Survivor Blogland: Reality?

Background Music:
OH EH OH AH OH EH OH OH EH OH, Survivor Theme Song

OK… I am a huge fan of Survivor. I am not afraid to admit it. I know it. I love it. Can’t get enough of it. I know several of you can’t stand Reality TV. I have seen you talk about it. Seen you discuss it, etc. As I watched Survivor last night I got to wondering.

Is Blogging really the everyman’s Reality TV? We say we don’t like Reality TV but are we really turned on by the plight, struggle and victories of others on this site? Heaven knows we had enough drama this week. More than I care to ever have again. What I thought was both sad and at points heartbreaking, was the ripple effect it had throughout the site.

Bloggers I had never even heard of were discussing it. It was the week’s biggest issue and talked about by hundreds and possibly thousands. (I am just using this weeks “thing” as an example here folks.)

Are we living a real life version of Survivor? Not in a competition sense but dreaming and creating drama, heartbreak, feelings and emotions in real time? So… What is your take you anti-reality TV people? LOL Are you living it in real time instead? Are we Real time reality TV Online?

That is an interesting analogy. I do not watch much tv, but in these reality shows aren't folks working hard to oust the other folks on the show? I hope that doesn't happen in BlogLand.

Still, it is a popular phenomenon. I have a few ideas for a spoof on reality tv in my "Blog Idea" file, but I haven't taken it any further yet. Should I go with Donald's harsh "You're fired!" or with the softer Martha version of "You just don't fit in"?

I personally LOVE "Survivor"! It's one show I look forward to every season! I love picking sides and then having them do/say something to change my mind and then do/say something else to change it back! I like trying to guess who will win, only to be (somehow) surprised each and every time it's the one that got in "under the radar"! Rarely do the ones who deserve to win, actually win.

LIFE is a game of survival (oh, and a cereal and a boardgame too)!

And just like in real life, I am always surprised at how some people seem to come out on top without even trying. Most have to scratch and claw their way to mediocracy while others were born at the top without lifting a finger! And then there are those that work their fingers to the bone all their life only to be at the bottom no matter what!

Go figure!

I have a question for you: Do you think Jeff Probst is cute? Just!

I've never watched Survivor. Like the Apprentice though...I have a pen that says "The Boss" on it and when you click it it says "You're Fired" in Trump's voice.

The only thing I liked about Survivor was the rabid monkey sex, they DIDN'T show you on camera... BTW...How did you come up with this analogy? Was it the chronic you were smoking in you know who's blog? LOL....

I LOVE Survivor too! Who are your early picks to win, everyone? I'm going with the zookeeper (the ladies are especially good this time around).

Hmm, too bad there wasn't some way we could start up a Survivor fantasy
