The series is noted to be similar in style to FOX's My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiance, which aired in 2003. It is based on a United Kingdom show titled The Million Pound Hoax, broadcast on Sky One earlier that year.
In the series, daughter Chrissy Sanford plays a hoax on her family by convincing them she had won a $25,000,000 lottery prize through the internet, and that it had changed her from a sweet girl into a spend-a-holic.
Chrissy successfully pulled off the hoax, which won her and her family over $400,000 in cash and prizes.
