Patti Stanger, star of "Millionaire Matchmaker," tried her hand at a pair of same-sex matches Thursday on Bravo.

Rosie Pierri, 46, sister of "Real Housewives of New Jersey" cast member Kathy Wakile, came out on that reality show in 2012.

Pierri told The Huffington Post last year that it was difficult to come out but knew if she played a small role on the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" that questions would be raised.

"It was a big step for me, to tell you the truth," Pierri said. "I don't go around with a poster on my back saying, 'I'm gay!' If somebody asks me, I'll tell them the truth; if not, I leave it alone. I don't want there to be labels. So if anybody had a question in their mind, there are no questions anymore."

Pierri also said she thought it was good to go public and show viewers the challenge it was for her come out.

"Last season, they flashed me in a few times on the show and I knew I was going to be caught on camera again 'cause I'm with my sister and the kids and Richie (Wakile's husband)," Pierri said. "So the viewers — it's not rocket science to figure it out. So I figured they're gonna see some things, maybe (the tabloids) would say some things or whatever. And the kids, I was getting worried about that."

Stanger's other match on Thursday's show, Andrew Christian, 35, is an underwear designer surrounded by models but is looking for a mate that's more than just a sexy body.

Christian, a member of Bravo's reality show "The Fashion Show," caters his underwear design to the LGBT community, according to his biography. He has been featured on other shows, including the Oxygen reality show "The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency."

Christian's designs and underwear were featured on Logo as official "Pit Crew" sponsors for the popular competition show "RuPaul's Drag Race."
