Would You Date Yigit Pura?
By Jerry Portwood
We told you about Yigit Pura's latest venture, Tout Sweet, and his fancy cakes for same-sex wedding couples. Then we told you that he was one of the 100 Most Eligible Bachelors. But then Patti "The Millionaire Matchmaker" Stanger had to spoil everything and go and make it official.
This week, you may have already noticed the San Francisco-based pastry chef on the show—if not, it will repeat this weekend—and heard Patti proclaim that Yigit is a "Millionaire in Training." But don't worry: the date may have been a hit, but he's not off the market. Yigit told us (and tweeted) that he's still single and "still eligible."
But we wanted to know: Yigit, why don't you have a man by your side enjoying the sweetness of your many confections? "I'm a very strong-headed person," he admitted, adding, "I want someone just as strong as me, but not as crazy. But I don't want another verison of me."
He said he enjoyed being on the show, and even though he had fun on the date, he's not really into it when guys are gobsmacked by his "celebrity." But the even bigger question, of course, is how does a guy who makes sweets all day have six-pack abs?
"You want to know my trick? Open a business," he said, laughing but clearly serious about it. "I don't sleep and I've been existing on caffeine and chocolate for the past three to four months. Don't worry, I'm healthy."
Don't believe him? Well check out these great shirtless pics from the show.
