I guess we run in different circles.
Yes, pretty sad.
It is certainly used it at work occasionally - "time to put your big boy pants on and (do thing you have been avoiding) ". I think it is a legitimate phrase also.
Hantz is the only name I even recognize, but I suppose I will when I see them.
Did everyone but those 2 vote for Denise? I thought sure Abi would vote Lisa
as the least of the 3 evils. I really would've liked to see Skupin win. He was so
proud of beating Malcolm in that final competition.
That's funny, I think this is one of the most boring parts of Survivor. That's why I even recorded it onto my other recorder, so I could watch THIS section faster than realtime (and the reunion).. but I ended up watching the whole thing faster than realtime. (and watching something ELSE for long sections of time, since I did watch it all last night).
I'd say, by your writing style, that you just outed yourself as a young female ... maybe 20 yrs. or thereabouts ... high school education ... a bit angry over a recent breakup ...
I agree with you ... I did not see why Penner felt compelled to "out" Lisa at the final tribal. I understand his thoughts about influencing the vote with the implication that she was well-off and didn't need the money, but that went against the character of "Penner" he had been portraying throughout the show. It made him come off as a "*****" (misspelled to avoid the auto-censor feature).
Cool to see Erik back...I like the idea that he was a fan in fan vs favorites 1, and now he gets to be a favorite in part 2. Lets just hope he's not so naive with his II this time.
Don't recall who Phillip is exactly, but I have this odd feeling I couldn't stand him the first time around. And didn't Penner throw out a reference to him at the final TC about how many votes he got? --- ok, just looked him up...he's the self proclaimed "federal agent" with the pink undies. Yep, not sure how he was anybody's "favorite".
Cochran - I sort of like him first time around. Everyone gave him crap for flipping on his tribe, but come on...he wasn't just at the bottom of the pecking order....they outright treated him like crap.
Brandon Hantz - seriously? He was anybody's favorite? ok.
Malcolm is cool to have back, though it's going to be another Russell Hantz situation, where nobody really knows quite what to expect.
As for the other 5, no clue who they are off the top of my head.
As for this season, I was really rooting for Penner up until he was booted, but man, what a piece of trash.
I was a bit surprised at Malcolm's bitterness towards Denise, especially when he had already arranged to backstab her, and she was only trying to protect herself. It's not as if he said "lets vote for Lisa" and she said "ok". But I guess I'll give him a pass in that, as the last person voted out, he only had 24 hours to reflect on it before FTC.
I was expecting Jeff to be quite bitter, so I was pleasantly surprised to see he wasn't.
Abi: "I don't believe that out-disrespect is one of the core values of Survivor". Well, duh. If it were, you would have won.
You know, I've been plenty harsh about the reaction of the jury members, and I know we all say it's just a game, lighten up, but it got me to thinking - it's easy for us to judge them, but how would each one of us react if we were THIS close to winning ONE MILLION DOLLARS. Pretty powerful emotions at play.
Just being on Survivor gets you this close, but being among the last 6 or 8 or 10 gets you THIS close.
But yes, Penner is still a jerk.
I think that's the kind of thing therapists do when you're analyzing someone - maybe some kind of reassuring or showing you're listening thing or something - and he just wasn't having any of it. And I cracked up a little when a few seconds later it looked like she caught herself about to do it again.
I would have thought Malcolm would have been more angry at Lisa and Skupin after they made that pact on the boat, but he sure seemed upset with Denise.
Haha who could forget Phile ? (for that matter they should have brought back the guy who spelled it like that - sorry can't remember his name)
Agreed on not remembering the 5 women and even after using The Google only Dawn brings back specific memory, although I do vaguely remember Corinne being good comic relief
Sounds like it could be a good season and glad it's "first-time" returnees, not the same ol' re-treads
I had this discussion with my son about "favorites" I don't it's actually favorites in the sense that we rooted for them as much as ones we liked to watch. That said, I could do without Brandon Hantz, but I think it might be fun watching Phillip blow up again and Cochran was an interesting survivor. Nice spoiler by Jeff asking Malcolm if he's play again when he already knew he did. Still, I'm totally tired of "All-Stars". I'd rather just newbies.
wow some people looked better back on the island..that penner hair was just too 80s. carter always looks and sounds like he's a scared kid that got woken up and he doesnt know what is going on. i thought maybe it was just his island demeanor but obviously it wasnt. pretty funny
I think the head nodding is a Mars/Venus thing. In general, women nod their head to show that they hear what you're saying. Not that they agree, just that they hear. Men in general nod to show agreement.
Interesting to read some of the interviews. Malcolm was angry that he got out-played and he knew it. Even though he was angry that Denise was there and he wasn't, he still voted for her. I'm ok with that kind of angry in the jury. Go ahead and be angry, but pull up your big-boy pants and vote for the best player, even if that player is the reason you got voted out.
My DVR cutoff right before they talked with Abi. Was there much more after that? I'm wondering if. Can find it online or if its even worth it.
Regarding the above spoilers
im not sure how they record these seasons and how long it takes them to air but you all are saying Malcolm has already been on another season? If so, he's got several months before another final show. Or are you all saying he was only asked to be on the next season but it has been filmed?
Read this only if you want to know a spoiler about the upcoming season (which may or may not be true):
There are lists floating around that have been posted in this thread that say that Malcom is on the next season beginning in February. The would have been filmed and completed before the actual reunion show that was shown live this past Sunday.
No, Malcolm is actually in the next season. Lately, they always film 2 seasons back to back (in the same location), and the 2nd season begins filming before the 1st season begins airing.
Russell Hantz did the same thing. He particpated in the 2 back-to-back seasons (heroes vs villians being the 2nd one), but because of the back-to-back nature, nobody he played with knew anything about him even though he was a returning player.
i haven't watched Survivor since maybe the third season other than this season. Wow, that must have been tough in him. Seems like your body/mind wouldn't hold up good under these type of conditions for that long of a time.
I think for Brandon Hantz's own mental safety, he should NOT EVER go back on Survivor.
I'm not unhappy that Denise won, but I was rooting for Lisa.
I really liked Penner...until the final tribal. Whoa, dude.
I'm also tired of fans/favorites/blah blah blah. It was neat the first time or two. Or three. We need all new players. It would be great if somehow they could find people who had no clue what Survivor was...
