Contestant-related press and rumors

January 26, 2005 - "I 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." - Jeff Probst's pre-game comments on the contestants, from the official CBS site.
January 14, 2005 - A new poster named freudianslip pops up at Blows to talk about the Alabama models...
Note: The whimsical claim to know both Ibrehem and Bobby Jon, combined with the *S* signature on the last post, leads us to believe this may be another ghostly work of fiction. Beleve at your own risk.

(1/14) 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 experience 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!

(1/14) *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 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 happen, 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 for him.

(1/14) *L*.....bobby is a sweet, kid from a small, southern town......and he is 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.

(1/19) And yes, he had lost a lot of weight.........*S*.
