Secret Millionaire: is ABC’s new reality series, where six of America’s most successful business people will spend a week in the country’s poorest areas, ending their stay by giving members of the community hundreds of thousands of dollars of their own money!Secret Millionaire is based on the UK series with the same name. Each week viewers will watch as one of America’s millionaires will leave behind their lavish lifestyle’s, magnificent mansion and luxury jets; concealing their identities for one week to live and volunteer in some of the most poverty-striken areas. Their life-changing mission is to find deserving individuals who sacrifice everything for others. While on their amazing journey, the millionaires will meet extraordinary people who battle the odds. On their final day, the millionaires will reveal their true identity and present a gift to the deserving individual in the hopes of inspiring others.

In the premiere episode, successful entrepreneur Dani Johnson leaves her family and luxurious lifestyle to spend six days in one of the most impoverished areas of Knoxville, Tennessee. While there, she will live off of welfare level wages, volunteer her time and determine how much of her own money she is willing to gift the community heroes she meets. Johnson herself is no stranger to struggling. She grew-up on welfare, was pregnant at 17 years old, homeless at 21 years old and a millionaire at 23 years old. Now, Johnson is a multi-millionaire, entrepreneur, best-selling author, international speaker and the head of five companies.

Secret Millionaire premieres tonight on ABC at 8pm|7c.

    Love the premise of this show but it would be much more entertaining and effective if they gave the money to actual individual people they meet as opposed to gifting a volunteer center or a shelter-that kind of giving they can do off camera but for the show to be most appealing to viewers it should completely be centered around the Millionaires meeting a handful of real people, down on their luck and helping them individucally. That would be a winning show….

    My husband and I just finished watching Secret Millionaire with Marc Paskin. It is the best reality show in a long time. Were not as fortunate as Marc, but if we were we would follow in his foot steps.
    It’s an amazing thing that he has done for the less fortunate. And may God bless him. thank you,
