Phoebe Leaves? NO! #SurvivorPhoebe #SurvivorAU

Hey everyone. This is gonna be a short, complain post about the recent events of #SurvivorAU Episode 14 and peoples reactions.

First of all, Phoebe is probably one of the greatest players to EVER play the game, yet she doesn’t even make Merge or Jury. It’s a tragedy, yes but it doesn’t mean the season is over.

I go onto to twitter, search “#SurvivorAU”, and what do I see?
“I’M DONE WATCHING THIS SHOW IS A PIECE OF SHIT BLAH BLAH BLAH”

THIS is the shit we deal with CONSTANTLY for the shit hole that is #BB18, yet people keep coming back to it. ONE PLAYER gets voted off, and you’re not going to watch?

“Oh well Survivor US is about to come on, good point to drop off…”
NO. This season has been great. Sure, many twists muddle the gameplay, but there is still HALF of the fucking game to play, and they ARE ABOUT TO MERGE. You’re gonna throw a hissy fit just because your fav was voted off?

I know many will say “WELL YOU DO TOO YOU BITCH”; Well not really. I drop out because of the season being bad, not just because one person left. I think that is very irrational judgement to just drop out just because someone gets voted out.

#SurvivorAU Tribe Nit-Picking: Vavau Tribe! (Yellow)

In the tale of 3 Tribes, this is the middle tribe (With Blue being overly competent and Red being… not competent at all) I originally thought this was my favorite tribe until I went through the people in the tribe and I had no idea who half of them were; so these rankings will likely be short and sweet.

 

8th Place: Tegan, 33, Personal Trainer

WHO IS SHE!?!?!?!?

 

7th Place: Kate, 28, Financial Analyst 

AS3KateIcon

WHO IS SHE!?!?!?!? (again)

 

6th Place: Craig, 32, Recruitment Officer 

AS3CraigIcon

I HATE to stereotype: I HATE it, but you know with reality shows: They always cast a certain “type” of homosexual. A fun, witty, smart one, An annoying flamboyant one, or one that you can barely tell is gay and is likely an asshole (It is very rare we don’t get one in one of these the categories), and Craig obviously fits into the 3rd category. (Sorry if i offended, it’s just what i notice!) Is Craig gonna be a villain? idk, but something about him… tells me he will be.

 

5th Place: Jennah-Louise, 27, Law Graduate 

AS3JennahIcon

She was just barely visible, which puts her right at 5th place for me right now. She has a very strong chance of making final tribal council because not many people are going to want to spell out “Jennah-Louise” on a small piece of parchment. Other then that, I can’t quite read her yet.

 

4th Place: Barry, 44, Former Professional Rugby Player 

AS3BarryIcon

I’m going to state the obvious here and point out that Barry is the only black man in a group of 23 other white people. I know Australia doesn’t have the diversity that us in North America do so I’ll let it slide.

But other than that, he seems like a really interesting guy… and he gets NO CONFESSIONALS. COME ON.

 

3rd Place: Andrew, 29, Marketing Executive 

AS3AndrewIcon

If judging on confessionals alone, I would say Andrew is the most game-aware person in this cast. He only had a couple of confessionals, but they showed us that he understands what to do in the beginning phases of the game; and what not to do. I think Andrew is someone we’ll need to keep an eye on.

 

2nd: Sue, 59, Retired Customs Officer 

AS3SusanIcon

Just like how I feel about Peter, Sue is basically a badass. More-so than Drew Christy will EVER be. She EASILY integrated herself socially into the tribe, which is a very, very good thing for her game considering the age gap. I don’t think Sue will be a major strategic force, but I think she’ll be someone that will go for just based on the fact that she’s just so likable.

 

1st: Nick, 28, High School Teacher

AS3NickIcon

Nick! He’s funny, smart, seems to know the game, and is potentially fucked come merge! What’s not to like!

In all honestly, Nick left the best impression on me after Episode 1. I found it very easy to jump on the bandwagon of rooting for him, even if it means i may be emotionally crushed down the road.

If Nick can tone down his “leader” role (Which it seems like he’s been doing a good job at), he could take it all the way. He seems charismatic and likeable, and I think he’ll make a solid player when push comes to shove.

#SurvivorAU Tribe Nit-Picking: Saanapu Tribe! (Blue)

—Pics used come from the Survivor Wiki (http://survivor.wikia.com/wiki/)—

#SurvivorAU started off brilliantly, with a very solid first episode, and not to mention a solid cast. With 16 more days than the Survivor the United States is used to, this is bound to be a very grueling game. To start off my blog, I am going to dissect STUFF… with each tribe! And I am going to start with the obvious front-runners, the Saanapu Tribe. I will rank the based on how I personally like them, and then give a brief statement on my opinions.

