Remember 'Joe Millionaire'? Here's What Evan Marriott Looks Like Now

How many readers remember the reality show "Joe Millionaire"?

The 2003 dating show was one of the earlier reality shows, and the basic premise was the same as "The Bachelor," except the women didn't know that "Joe" -- real name Evan Marriott -- was actually a construction worker, not a millionaire as they were led to believe.

The former reality star showed up at the WE tv Presents: Evolution of Relationship Reality Shows panel at the The Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills, California, and he barely resembled the man we saw on TV 12 years ago.

Now 40, here's what Marriott looks like today:
