I don't know, that Barbie girl they interviewed was a big nothing in the personality department. Even Judd, who seemed to be interested in her for looks only couldn't find a reason to vote for her. But I'm a little surprised Mark didn't get in, he certainly had personality. Guess it's all for the best, since he and Kit were so great for the inaugural Road Rules. (having watched some of the challenges Mark was on during the Robin/Jodi era, the shine has majorly come off his star, but I enjoyed him back in the earlier days).
But given that the LA season replacements were the obnoxious Glenn and the often sanctimonious and boring Beth A, both Jo and Mark were better options for the SF crew.
LOL, I was probably all of 12 or 13 when this aired and even then, I felt the bad vibes emanating from Beth. Having binged some of the challenges that are now on Netflix, it's sad to say that she has not changed or evolved AT ALL from her RW LA days.
The David situation did seem to be egged on by Beth, and later Irene, who I believe was influenced by Beth. I truly don't think he had ill intentions, he really seemed to think they were messing around because she was still laughing. And honestly, had that happened in a private party or private house situation, it probably would have been a joke, but she got embarrassed after the fact thinking about the cameras and all the people who'd be watching. It's really hard to say that David should have 100% known that she was uncomfortable because there really weren't signs that she was until after the fact. I can see being upset, but I do think it was unfair the way he was vilified as nearly a rapist for that. And again, mostly due to Beth S riling everyone up.
I totally don't remember this guy, but I'm retroactively sad that they had an option for someone other than Glenn and made the wrong choice. Glenn just added to the bad vibes in this house and it was already loaded to the gills with bad vibes. This is one of the seasons that I can't really rewatch because it was just so awkward. They had some important moments, like Tami's work at the HIV clinic, abortion, and most important of all, her appearance on STUDS 😜, but the overall house vibe was just painful. Dom and Aaron were the only relationship that formed and that was mainly borne of loathing everyone else, I don't think those 2 would have found each other so relatable if there had been other people available to them, but given the rest of the crew, there weren't any other options.
I remember liking Aaron when I first watched the season back when it aired, but when I finally watched it again as an adult, holy shit was he a sanctimonious, know-it-all 22 year old!
