    Eight city slickers - from a software salesman, to a nurse and a children’s author -- say goodbye to modern conveniences for life on a real working ranch. Under the supervision of a tough ranch foreman and his two wranglers, the city slickers struggle to master cowboy life at this rugged cowboy "boot camp" where they must learn to ride, rope and wrangle before embarking on a grueling weeklong horse trek to the final cowboy challenge. New-found cowboy skills are put to the test when they must rope a steer, barrel race and ride a 1,200-pound live bull. The reward for their efforts - a cash prize, a custom-made saddle, and the coveted title of "All Around Cowboy."moreless

    Average Joe

    Follow
    NBC (ended 2005)
    The series involves an ex-beauty queen/NFL cheerleader who's lead to believe she'll be on a dating show where she'll get to pick from a group of handsome men, a la "The Bachelorette." The first twist comes when she arrives and discovers the guys are actually "Average Joes." In the first season, the bachlorette is Melana Scantlin. NBC Studios is behind the series which will contain original twists and turns for the current dating/reality genre. Specifics however where not revealed. In the show, each week the beauty learns about her suitors during group and individual dates, as she determines which one might be her soul mate. She faces tough decisions as she must eliminate some guys in order to focus on those she has the most chemistry with. As the host and confindant, Kathy Griffin will offer her take on the behaviors and personalities af the men and is on hand to introduce the many twists and turns the show takes. The Peacock has committed to six episodes of the reality series from Executive Producers Stuart Krasnow ("America's Most Talented Kid") and Andrew Glassman (CNBC). Kathy Griffin ("The Mole") will host the project which, like FOX's "Mr. Personality" will test how important looks are in the dating process. Average Joe 2: Hawaii Hot on the heels of this Fall's hit Average Joe, NBC premieres the second installment of the series, Average Joe: Hawaii, on Monday, January 5 (10-11 p.m. ET). This new series was taped before the first series ever aired, thus protecting the twist. "As soon as we saw the first tapes of the original ‘Average Joe,' we knew there was rich potential for a second helping of this twisted take on the dating show. The fact that we taped both series before either hit the air allows for the surprise twists to hit the new participants with the same impact they had on the original show," said Zucker. In this new series, the crown of "Average Joe's" former beauty queen and NFL cheerleader Melana Scantlin is passed on to another former Miss USA contestant and model - Larissa Meek, who is swept away to a secluded island paradise with the promise of romance to be found among a group of 18 Prince Charmings. With no way of knowing the secret twist to "Average Joe" in advance, our new beauty must decide how to proceed when she meets the unexpected group of guys with big personalities, but admittedly average looks, ranging from a 5-foot-3 engineer to 340 pound sewage contractor. While finding themselves on what one dismayed ‘Average Joe' describes as "nerd island," the guys happily greet their beauty unaware that in a few short weeks a group of eight traditional dating-show-studs will join the competition to vie for her affection. As the series proceeds, new takes on the twists of "Average Joe" are in store for the audience along with brand new dramatic surprises; and tensions between the two groups of men reach new levels in several emotionally charged ‘joe' vs. ‘jock' showdowns. Average Joe 3: Adam Returns NBC will be premiering the third season of the series, Average Joe: Adam Returns, on Monday, March 15 (10:00 PM). The new season will be having new twists, and the biggest one would probably be Adam Mesh's return to the show. After Melana Scantlin's choice to take Jason as a winner on Average Joe's first season finale, instead of Adam, Adam's fans sent a big number of e-mails for bringing Adam back. Finally, after second season finished its airing, Adam Mesh will return to the show as a main bachelor in Average Joe 3: Adam Returns. Now Adam Mesh has the power to choose over some girls... Average Joe 4: The Joes Strike Back The newest and boldest installment of NBC's popular relationship series Average Joe about average-looking guys with big hearts and great personalities hoping to win the love of a beautiful woman returns with more twists, turns and conflicts than ever before. This time, stunning 26-year-old red-headed beauty Anna is the alluring bachelorette. Born in Poland and raised in Las Vegas, Anna has a degree in business administration and is now a model and entrepreneur. Once again, the unsuspecting model thought she was on a traditional dating show only to be surprised by a swarm of average Joes, including a tool salesman, a pest control guy and a computer-science student pursuing his Ph.D. In the six-episode series, the 18 enthusiastic average Joes hope to woo and win her over with their charm and personalities. But first, they'll have to navigate through an all new series of dramatic twists and turns, outrageous surprises ? and their toughest competition yet ? seven strikingly handsome jocks who are cocky and confident that Anna will only have eyes for them. Also included are a romantic getaway to exotic Tahiti, surprise visitors for both the Joes and Anna, and the return of three of the most popular former Average Joes in the premiere.
