Huh, the new Survivor series divides all the tribes by race: Caucasian, Blacks, Latino, and Asian.... The way I see it, this can end in only two ways:

1) The show gets canned after various protests from ethnic groups.
2) The show gets a bigger audience than the World Cup, since people will be watching and rooting for their group, 'cept the Mid Easterners and Native Americans.

So who would win?
Race Advantages (based on stereotypes)
Latinos: They will invade the White Tribe by crossing their border and steal food and send it back to their own zone.
Whites: They will declare Manifest Destiny, take over their neighbors' land, and steal their food.
Blacks: Has experience from the ghetto (aka: the Urban Jungle)
Asians: Eat anything (We eat dogs)

which is better: exploiting racism for advertising dollars, or paying attention to idiots who decide to do so?

I can't help but wonder if this is real or not.

Besides, we all know it's the white-man that runs this show.

Yeah it's real, cause I'm sick of people bitching about it on the morning radio shows whilst driving to work in the morning. =(

Well, that's interesting.

Curious question then, who do you honestly think would win?

All the white people they put on reality shows are too goddamned whiny. I doubt they'll win.

It's a toss up amoungst the other three.

Eeeek! Stop listening to morning radio shows! CD's ftw Very Happy

I haven't watched survivor since the one in 2001, but I'm going to guess that whatever team actually acts like a team will have the least amount of members voted off. If they can maintain that sort of cohesion beyond this little experiment in racial segregation then one of them has a really good shot at winning the whole thing.

I sincerely doubt that race in of itself is going to have any determining factor on this.
