Highlights From Freddie Mitchell Searching for Love On Millionaire Matchmaker

Highlights From Freddie Mitchell Searching for Love On Millionaire Matchmaker

With the Sixers-Pacers game going down to the wire at the Wells Fargo Center and the Flyers-Sabres playing an exciting one up in Buffalo, the usually must-see-live-TV event that was Freddie Mitchell appearing on Millionaire Matchmaker was relegated to the DVR. But it was worth the wait.

Some fun quotes and highlights from Freddie's episode:

  • "Basically he's been burned so many times because he's famous, and he's sick of it, so he wants [Millionaire Matchmaker] to filter."
  • Freddie: "I'm a retired NFL player thinking about coming back." "I might go back and try and play again." HA!
  • Freddie got dumped by his fiancee after the Super Bowl loss to the Patriots.
  • FredEx is a 31-year-old father. He has a six-year old girl.
  • He's attracted to white and latino women.
  • Freddie: "Now I'm a venture capitalist. Any kind of ideas, businesses that I want to load my money in, that's what I do."
  • For his "mini dates," Freddie picked the Gemologist from North Carolina and a lady who was a stuntwoman that also enjoys Brazilian Jujitsu.
  • For his "master date," Freddie wisely went with the Gemologist. He took her on a helicopter ride over New York City, including Central Park.
  • His date, Adrienne, mentioned that she looked him up on the Internet and saw that he failed to pay child support.
  • "I didn't think it was none of her business about my situation with my child. I thought it was kind of rude... very rude actually." His date later said he had a good explanation, but the audience didn't get to hear it.
  • Freddie: "It was rude when she Googled me, but I've been in ball games where I was losing by 21 points or so but I never gave up, so I'm not going to give up on this date."
  • Freddie shared that he did some cheerleading stunts in high school and then proceeded to "do the chair," a cheerleading move in which he lifted his date up and sticks her rear end in his hand.
  • His date on Freddie: "A really open, nice, fun person. There were some rough spots, but overall I had fun."
  • He learned more in one date with the Millionaire Matchmaker's guidance than he did in the last three years.

All in all, Freddie was kind of a nice guy. Gentlemanly, but kind of jocky, if not a bit boring and seemingly full of shit. Sadly, Freddie and Adrienne (pictured above) never went on a second date. Hopefully he finds love some day. Or something. But for real, it'd be okay if he made more TV shows out of his dates.

Also, the other date airing on this episode was kind of an awesome train wreck during which a dude told the millionaire dater that he was totally not into her after she showed him a DVD of her in lingerie. On their first date.

Ben Simmons shrugs off mental fatigue with another triple-double

Ben Simmons shrugs off mental fatigue with another triple-double


Around 6 p.m., Ben Simmons spoke about mental fatigue and the frustrations it can cause. 

An hour later, he hit the court and posted an 11-point, 12-rebound, 15-assist triple-double … with zero turnovers.

“I wish he was more mentally fatigued in the future,” Brett Brown said with a laugh. 

The 21-year-old rookie may be feeling the weight of his first NBA season, but he certainly didn’t show it Monday in the Sixers’ 108-94 win over the Hornets (see observations)

Simmons recorded his third triple-double in the last four games. He exhibited disciplined court vision by finding his teammates with a high level of ease and chemistry that’s been developing over the season (see highlights).

“I was trusting them to knock down shots,” Simmons simply put it. “They make it easy for me.”

Simmons became the first rookie in the NBA to record a triple-double with 15 assists and no turnovers. Only David Robinson and Andre Iguodala had reached a triple-double without an error as rookies. 

Simmons considers his assists and turnovers to be the most meaningful stats of the triple-double, noting his turnovers usually are caused by mental errors. 

"That’s amazing," Joel Embiid said. "To be able to make the right reads and not turn the ball over, there’s a few guys in the league that can do that ... that just shows you that he can be a great point guard."

The 6-foot-10 point guard is averaging 16.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, 7.9 assists and 1.7 steals per game over 34 minutes. With each game that passes, Simmons continues to be linked with the feats of Hall of Famers. From joining in the same company as Oscar Robertson and Magic Johnson to moving ahead of Allen Iverson for most 10-assist games by a Sixers rookie, his performances are often tied back to historical markers. 

“I think people get caught up in how many points I score every game,” Simmons said. “It’s not about that. It’s a matter of points that we’re getting as a team and how many stops we get … 

"People are always going to say I need to do certain things but I know what I’m capable of and I know what I’m really good at.”
