Wow. Not too sexist. You put up an article about getting to see the new Survivor cast, put up hot shots of all the women and don't bother to show the guys at all. I mean, I'm a guy and not looking to oggle guys or anything but I'd like to see pics of the whole cast.

Only two under 25. I think the men vs. women thing actually works well on the show. I like how it forces the women to not use their looks to latch onto lonely guys or guys looking for some pimp rep. Also it keeps the guys from picking up a couple of easy votes from some girls. No returnings this time, Herc?
Jan. 18, 2012, 6:32 p.m. CST
Kin Spradlin? more like Kim Spreadin'Em, amiright? and the rest are all men....ha.
Jan. 18, 2012, 6:37 p.m. CST
the VERY FIRST video I posted features ALL the guys. You can pause and rewind to your heart's content.

Next One's nice, but geez, lose the boots, looks stupid on the beach. Cute hipster chick! Yikes, Sarah Jessica Parker look-alike! Sistah's not bad at all, nice body anyway. 31? I think we've been 31 for about a decade or so, hmm? I couldn't give a rat's ass what the dudes look like.

ex-NFL Players wife... is she Ex because Daunte is retired and no longer plays in the NFL? or EX because they're divorced AND he's retired?!?!
Jan. 18, 2012, 6:45 p.m. CST
51 year old looks okay for 51 I guess.
Jan. 18, 2012, 6:57 p.m. CST
If that person gets on, I'm probably gonna have to avoid Coaxial, lol.

Really nice and really sweet. What's funny is that when American Gladiators was on last, I had another high school friend Ally Davidson win the whole thing. Hope history repeats itself!

Chelsea is looking pretty hot to me, as are at least 3 other girls in that tribe. But Chelsea is already my favorite though I agree that she needs to lose those boots.
Jan. 18, 2012, 7:54 p.m. CST
What's a guy supposed to do with all those TEETH. Scary lookin broad.
Jan. 18, 2012, 7:54 p.m. CST
If you're in a Survivor talkback you're gay already. Not exactly scared of being labeled that.

Short-haired chick who actually looks 35? Would totally hit that.
Jan. 18, 2012, 8:20 p.m. CST
looks like shes had some heart surgery in the young days.
Jan. 18, 2012, 8:37 p.m. CST
Sexy. Plus, they must make... ALL MIDGET/DWARF SURVIVOR!

How can you not be embarrassed that THAT is what defines you as a person? Its even what she brings up in the video, that her "experience" as an ex-NFL player's wife is what gives her more wisdom then her contestants. Jeez.

i get guess they are going to be used as comic relief??
Jan. 19, 2012, 2:18 a.m. CST
Looks like only 3 sets of fakes this time. But are you sure *learn* is the right word to use? For anything related to reality TV?
Jan. 19, 2012, 2:20 a.m. CST
Kourtney Moon looks pretty scrumdillyumptious.
Jan. 19, 2012, 6:23 a.m. CST
Casting director needs to be fired. What happened to chicks like Amanda, Pavarti, Elisabeth and the like ? Also, they need more regular joe schlubs - those people are usually used to working for what they get in life, rather than having it handed to them like a hot chick .... that's why trainwrecks like Sandra and Cirie go far in this game.
Jan. 19, 2012, 8:33 a.m. CST
Ex-defensive lineman for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Jan. 19, 2012, 9:23 a.m. CST
4 or 5--have been complete fucking douchebags. Seriously it's "short man's syndrome" ramped up on meth. This guy will be gone before we know what his name is.
Jan. 19, 2012, 9:41 a.m. CST
Jan. 19, 2012, 12:37 p.m. CST
...Fonzie wearing a leather jacket to jump the shark. I love Survivor though.
Jan. 19, 2012, 1:20 p.m. CST
I think the main factor in whether a short guy gets the syndrome or not depends on how they deal with it as kids. Like any of the short guys I went to school with that were scrappers and had 'short man syndrome' as kids, grew up to be pretty well adjusted people. The ones that were meek and let themselves be bullied (not just short guys, but the bullied ones in general) grew up to be pretty huge assholes. I imagine if you don't confront that stuff early on you just end up carrying resentment all your life. I remember watching David Cassidy on Celebrity Apprentice a while back and noticing how he seemed to blame how people treated him on his height and their prejudice. What *I* noticed was how incredibly meek and doormat-ish he was, which is probably the real reason people were walking all over him.
Jan. 19, 2012, 1:23 p.m. CST
imagine being an adult and still having people doing the same immature shit as when you were in grade school, knowing people are staring at you everywhere you go, having to deal with kids making fun of you *in front of other adults* and the ones who are nice to you are doing it in that super-sensitive, act like your 'special' sort of way. Honestly, I don't know what stops them from despising the world.
Jan. 20, 2012, 8:46 a.m. CST
Challenges are the least important aspect of the game.
Jan. 21, 2012, 1:11 p.m. CST
...have got a full blown (pun intended) case of the gay. Hit the homo sites if you guys want to look at men so much.
