Well… At least it\’s not blogger…..

Survivor is over….

Well… that’s it… Survivor ended last night… Here’s my season finale wrap-up…

First up, 10 minutes of what we’ve already seen… Time to go do something else for awhile and then watch it all on the DVR….

Oh yeah… the fire challenge… Last week Danielle & Cirie tied in the votes, so they have to build a fire and burn a rope with it… Both get fires, but Danille nurtures heres enough to actually burn something with it… Cirie goes home…

Next day, terry shows off his immunity idol that he had the whole time… then they get into a fishing competition- and they make me wonder… where’d they get the spear??? Didn’t Sally lose the fishing spear the first time it got taken out? Where did this one come from? How much off camera babying do these people get anyway?

REWARD CHALLENGE: WALL TO WALL
Survivors must race to the top of a three-story climbing wall using four individually-shaped pegs. First, they must make their way through a table maze. Once at the end of the maze, each will release a bag containing their first two pegs and move to a spinning wheel. Reading the clues, each must spin the wheel clockwise, counter-clockwise, and clockwise again like a combination lock to find the one bag that contains their final two pegs. With the help of the pegs, the players must get to the top of the wall and place their pegs in the proper slots, which will raise a flag. The first person to raise their flag wins the Reward: a high-protein meal and a cot to take back to camp. This Reward will give the winner a huge advantage in the upcoming Immunity Challenge.

Aras is in the lead almost all the way though this, but screws up while climbing the wall- He actually got real lucky, he fell at one point and got caught by his shirt on a peg… if he had gone down, it wouldn’t have ended as close as it did…

Anyway, Terry wins reward and gets a good meal and a cot to sleep on…

Next is the most boring part of every season… They get to go “reflect” on all the also-rans that got kicked out earlier… Fast-forward up until they set the skull on exile island on fire, and then get dissapointed by even that… I want a raging inferno… maybe some explosives thrown in or something… but it just burns… I did notice they burned all the torches this time… I guess they didn’t want some fisherman finding them and selling them on E-bay this time…?

IMMUNITY CHALLENGE: BALANCE OF POWER

Starting on the largest of a series of floating platforms, every fifteen minutes the Final Three will move to the next smaller platform. As the platforms get smaller, it will get tougher for the Survivors to maintain their balance. Only their feet can touch the platform. If their hands touch the platform or they fall off, they are eliminated. The last person standing wins Immunity and a guaranteed slot in the Final Two.

All is well until the third platform… Terry never gets his balance and falls in, and Danielle nods to Aras with one of those “I got yer back” type nods and Aras goes swimming too… Danielle wins immunity…

They both try to plaed their case to Danielle, but she decides she has a better chance beating Aras than Terry… little did she know that either way she was doomed…

When Danielle and Aras wake up, they find eggs, bacon, pancake batter, fruit, orange juice and champagne… They eat and then take a walk with their champagne… Buzzed off girlie drinks, they decide to walk out on the slippery rocks… and Aras goes down hard! Glass shatters and stabs him in the back and hand… Ouch! That looks painful.. He pulls a huge shard out of his back- he’s lucky he didn’t do more damage than he did… The medics come out and stitch him back together- so now Aras has the drunk stupid sympathy vote too…

at the final tribal council… we hope for the spirit of Sue Hawk to take over somebody and have them blast the final two, but it never really happens… Pretty boring question and answer session followed by the vote…

Then Jeff just walks off set and walks into the studio… Dang it Jeff… we want helicopters! We want jet skis! We want the big cheesefest that shows you coming back to the states with the votes!

Anyway- he reads the votes, and Aras wins. yippee.

Is it just me, or is Survivor getting more and more boring all the time? Anyway… That’s a wrap…

  1. I thought the season was fine…just this finale was boring! Danielle and Aras?? Who the h-e-double-hockey sticks was Danielle??

    Since the question/answer session was such a snoozefest, I think the contestants are FINALLY figuring this show out. IT IS ALL ABOUT LYING! Hello? They are all there for the money. No other reason. It’s not about integrity or honesty. It’s about stabbing everyone else in the back so you can win $1,000,000.

    I’ll still be watching during Survivor 36…and I’ll still be complaining about the same things.🙂

    Happy Monday, Gup.🙂

  3. I don’t know if the word is boring or we are just used to what happens now.
    I was wondering where the spears came from to?????? And why the heck weren’t they fishing everyday. I found it lacking something but then when I saw
    Shane, I cracked up and thought he is something else….those shirt cuffs must be the new rage.
