* CheekCopy: Kip only wanted pictures of positivity in his photo album, not pictures of negativity. So, naturally, Hutch, resident asshole, absconded with it filled it with photos of his buttocks.

* JawDrop: In ''Joe Schmo 2'' Eleanor gets out her "coupon book of love" at the suggestion of Austin. She finds that one of the coupons, for a ten-minute foot massage, is missing. Cammy says that she had already used it with Austin, that she "thought it was okay," at which point Tim's mouth forms a perfect jaw-dropping oval at what's going on around him.

* GrewASpine: Throughout ''Joe Schmo 2'', Eleanor is a weeper who breaks down crying due to the smallest slights from Austin, usually because of him favoring the ditz Cammy over her. Just before she quits, however, she finds it in herself to refuse Austin's offer of a pearl necklace to remain the show, telling him...
-->'''Eleanor''': You can take your pearl necklace and your half-hearted locket and shove it up your ass.

* ComicallyMissingThePoint: In the second season, Bryce's frog Everett is killed off-screen (at least in the storyline created for the show anyway) by the falcon Montecore. Bryce, however, at first blames the ditz Cammy, who was acting as the frog's caretaker, for killing him by feeding him donuts.
-->'''Bryce''': You killed him by giving him a donut?

''The Joe Schmo Show'' was at once a RealityShow and a spoof of reality shows. The first season centered around Matt Kennedy Gould, a regular guy who is selected as a contestant on the reality game show ''Lap of Luxury''. What he didn't realize, however, is that everybody else around him was an actor, specifically selected to play a reality-show archetype such as "The RichBitch", "The [[CampGay Gay Guy]]", "The [[{{Jerkass}} Asshole]]", and "The SmarmyHost". The scenes in the house were cut with standard reality-show style interviews, both from Matt and from the actors, who would describe how they felt about keeping the charade going on this guy. (Once they got to know Gould, and realized how much a truly nice and upright a guy he was, fooling him became emotionally harder and harder for the actors involved.) Despite several close calls, Matt didn't find out the truth until TheReveal in the season finale. After this, the series was rerun under the title ''Mo' Schmo'', with Matt giving a running commentary over it now that he knew the whole thing was fake. (Though this only lasted for four episodes before Spike pulled these repeats due to sagging ratings.) Future television and movie star Creator/KristenWiig appeared on the first ''Joe Schmo'' in her first big role as Dr. Pat, the incompetent therapist.

** In Season 2 the same pair of actors played both Austin's parents and Piper's parents. (The show could get away with this because the first dinner was only with the male "contestants" and the second was only with the females. Part of the reveal for the final episode was when they called for Austin and Pipers' parents to come in, and only these two actors showed up.)

* {{Beat}}: Derek does this in the second season just after the cast has watched Cammy's ''Porked 'n Beans'' video. "I'm sorry we had see that (''beat'') on such a small monitor."

''Joe Schmo 2'', the second season, brought in 2 schmoes, Tim Walsh and Ingrid Weise, for a parody reality relationship show, ''Last Chance for Love''. This season was often criticized for taking the premise ''way'' over the top, and for practically daring the schmoes to figure out the truth (which one, Ingrid, eventually did; they kept things going by having her join the actors and bringing in a new Schmo, Amanda Naughton). As well, neither Tim nor Ingrid was really as likeable as Matt was. Because of this, season 2 never really did quite as well as season 1, {{ratings}}- or acclaim-wise.
