    I wonder why JR Marinez has apparently not been offered an acting job or been given a hosting job in TV? Usually stars who become that popular on DWTS, especially winning, are hired for something. Riki Lake was given a talk show, and I would bet JR has way more fans interested in him than Ricki does.

    I just wonder if there is an unspoken prejudice against JR because of the scars? As nice as they act in public, is the entertainment industry still operating under some idea that the public wouldn't like to see JR every week or every day on TV????? If they think that, they are wrong. JR has charisma and he's the hero type our country needs right now.

    JR has overcome what most would have not tried and become discouraged. I am proud of you for so many things: serving our country, fighting to return to a normal life enduring 33 surgeries, and showing our country there are much worse things than what people complain about on a daily basis. People need to realize that it's not what you see on the outside but rather on the inside that make you the person you become. Keep living your dream. My dream will be to meet you some day!
