The “Bayou Billionaires” Are Your New Favorite Reality TV Family

How do rednecks spend millions of dollars? CMT’s latest reality series “Bayou Billionaires” found out by documenting a Southern family who got rich virtually overnight. Let’s just say that if you don’t yet know the eccentric Dowden family, you will soon.

About a year ago, a gas company installed equipment in Kitten and Gerald Dowden’s backyard and turned the family into instant millionaires. They’re spending the money as fast as they can — with CMT’s cameras documenting all of their extravagant purchases along the way.
