Yul Kwon wins Survivor: Cook Islands

20061218_024241_qykwon.jpgAnd what better way to kick off the alpha version of 8Asians than with the mandatory post about Korean-American Yul Kwon winning Survivor: Cook Islands? Yul was known as Puppet master or Godfather due to his strategical playing, but was also hyper-aware that he was playing as an underrepresented minority on reality television. This might have been gotten him some backlash, but I for one enjoyed the fact that there were five (FIVE!) Asians on a television show and not have the plot revolve the Vietnam war or Chinatown gangs.

Thanks for rating this! Now tell the world how you feel - .
