LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Where are Destin and Rachel? That was the question posed to Patti Stanger during a recent WWHL episode as fans tried to grasp where are Destin Pfaff and Rachel Federoff of Millionaire Matchmaker. While Bravo many of several of its shows, and Andy Cohen executive produces many of them as well, often the entrances and exits of their stars leave fans guessing. In this case, the answers remained more outside the confines of the new season of Millionaire Matchmatcher as opposed to within.
The exit of Destin Pfaff and Rachel Federoff from Millionaire Matchmaker could have gotten a different portrayal in the longstanding Bravo show. But it didn’t. Over the years, Bravo has tackled how to enter and exit new personalities, and in some cases, return them back into the storyline. In many cases the longer the running program, the more problematic as to how to exit a personality.
Several seasons ago, fans had not seen much of Tamra Barney doing real estate deals. But then, suddenly, she was showing potential “client” Heather Dubrow a real estate parcel in Orange County for a possible building deal. Dubrow ended up not singing the purchase deal. But by then Heather had already signed on as the latest entry of RHOA.
Fans were not particularly pleased with the lack of clarity in the exit of Destin Pfaff and Rachel Federoff from the Millionaire Matchmaker storyline this season. Instead, the clarity came from gracious statement online from them and Patti Stanger. Both stated the exit was amiable, with both sides wishing the other continued success and professional growth.
But yet in the realm of TV programming, some fans wanted that to be shown on camera, inside the show. It could have been a big ratings hit. So what did that not happen?
Eventually Patti Stanger appeared on WWHL as the current season started to explain what had happened. Nevertheless, that clarity would not come into the show’s storyline.
The pair tells news “And yes, we left by choice to pursue new endeavors.” For now, many Bravo fans want the pair to return to Bravo for their own show. With the landscape of too many Bravo shows appear to replicate one another in both style and delivery, Destin and Rachel are unique. They have thanked fans in recent weeks for their outpouring of support. But as to whether they would be coming back to Bravo soon, that remains to be seen.
