Only this time Fox will find a guy who is actually rich. They will tell him that his being rich will be the new surprise. So the guy is thinking that at the end of the contest he has to lie to the women that he is poor. Then when she accepts, he will reveal that he was rich all along. Of course the woman has seen the last Joe Millionaire and knows that even if he's poor, they will get money if she chooses him, so no doubt she will choose him.

But Fox is too clever for this! This time, after the guy reveals that he is really rich, the butler will hand over a court transcript of the trial the Fox lawyers were engaged in while the guy was distracted doing his "Joe Millionaire" duties. The result of the lawsuit will be the total loss of all assets for the man. He will be a pauper. Hilarity will ensue.

must find kinky bondage chicks first...
2003-02-20 12:08:14 PM  
No!!! no more millioair, that show was horrible, and horribly adicting.
2003-02-20 12:08:16 PM  
More opportunities for girls to try and further thier "acting" carreers.
2003-02-20 12:09:01 PM  
Another Joe Millionaire, eh? That does it, FOX must be stopped! Unless, of course, the show features a midget, in which case the show must go on.

Joe Doesn't-Have-An-STD.

That would be entertaining.
2003-02-20 12:10:52 PM  
Or, they'll find a poor guy, and give him a million dollars before the show begins. Then they'll tell him to pretend he's poor (which will be asy since he was until last week) at the end of the show, he'll tell the woman that he is rich, but then FOX will tell both him and the woman that they were kidding, they didn't really give him any money.

/maybe the dingo ate your money
2003-02-20 12:10:56 PM  
they should do a joe tenthousanddollar-air just to see the women who show up
2003-02-20 12:11:58 PM  
Why can't we consider regime change at FOX? Isn't Murdoch part of the 'axis of evil'?
2003-02-20 12:12:43 PM  
Reality TV is the final nail in civilzation's coffin. Of course, I'm for anything that encourages intelligent people to turn off the boob tube...
2003-02-20 12:14:08 PM  
I always/b> thought that they should get someone who's "not attractive" and say he have a few million, THEN see what the women will do. Having a guy who's good looking and rich isn't a challenge, lets see just how desperate and gross these women will become. But then again, with so many fake shows out there...I don't know how they'd get some women to fall for it.

Oh wait a minute...........
2003-02-20 12:14:17 PM  
One time thing...... just like idol should have been
2003-02-20 12:14:20 PM  
Wouldn't most female contestents know what they were geting into after the show has now aired? Maybe they should use foreign women... I know, use Russian brides. There would be some REAL back stabbing if you used them.

Royalties can be mailed directly to me, Fox.
2003-02-20 12:14:43 PM  
I was really looking forward to it at first, but it ended up being a POS trainwreck that made me nauseated every time it came on. PLEAS fox no more Joe Millionaire. I've never seen such socially-retarded people on TV before.
2003-02-20 12:15:33 PM  
and..... what.

This stuff rotts your brain. Blow up your TV !
2003-02-20 12:16:19 PM  

I think Fox should do a Series called, "Tyson Millionaire, we think." See how many women turn up for that one.

I always thought I should learn how to close tags too!
2003-02-20 12:17:55 PM  
Man. I'd like to meet the chicks dumb enough to fall for it if they try it again. Easy pickin's.
2003-02-20 12:18:03 PM  
Okay, in all seriousness, what kind of a lie could they put up for a second run of the show that would be (1) intriguing and (2) believable enough that the girls involved would fall for it?

And who else thinks that full frontal nudity should be prominently involved somehow? Like the next Joe Millionaire is alleged to be a big time producer in Hollywood, but he needs to examine the girls' assets...

GET IT?! ASS-ets?!? Damn I'm kill me.
2003-02-20 12:18:07 PM  
I think they ought to do show "Jane Farksalot". Tell all these guys that this hot babe is a bi sexual nympho and watch as they compete for her attention. In the end they find out she is really a stuck up, fridged biatch who never puts out.

-just a thought-
2003-02-20 12:19:08 PM  
Is FOX basing their decision to do another joe mill off the fact that they had 40 million viewers for the last episode. Of course, they had that many for the last episode. Most reality shows get a huge viewing on the last show. That doesn't mean it was good.

