GIVE RUPERT THE OTHER MILLION!

<stumpspeech>

Well, I don't know who else was watching the Survivor finale, but that twist at the end was quite useful for one thing.

IMHO, Rupert should've collected his seven-figure payday long ago. He's just always been screwed over and all of those other things I made in the who will win post.

So now CBS is giving away another million bucks to any of the All-Stars. And I know you're gonna vote for Rupert, riiiiight?

Do it at www.cbs.com.

Nope, I'm voting for Richard Hatch.

On the plus side, I had Amber winning form the start, and she won, making me 2 for 8 on picking the winner.

I also picked Amber to win before this episode, but man, too bad she just got taken, she's hot.

Plus, anyone amazed at the amount of people who got married/proposed/hooked up after this show? Ethan, Jenna, Rob, Amber, that other Girl with Ethan, and even Hatch!

Re: GIVE RUPERT THE OTHER MILLION!

I didn't get to watch the final episode, didn't see that it was on at a different time. I was pulling for Rupert so much, he just has to get his million.

Re: GIVE RUPERT THE OTHER MILLION!

I have just one gripe with the whole show: HOW IN THE BLUE HELL DID AMBER WIN SEXIEST FEMALE?!?!? I swear, that had to be fixed. Hell, I personally don't even find her remotely attractive. Can someone please explain this to me?

Personally, I think she's got some great eyes, and I like that, so I can't disagree. The thing is, how did Rob get so lucky!

Re: GIVE RUPERT THE OTHER MILLION!

I dunno--perhaps CBS is planning a reality version of the odd couple?

Personally, I found Jenna Morasca more attractive--although I'm also fans of Colleen and Elisabeth (from Borneo and Australia, respectively). But I digress.

She was the most recent, so everyone remembered her best.

And as for rob, the people who win are the ones good enough that they aren't voted out early, but bad enough to vote the deserving people out.

Re: GIVE RUPERT THE OTHER MILLION!

i think alicia should have won sexiest female .. but then again she is my favourite female player of all time ...

and for the other million .. i really wish it went to boston rob .. i know he doesnt need it, but he was by far the best survivor ...

and for hookups .. i was very surprised at that also, but i guess it helped that most of them were friends and everyone knew background on the other people before the show ...
