It was finally decided that the producers would reveal to Wiese that she had correctly deduced that the entire thing was a hoax during an activity where Walsh was not present. Clair, Pennsylvania native Amanda Naughton was added to the cast.
Wiese was then made an offer: as long as she agreed to stay on the show, in effect becoming a cast member herself, and to not reveal the hoax to Walsh, she would receive the same 0,000 prize that Walsh would be given at the end of the series had he himself not figured the hoax out.

On December 10, 2012, Spike announced it was bringing The Joe Schmo Show back for a third season, which premiered on January 8, 2013.
The only constant presence in all three Joe Schmo seasons has been voice actor Ralph Garman, who has served as the "emcee" for all three editions (playing a smarmier caricature of himself in the first, a pompous British man in the second, and a bounty hunter in the third).

The Joe Schmo 2 was released on DVD with additional and uncensored footage in 2009.This time the premise was to fool two people, a man and a woman.The male role was filled by Tim Walsh, while Ingrid Wiese was chosen to be the female "schmo". Ralph Garman returned to host the second season as Derek Newcastle, dying his hair blond and wearing a fake beard, glasses, blue contact lenses, and false teeth plus spoke with a British accent so he would not be recognized by the new contestants.Gould's sensitivity came to the forefront in a later episode featuring a sumo wrestling contest.
