In My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiancé, Randi Coy attempts to pull off television's largest con on her unsuspecting family, by introducing them to her unknown "fiancé" in the hope of making it through an outlandish wedding ceremony to win a million-dollar prize. Unbeknownst to Randi is that her bumbling "fiancé" is not another reality contestant like herself, but is actually actor Steven Bailey, whose job is to cause as much mischief as possible for the Coy family.

My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiancé is produced by Rocket Science Laboratories. Chris Cowan and Jean-Michel Michenaud are executive producers. Ray Giuliani is co-executive producer. Claudia DiFalco serves as the host.
