Typically, rhythmic gymnasts have less injuries than other kinds of gymnasts. But as in all other types of gymnastics, if an athlete doesn't stretch out enough and/or properly, it can lead to injuries.
Many international rhythmic gymnasts are on very, verystrict diets. Another reason is like artistic gymnasts they train very hard from a young age which affects puberty and developement of the body. Artistic gymnasts build more solid muscle that gives them a little bit of bulk, while rhythmic gymnasts focus mostly on stretching and dance, so they don't have as much of the muscle mass that an artistic gymnast who trains for high impact skills would have or need. The ideal body for rhythmic gymnastics is slender and a little more long than for artistic gymnastics.The reason why people think rhythmic gymnasts are all skinny is because that is all we see. Tiny twig athletes usually make the best rhythmic gymnasts, but not all are.
Yes. Each year, four out of the five apparatuses (ball,rope,hoop,clubs,ribbon) are selected for rhythmic gymnasts to compete in. These are hand held apparatuses, and are all used on the floor.
Usually people that are Asian, or come from Asia, are double jointed. But still, it's possible to have someone that is not Asian be double jointed?

Yes, much like humans, cats can also be double jointed. However, not all cats are. In general, cats are pretty flexible.

It is possible for someone to be double jointed but others may become double jointed in a car accident. If you want to be more flexible practice every day and you may become better at your flexibility!!
