    Don't look now, but I think Average Joe Thom G is visiting this room.

    Gargamel - I noticed that yesterday, when asked questions about the show and the other guys, Thom said he couldn't comment because of some legal mumbo jumbo. So...I think we lost him...

    Bill's last name is Hansen.

    Not Henson? I was wondering if he was related to Jim Henson or something...I thought he might have been the Muppet Heir Apparent.

    Agreed!

    However, Gargamel's point about the instant fame is a good one. For instance, I saw Robert and Botti on Extra or Access Hollywood last night. It really must be something else to be flung into the limelight. I bet these guys can barely leave the house without someone recognizing them.

    That said, I doubt the Joes are the types to let it all get to there head, particularly Bill, who seemed to hang back a bit in Episode 1.

    You should easily be Bill's publicist.

Claiming to be someone in touch with their feelings could be viewed as a mechanism for lasting on a show. So in that instance, maybe it does really go to their heads. People who want to survive will do anything.
    On any other show, Gargamel, I would have to agree with you. But the entire premise of this show is that these guys are the NICE guys - no objectives, no thinly-veiled agendas.
    Having said that, Bill is not the most aggressive player. I would have to give that honor to David Dashel (spelling?).

    You are on a flight of fancy my friend. Time to get back to the mother ship.
    Perhaps I'm wrong, but wasn't the last reality show celeb to endorse a product that Colleen from Survivor 1. I think she had a chapstick commercial.

    or Bill could do something like, "I may play an average guy on tv, but I calculate averages in real life..." like a public service announcement for accounting firms or something.
