Former 'Average Joe' Alfred LaPonza sues NBC, alleges idea theft

UPI News Service, 07/27/2005 

A former "Average Joe" contestant has filed suit in Cleveland federal court claiming NBC is using his ideas in the current season of the reality series.

Contractor Alfred LaPonza, who appeared as "Fredo" in a previous season of "Average Joe," filed the suit along with two other Cleveland area men seeking $40 million from NBC, WKYC-TV, Cleveland, reported Wednesday.

The three claim they suggested the makeovers and other concepts being utilized this season as a group of "Average Joes" compete with hunks for the affections of a beautiful woman.

NBC told its Cleveland affiliate it had no comment on the suit.
