The longest season of Survivor is finally coming to an end. I remember sitting in a hotel room doing work in The Iroquois Hotel in NYC back in late March when the potential contestants for this second chance season were leaked. That was pretty much when this season started and now almost nine months later we are less than a day away from finding out who wins.
One week till the finale! A lot to get to since the last episode aired. It’s been a crazy week in the Survivor Universe. From Joe’s rabid fans lighting up social media with hate and even some death threats supposedly. (I didn’t see them, but based off what I read there were definitely some.) Instead of starting with “The End” by The Doors, I probably should have started with “Take It Easy,” or “Why Can’t We Be Friends.” Wes, why don’t you just post those songs as well? Ok, here you go!
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!
Real quick one today, folks. I’ve got class in a couple hours and I’ve been slammed with lots of stuff of late. Another awesome episode of Survivor with probably one of the best of the season airing tonight. Let’s get it on!
Ah the old fashioned oil challenge. Now is a good time to remind everyone that Chelsea and Amanda once partook in this! #NeverForget
