In My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiance, the producing team of Jean-Michel Michenaud and Chris Cowan pulled off the ultimate practical joke. Randi Coy had to convince her family that she was going to marry "Steve," a big, fat slob who, unbeknownst to her, was a paid actor. She and her family were tested to the breaking point in a show that featured some of the most outrageous moments in television history. But if you think that was outrageous, wait until you meet My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss. My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss is a parody of such shows as NBC's The Apprentice and even FOX's very own The Rebel Billionaire: Branson's Quest for the Best. In the very first episode, twelve business professionals meet Mr. N. Paul Todd and learn about his multi-billionaire conglomeration, IOCOR, in a slick PowerPoint presentation. What they don't realize is that Mr. N. Paul Todd is nothing more than an anagram for Donald Trump and IOCOR comes from the Latin for "to jest." Mr. Todd is an actor named William A
One Billionaire Twelve Corporate All Stars The Con Of A Lifetime!
Welcome to my world.
The victims of FOX's My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss arrive at a corporate tower where they meet business executive Mr. N. Paul Todd. In a PowerPoint presentation, he informs him of the holdings of his vast, multi-billion dollar corporation, IOCOR. What the victims haven't been told and don't know is that Mr. N. Paul Todd is actually actor William August and IOCOR is a fictitious corporation. Mr. Todd welcomes them to ""his world"" and they all seem to be bamboozled into thinking they're starting something big. Later on, they are split into two groups of six men and six women and assigned their first challenge. Each team will come up with a degrading name for the opposing team --- Femron is chosen for the women and Concad for the men. The teams are then subjected to their humiliating challenge - panhandling - in which the winners receive a reward, while the losers are punished and must face elimination.
A select group of victims is invited for the first Executive Privilege --- a tour of Mr. N. Paul Todd's luxurious mansion. The mansion has actually been rented for the day and stocked with items designed to raise the victims' opinions of Mr. Todd. Included is a ridiculous laser light-show that allegedly protects the first million dollars that Mr. Todd earned, as well as the legendary Excalibur sword. The sword, in actuality, is nothing more than a cheap replica that was polished and cleaned before being inserted into the mansion. Next, the victims take part in the second nonsensical challenge. They enjoyed panhandling, but they absolutely love this task --- selling hot soup on a scorching Chicago day. Concad and Femron go into action and to everyone's surprise, sales are actually quite brisk. A vendor selling cool treats is sent in to follow them around, but sales are still hot. The men beat the women and the women are sent to Mr. Todd's office. There, he and his executives work to con
Mr. N. Paul Todd invites a group of guys and a group of girls to join him for the next Executive Privilege. The girls are asked to join Mr. Todd on a yacht called the Perseverance II while the guys will join him for a golf outing. Mr. Todd then joins the girls on the yacht and completely blows off the guys. On the yacht, he reveals his naughty side by giving the girls a gift that keeps on giving --- bikinis! Later on, he does the equivalent of a drunk-dial when he calls up Whitney back at the IOCOR tower and flatters her by telling her that she's ""fascinating."" The next day, the contestants are summoned for the newest ridiculous challenge. They're asked to come with a marketing campaign and mascot for a company called Drycon that markets a chemical called hydrocyanic acid. Femron and Concad are then judged by a group of eight year old magnet school kids. The women lose and sent to Mr. Todd's office for elimination.
The remaining victims are brought to a flea market where Mr. Todd reorganizes them, supposedly based on personal appearance. What they don't know is that the decisions on who would be moved where were made before-hand and the entire exercise is being done simply to screw with them. The next day, they are given a challenge to sell four ridiculous products that are fake: pure oxygen in a bottle, a low-carb spray, environmentally friendly tampons and renewable, reusable toilet paper. The teams get down to some hard selling, using any avenues they have available. Some decide to make previously unmade claims about the products, to great success. However, Femron gets a real boost for a bulk purchase and wins the challenge. Concad is punished by having to eat a bad meal in an aquedect, while Femron is treated to dinner at the Cite with fireworks afterwards. Concad pays their visit to the boardroom, where they must tell Mr. Todd about catch-phrases they came up with for eliminating them. Two a
The victims of the hoax receive an invitation to go on a corporate retreat with Mr. Todd. Once there, they are given an opportunity to air their grievances, to which Mr. Todd repeatedly responds with only ""thank you, I appreciate that."" The next morning, he shares some eggs and bacon with the guys and they chat about the girls, allowing Mr. Todd to further expose his skeevy side. It also gives Iocor COO David Hickman a chance to build on his strange fascination with Damian. Afterwards, Mr. Todd challenges the guys to basketball and plays himself for a wimp before making a $1000 bet with Robert and David. He then goes one-on-one with David and gives him the trash-talking of a lifetime, winning the match. Then, Mr. Todd has the victims of the hoax participate in the most ridiculous challenge yet: navigating an office obstacle course while he pelts them with paintballs. It ends in a tie, but Concad loses the tie-breaker and Robert and David are put up for elimination. Before not making th
The show has turned to trash --- literally! The victims are challenged to create artwork out of garbage after going dumpster-diving. The obnoxious wife shows up to offer art criticism. Kerry puts the moves on Mr. Todd, in front of the obnoxious wife.
The final victim is let in the hoax and given a cash prize of $250,000. The victims then learn that the person making the decision as to who would stay and who would leave was not N. Paul Todd, but instead a mystery boss. The secret identity of the mystery boss is finally revealed.
