Dante Alighire just might be the breakout star of Average Joe 4: The Joes Strike Back. The hunks came into the Average Joe’s house and started throwing luggage around and making themselves at home. Dante was the only Average Joe to stand up to the hunks and went eye-to-eye in a stare-down with hunk Chris Carson. Just when it looked like a fight was about to break out, Dante planted a kiss right on Carson’s lips. Carson hit the roof, slamming his fists into a wall, and threatening to put Dante through a wall.
The first competition between the Average Joes and the hunks turned out to be a wrestling match. And of course, Dante and Carson wound up in the ring together. Dante nearly had Carson pinned to, but Carson flipped Dante at the last second and won the match. After an eating contest that the hunks forfeited and a dodgeball contest where the Average Joes were slaughtered, the hunks won the overall competition by taking two out of three. Anna selected Rocky from the hunks team for a one-on-one date, which ended in a hot make-out scene in a Jacuzzi.
For her second date, Anna chose hunk Josh Abston, who turned out to be a sensitive, non-drinking, former ballet dancer. Meanwhile, back at the Average Joe house, hunks Mike and Carson teamed up to shatter Arthur Apicella’s fantasy of Anna by telling him that she is fake and would never go for a guy like him. At the elimination, Anna sends Michael Pugliese, Greg Duke, Jason Marus, and Average Joe favorite Dante Alighire packing. The good news though is Dante is selected for the makeover and will have a chance to re-enter the competition.
