Ingrid learns the truth and becomes an actress; new Jane Schmo takes her place.

Ingrid learns the truth and becomes an actress; new Jane Schmo takes her place.
Having realized what was going on, Ingrid Wiese was told the truth about the true nature of Joe Schmo 2. Instead of kicking her off the series, though, producers decided to let her stay on as a quasi-actress. She says she stuck around because “there was also a part of me that was curious and wanted to see what was going to happen.” A new, completely ignorant cast member, Amanda, was brought in to take her place as Jane Schmo. As the show’s producer Rhett Reese tells Zap2it.com, “Amanda was told this is a reality show and she was a twist, that simple.”
+ also: because she’s a recovering alcoholic, Ingrid says “she has an innate sense of when someone is lying.”
+ and: chat with Ingrid today at 9 p.m. ET.
