Carol Perkins: Celebrity sighting leads to booking
Joe, the star from Columbia, KY, on "Bachelorette" spotted at Barren River Lodge, has been booked for a guest appearance and even greater stardom on an upcoming "Susan & Carol Unscripted" show.

By Carol Perkins
If there is a celebrity sighting, I will be nearby. A recent one, however, left me confused and it was Guy's fault. We had gone to Barren River Lodge for Father's Day lunch (along with most of Barren County) and because there were only two of us, we were seated rather quickly. While we were waiting, I glanced at the first table in direct line with the checkout and at the end of that table, I saw someone who looked familiar.
I starred subtly, glancing off when he glanced my way, and finally leaned toward Guy and said, "Look at the guy sitting at the end of that table." I used my head to indicate direction but he didn't catch on to my attempt to be undercover. "What table?"
"The table in front of us. I think the man at the end is from "The Bachelorette."
He couldn't follow along. "What man from "The Bachelorette?"
"You know; the one from Columbia?"
"Oh, that one?" he said like there were more. "What are you talking about? That doesn't look a thing like him." Guy doesn't watch to be watching but he is in the room and reminds me during each commercial about how stupid the show is.
"Yes, it does. Looks just like him." We were seated not far from the young man who was likely celebrating Father's Day with his family. I continued to glance his way and while I was doing so, several men approached him and shook hands. They didn't shake like old friends but more as if they were meeting for the first time. "Guy, I'm sure that is Joe."
"Well, go over there and ask him." Guy was getting tired of my indecision. I didn't want to be yet another one to interrupt his lunch so I had a different idea. I quickly drummed up a plan to invite him to be on Susan and Carol-Unscripted on 99.1 the Hoss, via Facebook.
As soon as I could get to my computer, I found Joe on Facebook and sent him a note about the show and about myself and told him he could check us out online. He replied that he would like to be on the show and we settled that it might be wise to wait until the end of "The Bachelorette" (which was taped months ago). What a nice guy!
I didn't mention my sighting that day because it would have sounded so elementary. However, I did what I wanted to accomplish and I will let you know when this show is scheduled.
By the way, if you haven't "met" Joe because you can't bring yourself to watch the show (lots of kissing and crying), I might urge you to watch just to see a real Southern Kentucky gentleman who is now among the final six. I don't know how this will end as far as the show, but Joe has now become a celebrity in our area and especially at Barren River Lodge...I still am sure it was Joe no matter what Guy says. Only Joe can prove me right.
