I hate the show, Survivor. Further, I am convinced that the only reason anyone watches the show is because it is quite simply the show that comes right before CSI. No one really likes reality TV at all. If you were to move its timeslot and I bet would most definitely fail in one season. That is the slot they have been in, and but by the grace of God or Neilsen, they have never had to move from that slot. This is why they have had something like 19 seasons!
Let’s face it. No one really likes or even gives a shit about any of these people. They are mean, conniving, annoying, assholes, the lot of them. These are the people at work or your neighbors or people in society that you LOVE to hate. Admit it. If you were on the show personally, you’d probably stab about 80% of the ones you were stuck on there with in the head seven or eight times while they slept and steal their stuff with absolutely no semblance of guilt or remorse whatsoever. In the season where they went to Africa, I swear to God I was cheering for the LIONS, shouting at the top of my lungs, “Come on! Just eat those f***iing people!! Please!”
Think about it. There are no redeeming qualities whatsoever in that show or the people on it other than the fact we have to tolerate it in order to get to something we were wanting to watch in the first place. Maybe it’s better that the lions didn’t eat one of them. While the visual appeal might have been quite appealing, I doubt very sincerely it would have been good for the lions. But I will confess, I do have fantasies of getting an entire pride, caging them up and flying them to wherever the lateset contestants are and turning the felidae lose on them! Ah, the screams of sheer terror would be music to my ears!
