The Next Internet Millionaire – Will It Be You?

Internet marketing guru, Joel Comm has started the world’s first Internet based reality show call The Next Internet Millionaire.

In late 2006, Joel Comm and Eric Holmlund (one of Joel’s real-life joint venture partners) were discussing what they could possibly do for their next project.

Joel got the idea for a reality show, and over the next couple of months it evolved into The Next Internet Millionaire.

The show is an ideal outlet for Joel’s desire to reach the masses with the money-making power of the internet. The creative process has been exciting and synergistic, as Eric’s production company, Deluge Films, has joined Joel’s team in what will be a monumental achievement in the internet marketing community.

Twelve contestants will receive an all expenses paid trip to learn from the masters of marketing while they compete for cash, prizes, and the ultimate joint venture with Joel Comm.

Joel is accepting auditions from May 9th – June 6th 2007. It’s free to submit an audition. You could win an all expenses paid trip to learn from Joel and the team of Internet masters. You will compete on the show for $25,000 cash, bonus prizes, and the opportunity to make a million dollars doing a joint venture with Joel Comm.

        dot info domain,
        You probably know the proverb…” Where there is will, there is a way”.

        If anybody is very much devoted to his goal, he must be successful in the long run.

    Interesting… internet millionare. There will be hundreds of people entering– it will be like 1:X00000XXX… chance. πŸ˜‰

    1. that means you’re not good enough

      for anyone that’s good, the chance is 1:1

    2. I know, I can’t even win a shirt let alone a cool mill. πŸ˜₯

      1. Matt Huggins says:

        So does that mean I should enter if I won a shirt? Maybe my luck will hold up. πŸ˜‰

        1. I think it’ll be pushing it LOL but who knows? πŸ˜‰

    3. Marc says:

      Even if you feel that those are truly the odds, why not go for it. $25 000 and a chance at a million. It’s worth tossing your ring in the hat.

  3. Cool. I might enter it. Thanks John.

  4. Rich Minx says:

    I don’t think Joel and I could work happily together; he could never compete with my awesome rate of 4c a week.

    1. Matt Huggins says:

      Utterly intimidating!

    2. I’m with you. I’m not sure he’d know what to do with my $2 a week income!! πŸ˜›

  5. Ontora says:

    Sounds like an extremely boring show. I will be surprised if they can turn an internet marketing class into an interesting reality series.

    Maybe they will mix it up a bit by have the contestants live in the Amazon or something while building websites. A combination of Survivor, The Office, and The Apprentice.

    1. interesting senario

    3. Marc says:

      Just need to toss in a few drama queens (either male or female, not discriminating here) and some interesting competitions and it could be watchable.

      I mean heck, I watched Mark Cuban’s show for an episode or so πŸ™‚

    4. The production values look TERRIBLE!I can’t believe more people haven’t commented on how bad the promo looks and sounds. Not even close to professional.

      You can get away with shitty quality a lot easier on the web than you can when you are producing video. I’m not sure Joel Comm can make the jump unless he hires some pros to actually produce the show.

  6. It will be me. Why? Because I’m young, smart, aggressive, good looking, and modest. πŸ˜†

    1. hmmm, it will be you all right…

    2. Marc says:

      I’m good enough, I’m smart enough and dog gonnit, people like me.

  7. James says:

    I think I am on Joel’s list. I should probably read some of those emails or unsubscribe.

  8. Hmn…Why would you want to waste your time ‘trying’ to make a video/resume/whatever plus having to go to some ‘foreign’ country/state just to have a ‘chance’ to do joint venture with Mr. Joe, NOT MAKING A MILLION BUCK!

    Personally, I’d rather save sometime work up your credo (and then do the joint venture on your own). Once you make a name for yourself like John, you won’t need to ‘apply’ to have a ‘chance’ for a ‘JV’.

    1. Marc says:

      Some of us like playing the lottery πŸ™‚

      1. Leftblank says:

        I doubt that, people think they’ve got a chance, no one likes to lose :p

  9. John, you should audition for the show. Show them how to make millions.

    1. they wouldn’t want john there

      he’s a millionaire already

      besides give those who aren’t a chance

  10. Ankur says:

    Was this post on JC before?

