No crush but shameless anyway ~ Joe Millionnaire

post #1 of 58
Thread Starter 
So, I've watched this show twice because it's on after my fave Boston Public (or Boston Pubic as dh likes to call it).

Isn't it so goshawful that it makes you laugh out loud??? It does with me, anyway. I totally enjoy watching this total jerk of a guy, who's not even goodlooking, get his just dessert from this batch of brainless bimbos who are so wonderfully catty and so incredibly stupid.

The other day they went to Paris. I looked forward to the inane conversations in front of some of the world's best artwork, but all they did was play rich in the Mouling Rouge ("OOOHHHH!!!! WOOOOWWWWW!!!!") and dance the tango ("When I saw her in that dress, well, she sure had a nice body") with a teacher they couldn't understand.

Anybody else enjoy this show? Just because it's so nice to see how the other half lives? To remind you why not everybody is AP?

I will shamelessly admit I have watched this show. Something about trash tv... compels me to watch it. That and we don't have cable or anything Anyways, I wonder what will happen when he reveals he is just a regular shmoe. This guy is SUCH a MOOK !

Yes, me too, it's unbelieveable... only FOX would air this...

I think too, some of it's appeal is watching the pretty girls sound all callous and ignorant when they talk about how rich he is. I guess you'd have to really love a guy to stay with him when you discover he's been totally lying to you throughout your courtship, KWIM ? Even if money wasn't important, that's quite a level of deception.

I think they could have gotten a better guy... no wait... a better guy would never pull this !

From the folks who brought us 'Who Wants to Marry a Millionaire'

I caught some of it the other night. The show is soooo Fox. : But, admittedly, I had a hard time turning it off once I caught the premise.

"Joe" isn't bad looking, but hasn't much in the brains department. But the women...so, so sad.

You know, in true Fox fashion there will be some kind of twist in the end. Maybe he actually did inherit some money, or just won the lottery, or something...

I saw last week's episode where he took the girls to pick grapes and to load up the train with coal. Even my dh watched with me(never watched anything besides football), and we were cracking up.
I loved seeing those women all bust their chops doing activities like that, just to get on that guy's good side. How about the "Princess" in her high heels on that horse! Hilarious!!

OMG! This show is reee-dic-u-lous! But I watched two episodes all the same, and will probably continue to watch. I just can't wait to see the shallow bi#ches get shot down and be totally pissed when they find out! HAH! Nobody is going home as a couple on this show. Sad, in many ways, yet strangely entertaining.... :

Did you watch the last episode?

I actually like that Zorah girl. She reminds me of a Harlequin novel heroine (I translate those, don't ever suspect me of enjoying it LOL), but I think she deserves better than this Evan guy.

I hate hate hate the girl with the curly hair, the b!tchy one. The one who doesn't know what garlic looks like. So I hope she wins But I bet it's going to be the stockbroker, the one he went winetasting with.

The Evan guy is soooo awful. He talks about htem as if they're cows ~ well, so do I , but I'm not dating them or kissing them.

LOL,

Joe Millionaire is my shameful indulgence!!

I can't stand that curlyhead, either or the remaining blonde (both smokers, ug)

Curleyhead *seemed* nice in the beginning but they all got so cattey.

I like Zorah as well (and mojo was #2 I don't know why he didn't keep her she had a lot of nice spirit)

Joe Millionaire is no catch (with or without 50 million bucks)

Zorah's sweet and I hope she doesn't make it 'till the end because *he* doesn't deserve *her*.

I'd like to cee the curleyhedded princess leia chick live like a commoner LOL.

Wicked good time. Creates the odd dicotomy of rooting against the ones you like! Personally "MoJo" (who gives themselves such a dumb nickname? and then uses it in the third person? and as a noun at the same time? UGH!) bugged the life out of me... but she was always good for a laugh. (Nice hat... NOT!) So I was perversly sad to see her go. She is such a bald faced gold digger that I would have loved to see her 'win' the booby prize.

