FOX GOES PUBLIC WITH SECRET MILLIONAIRES

"Secret Millionaire" Debuts Wednesday, December 3, on FOX

FOX reveals a wealth of millionaires participating in SECRET MILLIONAIRE, the inspirational new unscripted series premiering Wednesday, Dec. 3 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. The millionaires include an internet mogul worth $300 million, a husband-and-wife team who own a multi-million dollar magazine-publishing business, a successful Southern California lawyer, an owner of a restaurant empire, a Baltimore socialite and former NFL cheerleader as well as a software inventor worth $50 million.

The secret millionaires will leave their opulent lifestyles and go undercover to experience life in some of the most impoverished areas of the country including a community devastated by Hurricane Katrina, an old coal-mining town in Schuylkill County, PA, and areas outside of Los Angeles, San Francisco and Las Vegas, where people in need live just minutes from those in upscale, gated communities.

Challenged with living on minimum wage, the millionaires will immerse themselves in situations beyond their comprehension. They will work side-by-side with community members and befriend those in need. During their stay, they decide who of their new-found friends, neighbors or co-workers should ultimately receive their extraordinary gifts of a lifetime � at least $100,000 of their own money.

The Secret Millionaires are:

GURBAKSH CHAHAL (from San Jose, CA) - A technology entrepreneur, Gurbaksh Chahal, also known as "G," left high school at age 16 to form Click Agents, an internet advertising company, which he sold two years later for $40 million. In January 2004, Chahal launched BlueLithium, a company focused on the next generation in online advertising, and just over three years later, BlueLithium was sold to Yahoo! for $300 million. Now, at 26 years old, Chahal is set to debut his third company, gwallet.com, and has written a memoir, titled "The Dream," to be released later this year.

TODD AND GWEN GRAVES (from Baton Rouge, LA) - Todd Graves is the founder and CEO of Raising Cane's, a quick-service restaurant chain that specializes in chicken fingers.