    1. John Chow says:

      Nope, but Shoemoney posted it as well. You may have saw it there.

  11. sami says:

    The guy, Joel Comm, is directing the video-linked website to his one-page-sales website, where he tries to sell you $24,591.00 worth of informational products, for only $37. Wow, what a steal!

    I thought John Chow would smarter than this and not take his bait.

  12. Chad says:

    C’mon John, this has ebook scam written all over it. I thought you knew better than this.

    1. Kumiko says:

      I agree. As I was watching it I thought, “He’s going to try and sell me an ebook at the end of this video”. Did anyone else notice:

      – It’s CHANCE to make a million. Even I can offer you a chance.

      – To get any information at all about the show, you have to enter your email address. My guess is that Joel is building a list.

      – The photos of the internet masters he’s gathered flashed by VERY quickly and you couldn’t see who they were.

      – I don’t doubt he’s made a lot of money, but the video looked pretty cheap.

      – The smoke monster from ‘Lost’ in the background?


      1. I thought I saw the smoke monster! Wasn’t sure whether it was that, or just a result of me spending too long trying to figure out some actionscript in flash!

      2. Dave says:

        I think I saw the smoke monster too. But in fairness, the prize is more than a “chance”. It’s $25k cash prize plus a jv which means it will be some more $$ even if its less than a million. Building a list? well yeah that’s how most companies make money online. and you can see the list of marketing masters at

  13. that’s how he made his millions

    to be fair, it’s a convincing intro

    in term of reality tv show, it’s as goog as you can get

  14. Oh my god, John.

    You are so biased.

    Joel Comm sells exactly what Seven Day System is selling.

    That is where he gets his millions.

    Now, you are showing this.

    Isn’t it ironic?

    1. Are you still here? πŸ™„

  15. yvrbs says:

    you are really reaching when you post shit like this πŸ™

  16. James says:

    This guy needs to get a wardrobe change, and his dubbed voice sounds like an old ninja movie. He makes millions yet his video is awful.

  17. The prize can be a bit blinding; if there’s indeed a catch, I don’t think it’ll matter. I haven’t even heard of this Internet game show until today. But of course, contests aren’t really my forte LOL so I’m not surprised.

  18. Looks interesting… ! I follow along for the laughs. Doubt that we’ll learn half as much that a good book on marketing or even a halfway decent website could teach. John Chow’s website is quite educational in that respect. Dunno who’ll watch this TV show though.

  19. Ankur says:

    John, are you applying? πŸ˜† 😈

  20. Ankur says:

    And does this guy have ANY PROOF of him making anything more than a few hundred bucks scamming people?

  21. Is this like a nerd version of “who wants to be the next pussycat doll”??? 😯

  22. Hey, just had a great idea, why doesn’t that guy team up with Michael Nivola for the next series of the amazing race?

  23. ohhhh my

    wat an awesome clip it is

  24. Sean says:

    That’s insane! Sounds like an awesome opportunity.

  25. Not sure how many people will watch an internet reality show. Hopefully it will be good.

  26. Wolf Stone says:

    Sure sounds interesting but i’m not sure…if enough people will tune in to watch this !!

  27. Ades says:

    Nice way to collect emails…

  28. Jaisne Blue-Sexton says:

    Very interesting. You ripped into Michael Nivola, but where do you think he learned it from? JOEL COMM that’s who. And now you’re promoting a contest by Joel to teach more people to scam. Joel has come a long way from the guy who sold that site to Yahoo. He’s now the king of net cons, and is neck deep in teaching others how to do it.

    1. Wow. Jaisne.
      You are a rare gem.
      You see through John Chow.

      But I didn’t learn it from Joel Comm, and no I am not scamming anyone.

      You sound rational. Let me know why you think it’s a scam?

      Selling electronic products is a scam?

      Tell me please.

  29. Jaisne Blue-Sexton says:

    At least John didn’t use an affiliate link to promote it, unlike Joel’s business/scamming partner, Eric Holmlund. On his blog, where he lyingly promotes himself as a ‘non-guru’, Eric ‘reviews’ various business ‘opportunities’ which are all ‘get rich quick’ schemes/scams, many of which he is a partner in. Some of them cost a grand a month.

