World’s Apart is done and dusted, and while my body is ready for Survivor: Cambodia, I really should say a few things about tonights final.
First off, whether you love or hate Mike, winning five immunities is impressive. Out of 30 seasons it’s only been done four other times. Should winning his way to the end lessen his win? Nope. He still mades moves (e.g. forcing the tie) while not being in control. And he went the hero way of bring the worthy opponent to the end and still winning. This guy is a lock for when they next do Heroes vs Villains. To be honest Mike had votes from Hali, Joe, Jenn, and Shirin locked up so it really didn’t matter who he took.
Our runners up placers are polar opposites. Mama C is one of the few runners up where she would of been more then deserving for the title of sole survivor. Will on the other hand joins a club nobody wants to be a part of. The club includes the likes of Sherri (Caramoan), Susie (Gabon), Albert (South Pacific), Cassandra (Fiji), Becky (Cook Islands), Katie (Palau), and Mick (Samoa). All these people had no chance at winning the game, and well did very little in getting themselves to the end. Others dragged them there. As Shirin perfectly put it, Will was a dead fish.
The reunion was disappointing due to it being one of the shortest. I get that it was due to the cast announcement, but it still sucks. I laughed at Dan saying “their throwing me under the bus” as Jeff was about to play the raw footage. Dan they are only doing that after you went about bad mouthing the show and editing team. In regards to Dan I feel that he 100% does feel bad about things he said and Shirin accepts that, on the other hand Will tried to be like sorry but… There never needs to be a but.
So there we have it. 20 former contestants are heading out in the next few days to Cambodia for a second chance. I had a total Ralph from The Simpsons when T-Bird didn’t make the cut. My heart was breaking for her. Same with Shane Powers. Guy has been messed with enough times.
Well that’s it for another Survivor season. During the off season I will be posting weekly Survivor: What If’s, where I will change one vote in a season and see how I think it will impact the rest of the game. If that interests you, keep on coming back to ummjayden.com every week.
