Former ‘Average Joe’ Adam Mesh Begins New Search for Love in Four-part Series
BURBANK, Calif. -- January 14, 2004 -- NBC will premiere “Average Joe: Adam Returns,” a four-part series starring Adam Mesh who was runner-up for the heart of “Average Joe” beauty Melana Scantlin in the original series. “Average Joe: Adam Returns” will premiere Monday, March 15 (10-11 p.m ET), it was announced today by Jeff Zucker, President, NBC Entertainment, News and Cable Group.
Nearly 20 million people watched as Adam Mesh had his heart broken in the dramatic season finale of “Average Joe.” Series star Melana told Adam, “Tonight, the romance has to end,” then boarded a private jet with Jason Peoples, choosing Jason’s “pretty boy” looks over Adam’s charm, wealth and sense of humor.
But now the romance will continue - this time with Adam calling the shots - as he dates some of the tens of thousands of women who have tried to contact him since the broadcast.
The morning after the finale aired, the NBC switchboard was flooded with phone calls from women eager to take up where Melana left off as the special woman in Adam’s life. Emails for Adam swamped the inbox at NBC.com, and his personal website has received more than one million hits.
