The Con Is On! 12 Business Bigwig Wannabes Compete Against One Another When New Unscripted Series 'My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss' Premieres Sunday, November 7, on Fox

[via press release from FOX]

THE CON IS ON! 12 BUSINESS BIGWIG WANNABES COMPETE AGAINST ONE ANOTHER WHEN NEW UNSCRIPTED SERIES "MY BIG FAT OBNOXIOUS BOSS" PREMIERES SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 7, ON FOX

Contestants Barter, Bargain, and Even Beg for "Billionaire's" Approval

When FOX ridiculed relationship-reality series with "My Big Fat Obnoxious Fianc�" last season, uncouth and boisterous "Steve Williams" (real-life actor Steven Bailey) became every parent's nightmare - the fianc� from hell. This season a demeaning and pompous boss, "Mr. N. Paul Todd" (real-life actor William August), will become unbelievably absurd as he hooks and cons 12 young, unsuspecting, type-A business professionals into believing they are competing for the job of a lifetime at a billion-dollar company called IOCOR.

"Mr. N. Paul Todd" is a fraud, IOCOR does not exist and there is no open position; the only real reward is a $250,000 cash prize. The funny business begins when these contestants arrive in Chicago and immediately apply their expensive educations and strategic skills to a rudimentary salesmanship contest - panhandling on the street. The deal-breaking joke and boardroom shenanigans get under way in the season premiere of MY BIG FAT OBNOXIOUS BOSS Sunday, Nov. 7 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

In a final embarrassing surprise, the fate of these business-savvy contestants is being decided by a mystery boss, promising to be un-missable - the funniest and most unbelievable reveal in reality TV.

ANNETTE, 24, Sales - Whippany, NJ
