Secret Millionaire on Fox

Did anyone else catch this show? What are your thoughts?

The show is basically millionaires who are sent to live for one week with regular struggling people. At the end of the week they decide who to give away $100,000 to.

I watch that show, it's really good,it would be fun to be able to give it all away, and congrats on the $2000 milestone!

Hmm, I watched it. I think it's great that they're giving away some of their money to those who need and deserve it; however, I had a difficult time with the millionaires living with less when they knew they had a nice home and money to return to after a few days. Either way, it was still a nice gesture.

Thanks Louise.

Cent with Love,I think part of the reason to have the millionaires live below their means was so that they could identify with those real struggles that are out there. Sometimes we live in such insulated worlds that it could cloud our judgement.

Never heard of it, but they can give the cash to me :)

I saw it for the first time last night. It was really interesting to me to see what "the real world" looked like to millionaires.

I'm hooked. I like to see people doing good things for others and I usually end up shedding a tear every episode. I think it would be cool to do a follow up on the millionaires to see if they've changed any. I think I would feel sick to my stomach a bit after spending a week feeding homeless people, etc. and then coming back to 11 cars and a mansion. Then again, maybe I could get used to being the ultimate consumer :)

I've seen the show twice now and I really like it. I would love to have the means to go to a new town and find a few people to give enough money that would change their lives.
