Dang, Maveno! That must mean you have a life! Wow...wish I knew where to get one of those. Me, I get emotionally wrapped up - upset for the losers - ticked off when Mr/Ms got-there-show picks the person I didn't like...etc, etc. I wish I didn't get so addicted to these shows though. I do, however, realize that I don't know any of these people or what they went through. I don't lose sleep over any of the contestants (well, unless you count Brian Worth...I really liked that guy and felt so bad for him when he didn't). Like I said...I need a life :lol

I imagine viewership dropped dramatically for Average Joe Adam and that's why they truncated the series. P.S. Absolutely NO WAY would I watch an Average Joe Brian returns. He has advertised his shallowness so many times...he was NOT very endearing. I doubt fan letters were pouring in, if you get my drift.

And ratings weren't bad at all for the third series of this show, considering factors such as night, time slot, network, lead-in, and the fact that it's the 3rd in a series.
Almost all reality shows are "fake" and have a lot of "manupulative editing". It doesn't really seem to diminish enjoyment or viewership of the show, in almost all cases.
Thanks for clearing that up John...i thought this show was just as entertaining as the previous 2 AJ's...the stunts to me are what keeps the viewer who wouldn't normally watch these dating shows involved.
