Dear future Survivor Contestant,
After 32 seasons, when will you learn that a key skill to bring with you is how to make fire?
Let’s see, you need to start a fire first when you first get to your camp. Not only does the first person to make fire get early “hero” status but by making this happen, you get to eat cooked rice vs crawling critters. (If this isn’t reason enough, I don’t know what is)
But let’s learn from our final 4 contestants shall we?
Ok, you are 1 spot away from final 3. Usually by now you have spent 33-35 days living like hell for your shot at a million dollars. And if you are any good, odds are the others will try and get rid of your butt so there is a good chance you will be voted out.
So why is learning how to make fire important?
Just ask Cydney on season 32. She was well on her way to possibly winning the money (and my top pick next to Audrey). The top 2 deserving folks in my opinion. So I wasn’t surprised they had to square off. When it was a tie, what did they have to do?
Oh yea, make fire!
This is what Survivor does. They have for the previous 31 seasons so why would they change now?
If I was headed into the top 4 and I knew my ass might be on the chopping block, especially in a season of blindsides, you can bet your bottom dollar that my ass would be building fires all over the island!
At last, as much as I want to go tsk tsk tsk to Cydney, she isn’t alone. It has happened in the past. The loser being those that never bothered to learn how to start a fire before going on Survivor!
So, I implore all you future contestants, do me a favor. LEARN to MAKE FIRE! With or without flint. Use your eyeglasses, use glass, use your x-ray vision, I don’t care. Just learn!
I still love you Cydney. I liked the others but you and Audrey owned the twists and turns this season and one of you should have won. I was sad when you had to face off making fire, but I was even more sad that ironically, your bid for the $1,000,000 went up in flames (or at least the lack of them).
It was a great season. Some great moves. Well played and I’ll be back for season 33 of Survivor. Like many others, I’m always amazed and addicted to the giant fishbowl of personalities and really enjoy the fun of watching the great game players.
Just do me a favor. Just one word. FIRE!
For those of you that don’t watch Survivor… What???? You are missing a great show that just gets better as more folks learn to play the game. The true players who love the game are making so interesting. They just need to learn to make fire. LOL
