  1. I wonder if Zach isn’t returning right away because he isn’t from California.

    • That’s exactly it, all the contestants for the time being will be from SoCal. Check out Andy’s great info about the new season on this site’s main page.

    Pretty interesting that there was a contestant named Iman today.

    Reminds me of the supermodel with the same name.

    Also nice to see Jennifer, who is from my home state!
