"AVERAGE JOE BIOS AND HEAD SHOTS"

ADAM

Occupation: Partner in Trading Company

What type of women are you usually attracted to?
There is not a distinct look but rather distinct personality traits that I find myself attracted to. The women that I like to date are: funny, outgoing, honest, stylish, flirtatious, confident and playful! I like women that are energetic and ambitious as well. After this show, I also like women that don't hold a couple of eating binges and spontaneous poetry on a reality show against a guy!
What would you say are your best and worst qualities?
I think my best and worst qualities are often one and the same. I am spontaneous and speak without thinking very often. If what I am thinking is intelligent, humorous, or a positive reflection on me then it is one of my best qualities. If what I'm saying lacks intelligence, is not funny or leads to a negative reflection of me then it can be one of my worst qualities. Staying with the negatives: I am impatient and impulsive. To end on a positive note: I am honest, energetic, loyal, love laughing, love winning and I am impulsive.
Name something that people would be surprised to know about you?
I have written one hundred pages of a book that I began writing a year ago. It is a romantic comedy based mostly on my life.

Petite blondes, redheads, brunettes, and also Spanish, Latina and Asian women. But they all must have one thing in common: a good sense of humor and the ability to LAUGH at themselves.

I am a good person and loyal friend. My worst quality is I pout when I don't get what I want.

BRAD
Age: 26
Hometown: West Bloomfield, MI
Occupation: Television Drama Development

What type of women are you usually attracted to?
I don't think I have a type, my friends would say differently. My past girlfriends have been on the taller side, blonde, and slim. But, I think my type is the "girl next door," a natural beauty. Doesn't wear a lot of makeup and takes about 60 seconds to get ready in the morning! I love sundresses and pony tails. And I need a cuddler...

What would you say are your best and worst qualities?
Best quality - humor. Worst quality - humor. Ok, seriously, I love to put smiles on everyone's faces. I am an extremely optimistic and trusting person. I also love to help whenever needed in whatever situation. If you need someone, I'm your man!

My worst quality is I tend to talk a lot, I mean a lot. I need someone that can shut me up!

Name something that people would be surprised to know about you.
Surprised, well, after people get to know me, they are never surprised at the different things I do. But, I don't think people would ever know my love of dance. Yes, tap dancing... Just call me Gregory Hines, well, call me Brad that likes to tap. I think the other thing people would be surprised about is my love of the University of Michigan. Ok, I lied. Just look at my car. Ok, one more, surfing. Who would think that a l'il old boy from the Midwest loves to surf!

JOE
Age: 37
Hometown: Dallas, TX
Occupation: Investment banker

What type of women are you usually attracted to?
I am attracted to women with range. What I mean by range is being able to go to a five star restaurant and fit in as well as go and grab a burger and a beer in a baseball hat. I like women whom I can have an intellectual conversation with and who are self-confident. I am a Leo and want someone who can handle the attention a Leo brings.

What would you say are your best and worst qualities?
My best qualities are that I am funny, intelligent and very loyal and loving. I will go to the ends of the earth for someone I love.

My worst quality is that I am impatient. I know what I want and I don't like to wait to get it. Once I make my decision, I go after it. That is in life and love

Name something that people would be surprised to know about you.
Most people are shocked to know that I like heavy metal music.

JERRY
Age: 28
Hometown: New York City, NY
Occupation: Ad Executive

What type of women are you usually attracted to?
I'm attracted to all types of women. What attracts me most is when a girl is intelligent, funny, classy, spontaneous, understanding, and has great character...and there has to be chemistry for it to work.

What would you say are your best and worst qualities?
My best qualities are:
I've been told that I'm empathetic, genuine, adventurous, and possess a good sense of humor.

My worst qualities are:
I'm gullible (obviously...see Average Joe for details), and not a good speler.

Name some things that people would be surprised to know about you?
My "official" first name is Gennaro. I've sailed around the world already, and I don't have the greatest relationship with the Mexican Federales.

WALLY
Age: 27
Hometown: Brooklyn, NY
Occupation: Real Estate

What type of women are you usually attracted to?
I'm pretty much attracted to women that smile and laugh a lot. I'm a sucker for a good sense of humor. I like a girl that can hold her own with the guys. I also like women that are vertically challenged (I like the short ones).

What would you say are your best and worst qualities?
I guess my best qualities are that I'm caring, trustworthy, and giving. I'm a mean cook, and by "mean" I don't mean mean-spirited. Know what I mean? I'm also very funny, and not to mention humble.

My worst quality is that I put my foot in my mouth all too often. Just watch the show and you'll probably find several examples that my friends will never let me live down.

Name something that people would be surprised to know about you.
One thing most people may be surprised to know is that I attended an all male, preparatory seminary high school. That's right, I was in a school for potential priests with 200 dudes. Don't worry, I found the two activities that included women. I was in the drama club, and on the speech and debate team. I know what you're thinking, but I got to hang with girls from the all-girl Catholic schools on a daily basis.

