Others are everyday girl-next-door good-looking, but watch out-- if a hurricane just so happens to blow through the neighborhood, they'll be the ones chopping down trees, making fires, and hunting down food for the whole block.
Criteria: While the women on the list are obviously all extremely attractive, other criteria were involved.
Mild-mannered (probably a bit too much to put up with Russell) Jaison.
2Insufferables (-1 each): There are people who are very big fans of the over-the-top, self-conscious villainy of Russell Hantz. Not when said villainy is accomplished with all the subtlety of a water buffalo, thus making it utterly impossible for him to ever win a jury vote. While watching Russell get beat was certainly satisfying, that's not the same as having a satisfying winner.
So to lose James, in the manner they did, especially after he had already been medevaced once before (in Fans vs Favorites), well this was a particularly crushing blow.Many fared extremely well on the game of survivor, outwitting, outplaying, and even outlasting the competition.In addition, intelligence, stamina, ingenuity, community involvement, personality, personal fortitude and inner strength were all considered.There are a bunch of Survivor moments out there that, when I first saw them on TV, I immediately thought "Yep, that's going to go on the Funny 115 one day." There are only a handful of moments, however, where when I first saw them, I immediately knew they were going to wind up in the Top 20. This is one of those rare "Holy shit, I am rolling around on the floor because I am laughing so hard.And then there are moments like this one-- the Amanda Run-- which were so funny the first time I saw them, that I didn't even have a chance to think about what placement they were going to have on the Funny 115. Please rewind that and tell me that happened for real" entries.Even without makeup and hairdryers, the women of Survivor still manage to make living on a deserted island look good.With all of the backlash against airbrushing, implants and other forms of manufactured beauty, Survivor manages to put the into reality tv. Many have gone on from the show to careers in modeling, including spreads and covers of Maxim and Playboy.Amanda just lost her best friend in the game, she did so in the cruelest and the most heartless way possible, and it is tearing her up.So she goes back to camp after the challenge is over, and she completely breaks down. Here comes the good stuff Amanda goes back to camp, and she gives us one of the saddest, most pathetic, most teary-eyed confessionals in Survivor history. With the twenty-eighth premiering tonight (with tribes divided by brains, brawn, beauty, and affinity for Mitt Romney), it's time we did something for history and ranked every season so far. But his constant berating of the (admittedly terrible) Zapatera tribe for voting out Russell smacked of the sour grapes of a TV producer, not someone paying attention to the game. One of this season's twists was that the tribes would have to elect a "leader," a completely arbitrary and toothless designation which only functioned to put a target on one person's back. Russell Hantz, who was mercifully euthanized early on in this, his third attempt on the show, when his tribe recognized what a fool decision it would be to keep a noted and celebrated cancer on their tribe for even a little bit. -4Jeff Probst Annoyance Factor: Jeff has always been a Boston Rob cheerleader, so that was nothing new.
