    No, you're not the only one bothered by that. Addtionallly, I am still bothered by Malcolm stating twice that he had been inspired by O.J. Simpson. He did state that it was prior to the murders, but to still consider him an inspiration for whatever reason just doesn't sit well with me.

I've known people who were really cool people to be around and people I really liked, but not ones I would want my daughter to get mixed up with. Quite frankly, his likeability is probably why he is able to be an accomplished liar with woman. I hope that he will outgrow this as he matures and seeks more permanent/lasting relationships in his life, but he is young and it would seem this is not what he seeks at this point.
    NCLurker:
    You make a lot of good points.
    I confess to being on of those who gives Malcolm a pass on the things that have been mentioned, probably because he is so darn easy to look at.

    In my "defense" studies have shown that attractive people have an easier time being accepted etc. than those who are not, because someplace deep inside human beings equate physical beauty with moral/spiritual beauty. It was a big deal in the Renaissance with artists like Michelangelo and Raphael etc.

    So I'm not alone in having that reaction but I really do need to be more aware of why I am responding in certain ways to specific individuals. It's helpful info to have and refer to often in real life.

    Count me in. From the minute I read his first bio, he set off my douchebag radar. Still don't like him. Pretty is as pretty does.

    Right, I was also on the Whaaat?!! line about the OJ remark, but as I said then I think he may have been too young to follow the trial, etc., and just been inspired by some old book about OJ's childhood. And I don't know that he had time to revise it much between Survivor seasons.... Certainly his behavior in his first season was not at all the douchebag style---he formed an alliance with a Sherri type older woman and generally stuck to it for a long time. Not the usual pretty boy, Reynold type, behavior. Which is why I'm a little dismayed by the line about having all this experience lying to women outside the game... Here I was thinking well for once someone wasn't spoiled by being born with good looks. Hoping he can explain that some day.

    I don't recall his first season bio ... but ... I thought the comment about "being accomplished liar with woman" was sort of a great one-liner ... an attempt at joking, that is..

I heard that comment and took it to mean he was talking about lying to females this season as well as from his past season. Not saying you are wrong and I am right, but just hearing the same thing and not taking it the same way.

    I know Malcolm while in college helped to organize and run a program that paired varsity athletes with underprivileged children in a free-to-join sports league. It still exists today. I don't know if I am right, but I still have high regard of Malcolm as a person and jmho.

    Just another side note that I am not sure if anyone was aware of, but last season at the finale when they took a vote to see if Denise would have won if Malcolm was there with her and the vote turned out to show she still would have won. Come to find out it was a prank by Carter, Penner, and Pete who figured that question was going to be asked and said that they were going to lie and not raise their hands when asked that question by Jeff. It was to pull a prank on Jeff Probst as Jeff was just about positive that Malcolm would have won if Denise and Malcolm had been there at the end. They told Malcolm ahead of time what they were doing and just wanted to mess with it. Malcolm asked the interviewer on the Red Carpet if he noticed that Malcolm turned around and was cracking up. He also went on to say that he is close friends with all of them including Lisa and talked to Denise almost daily.
    I didn't know any of that! Thanks! I'm glad Denise made the right decision then, as I was hoping for her to win. I would have wanted Malcolm to be 2nd, but, like Jeff, I was pretty sure that wouldn't happen if Malcolm were up there.

    I'm a Malcolm fan so I may be biased, but I thought he was just being facetious when he said he was good at lying to women.

    Well, it didn't upset me that he made the comment. I cringed a little because those type comments nearly always garner a good bit of negative debate, but I happen to think his actions have spoken far more about who he truly is than any words he has spoken to this point. I was expecting him to be a piece of work in the most negative way, but that isn't at all what I have witnessed in either season. I don't know him in real life and, therefore, cannot pass judgement on what he may or may not be in that realm.

    I didn't even think about it afterwards.

    I hope he was, that and the OJ thing in his bio x2 doesn't make for such a nice guy.
