[QUOTE=tjhallow;101111]I think the reason why I can't get into Cancun is because I just feel let down. Brooklyn was kind of like the good old days. I like the cast, I just can't get into the season. If Denver or Sydney aired before Cancun, I think it would have been different. Ryan is a star, and I really do miss seeing on him on my tv.[/QUOTE] How is he a star?

[quote=jesses_girl;103488]How is he a star?[/quote] He is a star in my opinion.
[QUOTE=tjhallow;103585]He is a star in my opinion.[/QUOTE] Yea i know, I just wanted to know what makes him a star to you? Seriously, not meaning to sound sarcastic or anything.
I agree with tj, whenever I watch Cancun, I just think of Brooklyn (I loved Brooklyn), and when i think of Brooklyn I especially think of Ryan. He definitely is my favorite castmember in recent years.

I need to go back and watch RW Sydney, I only watched a little bit and read what happened online. However, I am sure I will be a huge Parisa fan with the way everyone talks about her. Sry, that was pretty off topic. Now back to Ryan lol

Why is Ryan a star? I would say because of four reasons: 1) He is very multi-dimensional, multi-faceted. Some cast members from various seasons (at least as they appear on TV) are little better than cardboard cutouts with very limited variance in their personality. They are pretty much the same person whether laughing, screaming, or crying. Ryan, on the other hand, has a lot of variation. Compare him on his audition tape vs. asking JD if he were gay vs. singing to Chet the Tampon Song vs. speaking with Katelynn about her surgery vs. doing the pole dancing vs. speaking about the effect on him of 9/11 vs. shouting at JD about the shaving creme vs. him listening to the speaker at the IVAW meeting vs. laughing at Chet talking about sexual matters vs. talking about his support of Obama vs. spending time with Belle, etc. It's almost like split personality. Then there are the varierty of interests that he has with writing songs, making movies, studying history, analyzing people. All these things make him very interesting to watch. He made it never boring. 2) He's a character with a big personality. The puppet show with Chef, the Calvin Klein calls, the shoe laces, the pole dancing, the dressing like Uncle Sam, the singing of comedic songs, the going out with a fake mustache. His face is very expressive and portrays a wide range of emotions and reactions. Contrast the entertainment he provided on camera with cast from other seasons whose routine is go out, get drunk,********, fight with roommates (repeat ad nauseum). 3) He made people care about him. I saw something special in him the first episode in January, but by the end of the season there was a lot of people very interested in what was happening to him. Thus the national press coverage of his going to Iraq. It wasn't like the end of "The Truman Show" where viewers moved on and asked, so what else is on TV? 4) His military service made him pretty special. His first go around with it was sufficient to prove that. Signing up selflessly out of patriotism for the good of others, not for himself. However, when he indicated that he wouldn't try to get out of returning, because of the strength of his sense of duty and honor that compelled him to do what was right and not what was good for him, that really proved that here was someone whom we really should respect and be in awe of.

Well said.
That was amazingly well said!!
I think sometimes people want to wrap people up in a little package and put a positive bow on it. I think Conklin is a pretty interesting kid and I think he is wickedly smart. I strongly suspect that the audition interview was a lot of puff geared at trying to make himself memorable and increase his chances of getting on. I think he came into the house looking to lift himself out of being a small-town college security guard and had a master plan to do so that sort of fell somewhat by the wayside once the music producer pretty much booted him to the curb. (By the way, that guy was a jerk). I do agree that he is a huge personality and an admirable person, but he is just a person. I think there is a lot of subtle growth that went on with him during the show that did not happen to the other cast members so far as I could tell.
Does anyone know when this might air? I assume it would not run til RW Cancun is over. [URL="http://www.tradingmarkets.com/.site/news/Stock%20News/2411487/"][url]http://www.tradingmarkets.com/.site/news/Stock%20News/2411487/[/url][/URL]
I haven't heard yet. My guess would be it will run either as an episode of True Life or will air prior to one of the latter Cancun episodes like they did with that Pedro movie, but that is just guessing on my part.

Maybe it will air before the ruins. No matter how "boring" people might of thought Brooklyn was (most the younger generation), they were such unique and different individuals. They could have got drunk and ****ed every episode for all I care, they were just DIFFERENT. It seems as if everybody they have cast anymore are all reincarnations of everybody else, the Brooklyn cast was different, especially Ryan.
[quote=SeanDaniel;104039]I do agree that he is a huge personality and an admirable person, but he is just a person. [/quote] It was reported today that a woman in Wichita has found a mysterious, and possibly miraculous likeness of Ryan Conklin on the top of a corn muffin that she had purchased from a local grocery store. So far the appearance of the muffin has been said to be connected with the improved reception of HDTV at the woman's home and the straightening of an 80 year old neighbor lady's bow legs. Other unusual events are still being investigated. I am on a flight this evening to Wichita to conduct my own evaluation of the situation. I will report my findings as they become known. Ryan just a person? Hah!

Perhaps this muffin was made from corn grown by Chet "Orville Redenbacher" Cannon and Ryan is still just a person and it is the Mighty Mormon Virgin at whose feet you should bow :)

[quote=SeanDaniel;105562]Perhaps this muffin was made from corn grown by Chet "Orville Redenbacher" Cannon and Ryan is still just a person and it is the Mighty Mormon Virgin at whose feet you should bow :)[/quote] With the bow tie and glasses, I acknowledge the resemblance on the surface between Orville Redenbacher (God rest his Hoosier soul) and CC. However the thought makes my stomach churn. The only corn from Indiana (where Redenbacher popcorn comes from) that CC would ever have would be the hard kernels I would throw at him if he ever crossed into our state. Not a fan, not a fan. I could see Ryan, with his nurturing nature and inherent radiant sunshine, being able to grow something successfully, but anything attempted by CC would probably wither or be infested. With his home states being Michigan and Pennsylvania, Big Ten states, Ryan would be right at home (my home?) in our Corn belt. I think a better comparison would be CC and Draco Malfoy, and then Ryan as Harry Potter. So with that, yes CC could make a magical muffin, but it would be the product of the Black Arts.

[quote=XOKittieXO;106229]Huh?[/quote] Indy thinks Conklin is the Second Coming of Christ apparently
[quote=SeanDaniel;106281]Indy thinks Conklin is the Second Coming of Christ apparently[/quote] I would say Ryan is completely original, but if he were the second coming of anyone, it would be James Dean. However, Ryan is of course sexier and more talented. James Dean was the perfect height of 5'8", as is Ryan.

Ooooh good call Indy :D

I guess it is in the eye of the beholder but this image does not lead me to think "James Dean"---maybe Al capone or The Phantom of the Opera.
