WTF? Average Joe was on tonight?? Ugh! Not only did I miss most of last nights show, I missed the beginning of tonights show too. Ugh. Must confess, still missed not seeing Josh at the end (erm, nothing against the final two of course :)
I just have to say...
I am so impressed! And shocked. I did not expect Anna to eliminate Josh and Josh. But, I am excited because I was so upset when Nathan got cut. And then happy when he came back. So far he has been my favorite and I am rooting for him all the way. I can't wait to see what happens.

I am SO confused. I only caught the last 5 minutes of Average Joe (so basically, the eliminations). I know not many people post here, but if anyone could explain tonights show I would really appreciate it. Especially, how did it end up with 5 people at the end?? Confused.

Well, I thought I'd introduce myself as I am new to this little community here, but not new to watching the show. My name is Stephani, my userinfo tells a hell of a lot more about me, so does my myspace for that matter. I have watched every season and never missed an episode. Reading that last sentence back, it makes me sound pretty pathetic, I am, I know it. Anyway, I think there should be more posts, I think it'd be cool if there was a post like after every ep... just to get some discussion goin around here. That'd be cool. Just a little input. Maybe next week someone will start some discussion about the episode and its highlights or something. I won't, I'm just sayin that now... but maybe someone will. OoOkay... I wrote more than I intended to and if it made no sense at all, I am sorry. I just dont feel like looking it over at this point to make sure that it did. So, bye-bye for now, I guess. Current Mood: apathetic

Okay.. finally got to watch the premiere of Average Joe (the Joes Strike back). Now, is it just me, or is that Josh guy (hope I have his name right) from NY, New York, not exactly "average" looking. Sure, they threw some glasses on him, but I think the guy is hot! Or is it just me? I also thought one of the first guys to get kicked off.. (uhm.. name escapes me. I think he owned a restaurant?) was alright looking too. Curious to see how this season turns out (although, the whole makeover twist kinda scares me).

Average Joe 4 Starts June, 28th on NBC
i noticed that this community hasn't been updated in a little while so i thought i'd drop in and share the news... Averave Joe 4: The Joes Strike Back is scheduled to air this coming June 28th @ 8pm on NBC.
the first 'teaser/trailer' for Average Joe 4: The Joes Strike Back has also been found.
you can check it out on the NBC website. the link is below.
(scroll down about half-way)
I laughed so hard when i saw the teaser. I had forgotten about all of the silly stuff that happened while i was on the show.
I'll try and keep this community updated on whatever i find out as I'll be one of the 'Average Joes' you're going to see in the upcoming season.
and for the record... i've never even seen any of the previous seasons of Average Joe but from what i experienced while on the show... this season is going to be a great watch.

We just started the 3rd season with Adam.
I just wanna say that Larissa was an idiot for not picking Brian. Why did she pick Gil anyway? What made him so special, beside the fact that he looked good? Not that I think he looked all that, but I bet she thought so, and that's the only reason she decided to take him. Brian was so much better and sweeter, I felt so bad for him. I even cried when he left on the bus. I felt good that Gil decided to leave her, she got what she deserved (don't know what happened after the show, but when I was watching her say: "maybe my instincts were wrong, I felt happy. That shows she's the shallow one here. Current Mood: chipper

Does anybody know when the next season of Average Joe is coming out? A friend of mine was on it, and he refuses to tell me any information as to when it aires on television.
Hello, I'm new here.
Here in Israel they just started the 1st season 4 weeks ago and I became an addict. Today was the episode where the 3 "hunks" (Alex, Jason and Mike) entered the house. I'd like to ask: who did Melana chose at the end (I don't care if it's a spolier), was it Adam? I hope so, coz he was the cutest. I saw his URL: how come he became so popular, is it coz he was chosen or did he do other stuff (play in other TV programs etc)?
And am I the only one that thinks Melana isn't that pretty and way too skinny?
See you. Current Mood: bored

