    Maybe "gruff" is the more correct word. I'd have to watch again, it's been awhile, but that's my recollection of him.

    yeah that was Laura Zerra and E.J. Snyder in the Amazon as replacements, first episode of season 2 where he talked about the dark troll in the closet and they had the 'respect the animals' talk about killing the eel. Both of them kicked ass.

    Laure & EJ were clearly the best pair.

    I'd like to see them allow it at least once, just to demonstrate how useful a .22 could be in a survival situation. Other than fish and crab traps, primitive trapping doesn't seem realistic for a novice or a hobby survivalist like most of these people seem to be.

    That was so stupid. As stupid as when someone thanks an animal for giving its life. And the show docked the man in his survival rating for her freak out. Absurd.

    Jebus, this week's show in Argentina was just brutal. I can't imagine being cold like that for three weeks. It was also a bummer that we finally get a contestant who knows about traps, but the weather pretty much kills his chances.

    Doctor lady had the perfect temperament for her partner. I'll bet she's a rock star around the office nowadays.

    Wet cold then bugs are the worst issues they will encounter in NAF. I thought guy was going to go off his rocker when he want head to toe in mud.

    Didn't think it was wise to try and carry all the bark they way they did. Maybe dry out however many sheets they could tie up and strap on their back or something...dragging that wet bark just about killed them.

    Did I miss it, or did they not show Tom and Lisa taking a single drink of water or talking about where they were getting their water during their entire 21 days in Argentina?

    Sometimes the editing on this show is just terrible. They show certain scenes 3 or 4 times, but then they completely ignore things that are essential to survival.

    Water fell from the sky regularly for the whole 3 weeks. I'd guess one of the first things they did when they picked their campsite was toss some large leaves out to catch rain and after that drinking water was the least of their problems.

    They showed the guy laying around camp for what seemed like days, then the girl said something to him like "You need to slow down." Which made me think he had probably been wearing himself out hauling firewood or something which they never showed.

    Then there was her idea to stack stones against the side walls and lean them against the structure. When he built a basic fire reflector out of rocks they tried to make it seem like that was her idea, but it wasn't. Her idea was stupid.

    If I ever went on this show, I'd love to have a vegetarian as a partner. I'd get to eat anything I found! lol

    I did see in that episode, the bananas that somebody was talking about. It was a huge bunch with had to be a hundred bananas on there.

    The question was not whether I could guess where they might have gotten drinking water. It was whether it was shown at all on the episode.

    I could guess all of the techniques people might use to survive in a given location, but that does not mean I do not want to see what people actually do.

    It was interesting how at the beginning she said that she had no doubt that she could have survived the 21 days on her own. Then, near the end, she said how Tom's support really helped her get through it.

    I did not see any images of them sharing body heat. Every time it showed their shelter, they were lying or sitting and barely touching each other at all. One time it showed Tom rubbing Lisa's back with his hand.

    So, you would not "find" any bananas if you had a vegetarian as a partner? ;)

    Note to self: Avoid whiney self absorbed high maintenance CA girls

    Not that I'm enamored with the in your face Jersey style personality. They're likely Jets fans.

    It was funny how as soon as Corinne tapped out, Chris was able to start a fire and caught a nice crab. Too bad Corinne had not brought a firestarter instead of a pot -- it seemed drinking water was easy to come by without boiling it, and the only time the pot got used was for the crab after Corinne was gone.

    Chris was pretty tough to stick things out by himself, but it did seem like their location was among the easier ones we've seen on the show.

    It was odd how Chris seemed surprised that he had to swim out to the boat at the end. In all the other episodes, the contestants somehow were informed that they had to build a raft or whatever to get to the pickup boat. Was it on the map and he missed it? Or did the producers screw up?

    How did she ever get picked for the show? You could see almost from the first minute that there was no way she was going to make it to the end.

    Maybe it's harder for them to find women for this show so they aren't as picky?

    She could kick ass in obstacle course athletic events but had negative right stuff mentality for enduring harsh conditions, minimal survival skills (could weave), and an attitude the size of California. It was a good choice for our entertainment. She's lucky she didn't "accidentally" choke on a palm frond at night when the cameras were away. :)

    Jersey guy could get on my nerves but the very least I could do would be to cooperate with a partner who did know what he was doing and was willing to work his tail off.