    And when people complain that the program, product, advice, seminars, etc, didn’t work, they get told that they aren’t working hard enough, or they aren’t dedicated enough, and like the suckers they are, they often pay more!

    These people, these so-called gurus, are no different than MLM (multi-level) scumbags to scam. For example, the upper echelon (s)Amway people made their money from selling audiotapes, cds, videos and books to the gullible who hoped to follow their example and get rich by selling soap.

    Only they didn’t get rich by selling soap, so there was no example to follow. They got rich by selling bogus motivational products to silly people who thought there was a secret to getting rich quick. Some of them even owned the companies which literally produced the books and tapes.

    We all know people who have tried to recruit us to MLM with promises of big riches. Some of us have even gone to a presentation. And some have even signed up, and guess what? Almost everyone who did has paid money, sometimes a lot, and seen little return, if any. And the real idiots ok dreamers have basements full of boxes of soap or cosmetics.

    Anyway, this new breed of sleazy gurus can now get rich by telling other people how to get rich, only the people they are telling don’t get rich, of course, just scammed. When you see these earnings reported, they ARE real, but not from doing what they are telling you to do, but from them selling you that mostly bogus advice.

    They promote each other in one giant circle jerk of guru-ness, saying how great one is, or how renowned is another, when really, all they have done is put out a crappy ebook or slapped up a sales page. Basically, they lie for one another so they can all lie to people looking for a shortcut to wealth.

    Looking at your sales page and your techniques, you have followed the Joel Comm method to a T. You say you didn’t learn it from him? Well, he was one of the pioneers, so you learned it from one of his students or his guru friends. They all know each other and all use the same pimp and pressure techniques.

    You’re probably an ok guy, just looking to make a living, and I don’t blame you for that, but what you’re pushing, and how you’re pushing it is ridiculous. And in some jurisdictions, it counts as fraud and racketeering, too, so take note.

    A lot of these so-called gurus are going to be taken down sooner or later on RICO statutes. White collar crime is getting some seriously excellent long term sentences these days. Just so you know, those convicted federally have to serve 85% of their sentences before they can be even considered for parole.

    1. Thanks for that.
      Very informative, and insightful.

      The best piece of information I have ever read to date. Thanks for the sincere concern. I will take note of that.

      But my friend, we are selling products that you and I are using everyday. Do you listen to audiobooks? Do you watch videos? Read books? Well, we sell those too.

      I am pretty sure we are not selling get rick quick schemes. We are showing people exactly how to earn money, and in fact, they do. We won’t be pushing them to keep buying things from us. We have nothing to sell to them to make them better at it. We even have a learning center all dedicated for their learning of Internet Marketing, all for free. We earn mostly from PPC ads from these pages. As for ebooks, software and scripts, mp3s, videos, we leave it to them, if they want to make a purchase.

      I do agree with you about the gurus. I hate them myself. But thanks for the note, made me think, whether I am allowing myself to be just like them, sleazy. I will seriously think about it.

      Thanks a million! πŸ™‚

  30. Sorry but John’s on the upandup here, don’t quite know why you start “Looking at your sales page and your techniques, you have followed the Joel Comm method to a T.” with the personal pronoun switch. Looks like you’re having a go at JohnChow…


    1. This person is referring to me. A teacher that cannot comprehend, is a bad teacher to teach English.

    2. Jaisne Blue-Sexton says:

      Attention InvestorBlogger – I am using your name so you can be sure that I am addressing you and don’t get confused again: I was not talking about John Chow, but Michael Nivola.

      As for ‘having a go’ at John Chow, I already said that I thought his ripping into Michael while promoting Joel and Eric was contradictory. That’s not a ‘go’. It’s an observation, and a valid one. I also later noted that John didn’t use an affiliate link like so many who do who don’t like something. That’s positive. And having a divergent opinion is not a bad thing, by the way.

      I don’t know how many ‘opportunities’ Michael has offered, but it can’t be anywhere close to the number that Joel and Eric pump out week after week with the sole intention of enriching themselves at the financial and emotional expense of gullible people.

      And overall, I must say that Michael has been a pretty good sport with all the not-so positive feedback.
