23 inches is only one inch less in the waist than the classic 36-24-36 measurements.
Classic, or classic male fantasy?
Finally got around to watching this...... Glad Leslie is gone!! Courtney can go next!!
James is amazingly strong.
certainly not mine...while I don't like fat, I'd rather have fat than skinny...
I don't remember, but did she try swinging with two hands on the handle? I don't think she should be so upset, why would they have put her first? And even with her problems they still came very close.
It wasn't even like she swung it: it was like she shoved it. This girl looked like she had absolutely zero athletic ability.
They should have told her to swing it like a baseball bat. But she's from NY; what do New Yorkers know about baseball anyway?
To each his own. I think Courtney is by far the most attractive castaway this season...
Does anyone else hear Jean-Robert pronounced "Zhan-Robere" and immediately think, "Fontaine Delatour Dauterive "?
I was thinking the same thing. Sure, she's skinny but it didn't look like she was trying at all. If she put her weight into it she should have been able to chop through the rope fairly easily. I was surprised to see the blisters on her hands. Maybe she was exhausted from lack of food.
Definitely lack of energy - whether that be from malnutrition since beginning Survivor or from long before that, but she could barely even pick up the machete, let alone swing it.
Heck my 6 year old nephew could have cut the ropes faster than she was doing it.
Too bad she is 26-23-26.
What bugs me, is that she then complains that her tribe is trying to figure out how she can do the least damage during challenges. Well, yeah, that is what they are suppose to do!
While she did seem to have problems even picking it up, I'm not sure if that was because of weight, or it kinda looked like she just barely had a grip on it. (Personally, I'm not convinced holding the machete didn't intimidate her, she kinda acted like she was somewhat afraid of it.) As far as why she couldn't chop through anything, it looks like she was only using her wrists to swing (which probably explains why she hurt them), instead of using her arms. It's going to be tough for anyone to chop through things using their wrists (although it begs the question of why someone didn't point that out to her).
ok...she's way too skinny and ugly...but I have to defend her...she clearly tried very hard with the sword...her hands were a mess afterwards...she simply has no athletic ability whatsoever and has zero muscles...
I don't know...it seems to me it was all about technique...
Yes, she did not have the upper body strength (heck, or even lower body strength)... But it seemed to me that she did not understand the concept of building the momentum and creating a "chopping" effect on the rope, versus using it like a steak knife and trying to slice it... I deleted the show, so I can't go back and watch it...but that was my takeaway from memory...
Courtney's lack of strength -- though pretty amazing -- was not the main issue for me. It was that she was crying and apologizing and practically giving up instead of really working on the problem. Even given her physical limitations, I think she could have approached the challenge in a more effective and less annoying way.
you don't know how long she had been trying...she was clearly exhausted...given that she's never competed physically before (I'm assuming), she was clearly not used to this type of effort and how to "fight through it"...
She could have stopped, rested, and carefully watched a member of the other team, then tried to implement their technique. That would likely have been a lot more effective than the whining and halfhearted effort that we saw.
How can you be an adult person and have no experience whatsoever with putting effort into difficult tasks? Physical, mental, it doesn't matter what the task is. Sometimes things are going to be a struggle, but I want a team member who will try to push through and try her hardest with a good attitude. I know she was frustrated and I'm not saying she didn't have reason to be -- obviously the task was very challenging for her -- but I just wasn't seeing the kind of attitude and drive from her that I would want on my team.
