don't forget, pre-merge episodes of non All-Star seasons tend to be pretty average and mediocre (this one's mediocrity is being magnified by last season's epic pre-merge)

we have a tribe swap next week and sh*t will supposedly hit the fan

i saw the video caps for next episode and the new tribe alignment is spectacular

Re: Survivor: Nicaragua

Exclusive: James "Jimmy T" Tarantino talks 'Survivor: Nicaragua'

http://www.realitytvworld.com/news/e...agua-11611.php

Quote:
Buzz up!
By Reality TV World staff, 10/07/2010

Reality TV World: Were you surprised to be voted off or did you know you were going to be the one going home? Last night's episode seemed a little unclear.

James "Jimmy T" Tarantino: I was surprised until about halfway through the Tribal Council and then it was crystal clear to me that they had different things in mind. I thought we were voting Danny out.

Reality TV World: The show presented you as being pretty jealous of Jimmy Johnson right from Day 1. Do you think that was accurate, and if so why was that the case?

James "Jimmy T" Tarantino: No, that wasn't accurate. It was that I knew that Jimmy -- several times I had seen him being insincere in his communications with the tribe and I'm a very genuine individual so I rebel against someone who tells me one thing and does another.

I'll give you the Jimmy Johnson impersonation. I heard this speech three times -- given to me, to Marty, to maybe one or two other castmates.

You ready?

Reality TV World: Is it long? Because we only have a limited amount of time.

James "Jimmy T" Tarantino: Very brief.

(assumes Jimmy Johnson accent)

"No jury in their right mind is going to give me a million dollars but I can help you win a million dollars!"

(resumes normal accent)

And he said that to three or four people, and very sincerely -- like he was going to help them win the million dollars. But there were several things that were just disingenuous.

Reality TV World: At Tribal Council last week, you said you thought Jimmy Johnson considered you a threat to his leadership role because you're a leader. Did you really believe that or were you just saying that at the time?

James "Jimmy T" Tarantino: Ah, no. See, it's easy for people who aren't there to make assumptions. But in the game of Survivor where you have to build shelter, you have to provide food, go without food, go without sleep... some people did that and built the shelter -- me -- and some people didn't, and they threw up and they couldn't handle that.

And you saw that clearly.

I'm not saying that because I think I can lead an NFL team to victory, although that was 20 years ago -- maybe I could.

I'm not saying I'm a better leader than Jimmy Johnson, but in Survivor there's no question I was a threat to his leadership there because I was the doer and the provider.

Reality TV World: You were obviously extremely confident that you should have been the leader of your tribe and, based on what was shown, seemed obsessed with the idea. Why was that?

James "Jimmy T" Tarantino: Because I saw clearly through the people that had no genuine concern for the tribe. And probably foolishly, I really cared more for the tribe than myself. Contrary to popular belief.

I knew we were heading on a bad course as a tribe and I wanted to get back on winning.

Reality TV World: Can you give some details on all the leadership experience you kept saying you have, because your CBS bio doesn't mention anything -- it just lists you as commercial fisherman and doesn't mention if you're a fishing boat captain or any other experience you might have.

James "Jimmy T" Tarantino: In my job I'm a seafood inspector. So I go into seafood production facilities and help them analyze their process and important their process to produce quality product, without boring you with the intimate details of that.

You have to keep in mind, contrary to what the show showed, I was a team player and I've been a team player my whole life. And to see guys that want to lead for their own selfish reasons, irks the crap out of me.

So that's why I couldn't keep my mouth shut, as they like to say.

Reality TV World: But weren't you kind of asking for your "own selfish reasons" when you were saying everybody needs to get a turn?

James "Jimmy T" Tarantino: No, I was just saying, "Look, we've been losing for a while" -- I even wanted to come right out and say, "Look, you're all sheep and Marty's leading you all to the slaughter."

But if you come out and say that, that would have alienated myself a little more, wouldn't it?

Reality TV World: I don't know, based on what they showed, you seemed pretty far on the outs already. (laughs)

James "Jimmy T" Tarantino: (laughs)

Yeah, you're right. I probably -- listen, if I had it all to do over again, I would have kept my mouth shut, sat on the back of the bus, let Marty drive it off the cliff, and jump off just before it went off.

Reality TV World: In your pre-season video, you said you weren't really a Survivor fan before your sister convinced you to enter the Sears casting contest. What was it that your sister said that convinced you to apply?

James "Jimmy T" Tarantino: Well she knows what I'm all about, she knows that I'm a man of conviction. I'm passionate, genuine, and have good leadership skills. But that doesn't translate well in Survivor.

