The reality competition reboot, which premiered exactly 19 years after the mega-hit Joe Millionaire aired, offers all the awkward dates, catty behavior, drink-filled moments, and innuendo that these types of reality shows are known for. But unlike the 2003 original, which completely fabricated a narrative about then-bachelor Evan Marriott's financial situation, Joe Millionaire: For Richer Or Poorer is a bit more transparent, and notifies the women about the differences in the men's economic status without revealing who the millionaire actually is. It's a bit less manipulative, and there are some mildly surprising events, but the overall premise of the series feels outdated and tired. If you like this sort of voyeuristic reality entertainment, you might find something here. But if you're looking for an innovative revival, you'll be disappointed.
