Secret Millionaires

Tomorrow night on Fox there is a new show debuting called, "Secret Millionaires." Along with a few of my friends, I am eagerly going to be watching. One of the "secret millionaires" is an acquaintance of mine. I'm not in the mood to share which one right now, because I'm tired of my blog being found in google alert searches.
Surprised I know a multi-millionaire? Well, like I said, he's just an acquaintance. He was the owner of the company that my old employer shared office space with. I doubt he recalls my name, or remembers me. But I was around during the time he took off to go do his undercover work. And I heard him talk a little bit about his experiences. I was even in the office the day the camera crews came around to interview him, and get some footage of our office space. So I'm interested to see how this all plays out. He's in practically none of the promos for the show online. But his profile is on the site, and I have seen him in one of the TV spots for it now. So I'm going to watch. If you do too, I'd be interested in having a discussion about it. If there's anything to discuss that is.
Also, I think this is actually slightly redeeming reality TV. At least its reality TV trying to do something good for a change. And for that reason alone, I'll support it.

  1. That's why I like Extreme Makeover: Home Edition--they choose people to help who really need it, giving people safe, healthy environments when their previous homes were often neither.

    The only qualm I have about it is that I worry for the people to be able to pay the taxes & utilities on the huge monster houses they build for them. They do occasionally do green houses, but still, they're HUGE and they require such maintenance and energy to keep up. You would think it would be better to make them a small, well-appointed, well-crafted house rather than yet another McMansion.
