    Two hospital bills would say otherwise, but if that's all you've got, go with it.

    I'm so glad you know for a fact what someone else would do. Your life must be incredible!

    Like the people who do have children always do such a great job raising them... :rolleyes:

    I stand by my original comment that no one should ever be fired solely because of how they've been portrayed on a heavily edited reality show.

    I think people are simply exaggerating to make a point. The basic idea is that most/all parents would simply not want to take the risk with Alicia and would prefer to go with someone else.

    We take risks every day when we hand over our kids to other people. Why take the chance with Alicia?

    That's not the same as hoping she gets fired when you don't really know her.

    Sure it is. If my kid(s) are under her care, I would try to find someone else. That is exactly the point. Why take the chance? I've seen enough to worry me a great deal.

    So people are simply projecting "what would I do" to "what other parents will/should do".

    You're not allowed to tell anyone you're leaving for Survivor? That's weird.

    "I need to take a leave of absence."
    "Wow, ok, why?"
    "Can't say, but it's really important."
    "Yikes, that's going to hurt us, but if you say it's important, ok."

    6 months later...

    "You left us in a lurch at work for 6 weeks to be on a TV show?! F--- you."

    first rule about Survivor club, we're not allowed to talk about Survivor club.
    Considering how many of the more recent entrants have been semi-actors/wannabees it's not like they're that missed in their day jobs.

    I'm not sure that being a ***** on a reality TV show disqualifies someone from being a good teacher any more than being a foot fetishist would disqualify someone from being a good surgeon.

    While I'm disliking this season more than any other, I think the Colton-Alicia show was a realization that the only way for them to extend their 15 minutes given that neither has the ability to actual win would be to be over the top crazy.

    Christina's reaction to their comments towards her and her coddling of Colton seems to indicate that we missed a lot of what was going on behind the scenes and that this was more schtick for the camera.

    DevdogAZ's comments on an interview he heard seems to indicate there was much more gameplay going on than just what we saw prior to Colton getting a tummy ache.

    Have we ever seen a bigger bunch of dislikabel idiots on one tribe? What the hell is Christina doing to everyone that even Tarzan seems to dislike her personally? And Leif and Jonas seem to be as dumb as the rest.

    It was pretty funny watching Tarzan climb up the blocks to throw the coconut at the trampoline. I'll give him credit though, he was great when he threw the coconut at the tramp (not Alicia). Two for two I think.

    Every other season on Survivor? Seems like someone says that every season.

    There have been tribes of idiots before, but I'm not sure they were as dislikeable. I know I have never hated players more than Colton and Alicia. And I can't even feel sorry for Christina after the way she acted when Colton got sick. Leif is just a dummy and Tarzan annoys the hell out of me though he may be playing a great game if the other players look past him being feeble in physical challenges and don't vote him out.

    I guess there's Jonas.

    FWIW I enjoyed Russell and Johnny Fairplay. Naonka wasn't close to as bad as Colton and Alicia.

    Jonas thought Colton was a mastermind and cried when he left. He's the dumbest of the bunch.

    You're right. I forgot about the crying. I just remember him seeming to want to take control of the game after Jonas left.

    Yes, that whole tribe can fall into the fire.

    She was back then, when she was the looniest bird in the bin. Now she doesn't seem so bad. :)
