I think we are all in agreeance that this season has been awesome. One of the many things I’m thankful for this year. Can you imagine if this season had been a let down? What would have had to occur? Stephen, Spencer and Kelley as the first three out with a final three of Vytas, Monica and Woo? Ugh, I can’t even think about that.
I’m sitting here in Newton, Massachusetts on Wednesday morning getting ready to head back to Seattle after a great ten day visit home. Lot of great family and friend gatherings took place, but I’m ready to get back to the grind and also to talk Survivor! (When I just typed Survivor out, I instinctively put a # in front of it.#TwitterProblems)
Everyone ready for the blandest meal of the year tomorrow? Before I get into that, we have some Survivor to talk about! Coming up we’ve got thoughts from last week’s episode, happenings this week, a special Survivor Turkey award and some other randoms stuff at the end. And away we go…
Keith Nale has now played Survivor for 63 days.
Starting to get back in the swing of things of late. My first couple blogs I thought were average at best, BUT I think I’m finally starting to cook with gas. I also figured out what I’m going to call this, The Last Minute Survivor Blog, or LMSB for short. I think it works! On to thoughts from last week’s show, happenings this week and some random stuff at the end. Here we go!
I enjoyed Savage back when he played in Pearl Islands, but this time I didn’t. He came off as a braggart and his reliance or desire to play the “old school” way I thought was silly. Plus he came of as arrogant. Maybe it was the edit, or maybe not. I did enjoy the struggle and despair he went through at Angkor. (I’ll say this though, if I was out there I’d probably act like an asshole too. 20 days with no bed, toothpaste, crap food and even crappier people would really test me and make me talk tons of shit.)

This has been a great season so far. Why? Because it’s been unpredictable, which to me is one of the best elements of a successful Survivor season. It seems like the majority alliance changes every three days and that anyone can go home at any vote. There are also no clear “villains” or “heroes’ which I think tend to be relied on in weaker cast seasons. Also, more importantly, there haven’t been any over the top controversies that have plagued at least one recent season. Alright, on to the last episode before some random stuff at the end!
Alright, the 5th contestant has been voted out, Monica, we hardly knew ya! Did she really play Survivor twice???
I kind of agree with Monica’s reasoning for rationing the clams in the bay, but it’s Survivor and anything can happen. Eating what you have as soon as possible is probably the best route to take. Plus, why start up a potential argument with Kimmi?
I’ll just leave this tweet here:
How’s everyone doing! Good? Glad to hear! Ok, on to some thoughts I had from last week’s episode of Survivor and some random Wes stuff at the end for your enjoyment.
Seeing the Angkor five struggle and based on what Tasha said, “we haven’t really eaten in four days,” is a great reminder that Survivor isn’t a walk in the park like all the other reality competitions. Also, for all the purists, this is classic Survivor to see contestants struggle through the conditions with barely nothing. So, I don’t want to hear anything about the producers helping them out!
Really didn’t think I’d get a blog in this week. Still a little woozy from my Vegas trip this last weekend, (More about that at the end) but, I’m sticking to this and doing one for every single episode. Tall order for sure, but I’m really enjoying this season, so why not write about it!
The season has been awesome thus far and has lived up to the billing. Each episode has delivered, although this last one was probably the weakest of the three.
