season 2, episode 9.  

of the five left I can’t figure out who’s gonna win.  probably the spaniard?  larry is a fucking psycho and probably beats his wife and I would hate to see him pull it off.  david seems like a decent guy but he can’t catch fish.  justin’s awkward as hell and could pull it off, I guess, but I don’t know what the hell he’s eating; I don’t remember any of his footage showing him with a fish or anything else, just him being a fucking weirdo.  nicole seems to be cruising but when I watched season 6 woniya mentioned something about a woman finally winning so I assume nicole taps out.  the spaniard is easily the most talented of the remaining people and I want to say he’ll do it but he’s spent like two weeks making a kayak instead of eating.  and the kayak looks amazing but doesn’t seem to be very stable, which sucks.

I’ve been really thinking about ways to cheat this show... so I assume they thoroughly check for anything hidden on your person before you are dropped in the bush.  but let’s say you ingest a GPS tracking device that stays with you for a day or two before you pass it.  you have a support team stationed a fair distance away with a crate full of high density rations and access to a helicopter and/or plane.  after you have been dropped off, on the first night of the competition, while that GPS tracker is still in your bowel, they determine your exact location and do a flyover around 2am and drop the crate attached to a parachute onto your beach.  you put the crate in a secure spot under a cover of brush and make sure it never, ever enters the lens of any camera you have with you.  then you just play along and act like you’re scavenging for roots and mushrooms and struggling to fish all the while you are getting 2,000 calories a day and dominating your competition.  also off camera, you dig a huge hole and make sure to bury any and all evidence that shows you cheated.  then, after vanquishing your foes, you collect the prize money and spend your days sitting on a beach, earning 20%...

Glad we're using plenty of spoilers and identifying seasons/episodes. Working through Patagonia now.

Bonus strategy, Barbara parachutes in with the supplies.  Though you'd have to hide her when the crew comes to tell you you've won.

so I’ve finished seasons 6, 1, and 2.  which should I watch next?  

It's kind of hard to say w/o giving reasons/spoilers.

I liked 4 because, IIRC, that's the one with pairs.  I also liked 5 (I think that was Mongolia) because of who won.

Just finished season 3, Patagonia. Not happy with the results. The producers really gamed this to get the winner they wanted.

@futureman

BTW, Mongolia (Season 5) consisted of returning players.  So, you might want to watch whatever you've skipped between 1 and 4 before tuning into 5.

Didn’t the contestants from season 4(which I skipped) that are in Mongolia only last like 6 days combined.? I don’t think you Need to watch s4 to watch s5. I’ll get back to 4 but I watched 1-2-3 and wasn’t ready for another Vancouver island

 

Mongolia so far is interesting to say the least

You may be right.  I was looking at it from the standpoint that, in watching 5 first, you'd be spoilered by knowing four that wouldn't have won season 4.  Am I making sense?  It's 4AM.

Watching season 1 now and half the people didn't make it a week.  The cop was scared shitless that he was going to be eaten by something.

That was crazy.  When he got there, he compared his job to living in the wilderness because he has to work with "wild animals" all the time.  Then he saw some bears or heard some wolves or whatever and immediately called for rescue because he was terrified and didn't have his sidearm.

I think there was another guy that season that said he felt naked without his guns, and he tapped out after a night or two of hearing wolves growling and howling.

I'm not going to judge, as I'd probably shit my pants if I heard wolves howling near my camp all night, but I also don't think I'm Billy Badass.

I was deer hunting in a blind one evening and I had unknowingly parked the 4 wheeler by a coyote den.  It's unnerving as hell walking by all that howling in the dark, and I was carrying a rifle.  I can't imagine being unarmed in the middle of nowhere with wolves howling.

Same here.  I would have been happy with either of the last 2.  Glad 3rd place didn't win.

Just finished S6.  Solid show.  

If I had a year, I still wouldn’t be able to build a shelter half as nice as the one Woniya built.

yeah she was definitely tough and talented.  jordan was just a force of nature out there, though.  field dressing that moose, killing the wolverine, making his own gill net and hacking through the ice to get it in the water.  guy was amazing.

I just started watching it last night.  Season 6.  How many fucking survivor shows have people eating rodents or stupid shit (raw) only to get sick?   Guy from Lubbock had a Mike Leech style of speaking.  Wish he would have lasted.

yeah the muskrat and the bad fish roe were just bad bears.  most of what gets consumed in this series doesn’t fuck the contestants up too much.

Callie looks so much like my college girlfriend that it's freaking me out.  I mean, absolute dead ringer.

Funny side story.  My team won a Tri-Delt 3-on-3 tourney.  One of the prizes was two free roller blade rentals from some place near campus.  Our first date was a roller blade date.  She was from California and used to roller blade to school; I hadn't put anything remotely similar on since 6th grade roller skate Friday night.  Anyway, she comes flying by me somewhere between Jester and Memorial Stadium.  For some reason, I tried to reach out and stop her.  I ended up clotheslining the shit out of her.  Think: Tony Brackens v. the Tech punter.  She bled all over the place.  Not my smoothest moment, but she forgave me and we dated for a couple of years.

Crap.  There are 2 more episodes.  I'm good for ep 10; however, we're switching to YouTubeTV next week, and I don't believe they have the History Channel.

They had one of those popups saying that a mouse is 30 calories.  You waste more than that setting up the trap, checking it and skinning the damn thing.  Seems like a less than optimal strategy.

The finale will be on the 20th.  My DirectTV will be gone on the 17th.  YouTubeTV doesn't have the History Channel.

I feel like they are manipulating the outcome with the medical extractions. The person they just yanked was going strong and eating well, but they pulled the BMI card. I guess the point is if you don't start out obese you won't be seeing the end.
