9 Vanuatu Site Main Menu : Survivor
is Back : Survival of the Weakest
by Mike Liebner, TVisKing.com
This season of Survivor Vanuatu,
has definitely turned into "Survival of
the Weakest". While I may be bitching
and moaning more about what is happening on
the show, the
reality is that I am still watching and I am
still hooting and hollering when things happen
on the show.
For example last night when the
votes were cast and it was Julie that got
dumped instead of Twila, I yelled "nooooooo!".
Not the pretty one!!! No!
Eliza has become the strongest
of the weak, with perhaps more
muscle than formerly flabby Chris
(he seems to have lessened his
load a bit and is now almost skinny).
while things may not exactly be going my way
this season (or yours - or
contestants for that matter), Survivor 9 Vanuatu
has continued to be entertaining. But it is
still LAME and of the 4 seasons I have watched
it is by far the WEAKEST. But that doesn't
mean that Survivor has been bumped off the
top spot of my season pass on Tivo. Nope, it's
still there right above the Apprentice which
is trailing right on it's ass (another Mark
- more of an edge I think, but that may be
because it is only in season 2 and is getting
So what is my point and where
am I going with this?
Despite this season being a little
ho-hum and despite the challenges being dumbed
down to give us "Survival of the Weakest",
this show still rocks. I am eagerly awaiting
the finale and can't wait to see which of the
"weak" will win the big enchilada.
was a cutie!
we have kept at least 1 pretty
girl on the island???
but Eliza is not attractive
to me (besides - she is the
next to go...)
I actually said that 2 months
ago when the weak were taking
over - oops - I was wrong...
not about Dolly being cute, but
about Eliza being the next to
So... the FINAL FOUR... the 4 weakest
are... (in order of WEAKNESS):
1 Scout - not worthy of being in
the game. If she wasn't so damn weak she'd
booted long ago, but the game isn't about
survival anymore... it's about flying under
the radar and not intimidating the others.
Have you seen her hobble through the challenges?
She doesn't even try to win.
2 Twila - Twila rubbed me the wrong
way from the beginning of the season. Despite
her being a repulsive woman that would
even lie about her family (I know - it's
Survivor!), she is flabby with stretch
marks all over her and is far from strong...
she's a bitter old woman and wouldn't survive
a week on an island by herself... She had
an ager fit after the last tribal council
that showed her true colors... mean and
3 Chris - Chris was a weak one
from the get go flubbing the earliest of
(fell off balance beam) so it's no wonder
he is still there... nobody dreamed he'd
ever win a challenge so they let him stay.
I know there are those of you out there
that think he is a brilliant strategist,
but I say it's not his strategy that kept
him there, it's the fact that even Rory
had better odds of winning immunity.
4 Eliza - I never liked Eliza... until
now... she became the underdog and I appreciate
her strength despite her bony thin frame.
If the camera catches her at a bad angle
she looks like a bag of bones... glad she
had a hot dog with Chris last episode...
she looked emaciated... but guess what
- despite the thin frame she has become
a dominant force and a powerhouse at challenges
(that's a sad statement).
I believe that Chris and Eliza SHOULD
be in the final 2.
I think it's more than appropriate that
Eliza be the one to win the million dollars...
she's survived and that is what the show
is about. BUT that may not be the way it
goes because Chris will have a say in who
he wants with him in the final two and
I doubt he wants Eliza to have a chance.
So - if I am to predict one winner I will
say Chris has the best chance because the
him and thinks he's been "crafty", while
Eliza is far from loved. But then again
- it's Survivor after all - anything can
happen... it could be Scout vs. Twila in
the final two.
Regardless... the season finale is sure
to be an interesting one! And PLEASE anyone
reading this that has access to Mark Burnett
or production team - please tell them that
fans are hankering for a season that is
Survival of the Fittest - not the weakest!!! Please!!!
the last remaining "sole survivor" be
a true survivor capable of surviving
even the most demanding of circumstances?
Or should the winner be an older woman
that got there by not being a threat???
big debate is on!
