So they really are making another one...I'm sure it won't be too hard to find 20-25 more bimbos...

I've heard a rumor that they filmed more than one when they filmed the first one, but I think that's unlikely.

It wouldn't be too hard to do it again. Just make sure the women don't know they're going on "Joe Millionaire". Tell them it's something like "Love for Life" or something equally hokey.

I've also heard rumors of a double twist, where the guy is getting fooled and the women are all in on it, but that sounds too much like "For Love or Money".

I wish they'd just go ahead and make some of those reality series from the Comedy Central parody ads.

Just find people off of a jury duty roster. You should be able to get a few hundred contestants using that method.

Maybe the twist is you get a million dollars if you're not picked.... so we get to see 20-25 girls tearing one guy a new one. Hey, I'd watch that... that might be the most entertaining thing Fox has had in a while not named 24 or on Sunday night.

If I remember correctly, nobody knew that he wasn't a millionaire until AFTER the show was finished. Well, except for the girl that won, anyway. So we were all in on the joke, but none of the contestants knew until after the fact. Or I *think* that was the point.

Anyway, I don't see any reason why it wouldn't work again. It's not like women were scared away from "The Bachelor" because of it. I think the problem will be that no one will really care to watch it again.

Unless they go with my idea, which is to have an actual millionaire that happens to be about as attractive as the backside of a cow, and then watch the hilarity as all of these women are shipped off to France only to find out they're all vying for the affections of THAT guy. Now THAT, I would watch.

You could offer the winner $6.95 and a pre-owned bus pass, and you could still find twenty women who'd volunteer to be on Joe Millionaire II. You could also find twenty men who'd volunteer to be on a theoretical Jane Millionaire, too.

Why?

OH MAH GAWD I GET TO BE ON THE TEEVEE!!!!11!11!

Ah, FOX. Because lord knows that Andy Richter didn't deserve to get renewed, not when quality programming like Joe Millionaire II exists. Sigh....

How did that show Mr.Personality end? Were people watching it? I flipped to it once and it looked freaky seeing a bunch of guys in masks drinking and dancing with each other.

They need to pull a double cross this time. I don't quite know how they should do it, because I didn't see exactly how the first one ended. Did they end up giving a million dollars to the couple last time? If so, I say this time give them nothing.
