Millionaire Matchmaker's David Cruz admits he's left the show and won't be returning next season
'Millionaire Matchmaker's' very own matchmaker David Cruz has confirmed he won't be returning to the next series of the US dating show.
The 40-year-old 'cupid', returned to the show back in 2016 for his third season as Hollywood matchmaker Patti Stranger's "left-hand man" but he has now confirmed he's leaving the programme for good.
Speaking to Scott McGlynn on his podcast 'The Scott McGlynn Show', when asked when the new series was returning, David spilled: "I've actually left the show, it was my last season just gone."
David landed his first stint on the show several years when he joined as the matchmaker's date before he returned to assist rich clients alongside Stranger.
Just last year the show moved channels from Bravo to WEtv and David started the season with Stanger's Justin Jedlica, the self-proclaimed "Human Ken Doll", who has undergone nearly 300 plastic surgery operations.
Aside from his TV work, David has a radio station and blog called Finding-cupid.com and isn't planning to walk away from his job any time soon.
David teased: "I have exciting things in October still in the love dating business, and it's going to be huge just can't say anything as of yet."
When asked whether his former co-matchmaker Stranger really was as "blunt" in real life as she is on the show, David replied: "Yes what you see what you get, me and her got on well as I wasn't afraid of her, which she liked."
Speaking about how the dating show works, David previously said: "We check them into the resort and we follow them every step of the way 'Big Brother' style. We see everything they are doing from the first day, to the challenges we give them. Before you didn't really see us do that. Now you get a really big 360-degree view of how we do things and how Patti can really go deep with her toughest, toughest clients."
