OK, so "Survivor" can split up its contestants according to their race and will probably get millions of viewers and astronomical advertising revenues. And yet I do the same thing with the employees in my office, and I get slapped with a discrimination lawsuit. Life is not fair. ("OK, Hu, Lee, Nguyen, you're all over by the copier. What? What did I say?")
On the other hand, think of the future editions we now have to look forward to:
- Religion Survivor (Christians vs. Jews vs. Muslims vs. Hindus);
- Sexual Orientation Survivor (Straight vs. Gay vs. Bi vs. None of the Above);
- Disability Survivor (Able-Bodied vs. Handicapped vs. Mentally Challenged vs. Severe Food Allergy);
- Quirky Trait Survivor (Narcoleptic vs. Overly Affectionate vs. Prone to Panic Attacks vs. Painfully Uncoordinated).
Um ... That last one would be me.
