Your girl might have been the dumbest survivor ever, I'm not even sure she knew she was playing survivor.
How about Colton and his mom? He seemed to regret nothing, but wanted to act like he did. His mother seemed really ashamed of how he acted and apologized for it! Interesting that Colton isn't as loved and accepted as he lead everyone to believe. You'd think someone so harshly judged would have some compassion in his heart.
Man! Good on Kim that she took ther pals all the way - the original promise. Also - nice that she won that last challenge. Can you imagine if CHRISTINA had won? Kim would have been voted out for sure.
Jury was much less dramatic than I thought it would be.
Has to suck Chelsea that you didn't get a single vote. Not even from Jonas - Mr. We-all-think-yer-hawt guy. Holy Jeebus you're an idiot. Chelsea was just "Kim light" so why not vote for the real thing? I did like her compliment of Tarzan's marriage.
Sabrina lost it in her closing speech. She credited others with too much, couldn't convince anyone that her suckiness in challenges and laziness around camp qualfied as a strategy, and then that whack bit at the end about needing the money because she's a teacher in a tough place and she just got laid off. Um, they all need the money, and if you're worried about your job, don't go on survivor. That pity play didn't sit well at all with me.
Alicia is a tool of epic proportions. She really did think she was a back row chess piece when she was never more than a deluded pawn.
Did you think Colton was sincere in his apology and that he's not actually a dirt-bag human? OK, I'll answer for you: NO. He even tried that quasi-conditional "I apologize to everyone I offended..." Hrm. Why not just to everyone? You JUST BARELY left out the "I'm sorry IF I offended anyone..." in that 3/4-assed apology. Just say, "I was caught up in being the nasty character and went too far and I'm sorry." But you're not, you still think it was funny, and you're a piece of shit. I'll lay 10-1 odds your Mom DID raise you that way too, or she sat mute while some other jackass did.
Alicia's apology was sincere and heartfelt for what she said. She truly did get caught up in a moment of humanity in a stressful place, and said what she said. (For those who don't watch, she compared the brainless Kat to one of her "students." She is a special education teacher.) I respected and believed her apology.
Tarzan is a fool. As someone who likes to toss around 10 dollar words myself, I say with some authority that he sucks at it. He's constantly trying to force them in where they don't fit, like champagne at a football game. I'm glad HE says he's a good surgeon. I'm not sure I'm headed to his operating table given any kind of choice though.
Troyzan - the almost cool dude. So close but too mean, too stupid. He'd have been fan favorite with 20% less ego. It was most decidedly NOT your Island dude.
Something bugged me about Jeff's question to my guy Leif about whether he felt like a representative for his 'community' and then the cut to his wife. Seemed like a sensational "Show the midgets!" move cloaked in insincere good-for-you bullshit. Why is his playing any different? I mean, other than that he sucked at challenges. I don't know, maybe it's just me. Colton's derision seemed a bit more honest than Jeff's syrupy exploitation on that one.
Huh, maybe Alicia fooled me. I don't think so. The tears came really quickly and the apology wasn't overly rehearsed, it was straight to the point. Clearly she'd heard from a lot of people how much that line disappointed them. Either way, she gets it now, I'm sure of it.
I remember Leif being bad at challenges. I had lots of hopes he'd be better, given I picked him.
Kim was smarter than everyone by so, so much, it was almost unfair. And exponentially so because the morons couldn't even realize THAT and simply kill her off early to prevent getting PWNED by her.
Did you like Troyzan's articulation of your theory of how the weak never challenge the strong, Appy? "People play in fear to get to the next day?" I thought of you. Too bad he liked the sound of his voice so much and went on and on, because it started out well said.
Congratulations Arwen! And let us know what the super secret surprise is when you get it.
COMPLETELY DISAGREE that if Christina had won immunity that Kim would have been gone. No way. Christina was making noise about Sabrina just before that and she is too stupid to change gears. Plus with Kim and Chelsea almost last minute taking Christina over Sabrina because, as Kim said, Christina couldn't put a sentence together to speak to the jury - Sabrina would have been gone. Not that it would have impacted the outcome at all. Oh, well, maybe Chelsea would have gotten a vote or two.
