Survivior: Up To Episode 4,


I mail a set of vhs tapes of the tv show Survivor to our friends Red and Asterisk in the U.K. because the show was cancelled there....who we met blogging over three years ago. They only have tapes this season up to Episode 4...so if you're also a fan try to not make any spoilers if you happen to also watch this program. I am so freaked out by one of the contestants. His name is Russel and he is an owner of an oil company in Texas. He reminds me of the Daniel Day-Lewis character in There Will Be Blood and he is every bot as evil and sociopathic as his character "Plainview". In the very first...opening episode of this season...ths asshole burns the socks of HIS OWN TRIBE (see I had to yell I am so upset. He set his fellow tribe members socks into the fire in the middle of the night while they slept. And he drank all their water and poured out their canteens of what he didn't drink. They all wake up freezing and with o water, get immediately dehydrated and continue to lose all the challenges. None of them have any idea he has been sabotaging them. They think he's great...except one woman who is a cop and he gets every one to vote her off! Anyways...I had some pics I wanted Red and Asterisk to see and here they are...


Am I losing my mind or is it now impossible to take a picture from the tv with some strange new format...like HD? I tried and tried to take a photo...and visitors know, I've taken many pics from the tv with my digital camera...but this time I couldn't get a pic without this strange set of lines running through. So Jeff Probst was co-hosting with Kelli on my mornign talk show (which i watch religiously now for decades)...and they had this really awesome poto...which I've been dying to show Red and Asterisk...

Check out his tight red spandex pants...

I swear I die laughing at this photo. When he co-hosts this program they always bring this hilarious picture out...

I have to admit I dont watch Kelli and Regis but have seen it and I dont watch the Survivor so there wont be any spoilers from me.. Hope all is well with the two of you..

Is that really Jeff????? I love him but I must say, those pants are a bit of a turn off.

Candy Minx said...

Yes, Lee, that's him. He said he was in a band in the 1970's or early 80's. I can not stop laughing when I see his hair and pants.

Hahahaha, thanks for these, Candy. Jeff is awesome! He'll always be Jetski Man to me, because of that one time they did a link from the location shoot to the NYC final with a sequence of him as though he was jetskiing the whole way. Do you remember that one?

Anyway, as for taking pix off TV: I've actually found it easier to do this since the advent of flatscreen LCD TVs, which also make it easier to video straight from the screen, too.

Oh I thought that jet ski gag was hilarious. One of the reasons I like Probst so much is he can laugh at himself too.
