On May 27, Fox premieres a reality show with a royal twist: "I Wanna Marry Harry'" will follow 12 American women who believe they're in a dating competition involving a member of the British peerage -- evidently Prince Harry, given the red hair and overall look, though Fox's announcement never calls him that. The bachelor is, in reality, an average Englishman -- identified by Entertainment Weekly as one Matthew Hicks -- who's been given an upper-crust makeover, a la "My Fair Lady's" Eliza Doolittle. The show resembles Fox's "Joe Millionaire" (2003), featuring a faux rich man.