  8th PLACE: Conner, 23, Law Student

AS3ConnerIcon

I like everybody on the Blue Tribe. They are a very cohesive tribe that seems very, very strong out of the gate. The reason why I am ranking Conner 8th is because… The fire incident.

When there is a stick… “sticking” out of the fire, DON’T TOUCH IT… and that is exactly what he does. He freaks out after he burns his hand and runs into the ocean. I honestly don’t see this being worse than a first degree burn but like Kylie the fire-fighter said, if it does blister (and goes past the first-degree category), then it could be dangerous down the road.

This lack of common sense currently places him 8th, and he spent for what seems like a majority of the time on the island in the water tending to this burn.

To make up ground, he tries to reel in Flick for a Final 2 deal, which in her confessional said that is suspicious. Things aren’t looking good for Conner, but as long as his tribe keeps winning, he will have ample time to make up for his poor showing in this episode.

 

7th Place: Brooke, 23, Sales Executive

AS3BrookeIcon

This girl is gorgeous. I’m not the type to judge a Survivor player entirely on their looks, but she is just beautiful…. But that’s it. She’s been invisible otherwise, which I GUESS is a good sign? But it could also be bad.

 

6th Place: Flick, 23, Bartender

AS3FlickIcon

Judging entirely on her edit, she is seen as very devious. She said she would use her body to “get the vote the way she wants”, and then follows that with a statement in the confessional that she would take out Conner easily.

This could be foreshadowing her to be a very Parvati-like player (most vague comparison ever, but i’m serious), or she could fall flat on her face.

 

5th Place: Matt, 29, Magician

AS3MattIcon

I really like Matt. He seems kinda go-with-the-flow, and he does have a slight connection with arguably the challenge beast of the tribe at the moment so i would say just based on that alone that he’s sitting pretty. Game-wise, i don’t know. We haven’t had enough game-oriented confessionals to really judge him at this point. Take this ranking with a grain of salt.

 

4th Place: Kylie, 38, FireFighter

AS3KylieIcon

Kylie instantly struck an emotional connection with the audience talking about her kids right in the first 10 minutes of the show. Then proceeded to have this “hero-like” niche throughout the episode. Such a positive edit for our lovely fire-fighter here. What this means for the future? Will she be a major character? Or someone who is tragically clipped as a result of devious gameplay?

 

3rd Place: Sam, 28, Charity CEO

AS3SamIcon

Another member of the Blue Tribe with a very positive edit, was Sam; our clear challenge dominator from the pilot episode. (According to this site, “Dominator” isn’t a word, but IDGAF i’m using it.)

Sam seems very well liked by his tribe mates and seems like a nice guy; but there is one problem. Survivor is about lies, deceit, throwing people under the bus, and crying when you lose your false teeth (Only to backstab them deviously late in the game and get robbed of a few votes at FTC)…anyways…

Does Sam have game? If he does, he’s a Malcolm, and he’s awesome. If he doesn’t, he’s a Joe; and i’ll likely be rooting against him.

 

2nd Place, Bianca, 36, Private Investigator

AS3BiancaIcon

This girl scares me. She is smart to hide her status as a PI, cuz if I knew that about her, i would want her GONE. First of all, she looks like a bizarro Fox-Face from Hunger Games mixed with a young Lindsey Lohan (Which i guess is a good thing)? But then she talks about her game, and gives out very Tiffany-esque (BB18) vibes with her first confessional; that she’s just observing her surroundings.

This girl is a strategic player, and I can tell this because I said so. The question is is she going to be a TRUE master of the game? Or is she gonna wind up like Loveita from BBCAN4, annoying the shit out of people with game. I hope the former.

 

1st Place: Peter, 62, Air Traffic Controller

AS3PeterIcon

THIS guy… He comes in, oldest in the cast, with that VERY bright Red suit, and just completely kicks ass. He seems very fit, he did not hold the team back AT ALL in the challenges, which is very impressive considering he’s twice their age.

Also, he was near-invisibie, which noting that red suit, is just… terrible. At least he’s in the same invisible category with beautiful Brooke.

Even tho Des was first boot (and cut the “old men” count in half”, I really can’t wait to see what this guy brings… weither he’ll be an invisible god throughout the season, or just an awesome old guy… or something else. I just had to put him at number 1 tho.

 

…..SO YEAH, That is my analysis on the Blue Tribe! Stay tuned for my thoughts on the Red and Yellow Tribes!

PS: RIP Survivor OZ: It sucks to see Survivor finally air in your country, and that you are unable to cover it. I wish you all the best!
