Note to self, regarding the final episode of Average Joe: blah.

Don’t get me wrong. Malena was free to choose whomever she wished, and I’m sure she made the right decision for herself. But the whole premise of the show was to introduce an attractive, did-all-the-right-things lady to a bunch of “second-tier” men. As NBC repeated over and over in their ads, “you might be surprised….” Nope. The girl chose the most attractive guy in the end — a guy, incidentally, who was NOT part of the original group, but was introduced later with a bunch of other so-called “hotties.” And that’s all she wrote.

Kim wanted it to turn out this way. Malena chose the more confident guy she said, and he was just overall a better match. “Besides,” she said, “he doesn’t look as awkward. Would you want to stare at Adam’s goofy face every day?” That may all be true, but it just proves the point all over again: The Average Joe doesn’t get the pretty girl in the end. Only the Pretty Boy does. It didn’t even help that Adam was rich this time. Bah. Shame on NBC for stringing us along this whole time.

Sadly, despite my bitterness, I will probably tune in for the second installment. If the preview is any indication, the show should be even funnier than the first.
