Survivor: It's Getting the Best of Me


Quote of the Week:
It’s getting the best of me.  Maybe Boston Rob said that, but it was only appropriate for the heroes tribe this week.  I certainly didn’t guess that it would be the villains tribe that held it together and (mostly) got along. While they were doing that, the hereos were busy losing challenges and trying to figure out how to solve simple puzzles.  Here’s what I come away with after this challenge:  the heroes tribe has a decided physical advantage, but it isn’t enough for them to overcome their lack of composure and puzzle solving struggles.  Even without a fairly strong Rupert they whipped the villains in the physical part of the challenge but couldn’t figure out the puzzle.  We at least got to see James get his meathead face on and chew out Stephenie and then the whole tribe.  If this game is about changing the way you play the game, then maybe James is doing something right.  It at least worked for the week, as he succeeded and got Stephenie voted out.  Next week’s preview shows James going off on everyone, but we’ll see if it was misleading as last week’s preview….
So last week, we see Rob seemingly collapse or maybe fall off a cliff or something.  Turns out he actually felt really dizzy and lied down and then blacked out.  Okay, so blacking out isn’t exactly a little thing, but they surely overplayed how it happened.  Did he actually fall?  I don’t think so.  Here’s why:  His hat was perfectly laid over his face as if he was taking a nap, his shoes were set neatly to his side, and he seemed to have picked a nice position t lie down.  I really think he just laid down and passed out.  Did the medical staff, need to come?  Maybe.  They said he looked a lot worse than he really was.  I call foul on the fake collapse given to us by the producers.  What do you think?
This is going to be a short week as we had an addition to our family and the little guy is superceding Survivor time.  Will James explode next week?  Will the heroes finally win a challenge?  Will The Russell try to get Boston Rob out ASAP?  We’ll find out soon.

  1. Congratulations on the baby!

    I thought it was a great episode. Even though James went overboard, I agree with what he said. But did anyone else find Tom to be kind of a jerk in what he said? James should have calmed down, but that doesn't make him a loser in life.

    Tell me what you think at my TV blog, Couchtime With Jill.

  2. Yes. I forgot to mention what Tom said. Maybe James has lost before but I think Tom is the loser.
