Haven't been back to read this thread since now and I don't mean to pigeon hole any group based on my one past experience with an ex-boyfriend who was a nerd and unsuccessful.
Tonight's episode demonstrated that Larissa was far more into the nerd (Boston Brian) than a hunk. She let her guard come down, she felt comfortable and was able to start falling for a nerd. She was actually more uncomfortable with someone who seemed perfect, and on the exact same date.
I know where she's coming from. But honestly I don't think I've really given a chance for a so-called 'hunk' to sweep me off my feet. I probably would have the same insecurity that Larissa had - that Todd (hunk) was a little too smooth for her - telling her so easily/quickly a compliment. Is he like that with all the girls? Yet, it's these 'preconceived' ideas that prevent us from pursuing future relationships. As in, he's too average, too smooth, too poor, too ______.
Everyone has flaws, but it's a matter of accepting a person that you are attracted to and that can fill you in everyway. Whether that be average, good -looking, successful, unsuccessful, etc.
I guess for me I would *like* to be in a relationship with someone that yes I like looking at (for a change), but also someone who can let me be myself and I can accept for the *person* that he is too.
Okay, off my soapbox now... lol
The race is back!
Please do NOT post things about an evening's show outside the Show Discussion thread until after 2am Eastern. I have to keep saying this week after week after week...
I doubt it. From personal experience, I can confirm it's difficult or impossible to excel in sports and intellectual pursuits at the same time.

After entering university, I realized the acadamic (and athletic) standards were much more competitive; I had to devote my time/effort to acadamics or sports but not both; otherwise I would fail in both. After considering the long term career potentials, I decided to drop sports. From my 1st year university on, the heaviest weights I lift are large books in the library or my brief case.
