Bebo, well done.
Though I find myself identifying with Schmo just a tad more than you, your summary of the show is spot on.
These not quite ready for daytime actors are painful to watch at times, and I have to say I would be totally pissed of to find out these guys had been lying to me. It's easy to be hard on Schmo for not picking up on it, but put yourself on a cheesy TV show set environment and it would take on a new perspective. I know I would take alot more at face value than I do in day-to-day life.
I also must agree with RIG on the merit of PV's body. Sweet sassy molassy she's got a smokin' bod. Anyway, I'm looking forward (way forward I'm guessing) to when this series gets exciting. That being the end, of course. (Holding for laughter, holding, and releasing...)
