    More like paranoid. It's better with Tim because he's there to have fun and not to question every single aspect of the show. A question that someone needs to ask Ingrid is why go on a reality show if you aren't willing to have fun? If she's like that in real life, then I'm afraid that she will remain single. Guys hate women who are that paranoid.

    I would be EXACTLY like her. There are too many things that are quirky and she's on the lookout now..nothing wrong with that. The way reality shows go anymore, you HAVE to be on your toes.

    I say good for her!!! Bummer though, cause they'll vote her out or something..then she won't get any mula.
    I like her also, she IS having fun....but in the same sense, she's not going to be a 'sucker' either.

    life that which is unnoticed has the most power.

    I think viewers are used to laughing at the contestants in reality shows, and especially so in this mock reality show, so they might be disappointed that this girl is too smart for them. She would be "paranoid" if she thought this show was fake when it's not, but since she's right on the money, she's just perceptive to me. Some people really can't help notice all these details. I'm not one of those people. I would probably be too busy laughing my head off and enjoying the free food , but I think Ingrid's great. She's still being a good sport and playing along. It's not like she's throwing hissy fits and threatening to quit. The best part is she is picking out flaws and making the directors step up their game. Even if she is kicked off in the next episode, the directors will have learnt something about looking into the little details in the future.

    I thought that Jana/Cammy did a terrible job covering up her slip last night and then the whole porn thing did seem really contrived. Once Ingrid's suspicions were aroused at the beginning by the women who said she got on the show because of her agent, it would be hard for her not to notice the slipups. Still, she is going along with it, having fun, and not yelling "fake!"

    Ingrid knew from the very start...she is the true phony....

    The most fake thing about this show has been Ingrid from the start.

    No one who is as attuned to pop culture as she appears to be could have missed knowledge of the first Joe Schmo.

    There are some shows that simply get a degree of buzz that rises above the din of Temptation Island 4 or Get Me Out Of Here, I'm a Celeb.....

    Joe Schmo was one of those shows.

    Ingrid is the type of person who has heard a riddle before, but when asked tells you she has not. That way when she provides the answer to it, she gets to feel so very smart, as if she just figured it out when asked.

    It's a phony cheap way of stroking one's ego and I feel that she is that very type of person.

    Ironically, I don't care, because the show has been a hoot....

    If Ingrid truely knew, and was smart .. she would've played dumb the whole time, and collected her check (Which Tim could be doing right now ... you would never know).


    There was a piece of me that thought Ingrid was an actor ... and would reveal that WE were the schmoes the whole time. But that wouldn't be a satisfying ending to a show you watched all the way through....

    I think Ingrid started getting her suspicions, vaguely remembered a show where everyone was an actor, and started wondering if she was on that show. However, since she didn't have it all worked out and she didn't know who was acting and what would happen at the end, she tested the waters to see what would happen. Finally, the producers let her in on it because she was close to figuring it out, not because she knew. If she knew, she would have just had a good time, not cared, and gotten her money in the end.

    Then again, I'm pretty sure that the producers asked each potential player a long series of questions. One or more of the questions would have been whether or not she had ever seen Joe Schmo (probably disguised as a checklist of reality shows she's seen). If she answered "yes" at any point, she'd have been kicked out.

    Besides, not everyone gets cable or watches "The network for men".

    Also, even though this show seems pretty outrageous, "Last Chance for Love" is supposed to be the American version of a British program. I've always been under the impression that shows from other countries are generally more outrageous than U.S. shows. It's possible that this could have played a factor in Ingrid's ability to try and believe in the premise.
