Fox reboots their infamous reality series Joe Millionaire with new series


Nearly 20 years after the Fox reality series Joe Millionaire shocked viewers with its surprising reveal, the network has revealed its reboot Joe Millionaire: For Richer or Poorer.

The original series followed Evan Marriott, who courted 20 single women under the ruse that he’s worth $50 million, when in fact he was just a contractor. 

The show returned for a second, but much less successful season, but now the show will return, with a new trailer released Thursday (via Fox YouTube) that teases a tweaked premise with two bachelors… one who’s really a millionaire and one who’s not.
