true about his whole approach to everything. No specifics, he can just tell that she’s got some talent here. (And mock all we do about Patti and her success rate, I really DO think she’s got some talent. She’s just also full of shit.)
