Maybe she is some sort of "mole" who they planted to pretend that she is "secretly" telling the girls that Joe is worth millions. This way, we and the insiders on the show can see how the girls change in their approach to Joe and the show in general - once they feel they have what they think is insider information and therefore a new and hidden agenda.Originally Posted by 13 times
When you have a "host" or somebody tell the girls about his $$$ in an open forum, they know - that we know - that they know - he is worth millions. This gives them all the opportunity to cleverly talk about how Joe's money "doesnt matter" that they really "like him for him" and other such assorted phony baloney. retch, retch, retch.
If they instead think that they have some sort of "inside scoop" and think that no one else knows that they know, their actions and attitudes may take a much cattier and devious direction.
That would be a great twist to a show that already bases itself on twists and turns and deceit of the contestents.
Re: the host note, I agree that Alex was worthless. But she did have some great boots!
