Melana rejected Average Joe Adam because “his feelings had surpassed” hers.

Melana rejected Average Joe Adam because “his feelings had surpassed” hers.
Is it possible that Average Joe star Melana Scantlin isn’t a shallow, superficial person after all? She says she chose Jason not because he is hot and has perfect hair, but because”Adam’s feelings had surpassed my feelings, and I couldn’t meet him at that level. Jason and I were on the same page.” Does that pragmatism make her realistic and grounded about finding love on a stupid reality TV show, or cold and unromantic? She also says Jason was edited poorly: “If they showed the audience Jason really does have a personality, Adam wouldn’t look like such a hero.”
+ also: Adam has received 3,000+ e.mail messages, too many calls for his machine to handle.
