The Family | 2002
Reality series that pits family members against each other, all vying for the $1 million cash bounty. For the duration of the contest, the extended family will reside in a 20,000 square foot estate in sunny Palm Beach, Florida, complete with a full household staff, including a butler, kitchen staff, stylists, personal trainers, secretary, tennis pro, housekeepers, etc. As we know, the newest thing in reality programming is to provide a twist. So here's The Family's twist. Judging the family members will be a secret 'board of trustee's' who decide which family members stay in the game and which are eliminated (though they never leave the house). This deciding group is in fact the household staff, something the family will not be aware of until the ninth and final episode.
