    Really, its so predictable. So lets just PRETEND I made one.

    His advantages: He will be more recognizable to a rank and file New Yorker than any one else on this cast. He's also a local boy and will know the geography, which is frequently important on this show.

    His disadvantages: I doubt he can leverage that local celeb factor properly. He's got no business background that I know of, and there's no special reason to think he's hiding genius.

    For his charity alone, I hope he lasts awhile. My dad died of pancreatic cancer and I hope it is something, that in my lifetime, is completely erased off the face of the Earth!

    Love this! In one of the clips of future episodes, in the opening, we see him standing behind Piers with no one else beside him. It appears that the numbers have diminished to the point where they are only short one chair. Piers, Vincent and Lennox (all pictured) survive a number of eliminations.

    He has one of the best recognition factors out of this group along with Gene and Billy. Piers show was wildly popular as well. He may hang in for quite awhile if this factor plays into winning challenges.

    Wasn't he supposed to be on "Dancing with the Stars"? If so, then apparently he feels some deep-seated compulsion to be on a reality show, any reality show, for some reason.

    Actors always strive to work. My guess is that reality TV is probably on the bottom of their list but they take what they can get. If no offers come in for a series or movie then you have to get your face in the news somehow.

    I think it's more of a deep-seated compulsion to be working, no matter what type of work it is.

    Maybe to make up for his failure with Celebrity Fat Fit Club?
