R18, there is at least one gay man and possibly others.

The obviously gay one is a black actor from Richmond, VA. Verges into “Yassss!” territory pretty often so I expect some good quotes from him.

The one I have strong suspicions about is an Indian IT guy from where I forget. It’s unlikely he’s out as an Indian immigrant to America but he extremely expressive and makes these very dramatic faces while gesturing expressively with his hands in interviews.

There is a young white Alex Keaton-type law student from Manchester-By-The-Sea, MA who reads as gay but has a girlfriend. Huge Taylor Swift fan. I think he’s cute as a button and if he weren’t a 26 year-old Harvard grad I think he was just struggling to find the courage and or was from an unwelcoming environment. I’ve checked out his Instagram and he has a very handsome dad and they make a very Nifty father and son, if you get the reference.

The ostensibly straight science teacher had a weird moment with the black gay actor which made me wonder a little about him.

Jelinsky was an obvious first vote. What an idiot.

As soon as Jelinsky started referring to himself as a Survivor legend, I figured he was a goner. And the edit of Jess scrambling not to get the votes, while Jelinsky was getting his hair did was also telling.

You should listen to Jelinsky’s interview with Rob Cesternino on Rob Has a Podcast. He’s very confident and thought he was a real threat. He even claimed it was Q’s idea to quit the Sweat penalty task, not his. Rob, who’s always very respectful to the players, wondered aloud after the interview was over and Jelinsky was gone, why he threw the hourglass then and not Q?

Is it that the producers needed to fill out the two hours or was their some hidden reason they included the banal exchanges between the two women, Liz & Mo, from the different tribes who each sat out the challenge? I don't recall seeing such banter shown in prior seasons.

So far this season has been a snooze for me but that always happens when one tribe continually loses so you’re stuck focusing on the same people week after week until they either shuffle tribes or merge.

Charlie is absolutely adorable. Q is a butterface but that body! Bhanu was surprisingly stacked as well but he was so nuts I couldn’t find him attractive

Yes, R46, Q and Bhanu both have amazing physiques, and I think they're both reasonably attractive, facially. Loved Bhanu's body hair. He might be a good, loyal friend in real life or too much to handle, it's hard to tell. Scolding God for getting him on the show but not letting him go far was a bit much.

Personally I prefer Hunter overall of this season's men, and he actually seems like a good person outside of the game.

While it’s apparent that Q thinks he’s a mob boss in his confessionals, I’m not so sure that’s as evident to the others.

Assuming this link is accurate, Q describes himself as:

[quote] Name three of your favorite hobbies: Fishing, riding four-wheelers/jet skis, building houses

Also, believe it or not, the same things my six year-old nephew told me when I asked him what he wanted to be he became a big boy!

[quote]List three adjectives that best describe yourself: Brave, polite, proud

See Cub Scout nephew referenced above.

[quote] How would your friends describe you? I think my friends would describe me as the crazy, risk-taking friend. They would probably add that I am the luckiest person they know. Most importantly, they would describe me as someone they can count on.

That girl that I always ended up behind in the cafeteria line in high school wrote something very similar in the back of my yearbook. She also added, “Stay Sweet” written in particularly flowery script which took up almost a quarter of prime real estate in the autograph pages of that yearbook.


[quote] What risks have you taken in your life to make a change for the better, even if the outcome wasn’t planned? I started taking risks early in life. Being 1 of 17 kids you have to take risks. Biggest risk that changed my life for better would have to be quitting my job to start my career in real estate.

I had a friend named Julie who had this same story. She thought she had a great job, but she got approached in a Food Lion one night by an Amway salesman and three months later she’d quit drinking, quit her job, and got into to selling Rainbow Vacuum Clearers, which, if you had a good doctor you could get a prescription for and count that $1800 vacuum cleaner off on your taxes as a medical expense!

And then she died.

[quote] What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Being the first person in my entire family to graduate college.

Oh my Dear Lord!

[quote] What is something we would never know from looking at you? 1) I can eat 2 boxes of pizza in one sitting by myself. 2) That I can swim. 3) I am a joy to be around (what people tell me).

