One of the trio of "Joe Millionaire" finalists has starred in dozens of kinky bondage and fetish films that feature her being handcuffed, gagged, hog-tied, and bound with duct tape, The Smoking Gun has learned (Disclaimer: While accompanying images contain no nudity or flagrant violence, viewer discretion might be indicated).

What? Someone on Joe Millionaire was dishonest? Lord, NO!

Does anyone else think all of the "shocking revelations" about this show that have peppered the entertainment news for the past few weeks have all been leaked by Fox itself? I'm sure Fox saw all of the press coverage "Who Wants To Marry a Multi-Millionaire" got after the fact and realized that the news could be the perfect medium to advertise their ongiong series. In the three years since the "Multi-Millionaire" snafu, I'm sure Fox has learned how to cover its ass, and the only reason these "secrets" got past Fox is because they were meant to.

turaho, you are totally on the money, once again Rupert Murdock gets all the free advertising for a show he can use!

There was the Millionaire thing, the couple on temptation island with the kids, the underwear model shots of Joe, Fox has this stuff down to a science!

This is on the cover of today's NY Daily News.

my question is this, was there nudity & sex? A report I saw on the news made it out as prOn rather than the act of being tied up, bondage.

Gosh, better hide the pic of my first bath.

If this is all she did, being tied & gagged, then the network knew. I'm sure she signed a clause somewhere that would hold here accountable for real bad press. The show was sold to endorsed commercials?

How much more fake drama reality will we have to endure?

I was so hoping this wouldn't make it here...

No nudity. Just some bare (dirty)feet in one pic, the rest of it was just being tied up. Fully clothed.

The Smoking Gun has the info if anyone cares. Since they and Matt Drudge put the story out I am not sure why we have to deal with it. I could quote Marge Simpson again but by now I am sure we all have it memorised.

Looks can be so deceiving.

now i want her to win SO BAD!!
i like how it matches the bullshit: "i'm really not a good girl, I'M A BAD GIRL" .."i'm really not a lunkhead millionaire i'm a lunkhead construction worker" ..the photos of her in rope totally stink tho. i was hoping for some betty page leather and whips. these things look like shots from an office party at the boringforgettablepeople.com

must admit - when this show premiered i was SO into it - but he's such a dumb bore. it would have been a much better idea if they took a really lovable intelligent but toady looking guy and seen those bimbos act fake around him for the bags o' cash. there's no drama if the guy's some hunk.

if they end up together, at least they both have a history working rope and duct tape

i have the fox network blocked on my tv (along with a particularly offensive "family values" station) 'cause when i'm channel surfing i just don't want to bother with the worst of the worst, not even the briefest glimpse. it's bad enough i can't avoid finding out about these dumbass shows from other sources.

there's no drama if the guy's some hunk.

wow, from the pics i've seen of him, he's one fugly ape...! what's with that squashed head of his, from the side... like it was steamrolled. he looks like the misbegotten love child of david hasselhoff and semach the chimpanzee from monkey world.

I don't watch fake shows like this; I demand purity and honesty in my reality shows, which is why I only watch Survivor and Big Brother.

This really is pretty disturbing. A contestant on "Joe Millionaire" was in bondage pictures with Isaac Mizrahi.

This is the best pic on the best page of the bunch, definitely a linker. Check out the top picture also: JC Penney catalog.

I just love that she apparently wore the same sweater and earrings in her official Fox publicity picture AND one of her bondage videos. Must be her lucky outfit.

To publish this shows incredibly poor taste on the part of TSG. I don't see how this could possibly be a matter of public interest.

I despise tabloids in general, but that's just me maybe.

I really can't be bothered with this kind of story.
What's the big deal? I don't know the show "Joe Millionaire" but I can hardly imagine it's the kind of show people turn to for moral guidance and shining examples of virtue. And all she's done is, after all, let herself be filmed while tied up with her clothes on.
She alledgedly was tickled as well. Oh, the horror!

Come on! This is nothing but a pathetic attention grab by a network that gets way to much attention already.

Sorry to burst everyone's bubble, but Zora's gonna win.
posted by Civil_Disobedient at 1:33 AM on January 31, 2003


I hope so! Zora's a foxy mcfoxy fox! :D

My secret theory is that she'll not only get picked, but when JM reveals his secret, she reveals hers: that unlike the other women, she was in on the secret all along, and is in fact NOT a pure-as-the-driven-snow substitute teacher, but a wild woman who recently inherited... $50 million dollars! Fox put a reasonably decent person in with 19 obvious gold diggers to ensure JM picked her, for the ultimate audience "fake out" on the final episode!

Well, at least that's how I would do it if I were Rupert Millionaire...

I do agree with Peter H that it would have been better to take, if not a toady looking guy, an average looking if somewhat 'ample' tech worker or office schleb, and watch the women fawn over him. That'd be the real pleasure in it, anyway.
