Beauty really is skin-Deep

NBC’s latest reality show princess, Malena, a former NFL cheerleader and ex-Miss Missouri, chose her Prince Charming on “Average Joe” last week. To the surprise of many, she picked handsome underachiever Jason, over average-looking but successful Adam. She called her choice “the total package,” which made us Blink. Let’s review: Jason, 26, is a student/waiter with a limited vocabulary who still lives with his parents in Irvine, Calif., and shows no signs of having any skills by which to support himself. Adam, 27, is a self-made millionaire who made a killing on Wall Street, has his own New York apartment, owns a restaurant and has a great sense of humor to boot. Nice smile notwithstanding, Jason’s the total package? We would like to thank NBC for the week’s biggest laugh and for proving that there will never be a shortage of reality show contestants as long as there are beauty queens.
