FOX’s hit reality dating competition from 2003 is returning, and this time, it has a twist. In “Joe Millionaire: For Richer or Poorer,” 18 women will date two men in hopes of finding a love connection. However, one man is an “average Joe” while the other is a millionaire,” according to a press release.
As FOX’s announcement put it, “As love connections are made and each guy finds his perfect match, the women must ask themselves what is more important…Love or Money?”
