Joe Millionaire

On Monday, January 6th, FOX will begin airing Joe Millionaire, a show that promises to be perhaps the most controversial reality show yet attempted. That is a pretty high bar to hurdle too, considering FOX’s other foray’s into this field including, Who Wants to Marry a Millionaire, and Temptation Island.

By now you probably are well aware of the premise of the show. The ladies are expecting to be participating in a reality TV show, ala The Bachelor, and the target of their affections will be the charming and handsome Joe, who has just inherited $50 Million dollars, and now lives in a fabulous mansion in France.

The women will spend time with Joe and hope to make it into the finals of the game. Joe will decide who continues and who goes home. Reportedly he will be giving away jewelry of increasing value to each group of departing women. A nice thing for a rich guy like Joe to do, and much more valuable than a rose.

You are probably also well aware of the catch to this love story. Joe Millionaire is not rich, in fact, apparently he can’t even afford highway toll charges. He is instead Evan Marriott, a 28 year-old part-time model and full-time construction worker originally from Virginia Beach, Virginia, who will be honest with the women about all facets of his life, except for that minor issue involving money of course…

In other words, Joe Millionaire is really just an average Joe.
