Some of us who didn’t manage to tune into Oxygen’s Glee Project last summer (me) let out a collective gasp during last night’s Glee, when new student Joe Hart introduced himself to Mercedes’ God Squad. And I’m sure some of you who did watch the reality competition were jumping up and down with, well, glee at the sight of those piercing hazel eyes — it was Samuel Larsen, the other winner of the reality show (besides Damian McGinty, a.k.a. Rory Flanagan). And we have to agree with Quinn, his character reminded us a little of Jesus — the kind of Jesus (the barefoot, home-schooled, love everyone, singing kind) that could make a Jewish girl convert. So, when he took the lead on “Stereo Hearts” and sang to Rachel, we got a little worried for Finn, even though Joe and the God Squad were just delivering Finn’s singing telegram. I mean, if the guy can change our minds about dreadlocks, he certainly has a shot at changing Rachel’s mind, maybe just for a minute, about marrying Finn.
That, of course, got us thinking that we should put it to a vote. Given the choice between Sam, the California-born, 20-year-old musician whose real-life Christianity inspired Ryan Murphy to create Joe, and Cory Monteith, the 29-year-old Canadian who’s been praying to Grilled Cheesus and turning us to mush for two-and-a-half years now, who would you pick? Peruse this little gallery and vote!
