Let's Get Rid of the Weak Players Before We Even Start

Original Air Date: Feb 12, 2009

Rachel – Senior Managing Editor

Ah, Survivor... How we have missed thee! What crazy people have you brought us this time? A guy that looks like Lorenzo Lamas? A skinny girl with strep? An old lady who doesn’t know what a "pace" is? Oh my dear, sweet Survivor... Indeed, we have surely missed thee!

  1. The Top 16 Things I Learned on Survivor: Tocantins

    Tribe Timbira
    Benjamin: The 37 year-old soccer coach from Missouri, I kid you not, looks exactly like Lorenzo Lamas. Oh, and he’s cocky, too. I rather get the heebie-jeebies whenever he talks, which is often.
    Candace: A lawyer from ... I have no idea. Talk about flying under the radar.
    Erinn: Within the first five minutes of the game, this hairstylist from Wisconsin wonders why she even decided to do this. Way to question your purpose in a strategic game immediately! I don’t think she’ll go very far.
    Jerry: A 49 year-old U.S. Army sergeant, Jerry has decided on a strategy to fly under the radar for the first part of the competition. Too bad sergeants have a hard time not giving orders.
    Joe: Sorry, I don’t remember him at all.
    Sierra: She was the first “voted out” of the tribe. Or was she? In fact, the first vote, worded ever so carefully by Jeff, did not eliminate a person but give them a pass to skip the 4-hour hike to camp and a choice to either look for a Hidden Immunity Idol or to change first impressions by setting up the camp. She chose to show the jerks who voted for her that she is not weak (never mind the strep throat) and she built a shelter for eight.
    Taj: Proved himself in the Immunity Challenge as he took control and helped build a set of stairs and lead his tribe to victory. Not Tribal Council tonight!
    Tyson: I have a theory that Mormon is the new black. Every reality show, it seems, now has a token Mormon (which isn’t bad at all, ‘cause I’m one myself!), and Tyson is this seasons Mormon de Jour. Oh, yeah, he like to be naked. Interesting...

    Tribe Jalapio
    Brendan: An Entrepreneur from New York, helped his tribe win the Immunity Challenge. That’s all I remember about him.
    Debra: She might be one of the wildest middle school principles I have ever seen.
    JT: A 24 year-old cattle rancher Alabama is a good guy to have around. He can read a compass, he’s built, and he’s soft spoken.
    Spencer: The guy is 19 and the youngest contestant ever. Enough said.
    Stephen: This guy wants to keep his geeky side hidden. For some reason, he thinks that will put a target on his back. Yeah, I don’t understand either.
    Sydney: She is a model. Again, enough said.
    Sandy: Like Sierra was the first “voted out” of her tribe, but unlike Sierra, she chose to look for the HII. That was a bad move on two counts. First, her tribe mates were none too happy to see that they had no shelter when they arrived, and second, she can follow clues for anything! “What is a pace?” Are you kidding me? Luckily for her, there was one more annoying castaway in the tribe which leads us to...
    Carolina: If one loses an Immunity Challenge, what is the first thing one should talk about back at camp? Why, cleaning up, of course! Carolina rubbed everyone the wrong way and became the answer to a trivia question when she was the first person voted out of Survivor: Tocantins

    What do YOU think? Did the right person get sent packing? How beautiful is that river? Give us your Two Cents… We’ll put in for some buffs.

  2. I hope Tweedle Dumb and Tweedle dumber don't continue their idea of voting off only the weak (i.e. women) or else this will be my shortest season watching Survivor EVER.

  3. I'd like to make a motion: Let's just change the tribe's name to Jalapeno and have it done with. No one can pronounce it correctly anyway.

  4. I can barely say "Tocantins" myself! :)

    And, please, Survivor, for the sake of Jeff, keep some of the hot girls on the show!
