So let me get this straight. The contenders on Survivor (Anywhere) cannot eat except what they catch in the sea or off of a coconut tree? Because now I've watched three season's of this show and this factoid is not made entirely clear.
Sure I understand the meaning of "survive" but I also know we live in a litigious society and should just one of those contenders drop from hunger they'd be millionaires. Yeah they sign contracts but contracts signed by those who sign away their very lives are usually regarded with skepticism.
And I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY THREW OUT CARTER!
I mean Carter gave up a meal for his own self during the auction episode to bring back beans and rice for the tribe! Next chance they get they boot him off the island!
Well all of these sorts of competitive reality shows have this sort of template, no? I always smile when one contender sidles up to another and offers to form an "alliance". Every chance the contenders get to speak to the audience through camera solo vignettes the alliance members will tell us how they fooled the other members….it's part of the charm I suppose.
But dag, Carter gave up some fine food to bring home food for the tribe. Booting him seems downright mean.
