Okay, that was good! I’m really liking the venue this time. Elephants! Hippos! Big red piggies! Funny-looking cows! Crocogators! MONKEYS!
Poor Ken…Nerdy-nerd’s got his dream girl right there, she’s actually paying a LOT of attention to him, and of course they vote her out.
Randy reminds me of my aunt’s husband. In looks and somewhat in personality…that snarky curmudgeon thing.
Bill Nye has really aged since his show ended, hasn’t he?
Gay lawyer is kinda hot…I was worried for a little bit there at TC. Eye candy remains! Yay!
Oh, Charlie. Poor, poor Charlie. I, as a fellow fegelah, recognize what you’re going through. We’ve ALL had straight-boy crushes. I know that feeling like your stomach’s going to turn inside out every time you look at him, especially in a venue where he’s only about 1/4 dressed most of the time. But, Charlie, please listen to me…you DON’T TELL HIM! He’s a straight man…you know that. There’s very little possibility there, even though your gonads are screaming “MAYBE HE’LL LET ME DO SOMETHING EVEN JUST OUT OF PITY!” No, no, no…oh, Charlie, have some dignity!
I kind of like Marcus. He’s really good-looking and has a great body. I think he’s going to ride Charlie’s crush as far as he can take it, as far as having a devoted ally goes. And while that’s slightly scumbaggy…I can’t blame him. He’s not leading Charlie on…he has laid his orientation out there as clearly as he can. He’s not lying to Charlie…Charlie is lying to himself if he thinks there are possibilities. So I can’t get too worked up about it.
Ace. Ace, Ace, Ace…you’re a tool. But you have a great ass. Why do you have to make me so ambivalent?
Gillian reminds me of a certain kind of woman of a certain age that you find concentrated in university towns. They’ve lived in Africa and Australia and sometimes China or India, they’re former Peace Corps, they collect native African folk art, they speak about six languages, only three of which are European. They’re absolutely fascinating to talk to because they’ve DONE so much. But in a game like Survivor, they’re the popped nail. They stand out, and that means they get hammered down quickly.
G.C. seems to me to be reacting to his own insecurities…he’s a maintenance supervisor (read “janitor/handyman”) and he’s thrown in with these doctors and lawyers and high-pressure salespeople. I’d feel kind of out of place, too, I think. If he can hold it together, he should be okay for a while. If he lets the insecurity take hold, he’ll be out soon.
Everyone else is kind of a blank so far. Of the ones I haven’t mentioned, I like Crystal and Matty. Anyone else I just have nowhere near enough exposure to to be able to say anything.
