***I won't pretend that they don't exist... but I'm tired of people making them issues... that includes people that complain about them, people that assume that everything is race related, and people that are just ignorant... I can honestly say that if I'd been on that show (at least with what I've seen of it), my first choice would have been Tomiko (and I'm as white as they come)... I'm not saying that the same is true for other white people, or that there were not race reasons behind the coupling, but I would like to think that others would have given her a chance, and it was unfortunate that neither of her first two choices were interested.
>=Adrian wasn't selected by anyone.. and
>he is WAY better looking
***He's also a way bigger idiot... did you hear how full of himself he was in those six-minute "dates"??? I don't blame the girls from running from him... who wants someone that loves himself so much that she'd always take second.
>=Tomiko wasn't selected.. as GORGEOUS and
>nice as she is
***It's not Tomiko's fault that Adrian has low self-esteem... Adrian was so convinced that no other female would be interested, that he went to the one that had chosen him (albeit, as a third choice)... none of the other guys would dare step in and break up a couple that wanted to stay together, so no other guys even tried... did you see how quickly Adrian ran to Tomiko??? No other guy had a chance... too bad for her. The same situation was true for Laura with Anthony.
>=Jeanette wasn't selected
***Yes she was!!! Not by one specific guy, in the first episode where she got to choose, but when the guys had the choice, Mike went straight to her!... just because one guy rejected her, doesn't mean that she was never selected... I'm sure that every girl has experienced rejection at some point.
>=Poor Mike and Lisa were a
>little older, and weren't the
>typical tan blonde etc that
>the others were
***Yes... but now all of the girls seem to have taken a liking to Mike (although I'm not sure if it's sexual attraction)... his staying on the ship seemed to be a big bargaining chip in the second female jury.
Lisa's self-esteem is below low... it's really hard to like someone that doesn't like themselves... (following that reasoning, Mike should have all the women by now...)

***Have they really bonded... I think that Adrian believes that he has no choice, but I would bet that Tomiko wants out. From the previews, we see that eventually Tomiko and Mike will be paired up... the question is will that happen before or after needy Adrian heads to loser island...

Unfortunately, with a cast of 16, it's impossible to get a true crossection of the American public... if they chose to have an all white cast, or an all black cast, or an all Jewish cast, or an all anything cast, people would cry racism... I think that the producers did a good job of finding people with distinct personalities that represent a broad crossection of America.
If these people were in a real-life environment, they would have many more people to choose from. But with only 8 to choose from, I'm not surprised that a few have chosen to date people similar to themselves (especially the "old Jews").
Before you, or anyone else cries racism, let's see what happens... and even if they end up losing, look at their actions before you judge the color of their skin... it's the same way that I will judge the situation.
You never know what might be up my sleeeve...