Reality TV World: On last week's show you said Jimmy Johnson "wasn't a Jimmy T fan." Then on this week's, we saw you saying Marty "wasn't a Jimmy T fan." Who did you think your "fanbase" was out there?

James "Jimmy T" Tarantino: Um, yeah. I didn't get to last long enough in the game to convince people that "right and right." And you know what, I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that the way the show -- it wouldn't do the show well to perceive me as the guy who was trying do the right thing versus evil succeeding. Because I don't know if they want that image.

But that's the way it was. (laughs)

Reality TV World: That leads into how Marty had some pretty harsh things to say about you on last night's show. He called you a "delusional," "obnoxious" "loudmouth" who "suffers from both paranoia and delusions of grandeur."

James "Jimmy T" Tarantino: Yeah. Let me tell you, in 2009 -- and maybe this didn't make the bio either -- I competed in two international rowing races, a 22-mile solo race, and a 450-pound boat that I smashed by eight minutes. I trained Olympic-caliber.

And it doesn't show by looking at me because I brought all that fat into the game, because the nutritionist said it's smarter to burn fat rather than muscle.

But I would take any one of those individuals and destroy them in a fight-to-the-death fistfight. (laughs)

re: tribal swap, I think there are too many scenarios to work out before it happens. Pretty much ANYONE could be in a good/bad spot based on how things shake out. Like, if the only swap that took place was Chase and Brenda getting traded for Holly and Jane, all four of them would probably be screwed. If Marty got swapped for Chase, he's possibly (but certainly not definitely) screwed. If Alina and KB get swapped into the same tribe as Marty+Jill+Dan, they could own everything. It's just way too complicated to think about until we see how things shake out.
Way to ride the fence!

So you don't agree that Naynuh and Brenda are the two most likely to be affected in a neg way? Alina and KB the two most positive affectives? They're going from a sure fire eviction to a legit chance of becoming part of a power alliance.

Speculating is half of the fun too. Remember when you said big nips would win the game? Funny stuff!

Am I the only one that thinks it was incredibly mediocre? I think we got about six minutes of actual Survivor discussion. If Tyson was incredibly funny, it wouldn't be a big deal, but he's only mildly humorous, and I chuckled more than I'm laughed. Tyson is much better in small doses.

Meh, I'm just saying it's hard to run through the billion possible scenarios. Obviously, Alina and KB have nowhere to go but up, but it's tough to say how good their position will be when we don't know even one of their new tribemates (or if they're even together anymore). Speculate all you want, I'm just saying it's pretty damn hard to do it if you're going to break it all the way down to, "Okay, if KB is on the same tribe as Marty, Dan, Holly, Brenda, Chase, Benry, and Alina, she's in good shape!"

This is where I am too, unfortunately. Shanaynay the hood rat is just so off-putting I can't really get beyond her yet.

The fact that she is so dumb that she doesn't realize no one will ever vote for her ever isn't helping the matter, but her dumbness has a lot to do with her low level street thuggery.

Just a chicken-neck, finger-snapping hood rat with no redeeming qualities whatsoever.

LOL at Jimmy T's leadership experience being a job as seafood inspector.

He's clueless to the end. I kinda miss him already.

There's obviously different scenarios but that's the idea, judging which player will adapt the best/worst and who will fall from power. I feel like we know enough about these people at this point to do so.

Well that's pretty simple to do: people at the top have nowhere to go but down, and people at the bottom can only go up. However, to use an extreme example, Alina obviously isn't in better shape if the only change made is KB getting traded for Tyrone. Alina would still be #1 on the hit list, which is why it's pretty tough to just make general statements when we don't know how things will shake out.

(Luckily, we DO know how things will shake out thanks to that CBS video. I recommend people watch it just so we can speculate more accurately for the next few days.)

You don't see the difference between information pertinent only to next week's episode and obtained from a promotional video publicly available on CBS.com (and presumably TV) being discussed only in spoiler tags, and genuine spoilers?

Re: Survivor: Nicaragua

I mean, I see the difference. There's lots of disagreement about what constitutes a spoiler in this thread. Some people don't even watch the "Next week on...Survivor" portion of the episodes.

I just think it's funny when the guy who rails against spoilers harder than anyone else in the thread "suggests" that everyone watches a promo video that completely gives away exactly what will happen in the tribal swap.

Re: Survivor: Nicaragua

And whatever. I'll watch it, I read the posts in spoiler tags. But if Kos just wants to take his discussion outside of spoiler tags, what about if people who want to discuss real spoilers in here? I'm sure such people exist, considering the existence of the Spoiler forums on Sucks.

But hey, Kos is king of this thread, so he gets to make the rules.

You should probably explain what the spoilers entail before you actually post spoilers. And this is from someone who has had experience with spoiler issues.