1)I don’t know what a box of pizza really is, but I have a sneaking suspicion it has something to do with strained pasta 2) Racist 3)No one actually has ever told him what a joy he was to be around and if they did see #2

[quote] What past Survivor would you play the game most like? Bits and pieces from a lot of players.

Translate: I applied for Big Brother, Batchelor/Bachelorette, Amazing Race with my college teammate, and whatever this show is, but I’m really happy to be here Phil!

This guy was a middling D1 athlete. He doesn’t know anything but team. He thinks he’s the quarterback now, but he’s just still an OL. Their building him up in the edit because they finally got a fit black guy past the merge but he ain’t winning.

I liked Q up until the last few episodes, but this has been quite the fall from grace. It was stupid enough to judge people as threats based on playing hide and seek and just came across as vindictive to claim they had made a huge mistake by essentially beating him in the game.

But to attempt to self-eliminate when the wind isn't blowing your way is pathetic. He revealed himself as a petty man-child. It's hilarious that the tribe didn't let him go, though. I think that's the first time that's happened, isn't it?

by Anonymousreply 69April 18, 2024 9:57 AM

I think their keeping Q was a good strategic move. He is no longer a threat as he now comes off a volatile and unstable - qualities tribe mates do not like.

He will make it to the Final 3, and get zero votes. As he pleads his case, the other two will remind the jury (as if they will need a reminder), that he asked to be voted off, in essence quitting. Juries do not award quitters.

by Anonymousreply 70April 18, 2024 5:54 PM

The entire episode was batshit crazy. Q's logic with the hide and seek game and him blowing up tribal council were both a giant Dumpster fire. Q and Venus are both horrible players who will never win, but they're good TV.

I wish they would show more of the discussion that actually determines tribal council voting. It may ruin the "surprise," but there are times when the viewer doesn't understand why the voting goes as it does. Last night, was everyone in on the vote to get out Hunter by splitting the votes, and only Q was clueless, or did the four who voted for Hunter do so in secret, confident that the other four were set on voting Q out? It will no doubt be revealed in the next episode, but the opacity at times like this can be frustrating. Did the entire tribe hoodwink Hunter, or only half the tribe?

Q and Venus have no chance. Charlie and Kenzie are getting good edits, but neither has done anything that screams "winner." Ben, Liz, Maria and Tiffany are all just kind of there.

Even before the reward nonsense Maria was losing the plot. Don't brag about the great move you made to the tribe, talk about sticking your head above the parapet. Save that for the camera crew. Always downplay your part in moves until you're talking to the jury.

r123 That was ridiculous. She picked Q who had just eaten Applebees the day before instead of the girl allergic to everything who had not eaten in weeks. Even the other players were like "I'm out pick Liz, she needs it" and still she made them play Rock Paper Scissors. At that point, I would not have played called her a fucking cunt and said "Everyone knows this is her number one." This season is full of shitty players all going home with idols in their pockets. Q is going to win this thing. He begged people to write his name down and still no one sent him home. He is the Trump of Survivor. He could shit in the rice and no one would get rid of him

I am for Q to win now as much as I hate him. The rest of these people are pathetic. I am tired of the woman whining about nothing to eat because she is allergic to everything. You knew that and yet you still went so that is on you. The rest are just stupid, afraid of someone who has an idol. If they have an idol and you know it just vote for them one vote to get out someone else.

At this point, Q winning wouldn't be the worst outcome. As long as it isn't Liz or Maria. Or even Ben, who is just kind of there. Charlie, Q, and Kenzie being final three would be interesting. The editing hasn't really favored anyone to win yet.

This has managed to be a strong season, despite the pre-merge being The Bhanu Meltdown Show. One of the reasons is that the advantages/twists (idols, extra votes, etc.) haven't really influenced the game. It feels like an older season of Survivor.

I think Charlie WILL ditch Maria next episode. He's playing a very astute social game imo and he's won 2 challenges, enough for a good 'resume' but not too many to be a target.

