What's next for Average Joe?
As I was watching the horrible (IMO) ending to the show last night, I thought to myself, "Oh well, now this show is three for three." :rolleyes They have proven that people (at least on tv) will always choose physical attraction over any other kind of connection. While I was not wild about Samantha, I am sure she is a decent person, and Adam has a right to choose whomever he wants, for whatever reason. But it appears from what we saw that he realized he was not ready for a serious commitment, marriage, Little League, etc. I certainly cannot imagine Samantha in the "soccer-mom" type of role. I would not be surprised if they have already broken up anyway, since it is unlikely that their relationship would thrive after she has seen that his family doesn't really like her.
My next thought was that they will probably give Rachel her own show now, if she is interested. I hope she declines and that this will be the end of the Average Joe franchise. What strikes me is that they edit the show to portray the "loser" (I use that term loosely) so favorably, that it feels like they are just trying to set up the viewers to want to see the "loser" in their own show. The only way this show can continue is if they keep recycling the past "average" contestants that the viewers have already formed an attachment to. What's next, "Average Joe: Brian Returns?" or "Average Jane: Rachel Returns"?
Any thoughts? Are you as disappointed as I am in having seen the third installment of this pathetic show? Do you feel like you were set up to be disappointed, just so that you would tune in next time to see the loser get his/her chance, yet again?
