GI Joe or Ken?

There 's a fight brewing. Scott insists that Barbie would choose GI Joe and Kelli says it's gotta be Ken. What do you think? Would Barbie prefer GI Joe or Ken?

GI Joe of course, because that is all my brothers had.  And because they were real men compared to wimpy Ken.

Oh...hands down GI Joe!!!  Us ladies love an adventurous man....Ken....so boring and self-consumed.....

TOTALLY GI JOE! All-American butt-kicker! No pretty surfer dude with a pink cardigan!

Well, a nick name for me is Barbie as I'm sure you know.  I am married to a wonderful man named Joe.  He is retired from the Air Force.  So, you can say Barbie actually married GI Joe in real life.

She definitely chose Ken because Ken had a cool sports car, a boat, a beach house and knew how to dress.  All that GI Joe had was a jeep that would blow Barbie's hair and he didn't dress very well.   LOL!  Smile

G.I. Joe.  I know that's who I'd chose Smile

I had Barbie and Ken when I was a little girl.  My brother got a GI Joe (this was in the 1960s).  Barbie took one look at GI Joe, and Ken was history!!  Trust me - Barbie would pick GI Joe over Ken any day!!!  Sorry, Kelli!

When I was younger my Barbie definately was into Ken....didn't like GI Joe at all.  However, if I were to be playing with Barbie's today, GI Joe would definately win out....

Barbie has always been with Ken. I didnt even know GI Joe was a Barbie

GI Joe, for sure! Ken always looked too perfect and frou-frou. GI Joe had that rugged-thing going for him, not to mention he would certainly keep Barbie safe no matter what.

G.I. Joe, hands down.  Let's face it, Ken was always a 'pretty boy'  all looks, and yet Barbie was the one with all the smart jobs, Ken was just along for the ride.  Why have a pretty do nothing, when you could have a "Real American Hero?" Smile

I agree with Scott... GIJoes are way better for Barbie! Scars look good and girls love them, and GIJoes are way better looking! I stole my brother's and I play GIJoes and Barbies all the time!
12/23/2009 10:25:01 PM
Dan United States
Hate to disagree with you Scott, but Barbie is too high class for G.I. Joe.  She would definitely choose Ken.  He is more of the upper class, tanning and manicure type.
12/23/2009 10:25:10 PM

I would pick a military man over a beach bum any day!  I vote GI Joe!
12/23/2009 10:25:19 PM

Okay, Barbie get to choose between a uniform wearing hero or a sweater wearing preppy boy.  GI Joe would so totally win. Go Joe! Knowingis halfthe battle!  And now you know

This is an old battle. Didn't we already decide last time that Ken was made for Barbie (her soulmate)? The GI Joe I remember is too short for Barbie. Maybe Mattel should create a GI Jane so Joe has his own lady and can leave Barbie and Ken alone.Smile

If I were Barbie I would choose GI Joe...he is much more rugged.  And Ken...well he's too much of a pretty boy.  I want someone who knows how to protect me!

G.I. Joe all the way!! Joe is a rustic man's man, while Ken seems like the kind of man that would have his eyebrows waxed. My Barbie and I would be Mrs. Joe any day!

Brandon United States
Barbie is the end all be all of plastic women and GI Joe is the end all be all of plastic men therefore it only makes sense that Barbie would choose GI Joe over Ken. Ken is just a wanna be and is non existant without Barbie which is why she dumped him in the first place

Barbie will ALWAYS choose Ken, he's the good guy. G.I. Joe is too violent. But, when I was growing up, my 4 sisters and I never had a Ken, we used the "Land Before Time" dinosour puppets that we got from Pizza Hut!

Everyone knows that girls love a man in uniform.  I married one almost 20 years ago.  I love my GI Joe, scars and all.  GI Joe is a tougher and stronger version of Ken and is every bit as handsome.
12/24/2009 3:33:43 AM
Angela United States
Ok I really think that Barbie would totally pick G.I. Joe! He was more muscular and just looked better. He wasn't all preppy looking. PLUS, he was willing to risk his 'life' to defend 'BARBIE-LAND'.
Sorry Kelli, would love to go with you on this,...but if it helps,.. I am sure that G.I. Joe never participated in a doggie wedding either. LOL
(sorry Scott)

I don't know about Barbie, but *I'd* choose GI Joe. Smile In fact, I have... Love my military (US Air Force) husband and am proud of what he does. Smile

If I were Barbie, I would ask the Barbie makers to create a G.I. Ken! G.I. Joe seems a little too macho and could possibly be stinky and dirty due to his occupation. And Ken would probably be a too-tan, stuck up jerk. So maybe a proper combination of the two would make the perfect partner for Ms. Barbie! Your Welcome, Barbie Corporation for the idea.
12/24/2009 3:35:36 AM
Elizabeth United States
Growing up, I played with Barbies all the time. I owned a Ken but ended up abandoning him for my brother's much more muscular, diverse G.I. Joes. Barbie really liked the English paratrooper and the Desert Storm soldier. In the end, my brother's toys kidnapped Ken and grilled him for information and then they all went to Barbie's for dinner.

