No argument at all.
I have been a strong advocate of Tali because I think she is pretty and seems mature BUT I won't go to the mat for any of them because I don't feel like I know them at all. Honestly, all I know about these girls at this point is that they are considered overweight, and they are portrayed as being obsessed with it.
For a show that has as it's premise that people come in all shapes and sizes, and love isn't limited to skinny girls, the producers seem hypocritical in making every minute of every episode about size.
If Mandy wins, great. I don't think Luke is that much of a prize, but then again, how would I know? We don't know anything of substance about any of these people.....and wouldn't you guys agree that this is increasingly the trend in Fleiss' productions? The conversations are so devoid of any substance - they even scolded Luke (according to the LA Times) when he gets into conversations about "belief systems." God forbid that they talk about stuff that matters.
My gosh, the only way we knew anything about Ed - the pathological liar Jillian picked - is from what we found out for ourselves and was later confirmed in the media. Since we don't have last names on any of the contestants this season, the trail is really cold.
I've watched every episode of MTL and am still wondering, "who are these people?"