JOHN
Age: 26
Hometown: Lacrosse, WI
Occupation: Director's Assistant

What type of women are you usually attracted to?
Personality-wise, I really love a woman who has experiences to share. A good sense of humor and love of adventure certainly add to the mix as well. As for physical features, never knock the importance of good posture. I think it says more about who a person truly is than nearly any other visible aspect.

What would you say are your best and worst qualities?
After careful deliberation and consultation, I have decided that the most direct and yet subtle answer to this question would be that I, myself, maintain a quality sense of humor. I suppose the aforementioned answer also simultaneously proves that my worst quality is my tendency to overanalyze EVERYTHING.

Name something that people would be surprised to know about you.
I dyed my hair blue and rocked Japan from Tokyo to Osaka with my band "The Baum Squad".

MARC
Age: 32
Hometown: Los Angeles, CA
Occupation: Software Manager

What type of women are you usually attracted to?
Intelligence is probably the most important quality I look for in a woman. I like my relationships to be 50/50, so I'm really attracted to women who are independent and can handle themselves. I like a girl with a little mischievous glint in her eye when we're out and about, because I always love to see what adventures we can get ourselves into.

As far as looks are concerned, I like a girl with her own sense of style and isn't afraid to show it. I have a thing for girls with short hair and nerd-girl glasses too (maybe that's the intelligence thing?). I basically like the girl who's a bit nerdy at the start of the movie, but takes her glasses off at the end and suddenly looks stunning. I'm thinking Parker Posey with a graduate degree...

What would you say are your best and worst qualities?
My best and worst quality is the same: my big mouth. I try to be 100% honest 100% of the time, and this wins me many friends - and enemies. People who aren't secure in themselves have a hard time with me because of this. If I don't like you, you'll know it. But if I do like you, you'll know I'm honest about it and not just playing with you. What good is a compliment from someone who compliments everyone?

Name something that people would be surprised to know about you.
I've had a history of dating girls who are quite beautiful and intelligent. Quite frankly, I'm unsure how I've managed to pull this off but I have. My friends tease me about it, actually, because I tend to show up with some pretty incredible women.

ZACH
Age: 28
Hometown: New York City, NY
Occupation: Sales

What type of women are you usually attracted to?
I am usually attracted to family oriented women. It is important to me for my partner to have strong family values. I also like petite women that are athletic. I like independent, reliable, energetic, outgoing women that have a good sense of humor and know how to have a good time.

What would you say are your best and worst qualities?
Two of my best qualities are my sense of humor and my reliability. My ability to get along with people that I want to get a long with is fantastic.... My worst quality is I don't always trust people. It takes time for a bond of trust to occur. I also tend not to get to know people that I can't picture myself getting along with.

Name something that people would be surprised to know about you.
People might be shocked to hear that I speak to my mother and father every day, and I always make sure to tell them how much I love them.

ERIC
Age: 32
Hometown: Mamaroneck, NY
Occupation: Police Officer

What type of woman are you usually attracted to?
I am usually attracted to slim or in-shape women, light eyes, light hair, medium to tall in height, medium to busty, that take care of themselves, i.e. go to the gym and don't smoke. It depends on the person but there has to be a click, even if it's a small one, something that separates them from others. Physical characteristics only go so far and have to backed up by intelligence. Someone not too quiet and not too loud, college background and no kids (1 possibly). If they can cook, even better.

What are your best and worst qualities?
My best qualities are that I am health conscious, outgoing, open minded, spontaneous, a hopeless romantic, caring, intelligent, have beautiful eyes, a nice butt and a great personality. I will go out of my way for those I love and care for.

My worst qualities are that I am stubborn, sometimes cranky, persistent, too honest sometimes, very picky in the dating arena and suffer from A.D.D. on occasion (I think by choice), you have to keep my attention.

Name something people would be surprised to know about you.
Something that people would be surprised about me is that even after 5 plus years of being broken up with my ex, I still think about her every day. Maybe it was because it was my first serious relationship. I date a lot, but find it hard to find a woman who has the overall qualities I'm looking for, with of course that special click I still believe exists. It would be nice if that click didn't fade in time. I have given up looking and am just keeping my eyes open for now, you never know.

Also that I am pursuing an Acting career and would love to one day pursue it full time.

DENNIS
Age: 34
Hometown: Milford, PA
Occupation: Chiropractor

What type of women are you usually attracted to?
Medium height, dark hair, dark eyes. Athletic build. Outgoing personality - a lot of fun, loves to laugh.

What would you say are your best and worst qualities?
My best qualities are that I'm hard working, I love to have fun and I'm well educated. I just love to have a good time - that's what it's all about. My worst qualities are that I can get very jealous and am very picky.

Name something that people would be surprised to know about you.
I ran for Mayor of Milford (my hometown) in 2000. Threw my hat in, got a lot of votes. However, I live in a small town, so not a huge voter turnout.

