For Love or Money 3 debuts tonight.
NBC kicks off the summer reality season with the debut of For Love or Money 3 tonight at 9 p.m. ET. This season’s twist, which isn’t exactly a secret: The women are all playing for either $1 million or $1; they don’t know that they might be whoring themselves for a buck, nor do they know that the guy knows. Speaking of not knowing, model Preston Mercer, who is the man in question, didn’t even know he was on NBC’s money-grubbing reality show. It’d be unfair to chalk this up to the fact that he’s a model, as producers lied to him and said he was on a show called “Adventures in Love.” Still, he had seen some previous episodes of the show, but “recognize host Jordan Murphy when he first met him,” TV Guide says.
