Joseph is featured as one of the members of the cast in the VH1 reality television series The Pickup Artist. He is 23 years old and originally from Minnesota, though he has lived in Los Angeles for a year, and he has worked as a caterer for numerous weddings. However, he has often wondered whether he’ll ever get to have his own happy wedding. He certainly has no problem getting women’s attention with his quirky manner and his flamboyant habits, but more often than not, they mistake him for being gay. Just because he has a passion for musical theater and enjoys wearing rhinestone heart sunglasses doesn’t mean that he swings that way, he says.
He usually strolls up to a lady with a loud and oddly endearing “Hello, let’s be friends!” Predictably enough, while he does manage to become buddies with the women he meets, few of them ever consider him for much deeper and more serious relationships. He also finds himself intimidated by the girls that he finds truly attractive, opting instead for the non-threatening and gigglier ones. While he wants to build up his attraction past the level of just friends, he has found it a highly difficult challenge so far.
