Want to marry a millionaire in China? You'd better be hot and know how to clean house.
At least that's the message from a high profile mainland contest, and not everyone's happy about it.
Last week in Jinan, China, more than 1,300 women wearing exquisite make-up and elegant dresses were asked to iron, cook, and tie a necktie. The goal: to qualify for a competition that will match 50 women with 50 millionaires for a blind date this July.
The men's identities are kept secret, but their net worth isn't. Organizers say they're worth an average of $25 million each.

In addition to being judged on their looks and cleaning ability, the women were asked to draw a picture for psychologists to evaluate. Organizers also interviewed their friends and colleagues to assess their associates and connections.
While the women spared no efforts to show that they would make perfect wives, the millionaires were not at the scene. Only when the field has been whittled down to 50 women will the millionaires show up for a final party.
