My Big Question: Back in 2008, Jeff Probst and I did a video segment called the “‘Survivor’ Question of the Week” where we’d debate the merits of a specific topic. One of those topics was, “Who was the least deserving winner in ‘Survivor’ history.” I chose Chris Daugherty because I felt like he was lucky that the female alliance fell apart when it did and I didn’t like how he misled people like Eliza before voting them out. The lying struck me as very unnecessary.
However, that was based on a four-year-old season I had watched before yapping about “Survivor” was my actual job. So for this rewatch, my main goal is to critique Chris’s performance to see if he deserved my worst-ever ranking.
And with that, let’s get this party started…

My environment is a little polluted! I have to start working that into my everyday conversations.
Nobody has ever said, “Yeah, I have a solid alliance…but that guy I don’t trust is really good at fishing…
Ami takes the rainbow as a sign that Yasur is going to win reward. Might’ve been one of the rainbows you can only see from one side of an island.
Attention math majors: when playing a game of memory, does it make sense to intentionally pick something that is known with your second pick if your first pick is a dud? Seems like the women were able to clean up when the guys were revealing important items with their second picks.
I would pay serious money for a translated audio commentary of what Da (sp?) thought of his time with Yasur.
Yasur singing while Da was leaving like they were the Rockford Peaches? Awesome. That’d be me. I’d get voted out due to one too many choruses of “Oklahoma.
Not sure I get Brady’s argument that Rory isn’t a jury threat. (Was I hearing that right?) If anything, he should play up how capable the women are in challenges and how likely they are to take out the men if they get to the merge with numbers. Also, Rory has some loose cannon tendencies he could play up nicely. Or worst case, fake a story that Rory is gunning for Sarge.
As someone who just completed a replay of “7th Guest,” I’m pretty sure I’d own this puzzle.
A hundred “Survivor” points to Eliza for bringing the troops in to whisper her bigger strategies. This is absolutely the kind of puzzle that has a trick to it and the guys could have easily overheard it.
The last time I spoke with Challenge Guru John Kirhoffer, I asked him if copying off of your opponents should be frowned upon. He channeled Eddie Guerrero in his response saying, “If you’re not cheating, you’re not trying.
And how about the guys? One of the saddest challenge performances ever.
