Survivor Episode 2

I am beginning to wonder why they even allow anyone over 40 to play Survivor anymore. Sure Bob won before and Rudy and Pablo were ancient favorites but the only purpose they seem to serve this cycle is to be eliminated early. Strength and youth are useless if you have no brains and become a dick the moment you have to spend one cold night outside. Well they got rid of another 'elder' tonight because Russel knew that the lady cop would smell his B.S. coming from a mile away. It also might be time to rethink the whole individual immunity idol concept if all Russel has to do is look in the only tree in camp and its there. NO ONE noticed he pulled something out of the tree and they were all standing around it. These people are too stupid to win. There is no one to root for but it is only week 2. They are all either selfish and spoiled or quiet and weak. That little spat between big baby Ben and ghetto trash Yasmin was so manufactured just to try to create some drama. Sending her over to the other camp to give them 'advice' was just rattling the cage. I also wasn't entertained one bit by the immunity challenge. These people are your entire show CBS, you need to be concerned for their safety. Put them in faux danger all you like but when a contestant has to go home and another is almost crippled (because we all know boys can't play nice), then you got problems. The races and puzzles are great but the one on one challenges need to be safer or remove them all together. Yasmin is batshit crazy but I agree with her. I don't need to see boys beating up on girls. There is enough of that crap in this world already.

You put into words what i've been thinking about Survivor. Have to root for Russel, he seems to be the Dick Cheney of the show and so evil.
Only thing to look forward to is to see if he gets caught but with this group of bozos i bet he wins.

"Bozos" - that was the word I was looking for. I gotta say I am loving Russel too. The 'burning of the socks' is the single greatest yet single most evil thing ever on that show.

Re. Russell & the immunity idol: I agree. WTF were the producers thinking? And yeah, how come the other tribe members did see him tuck the idol package into his package? Jeez!

As for Yasmin, what a disaster her visit was. Ben is an asshole, PERIOD. And I was sorry to see Betsy go, and even sorrier that that entire tribe seems to be made up of SHEEP. Anyone who can't see that Russell is the serpent in the garden of Eden is also too stupid to win.

I was sorry to see that guy go due to his poor heart, but didn't the producers check him out and give him a physical before they packed him off to Samoa? Usually, for liability purposes, they are pretty diligent about people's health.

I am so sick of seeing guys waddling around in underwear! Why can't they get it together & realize that they need some decent effing shorts on to play this game!

Oops, I meant to say "didn't" in the first paragraph up there!

Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness said...

I totally agree with you about the underwear. Why not have a selection of survival wear that doesn't look like its about to fall apart. Hillbillies in space. I keep thinking of the movie, 'The Island' where the clones all wore those neat tracksuits. Sure they want to 'shipwrecked' look but couldn't the ship have some style to it?

The two new tribes must race through an obstacle course, collecting six wooden snakes along the way. The tribes will collect two snakes at each of three stations. Each tribe must delegate one player to carry all six snakes throughout the entire course. The first tribe to cross the finish line with all their snakes wins the Reward.
