This article describes how reality television show contestant Adam Mesh is now getting his own show to meet girls, after being rejected. Adam Mesh was nervous before greeting the busload of women who would be vying for his heart. "This isn't Average Jane," he says of his new NBC reality series, Average Joe: Adam Returns, which starts March 15. Of course, they had a lot of women to choose from. The day after the Dec. 8 Joe finale, during which Scantlin dumped the lovestruck stock trader for hunky L.A. waiter Jason Peoples, Mesh, 28, came home from work to discover what he says were "hundreds of messages" from female callers on his answering machine. On the first day of taping at the same Palm Springs mansion where the first Joe took place, Mesh ran a mile up a nearby hill, getting pumped to the Rocky soundtrack blaring in his headphones. INSET: ADAM IN PARADISE: MEET THE WOMEN.
