I hope he tries to tell people he's actually Gary Hogeboom. (I would love to see a B-level Celebrity Survivor.)
What's a stronger word than "flabbergasted?" Because "flabbergasted" certainly isn't descriptive enough in this case. "Gobsmacked?"
<span>Every time I try to leave Survivor, it sucks me back in. Damn you, Survivor, with your ridiculous casting that makes me want to watch! Never thought I'd be in a dysfunctional, unhealthy, co-dependent relationship with a TV show.</span>
What? I mean. What? Really? Jimmy Johnson? THAT Jimmy Johnson? No. No way. No freaking way.
Well slap my ass and call me Shirley. That's just...seriously? Really?I call for a reward challenge where the item is a can of Aqua Net. Jimmy will trample everyone on the way.
Okay, so will this casting be enough for you guys to blog about the new season? PLEASE? :)
I haven't watched Survivor in years, and it's a mighty tough slot, with Undercovers, Lie to Me, Top Model all in the same slot. It probably loses out to Undercovers and Lie to Me in the DVR war.
Is there any way in hell he's not the first member of his tribe to be voted out? I mean, there has to be at least one person on his tribe who has been conscious for the past 25 years and watches football on television, right?
Why would you vote him out first? He's not likely to be a threat to go on a big physical run in the competition, but seems likely to be competent enough to be helpful, particularly in challenges that require working together as a team. Also, in a jury situation, "regular guy" beats "Jimmy Johnson." My guess is that he survives until the merge and gets dumped shortly thereafter.
<p>Maybe you're an Eagles fan, or a Giants fan, or a Redskins fan, or a Nittany Lions fan, or a Seminoles fan, or a.....</p>
Or how about Sports Personality Survivor? You cast Tim McCarver and Deion Sanders, and you've got GOLD, baby!
Kornheiser would complain too much. I'd like to see Bill Walton out there.
I believe we covered the last season pretty heavily.
No, Matt's right: he's the "guy you want to drag with you into the finals."
You did, and I was very happy about it. Just worried that was a "special due to Rob Mariano's return" situation.
Matt may be right, although I like to think that if I was on a season with Jimmy Johnson, I'd keep him around just long enough to shave his head, burn as many of his belongings as possible and then vote him out. Of course, as an Eagles fan and a long-time passionate hater of Miami (I had just moved to South Florida when Penn State played the Hurricanes in the Fiesta Bowl), I wouldn't really have any other choice.
That would be TERRRRRIBLE!!!!
He doesn't need the money. A flat out "I'm giving my money to help inner city kids play football" could keep him in the game in the midst of a tight vote.
