I caught the first Joe Schmoe in reruns, and couldn't believe how much I liked it. Was so glad to see they're doing it again.
I absolutely love the "behind-the-scenes" glimpses of the actors on there way to meet the Schmoes, as well as all of the dish they're telling us as we go along. Like "Gerald" saying he was thiiisssss close to saying "You're on the Joe Schmoe Show" to Ingrid and Tim - could totally feel for him.
So far I like them all, and am curious to see more from "The Weeper" and "The Bitch" - especially when I read somewhere that they modeled the latter after Omarosa. So far "The Stalker" is my favorite - from his completely ignoring everyone at the very beginning, to the frog present, to the hypnotism, he had me hooting out loud the whole time.
Is it just me, or does "Austin" just seem really, really nervous all the time? Maybe I'm just reading him wrong.
I think someone said that Tim was there on his own "Spring Break" and that's a perfect descripion. That Ingrid is a smart one, though - I wonder if that "agent" line the extra fed her (and I can foresee someone never getting called for an audition with that production company ever again - yowza!) had her on the look out for weirdness, and that's why the speeches seemed more rehearsed to her.
In all, looks to be a great season. Can't wait to see what happens next week!
