Fox Reality Channel to Air the US Premiere of Controversial UK Reality Show, "There's Something About Miriam"

UK Hit To Premiere in the U.S., Wednesday, October 31 at 1:00 AM ET/10:00 PM PT

LOS ANGELES -- "There's Something About Miriam" and that something has everyone talking! Fox Reality Channel, the only all-reality, all-the-time television network, will debut the controversial hit series on October 31 as a special sneak preview. The show's regular time slot will be late night Sundays at 1:00 AM ET/10:00PM PT beginning November 4, concluding on December 9. "There's Something About Miriam" first premiered in the UK in February 2004 and quickly became one of the most widely discussed and controversial reality shows ever aired due to its dramatic conclusion.

Hosted by Tim Vincent ("Access Hollywood"), "There's Something About Miriam" chronicles the journey of six men who travel to a luxurious house in Ibiza, Spain, and enter into a heated dating competition to win the heart of a stunning 21-year old Mexican model, Miriam. But Miriam's secret, that she was born a man, is not revealed to the contestants until the final episode.

The six contestants include: optician Mark Dimino, student Toby Green, chef Aron Lane, lifeguard and ex-ski instructor Tom Rooke, martial arts expert Scott Gibson and Royal Marine, Dominic Conway. The men engage in various dating "competitions" to win Miriam's heart, including a swimming race, rock climbing, a chariot race and poetry writing. The final prize included 10,000 pounds, one week on a luxury yacht, and hopefully, Miriam's heart. All are captivated by her outward and inward beauty and most do not suspect that she is a transgender woman.

"Fox Reality Channel is dedicated to bringing its audience the most talked about, edgy reality shows from around the globe," said David Lyle, President, Fox Reality Channel. "We are at the forefront of airing programs that create and stir up dialogue."

Miriam was born in Mexico in 1982 and realized early on that she wanted to be a girl. With the support of her family, she began her transition process at the age of 12. After launching a modeling career she decided that she would take a chance and star in the reality dating show, originally entitled "Find Me a Man." Miriam explained to TV Plus, "I did it because I wanted to know if real love exists." After the finale of "There's Something about Miriam" in the UK, Miriam went on to become a guest visitor on "Big Brother Australia."