I guess it would depend on weather Barbie wanted the soft gentle type or the hard core type.  I am in the ilitary and had GI Joes, I did not have any sisters, so I'm not sure what a female would say.
12/24/2009 3:38:35 AM
Laura United States
Oh, my ... GI Joe, of course. Barbie may live in a mansion and drive a Vet but she's got a thing for edgy guys in uniform. Ken is just a little too yuppie for her. Joe has and edge that she likes. Smile

Ken!!!! It has always been Ken and Barbie. They go together like PB&J. G.I. Joe and Barbie doesn't even sound good Smile

G.I. Joe is way better. Ken is so puny! I would deffinetly choose G.I.Joe if I was Barbie. Besides, pull back Kens hair and he looks like a girl!
12/24/2009 3:39:15 AM
ray United States
well i know it usually is Ken i would say that but wouldn't you rather have the strong GI Joe that would protect her rather than the sweater vest wearing Ken

I think you are forgetting about Max Steel. Barbie at our house always choose Max Steel.

Definatly GI Joe.  When I was younger my best friend and I loved to play Black Sheep Squadron (A TV show with Robert Conrad).  No way could a surfer dude survive being attacked by air raid.

Back in the day when I played with my Barbies I would have voted for Ken but today, many years later, I think she would go with G. I. Joe all the way. I live near Travis Air Force Base and have total respect for our military. Gotta love those girls and guys!!!

Althouth I personally would choose GI Joe, Barbie was a materialistic Diva who loved expensive things...clothes, cars, a mansion, etc.  I would say that Ken would be able to satisfy her more than GI Joe.

Ken! My Barbies never enen wanted GI Joe. They still don't. My dad was in the air force and was off quite a bit, so my Barbies don't want that.

I say Ken.
G.I.Joe might have the uniform but Ken was a preppy kind of a guy and Barbie is preppy too.

So I say Ken.

P.S. how tall is Kelli?
Keep up the good work.

Angella United States
Okay, sorry to burst both Ken's and GI Joe's bubbles, but at my house, it was always The Lone Ranger or Tonto that sparked Barbie's interest. She usually went for Tonto though. I think the mask was the downfall for the Lone Ranger. He was never real enough with Barbie!

I am kenny's bro Abraham. I think we should take in mind Wierd Al's song "Ugly Girl". maybe the true barbie is extremely unappealing to both ken and GI Joe, and both would not even go out with her
12/24/2009 3:47:10 AM
Amanda United States
Shouldn't the real question be: Would GI Joe want Barbie?  I think that Barbie and Ken are perfect together.  Barbie is too high maintenance for GI Joe.  I'm under the impression GI Joe does not enjoy pink Smile
12/24/2009 3:48:17 AM
Katie United States
Well, I would like to think that it would be Ken but according to the news two years ago they split....so it could be GI Joe, buzz, woody or even mr.potatoe head!!!lolSmile

On Feb. 12, Mattel (MAT ) announced that Barbie -- the world's most famous doll -- and Ken, her companion of 43 years, were splitting up. Oh, many euphemisms were used: "They had grown apart." "Needed some time alone." "Were going their separate ways." "They would remain friends." The ironic timing of the announcement –- just 48 hours before Valentine's Day –-

Any WOMAN would choose a HERO over EYE-CANDY in a heartbeat!!  A girl might think eye-candy contains a hero, it may or may not.  Plus - G.I. Joe has WAAAAY cooler gear (Ken, that means "accessories!").  ,O)
12/24/2009 3:51:04 AM
Pamela United States
you have to remember barbie is a material girl and they always go after the money that is why Ken was made to be rich,so Barbie will have all the things she wanted and G.I. Joe I don't think he would put up with that.
12/24/2009 3:51:23 AM

Barbie would choose the one she loved. Besides, Ken is going to do the patriotic thing and enlist anyway, right?

