    Did the ladies REALLY not know about Joe?

    so many people have jumped onto this forum and claimed that the ladies didn't know about Joe, or any man for that matter, but were just offered a "free" holiday in france. well, according to Fox Reality Programming Chief, Mike Darnell, this was not the case.

    Read a portion of the article below:

    “IN A WAY, we’re ripping the mask off the people (who sign up for shows like ’The Bachelor’),” Fox reality programming chief Mike Darnell said. “We find out whether they’re really doing this for love.”

    “Joe” features 20 single women who fly to France in order to win the affection of a hand-some American they believe to be worth $50 million. The twist: The as-yet unidentified man is actually a construction worker with an annual income of $19,000.

    “It’s the gold diggers and the ditch digger,” one Fox insider said.

    Viewers will know from the start that the faux Joe is actually a blue-collar guy with no coin to his name. They’ll also watch as he undergoes a Pygmalion-like transformation from humble construction worker into someone who might pass for a multimillionaire.

    The 20 women who participated in the show, however, are told Joe recently inherited $50 million and is looking for someone with whom he can share his wealth. Joe will maintain this ruse, though he’ll be honest with the women about every other aspect of his life, from education to past romances.

    MAJOR DETAIL

    “All of his backstory is true, except for the money part,” Darnell said.

    As in “Bachelor,” Joe will narrow down his potential mates each week, taking them on horseback rides through the French countryside near what the women believe is his chateau, or wining and dining them at the Eiffel Tower.

    Rather than hand his rejects roses, Joe will give losing women jewelry of escalating value. The payoff comes in the finale episode, when the faux millionaire chooses the one woman with whom he wants to have a relationship. If the woman agrees to continue the relationship — Fox isn’t saying if a marriage proposal is involved — Joe is forced to come clean.

    Any girl that jumps at the chance for a "free vacation in France" with no strings attached has got their head in the sand. There is still a white slavery ring that operates in Europe and the mid-east to this day. Take a free vacation and end up in some harem somewhere.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!" -- Steve Parker

    Good find on the casting release, Sher. I saw it a couple of times, but didn't think to save it, and then when I really wanted it, RSL had removed it from their web site.

    Thanks Sher. That is absolutely the last we we need to read. These women knew something was up PERIOD!

    No more needing to listen to "I thought it was just a free trip"

    The ONLY thing these women did NOT know was that joe was not rich. That's all, that's it.

    Thank you for finding this!
