Honestly I really think that survivor last night was fixed.

Maybe not the actual winner, but the way that the votes came out 3-3, that was pure cheese.

And when Colby threw his log off the cliff and the camera just happened to be right there and it didnt even make a splash!!!!

I think that was the worst 2 hours on TV ever. I love the show, but that was aweful.

Some CBS exec probably stacked the votes inside the urn thingy to raise the level of suspense.

No doubt they stacked the votes in the container to make it come out 3-3 before the final vote was revealed, but obviosuly none of the jury members went, "Hey! I didn't see my handwriting in there!"

And about the camera being right where Colby's idol splashed, there have been several times where things were refilmed for staging like that. Like the rice canister floating in the water, etc.

I read that if you analyze Liz's writing of her
vote, she clearly makes a 'C' motion with her wrist.
Then on the unveiling ceremony, when asked who
voted for Tina, she really wasn't sure. Sounds hokey
to me. (They say it was Tina).
It probably WAS rigged (MB appealing to older
demographic as well as women in general) but it
doesn't matter cause Colby is gonna make millions
selling Pontiacs and Bud Light. Tina will go back
to stealing husbands and lying to her friends and
will disappear into the woodwork.

Stupid question - I must have missed the vote tally, because I don't know who voted for whom? Anyone got a breakdown of the final vote?

Did anybody notice during the reunion show that Deb looked like she was ready to put a gun in her mouth?

No, that is not funny but she looked like an emotional wreck.

It just goes to show that if you live your life like a Jerry Springer show then you might not want be forced in the limelight otherwise by joining a reality show.

Hey, I guess that is what she could do next... get on Jerry Springer and talk about how emotional that one day away from her son/lover was.

That final show was so cheesy I was half-expecting Rich to show up and hand his tiara over to Tina.

No, I think Jeff actually flew around in the helicopter for four months straight with the vote urn sealed in his lap the whole time...

Of course the counting of the voted was rigged!!! You know that they read them ahead of time and ordered them to try to create some suspense! If the first four votes Jeff pulled out read Tina, Tina, Tina, Tina - where's the suspense in that?

It's funny that people who watch the shows are JUST noticing that they rig the vote counts. Every single show they have it coming down to the last vote if the person is only off by one. Heck, I was surprised when there were two Tinas in a row instead of going Tina, Colby, Tina, Colby, Tina, Colby, Tina like they usually do.

And I don't think they changed the votes, but I bet they told the people to fake like they were going to write a different letter than they were to throw off audiences.

The only thing that made me mad was the local news cut it off before they ran the credits and as a result I didn't see any of the promised footage from the first show of the next season. What did I miss?

Did you miss part of the show? She said she was a wreck and didn't even want to go on the show.

No offense to those of you that love the show, but I think the whole thing is fixed all the time. I'm sorry, but from what I've seen the whole thing looks staged.

I must have missed something, but what do you mean by the Tina comments, lying and stealing hubbies?


thanks,

Sam
