LOS ANGELES – You may remember “Joe Millionaire,” a man who graced television screens nationwide as a dashing millionaire but who turned out to be a construction worker with a humble upbringing.
Well, Joe is back — sort of.
FOX is putting a fresh twist on one of the most-watched dating shows in reality history with “Joe Millionaire: For Richer or Poorer.”
The show, which is set to debut in January on FOX, will feature two single men… with one huge difference. One is a millionaire, and the other is an “average Joe” with little to his name.

“This revival of ‘Joe Millionaire’ represents a potent combination: one of the most innovative and popular dating shows of all time with SallyAnn Salsano, who ranks among the most fearless producers in the business,” Rob Wade, the president of alternative entertainment & specials at FOX Entertainment, said. “I’ve long admired ‘Joe Millionaire’ for its daring premise, and since the moment I joined FOX, I’ve wanted to bring it back in the spotlight in a whole new way for both new viewers and fans of the original.”

Twenty women will date both men, but they will have no idea which Joe is rich. As love connections are made and each guy finds his perfect match, the women must ask themselves what is more important: love or money?
The original “Joe Millionaire” debuted in 2003, marking the highest-rated and most-watched debut season for an unscripted series of the past 20 years.
Viewers can catch up on the series that started it all before the Jan. premiere, as the original first season of “Joe Millionaire” is now streaming for free on Tubi, FOX’s free streaming platform. The new series will air on FOX and stream on Tubi.
