I just finished watching episode 11 of Survivor: Cook Islands. Can you believe it's the 13th season of Survivor? I stop watching after season 3 … it was in Africa or something, I can't remember except that it got boring … you know, the same strategies, the same kind of stereotypical cast … so I stopped watching it … that and I moved into my own place without a TV :P However, with season 13, Mark Burnett decided to divide the tribes by race and that intrigued me… I started reading about it, what happens in each episode … as a social project I thought it was pretty interesting. After two episodes, they merge them all and it was like a normal survivor and I thought … ok, I'm going to stop watching it.
Then I was in LA for work and watched the recap episode as well as some pivotal episodes, mainly just the MUTINY one which practically sucked me into this season. Mostly because of the diverse range of tribe members … many of which were picked off the streets. Other than that, the producers basically did the usual things to stir up drama. So I think for the newer seasons, they should really keep up this MO – mix up the cast with people who applied with people who really don't have a clue about the series and in all honesty don't quite care for it but are game to try anything for a million dollars. Opens the game play to a wide opportunity of new strategies :) For anyone who's watching it currently watching it on channel 5, don't miss episode 8 … you so won't regret it. It brings new meaning to the David and Goliath.
Ok, I'll 'fess up here's the reason why I'm into this season too … cute, smart and check out those abs … I'm a total ab girl and you know, he's really really sweet … or at least the version the producers choose to portray on TV. Oh well, that's why I love crushes, celebrities or otherwise, they are exactly how you imagine them to be in your head and it never becomes real and have no chance of getting bad :) I love crushes ;)
In real life, I'm as lucky as I am in my head … AJM is sweet, funny, smart and best of all, kind :) So a girl can sometimes have her cake and eat it too … the thing is though, good things never ever lasts but hey, that's life … up and down and up and down … if not, life would be boring like the rest of the Survivor seasons … I rather take my chances with a little more excitment and great opportunities for the underdog like Suvivor: Cook Islands 🙂
