be great, but you know, the thing about it is, if someone’s down
with the brown, then I'm their man, if they’re not, then I’m
[bleep] out of luck. I equate it to like having a Twinkie and a Twix.
Some people like Twinkies, some people like Twix. I’m that Twix.
If you don’t like Twix, and you like that Twinkie, then that’s
fine with me. I think my personality is really good. I think I, I can
talk to anybody. I mean, I can talk a dog down off a meat wagon, it
really doesn’t matter. And I, I’ve got decent style. I
wouldn’t necessarily go as far as to say I’m a hunk. I
like to work out, it's part of my daily regimen. It’s just like
when you get up in the morning and you go brush your teeth, I get up
and go brush the teeth, and go work out. It's something I've always
done. I take pride in keeping my temple clean. I’ve had some
family members in the past that have chosen to poison their temple,
and as a result, they’ve died young. I love life and I want to
live long, so I'm going to try to keep my temple clean."

"A friend of mine (who doesn't watch Survivor, but
knows that I do) told me today that a co-worker of her husband's

substantial amount of weight. She said he is a black
male, but (of course) had forgotten his name."

"It was something along the lines of him (the contestant) saying
that it was an extremely rough, difficult experience. This would
seem to imply that he lasted quite a while in the game."
- Name confirmed!
"Just got an email from my friend. It is him, although she spelled
his first name 'Ostin'."

|Re: S7 contestants
- I can confirm that one of the contestants is an African American
male named Austin Taylor, since I happened to speak with his
parents (both Afircan American ministers) this past weekend.
I understand people can doubt the validity of this, but that's
my two cents on this topic....
- I didn't get the specifics (it was just a passing conversation),
but I know his parents live in New England. He may live somewhere
else in the US.
- It could be Osten and not Austin. I just heard his name said and
assumed the traditional spelling. NH sounds right for home state
and if he lived in Durham, that means he was at UNH
