The Joe Schmo Show
    #2053202 - 10/29/03 10:56 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Did anyone else catch this program? Before it began, I saw ads for it on TNN during Star Trek. I had dismissed it as another "stupid Reality Show", but it's concept piqued my interest. I tuned in one evening, and became totally wrapped up in Matt Kennedy Gould.

The show's concept was this: To be filmed in a mansion, 8 contestants would compete through a series of "immunity challenges" and "eviction ceromonies" in which the contestants would vote eachother out. The last person standing in the mansion would be the winner of $100,000.

But none of this was real. All of the contestants, except Matt, were actors. All of the drama was scripted, the games and challenges rigged. The entire show was built around "the regular Joe", but orchestrated around Matt, who was the only person there who believed he was competing for the cash. Throughout the course of the program, it became increasingly clear that Matt was a wonderful, honest, kind man of integrity, who had a huge heart.

Last night was the end of the series, when they revealed to Matt at the last eviction ceromony that all of his enemies and companions had only been actors. It was heart-breaking to watch; he was in tears at how much they brought out his beautiful personality and put it infront of him. They changed his life, without a doubt.

Talk about it!

Myself, I haven't seen it, but I am quite the fan of Ali G in Da USA! Fuck yeah!

I don't even know if they have it in the United States, or if it was, it might have been awhile ago (a lot of shows on Norwegian television from the U.S. are sort of old), but all I know is that what I have seen, it is pretty fucking funny.

So, anyone seen it? :grin:
Peace.

I also dismissed it as "another dumb reality show" that I scoffed at when I saw it advertised. But then I saw the second or third episode of the series and I was hooked from then on. I thought it was very clever and it was cool seing such an elaborate hoax unfold. All the characters were cliches yet they were made to be interesting and new somehow. And the girls were hot, which always makes a show better. The last episode last night was fun to watch when the whole scheme was revealed to Matt. They really found the perfect person to play Joe Schmo. Matt seems like one of the kindest people out there. I thought it was cool how he said he would spend some of his $100,000 seeing Phish.

Yea this show was funny shit, after watching a couple of the shows i was hooked. And for playing this huge joke on matt,  he was pretty kool about the whole thing.  I would have been pissed, but then the money would of made me feel better. And a Phish fan too, i would of never known.

I got completely hooked on this show from the first episode, which is pretty rare for me.

He was such a nice guy, a little bit of a goof at times, but it was some of the most inventive TV I've seen in a while. Good stuff.

My friend was a PA for the show. He said everybody working on it felt so bad for the guy because he was really nice. Also, they were constantly almost blowing the whole thing, but some how managed to save it every time.

It looks stupid though.

It was a good show.

The immunity challenges kicked ass. Naked chix....

I saw the last episode.. Looked interesting.

But when he was asking that goofy looking guy whether he was an actor or not, cause that was his best friend the last few months..eh.. thats a horrible thing to do to a person. Everything hes been doing those few months has been a lie basically, had it been me I might of gone insane.

That whole show only spanned about a week not months. I think that makes a big difference.
