|Jennifer Lanzetti's Undoing|
The biggest tragedy is that I now have to put up with the droopy lobed, tough-guy, bullying of the blistering red-shouldered Kyle Jason. I get he is a bad-ass bounty hunter but I'm not going to keep down my noodles if I have to keep on witnessing his misogynistic treatment of Alecia. My one solace is that even though he may outlast her, he isn't likely to win this thing.
Though I don't have a clue who is going to win yet. That unfortunately has nothing due to it being a competitive season but rather everyone is lumpy, half-melted, vanilla ice-cream at this point. Okay, there is Tai Trang who is pretty awesome and I love his little bro-mance with Caleb Reynolds. He doesn't stand out due to exciting game play and strategy. There is a chance he may go deep due to being likable, but I could just as easily see him as a pre-merge boot due to his less than discreet idol searching.
This season also has the misfortune of being the follow-up to Survivor: Second Chance, which was easily one of the best seasons that I've seen with one of my all-time favourite winners, Jeremy Collins. This is so far flat and also has the black cloud of shaping to be a "medevac" season, which I never find all that fun because the best stuff is the lead- up to and the actual Tribal Council. I'm sure after a few more episodes of stretching and weeding out, the big players will become clearer and hopefully, some interesting characters and big plays shine through.
