Jenna “Mourey” Marbles is taking a break from her YouTube career to guest star on Season 8 of Bravo’s hit reality dating series “The Millionaire Matchmaker” next month. While the Internet personality — most famous for her “How To Trick People Into Thinking You’re Good Looking,” tutorial— will not be a client of matchmaker Patti Stanger’s on the series, she will be present to help two of Patti's of new customers find love.
In a new twist this season, Stanger, 53, has expanded to expertise to help celebrity men and woman find their ideal partners. In episode 7, she will pull out all the stops to assist Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” and “Manzo’d With Children” star Chris Manzo and TMZ reporter Max Hodges learn the ins and the outs of dating. During one of their preliminary talks, Stanger brings in Jenna, 28, to help her wrangle in the men.
“There is a total method to my madness. If I have a second voice who is an expert in their field, no matter what it is, then my clients pay attention and listen and they do the work,” Patti says in a sneak peek of episode 7 after introducing the YouTube star to her new clients. According to Patti, the two men have not had luck with love because they're too complacement to find the perfect woman. “The cool guy, momma boy acts are not convincing to me," she says. "I think Jenna can get through [to] these guys and break their schtick.”
Ahead of being introduced to single women at their dual mixer, Jenna attempts to train the men. Unfortunately for Chris, 25, he receives the brunt of Jenna’s infamous, mouthy wrath. “You shook my hand like a wet fish… Can you shake my hand like a real man, please?” Jenna asks in the teaser.
She later slams him again for failing to make eye contact with her during their conversation about his professional life. “I want you to make eye contact, honest eye contact. I want to feel like I’m having a real conversation with you,” she says.
After trying her hand at training Chris, Jenna transfers her energy to Max in the sneak peek. As part of a different exercise, Jenna asks the entertainment reporter and TV personality to have a conversation with her, only for him to criticize her physical appearance. “I like your dyed, gray hair. It’s kind of like old lady hair, but I dig it,” he says. Despite the insult, Jenna takes the backhanded compliment in stride.
“I don’t think I would ever date someone like you because if I wanted someone like you, I would adopt a teenage boy,” Jenna quips.
“Jenna is holding court. She is a tough, tough cookie,” Patti says.
Despite her initial differences with Max, Jenna continues to help him by giving him an impromptu makeover. “I want your like inner David Beckham to come out,” Jenna says before putting his long, blonde locks into a high bun. “I think you look nice,” she adds.

Jenna’s appearance on “The Millionaire Matchmaker” isn’t her first TV venture. She appeared on Season 4 of Rob Dyrdek’s MTV clip show “Ridiculousness” in 2014.
Jenna first made her YouTube debut in 2010. She now has a tremendous following on the social video-sharing site with 14.6 million subscribers and over 1.6 billion views.
