Fox is bringing back its classic reality series Millionaire Joe, the popular dating show that took the world by storm in 2003.
Joe Millionaire: for the richest or the poorest is set to add a new twist to the original format, featuring two single men… with one major difference – one is a millionaire, and the other is definitely NOT. Twenty women will date the two men, but they will have no idea who Joe is rich. The series, produced by Fox Alternative Entertainment and SallyAnn Salsano of 495 Productions, is set to air in January 2022.
“This revival of Millionaire Joe represents a powerful combination: one of the most innovative and popular dating shows of all time starring SallyAnn Salsano, who ranks among the most fearless producers in the business,” said Rob Wade, President, Alternative Entertainment & Specials, Fox Entertainment.
He continues: “I have long admired Millionaire Joe for its bold premise, and from the time I joined Fox, I’ve wanted to bring it back into the spotlight in a whole new way for new viewers and fans of the original.
the original Millionaire Joe debuted in 2003 and saw a group of single women vying for the affection of a bachelor billed as a millionaire. However, unbeknownst to the women, the bachelor was not actually a millionaire – a fact that only came to light at the end of the contest. It became one of the highest-rated and most-watched first seasons for an unscripted series in the past 20 years.
Following its initial network airing, fans will be able to follow the new series on Fox’s free streaming platform, Tubi, which is now also home to the original first season of Millionaire Joe.
