The Secret Millionaire is a reality television show which originated in the UK, in which millionaires go incognito into impoverished communities and agree to give away tens of thousands of pounds (or tens of thousands of dollars in the U.S. version). Members of the community are told the cameras are present to film a documentary. The UK version is produced by production company RDF Media. It first aired in 2006 on the UK's Channel 4, with further seasons in subsequent years. For each program, a millionaire leaves his/her luxurious life behind, takes on a secret identity and lives undercover in a deprived area of the country for a week to ten days (in the U.S. Season, it's 6 days). Living on a limited budget with no modern conveniences they must forge their own way in the community working and volunteering alongside the locals and finding individuals or projects whom they think deserve a cut of their fortune.
