Joe Millionaire's Evan Marriott Looks Totally Different Today!
Joe Millionaire took television by storm back in 2003 and now the show’s star Evan Marriott is stepping out looking totally different over a decade later!
The 40-year-old former reality star stepped out at the Evolution of Relationship Reality Shows panel on Thursday (March 19) in Beverly Hills, Calif.
“I went back to work. I’m a contractor,” Evan said during the panel (via Us Weekly). “I was saying backstage that after the show, you don’t know what to do, where to go with your life. Some friends got together, had a little intervention, a come to Jesus moment.”
Evan also talked about achieving overnight success when the show aired.
“It’s as simple as this: I was staying at Central Park South, the night of the first show,” Evan said. “I went to bed as Evan Marriott and the next day, when I went out on the street, people were literally — this is not an exaggeration — people were at stoplights in their cars, yelling out at me, ‘Joe! Joe!’ And I’m going, ‘Who the hell is Joe?’”
“It just happened — talk about overnight,” he added. “I didn’t know about success, but notoriety. And it’s… it’s… you can’t explain it, it’s really powerful. It’s really powerful when not just your friends know you, but everybody thinks they know you. They think they do. And depending on how you take it, it’s sometimes not that pleasant.”
