Just a few notes before I begin, and some are super random: did you know that the show was originally going to be called Trophy Wife, according to Wikipedia? Also, did anyone see Toddlers & Tiaras last week? A girl's name was Makynli. McKinley's not so bad, and I almost like it, but Makynli? How unbalanced do you want the name to look, geez!
Last night was the premiere of Megan Wants a Millionaire, starring Megan Hauserman, on VH1. Now, I can’t say that I’m Megan’s biggest fan after her shenanigans on Rock of Love and I Love Money, but the girl is smart! She played the ditz-turned-smart girl on Beauty and the Geek, made trouble on Rock of Love and I Love Money, and now has her very own reality show. (I think she was on Blind Date, too.)
In any case, Megan is the girl you love to hate, or just can’t stand at all. She makes trouble, relies on her body rather than her mind (on the surface, anyway) and is all about being a gold digger.
However, the girl does some things right. According to Wikipedia, she put her Beauty and the Geek winnings towards her mortgage. She has a degree in accounting. And, she can mess with people’s minds like nobody’s business.
Megan hit reality gold with her own show, Megan Wants a Millionaire, where men will compete to win her love and hand over their hard earned cash. She did two very smart things right from the start – well, one thing, two people. She brought Cecille Garr from Beauty and the Geek and Brandi C. (Brandi Cunningham) from Rock of Love on her new show. So, not only will she attract her fans to watch her show, but she’ll attract theirs too. The only flaw that I can foresee is that both Cecille and Brandi C. look great, and that might cause a guy or two to stray. We’ll see!
The show is also reality gold because of the guys that appear. One guy is so boring it’s amazing, but he’s a movie producer. Another guy is a bit rough around the edges, to say the least. Another is a stripper and has a birthmark that looks like a moustache on his stomach. And another is a plumber. Yes, a plumber.
Even if you aren’t a fan of Megan Hauserman, you won’t be able to tear yourself away from this trainwreck of a reality dating show. It’s great to watch these guys go nuts for Megan because of her bikini-model body and reality show stardom. It’s especially great to watch the really awkward guys, and watch Megan struggle with which guy to send home.
My take: watch it. I kind of hate to support Megan’s quest for “love” and money (notice only one is in quotes), but it’s a great watch, especially with the great commentator.
