    "Average Joe" Goes For Round 2

    NBC goes for second Average

    LOS ANGELES -- Average Joes everywhere are celebrating.

    NBC says it will premiere a second edition of its reality show Average Joe soon after the current series ends.

    "We thought we had something special there, and we put a second cycle in the can before Average Joe ever went on the air," says NBC Entertainment president Jeff Zucker.

    Average Joe, which airs Mondays, has been a minor hit for NBC, drawing a little over 10 million viewers a week in the U.S. On the show, former Kansas City Chiefs cheerleader Melana Scantlin chooses from a group of guys who don't conform to the typical dating-show aesthetic standards.

    Something tells me they switch the tables (a la FLOM) and Adam is the lucky bachelor with 16 average Janes.
    If you go through a lot of hammers each month, I don't think it necessarily means you're a hard worker.
    It may just mean that you have a lot to learn about proper hammer maintenance.

    NBC's official press release is out now:

    'AVERAGE JOE: HAWAII' SIMMERS WITH TROPICAL TWISTS AND TURNS FOR NEW CROP OF AVERAGE JOES, PREMIERING JANUARY 5 ON NBC

    New Beauty Travels to Island Paradise to Meet Her Prince Charming, But Instead Finds “Average Joes”

    BURBANK, Calif. -- November 26, 2003 -- Hot on the heels of this Fall’s hit “Average Joe,” NBC premieres the second installment of the series, “Average Joe: Hawaii,” on Monday, January 5 (10-11 p.m. ET).

    This new series was taped before the first series ever aired, thus protecting the twist.

    “As soon as we saw the first tapes of the original ‘Average Joe,’ we knew there was rich potential for a second helping of this twisted take on the dating show. The fact that we taped both series before either hit the air allows for the surprise twists to hit the new participants with the same impact they had on the original show,” said Zucker.

    In this new series, the crown of “Average Joe’s” former beauty queen and NFL cheerleader Melana Scantlin is passed on to another former Miss USA contestant and model, who is swept away to a secluded island paradise with the promise of romance to be found among a group of 18 Prince Charmings. With no way of knowing the secret twist to “Average Joe” in advance, our new beauty must decide how to proceed when she meets the unexpected group of guys with big personalities, but admittedly average looks, ranging from a 5-foot-3 engineer to 340 pound sewage contractor.

    While finding themselves on what one dismayed ‘Average Joe’ describes as “nerd island,” the guys happily greet their beauty unaware that in a few short weeks a group of eight traditional dating-show-studs will join the competition to vie for her affection. As the series proceeds, new takes on the twists of “Average Joe” are in store for the audience along with brand new dramatic surprises; and tensions between the two groups of men reach new levels in several emotionally charged ‘joe’ vs. ‘jock’ showdowns.

    “Average Joe: Hawaii” is a production of NBC Studios and Krasnow Productions. Stuart Krasnow (“Dog Eat Dog,” “Weakest Link”) and Andrew Glassman (“Average Joe”) are executive producers, Jason Raff is supervising producer.

    Average Joe 2 goes to Hawaii!

    As most of you know Average Joe has been ordered for another season. The exective producer for the show says they have found the most dorky-looking bunch possible, and these guys make the others look like Adonises. The article also says that it takes place in Hawaii and will start Jan. 5. The new girl is an artist, a former beauty queen from a known pageant and is a brunette. She is extremely intelligent and very commpassionate. They say like Melana she was also very upset and was in debelief and angered. The exective producer also says that he didnt want to repeat the first night-but the second time-filmed last summer-was much worse. He said it was a long night and they even saw the sun come out.

    Sounds like the next one is WAY more extreme. They have a picutre of 2 of the guys and let me just say these guys make the first seasons look like models. I found this article VERY good
