    Unless he can get his way into an unoffensive power position, I'm going with dead man walking.

    He is either going to be one of the first ones off, or he's going to make it far by flying under the radar.

    I think so too!

    I think he's going to have to align himself with either an "old" or "Asian" groupl. I honestly don't see him getting far.

    But anything could happen on Survivor!

    I had to laugh ... on another site someone commented that he lost a noticable amount of weight. C'mon ... Yau-Man lost a lot of weight? He'll eat well, and sleep well, and get regular showers ... he'll be on vacation for most of the 39 days.

    He's hoping he can find a geek alliance ... if he finds one they better hope it's a season of puzzles ... little chance he'll be the second coming of the Ozzman in physical challenges.

    One of the Korean ladies is over 50 too. She doesn't look it, but there ya go.
    An old codger alliance in the making.

    I was a big fan of Willard, pre-show, but he was a bit of a dud in the end.

    At first glance he looks like he'll blow over in the first stiff wind but I think he will go far. He and the geeky guy (anthony?) appear to be very non-threatening. I think people in this cast will put themselves at the head of the booting order either by shooting their mouth off, bad attitude or more useless than either of these 2 guys.

    He sounds a little boring, actually with all those one-word favorites and no favorite answers, but maybe he'll turn out to be the voice of reason, advisor, father-figure guy and hang around ?

    He seems a very smart -- self-described contemplative -- man who leads a rather quiet, simple life.