And I also don't buy Alicia's sincerity in her apology (and the comment was about Christina, not Kat). Forgetting herself in the game? Puhleeze! She is a Special Education teacher. That's like saying (forgive me for using you as an example, Neady) that Neady in the heat of the moment would make a horrible comment about autism. It is near and dear to your heart. That doesn't happen. Or else Alicia is a totally sucky Sp. Ed teacher. Either way she sucks.
Colton isn't sorry. His mom was sweet though. I bet his dad has some major issues. That 'tude is coming from somewhere (superiority).
So? No one is mentioning that 3 previous players who left the game due to injury are going to play in Survivor Philippines. Obviously, Colton is one. Who are the other two (do you think)?

Thanks for the detail corrections Anny! Interesting input on Alicia. Either way, I hope she grows past it - the apology real or fake at least makes it seem possible that she could, as compared to the way Colton addressed his stuff.
As for the three former injury players - I really hope one of them is not Colton. Do you have that from a spoiler site? I don't think his brand of douche should be rewarded in any way. He's not a reality show 'villain' - he's a human piece of garbage. I don't want to watch another minute of him.
Jeff didn't seem to be a big fan of Colton at the Finale show - you really sure he's one of them?
That clip of the black guy who went down... I can't remember his name. He was older but also really fit - and he'd been busting his ass for days, and then had a heart episode or whatever?
I thought that guy was done for. The look in Jeff's eyes on that show makes me think he did too. I seriously thought I was about to watch a reality show contestant die that night.
Why is this interesting?
I was hoping season 25 would be Survivor with the Stars! or something like that. With at least some quality B-listers.
I found this when I googled whether or not Colton would be one of the three:
MTV: Let's wrap this up by looking at the season overall. What should the "Survivor" powers that be learn from "One World"? What lessons should they take away from this year?
Cesternino: That's a great question. [Pauses] I think what the "Survivor" powers that be need to learn the most is to really take a look at the people they're putting on the show, and making sure that everybody going out there is armed with at least the basic knowledge of how the game works. We're going into "Survivor 25." Every contestant needs at least a crash course in how alliances work, what to do if you're not in the bottom of the alliance. I wish we had more people who really knew how to play the game before going out there, and not people learning on the fly. You wouldn't throw people on "Jeopardy" or "Wheel of Fortune" if they don't know the rules of the game. Why are we putting people on "Survivor" who don't know the rules of the game thirteen years after it's been on the air?
HELL YAH! Please no more dopes, CBS!!
As to the original question:
EW to Jeff Probst: You joked about continuing your Reunion show conversation with Coltons mother on your upcoming talk show, but there clearly are some issues in that family although I remain unclear exactly what they are. Just give me your honest take on Colton. Is he a bad person, or a person that simply triedand perhaps is STILL trying too hard to stand out and become a character on television?
PROBSTI dont know what Coltons truth is so I wont guess. We talked for a few minutes before the show and I thought he was going to be a bit more forthcoming about feeling badly about what he said. In fairness, the live show is intimidating for a lot of people. They forget what they want to say. I think you could tell from his moms bravery in standing up to speak that there is more than just a I made some bad comments but I do think Colton will probably be on the show again and I would guess hell play a similar game.
EW to Jeff Probst: You cant tease us for next week, but you can tease us up for next season. Whet our appetites, Probst!
PROBSTNext season is going to be a return to GREAT Survivor. I really believe we will remind the audience of how fun Survivor can be. I think this season was a bit of a letdown. No fault of the Survivors, we are the producers. We just didnt have the standout moments and characters needed for a great season. We do next season. See ya sooon!
That's a great find, Squid. Thanks for sharing. Meh is absolutely right!