NBC planning 'Plain Jane' spinoff of 'Average Joe' for fall schedule
Still giddy over the success that its Average Joe reality show has had in improving the network's Monday nights at 10 PM ratings performance, NBC has announced that it is planning additional installments of the franchise, starting with a gender-reversed Plain Jane edition of the series which will premiere this fall.
"We asked ourselves, why should the Average Joes have all the fun?" NBC Primetime Development President Kevin Reilly explained to his audience announcing the series at a recent advertiser meeting, according to Zap2It.com.
Dubbing NBC "The Equal Opportunity Network," Reilly explained that Plain Jane will be produced by Andrew Glassman and Stuart Krasnow, the same folks behind the first three Average Joe series, and follow a similar pattern as the network's first two Joe installments, only with the program's gender roles reversed.
Instead of featuring a beautiful woman seeking love from among a group of average looking male suitors, Plain Jane will feature a muscular handsome man being romanced a group of normal looking women. As in the Melana Scantlin and Larissa Meek editions of the series, the hunky bachelor will be asked to look past the exterior and search for inner beauty -- with a similar assortment of twists, turns, and introduction of not-so average looking women expected.
The network's third installment of its Average Joe franchise, Average Joe: Adam Returns, a rather straight-laced four-episode installment of the series, stars first series runner-up Adam Mesh and concludes this coming Monday, April 5 with a special two-hour finale. While not the ratings hit of the first installment, the program has continued to perform well for the network, premiering to 10.7 million viewers. Current Mood: blah

article on Rachel
Reality hits home for teacher
By JAMES WALSH
THE JOURNAL NEWS
(Original publication: April 2, 2004)It would seem that life in a second-grade classroom would be enough reality for anyone.
Not for Rachel Goetz, though. She has lost her job as a Clarkstown teacher for appearing on NBC's "Average Joe: Adam Returns," instead of being in her classroom at the Lakewood Elementary School in Congers.
Goetz, 24, is the daughter of Michael and Sarah Goetz, educators who retired with almost 70 years of combined service in the Clarkstown school district.
Their daughter was compelled to resign in her second year after she decided to compete before a television audience for the affections of Adam Mesh, a stock trader from Manhattan.
Goetz was one of a legion of women across the country who were smitten with the 28-year-old Mesh, who reality television Web sites say is rumored to be rich.
NBC-TV was awash in thousands of e-mails and videotapes when the network began auditioning the dating hopefuls.
The exercise ended with Goetz joining 18 other women from 12 states and a province of Canada when the show aired last month.
During the filming, the women competed in activities as varied as stock trading and assembling a basketball backstop. Their reward for a job well done was being picked by Adam for a date. Then there was dinner, wine and perhaps a kiss or two in a hot tub.
In one episode, women cried and appeared devastated when they saw a tape of Mesh kissing their cohorts.
"This show is based on an interest in Adam," Caroline Perez, the show's publicist, said this week when asked what attributes were sought in the contestants.
Indeed, that was Goetz's impetus after seeing Mesh lose out on a previous show when he competed for a woman's attention.
Nearly 20 million viewers watched Mesh's heart-broken moment, according to the Reality TV World Web site.
"He just came across as this all-around great guy who didn't get the girl," Goetz said. "I thought he should have won. He was so great, so adorable, and when I heard he was having his own show I thought that maybe I could be on it; that I'd like to meet this guy."
Goetz wouldn't discuss whether she was dating then or now — such revelations were against the show's rules — and she wouldn't say whether she eventually won Mesh's heart. Also against the rules.
Following this week's show, Goetz was one of five finalists. The winner will be revealed in a two-hour show on Monday beginning at 9 p.m.
Regardless of her dating prowess, Goetz will be unemployed as of May 1.
Now, that's reality.
Clarkstown schools Superintendent William Heebink said it was unreasonable for Goetz to think she could leave her teaching duties for three weeks.
The leave was denied by the Board of Education, which accepted Goetz's resignation on March 25.
"It would be difficult to operate a school district," Heebink said, "when a teacher or any other employee took three weeks' time whenever there was something of high personal interest to them."
The problem, Goetz said, was that time was so short, and planning so unpredictable.
She applied for a spot on the show in late January. Preliminary rounds of interviews then followed in New York and Los Angeles during a school vacation.
On Feb. 9, five days before the vacation, she wrote to Heebink requesting a 15-day unpaid leave to pursue "the opportunity of a lifetime."
The school board rejected the leave three days later.
By the time she was notified of that decision, she had been picked for the show and taken for three weeks of filming in Palm Springs.
As is standard for reality television, the contestants were not allowed to call home or receive calls during the filming, so Goetz said she was unaware that her leave had been denied until she returned to New City on March 15.
Telephone calls from the outside, or conversations about what was going on elsewhere would lend confusion to the show, said Andrew Glassman, executive producer.
"Rachel is confident, smart, beautiful, had great charisma on camera and is friendly to everyone," Glassman said of what led to her being chosen for the show.
Perez, the show's publicist, was unaware of any other contestants' losing a job over the program.
Ann Marie McGrade, president of the Lakewood PTA, wouldn't talk about the matter.
"I just don't feel comfortable discussing it," McGrade said.
Goetz said her resignation was forced, and that she was assigned to be a substitute teacher through May 1, but not at Lakewood.
"I was surprised that I wasn't allowed back in my classroom," Goetz said as she sat in the kitchen of her parents' New City home, where she lives.
"If I can be in other schools," she said, "why can't I put forth my efforts on behalf of my students?"
There was no prize money, Goetz said, and she had no design on fame or fortune.
"I was there to meet Adam," she said. "My heart is in teaching. My intent was to meet him, have the experience and then come back."
Goetz speaks between answering her cell phone and an oven timer. She's watching over dinner until her mother, who's a substitute teacher in her retirement, comes home.
Several balloons hang motionless in the corner of a room containing a giant television screen. They're remnants of a welcome-home party when family and friends joined Goetz to view a segment of the show.
Goetz rushes through a paper plate of matzo farfel before heading off to graduate school classes. She plans to earn her master's in literacy this year.
She'll also be typing resumes for a teaching job.
"I still feel that in life you're rarely presented with a chance for an experience of a lifetime," Goetz said. "You need to grab onto those. It was an experience, but I'm grounded enough to know that I still want to be a teacher."

