Let's dive in, shall we?
You've seen the ads. And you may be wondering, so what is the Event?

ABC is ready to pay out some more Dirty Sexy Money tonight, and in this video Blair Underwood previews what's ahead for game-player/all-around-player Simon Elder. Blair says that the "I Love You" Simon unleashes in the premiere is part of a "mysterious but obvious agenda," adding that Elder's "strategy is sometimes reverse psychology."Underwood also weighs in on Simon's prospects for finding real love (at the 1:40 mark), as well as the slick one's Achilles heel (2:15). He then maintains he's a one-show actor this TV season, but says he would love to pay Old Christine (3;10) a return visit.
