Jonathan Cheban is no stranger to reality TV, but this latest appearance is really throwing us for a loop. Kim Kardashian’s BFF will appear in an upcoming episode of The Millionaire Matchmaker — despite the fact that he’s currently dating cutie-patootie Anat Popovsky!

Jonathan and Anat met last winter while he was appearing on Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, and the two have been going strong since last we checked in on him. So why would he need the help of the most famous professional yenta in the biz?

Well, it turns out Jonathan didn’t really seek out Patti’s services so much as Patti called in a favor to an old friend. “She asked me to do it and I was kind of hesitant at first," he tells E! News. "But then I thought, 'Why not test the waters?'”

But what about Anat? Turns out, though he was seeing her at the time of taping, they weren’t “100% on.” However, considering Jonathan spent a good portion of the summer skipping across Europe with Anat, we’re guessing Patti wasn’t too successful in finding a match for him. Or maybe it was Patti who led Jonathan to get closer to Anat? The universe does work in mysterious ways.

Guess we’ll have to tune in on December 5 to find out just how things went down!
