Melissa Jo's Mom, thank you for taking the time to register and tell us more about your daughter. As with all of the women here who took part on the show, I'm sure they're wonderful people in real life.
Everyone decided to take part in this show for different reasons. MJ's reason is fairly obvious - that she wants to "make it" as an actress in L.A., and hopes this will be a springboard to achieve that.
During the actual airing of the show, we'll focus more on peoples' behavior. Since all we have to go on now are the photos, that's really all we have to judge them by, for better or worse.
And yes, we understand that they have to give us good television and edit people in the way that gives us the most whatever (laughs, disgust, etc.).
We're always nicer to contestants of these shows who we know actually read what we have to say about them. I would say that a mother and a good friend qualify :)
I hope you stick around and give us some insight throughout the show.
