    In all fairness to the show, without knowing how many asians applied to be on the show it would be impossible to know if it was fair or not. Maybe they are a low percentage of applicants.

    Yeah. I don't really care how many asians, hispanics, whites, etc. are on the show.

    Jun Song should have been casted in Survivor instead of BB4. She'll be on familiar territory with the snakes!

    Given this, I don't think that it's unreasonable that only 2 asians have participated so far. Had it been 1000 participants, it should be closer to 4%.

    (ETA, 4 % - not 4 persons)
    thanks for your effort.

    I was thinking about the minorities on the show. It is possible that not that many Asians apply to be on the show, right? And if they aren't worthy contestants than they shouldn't be on. I wouldn't want them to put them on, just because they need to put more minorities on the show. I just want to see people on here who actually know what they're doing.

    That list does not include Nicole, who never watched the show before this season! And she's white. I wish someone else could've taken her place.

    It's probably an unwritten rule that at least one African American has to be on the show or else everything thinks the show is racist, but what about all the other minorities?

    What is Quechan? Is that his last name or his ethnicity?
