Evan Marriott, the star of Fox’s ”Joe Millionaire,” may not actually have much money, but he is hardly without assets. They’re on display at the website for California Muscle, a catalog website specializing in thongs, G-strings, leather briefs, and other revealing undergarments for men. Search the site for such items as the ”Gladiator Brief” and the ”Arabian Boxer,” and you can see exactly what Marriott has to offer his bevy of bachelorettes.

According to the New York Daily News, the Smoking Gun, which unearthed Marriott’s September traffic citation for failing to pay a $2.50 highway toll, also brought to light his modeling career. ”Evan was short of cash and looking for work,” California Muscle VP Simon Nicholson told the Smoking Gun, according to the Daily News. ”He had a great face, so we did a shoot with him,” Nicholson said of the $19,000-a-year construction worker, who made his TV debut Monday night. The photos were shot in 2001, and they earned Marriott $1,000. Hey, 999 more sessions in spandex jocks, and he really will be a millionaire.
