Who watched?

ERIK????? Are you bummed at who got voted off?

I bummed Michelle had to leave so early (but glad to see Gillian go - she wasn't doing anything during challenges and seemed pretty annoying - though a lot of people on that tribe seem annoying), but that tribe is just doomed.....only thing that can save any of those people is switching the tribes up (which I'm sure they'll do). They also should of got ridden of that Randy guy (I think that's his name) instead of Michelle, he has a really bad attitude.

I wish I had Hi-def tv.

haha i figured you would be bummed michelle left. and I agree on that gillian, dead weight.

also I think that lawyer guy is dumb for not going ACROSS the late to find the hidden idol because the clue clearly said ACROSS the lake and he kept digging in totally wrong spots.

Yeah I was laughing that guy couldn't figure that clue out after having said something like he was a smart thinker and no clue could stump him....the laugh is on him. I couldn't believe he was digging IN the lake.....the clue says ACROSS the lake....that just blows me away.

and I've pretty much learned that if you wanna make it past the first couple of tribal councils and not be on the bad side of your tribe....don't have a bad attitude, particpate in the challenges, and don't act bossy.

Isn't it funny how really bossy people are completely oblivious to said bossiness?

Every season some jackass thinks they are in total control of the game, and are subsequently some of the first people voted off.

They're tags or "keywords" that people can add and attach onto threads, so then someone can search by tags if they wanted. You can disable/enable em.

i like to location. i am kind of bummed it's going to be another SUPER DOMINANT TRIBE kicking the crap out of the starving tribe, but even that's entertaining and interesting. Going to be a bummer when they vote the Physics teacher off. He's going to be one of the more original Survivors.

09-26-2008, 04:06 PM
I remember my physics teacher in highschool auditioned and he showed us his audition tape....he was standing in this treehouse that he said he built for his kids, and I'm not kidding, but this tree house was bigger than my current house now. He had one of science classes say the "outwit, outplay, outlast" at the end of the tape....he never got picked though.

I also kinda like one dominant tribe and one weak (though the people on the weak are always screwed then which sucks for them)....but I kinda rooted during season 10 palau when Stephenie ended up being the only member left of her Ulong tribe. It was kinda cool to see that, but I also felt bad for her.

i liked sugar from the get go. im so glad she found that idol and if she is forced to play it early (captncrazy) then i think it will be a smart move because thus far it seems nobody has played the idol when they should have.. I can remember once when someone played it for no reason (flushed out trickery) but better safe than made fun of for not playing it on national tv, and even worse 2 weeks in a row. .man that was brutal.

Jenniehoo
10-09-2008, 08:27 PM
That's a really good point. The idol is almost never used to its full capacity or to someone's advantage. It's almost like a false safety net.

I hate it when people are so smug that they don't use their idol. I'm always on the couch screaming about the stupidity of it. I'd probably use mine the first chance I got to use it.

captncrzy
10-09-2008, 08:30 PM
There was genius the first year that someone figured out they could convince the idol holder to not use the idol and then vote them out. After that, it just got crazy to not use it.

i was ready to be mad if she got voted out first because clearly she wasnt going to use the idol right then. they even made it seem like she was one of the choices..

what will happen now that the only person she told is on the other tribe? any bets? I think he will for SURE tell someone she has it.

ya but she is in exile now. we really dont know what tribe she will be on because nobody chose her. i guess i jumped the gun assuming she would be on the other tribe because i forgot she was last picked (my bad). i missed next weeks clips, did it indicate what tribe she ended up on?

Oh, sorry, didn't realize you didn't see the end. Yeah, Sugar has to go to whatever tribe lost a member. So her and Ace will be back together. That's why they wanted to get rid of that girl that they did, because they were afraid that the three of them would be too strong to beat.

I bet you're right. Trouble is, the really loveble folk are typically lovable due to their own gullibility. That sweetness enables them to pass on their treasures to others in hopes they'll be cared about and loved in the same way they're capable. When really, they'll just get effed in the a.

the one thing going for sugar right now - she's the one and only female with a legitimate story line. I guess a case could be made for Crystal, the most nonathletic olympic champion in history, but not really . I am going to stand by my earlier decision to back Randy.

