It’s not like I’ve seen every season of “Survivor.” Somewhere around the eighth or ninth I missed one. And from what I heard it was bad.
So I can’t say for sure that “Survivor: One World” was the worst season of “Survivor.” But I can say it had to be close.
Yes Kim should have won and Kim did win. But her competition was dismal. She was the clear pick to win by the halfway point and no one even seriously tried to unseat her.
But what was really striking about this season was how vile two of the players were. So vile that they both ended up apologizing (but not nearly enough) on the reunion show last night.
Colton was the American nightmare of a rich, spoiled bigot. And Alicia… it’s just terrifying to think that women gets to work with children of any sort, much less special ed kids. The fact that Jeff Probst has implied that Colton might be brought back on another season is disquieting. Really guys, at what price ratings?
Between the lack of competition, the ugliness of some characters, the mass dullness of others, and the pitiful product placement displays, this “Survivor” came off as wounded, tacky and frankly disturbing.
The main reason to tune in next season is that it’s got to be better than this one. Doesn’t it? Doesn’t it?
