Million Dollar Matchmaker (10 p.m., WeTV) – Formerly Bravo’s “Millionaire Matchmaker,” Patti Stanger has taken her show to WeTV, still trying to match highly coached single people with eligible millionaires. Tonight’s debut features Justin Jedlica, who grew up in Cary and graduated from Apex High School. Justin, who now lives in Los Angeles and works in “plastic surgery consulting,” calls himself “The Human Ken Doll” and here’s why: he’s had 288 plastic surgery procedures and has more planned. He tells Patti that he has the surgeries because he loves getting attention. Of Justin, Patti says, “I’ve never seen a tougher case than this.” Patti and her team pick two men who they think will be good matches for Justin and she sends them on dates. At the end of the process, Justin picks the suitor he liked best and if that suitor is also interested in another date, a match is made. If the suitor is not, Justin will continue his search for love. The episode also features a woman in her late 40s with a bad habit of repeatedly falling for and marrying the wrong types of men.