She had no choice when Ken came out.  That was an arranged deal.  IF she could choose, it would be GI Joe...  Remember Tonio K - Romeo loves Jane!

i've heard of unfaithful lovers but this is outrageous
soon the national enquirer will run the front pages
i saw shakespeare and cheetah
crying in their margaritas
bad news

romeo loves jane
the jungle will never be the same
and juliet's crying again
romeo loves jane

now in a wold full of hurt how can anybody blame them
and in the heat of wild love how can anybody tame them
they have fallen east of eden now

good love gone bad
bad love gone wild
wild love gone mad
mad love out of control

I vote for GI Joe. When I was young, I always took my Barbie across the strett to a boy who had a GI Joe doll. I'd ask, "can GI Joe come out to play?"

The Barbie I played with was no contest Ken.  She only chose GI Joe when there weren't enough Ken dolls to go around.  If it were today - it would probably be GI Joe.

I am totally going for gi Joe my husband is an Air Force EOD tech and is 6'8" and I'm 5'3" that's 17". So although the origional GI Joe was taller than Barbie, I totally think she would pick him over Ken.

GI Joe!!! - Sorry, Kelli, but it is definetly GI Joe.  Ken in my house couldn't get his clothes dirty or go outside and play!!! GI Joe can and does!!!

Marie United States
After going back and fourth with it I think I would choose GI Joe, I tend to like the rough and rugged type and there is nothing more attractive than a man in uniform! BUT Barbie seems to be more of the Ken type (a pretty boy).  When I was young I had a Ken but that's all I knew, GI Joe was more of a boys toy ...my brother's didn't play with ANY kind of doll...GI Joe or not.

I used to play G.I. Joes and Barbies with my brothers and sisters and well Barbie would always prefer G.I. Joe,(the good guy), over Ken,(the bad guy).  Ken would always get his butt Kicked, or more litterally his head kicked off!  So in My opinion G.I. Joe wins the dispute. Even my sisters agree.  Anyway, Ken's gender is still rather undecided/unknown.

Ok so I myself am in the Army and I am 17. So I kno that she would totally choose GI Joe for a number of reasons a he has a secured job b great health insurence c great pay d will always fight for her e great housing on a base with food and housing covered... I could go on and on...

GI Joe definately.  Take a look at my FB page, go to photos, go to the last albumn and check out my GI Joe collection, and that is why Barbie would choose Joe, he so much more versatile.

Another thing also, and by the way, this Kenny, not my brother, but anyway, Ken is girly, and if Barbie was ever in trouble, Ken would run away screaming at the top of his lungs while GI Joe comes swooping in to rescue Barbie. Sorry Kelli, but GI Joe would totally win. You rock Scott! LOL:-P

If Barbie were a typical female she would most likely prefer a soldier to a girlyman. What girl wouldn't prefer muscle to long hair. My sisters' Barbies would always pick G.I. Joe to that pathetic boy they call Ken. Wrestling matches always went one way. Once again Scott is right.

GI Joe all the way - not a pansy, able to keep his lady out of harm's way, and she wouldn't need to be afraid of anything around him

Ken... he would settle down, have a good paying job and not be running off and volunteering to be away from home for a year at a time defending the country.

I work at the Children's Museum of Indianapolis, and we have a Barbie exhibit.  It shows Barbie with lots of boyfriends...not just Ken!!  And the word on the streets is...she has a crush on Edward Cullen.  So, apparently she doesn't like her men to manly...I'm going with Ken.  haha

I must say, i didn't know about GI Joe at the time, as i am the oldest, but i have vivid memories of my one and only Ken doll's head being disconnected, i don't remember how it happened....could it have been Barbie...??? well prolly not, but i thought it worth writing yall about.....we never could fix Ken's head, and about that time, GI's started showing up, cuz my brothers were old enough for them (they had these cool medical kits.....:})

In today's world Barbie may choose GI Joe, but in the 60's and 70's Barbie would have chosen Ken. Different time ~ different values. Barbie has always gone with the trends of the times.

Ken!  Given the era that Barbie came out, she became most popular in the 1960's and I would say Ken was her choice because of the era.  In addition, GI JOE was not her only other option, Alan showed up on the scene as Ken's best friend shortly after Midge showed up as Barbie's best friend.  And besides that, Ken aspired to be a doctor, not a soldier.

My barbie choose Ken because my brother & GI Joe would only play occasionally with barbie and me and so Ken was more available.  But when the Six million dollar man became a doll then Barbie chose him hands down.

