    Actually, I was thinking maybe Amy was yelling at Kristin and Alex was because they didnt want her to be around Beau too much. Alex did say that hes afraid Bea might influence her...

    I missed this part of the show, I'm not sorry that I didnt see it. I cant tolerate ethnic slurs, stereotypes or general cattyness towards something you had no control over or say about.. you are who you are born to be.
    bleah I think Alex should just shut his pie hole. It would be nice if some of Dave's pals were waiting at the airport to meet Alex, he can count the chips they shove up his nether regions.

    Well, unfortunately that's what I was suggesting when I started this post. I'm not the world's greatest lip reader, but I'm pretty sure he said "You effin K#ke." If that is indeed the case, I really think that FOX and/or the producers of the show should have kicked him off immediately. I'm not Mr. Politically correct by any means, but that is about the worst thing you could say to a Jewish person. It would be the same thing as if he used the "N" word to an African American (which, I'm sad to say, it appears Alex would probably do as well).

    This is just a friggin game, and there is no reason in the world why Dave should be subjected to that type of abuse. He should have gone to the producers immediately (or right after punching Alex's lights out) and demanded that he be thrown off the show. Having watched way too much reality tv in my life, I can be pretty confident in saying that is precisely what would have happened had this occured anywhere BUT a FOX show.

    Had Dave done the knee-jerk thing and punched this real jerk out, Dave would have been lead off the island. Apparently there is a no physical threat clause in their contracts. I have no idea where I read this, I read crap all over the place on the net. If you really want to find it I'm sure you'll be able to

    I can't imagine any of them acting like that on the outside. Very repugnant.
    I was wondering this too. While I can imagine Alex being a cheater, Kristin being a slut, and Amy being a whiner, I just can't picture Zack as a lawyer.

    I agree with you though. Do they really act like this in their own reality? I work with professional actors and they are dramatic folk, but the people on PH take the Oscar, Tony, BAFTA, and cake!

    I just rewatched the casino bit. Alex was talking to Amy and said something along the lines of "watch this" then he moved her arm(I mean physically touched and moved her arm with his to reach her chips , she could not have not known what he was doing) , picked up a couple of her chips and put them on top of the bet she had already made. She looked down and watched him do it . Then Alex picked up a green chip off the table and put it in his pocket and went to Kristen to tell her he had just stole a thousand, to which she said "good".
    So if Amy is screaming at Alex and Kristen about getting her in trouble for cheating (from the preveiw of Wed night ) it proves that 1. She is so far out of touch that she even believes her own lies, and 2. She is only out for herself , and 3. She is the biggest friggin hypocrite PH has ever known.

    Don't get me wrong , It's not like these things are a surprise to me.
    On thread topic , I also rewatched the Alex saying something to Dave thing and unfortunately I could not make out what was said.

    mm3, you're not the only one that has said that this show (or parts of it) are scripted. My dad and I both have been saying that since the show started. Some of the stuff that happens seems a little too "fake" and forced to be spontaneous.

    Now as for what Alex said, I didn't really hear it so I can't say for sure that it was a racial/ethnic slur. But it wouldn't really surprise me if it was. It seems that every one of these shows has to have at least one racist guy on it, and of course he has to say something offensive to the lone token minority (that is, if Dave is really Jewish. I can't tell if he is or not, and it really doesn't matter anyway). It all started with "The Real World" on MTV and has continued to this day.

    Now if Alex really did use a racial slur, and it wasn't part of the script, then he needs to be gone just for that. I'm not PC by any stretch, but one thing I can't stand is ignorance, on both sides. It would still bother me if Dave had called Alex a "cracker", and I would think Dave should be tossed if that were the case.

    After rewatching again I heard....

    Alex: Dave your such a (deleted word)
    Dave: You just used a word I don't appreciate, I want you to apologize
    Alex: Whatever

    May not be verbatim but pretty close

    WTF was Kristin yelling "quick Alex ,Dave is coming " about. Did they think they only had 1 minute to cash in their chips or lose them so Alex was trying to make Dave lose his chips?

    Now THAT is the funniest thing I've heard all day!! I just feel sad if a day goes by without one good Zach joke.
