think his big problem is going to be integrating, for obvious reasons.
Cultural differences, only black guy on the show, and that is never
easy, no matter what anybody wants to say, there's a difference there.
And I think that's gonna be his challenge. He's a physically fit
guy, could be seen as a threat, or could be a quiet leader. It's
really hard to tell what these, what choices these guys are gonna
make. But that, that's the assessment I'd make on him."

The whimsical claim to know both Ibrehem and Bobby

believe this may be another ghostly work of fiction. Beleve at your
Hi everyone - I don't normally do boards, but becaue I am a
friend of Iberehem, just wanted you guys to know that he is
kind to everyone, not vain in any way, shape or form, and by
no means a quitter at anything. One of you was correct in that
he left school a couple of times because of some modeling gigs
that were too good to pass up. He is a smart, articulate, funny
man who loves everyone. He is the Muslim on the show, but does
not pass judgement on anyone elses form of belief or code of
living and he does not shove his beliefs on anyone else either.
He was not concerned about what the show would do to
his body at all, and said the greatest thing about the entire
was how much he learned about being resilent. He had no unkind
words to say about anyone else on the show, and I hope you
all root for him, because you would all love him if you knew
him. So wish him luck and be kind!
*smile*......I would love to tell some things, but obviously
I cannot. I also know Bobby Jon.....though not near as well
as Ibee.......Bobby is a sweet guy......not exactly a ...ummmm.....how
to say this nicely........well, let me just say that it's a
good thing that he is pretty and sweet! All I can honestly
tell you is that win or lose, Ibee is one of the best men I
know on this earth, and I too hope that the editing
doesn't do him damage. We have talked about how that might
and he is prepared for it......and if anyone can handle something
like that he can. I just hope that he goes far and that you
all get to see what an outstanding soul he is. THanks for rooting
*L*.....bobby is a sweet, kid from a small, southern town......and
very pretty.......and that's all I will say about that!
I can confirm how Ibee looked when he got back, but I would just never want to
jeapordize him........or spoil any fun in watching the game. I have not asked
him questions that he cannot answer contractually, because I would never want
to put him in a bad position.......and he is a stand-up guy that wouldn't want
to say anything that might ruin the fun or thrill for anyone else either. I will
say that when I hugged him, it was easier to get my arms around him, but that
could mean nothing at all.
And yes, he had lost a lot of weight.........*S*.