I have to say Ken, she is too preppy for GI Joe.  yes, Joe could protect her better but she looks so much better on Ken's arm.

Jeannie United States
Well personally I would choose GI Joe but since you are asking about Barbie I think she would choose Ken. Everyone knows Barbie is high maintenance. She likes lots of nice clothes, a garage full of cars and it's obivious she has to have platic surgery..c'mon, nobody looks like that naturally! So secretly in heart she may long for the more manly GI Joe but, to keep her in the style she is accustomed to, she will need to choose Ken.

I would pick GI Joe.  And I am a Barbie!  I want a man that will take care of me,  be able to get dirty and fix things.  Ken strikes me as the kind of guy that would call someone else for help because he would not want to get his manicured hands dirty.  Not macho enough!

Scott and Kelli,
I heard the debate on my way home.  Well, it just so happens that my husband still has two of his GI Joe dolls from when he was a boy.  I have taken a picture how can I send to you.

The old Barbie, she was like June Cleaver, so she would have chosen Ken.  He was safe and had plastic hair that was painted on.  She might have had secret meetings with GI Joe, but not in public.

The new Barbie, she is more adventuresome and would have chosen GI Joe.

FYI - GI Joe is 11 inches tall.
12/24/2009 4:24:06 AM

Definitely G.I Joe. I mean who wouldn't go for a guy totally ripped. Compared to the wimpy Ken. =)

Ken Edghill United States
Ken Edghill
The answers are great EXCEPT the question is not who would you or women pick between GI Joe or Ken BUT who would BARBIE choose.  When considering the character of Barbie, it would appear that Barbie would choose Ken.  Barbie over the years has projected an image that is about status, high society, and a life style of above average wealth. GI Joe may be more of a "man", better looking, more versatile, and be more of a choice for the average woman, however, Barbie would have chosen someone who could fit the image of her lifestyle rather than the "manly" man who could beat up Ken!

Just my thoughts based on the question of who would BARBIE choose and not who would WOMEN choose.

It's GI Joe all the way.  There is just something about a man in uniform and If my car broke down he would more than likely know how to fix itt.  I love to see a man in action not one of these that uses  the telephone and his wallet to solve all the problems that come up daily.  Plus I have a son that is in the Army over in Iraq and beleive me I'm very proud of him.

I don't know about Barbie, but her friend Teresa is TOTALLY into the tall, dark, muscular and mysterious... and Ken doesn't really add up, plus he's taken, so let's give Teresa a shot at the big & burly G.I. Joe, Barbie doesn't deserve him anyway.
12/24/2009 4:30:34 AM
Delana United States
Who would Barbie choose? Ken or GI Joe?
Depends...if she wanted someone to go with her for a manicure and wax and a day of shopping, she'd choose Ken. If she wanted a man to protect, provide, and care for her, she'd choose GI Joe. Ken was her gay best friend, even if he is way to co-dependent. Joe was the man who'd sweep her off her feet and she'd marry! GO JOE! If Joe breaks Barbie's heart, she'll call Ken to come over for ice cream and pedicures!

Well Barbie has always been High Maitanence and so is Ken.  GI Joe is way to studly to deal with High Mait. my guess is he would date Barbie's girlfreind PJ.  Plus GI Joe would want to go on outdoor dates like camping and unless it's the supper Barbie RV there's no way she'd make it.  She needs a hotel with a spa not a weekend of playing warrior.
12/24/2009 4:35:20 AM

Barbie is her own perfect match!!! When me and my sister were little we could not have kens because of pretend boy parts so we just shaved barbie and made her a boy so you see she is her own perfect match.

No doubt, its Ken, sorry Scott. Smile

My friend says Ken is a good gay shopping buddy, but she prefers the scared, rugged, tattooed, tough guy that makes her feel safe. And she has a alot of respect for a guy that serves(ed) his country.
Me? Id just say Ken is a whoose and GI Joe would totally take Barbie away from him cause hes more worried about getting his sweater dirty then protecting his lady. Plus his blood looks good on the cammies Smile LOL

Of course G.I. Joe. I mean he survived a fall out the window that cost him his arms, head, and a chest cut in 2. Also a toss out of the pool that cot another guy his head.

