  1. S37.E04 Time to Bring Out the Charmpocalypse

    May I suggest a slight improvement on, "Nobody roots for Goliath"? Care to take a guess what it might be?

    I wonder if people completely ignored Natalie when she ordered them to do something. How many times would they have to do that before she stopped ordering them? Or would she lose her mind? There is an interesting news story on most of the major news organizations today about some man who played an unwelcome game of "footsie" with a female passanger. When a Flight Attendant spoke to him about hit, he lost his mind and freaked out. The Flight Attendant described it like this. "He went from zero to 60 in a split second." Do you think Natalie might react like that?

    I think you made some very good points there. Thanks for sharing your POV. I will give it some thought. (but not too much thought) :)

    I'm finding it bizarre how so many of these people seem to have grabbed ahold of Jeff's description of "Davids" and "Goliaths". In a way, they remind me of cult members. I've heard several of these people say things like, "Well, I'm a David and ... when you're a David, you have to go the extra mile. You have to ...". They talk as if being a "David" is something real instead of something that was just made up by Probst or one of his minions. Strangely, I don't recall hearing many people refer to themselves as "Goliaths", although some of them have called other people "Goliaths". Very bizarre. It's not just that it's confusing to think of someone as a "David", but I find it insulting that anyone would decide they could sum up a person's entire character and personality by calling them a single word - a "David". If I was a contestant, I know that I would not be happy about that. I'm sure that I'd be fairly angry that anyone would characterize me by a single word - let alone a name. What happened to the idea that name-calling is not cool? Even worse, I can't believe these people seem perfectly willing to go along with Jeff and call themselves by whatever name he has assigned to the tribes. Why, you ask? Well consider that I am a Boogaloo and when you're a Boogaloo, you're a Boogaloo all the way. (remind you of West Side Story?) It's Boogaloo for life. Boogaloo through and through. Doesn't that sound stupid? It sounds incredibly stupid to me. David is just a softer name than "Boogaloo". OK. Now trying to revert to a serious discussion, if I was a contestant and Jeff tried to pull this shit in a public conversation with me, I think I'd begin to tell him, "Well, Jeff, I appreciate you characterizing me as a "David". But lemme tell you something. I actually tend to think of myself as a "Jeff". Even more than just a "Jeff", I prefer to think of myself as a "Probst". You see, I was going along in my hum drum life when all of a sudden - out of the blue - I got this tremendous stroke of great fortune and found myself on this island with an opportunity to make a whole pile of money and ... " I would then continue in the most insulting way I could ... denigrating Jeff by comparing him to someone who wins a lottery or comes into sudden wealth and then loses it all and then loses his mind. I would continue until he either shut up or forced me to shut up. Admittedly, it's far more likely that I would be the one doing the shutting up. But I hope that I do have a point. I just can't understand how this man can take over a national TV show and then use it for the most extreme example of self-aggrandizement I've ever seen. You may well say that I'm just jealous of Jeff. Jealous of his sudden wealth and fame and you would be correct, of course. But the thing that really bothers me is how he seems to use his wealth and fame to essentially wander around crying out, "Look at me! Look at me! Ain't I something? Ain't Survivor wonderful?" To be sure, I could be all wet about Jeff. Or maybe I just don't understand him. But it just seems to be ... that he is using all of his wealth and fame to compensate for everything that he failed to get during his childhood and that has damaged him somehow. I think he is a fascinating case in human psychology and that he somehow took a sudden turn into a very strange dimension. If Rod Serling was still alive today, I think he would be having a whale of a time with Jeff. OK. I want to apologize to all of the fans of this show who love Jeff and are unhappy with my comments about him. I appreciate you have every right to your opinion about Jeff and that you are really enjoying the show - especially this season. Well, me too! It is a great season. Ain't it? One of the best ever. I just hope you will understand that Jeff really bothers me and I just don't understand why he bothers me as much as he does.

    I don't know that it's accurate to say that most of us hate HIIs. But I've always been surprised at the great frequency with which people have used those idols and that they do not fail the player most times they are played. I would have expected that most times someone plays an HII, something will go wrong and it will be a wasted effort. I must say that I would think the odds are very high that when someone plays an HII, the odds that they will pick the correct time to play it as well as the correct person for whom to play it is just far too high for it to work. I would have thought that most times an HII is played, the vote would not have been against them and would have the correct majority. Nonetheless, now that they have introduced this "Anti-Idol", I would expect that to fail even more often than the original HII. Why? Because ... 1) They have to pick the correct time to play this Anti-Idol and that's a very difficult thing to get right. And ... 2) They also have to select the correct person who will be getting voted out - not necessarily the person who will be playing the idol. I would guess that in order for this Anti-Idol to affect the game, the show runners need to arrange for an AI to be played almost every time that someone is about to be voted out. This is a multi-million dollar show. So ... I would expect the show runners would have done their homework and would have a very good grasp of the odds. Surely they must know just how many Anti-Idols they have to put into the game in order for them to have some effect. Wouldn't they look stupid if people were to play an Anti-Idol every week and they never hit it correctly? By "hit it correctly" I mean they have to correctly guess for whom the idol will be played - not necessarily who will be playing the idol. So, not only do they have to guess right as to for whom the idol will be played, they also have to guess when it will be played as well as for whom it will be played. I think the odds are very much lower than just having to guess when someone is about to be voted out. Let me ask one final question. What can the show runners possibly do for a an encore to the Antie-Idol? Will they try to introduce an Uncle-Idol? I mean will someone get an Anti-Anti-Idol? The idea would be that if you know person X is going to get voted out and you also know that someone will be playing an Anti-Idol to ensure Person X will get voted out even if someone else plays an Idol to protect Person X, will you then be able to play your Anti-Anti-Idol which will nullity the effect of the Anti-Idol and cause the person to go home anyway? Oh dear. I'm getting a headache now. This Probst fellow is just getting to be too much. Just much too much! P.S. I hope you will excuse me. But I'm just tying to poke some fun at these silly idols. I deliberately made this post sufficiently complex that it should be very difficult for anyone to figure out whether an Anti-Idol makes any sense. I'm just trying to poke some fun at these Idols.

