Topic: RE: About Average Joe episode tonight
Here is a summary of what happened from NBC site:
The guys got a visit from Melana's friend Heather and her "cousin" Danielle. The cousin, however, was actually Melana in a Hollywood special effects' fatsuit. Think "Fat Monica" on Friends. In addition to gaining 100 pounds, she also got new teeth, different colored eyes and darker hair. It was like extreme makeover in reverse! Before meeting the guys, Melana cruised around Palm Springs' main street in her new look. She was shocked by the maltreatment she received. One group of guys even called her a "hog"! So rude! Once back at the mansion, an elaborate sting involving a Melana body double rolled out so that the guys thought that Melana left the house. One by one the guys greeted Heather and Danielle, who threw out a bunch of hard-hitting questions. Adam seemed calm, cool and collected. Michael had no problem making eye contact with both women. Jason, however, didn't even look at Danielle. Zach also had some eye contact issues, plus Melana almost cracked up laughing and had to shield her face with her notepad! After the interviews, the guys met up with Melana by the pool. She tried to get the guys to open up about Danielle and Heather, but they were very polite. Then she got them to open up about their feelings. The guys all had positive things to say, but Adam (once again) knocked it out of the park and brought tears to Melana's eyes. Once Melana excused herself, the guys retired to the poolroom. Little did they know, that Melana would see and hear them via hidden cameras.
The next morning, Melana watched the tapes to see what the guys really thought about her "cousin," Danielle. Adam kicked things off with joking around about having to kiss Danielle to get to the next round. A lot of Zach's responses were bleeped out! Later, he referred to her as the DUFF. The Designated Ugly Fat Friend. Ouch! He told the others that you've got to be in with the Duff, to be in with the girl. Truer words were never spoken. When it came time to eliminate two of the guys, it was Danielle who greeted Adam, Zach, Jason and Michael in the living room. The guys were non-responsive until she told them that she heard everything that they said about her. Zach covered his face with his hands, Adam stifled a nervous cough. Then, Melana peeled off the makeup to reveal herself! The guys were stunned, but smiling…except for Zach. She announced that the two guys going home were: Michael and wait, not so fast. She asked to speak with Zach before she announced her decision. She told him that she was real with him and hoped that he had changed for the better through the experience. She gave him a cheek kiss and said goodbye! Zach had some choice words for the camera before leaving.
