Part of me thinks the reason Michael Skupin was cast on “Survivor: Phillipines” was to get me to shut up. After all, I’ve been nagging Jeff Probst about it since “Survivor: Gabon.” But, the rest of me knows he was brought back because he had one of the show’s great unfinished stories.
I spoke with the sole Survivor the morning after her big win and had a chance to ask about breaking her alliance with Malcolm, when she knew Lisa’s secret, and what she intends to do with her million-dollar check.
Last Week: Malcolm, Skupin, and Denise promised to take each other to the final three, Denise learned her neck was very tasty, and the person voted out of the game was named Abi.
I spoke with Abi-Maria the morning after her elimination to find out what happened to the sweet girl I met before the game, how she tried to convince everyone that’s she was the perfect person to take to the end, and which player she still has issues with…
Last Week: Abi found herself without any backing, Lisa’s brother thought her strategic game was lacking, and some blonde guy the producers claim has been on the show all along was sent packing.
Last Week: Kat and I both nailed it. We both had Carter in the sixth position. So, the current score as we head into the final round is Team Kat: 128, Team Awesome Thunder: 129.
I spoke with Carter the morning after his elimination to find out about the off-camera moves he was making, his relationship with a potential MLB Hall of Famer, and some negative accusations that were made by former members of Kalabaw…
Last Week: Actually, the less we talk about last week the better. I miss me some Penner.
Last Week: Kat’s still cutting down on what was once a monster lead. She had Penner in spot six while I had him in spot five. So, the current score is Team Kat: 122, Team Awesome Thunder: 123.
I spoke to Jonathan the morning after his elimination and had a chance to learn about what he was thinking when he turned down the alliance, why nobody tried to outbid Abi, and how his time in the Philippines will affect his “Survivor” legacy.