    I wrote a rather large and extremely nasty post about Nastalie. Ultimately, I decided that I just couldn't post it because it would be bound to offend the sensibilities of many people here. But I really do want to say something. I just don't know how to say it. However, if someone was sitting behind me while I was making a fire and they were telling me to pick up one stick ... NO! NO! NO! Not that stick - The other stick! etc. I would hope that I would have something to say to them about the sticks or the stones or what they could do with the sticks. Oh dear. I better stop now before I get myself into trouble.

    I was happy and proud of Gabby for winning that IC. She rose to the occasion like a real champ! Excellent observation!

    I didn't mean that he would be disbarred for telling that story. I meant that any lawyer who can't keep their mouth shut is on their way to very serious problems.

    http://xfn-blogs.xfinity.com/tv/2018/10/11/survivor-castaway-jeremy-i-made-a-joke-around-the-campfire-and-that-got-back-to-angelina/ "Crawford: She mentioned the joke, but there was no way to talk to her about it because she didn’t want to talk about it on camera. So, what can you do? I’m an open, honest person. Everything about me can be on camera. I’m a lawyer, I’m good with rules. So, I didn’t know what to do with my tribe’s inability to follow rules." Sorry Jeremy. But I have formed the opinion that you may well be a shit lawyer and I would never want you to represent me. You can't keep your fucking mouth shut? What kind of horseshit is that for a lawyer? I see you on the road to disbarment. Imbecile!

    I am very surprised too. He is a very smart guy and if I didn't know better, I would have pegged him as the lawyer and Jeremy as something else. I can understand why John has good success with the owners of a Mexican Wrestling League. If he has been truthful, it's understandable why they would have made him some high level exec. I'm looking forward to him getting JP's job somehow. Wouldn't that be wunderful? Oops. Sorry. I forgot that not everyone dislikes JP as much as I do. You have to give Mike a lot of credit. (Don't you?). He really pegged the danger of allying with Jeremy. I always thought Mike was very astute about a whole bunch of things. But he is even smarter than I ever gave him credit for. I wonder what the odds are that he could win this thing?

    I think that people who name their alliances do it in order to make themselves more memorable in the minds of the viewers. I would guess that hardly anyone will remember their names after the show is over. But if they give their alliance a memorable name, it just may keep them memorable in the minds of the public. After all, perhaps they realize that almost no one will remember their names once the show is over and so choosing a memorable name for their alliance may just be a way to keep their memory alive in the minds of the viewers? That's hardly something most of them will remember - especially if they do it at the time the show is happening. Either way, it seems fairly harmless to me.

    Doggone it! I just made a reply to this post and for some reason, when I pressed the ENTER key, it just seemed to disappear. I'm afraid that I may be suffering from some kind of malware or something. But to summarize my missing post, I just said I was confused by Christian because on one hand, he seems to profess his love for Gabby. But on the other hand, he seems to take great delight every time someone discusses the blindside of Jessica, he seems to point the finger at Gabby and make it seem like she was the one who orchestrated the entire blindside - all by herself! That is not the action of a friend or a lover. What the Heck is going on with Christian? Is he just confused as to the difference between a friend and an enemy? Or is he truly strangely diabolical? If he is being truly diabolical, I would enjoy seeing Gabby take a cup of coffee at the reunion show and dumping it on his head. He surely would deserve that. What a snake! Of course, I could be wrong and he may just not know how to behave as a friend. But who gets to be an adult and not know how to treat a friend? It just does not compute! I am definitely confused about his behavior.

    Yes Indeed. He sure could!
  14. S04.E10: Winner

    I am very sorry. But despite spending more than an hour trying to produce a reply to the above post, I failed. No matter how often I tried or how many different ways in which I tried, I just kept on failing. My reply always seemed to devolve into a soliloquy about Harvey Weinstein and the way in which our society seems to have devolved in such a way that it now seems quite impossible (at least impossible for me) to discuss gender rights. The only thing I've been able to accomplish was to make a big mess. So, ...... I apologize to you all and I'm afraid that I cannot explain why I've been unable to produce any kind of sensible reply. I'm sorry and disheartened. I don't know what to say except, "Yuck". -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm very sorry but I intended to erase the above post before I left this board for the day. I don't know why or how. But this post has remained here apparently for quite some time before I realized it was just a mistake. I intended to erase it and I'm sorry but I decided to leave it here in case anyone has written a reply.
