Evan Marriott gets game show host gig.
Evan Marriott, the star of the Joe Millionaire that people actually watched, will be returning to TV as a game show host. Appropriately enough, involves “a lucky contestant going on dates with two sexy singles” but “one of the singles is actually on the market looking for love, while the other is a faker, trying to win a luxury vacation with their real significant other,” as Zap2it.com reports. The show, airing in March on the Game Show Network, is called Fake-A-Date. Be forewarned: Zap2it.com has a photograph of Evan and his new look. He now has oval black-rimmed glasses and a chin full of facial hair, and barely resembles his former self.
