I imagine the train of thought was something like: "Holy cow, One Of Us just made a million dollars! That's AWESOME!" "Ha, I wonder what your average geek would spend $1M dollars on?... hey, comic premise!" And they used Rich as the set-up to the premise because, well, he was the set-up to the premise. Nothing personal!
    Yeah, I have to post here also to say that. I know that a lot of people are getting mean to Rich, but I don't see this as one of them. I mean, don't let the stress of your success rob your fun side Rich!
