Advertisements Overall it was an ok episode and I'm not sure I like this ethnic seperation thing yet, especially since some of it kind of played out really stereotypical (lazy black guy, ghetto comment by black team, asians "smarter" i.e. doing puzzle quicker, etc.) Random thoughts: Why should LOSING team be rewarded by sending someone from the winning teams to Exile Island? Did they actually recruit these folks rather than have them come in and audition as someone said in this thread? I know there have always been a fair share of out of work actors on these things, but I have heard that 13 of the 20 are from L.A.? Does the average person still have a chance to be on these shows? And if they have been recruited or are actors, what's the point of giving prize money to people asked to be on the show (All-Stars is different)? Any bets that Cao Boi's name is made up? And I hope there's a back story as to why he wears the Star of David around his neck. Were one of his parents a U.S. soldier stationed in VN?
