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]


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.