I think that since they have Beach Barbie & Nurse Barbie, Cowgirl Barbie, then the may just have different Ken styles as well. I am sure he has some Military fatigues some place, So he can be what ever Barbie wants him to be. As she is forever changing so is Ken. So I have to say Ken is the man that Barbie would choose.
12/24/2009 4:55:03 AM
My Barbies would always prefer a manly guy like G.I. Joe. My brothers are right Ken's head could be punched off.  Ken would take Barbie hostage and G.I. Joe would save her and Ken would go to jail.  
12/24/2009 4:57:41 AM
Barbie would chose G.I. Joe, G.I. Joe would chose Barbie.  The real question is: If given the opportunity would Ken chose G.I. Joe or Barbie?

She had not made any friends yet and didn't know who she would invite.  I told her she could invite anyone.  She said she wanted the Marines that worked under her dad.  So her comes these big tough Marines.  One by one the ended up in her room to play Barbie's with her.  So I guess GI Joe would have to be the answer.  Do you think he might have been a Marine????

I was the last girl of our group to have a G.I. Joe. The wedding was great. My mom had a tea party of about 10 kids (boys and girls) and more than 20 Barbies,only 5 Kens, and 15 or so G.I Joes.

It would definitely have to be G.I. Joe.  I'm not very educated on the subject, but I don't think that Ken has a day job.  I think that all he does is sit around.  On the other hand, G.I. Joe has a day job working for the military, no matter which branch it is.  G.I. Joe just has much more to offer to Barbi then Ken does.

Barbie is an A personality.  GI Joe is an A personality.  Let's face it, with Barbie and all her business adventures (teacher, Vet, Doctor, she has her own airline service, shopping mall etc.)  She needs someone to support her and GI Joe is out saving the world, he can't give her the time.  So, it has to be Ken.  I can only remember him as the airline pilot.

I would have to say GI Joe or maybe nobody.  Barbie is a very successful woman in any role she takes on, did you ever notice that Ken is just there, he never has any career or car (only extra outfits are a tux to take Barbie out with), hes just Ken living off of Barbie.  At least GI Joe has a goal in his lifeSmile You go girl!!!!!

Well lets think about this... Barbie is a major prep... Ken is a preppy boy. They fit together. What preppy girl would want to be with a get down and dirty kind of guy. She would have nothing in common with him. Ken is much more suited to her then GI Joe is. Ken could understand her passion for shopping and I wouldn't hesitate to say he might just enjoy it.

So I always thought Barbie and Ken.  But recently it was brought to my attention that the makers of Barbie intended Ken to be Barbie's brother which would make me lean more towards G.I. Joe.  But growing up in my house it was always the little lego men that picked up my Barbie on her dates. Smile

Well honestly Barbie already picked Ken when they came out with wedding barbie and ken . so regardless what anyone sais she already chose. Even though gi joe is the more logical choice because he has a career for life so...

G.I. Joe for sure! GI Joe is a real American hero, and Ken is just some guy who is dating a doll?

GI Joe for sure - Barbie could get him to shave I'm sure.

I'm 10 years old and i love to play with Barbies and so do almost all my friends! almost all of them have a ken doll none of the have a GI Joe doll only boys have GI Joe dolls and boys don't have barbies! What little girl would you see with a GI Joe doll! All of them have ken! So obviously Ken! Barbie would be miserable with GI Joe cause Barbie needs a family man not some big buff guy! It just would not be right! Smile    (good luck Kelly) GO KEN!!! Smile LOL!!! Smile Smile Smile

The reason being that Barbie deserves a wimp like ken and not a buff nice guy like GI Joe!

Ken and Barbie or G.I. Joe and Barbie. #1 if i were either of those fellows I would not even look at Barbie as , on a scale of 1-10 she rates about 4. #2 If I were Barbie, I would choose Ken as he has a 9-5 job and will be home every night. G.I. Joe would constantly be deployed, to the point you could tell when he came home by the birthdays of his children.

Barbie would chose Ken because Ken has a good paying job that keeps him home. Joe is just Ken's budy who comes over from time to time. Barbie actually has a hard time with Joe because he gets Ken to drinking, and when he goes on with those war stories it always turns into a late night. Yup, Barbie would choose Ken for sure!

Ken. Barbie is fake, and would go for someone fake. Ken is too good to be true and that's why they would be perfect for each other.

OKAY...My husband and I were in the car on the way back from working on one of K-Love's radio stations (he is a contract engineer for K-Love) and we were tickled over this discussion....

What people forget is Ken went through a makeover and even had hair at one time not the plastic head...and had that rugged outdoors look...another point is...well it seems that Ken was in every branch of the military...lol so if everyone is picking GI Joe for that reason time to find another reason because in all fairness to Ken (erm and Kelli) Barbie wouldnt have an excuse not to pick Ken...lol!!!!

