SURVIVOR: BLOOD VS WATER 2 – 11/19/14

Hey guys! We’re already at episode 9 and I still have no idea who’s going to the finale. There’s usually a front runner by now, but something tells me this is not going to be one of those seasons that plays by the book. And considering all the criticism it’s getting – which I don’t totally agree with – I’ve decided to just keep an open mind on how the rest of the season will play out. As long as Jeremy wins because he’s the only one who deserves it…

But first, I want to go back and review the odds I gave at the beginning of the season, just to see how accurate I was. I know this may be a bit self-indulgent on my part – a theme in tonight’s episode – but I need a shot in the arm right now. They’re listed in descending order from favorite to least favorite:

Missy 9/2 Jon 5/1 Jaclyn 8/1 Alec 8/1 Kelley 8/1 Jeremy 10/1 Wes 10/1 Baylor 10/1 Josh 101 Reed 11/1 Val … Continue reading

SURVIVOR: BLOOD VS WATER 2 – 11/12/14

Looks like there’s a battle of the sexes tonight, as all preview videos indicate the cavemen are going to start ordering the cavewomen around. Not sure considering the current state of the nation if that plan will go down smoothly, but with Survivor being a single Petri dish in a broader experiment, maybe that kind of thing will fly.

The preview video I saw showed Missy telling Baylor to just “shut up and take it,” which is either:

A: bad parenting B: questionable advice from someone who’s been thrice divorced C: good reality show advice

I think the verdict is still out one this one, but let’s see where things stand in 56 minutes of show time…

But before we get started, I wanted to run something by you. In the interest of trying to do SOMETHING DIFFERENT than every other blogger out there, I was thinking about pulling together some questions to ask a former player. I’ve gotten enough interest/looks/tweets from a few ex-players so I hope to be able to get responses from … Continue reading

SURVIVOR: BLOOD VS WATER – 11/5/14

Merge! Merge! Merge!

For some reason I’m picturing Katniss Everdeen standing in front of the tribe raising her 3-finger salute at the tribes. Suddenly, helicopters can be heard in the distance. Confusion turns to chaos as everyone looks up to see a group of ex-players rappelling down and landing on the beach. They start attacking the “Hunapoyans” with a variety of sticks, logs and coconuts. They are led by Coach, who can be heard about the fray…

“Think like a man of action, act like a man of thought,” he says as he stabs Keith with the dull end of a bamboo pole.

“In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity,” as he throws a spear at Jon…

“It is better to be feared than loved, if you cannot be both!” as he hacks at Josh and Reed with a machete…

Other players like Russell, Boston Rob, Tyson, Parvati, Colby, Rupert, Jerri, Malcolm, Brenda and Skupin are part of the carnage. Corinne’s even there, throwing flaming coconuts at Julie whilst holding a cocktail, not … Continue reading
