19 August 2004 | by (a chair next to the computer) – See all my reviews

Alas, this is how much of current television is. The contestants seem to fit in a very small age range ( ignoring the existence of the millions of people outside the range ), are relatively attractive looking ( as if to say everyone else shouldn't be out in public ), and often bicker/insults the competition ( can't people get along? ). There also tend to be many shows where ALL the contestants are black, or none are, indicating some type of racial hangup with either the contestants ( all colors ) and/or the producers. Is my calendar wrong? Are we not in the 21st century?

For people new to America, I hope they don't assume all Americans are like the contestants on this show. SOME Americans are shallow, have a short attention span, and are sex-obsessed, but not all.
