The Secret Millionare

If you know me, you know I have a few personal favorite shows that I try to watch each week; Heroes, Smallville, Extreme Makeover Home Edition, and my new favorite, The Secret Millionaire. This is kind of like FOX's answer to Extreme Makeover Home Edition.

One of my last posts was on why I wanted to be financially free and what that means to me. This show really fulfills my vision of what that is. These are millionaires who take time to volunteer in their communities or the communities surrounding them and find ways to donate their funds in order to enrich people's lives. If you'd like to watch any of the episode's online you can do that here. I linked to one of my personal favorites, episode 2.

This is a brand new TV show that just came out early December and is trying to get the ratings to stay on the air so, if you like what you see, I encourage you to tune in to FOX whenever it shows in your area. Here is the synopsis FOX gives on their website:

Challenged with living on minimum wage, the millionaires will immerse themselves in situations beyond their comprehension. They work with with community members and befriend those in need. Then they decide who of their new-found friends, neighbors or co-workers should ultimately receive their extraordinary gifts, at least $100,000 of their own money. The millionaires include an internet mogul who last year at age 25 sold his company for $300 million, a co-owner of a multi-million dollar magazine-publishing business, a successful Southern California lawyer, an owner of a restaurant empire, a Baltimore socialite & former NFL cheerleader as well as a software inventor worth $50 million.



I was surprised when I found out that they take the multi-millionaire, and put him on welfare for 1 week, and he has to survive on that.

He had to find work, a place to live, couldnt use anything he already had, it was like day & night; millionaire one day, bum the next.

The guy was staying in a cheap hotel, and woke up with cockroaches in his bed.
