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.

Bravo.

Best of MLB: Mike Trout (thumb) leaves early as Marlins crush Angels

MIAMI -- Mike Trout sprained his left thumb stealing second base Sunday, and the Los Angeles Angels took a thumping without him, losing 9-2 to the Miami Marlins.

Trout yelled in pain as he rose after sliding headfirst in the fifth inning. He was examined by a trainer, stayed in the game, but was replaced in the sixth. X-rays were negative, and there was no immediate timetable regarding his return.

The reigning American League MVP was 0 for 2 when he departed with the Angels trailing 4-2. He finished 2 for 9 in the series to drop his average to .337 (see full recap).

Aaron Judge hit first-career grand slam in Yankees' win
NEW YORK -- Aaron Judge hit his first career grand slam and the New York Yankees took full advantage of Oakland's shoddy defense Sunday in a 9-5 victory over the Athletics.

Michael Pineda (6-2) tossed six innings of three-hit ball to win his third straight start. Aaron Hicks and Chris Carter each had an early sacrifice fly as the AL East leaders scored five unearned runs and took two of three in a well-pitched series.

Judge connected with two outs in the third for his 16th home run, tying Mike Trout of the Angels for the big league lead. The drive landed in the right-field seats, not far in front of The Judge's Chambers cheering section installed by the Yankees for the start of this 4-2 homestand.

Khris Davis hit his 15th home run for the A's, who committed two more costly errors to raise their season total to 49. They began the day with 10 more than any other team in the majors.

The fielding failures put starter Andrew Triggs (5-4) in tough situations. He went six innings and gave up one earned run (see full recap).

Miguel Gonzalez loses perfect game in seventh, but pitches White Sox to win
CHICAGO -- Miguel Gonzalez took a perfect game into the seventh inning, Todd Frazier hit a two-run homer and the Chicago White Sox beat the Detroit Tigers 7-3 on Sunday.

Melky Cabrera and Matt Davidson also connected, helping the White Sox take three of four in the series. David Robertson got two outs for his seventh save.

Gonzalez (4-5) allowed three runs and six hits in 7 2/3 innings while snapping a five-start losing streak. The right-hander struck out six and walked none.

Gonzalez retired his first 18 batters before Andrew Romine led off the seventh with a hard one-hop liner to shortstop Tim Anderson, who couldn't field the ball cleanly and was originally charged with an error. Alex Avila followed with a single into to right field, and Romine's ball was later changed to a hit (see full recap).

Gone but not forgotten: Joel Embiid remembers Harambe on 1-year anniversary of death

Gone but not forgotten: Joel Embiid remembers Harambe on 1-year anniversary of death

Gone, but not forgotten … as long as Sixers superstar center Joel Embiid has his way.

On the one-year anniversary of Harambe's death, Embiid remembered the slain gorilla on Instagram with the caption: "Gone but never forgotten #RIPHarambe."

The Instagram post was accompanied by a picture of Harambe along with a longer message and acquired over 22,700 likes within the first 37 minutes of its posting.

Gone but never forgotten #RIPHarambe

A post shared by Joel "The Process" Embiid (@joelembiid) on

There are some factual errors in Embiid's post, however. The picture stated that Harambe "would've been 18 today," which was posted Sunday.

Harambe's birthday was May 27, 1999. He would have been 18 years and one day old Sunday.

This was not Embiid's first participation in the Harambe Internet meme.

Regardless, the tragic killing of Harambe, a popular male gorilla at the Cincinnati Zoo, sparked outrage and then Harambe became an Internet meme.
