Last week, Eric got a little worked up and the producers exacerbated that to make him seem a little out of control. Lee took this to be his racist time to shine and started trying to antagonise pretty much all the men. This week Eric is all but forgotten, and all the drama is placed on Lee’s head. So what does he do? Let’s talk about that.
Last week, Rachel was caught up in drama with DeMario who may have had a girlfriend before? Who knows. He was told to get the f*ck out and we thought it was all good… until he showed up at the cocktail party for the last word.
Early season Bachelor and Bachelorette can get so cheesy – but that’s exactly what I love about it. After the crazy-long first night, all the boys changed into t-shirts to become the regular boys they are and started shouting out for Rachel. But don’t worry, Chris Harrison is there to find out how the boys feel about her. Anyone else a little weirded out about how much they talked about how she smells?
After that, we get our first “right reasons” drop and a date card…Continue reading
Last week had a crazy finish as fan favourite Malcolm was sent home, so now we’ll be tasked with finding new favourites and predicting new winners. And before we go any further, I need to rant a little about why I dislike Sandra.
I know a lot of people love her because she’s the only two-time winner and she’s a badass. But I’m really not a fan. She’s arrogant, overconfident and brash – which isn’t that enjoyable to watch when the castaway doesn’t also have some kind of flair or oddity. I don’t know how to describe it, but she’s not fun. I enjoy the subtleties of good manipulators and strategists in Survivor, but everything is so straightforward. Maybe I’ll grow to like her throughout the season, but her immediate control of her tribe has left me very bored. I loved Boston Rob, but the season he won was not enjoyable – that kind of obvious control from the beginning ruins the entire point of the show: struggling or battling to victory and Sole Survivor status.
Last week, we saw Ciera get voted out first with Tony following close behind. Both came from the Mana tribe which will need some big help to compete against the solid-looking Nuku tribe.Continue reading
The day we have all been waiting for is here: Survivor is back on our TV screens, and it’s with a bunch of returning players we know and love (or hate, because let’s be honest). It’s also Survivor’s 500th episode, which is an incredible milestone for any show to hit, but you can expect some big things tonight!
I always love the opening shot where Jeff Probst is standing somewhere precarious, and this time it’s on a wrecked ship in the middle of the ocean. In case you wanted that mini-insight. It’s Probst at peak-Probst, how can you not love it? If you want to know who my favourites are (so you understand why I rant over some players), you can find that post here.
But let’s get right down to it. The teams are:
Nuku (blue) with Debbie, Tai, Andrea, Cirie, Brad Culpepper, Sierra, Sarah, JT, Ozzie, and Zeke
Mana (orange) with Hailey, Caleb, Troizan, Sandra, Aubry, Tony, Michaela, (Jeff) Varner, Ciera, and Malcolm