I don't like it that they are bringing back previous players for next season even if these 3 players were taken out of the game due to injury whatnot. It was just too much a set up with Colton when Jeff talked to that Big Bang Theory actress and he said something like "What do you think of Colton being on the cast for next season?" and she smiles and says "I'd watch that!"
I'd forgotten about that survivor guy with the heart thing. Scary!
I don't know why I keep looking. Sort of an Anny-like fixation on FINDING ALL THE THINGS, I guess...
Found this in a comments section of a news story:
"it can't be Colton, since he was at the live reunion show, and the next season is currently being filmed.
The 3 contestants rumored (by people who have posted accurate information before) are Michael Skupin (who fell into the fire in Australia), Russel Swan ( who passed out in Samoa), and Jonathan Penner (who was evacuated due to a life-threatening knee injury during the Fans vs Favorites season)..."
So that would be (the dude I mentioned above):
Penner who reminded me of Rob Lowe's sidekick Kurt Fuller in the first Wayne's world movie:
and scary burn hands dude, whose hands look fine here:
Why don't I remember anything about someone having a heart attack on the show? Someone remind me of the circumstances please. Was that this season?
I forgot ALL about Colton and how horrible he was. I have only had time to watch half of the last episode and none of the reunion show but the flashbacks as they did the final torch walkthru reminded me. He should not be on any future episode IMO. His small mindedness should not be rewarded in any way. There is a way to play the game without being offensive and ignorant in the ways he was.
Kim: Way to be. You ran this thing from the start, fought like a spartan and just straight pwned all these other idiots all day every day at everything. And yet, you still managed to win the whole thing. Even the Carebears barely scathed you. Incredible. And - sadly - all too rare.
Chelsea: You played like a champ, but were severely outshined by your BFF. You had to have known this; that you stood zero chance against Kim in the end, yet you chose loyalty over strategy and basically spoon-fed her a million dollars. Don't feel too bad, though. Most everybody else did the same damn thing. They always do.
Sabrina: You and Christina played the exact same (lack of ) game, yet she got castigated while the jury fauned over you. Kudos for at least trying to dress up your useless coasting as strategy, though. Just goes to show what a few well chosen words can do (to a jury of idiots). Please share your notes with Christina.
Christina: See above. I'm not yet sure which brand I respect least: your having topped off a season of complete absence by rolling over at the final four, or Sabrina's line of BS about her strategy. But I almost felt sorry for you when Jeff grilled your ass before the jury address. I truly believe you just had no idea wtf, but I also can't excuse this degree of vacancy.
Alicia: Whatever makes your dick look bigger, you delusional pig.
Tarzan: Whatever stfu
Kat: I must admit that I'm impressed. After watching your bitter little ass eye-roll, scowl and mutter its way through the last two jury sit-ins, I was surprised to watch you get up and say the one thing that people so rarely acknowledge: that the finalists are where they are because they did what they were supposed to do (fuck you over).
Troyzan: Whatever intelligence and ability you may or may not have possessed was overridden by the constant Hulk-Outs. I am baffled as to how people continue to rage and shit on this show, knowing damn well what it means for their game. Anyway, your attempt at logic came far too late and far too light. Don't beat yourself up for failing to sway those numbskulls too much, though. It's near impossible to steer this game's lemmings away from the cliff.
Jay: Wut? Thanks for being a good sport, though. And lay off the helium.
Michael: I think you're on the wrong stage, bro. You weren't even on this show.
I was focusing more on the ending, the crux of which begins with the jury formation, in my opinion. I hesitate to spend a single second on that toadstool, but sure:
Naturally, I am sickened by Colton, but not as much by his various and mostly boring bigotries and ignorance as by his abhorrent representation of the gay community on an international stage. This WannabeQueenBitchDiva bullshit would be laughable if it weren't so disgusting. And it's sooo tired. But because it makes for better television, this horrid stereotype is one with which gays are too often associated, and Colton is yet another unfortunate turd thrown on a growing heap.
The (media) world needs more Tim Gunns. Just sayin'.
