Tonight’s episode of Survivor: Nicaragua was interesting, Very interesting and at the same time, sad. I will do things backwards tonight and let you know right away that Marty was the tenth person voted off. He now joins Alina and is the second member of the jury. I can’t wait to see his performance at the final Tribal Council. The man can talk, often way too much. It was probably his chronic case of diarrhea of the mouth that helped earn him his exit.
That was somewhat interesting, but it wasn’t sad. I will get to that in a bit.
Another interesting aspect of tonight’s show was that I was able to place the remaining ten competitors into four separate categories. Figuring these people out was something that I struggled with earlier this season.
Not any more.
Fabio and Benry are the only two that qualify as LIKEABLE. They are both decent fellows and play the game hard. The interesting thing about Fabio is that he isn’t as dumb as he appears.
At one point, while discussing strategy with Benry, he said “I hate to play stupid so much, but it’s the smartest thing to do right now.” The dude is crazy like a fox.
Purple Kelly, Dan and Chase fall into the WHO CARES group. Chase proved that he wasn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer when he chose to back the women’s team during the Reward Challenge and missed out on the reward.
Dan is just useless. I don’t think he even wants to be there anymore. And am I the only one that thinks that he may have soiled himself going down that second zip line during the reward?
Purple Kelly is just another pretty face who isn’t quite snotty enough to be moved into the next group. That bunch is special.
The UNLIKEABLE classification is made up of Sash, Brenda, Holly and Jane. Holly and Jane are in this group for basically the same reason – they are a couple of bitter old ladies. They only difference is that Jane has Holly by twelve years. And she don’t shut up.
Sash and Brenda deserve this rank because they are both power mad. They are more concerned with being in charge than they are in winning the game. If they don’t watch out they will be a part of the jury sooner than they would like. That would be fine with me.
If you recall, I said that there were ten remaining competitors that I put into four categories. I also said that I found something very interesting and at the same time sad. I can satisfy all those statements with three letters.
She is in a group all by herself. It’s titled – DESPICABLE. This woman is a foul-mouthed, nasty human being. Or should I say, “Humanitarian” as she so eloquently butchered the English language during Tribal Council.
After a particularly profane tirade during Tribal Council, veteran host Jeff Probst marveled that she was still alive in the game. She simply justified talking the way she does and being a rotten thief by saying, “This is what I am.”
Nice. That makes it all okay.
Pretty interesting, huh? Oh ya, the sad part. Nay is a Physical Education Teacher in Los Angeles. That’s right, this poor excuse for a “Humanitarian” is someone who teaches children. I’ll say it again. A teacher? Really?!?
I’m going to be sad until next time…from the booth.
