5 Asian American ‘Survivor’ hopefuls


Survivor: Fiji kicks off Thursday with five Asian Americans among the 19 contestants.

If this casting keeps up, we’ll begin to reach the point where if there’s five Asian Americans on Survivor, it’s not a big deal any more. The Asian Americans hoping to follow Kwon’s path are Yau-Man Chan, Stacy Kimball, Mookie Lee, Sylvia Kwan and Michelle Yi.

And come to think of it, just glancing at the entire cast, it’s pretty diverse with what looks like five black members, four Latinos, nine women and three people over 50.
