Megan Hauserman has probably invaded your television screen at one time or another, whether you know it or not. Maybe you saw her hooking up with Bret Michaels on Rock of Love or battling it out with other VH1 "celebs" on I Love Money. Nevertheless, Megans back, and shes taking charge. Whats the story this time? Megan is looking for a husband from a motley crew of millionaires ranging from movie producers to strippers (who knew millionaire strippers even existed?). We sat down with TVs newest guilty pleasure to get all the dirt on her new show, Megan Wants A Millionaire, the comparisons to Paris Hilton, and which famous mega-millionaire she'd rather bag.
Out: Megan Wants A Millionaire is the fifth reality show youve been on. Which one has been your favorite so far?
Megan Hauserman: Definitely this one!
And why is that?
Because I get to be in charge. I do all the picking, and Im in control, and I like it!
Before you did this, which was your favorite?
I Love Money -- it was so much fun. I had the best time in Mexico and I got to wear bikinis all the time. I never had to wear clothes. It was great.
Are reality television shows going to be your full time career now?
No. Im planning on retiring, marrying my husband, and becoming a trophy wife.
Did you always know that youd end up a reality star?
Um, no. It kind of just happened by itself. I love it though! I have a fun time, and I think Im the luckiest person I know.
How did you get cast on your first show?
I just went to an audition. I saw an ad for Beauty and the Geek on Craigslist.org. I just thought I would be perfect for it, and then they thought so too!
Were you really in love with Bret Michaels?
I wasnt in love with him, but I really did like him. And I thought he was cute and a good kisser.
Was being kicked off the show a turning point for you?
Uh, in what way?
As far as what you were looking for in a man.
Yes! After that, I said, No more short guys!
So what are you looking for?
Im looking for somebody really mature. And generous. And dominant. [Laughs] -- to be sexual.
So whats going to make Megan Wants a Millionaire more interesting than other VH1 dating shows like I Love New York or Daisy of Love?
Well for one, Im very serious and determined to find my husband on the show. And I think because its not like a copy of all the other shows -- its a totally original idea where the guys have to spend their own money on the show, and they can buy me presents. They get to use their credit cards, and I think its way better.
Were you surprised that not all the bachelors on Megan Wants a Millionaire were young and hot?
No, I realized that in the percentage of people in general, theres not that many hot people. So I dont know why it wouldnt go for millionaires as well.
What do you think of Paris Hilton comparisons? Do you like them or do you hate being compared to her?
I think that shes really... hot. And I think that people should be nicer to her. I dont know why everybodys so anti-her and mean and critical. I dont really see anything comparable about me to her. I think shes good on her own, but I definitely see myself as a totally separate person and personality.
What does Megan Wants A Millionaire have to offer gay viewers?
Why should gay guys watch my show? Because its really funny, and I think everybody should watch it. And its really over the top and ridiculous, but real at the same time. I think that gay guys have a really good sense of humor and appreciate how ridiculous I am. [Laughs.]
And without giving anything away, did you find love on the show?
I did find love. I fell in love every single day with every single gift I was given.
Finally, who would you rather get it on with: Bill Gates or Steve Jobs?
New episodes of Megan Wants a Millionaire air Sundays at 9 P.M. Eastern on VH1.
