The Samoans discovered Samoa.


WOW!!  Some fine Samoan boys.  I love the fire dancer.

Jack didn't kick him off the show. Al had other career opportunities he wanted to follow – sport management and marketing, and others. He was the on show for three years, and prior to that he did smaller parts on various episodes, so if Jack didn't want him around, he would not have kept him on as long. There's no evidence surfacing that Jack kicked him off. Zulu was kicked off for not showing up on time and not knowing his lines.

I agree. He must have been a great guy. I never met him but I watched an interview he was in when they were talking about the new Hawaii Five-0. Even though almost everyone else agreed that Jack Lord forced him off the show, I didn't sense any bitterness on his part at all. In fact, he was thankful Jack Lord gave him the opportunity. He was one of my favorite detectives on the show along with Chin Ho and Kono. They made a big mistake dismissing Kono and Ben.

Even after he became a regular on Hawaii Five-O, he continued to perform as a Polynesian dancer.

Book them all Ben, for asking silly questions.

@RuFFNuTTProductionz That's what I meant by Samoans considered him just a tourist. The difference between a discovery and creation is that one existed before and the other didn't. One can discover a civilization unbeknownst to others (as in Samoa), or plant or animal species. So it was a discovery as far as the Dutch or perhaps the rest of the world was concerned. Otherwise no one could claim discovery of anything.

@Gnillob802 The ancestors of Samoans discovered Samoa. Captain Jakob Roggeveen just added it to his map

hahah.. I love this… Too funny when the palagi lady asked "Who discovered the samoan Islands?"… His answer should've been.. THE SAMOANS DISCOVERED IT!….lol

John Smith says:

Is Harrington an old Samoan name? Kitty, no no no. By the way Samoa was discovered by Captain Jacob Roggeveen, who was Dutch. To Samoans he was just another tourist.
