Yeah, I agree. I just started reading the message boards about the show on the MTV site, on the Real World Board, and I posted something about how much I liked Matt last night! Today, I searched and found this site, with a dedicated board for the Joe Schmo show. People have seemed to be pretty harsh when judging Matt. I really like him, and I think he is a really cool guy to give away such a nice prize to another "reality show" contestant. (He has no idea Dr. Pat is an actor) How many people would do that??
I posted because I hope Matt is reading and that he has a really good sense of humor so he will see himself through eyes like ours, NON-JUDGEMENTAL eyes. I love the show, and I also hope that Spike TV gives the money to Matt, cause that would be just WRONG not to!!
I don't feel that Matt has made an "ass" out of himself at all. We are only seeing ONE HOUR of the show!!! We don't get to see all that goes on that they don't show us on tape. How do we know what he could be reacting to? That is the beauty of reality TV.
Matt should be proud of himself. I will add also that I would eat any pizza he made, because I would know that the character of the person who made it is basically honest, kind, caring and generous. Go Matt. I am a cheerleader for you!!
P.S. The actors on the show are a riot too. Such great entertainment!!
