The Odds Are In For Which Race Will "Survive"

8/26/2006 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

In wake of the very controversial new season of hit reality television series "Survivor", Bodog.com has posted odds on which team will finish first on the show .

The newest installment of the reality show features tribes made up of contestants separated by their ethnicity. White, Asian American, Hispanic, and African-American tribes will be playing to survive the Polynesian Cook Islands.

Here are the numbers:

The Asian Americans......................13/7
The Hispanics.................................3/1
The African-American......................7/3
The Whites.....................................3/2

To the average Joe who doesn't play the sportsbook, this basically says that Whites will triumph, Blacks a close second (betting on them will double your bet), Hispanics in third (will pay three times your bet), and Asians have no chance.

TMZ wants to know what about the Indians and the Jews?

Asians are 13/7 which means they are 2nd favorites to win. 13/7 doesn't quite double your money.

You morons need to go back to school and take remedial math. My 10 year old could tell you that you screwed up the order.

The order is Whites, Asians, Blacks, Hispanics.

Jewish is no more or less a "race" than Hispanic. Still, should make for an interesting show as long as people have fun with it and don't get all PC about it like I've been hearing.

I can only assume this is some sacrificial goat on the part of Survivor to overshadow Mel Gibson's astounding bigotry, as it is the most inappropriate premise for a competitive show imaginable.

Too bad there's no gay Native American team. Dare anyone to find a group with more of an oppression/anger fuel base.

I would love to see two things: the GAY Team vs. the Lesbian team vs. the Funda"mental"ist team; fun right? And, I would love to see "real" people- not super pretty with million dollar smiles for television people... please don't let another Elizabeth Hassleblecch emerge from this one... :)

This show is stupid. We already have enough tension between races without adding a real competition to the mix. And you know race will be an issue on the show . . . I mean, it is the show. People will comment on who's right and who's wrong and emotion will get involved. The fact is that we’re a race conscious society and if we were really okay with race, there would not be a need for competition at all. If we are supposedly equal, then technically there should be no such thing as a one race being more capable than another. And no matter the winner or loser negative stereotypes will be suggested. It's a immature and stupid idea. Let's stick together and not let this divide us. Teenagers and children will be watching this. Is this what we're want to teach them? That race is important and let's root for the skin color that matches our own?