I like Zora so far so I was really hoping he would send her packing. Oh well. I expect the conniving twins will turn their knives on each other before long, so that should be fun!

I'm watching too!! It's such a guilty pleasure.

I actually think Evan is kinda cute. (But I didn't say that...shhh..)

Yea the catty girls make the show more interesting. This past episode it was all about how Mojo is not of the "same element" as them. Basically, she's not as good as them. Then they went on to talk about how they were going to have to break Evan of his bad habits-- ya know, drinking beer. : They say this as they each light up a cigarette.

I really like Zora too! She's so down to earth and she's not catty or bitchy. I kinda wonder where they found her cuz she doesn't really fit the mold the other girls fit in. Even Mojo, who wasn't as catty and bitchy as Melissa and Sarah, was totally into wiling Evan. But not Zora...it's interesting.

Anyways, I can't wait to see how it turns out. I want him to pick Zora just so she can beat out those bitchy girls but then again I want one of them to win just so he can tell them HA! I don't have 50 million dollars!

I stuck the tv into the extra bedroom, but I do watch it around 9 still - my hour plus marathon nursing session for dd to go to sleep

Ha! so that's where she learned to say things like, "hmpf... smack... splat...." :LOL gotta love the soundtrack.

and the best joke on tv in a year: (bitchy curlz) "I love to help children in the third world. I'm kinda mercenary you know"

:LOL :LOL :LOL

O.K., I will confess. I did watch it! Like Zora, can't stand the curley haired one. Think he is a complete idiot. Whoever wins, looses................
post #16 of 58
I'm addicted to this show....I agreewith what everyone has said!
I really like Zora too, but would love to see one of the others win so he can say..."yeah I'm a construction worker"

Dh rolls his eyes at me...I made him watch this instead of Third Watch

Oh yeah! The mercenary comment! Some of this stuff almost couldn't be funnier if they tried. But which is funnier... that she said it or that he just kept up the 'benign smile and nod' routine because he didn't know what it meant either!

Oh, and the pooooo-eeeemmm!
"Butterflies of passion and of fun..."
WTF?
And she just keeps reading it and reading.... he started to make out with her to shut her up and then she started up again! Cuz Mojo is still in Jr High!

heeheee....

though I had the impression that Mojo was the only one who actually liked him. He's just such an idiot ~ he got so paranoid about the million dollar check thing. Instead of realizing that this was a girl with a plan, and that HE could live off her in a few years, his little rabbit brain immediately thought that she must be after his money. Whatever.

This show is sooooo Fox. I think it's designed in a very misogynistic way ~ the female golddiggers and the nice modest guy. Only us mdc b!tches realize that he's the real schmuck, and the girls just want to be discovered.

So, that Zora... we all think she's nice and all that, but she applied for the show of course. Do you all believe that she just very smartly "designed" this withdrawn, "mysterious" tv persona, or maybe even the producers did that, so there would be an interesting mix of women? With, left as of now, the mean one, the mysterious one, and the "openminded" one?

See, I think they're in it neither for the money or the guy. Only to be on tv.

It's hard to know exactly what to think of these broads without knowing what kind of add they responded to... they may have shown up for a generic 'tv dating show' and then been told about the money... or maybe the ads said "want to marry a rich guy?" I have no idea. Anyone?

Oh, and we MDC B's are by no means the only ones in on the joke. I think most people watching are loving the sheer train wreck aspect of it and the fact that since basically everyone is guilty you don't have to feel bad chuckling over their misfortune.
Of course there is a rumor circulating that the joke is on us and he really IS rich... hmm...
post #20 of 58
So my latest theory is that at the end he'll still be broke, but the girl who wins will get some cash for making it and he'll get.... dumped. (or if they really fell in love...yeah right!)

Last night confirmed the gold diggers for me. I think Zora is the only one that might not care so much. But smoochy-smoochy-feeling-her-up-under-the-blanket-girl won't hang around for a second! I want her to win! (I'm so sadistic about this)

They really tried to make you feel bad for Dumbo last night too. boo-hoo
