Ingrid, aka Jane Schmo, figures it out.
Ingrid Wiese, aka Jane Schmo on the Joe Schmo 2, knew the show was fake, but didn’t say anything. She said she became suspicious during the casting process: “I didn’t think the other people were actors, but I never took this seriously.” Cammy’s revelation about her pornography past gave it away, but she kept quiet. “I didn’t want them to kick me off the show. I wanted to see what would happen next,” she tells Scripps Howard. This week’s episode, which repeats Sunday at 8 p.m. ET, ended with a cliffhanger after on-screen titles revealed Ingrid no longer thought the show was fake (as TV Tome’s recap says, “During the montage sequence of Ingrid’s doubts, the following appeared: Thinks It’s All Real?, Kind of Thinks It’s All Real, Thinks 75% of It’s Real, Thinks Some of It’s Real, Thinks Less and Less of It’s Real, Thinks 50% of It’s Real, Thinks Less Than Half It’s Real, Thinks Some Small Portion of It’s Real, Thinks 25% of It’s Real, Thinks Very Little of It’s Real, We’re Screwed”). The show, by the way, has moved new episodes to Monday nights at 11:05 p.m. ET, following WWE Raw. The move is in response to disappointing ratings for both the debut and second episodes. Reality TV World reports that the second episode showed “a frustrating 30% decline from the premiere’s already low numbers.”
