    Who was Blair (culture guy) in episodes 2 & 3??

    Does anyone remember how Jai wasn't in episodes 2 and 3 and there was that other [african-american] guy in his place, Blair? Why was he there, and where was Jai during those 2 episodes? I don't think there ever was an explanation on the show.

    Blair was the original Culture Guy and was replaced by Jai after he had filmed 2 episodes. (No reason was given. The producers have only said that Blair didn't work out.)

    The episodes were shown out of order, however, which is why Jai was in the 1st one that aired.

    Yeah, when I saw Blair, I was like, "Whoa, where's my Jai?" But Blair was okay, he's just not as good Jai

    Oh! Thanks for the clearing that up!
    Yeah, I'm glad Blair was replaced by Jai. Jai rocks.

    Actually Blair wasn't the onne originally chosen to be the culture expert either, some journalist was but he never made it onto film. I've never heard more than "he didn't work out" for why Blair got the boot.

    yeah, that's what I've heard too. He seemed to fit in really well with the group, but ya never know, I guess.

    It seemed to me that he was over shadowed by the others. Jai seems to shine all on his own. I know many will agree with me on that!

    from what I gathered Blair was contracted to do the pilot(s).

    Upon the pilot getting picked up his position was re-cast for Jai. This happens alot, they just normally don't put the pilot on during the season, but since this was conceived planned to be launch before NBC bought bravo, I could see how this was a great cost concious decision.

    Blair seemed too quiet for the episodes that I saw him in. Jai is more outgoing...
