Well, another season of Survivor is over and Mr. Bow-tie won. Remembering the beginning of the season, I sure didn’t see that one coming. Watching an older guy win survivor is about as likely as seeing Santa dieting. I have to give the professor credit, he did win enough challenges to keep himself in the game. It’s rather funny because he can’t hide his academic personality, and he is about the right age to be another well known professor trying to survive on a tropical island. Of course, it’s not like Randy was the Skipper or Corinne was Maryann. However, Mark Burnett isn’t Sherwood Schwartz either so there goes my Gilligan’s Island comparison.
So I really wanted Sugar to win, but sadly, I could tell by the way the questioning was going that she had no real hope of winning anything. One reason I’ve always appreciated Sugar is because she doesn’t mince words. She told Randy that he was a jerk and Crystal was a bully. Corinne stepped way over the line with her words to Sugar, and I suppose her point at the reunion on the editing was a good one. I never thought Corinne was that nasty, but if she had been like that throughout the season, then at least I wouldn’t have been so shell shocked at her outburst.
Is it just me or did Randy look still pissed off at the reunion? I missed most of the reunion show, I did hear Marcus agreeing that the editing seemed to spin Sugar positively (which coming from him meant we would listen, nobody takes Corinne, Crystal or Randy seriously). I’m really quite upset at the crowd for apparently applauding Randy. Why would anyone even consider rooting for him? He clearly hates women, is a racist and his brilliant plan of being an ass to everyone got him ousted EARLIER then if he had just kept his mouth shut.
At least we finally got Jeff telling the audience and future players some valid (but obvious) advice. If you actually have a chance to be on the show, practice making fire with flint!
