...How in the world can you make another Joe Millionaire? How can you find anyone stupid enough to fall for it AGAIN???
CHRISTIAN,n. 1. One who believes that the New Testament is a divinely inspired book admirably suited to the spiritual needs of his neighbor. 2. One who follows the teachings of Christ in so far as they are not inconsistent with a life of sin. 3. That guy what used to team with Edge.
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.
"So you're Ben Affleck. You're sitting next to Jennifer Lopez, who's your fiancee, you're eating a eight-foot high sundae, and members of the Boston Red Sox are coming up to you and asking for autographs. If that's not heaven, what is?" - Tony Kornheiser, PTI
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.
OH MAH GAWD I GET TO BE ON THE TEEVEE!!!!11!11!
"You may be wondering why I have been making so many references lately to Fox News. The reason is that it is now my cable news network of choice -- because if Iím going to watch the news and be lied to, I want it to be ridiculously obvious that I am being lied to." -- Center for an Informed America, Newsletter #34
Ah, FOX. Because lord knows that Andy Richter didn't deserve to get renewed, not when quality programming like Joe Millionaire II exists. Sigh....

In the issues of December 16th, 2000 to November 10th, 2001, we may have given the impression that George W. Bush had been legally and duly elected president of the United States. We now understand that this may have been incorrect, and that the election result is still too close to call. The Economist apologizes for any inconvenience. --- The Economist, 11/17/01
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.
NOTE: The above post makes no sense. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Wow, I completely disagree more about the episode. I thought the sketches were all pretty bad, and I think that the cameos were a sure sign of weak writing. The Continental is a horrible skit, always has been, and always will be.
