Joe Schmo Returns!!!!!

NEW YORK, Dec. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Spike has once again turned the tables on the reality show genre with "The Joe Schmo Show."  The one-hour, 10-episode series features one real guy who believes he is on a new, over-the-top reality show looking for America's next bounty hunter, but in reality is actually surrounded entirely by actors.  His cast-mates are a motley crew of reality show cliches including Lorenzo Lamas, playing himself, who must do their best under these unusual circumstances to follow a pre-determined outline.  "The Joe Schmo Show" premieres on Spike with two back-to-back episodes on Tuesday, January 8 from 10 PM – midnight, ET/PT.

One of television's biggest and riskiest experiments once again looks to discover how a reality contestant would react to encountering a show filled with every outlandish element reality television has showcased.  How far can producers push this 'reality,' and the ensuing ridiculous competitions? And of course, will the actors be convincing enough or will the unsuspecting "contestant" figure it all out? 

The true hero of the show undoubtedly is the "Joe," Chase Rogan, who demonstrates a keen sense of integrity and humanity, even under duress from the absurd predicaments he finds himself in.  

Chase Rogan is an all around good guy.  This 28-year-old Pennsylvania native and sports fanatic lives in Pittsburgh with his wife.  A certified professional agronomist, he owns and operates his own business, PureTurf Consulting, LLC.  Always up for a good time and adventure, Chase willingly submitted a casting video of himself to be on a new competition reality show.

In this installment, Chase believes he has been cast as one of several contestants in a new reality-competition series where the winner will become a bounty hunter.  He'll face an assortment of bounty hunting-related challenges, from learning how to defuse a bomb to interrogating a hostile witness, totally oblivious to the fact that all the crazy situations he is placed in are scripted.  Ralph Garman reprises his role from the first two "Joe Schmo" seasons as the show "host" along with a cast that showcases stereotypical reality show participants, ranging from a ditsy model to the self-absorbed, attention-grabbing jerk and from a classic overachiever to an ex-con whose found God.
