I'm having a streak of writers' block and it's making me crazy. I still have to post about GRL but the words just aren't there either so I've been catching up on the shows I taped while I was gone.
I don't think it's any big secret that I'm a reality show junkie - from So You Think You Can Dance to Hell's Kitchen to Big Brother - I like them all but I think my first fave was and still is Survivor. Hello, my name is K-lee and i'm a Survivor-aholic.
I've been watching from the very first season which has spanned 12 years and 25 seasons. I've always had a favourite player of course and yeah, they've always been dudes and a lot of the time, probably hot dudes - okay almost all the time, in my opinion. But I don't intentionally search for the babe in the show each season - it just naturally happens. ;)
So in between organizing my WIPs, deleting emails and generally getting frustrated that Ali is not speaking to me at the moment - he can be such a bitch - I decided to share my fave player in each season.
Wow, that was more work than I thought over two days but believe it or not, it sparked some creativity and I've managed to write a little here and there. Goes to show that sometimes trying too hard is exactly what hinders the whole process - any process really. It also shows that my brain needs something to do when it seems to be running on empty and searching for lovely boys is a very good way to challenge it. I hope you enjoy my little trip down Survivor memory lane.
And now that my brain is firing on a few more cylinders than it has been for the past week, I'm going to do a give-away. Leave your name, email address and a nice little comment for a chance to win an ebook copy Trick of Dreams which comes out on Halloween.
Misha hates Halloween. Nothing good has ever come of it even though it was the day he was born. He spends his days at a thankless job and fills his nights turning tricks. His only reprieves from his miserable life are his best friend and the alluring dreams that come to him night after night.
On his first Halloween as a free man, a string of strange occurrences only firm up his position on the dreaded day. But the kindness of a stranger and a gift from his best friend send Misha's mind reeling with flashes of his dreams and what was once unrecognizable suddenly becomes a little more familiar.
Now on to my Survivor faves
Season 25 - Philippines
Flowing hair, cute smile, sense of humour and so hot.
From 18 to 11 people down and he's still around - keeping my fingers crossed.
Season 24 - One World
He was voted out 7th so I didn't get to enjoy his as long as I would have liked.
But since he's a model, his pictures are everywhere.
Season 23 - South Pacific
Ozzy Lusth (he's been on my blog before :D)
Returning player who had a rough time this round but went from voted out first
& heading to Redemption Island to 4th place.
Season 22 - Redemption Island
He was so adorable and had a really hard road.
I do love it when they go in all clean and pretty and end up stunningly scruffy.
I have to post my 2nd favourite because he's one of my fave all-times.
He won this season.
Season 21 - Nicaragua
Jud Birza (Fabio)
He wasn't the sharpest knife in the drawer but sharp enough to win the season.
They nicknamed him Fabio and he was pretty damn funny.
Season 20 - Heroes vs. Villains
I have to go with one of each.
Hero - Colby Donaldson (you'll see him later too)
Season 19 - Samoa
One of those who went in squeaky-clean and ended up scruffy-hot
Season 18 - Tocantins
Sweet cattle rancher who took home the prize with a 7-0 vote
Season 17 - Gabon
This season wasn't very memorable for me.
Season 16 - Micronesia
(Fans vs Faves)
Fave - Ozzy Lusth
Shorter hair, climbs tree like a monkey - hot and sweet
Fan - Jason Siska
So pretty but naive
Season 15 - China
22 year-old gay, flight attendant - so cute
I also loved Erik Huffman *meow*
Season 14 - Fiji
Season 13 - Cook Islands
Um... he looks familiar (poor baby came 2nd)
Season 12 - Panama
I can't remember who I liked better so I'll post both
Aras Baskauskas (winner of this season)
Season 11 - Guatemala
Bobby Jon Drinkard
He was definitely scruffier and not so naive in his second round
Season 10 - Palau
Bobby Jon Drinkard
I have him twice but he's not one of the heavy hitters -
I just always loved him in both his seasons
Season 9 - Vanuatu
This wasn't a memorable season for me but I liked the winner
And John Kenney was not wearing this on the show ;)
Season 8 - Survivor All-Stars
This is a hard season - both my faves Colby, Ethan and Boston Rob.
So I'll skip it.
Season 7 - Pearl Islands
He was so sweet and loveable - you just had to cheer him on
Season 6 - The Amazon
Another meh season for me but
Daniel Lue was sweet - didn't last long.
Season 5 - Thailand
Hot head, didn't last long but he had an awesome look (and tattoos)
Season 4 - Marquesas
Boston Rob's first season - he didn't do well.
Season 3 - Africa
So beautiful and sweet-natured.
He's beaten cancer twice and just keeps on truckin'.
Season 2 - Australian Outback
Yes sir - an awesome country boy.
Season 1 - Borneo
To be perfectly honest, I don't remember rooting for a hottie in the first season.
But my faves were
(yep, I loved that crotchety old guy)
And the man everyone loves to hate
I loved how he and Rudy were a team even though Rudy
was completely freaked out by Richard's gayness. :)
