"Are you kidding?" series host and comedian Kathy Griffin recently told the Boston Herald. "Guys would freak out having 15 overweight women with real bodies and stuff. They'd flip the heck out. Yeah, they can't handle it." Added Average Joe executive producer Stuart Krasnow in an interview with Zap2It, "Looks are fourth and fifth down the list (for women)." "Sense of humor and having a job and being intelligent comes way above that. The men on the other hand . . . you ask them what they're looking for in a woman, nine out of 10 times, looks is the first thing. Men are more `lookist,' if you will."
Apparently Average Jane is a concept whose time is yet to come... although given the lack of originality seen in a number of reality programs, we're sure America won't be waiting long.