Just because someone watches something, doesn't necessarily mean they liked it. It's like buying a CD before the mp3 craze. You didn't find out the music on that cd was crap (except the one song you did like) until you got it... then it was too late to return.

Soo many movies like this, soo many albums like this, soo many crappy shows out there. (not to mention some pretty drab video games, but I've found the ones I like and they keep me busy, heh).

I'm still waiting for CBS to accept my idea of Survivor: South-Central LA
2003-02-20 12:20:36 PM  

You should be working for Fox. "Who wants to marry a Former Heavyweight Champion of the World". Ratings would be through the roof.
2003-02-20 12:20:40 PM  
Maybe it could be "Joe Celebrity" but instead make it Gary Coleman.
2003-02-20 12:21:33 PM  
Jeebus_Frist: What happened to your picture?!
2003-02-20 12:22:00 PM  
Joe Utah? The surprise would be that he's already married... to like 8 different chicks.
2003-02-20 12:23:04 PM  
Went out and got all drunk last night and forgot about it when I stumbled home @ 2am. Bleh.
2003-02-20 12:24:52 PM  
Jeebus please tell me you can make either of those happen.

Joe Utah=teh funny
2003-02-20 12:25:15 PM  
How about a show called "TV Producers?" Every exec who's touched "Survivor," "Joe Millionaire," "American Idol," etc. is put in a pit with a variety of edged weapons. The winner gets to climb out of the pit on the corpses of his fallen opponents. A randomly chosen american then gets to shoot the winner (a gun company to sponsor this event will be found later).

Everyone wins.
2003-02-20 12:25:55 PM  
I can feel America's collective intelligence lowering as I type this.
2003-02-20 12:26:37 PM  
LOL Joe Utah!!! That's friggin funny Jeebus_Frist. You get the honorary medal of comedy gold for the day.

til someone else makes me laugh that hard that is.
2003-02-20 12:26:50 PM  
Even people who didn't watch/hated this at least heard
of the premise, generally least in the US.

I suspect if they do it again, they'll take it to some
impoverished foreign country...
2003-02-20 12:27:07 PM  
HENCHMAN: Rocks!!!! Great idea!
2003-02-20 12:27:23 PM  
If I had that kind of power over time and space... the world would be a much different place, my friend.
How about Joe Mangina? .... He's a lady, baby! Yeahhh!

2003-02-20 12:29:31 PM  
With all the money Fox probably made off of that schlock, they probably should make him a $50 millionaire.
2003-02-20 12:32:41 PM  
::tearing up cause of damn Jeebus_Frist..

"Mangina" LOLOL

you asshole! I'm giggling like a school girl at my desk!
2003-02-20 12:34:08 PM  
Of course, there is always Bill Hicks' idea for a reality show:

Let's Hunt And Kill Billy Ray Cyrus
2003-02-20 12:36:07 PM  
One word, "Thunderdome".
2003-02-20 12:36:18 PM  
More fodder for the Sheeppel.
2003-02-20 12:36:46 PM  
Boobies: You mean like SNL's parody, "Who Wants to Eat"?
2003-02-20 12:37:25 PM  
I think the survivor south central la is a good idea. i also like mine (which i've had all along) of survivor Antarctica. Someone loses a few fingers see what the backlash will be on those goddamn idiotic shows....

2003-02-20 12:38:36 PM  
Anyone listen to Phil Hendrie, one of the greatest comedic geniuses on the radio?

Anyway, his guest was pitching "Who wants to marry a retard with $100,000."
2003-02-20 12:40:22 PM  
I want a reality show called, "Watch hot chicks get naked and fool around with each other." I would neverr miss an episode.
2003-02-20 12:44:18 PM  
Williamzabka: You sir, are a genius! Sounds like a hit show to me!
2003-02-20 12:44:30 PM  
Who wants to marry my underwear.

/big in Japan
2003-02-20 12:45:56 PM  
Who wants to marry a mound of Pubic Hair?
2003-02-20 12:46:06 PM  
Joe Communist?
Joe Uncircumsised?
Joe Frenchman?
Joe Doesn't perform oral?
