I’m glad Colby flipped on Jerri. She’s had it coming for a while. True, it would have been better two weeks ago, so that she couldn’t get on the jury, but it’s an imperfect world. At least Jerri will only be getting a mediocre fee for her participation.
(Every contestant gets a steadily escalating fee, depending on how long they last in the game. For example, using the last Survivor game as a guide, the 4th-place winner gets $75,000, and Jerri will probably just get a few thousand.)
Colby might be a hero. Bringing back bits of coral was a genius stroke.
It sent a chill down my spine when Colby threw Jerri over the barricade, so that she landed (with a thud) flat on her back, and didn’t even say “Sorry” or offer to help her up, but just grunted, “C’mon.”
It must have really hurt when Jerri landed like that. It could have given her back problems that could last a lifetime. I hate Jerri, but I don’t want to see her crippled. This “tough” chick would have been all over anybody else who treated like that, but unfortunately she has a blind spot when it comes to Colby. (Much like other women who act “tough” but turn into doormats for their lovers.)
People say Michael creeped them out, but now it’s Colby who creeps me out. Does he treat other women like that?
What do you think? Is Colby a more dangerously insensitive lout than Michael? (Actually, Michael wasn’t such a bad guy to other humans.)
By the way, I am now enjoying this edition of Survivor more than the original. I totally hated it in the beginning, because I couldn’t stand all those whining, catty, bitchy people like Mitchell and Jeff, and of course I was appalled at what happened to Kel. (What Hollywood producer would give a job to someone who goes through other people’s bags??)
But ever since Episode 4, it’s been GREAT!!!
Here are my favorite, standout, first-rate episodes:
Episode 4: Keith organizes a coup against the wannabe actress/bartender. Mitchell practically asks to be voted off. Michael kills a pig.
Episode 5: Kimmi fights with Alicia and washes her boobies. Alas, she is gone before her birthday, which she would have celebrated Richard Hatch-style.
Episode 6: Michael gets burned and the game turns serious. Mucho drama.
Episode 7: Underdog Ogakor pulls off a coup! It’s a whole new game! People groan or grin in 10,000 betting pools!
Episode 9: DING DONG, THE…well, you know the rest.
My least favorite episode was the second. Too much bitchiness, all around. Bitching about Michael getting up early to cook breakfast for everyone. Bitching about Michael making himself look too good by catching fish. Bitching about Keith’s rice. And, of course, the beef jerky thing made me see red. I was ready to give up on the show at that point.
If anyone saved the show for me, it was Keith and his adroit maneuver in Episode 4. That’s when the show became much less predictable, and it satisfied my sense of justice, too! Keith deserves to win just for that.
And to top it all off: this time it’s the “bad guys” being picked off one by one! Yay!
(Didn’t Amber look cute in that logrolling challenge, smiling and thrusting her hips back and forth, back and forth??)