ShyGuy75
10-22-2008, 07:57 AM
do you love her because she is clueless?

imo, this cast is not very bright. they had the perfect chance to get the idol out of the game, and they passed. gc would have quit later that night anyway.

i can't wait to see sugar fire the neuron in her brain, give the idol away, and get the boot. she is one of the more worthless people they have had on the show in a while.

Ok well 1/2 ain't bad. I'm kinda sad to see Ace go this early, he was far more interesting than Crystal...Crystal is worthless, but I can see why Ace was voted out based on strategy. Crystal will be an easy vote out in the next few rounds because she sucks in challenges and sure won't be winning any immunity idol.

menikmati
11-20-2008, 08:23 PM
I don't know, he acts like he don't. I mean, if I saw that empty hook on a tree after following all the clues, I would come to conclusion that the idol had been taken. He doesn't seem to think so, and Sugar has mentioned nothing to him. He might have an small thought she may have it, but I don't think he's convinced it's been found.

locachica73

The previews from next week show that he knows where the idol is that they threw in the ocean. Maybe he makes another one and tricks that other chick into playing it.

I don't know if he's telling the truth there or not....we'll find out next week I guess....but wouldn't you think of Marcus had kept it, he would of just kept it for himself? Just seems odd to say hey lets throw it in the ocean, but i'll secretly keep it, hide it at camp, and tell someone about it. That just seems dumb....but I guess Bob telling Corrine he can show her where seems to point that it's true.

12-14-2008, 12:26 PM
I have switched allegiance several times this season but I think I'm back to Sugar. She's engineered all the major power shifts. It seemed for a couple weeks it was going to be Kenny but last week just proved that Sugar's got sway on EVERYONE plus the jury was celebrating her move. It's oughtta be a lock.

I'm desperately sad that I can't watch this until tomorrow. Is there anywhere on the internet to watch it live?

menikmati
12-14-2008, 12:42 PM
Yeah Sugar seems like a good pick. I'm not sure if they're doing a final two or three yet, but it seems Suzie, Bob, and Sugar should be the final ones left. Kenny seems like a goner next IF the rest of the group sticks to this "good people should win"....but they may think everyone hates Ken (except Crystal) and think he'd be easy to win when it comes to jury votes...therefore they might vote Matty out instead because of his physical threat, but again, Bob is the one who is winning, so maybe they try to blind side him finally...who knows/??????????????????????????

DON'T READ IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT YET:









I guess I could have just said "spoilers". I'm happy about Bob. I love Bob - how could you not. But he owes Sugar his game. I liked Sugar and I think she made decisions that were potentially manipulative, but made with her heart. She didn't try to bring who she thought she could win against - she tried to bring who she cared about. And that's so valuable (stupid, some would say) - it really makes me respect her character and like her for the entertainment value. Love Sugar.

And to be fair - the people on the jury WERE nasty and I'm glad she was manipulative to get them out. Think about it - Corrinne and Randy are as nasty and mean as they come. Kenny is a sweet kid, but he essentially got called out for being a backstabber and didn't know how to cop to it. It would have been more endearing or understandable if he was like, "fair play, Bob. I was going to screw you," but instead, he kept making it seem like it was everyone else's fault. No sir - you got caught being sneaky. Own it.

I think this is the most disappointing finale ever. Frustrating to have a very good season end like this. Bob was an awful winner, Sugar was the lamest final TC ever, fucking SUZIE got three votes. Oh, and that reunion was by far the most awkward thing I've ever seen.

Good for Bob, but I was REALLY pulling for Suzie :(
I actually like Corrine now and thought she should have stayed longer.

And yes, the reunion show was unusually awkward. A lot of dead air and the audience seemed subdued as opposed to past seasons.

Also, thank God there wasn't a cheesy interlude where we see Jeff walk away onto a helicopter, and then a sky dive, and then roller blade, and then jump off a building, and then dash into the reunion.

I haven't watched recent seasons, so I wasn't sure if they had him do all that :D

Did you get a sense that Randy might have some kindof Aspberger's thing going on?

There was something wrong with him. At first I thought maybe he was more than just bitter - like he was trying to act detached and like he had no sense of humor for pity or something? But I think you're right - it was weird how every time any joke was made or Jeff even commented about him, they'd show his face and he was just deadpan. He either had something wrong with him or he was just really, really pissed.

The preview for next season sucked...they hardly said a word about what to expect or anything. Guess that makes the suspense and anticipation that much more.

I feel bad for the cast members at the reunion who get like 10 seconds of talk time and then everyone forgets them.

