New "Survivor" cast: Recognize anyone??

I had heard that there may be a local connection -- possibly in the Lawrenceburg area -- for one of the cast members on "Survivor: Cook Islands" announced today... but nothing is apparent from the CBS release. If you recognize a name below, or the cast photo posted at www.cbs.com, pls email me soonest at jkiesewetter@enquirer.com.
The new twists for "Survivor13" are the largest cast ever (20), and most racially diverse, divided into four ethnic tribes: African-American, Asian-American, Hispanic and Caucasian. Now won't that make for an interesting merge!

What if they just separated everyone by eye color? Or hair color?

I think it's more outrageous that more than half the players are from California.

Um, any FCC or EEOC violations for this? This is idiotic and racist. It's also a cheap gimmick to discuss this program and receive pseudo promotion.

A black eye for the Tiffany Network.

Okay granted it's probably not the most politically correct thing to do but they've done nothing legally wrong. They haven't discriminated against anyone or denied anyone access to the show. If the cast was filled with blonde haired, blue eyed, white men you might have something there but that is not the case. The cast is obviously rather diverse.

Why is this racist? White people are actually going to be the MINORITY on this show. There are going to be more blacks, hispanics, and asians combined.

I've heard so many idiotic comments about this. Its not about superiority or anything like that. It's a ratings stunt. All you're doing is feeding into it by fighting it.
