the fifty fifty doesn't surprise me - the reason is that Lumi and EJami basically ran fifty fifty forever and many of the lumi fans are now ejole fans ... or better yet anti-ejami fans!

Hmmm...I've had the priviledge of attending a few fan events to see James Scott and I'd be very curious to see where he did his 'polling' because that has not been the outcome anywhere that I've seen him. In fact, it has been quite the opposite. The fan reaction of any mention of EJ and Nicole were boos - so much that he even made the comment "Doesn't ANYONE like EJ and Nicole together?" So unless something has changed dramatically in the past couple of months, I just don't understand how he can say it's close. And let's see - in the past couple of months Nicole has suffered a miscarriage but conspired to keep it from him, has completely gone behind his back manipulating everyone she can to secure what she wants, and then proceeded to dump another baby like yesterday's trash so she could steal his daughter with Samantha and present to him as their own. My guess is the EJ/Nicole fan base isn't flourishing under the present writing. It's pretty clear where the story is headed - and all signs point to EJami.
I like both James Scott and Ari Zucker as actors very much - but I just don't care for them as a pairing because in order to pull it off they've taken all the qualities that made EJ such a compelling character and thrown them under the bus at Nicole's hand. He has basically become the Austin to Nicole's Sami which is a tragedy. I hope for both of their sakes they end this train wreck of a story very soon so both actors can move in to a story more worthy of their talents.
I can't get over some of the ejami fans going after James about this article ... there is nothing earth shattering he never said that he preferred Ejole over Ejami.... or that he liked acting with Ari over Ali. He and Ari were both open and honest about the current s/l and how it all got to this place. I think that they are both great actors and that no matter who they are paired with it is their job to try and make it work ... Ali had glowing things to say about Galen. We have all read how much Ali love to work with Bryan. Ari and Ali have said many times how they love to work together. Ari had great things to say about Eric. I personally like it when the actors like each other and give each other praise.
