I find Rupert as annoying as Colton. Can't stand either one.
I was hoping at the beginning they would have split returners and loved ones and had each group pick from a bag of 5 x colored rocks and 5 y colored rocks and mix the teams up that way.
I think it would be interesting to see a season of one team made up of players who were removed early due to injury (though none of the ones who fit that description who had already been brought back in prior seasons) or runners up (who hadn't already been brought back) versus a team made up of Naked and Afraid contestants.
I thought Marissa had a rocking bod as well, and pretty much knew as soon as the loved ones lost (even without Uncle Idiot's antics) that she was gone because of the eye candy factor. I HATE that it seems like the best looking women are always the first to go. I would have liked to see more of her personality beyond the reality that her uncle just screwed her out of the game.
How is he not a guy?
I interpreted that as he's not really part of the bromance that the other 4 guys had going on (we saw them on camera together a lot more than with Caleb), not that he's literally "not a guy". And he even said in his one-on-one that he wasn't really that into the guy alliance.
have you considered it's because they kept him at arms length because he was gay? if they hadn't known up front, they'd probably have welcomed him into their alliance. you know how some straight guys are - they can't be seen hangin' out with the gays, someone might get the "wrong impression".
i suspect the reason caleb said he wasn't really into the alliance was because he had already sensed the others apprehension, and knew he'd be the expendable member.
Of course I have... I was posting how I interpreted the Fool Me Twice's post that he's "not a guy", not how the on-screen alliance was developing.
Brad was a defensive lineman not a QB.
I was confusing Brad Johnson--who I think was a white QB at Minn. with Dante Culpepper, who was black. This guy is neither one of them (obviously)--a defensive player who also was at Minn.
He started his career in Minnesota played 2 years there then played for Tampa Bay for 6 years and finished with 1 in Chicago.
Culpepper's "four guys and a gay guy" comment was indefensible. I am now rooting against him big time.
I predict that Hayden is going to go far in the game. Based on what I remember about him from BB, he's very likable, and good at physical challenges. Survivor is a different game, though, so I guess we'll see.
I'm not sure "niece" is blood enough to bother Jervase that she got the boot. Some of these couples relationships don't lend to the "blood" appeal of the show. Aras and his brother have a strained relationship too, so it's hard to think their relationship will have near the effect on decisions like a husband and wife would.
If Colton can flit around like the gay pride parade, I don't see describing his partner as "the gay guy" as a big deal. Any more than saying we got the 4 white guys and the black guy. It was the easiest differentiation of the 5 guys on the tribe.
So it was an ignorant statement. He's a dumb jock who has problems counting to 9. It certainly didn't seem to be said maliciously.
Tina's daughter wouldn't make the top 20 hot survivor chick list. (potential thread?)
Far from dumb. After the NFL in 2001 he want back to Law School at the University of Florida and is a practicing trial attorney in Tampa. However, that whole scene was hilarious!
There are millions of lawyers in the US. Not all are smart. Many can count to 9 though especially if they can use their fingers. I mean aren't there > 9 on a jury? He seems pretty dumb.
I find it a bit hypocritical that many descriptions of women in these threads focus on their boob size yet it's taboo for a player to differentiate between nondescript white guys by singling out the gay guy.
He's not differentiating between the different guys. He's saying a gay guy is not a guy. That's a huge difference.
There's a difference between "the gay guy" and "four guys and a gay guy".
That's obviously your opinion and I disagree with it. He called him a gay guy (which he his BTW, and out so there's no secrecy there).
So to claim he's saying a gay guy is not a guy is simply not factual.
Bunch of guilt laden people here.
Is it OK to call Colton gay?
Mountain out of a mole hill. The easiest way to differentiate the others among a group is to pick out a descriptor. If everyone during the whole day they've been together knows one guy is obviously gay (and the partner if the biggest dick in Survivor history), labeling him is such doesn't need to be malicious.
Quick, describe the other 4 guys. You probably can't (I can't) but you remember the gay guy.
I think you're missing the point. I don't have any issue identifying him as "the gay guy". He, the football guy, and Candace's husband the doctor guy are the only 3 of the 5 that I remember.
The issue that some people are having is with the conversation that the football guy was having with at least one of the other guys (the doctor guy I think? maybe others) and he said that their alliance had "four guys and a gay guy". Why would he not just say that their alliance had five guys? He is not on a forum where no one remembers anyone's name yet. I'm pretty sure that the other guys on the tribe would know who he's talking about if there are five guys on the tribe and he said "we have five guys".
The issue is not that he described the one guy as gay, it's that he didn't describe the other guys as anything more than being guys, which the gay guy is as well. It would be as if you had 5 apples, 4 macintosh apples and a gala apple and saying you had 4 apples and a gala apple. Isn't the gala apple an apple too? Now if he said we have 4 straight guys and a gay guy, I get the differentiation. That would be equal to saying that there are 4 white guys and a black guy.
I'm not sure if you quoted me because you're agreeing with me, or if you're trying to explain to me... but you just said basically the same thing I did.
