As you'd expect, the article was fluffy and shallow. At least there were a few non-Caucasians included. (It being a new millennium and all.)
So I checked out the bio on the lone Asian-American dude. That's when the strangeness of reality unveiled itself.

Andrew Hsu: 2010 Chicago Single
Think about this for a minute. Andrew is a "resident physician in orthopedic surgery at Rush University Medical Center and part-time model." A surgeon and a model. Srsly?
I can't testify as to his medical credentials. But take a look at this.
I'd say he's got the necessary credentials for modeling, wouldn't you?
Note I saw this article the day after I put up the Ken and Donny fanfic. I would have been almost embarrassed to describe one of them as a frickin' surgeon by day and male model by night.
OK, I wouldn't. But it's still kinda over the top.
I hereby decree that, henceforth, an Asian Marty or Gary Stu will be known as an Andy Hsu.
* If you are single and eligible, and would like to contact Andrew, Chicago mag thoughtfully
If anything comes of this, no need to invite me to the wedding. I do request, however, that you name one of the kids after me.
