Trevor Jones — a former contestant on Bravo’s “Millionaire Matchmaker” and CNBC’s “The Profit” — has died.
According to a family friend, Jones died on Oct. 9 from a “sudden Vascular Ehlers Danlos Syndrome event.” Ehlers Danlos Syndrome is a genetic disorder that weakens connective tissue and can lead to spontaneous rupture of major blood vessels.
A GoFundMe page set up for his family remembers him this way … “Trevor was the type of person that left a footprint in the world without even trying. He was sincere, generous, funny, and always tried to give back. Trevor had a gift where he could make anyone smile, laugh, or feel comfortable with just a look or a few words.”
Jones is perhaps most famous for his season 8 appearance on Patti Stanger’s dating reality show — where she tried hooking up folks in the 7-figure world with a potential love interest. The guy was a successful entrepreneur, who launched a company called Flex Watches.
He memorably went on a date with ‘The Hills’ star Stephanie Pratt — and they seemed to hit it off at the time. Ultimately, though, Jones ended up marrying someone else.
Speaking of his business … Flex Watches was eventually featured on CNBC’s reality show ‘The Profit,’ which ended up getting partially acquired by investor Marcus Lemonis … who made them a deal at the end of Jones’ episode, and helped get the company off the ground.
Lemonis ended up offering $400k for 40% of Flex Watches’ equity … and Jones and his partner took him up on it.
Jones is survived by his wife, Cherrie, and his young daughter, Finley.
