Tonight marked the final Thursday of the 20th edition of Survivor. In my opinion, Heroes vs. Villains was without a doubt the most enjoyable season of the award-winning reality show. It was the third time that there was an “All-Star” cast, but the first two cannot compare. It's not even close. On Sunday night the two-hour season finale takes place and is followed by the reunion show. The first order of business on the reunion show will be to reveal the Sole Survivor.
We will have to wait until 9:00 p.m. Central Time to see who wins the million dollars. But, for what it’s worth I am willing to share with you the way I would like to see this epic season conclude. Please keep in mind that this is the way that I want it to play out, not necessarily the way I think that it will.
5. The first person that has to be eliminated on Sunday night is the annoying Sandra. Forget the fact that she is horrible in challenges; she has easily been the most irritating person this season. Every time the woman opens her mouth I cringe. It’s not just the accent; it’s the stupid things she says. The sooner she goes the better.
4. For his own good the next to go should be the hunky Colby Donaldson. Not only will an early exit prevent him further embarrassment during challenges, but also it will give him the opportunity to get some much-needed rest. I swear I saw him nodding off during tonight’s Tribal Council. Colby has gotten old.
3. If it wasn’t for Sandra’s obnoxiousness and Colby’s ineptness, Parvati would have been my choice to be the first to go. If you look up diva in the dictionary I am pretty sure you fill find a picture of Parvati. You will also her picture by haughty, arrogant, pretentious, conceited and pompous. Hopefully some day someone will be kind enough to inform her that her shit does indeed stink.
2. It’s pretty bad when Jerri becomes the voice of reason, but she has. Of all the castaways this season, she has been the most levelheaded and least abrasive. Which is quite remarkable given her past performances. On top of that she has done a very respectable job in the challenges. She has a good shot at taking home that giant check signed by Mark Burnett.
1. There is only one person worthy of being the Sole Survivor of Heroes vs. Villains. That would be the Hall-of-Famer Russell Hantz. No one comes close to him in this game I love so much. They should put his picture on every Hidden Immunity Idol in all future seasons of Survivor. Damn, I am going to miss him.
There you have it. That is the way that I would like to see things happen Sunday night. But they won’t. There is no way that Russell will win it all. He will never be able to garner enough jury votes. He couldn’t do it last season and he won’t do it this time either.
Yes, he lied, cheated and bullied people at times, but so did everyone else. He just did it so much better than anyone else. That’s why he won’t get their votes. They resent his superiority. When it comes to Survivor, Russell Hantz is the best there is, was and ever will be.
Sadly that’s it for this Thursday. Next week I will probably be watching the Brewers and the Pirates play ball. But before then I will be anxiously watching Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains on Sunday night hoping for a Russell miracle. Until then…from the booth.