I think Barbie would pick GI Joe, because she already dated Ken, so the relationship is over.

hello K-Love, My hubby and I would have to say GI Joe . Only because to me he is my GI Joe and well i like to be pampered. My Husband was also a millitary man and i like the macho look he has. And well me, I am very like Barbie. K-Love we love you and always listen to yall guys . God bless you all . with love the Guerrero Family.

I would vote for GI Joe.  When I was younger, I always went in and took my brother's GI Joe doll to go out on dates with Barbie.  He was more down to earth and manly looking.  He was my country man.  Ken is too pretty.

There is no way that Barbie would choose GI Joe.  Can you imagine Barbie going camping with him?  He'd be throwing his stuff in a backpack along with his tent and hunting knives...no food, cuz he would eat what he hunts or catches.  Barbie would be filling the drawers in her "travel bus", aka RV, with all her make up, shoes, hair jewels, fake finger nails, short shorts, etc.  The whole point is that Barbie is too girlie for GI Joe.  Maybe Barbie would pick him, but there's no way GI Joe would pick Barbie!  That's my comment and I'm stickin' to it!

Ken is a dork, Barbie doesn't like dorks. G.I. Joe is a manly man, he has a job, muscles, and a gun. Ken has a goofy smile, is shorter then Barbie, and gets beat up by G.I. Joe all the time. Tell me Kelli, would you rather go for a wimpy guy who gets beat up all the time, or a guy who can keep a job and defend himself?

I'm not too sure. But if barbie wanted a man that would throw wedding parties for his dog then she would go with ken but if she wanted a MAN she would definitely go with G.I. Joe.

Totally, GI Joe!!  Can't beat a man in uniform!!!  But with Barbie being the "diva" that she is, she would pick Ken..  He is preppy enough to take care of her..

1)Matt: your "Military = Kill" is too simplistic. I hope you thought it thru better in your head. You're not speaking German are you? Freedom has a price.
2) Ken is actually Barbie's brother. The names came from the doll creator's two kids.
3) 'G.I. Joe' is a name for anyone in any branch of the military ... "General Issue" Joe
(BTW, Barb loves Sailors)

I would think she would choose GI Joe. Why because it is perceived that Ken hasn't experienced hardship or "real world" issues. Where GI Joe has the book of James at his side with the Trials and Tribulations and is Running The Good Race. So if I were Barbie I would want someone that has experienced all the hardships and trials so that when I am in need, I need support from experience to keep me on the right path. Isn't a marriage a partnership Smile

I think that Barbie would be attracted to G.I. Joe because he is rugged and dangerous, but she would choose Ken because he is a loyal, gentle, loving family man who would be completely committed to her. He would make Barbie and the Lord the center of his world.

i think it depends upon the situation. my barbie was a hand-me-down from the late 70s or early 80s and my ken was from like 1990 so barbie was too old for ken... only because he didn't dig cougars... but his leg fell off so barbie didn't really dig him anyway. and my g.i. joes were too old for barbie so they were always the dad and uncle. in the end, though, barbie always gravitated toward my m.c. hammer doll. so, i don't think i'm qualified to answer this question.  Smile

I really do believe that Devine guidance is needed here. We all know and acknowledge that the Lord is the "originator" of all creation. We also know that upon our committment to our partners in marriage and included in the ceremony wording, we say, "what God has brought together, let no man put asunder". Realizing these truths and His almighty wisdom, is there really any question? The Lord made Ken and Barbie for each other!!!!! THE END !!!

I would have to say GI Joe.  Yeah Ken had cool sports cars, good tan, dressed well, but.   I know GI Joe's who drive some really fine sports cars.  Have you seen a Marine in his dress blues.  As far as the tan goes, well that only leads to skin cancer.  GI Joe is the only pick for Barbie.

I think Barbie would like the "idea" of G.I. Joe, but not actually stick it out in the long haul with him. Also, G.I. Joe would reject Barbie. He already has the likes of Scarlet and Lady Jaye who kick butt and are much better suited for him.

It looks like more women than men have responded so how about a man's viewpoint. As a man who has worn a military uniform for almost 30 years I can tell you that a uniform attracts a lot of attention from the ladies. So unless Barbie is a pacifist or shallow and cares more aboput material things than who a person is GI Joe would win over Ken about 90% of the time.
