'Joe Millionaire: For Richer or Poorer': 5 things to know about FOX dating show
Back in 2003, FOX premiered a dating show called 'Joe Millionaire' which featured an ordinary man pretending to be a millionaire and looking for his life partner. The women participating in the show went out of their way to woo him assuming that he was a rich man. The ultimate test of the women's love was when in the end it was revealed that he isn't a millionaire but an ordinary Joe. Should the woman choose to continue her relationship despite knowing the truth, the couple would be awarded a huge cash prize. Needless to say, the show was a one-season wonder, and the ratings dropped significantly after the first season.
After a hiatus of 19 long years, the network decided to bring back the dating show but with some new twists added to it as 'Joe Millionaire: For Richer or Poorer'. Some of the new twists include two bachelors seeking life partners instead of one.
