I think I'd be more interested if this were on Fox. They'd know how to do it up right. Somehow, I expect NBC to drop the ball on this one ... of course, that doesn't mean I won't be watching ...

Here's the premise:

15 girls show up to try to win the heart of a Texas lawyer. The girls know that they will win $1 million if they get the lawyer to pick them, but the lawyer has no idea the girls have been turned into gold diggers.

The twist on the girls (which the girls don't know) is that the final girl picked by the lawyer will have to pick between the money or the guy, she doesn't get to keep both.

Here's the problem: how can they enforce the "she can't pick both" part of the clause? There's nothing they can do to keep her from collecting the million and hooking up with the guy later.

It's funny how quickly we moved from clones of "The Bachelor" to "The Bachelor PLUS Deception".

The idea of all these gold diggers fighting over a guy they`re pretending to like when all they actually want is the $money$ should be fun to watch

NBC has so much confidence in this show that they have ordered a second installment to be made before the cat is out of the bag.

Interesting. I hope they get some better looking girls than FOX did for Joe Millionaire.

As long as Monica Lewinsky isn't hosting it will be better than Mr Personality. This one might be worth taping.

How long is this series supposed to last? If it is fairly short, I might watch it, but if it is drawn out, I think that I will pass.

Hot chicks but far too boring. I've already turned it off with an hour to go.

Dude, looks like NBC has better scouts in the "getting hot chicks for their reality show" dept. than Fox or ABC.

Those are some hot chicks.

I don't know why, but I like the fact that the girls were told about the money after they got their, instead of before. Now you have the tension between those looneys that are "just looking for love" and those that just wanted to get their mugs on TV now have some added motivation.

But ultimately, I most shocked by the fact that this show was created by JD Roth!! When do the girls get their chance to get some valuable cash and prizes in the Funhouse

It's easily the most set up reality show i've seen.

That ending confirms it. Oh ya, i'm sure that was just a coincidence.

Aw man, it's just wrong to make the "not chosen" girls to burn their $1 million check.

At the onset, I like Laura, Christina, Erin and Alima.

Glad Cristy C got the boot.

Rob is a blank. Why did he have to draw the elimination ceremony out so dang long? Just point to 5 girls and tell them they are out!

I am sure he is nervous, but for a defense attorney he is not very well spoken. He mumbles almost as much as I do. "but I don't think it's gonna work out." I think he changed his mind in regards to Paige, the 21 year old, just before he was going to give her the boot, because he had said that he liked, Christi C, the last girl to be cut, earlier in the episode.

My favorite so far is Laura, the oldest of the bunch at 34. Gorgeous, sexy and well-spoken, imo.

Yeah, some pretty hot chicks, but the whole show was drawn out. I try to watch the next ep, but if it doen't pick up some steam, I'm going to bail on it.

The previews make it look like Rob got a little carried away...

That Paige chick is ****ing HOT!! I would've been scratching my head had he not picked her. Infact I'd just kick the rest of them girls to the curb and bone out with Paige.
