American TV is recycling another British reality show.
Fox just picked up a reality show called Secret Millionaire.
The English version ran for 2 seasons and won a prestigious award across the pond.
In Secret Millionaire, a wealthy benefactor goes undercover in impoverished neighborhoods. For about 10 days, the multimillionaire meets financially destitute locals and experiences what it's like to live on a meager budget for the first time in their lives. At the show's conclusion, the millionaire reveals his true identity to the community and gives a minimum of $100,000 of his own money to at least one deserving person.
Doesn't sound too bad. It's just too bad that Hollywood couldn't come up with the idea itself!
