Joe Millionaire fans, our boy Evan *meathead*(21 posts)

Joe Millionaire fans, our boy Evan *meathead*No_sprint

I'm really surprised the guy has enough brainpower to keep Zora around. She and Mojo would have been my final two. I too am very surprised Melissa is gone. BTW, nice panty shot editors! LOL They know their market. There's no cleavage shortage either.

Sara, oh my Sara. I like the double fisting wine at dinner with Melissa. She has that loose air to her. Not to say anything bad about that. Been there, done that. Did anyone hear the news that came out about her and her supposed little fetish videos? Anyway, gold digger indeed (though editing could have picked out all those little snippets only). If she is, she'll probably be the most broken at the news, and if she is, she's got *meathead* tricked fully backwards.

What a show... I just love it, cracks me up til no end when *meathead* gets that thoroughly hollow look on his face. Quote of the show *we're going to the French Riviera, not that I know anything about the French Riviera, but it's supposed to be nice*... Scopin' bulldozers in the Med. LOL

Sounds like Joe spent a lot of time sniffing the chemical fumes at the construction site. THose silly quotes he comes up with are so much fun. It is amazing that the girls have not said anything real bad about him, but most are as dumb as he is.

I disagree on Mojo though. SHe was a total gold digger. There was no chemistry between them. I thought Melissa would make it through. It was funny to watch Joe stare at her breasts during most of the date.

Zora is too quiet and seems to have a secret. Sarah seems like she is a lot of fun to be around. SHe has that sweet girl next door look, but I think the fact she made Bondage Videos makes her seem like she has a wild side.

I am just mad because I will be in for a few days. I will have to tape the last show and watch it when I get back ;(

Melissa's ditzy helpnessness tripped her up. THe more I'd see of her, the less appealing she became. She didn't like outdoor activities, couldn't cook, talked like a teenage groupie, she was just along for the ride. Joe got smart for once.

Zora, well like a scared dog, she's got issues. She really needs a man who has a lot of patience and a lot of love to give. I think her trump card over the others is that, although she may be high-maintenance on an emotional level, she's appears the least high-maintenance on a material level. Supposedly that's what Joe wants. But Sarah's been giving him something else...

Now Sarah is my hope to be the final one, because I want to see her reaction to the truth when it is revealed. I think the show is worried most about her potential to file a lawsuit, because last night's show was edited in a way that emphasized that Sarah exercised free will in all that she did.

We heard her say that Joe is not somebody she really feels that attracted to; she talked about the importance of money; of having a strategy to become the chosen one. And then on the date, Joe was shown walking her to her door at the end of the evening, and returning to his room. Shortly thereafter, Sarah boldly went to Joe's room, knocked on his door, and went in, to eventually end up sleeping with him (I'm reading between the lines here).

The bottom line is that Sarah, who is not terribly attracted to Joe the man, prostituted herself to keep in contention for the money and lifestyle that (she thinks) comes with the package.

And that's why the next and final episode will be fun to watch - will it be poor man's revenge for Sarah? or will poor Zora be queen for a minute and then cast back into her miserable reality of disappointment?

My final predicition - there will be no winner.

Are you kidding? I bet the waiver/covenant not to sue/disclosure they signed is 50 pages long and iron clad. Probably has an arbitration provision, too, and venue in Nigeria.

I'd be concerned about criminal issues, though. If Joe seduces one of them under false pretenses, in some places that is rape (lesser kind, but nonetheless...).

I agree -- no winner. He's dumb as a rock and they all know it. It's a game.

my bet is that he really is a trust fund baby -- the joke willbill
Feb 4, 2003 11:19 AM
have been on the audience. He fits the profile -- self-absorbed but genial, none too bright, vacant good looks (so I'm stereotyping a bit), series of menial jobs, including some that no one in their right mind ever would consider for a career, etc., etc.

a friend of mine went to a seminar on brewpubs and ended upbill
Feb 4, 2003 2:19 PM
hanging out with this very unassuming young dude who exhibited humble origins in all respects. Decent fellow, and after some suds, they actually started talking about going into business with each other. My friend was on his third career, and the young guy, who was young but not all THAT young, was still trying to figure out how to get his first one going.
Turns out my friend knew how to pick them. They did end up going into business together, largely on the financing strength of said younger dude. Turns out that younger dude's father had been a fraternity brother, I believe, of one Warren Buffet, the fabled "Oracle of Omaha," who had handled the family's investments since, like, the late fifties or something.
You can't always judge a book yada yada yada.
'Course, this is the same friend who got a call at his bachelor party from his mom. Through the alcoholic haze, I distinctly remember his saying into the phone, "What, Mom? I won what? Say that again? Wait, wait, wait, what are you saying? You entered for me? I won a white BMW? No way, Mom!"
He's had that kind of life.

wouldn't that be a royal FU to the audience that has watched this inane crap from the start?

