    John,

    Really? I had heard that Survivor and Joe Millionaire awarded their money over a period of time. If that's not the case, and not the case in this show, than that really does make the choice simple... $630K or dull Rob? Take the cash, move to Florida to escape state income tax, enjoy fame that comes with being a nationally known hottie.
    For the fully aware, optimism is a revolutionary act.
    For everyone else, there's bitching and moaning.

    Unfortunately, Florida is tied for somewhere around 8th for sales tax, when you include state and municipal taxes--around 8.5%. Althought, having just moved from there not long ago, property prices are extremely reasonable.

    I'd take the million, but you couldn't PAY me a million to move back to Florida!!!

    Yep. Not only did Evan (from Joe Millionaire) get his half a mill, he also gets $15,000 per speaking engagement, and is booked solid for the next several months. Pretty good for a guy who can't string 3 comprehensible words together to form a sentence.

    SPEAKING ENGAGEMENT??!?!?!?!

    Are you quite sure there wasn't some elision in the typing, and you meant to say 'stripping engagement'? Who the hell would have that mook talk to humans? Why?

    WHY GOD WHY!!!?!?!?!?!?

    This is the scope of Evan's appearances

    [IMG]images/img/JoeMillionaire.jpg[/IMG]

    Evan Marriot, star of the television show Joe Millionaire, (left) poses for a picture with bride Jill Loren during an autograph session at a store in Edmonton Saturday June 7, 2003. Loren was getting married at a nearby hotel and stopped to meet Marriot.

    To keep the thread on track, he does resemble Rob.

    I never knew about these reality TV message boards before B-3, so forgive me if this is a redundant observation possibly posted by many before me. The instant I set eyes on Faux Joe, I was immediately struck by how much he resembled a porn star - er, ahem, or what I would imagine a porn star might look like. He just looked greasy and sleazy to me, and with his half-wit eyes, he looked half drug-crazed, too. He seemed like a very likable man, but I think he may have gotten trapped in the birth canal without enough oxygen for just a little bit too long!

    Anyway, I think his dance card will stop filling up soon enough here, if it hasn't already, and he'll be back to the construction sites digging holes and eatin' Big Macs, reminiscing about the good ol' days.
