Just listen to the third theme song. They say that Mike too was "a regular Joel they didn't like." So I guess they shot him into space for the same reasons they did for the first Joel.
I guess Kinga Forrestor has no similar dislike for Joels, as there's no mention of Jonah being a Joel at all.
Well, she did try to marry him (for ratings, but still.)
And, for the record, they shot Mike "in his face". I assume they didn't have proper life support systems in Deep 13 for his recovery and sent him up for Gypsy to take care of. Eventually he got better and was able to return to Earth, though due to the medical bills he had to share a small apartment with the bots who got jobs on automated assembly lines, at first at Johnson Controls, but not for long due to their constant giggling, then later at Kohler which was ok with it for some reason.
