Who is Kurt Sowers? 'Joe Millionaire: For Richer or Poorer' star seeks love in an 'unorthodox way'
Only time will tell whether the women see Kurt as a bad guy for his deception or just a hopeless romantic on 'Joe Millionaire: For Richer or Poorer'
While most people prefer finding the love of their life in an "organic manner", Kurt Sowers isn't one of them. The star of FOX's rebooted dating show 'Joe Millionaire: For Richer or Poorer' joined the show looking forward to finding love in an "unorthodox way".
With his well-groomed man bun, sharp looks and great style, it's easy to mistake Kurt as the millionaire bachelor on the dating show. But unfortunately, you'd be wrong, as his co-star Steven McBee is the real millionaire. Adding a modern twist to the original 'Joe Millionaire' show, the showrunners decided to bring in two handsome bachelors instead of one for the single ladies to woo. The twist is that only one of the men is the millionaire, while the other isn't. The ladies pursue these men without knowing which of them is Richie-rich, and who is just pretending to be rich. Considering Kurt is pretending to be rich, we'd say he really meant it when he said he was looking to find love the "unorthodox way". If you're curious to know more about Kurt, then keep reading.
Who is Kurt Sowers?
Kurt is a 32-year-old general contractor from Charlotte, North Carolina. On his Instagram bio, he describes himself as "King of the Dudes, Builder Boy Extraordinaire, and El Loco Gringo." During the pandemic, Kurt picked up a new hobby- playing piano. The reality star's profile has several clips of him playing his piano to various tunes ranging from DaBaby to Beethoven!
In the preview clip released by the network, Joe reveals what love means to him. It seems like laughter plays a very critical role in relationships for him. He shared, "Perfect relationship would revolve around laughter." "I don’t ever wanna be apart from them, and when I am apart from them I can’t wait to get back to them. Love is understanding we are not always going to be perfect partners. If you truly love somebody you need to love them for who they are, and love them for them and acknowledge them for them," he added. When he was asked to describe in three words why he was doing the show, he simply listed laughter, love, and friendship, as the three driving factors.
It looks like Kurt is ready to chase the woman of his dreams, despite some competition from his co-star Steven. "I’m a born competitor, if I do something, I do it to win." But he is also aware of the fact that his deception might not sit well with everybody. "There is no way to come out of this not being a bad guy and I don't know how to handle it," he can be heard expressing. Only time will tell whether the women see him as a bad guy or just a hopeless romantic.
'Joe Millionaire: For Richer or Poorer' is all set to premiere on Thursday, January 6, 2022, at 8/7c on FOX.
