only on survivor

Out of all the seasons of Survivor, I’m pretty sure I have only missed one season. It’s likely my all time favorite show and this season’s Heroes vs Villians isn’t letting me down at all. I’m two episodes behind right now and have managed to avoid spoilers. On Demand is aiding in my catch up efforts this evening.

How can you hate Boston Rob? His original season was the only one I missed, so I possibly missed some part of his deviousness. This dude can seriously play this game! I wanted him to win the last time he was on an All Star season, but I suppose falling in love is much more valuable than a million bucks, right? I’m pulling for him this season.

I’m still a huge fan of King Russell. Nothing could change that and nothing would make me happier than a Russell/Rob alliance. It’d possibly be the first finale where nobody got any votes at all towards the million.

I’m not sure why but the dynamics of the Villian tribe are so much more interesting to me.

The General is also a fan of Russell, but also likes Rupert to win it. He’s both good at the game and likeable, of course.

I really hope they keep Probst signed on for another 638 seasons. I could probably watch it that long as long as they didn’t have Coach on any future seasons. I just hate that dude a lot.

survivor: heroes vs. villians

I somewhat managed to avoid the majority of major spoilers for the newest season of Survivor. It’s always been one of my favorite shows and it’s one of the few shows we can watch with The Kid without too much worry. That’s what we’re doing right now.

The idea of Survivor being on for 10 years, coming up with 20 different seasons that have kept me greatly entertained the entire time, minus the season with Rupert and Boston Rob. I can’t remember why I didn’t watch that season. Any time they’ve come up with a premise involving contestants from previous seasons, I’ve been impressed. I’m hoping this season holds true to that.

This first episode? I forgot that I really love the villians more than I want to admit. On the heroes side, I still have mad love for James and JT, but Rupert is still one weird dude. I would have loved to see Jonny Fairplay come back and maybe even crazy Sue the truckdriver from the first season. And Twila. Remember Twila?

After 20 more seasons, I wanna be in charge of the cast. Elizabeth Hasselback is totally coming back and is gonna be on the same team as that Brian dude who was in porn movies. And all the gay contestants. I’ll call is Survivor: The Hot Mess Train Wreck.

top chef after 1 episode

Much like my love for Project Runway and American’s Next Top Model, I have no idea why it is I love Top Chef so much.

Project Runway? I don’t know the last thing about fashion design or sewing or anything of the short. ANTM? I hate skinny bitches 98% of the time, so it must be my undying affection towards Tyra Banks and the Mr/s. Jay combo that I love so much. And Top Chef? I don’t know what confit is and the idea of something containing goat cheese balls scares me a little bit.

Top Chef is honestly one of my favorites, though, and here are my thoughts, so far, for Top Chef 5.

My favorite, after only one episode, is Greg – I’m a fan of anyone that’s self-taught in whatever their art might be. Not a real fan at all of Jeff. Any dude that works in a kitchen, like chefs are wont to do, and has someone fix his hair for him, kind of gives me the heebie jeebies.

It usually takes me an episode or two to figure out who I want to kick in the nards and who I want to really see stick around for a few more weeks. Granted, I wanted to kick this girl in her lady parts and she was around until the final episode.

And if you’ll excuse me, I think I’m going to go figure out how to brunoise some apples. Who am I kidding? I can’t even peel one.
