Survivor XVII Update... Finale Style...

Survivor XVI:



The End



Where in... they play the episode with the final immunity game, toss some loser that made it all the way to final four … only to LOSE. Oh, and then there’s the big “Walk of Shame” (this year it’s collecting wooden masks to burn at the end) which I totally fast forward through … because I cannot for the life of me figure out how they reach the conclusion that THREE HOURS of this stuff is reasonable? We get a winner, a runner up and we find out that Sugar drove everyone bonkers in camp.



The Sizzle
(aka "The Flashy Quick Review)
We finally get to say “THEY KILLED KENNY”. Dude… I’ve been waiting for that all season!!! :D So Camp Castration on Day 36 is all about shaking your head as Kenny makes like Bob should have thrown himself on a sword because Kenny wanted him to. The final five (Suzie, Kenny, Bob, Matty and Sugar) get all dressed up like Jungle Drag Queens (Jeff actually refers to Bob as looking all “Village People”) and sends them to a crazy challenge that pits Bob against Kenny with (of course) Bob winning. So they go to Fire Pit and fry up a little Kenny… because Sugar figured he was a bigger threat than Suzie. She was wrong… (no big surprise there) as tomorrow is the big boring day with the long walk etc. Final Four includes Suzie winning Immunity in a game of “Build a House of Cards”. It was a cool game and Sugar was golden, but all lose and wiggly… Bob was unable to perform, Matty was steady and firm, but Suzie… she just seemed to pull card-tower-fun out of nowhere and win. (all innuendo there was intentional). So Sugar gets the big idea that it’s better to put Bob and Mat together in a tie at Jeff’s fire pit. Bob is down with this… and immediately heads into the woods to practice building fires (tie breaker is typically a fire starter). Sure ‘nuf they get together with his Jeffy’ness, it’s a tie, and next thing you know Bob is facing off against Mat with a flint. Bob totally kicks ass. So Mat is gone and it’s now only Sugar, Bob and Suzie. While I spent the season saying “This is Sugar’s game”… this was only in my head - despite the fact that she was the catalyst behind every major dealio in the season. Nobody voted for her, even after what appeared to be a cool Jury Inquiry. The jury deal was cliché… with Randy being a massive dick head, Kenny continuing to be flummoxed by Bob not wanting to die in the game to save Kenny, and Sugar cries. Second Best Part? Had to be Corinne calling Sugar a waste of air and saying something like “I wish you had a hand full of anti-depressants so you’d be believable when you cry about your dead dad.” Sugar gave her the finger. Awesome. But BUT BUT BUT… the very best part was when Randy tried to corner each of them calling them names and asking them to suck his figurative cock… and Sugar just went ahead and told him (to the Jury, mind you) that he was a total ass. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA… it was rather priceless. :D Sadly the votes were split between Suzie and Bob with none for my little Sugar. The lions share go to Bob. He is the big money man this season.
Sugar looked pretty at the reunion show but, unsurprisingly, continues to appear mightily dippy. :)
See you next time… and thanks for reading.

You reading… (and especially you commenting) makes this worth doing. :)