I got a weird vibe all season from randy, but I liked him and his game a lot in the beginning and thought he would get even farther than he did. but I've been trying to figure out who the fuck he is for weeks, and then after last night's reunion I got an idea, and did some research. turns out Randy is a very prominent member of one of the biggest survivor boards (Pygmy Island) and has been posting there for years. So yeah, Randy was the internetz representative. I think a good portion of his story was made up.

God that's an awful forum.

I would be filling out my application right now but the damn passport office at the post office closed at 4pm (thought they closed at 5)...so now I'm pissed and am going tomorrow morning instead.

I would love to apply to the show, but I fear my chances are very poor because I fall into one of the categories of people that HAVE to be attractive (20's male.) My only hope would be to try and fall into the Rob C. slot

Menik, if you get actually get onto survivor, promise me that you'll eat your cereal with cream for two months before you go! People get awfully skinny eating coconuts and rice all the time.

menikmati

I would try to gain some weight before I left for sure...in fact, I would get into a routine of eating stuff, then working out part time as well (like pushups, pullups, and some running and swimming)....I would just wanna be in shape by the time I got out there. I'm skinny to begin with so there's no getting around that, but I would try to gain some before going...maybe aim for 150lbs max.

I did apply for my passport today, so I can now provide proof of having one when I send in my application. The guy at the passport office actually commented on my coachella sweatshirt haha.....but now it's onto to filling out the application (lots of questions) and then making the video...hope to have it all done before the 1st.

I would not get voted off at the first tribal council, I promise you that. And don't worry, I have already thought about who I would invite to be at the final taping in LA (assuming I'm on the show of course) and you and other LA boardies/survivor fans get first dibs if you want or at least I would try to save at least 3 spots for you guys.

I don't know what to put for some of these questions yet...what would be the craziest thing I would do for a million bucks? What wouldn't I do for a million bucks? Who would I wanna be stranded with on an deserted island? I'm thinking of just writing 'a girl' in that field.

Haha, I thought about you saying don't say that word to me after I typed it...guess I should of typed board member, but it sounds so formal. I listed my sister down in fullerton as my family member to come visit, but if that don't work out...

I'm thinking about it....it didn't turn quite the way I wanted it, but it's better than most I watched on Youtube for 2 days straight. Maybe I didn't talk about my qualities quite as much as I should or was as loud as I should have been, but I feel pretty good about it. I'll link it up here soon...

Okay I won't keep this up for too long....will be deleted in a day or so...don't want CBS checking out google and finding vids up online before they even pick people or whatever...don't wanna violate the fine print ya know....but I'll put it up for the people who are interested to see it.

Originally I was gonna do a mock thing of Man Vs Wild, and my sister and I endured mud and rain to film all day yesterday, and this morning I totally changed the concept of the video and refilmed about 90% of it at my house.....it turned out okay....not the best and there are some coulda shoulda wouldas, but it'll have to do....hope you enjoy, don't laugh too hard....I don't like watching myself on video haha.

Maybe I'll put up bloopers later...

the expression on your face right after you dropped the food on the floor is brilliant. i'm not really a fan of survivor but after seeing that video, i'd watch the show for sure if they picked you.

i'm gonna follow real talk's example and watch the video again.

Ha ha, thanks guys. I wanted to use the raft somehow in my vid, and my sister was like, just say you made it for your cat....so I was like hey, that's a good idea. Glad to know it seems to work well.

Thanks. I'm sure some do....and I'm sure some just stand in front of the computer.....I've heard of producers picking people from both kind of videos...I guess it depends more on how you come across, as long as you're not boring. Right now I just have to hope for a call back sometime before March.

No, it doesn't say anywhere in the contract that the video can't be shared/uploaded onto sites, but you do sign a waiver which basically says CBS owns the rights to the video and can use it however it wants and you/or anyone who helped shoot the video can't take CBS to court for using your video, since they own it...or something similar to that.

I'm sure in this day and age, CBS has people who scout youtube maybe looking for new contestants, and/or possibly looking for people sharing videos they already sent in and maybe spoiling casting/show secrets....I just don't wanna run into a situation where maybe CBS likes your video, but they see you already shared it and people are talking about it and they get afraid you'll spoil/discuss you making the show with them if you're picked.

These are all just guesses though. There may be no harm in it at all.