However the time commitment of the contestants for Big Brother is much longer, normally at least 100 days, all the other shows only take a little over a month of the contestants time. They are basically sent to prison, with a bunch of annoying people there is no getting away from with no TV, internet, radio or reading material. While the ratings for BB aren't as great it provides three nights of programing hence three nights of commercials and one would assume more profits for CBS. Plus the $750,000 is an increase from $500,000 just a couple of seasons ago.

It's true, I'm always skeptical of people who have allergies that prevent them from eating huge swaths of healthy food. I once had a friend who was allergic "to all things green" plus most fruits and vegetables of other colors. She used to say salads would kill her, and about the only vegetables that were safe for her to eat were potatoes, carrots, and onions. I rolled my eyes at her pronouncements for years.

But just like Liz, she could shovel down just about any junk fast food without a problem.

Survivor compensates all contestants, or castaways, who make it to the final tribal council. Typically, each receives around $10,000 for the reunion show. The third-place winner can tack on an additional $85,000 (before taxes), with the second-place adding an extra $100,000.

'Survivor 46' Runner-Up Charlie Davis Says His Relationship with Maria Permanently Changed After Her Jury Vote

The law student also talks how a last-minute conference by the jury led him to believe he'd win the game.

Being in the middle is a position Charlie Davis knows "All Too Well." From Day 1 to 26, his game was all about keeping options open, making people feel "You Belong With Me." One of the contestants in the chaos of Survivor 46 was having Charlie and Maria Shrime Gonzalez as the primary decision makers, as they made their "Wildest Dreams" come true pulling off some massive blindsides over that "Cruel Summer." But the two were aware that Matsing had already been Mat-sung, and took shots at each other. Fortunately, Charlie had taken a "Fortnight" to insulate himself with allies, so when Maria struck, he could simply respond, "Look What You Made Me Do." Given his strategic strengths, Charlie hoped the jury could "Shake It Off" with their blindsides and write him a million-dollar check with a "Blank Space" for his name. Unfortunately, his game behind the curtain game back to bite him, and they were not "Enchanted" enough with his arguments to give him the win. {More at link.}

I finished watching the show and want to add some thoughts:

I LOVED seeing Liz abandon her game to help Kenzie beat Maria! I can’t recall seeing that before, especially so late in a season. Kudos to Liz.

I feel Charlie played the best overall game. Kenzie did play an excellent game, but I think her votes were mostly due to her getting to the end when she was on such a disaster of a tribe to start. Plus, her financial situation and likability played a big role.

Charlie was clearly devastated, but stayed classy to the end. His girlfriend has a gem of a man.

Maria was really built up when she was voted out. The other 3 praised her game prowess and how unbeatable she was. Everyone loved her and commented on what a great person she is. Then she turns on Charlie and reveals she’s a kind of a bitch that wouldn’t even throw an olive branch to him in her speech to Jeff. She came off badly in the final tribal council.

This has been a great season. There’s a ton of life left in the show!

Not a surprising end to the season. The only real shocker was Ben making it to the final three. He didn't do anything the entire season except have panic attacks and, yeah, he won the final immunity challenge.

If Maria had voted for Charlie, Ben would have cast the tie-breaker and according to his exit press, he would have voted for Charlie. During the reunion, you can almost see Charlie realizing this with the Maria discussion.

Speaking of the reunion, it wouldn't be the worst idea to cut it down to only about 15 minutes. Read the votes, give the winner and the others in the final three a few minutes to discuss the season and then run the promo for the next season. Trying to turn it into a celebration of the season (or whatever) is a mistake. This season's reunion also showed that Jeff and the producers blew it on anticipating the moments people would talk about. Instead of discussing Q blowing up tribal council, we got a segment on Tevin and Soda singing and Charlie dancing. No one cared about any of those moments.

Pretty good season overall. Idols and advantages never really coming into play was a surprise. I don't want to see either Maria or Liz again. Maria is a phony asshole. Liz has major "I'm the main character" syndrome.
