Average Joe 3 will star rejected Adam; Average Joe 2′s David is an actor.
NBC will follow the second season of its latest reality TV series with Average Joe 3, which will be subtitled Adam Returns. That’s because it stars Adam Mesh, the average guy Melana rejected in favor of the not-so-average guy at the end of the first season. The show is scheduled to debut March 15, the New York Post reports. NBC is accepting applications on its site; they’re due Jan. 28. The network has also posted an ad seeking women for the show on Showfax, which advertises casting calls to actors. The casting call is more specific, asking for “outgoing attractive single women of all ethnicities 21 to 35″ who “must be familiar with the outcome of the first” show. That posting is oddly appropriate because, as reader Jess points out again, yet another cast member has been outed as an actor. Average Joe 2: Hawaii‘s David Daskal has been in six films and five TV shows, plus a bunch of theatre productions. His profile mentions his stats (shoe size: 9.5), and identifies him as a member of SAG. His NBC profile says he’s a “mail sorter.”

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