OK.....Not that I'm a huge fan of the reality TV buzz going on here, but I have managed to decipher their plan for America. There is a trend that I'm noticing that goes something like this. Average Joe gets some REALLY fine chick to fall in love with a number of dorky/out-of-shape/average joes, then introduces a bunch of surprise studs and ultimately makes her decided between the practical, emotional, average joe, and some chip n dale's dancer with the IQ of a doorstop. They lead you on like CRAZY and blueball you into thinking she is in love with the nice guy, and then like a slap in the face she picks the dumbass model.
This is annoying enough, but wait....there's more.....they proceed to capitalize on this poor guys losses by putting him in a NEW show where he gets to pick between a bunch of average janes.....the just like last time, halfway through the show they bombard the set with a bunch of voluptuous vixens and this average joe, turned-stud-muffin is now faced with a decision similar to the one that screwed him over. And would you believe it??? i didn't......Adam picked the dumb bitch that he had ABSOLUTELY NO chemistry with what-so-ever......the other girl (rachel) even had a better body in my opinion (on top of being basically perfect for him), but I guess she didn't have that luscious "i wanna suck your cock daily" face. (sorry for being blunt) Now they can start casting for the next show which will take advantage of the horribly broken heart of yet another poor soul.
To conclude, it is clearly evident to me that these shows are teaching the young adults of our great country that a firm, tanned hourglass body complete with a permanently "out-to-lunch" mental capacity is a absolute gold mine in dating. More importantly, the simple idea of finding someone that we are able to connect with emotionally and intimately on a personal level to enrich each others' lives and ambitions will soon vanish like a fart in the wind.
This is the United States, so I guess I shouldn't be that surprised........i sure hope they forced Adam to make the decision he did......otherwise, what an ass..... Current Mood: pessimistic

NBC SUCKS Not ADAM
I think NBC rigged everything, ANd they probably forced him to choose Samantha to make him look like a fucking idiot on screen for going back, after getting dumped on Average Joe 1.
I blame NBC they wont show everything and they always show the one they want to look stupid, think about it, THe first one, they made Jason look dumb, she picked him, the made gil looking like he wanted an acting career she picked him, see there are alwyas stuff you might not know. For example, Sam could of been sweet off screen and there could of been more than just what they showed, same with Rachel. Even with Gil and Larrissa and Melena And Jayson. You dont know what goes on, you dont get the full story.
So why judge adam. I just relazied that I was being an Ass for making fun of Melena and Larissa, but who dont know the story. So its not that bad.
So if anything is to blame, its NBC, Not Adam/ Current Mood: creative
all i can say is, i hope they're happy. because in my eyes, he picked the person who isn't right for him. but then again, what do i know? NBC has edited and changed everything to make it seem more dramatic.. if they didn't, the show would be less interesting.
i liked rachel.. too bad for adam. to me, it seems like he's missing out on a relationship with a great girl.
