Ralph Garman: What would you do if your entire world turned out to be fake? If an army of writers, producers and actors spent over a year creating TV's most elaborate experiment around YOU?

The Joe Schmoe Show
2 September 2003 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Just another bend down the spiral that is called 'reality tv', they take a guy who is arguably the dumbest guy in America, or the world for that matter. They throw him into a life amongst people who are acting. He apparently didn't recognize any of them from previous acting jobs. It didn't really help either when the actors blatantly screwed up by forgetting things about who they were supposed to portray.

At the beginning, they play 'Guess the underwear', an exchange of underwear which provided a disgusting look at their nearly naked bodies - except Kip who was completely naked but thanks to digital censorship we saw minimal amounts of his 'manhood'. At least the women were lookers.

If this show doesn't provide the final blow to 'reality TV', I have no idea what will.
