In the premiere episode, meet this large family – two parents, six kids and one on the way – who are residing in a downtown two bedroom while waiting for their latest renovation project to be finished. Space is cramped for the family at the moment, but the team comes together as they embark on yet a new chapter of their lives with a new baby on the way, a new home being renovated and new projects on the horizon.

The runaway groom is looking to finally meet “the one” and settle down. Patti is not happy to hear her other millionaire is none other than returning client Zagros Bigvand. Last season, this Kurdish playboy notoriously broke Patti’s rules and slept with his date, creating such a scandal that he was booted from the club. Now one year later, the rogue Kurd claims to be a reformed man looking to finally find a wife.
