For the fourth week in a row, the majority of early show viewers, 72 percent, thought Austrian fitness model Robert should have been the one to get the boot.
Remember you can tell us who you think will be the next guy to leave "Cupid" by casting a vote from 9 a.m. Sept. 3 through 9 p.m. Sept. 9, before the show airs.
Joe, the real estate developer, had a huge family for Lisa to meet back in his hometown of Elmwood Park, Ill. Before their date, Joe took Lisa to the home he was currently working on, a home, which Joe hoped "could potentially be our future home." When he brought Lisa into the house, he asked for her opinions on how she'd remodel it, strongly hinting that she could have a big hand in how the house ended up looking. And then came the time to meet the family, an experience even Joe called "overwhelming," as the two sat eating dinner surrounded by Joe's enormous family. Joe's sister Giovanna also admitted that there were "an awful lot of Italians in one room." But Lisa didn't seem phased, even when Giovanna told her that Joe was "a spoiled, rotten kid" when they were growing up. Joe response, "In the Italian house, the guy has reign," was met with derisive giggles from his two sisters. But watching Lisa fall into the embrace of his family was no laughing matter for Joe: "I think it was totally obvious that Lisa won my family over."
Laura described Lisa's date with Joe's family as, "'My Big Fat Greek Wedding' meets 'The Godfather.'" She did have one concern, though: "I wonder if Lisa's temperament is right for your family." Kimberly, it turned out, had another concern, which she laid on the table in her typically straightforward manner: "I think that you may be in this to win. I think the competition may be a little bit more important to you than Lisa."
Once again, Joe scored big points with the audience as he replied simply, "Competition? Of course it's competition. I mean, look at this girl!" Lisa had no doubts about Joe's readiness for marriage, but she shared Kimberly's concern about his competitive instincts: "[Kimberly] wants to make sure, as do I, that you're not here to win a prize, you're here to win your future wife."
If you did not agree with America about Joe, don't fret. You might get a chance to date him or The Early Show's very own Dave Price.
