Survivor: Tornadoes! Friday, October 19, 2007

Posted by ladyandrea in Lady Andrea, reality TV, survivor.

So, some pretty nasty storms blew through northwest Indiana tonight (or “Michiana,” as the locals call it.  Drives me fucking nuts.)   There were driving winds, tons of rain, golfball-sized hail, and tornadoes.  I spent a good chunk of the evening in the basement of the dorm with 200 girls all huddled around the TV hoping the news would go back to “Grey’s Anatomy.”  Kill me.  That show blows now.  My TIVO only recorded intermittent “Survivor,” so here’s what I got:

Based on previews and the fact that people were all mixed around, the tribes swapped members.  I believe Fighting Tiger got Aaron and James and Flying Dragon got Sherea and Frosti.  Based on a clip of tribal, it seems like Jaime and PG threw the challenge so they could vote off a newbie.  That……really does not sit well with me.  That kind of sucks.  And based on the exit interview, Aaron went home.  That’s all I got.  Ya know what I don’t got?  Tivo of “Survivor,” “CSI” or “The Office.”  BAH!

I grew up in Michiana and always hated that too. And now, I live in Illiana – ugh, which also got a fair share of storm action. But nothing like up north. I guess a tornado touched down east of you in Napanee. Anyhow, you got the gist of it. Some thoughts to add:

When they got their note telling them to select 2 people to add to their tribe, Tiger members were in awe. “We’ll have a huge advantage on them with 7 vs 5”! They never even considered that it might be an exchange. Which made them look dumb. But no, dumb they weren’t. IF their assumptions about this switch and eventual merge are correct, they are sitting in the cat-bird seat (whatever the hell that phrase means). They easily knocked off Aaron and were open about the fact that James is next.

I feel a little sorry for James, who apparently thought simple hard work could win the game. His niave, shocked frustation was evident.

Here’s hoping the producers have another twist in mind, or the next few weeks are going to be a huge bore while the original Tiger members waltz.

CBS’s website has full episodes if you desire to catch up.

No Spoilers! Seriously, we had tornadoes touch down near East Lansing also (all over mid-Michigan, actually), so I got a 1-hour DVR of the Emergency Action System. Luckily, CBS has some of their network shows On-Demand with Comcast.

I grew up in Syracuse, on Lake Wawasee and went through the outbreak in 1974. Looks like there’s quite a mess up there. Same Storms rolled through Tippecanoe County last night and we got near 100 MPH winds and saw a funnel cloud and the sirens were going off.
