Well, I think Robert is still on the show because he has a large group of people out there gleefully voting for him each week (not me...but read through the threads here and you'll see quite a few). It is pretty well known that he is an actor....whether he was somehow planted on the Cupid show, I don't know. I do suspect that he has help from somewhere planning his dates, because something bizarre happens on each and every one. The girls are who they say they are, not actresses....but I'm sure that they do have at least some lines fed to them...probably not all though.
Robert is offically a model though he seems to have done some acting as well(he was a body double in T3 for instance). As for Robert never being in the final 2, there is a huge portion of fans that love robert. Personally for me if robert wasn't on this show i wouldn't watch.
Part of me things he is putting on an act and he is looking at this as his big break. If he is i must say he is doing a good job. He basically went from a joke to a very sympathetic character and is making it believable.
Jolly's Journal rocks!
It'd be awesome if this was all an act like in Joe Millionaire. However, so much of this show seems badly planned that I wouldn't give the producer's enough credit to plant him there without a bit more proof.

I don't think the people who came up with this show are capable of being that subtle - if anyone's a plant, I think it's Renda the Street-Hustler.

This has been one of the worst reality shows. Nothing about it strikes me as well planned or scripted. You can't even find information on future episodes on the CBS website. They seem to be winging this whole thing which maybe one reason why it was so easy for even a D actor like Robert to make the cut. The speculation of Robert as a plant by Simon is just too funny. I think Simon has been raving about Robert to the press because he knows that Robert's stumbling Austrian dating skills is the one saviour for this lowly rated show.

IF, and that is a BIG IF, Robert does not win Cupid.. He should get his own talkshow. That would be awesome. His first guest - Hank.