CRAIG
Age: 26
Hometown: La Habra, CA
Occupation: Runs a cigar lounge

What type of women are you usually attracted to?
A girl who bartends and likes the L.A. Kings.

What would you say are your best and worst qualities?
I party l like a rock star, that's my best quality. And my worst quality is that I party like a rock star.

Name something that people would be surprised to know about you.
I once used a male enhancement product for three months and saw no results.

MELANA
Hometown: Gladstone, MO
Occupation: Kansas City Chief's Entertainment Announcer

What type of guy are you usually attracted to?
I am usually attracted to the guy who walks in and "lights up the room", not by his looks, but by his charm and the way he treats others.with a smile. I have been known to become weak for the singer/songwriter/guitar player as well.

What would you say are your best and worst qualities?
Because I am a creative person, I sometimes lose interest quickly. I am always thinking and multi-tasking and people may think that I am not paying attention, but I really am. My attitude toward life serves as my greatest tool and I would consider it my greatest quality.

Name something that people would be surprised to know about you.
People would be surprised to know that I write incessantly and have since the 5th grade. My favorite piece:
"Writing frees the mind of stirring emotion and settles on paper where thoughts can rest." It is funny how my writing will sometimes plant itself on paper before I can even comprehend the content of what my hand is scribbling!

KATHY GRIFFIN - HOST

How can you be a fan of reality television and not be a fan of Kathy Griffin? She's been a champion of reality TV since the start. In fact, she had an entire show devoted to it! "Kathy's So-Called Reality," which aired on MTV, featured lively round-robin discussions on everything from Temptation Island's whiny couples to Survivor's obnoxious teammates. Last year, Kathy took the obsession one step further by becoming a contestant on Celebrity Mole - the celebrity version of the popular betrayal/strategy game, The Mole. Not only did Kathy hold her own against the likes of Corbin Bernsen and Stephen Baldwin, but savvy Miss Kathy won the game!

Now, as host of NBC's newest reality show Average Joe, Kathy is in her element. In her exclusive interview with NBC.com, Kathy dishes the dish.

Why did you want to host Average Joe?
I loved the premise. In my humble opinion, it's not about Melana, it's about the guys and the guys are incredible. I thought all of them were really good looking, so there ya go. It's so nice to see "real" people on television. I can watch this show and it reminds me of my own parties! "Hey, those are my friends!"

How did the guys react to Melana?
The guys all had different reactions . Some were in love within 20 seconds, others seemed more into each other. Talking about Star Trek, going in the hot tub. Nerd guys aren't so into chicks, they're into comics and fantasy football.

What was your impression of the guys?
Unlike Bachelorette, these guys were very emotional. They cried. They fought. Lots of nerd arguments. They really wore their hearts on their sleeves. On the Bachelorette, worked out together. They talked about their clothes, their workout plan. On this show, they give each other noogies and talk about Star Trek. I love them. I love these guys.

The one thing I said when I signed for this was that there was one thing I would not do. I won't ever comment on their looks or call them ugly. I wouldn't participate in anything that would say that they are "less than" in any way.

How were the guys with each other?
Girls might be a little catty, but these guys were overtly vicious the way they teased each other.

You're a noted fan of reality TV, and a former contestant! What do you think about today's "state of reality"?
All the contestants these days are on just to be on TV. It truly is great when they're on to really find somebody. That's what I love. I love that Trista and Ryan are engaged. You really can learn some stuff. You can watch these dating shows.and you're not going to learn what to do.but you can learn what not to do.

I really do get bored with just seeing pretty people on reality shows all the time. That's one of the things I've always liked about Survivor. Real people with real bodies on primetime television. That's what I really like about Average Joe. I mean, I don't know, I feel like I'm the only person who feels this way or television would change.

Were you able to offer Melana advice when it came time for eliminations?
Unfortunately, I really don't get to say what I feel at all. At the elimination ceremonies I would talk to the guys, talk to Melana and that's it.

What was the funniest moment in the house?
Funniest moment in the house? Any time there was "noogy" giving. One time the guys got hammered and one of them was running around the pool just yelling "Melana's amazing," that was pretty funny. Plus, these guys don't have the same internal censors as gorgeous guys. There will be moments where you'll be like "oh, no don't say that or don't do that." They are more uninhibited.

For being "average," the guys seem pretty confident.
Average guys will always pursue hot chicks. It's a trophy issue and there's a show-off aspect to it. They will probably inspire , but these guys are already inspired.

What's your favorite reality show?
Sometimes when I watch reality shows, I actually want to become friends with . I want people fighting and sleeping together and having arguments and alliances. So far, you can't top the first season of Survivor. Best TV I've ever seen.

Kathy Griffin can be seen every Wednesday at The Laugh Factory in Hollywood. She is currently developing a show about being a "D" list celebrity.
