Survivor Recap Episode
Whoever thought Reality TV would go into reruns? Well, this week it kinda did. Our favorite show was 20 per cent new - 80 per cent old.
It wasn't Survivor. There's no plotting, no backstabbing and no evil scheming. It's one big happy hour with everybody's favorite Outback survivors. The only really big shock is Colby's secret weakness.
The producers seem to spend a lot of time trying to convince us that Jerri isn't pure evil. A clip of the tribe sitting around the campfire while Jerri belts out a tune by Fiona Apple shows her "warm and fuzzy" side. There's also a clip of Jerri and Keith settling their differences - or so it seems.
A deeper look at some of the quieter characters on the show still manages to miss Amber and Nick. They must have Jedi mind powers. "Go on your way cameraman, these aren't the survivors you're looking for..."
Kentucky Joe (Rodger) seems to have more up his sleeve than good natured country smarts. He has a plan. It's all about lying low, playing the 'dirt poor country boy' for a while longer, then coming on strong at the end. The poor guy's gonna have a rough time if any physical challenges come up - but if he makes it to the jury vote, he's golden.
What's Colby's secret weakness? He's a snorer - a loud one. The cowboy was nearly booted the first night cuz he kept everyone up all night sawing logs. Somehow he survived, and now he's in a strong position to win it all.
This is all the stuff you didn't see when you watched the episodes the first time. If you're a hardcore Survivor fanatic, or if you missed a couple of episodes, then it was worth watching. But if you're a casual watcher it was boring.
Bring on next week, it's time for another tribal council - or at least make them eat bugs.
Are you a Survivor nut? Do you think, if you could play, you could win it all? you'd be the ultimate survivor.