An co-worker of my SO knows him. Ya know where he met him? Wrestling lessons for WWF wannabes in San Diego. This acquaintance helped our boy Evan fund the lessons with a personal loan/payment plan because he couldn't afford them.
not to put too fine a point on it, but trust fund babies some-bill
Feb 5, 2003 2:05 PM
times slum it -- hey, some substantial percentage of the Grateful Dead diaspora, with their hemp clothing, bare feet, and hand to mouth existence, are trust fund babies. Just because the guy said he had no money doesn't mean (a) he didn't or (b) he wouldn't soon.
my tongue is in my cheek here, but I don't think it's impossible.

I think Sarah's the only one he likely had sexual relations with, and the show made a point to show her - not him - forcing the issue when she made her uninvited late night visit to his room. I can see her causing trouble after the show because she's setting herself up for humiliation when the tables are turned, and she discovers that the gag's on her.

The Tonight show had the bondage tapes on last night, Jay says no nudity only tickling?!?
I thought Melissa was the gold digger really though she was going to get kicked last show. I'm sure the cleavage kept her around a little longer.
My bet is on Zora becuase of her middle class up bringing. JM likes the fact her dad is a bus driver and keeps telling her "trust me... things aren't as they seem"

The whole show is offensivemoneyman
Feb 4, 2003 10:10 AM
I watched last night as part of a captive audience, exercising in the same room where my wife was watching Joe for the first time. She likes reality shows for the whole psychology thing, watching the interaction between the characters. That's her professional schtick as well, but they drive me nuts. The people are about as deep as the Platte River in a drought, and their morals make tomcats seem like prudes. Apart from that, the shows are incredible moneymakers as they are very cheap to produce while drawing huge advertising revenue.

"Joe" (the show) is, IMO, the most offensive of the bunch. The twin sins of Joe lieing to the women and the women only interested in money makes all the people involved look like fools. And I guess that's the attraction to it. Perhaps there is some thought of this thing ending happily, with the woman looking Joe in the eyes and saying "I love you anyway", after he tells her he has been lieing to her the whole time, but if it were me it wouldn't be quite so pretty. I think Joe (and I know his real name is Evan) should be seriously worried about female gun ownership. To be humiliated like she will be in front of the world would cause me to give thought to serious bodily harm.

In the end, I am sure they will all get exactly what they deserve. After watching last night, I felt like I needed a shower, and it wasn't from the sweat generated by lifting weights in my house.

I am done with the show, and I don't intend to spend any more time reading about it, either.

Feb 4, 2003 10:12 AM
He just shoots every damn cork out of every damn champagne bottle, wherever he's at. I'm sure he doesn't even know how to get one out with or even without a towel. Did you see him hit himself in the face with one of the flying corks? LOLOLOLOLOL

The slurp and gulp subtitles were hilarious!
Joe is taking the fun out of the game!czardonic

He's playing not to lose -- keeping the women around who are least likely to care about his money and/or he is least likely to care about if she does and splits. I wanted to see him role the dice and pick one he actually wanted! Not settle for one that he feels least guilty about deceiving.

The one that caught his fancy in the beginning (Melissa) turned out to be a dud. Ever hear of the old saw, like attracts like?

Feb 4, 2003 2:40 PM
I think you are right on the mark on this one. It seems like he is keeping Zora around because she seems to be the more insecure one (and hence, under your theory, might not confront him as harshly when she finds out the truth).
I dont think he's a meatheadishmael
Feb 4, 2003 12:15 PM
and that quote in which he says he doesn't know anything about the french riviera doesnt make him stupid(if that's what youre implying by meathead), it just makes him humble and maybe not well traveled. I'd like to see how you came off if they put you on the show. First off, everything is so edited that it's practically a big lie, and second, the public loves to tear everyone on tv apart.
