1. "RE: tv guide "
JOE DOUGH: Here's some "TV News" scoop from the current issue of TV Guide magazine (on sale now): Don't feel too bad for Matt Kennedy Gould, the ultimate practical-joke victim on Spike TV's faux reality romp The Joe Schmo Show. According to a show insider, the affable lug will walk away from the Oct. 28 finale with a six-figure check and other prizes just enough to keep the producers from going straight to hell.

i wonder if the 6 figure number will be closer to 999.999 then 100,000. i say the final number will be 500,000 plus what ever the prizes are. i wonder if a car is a prize.

A trip to keep him out of the public until the show finished its run on Spike was probably one of the prizes...

maybe but i don't think he gets anything till after the 28th. if he wants to go after the show he will find a way and a trip is not going to stop him. a 2 month trip that would cost alot they would be better off payng him cash.

5. "RE: tv guide "
True, it would cost a lot of money, but it depends on the prices of everything and where they would have sent him. As well as the prices of accomidations, it might not be some super fancy place, but he is probably somewhere other than at home. Maybe they have him locked up in some old ice fishing shack someplace, but its probably anywhere away from the people who would be watching the show to prevent anything from getting out. I don't think they would like it too much if someone ended up posting Matts reaction to the whole thing on the net..

7. "RE: tv guide "
It would have to be a nice one. Maybe its a condo somewhere that one of the producers has a time share for? Or just a condo somewhere, that can be rented for a few hundred a week.for some reason renting a condo is less expensive than a hotel overall. And you have all the things you could need.. So he's probably been somewhere for the last bit, and probably the day of the last eppisode he'll be shipped off back home.

Actually, he's still at his mom's house. A friend I know who went to college with him emailed to ask. According to her, he apparently only got 5 figures, not 6...

And yes, he is for real.

Oh, okay. I figured people would try and pry a lot of stuff out of him and give it away, so the producers would want to keep him out of sight. Guess I thought wrong, oh well.

Sounds good to me. This situation doesn't seem to differ much from the Candid Camera incident where that man was asked to lay down on the x-ray scanner and humiliated in the process. He sued and he won.

18. "RE: Ream them up the assetts Matt!"
Couldn't he sue now though? Why would he have to wait until after the show aired? Well, I guess the contract could have been worded that if he sues before the show is done airing any winnings will be...given to charity or something...or that he couldn't bring any suits until after the air date (or what? I don't know!)...but I mean, being an almost-lawyer, would he really have been that nonchalant about signing a contract that left him with no rights whatsoever?

19. "Reality check for Forum Members"

People... are you folks living in la la land?

If you are offered to appear on a television show, and you are an average joe, and there is a requirement to sign this big long restrictive contract, you have TWO choices:

1. You sign it and get to participate in a once in a lifetime experience.
OR
2. You don't sign and you DON'T get to appear on the show.

Which do you choose? There's no room to "negotiate" here. You're a nobody. If you don't want to sign the contract, then the producers will just go to their #2 choice. There are millions of Joes in the USA.

21. "RE: Reality check for Forum Members"
I disagree. I'm back to my old argument, it's not what Matt signed up for. I'm sure there's a lawyer somewhere who could turn Matt's contract into toilet paper, and then he could walk away with all three, participating in the show, winning the money and winning the law suit. I'd love to see it happen, but it's not likely.

20. "RE: Ream them up the assetts Matt!"
That makes sense.. maybe the contract said in a round about way that he could not sue the show for anything that happens within it? That would protect them from most things.. As for the money being given to charity, Matt seems to sweet and nice to get mad over that, he'd probably ask if he could pick which chairty it could go to

He'll need the money to put himself through rehab how he sees fit. He should keep anything and everything that comes his way.

Rabies had said something about the money going to chairty. But yeah, Matt would need all the money that comes his way probably.. Hopefully its not all spent seeing a psychiatrist for any lasting ill effects from being played a fool. Not saying he'll need one, but I know I would if I went through something like that, so would most of my friends.. Lots of people don't take being lied to on that level very well

24. "RE: Money to charity? I didnt say that"
First of all, don't attribute such an opinion to me. I'm the one that said he had no leverage when it came to signing the contract, so of course he can't sue, etc, etc...

As for psychological trauma, how much damage can a joke like this really cause considering the show was taped OVER ONLY 10 DAYS. Sheesh. You all seem to think the show is occurring in real-time and those people are together for 7 day stretches between shows. Not so! This is NOT Big Brother.

25. "RE: Money to charity? I didnt say that"
Sorry I hadn't followed the names across properly, yes even with the lines my eyes tend to get very weak when I am tired even with my glasses sometimes I have trouble seeing properly.

And we know VERY well that it is not real time, so please don't say that we seem to. Psychological damages are actually quite probable in this case. Yeah, its not that long a time but some people can form great friendships with people they spend a great deal of their day with. I mean look at his relationship with Earl! How many days did they know eachother and poor Matt was crying when Earl was booted out of the mansion! He considers some of these people his friends, but the people he knows are roles created by the team of producers, therefore who he knows as "friends" are not real. The actors may actually care for him and consider him a friend, but the personality Matt knows them to have isn't real. True he has gotten to know some of them, and had intimate discussions with some of the actors, but how much of what he learned about them is real, and part of the role they are playing and the storyline along with that role?

Plus Matt is so nice and trusting of them all. It probably will hurt him in some way that people he began to think of as friends, are not really who they said they were. Psychological trauma can occur in far less time than 10 days anyways, it all depends on the people involved and the situation. I think there will be some psychological effect on Matt, probably that he would be less trusting of people, and maybe more. Just because it is little time does not mean something could not happen psychologicaly.
