My personal Asian Americans in pop culture tally was pretty sparse this week….
Top Chef: Of course, the sexiest foodie on the face of the Earth Padma Laksmi represents as the host. On Top Chef Masters Korean American Kelly Choi makes it hot as the host – yet another hottie – but I still think Padma is a bit hotter. Sorry Kelly. On the contestant front, Preeti Mistry represents the Indian-Americans like the hot host.
Project Runway: The “at one with the universe” Malvin Vien represented the Asian Americans but perhaps he was a bit too avant garde for his own good. He and his lopsided coif got “auf’d” last week.
Why does this picture scare me? It’s like a really bad senior picture from the mid-90s.
The Mentalist: Tim Kang. I don’t watch the show but Lenee gave me this tip – and she is MORE than a reliable source.
Unfortunately, there were no Asians in Inglorious Basterds (at least I didn’t see any) – and that may be a good thing depending on how you look at it.
That brings the total to 26 since my last post.
