When First Grade Teachers Go Bad
Survivor viewers were front row observers to the further descent into dementia that embodies Janís existence in Chuay Jai. Jan built upon her earlier experiences of routinely hording the tree mail, attempting to smuggle $1000 in reward challenge funds, and taking on the daunting challenge of ensuring all creatures, great and small, receive a proper burial.
This week, Janís dark side began to emerge, and it involved the canteen of beer that Brian and Clay had brought back to camp. Once again, in her silent revolt against the concept of sharing that she normally preached everyday to a classroom of six year olds, she didnít want to share the beer with her tribe mates. Perhaps most disturbing, in a new twist, she asked for a nipple to use in drinking the beverage while clutching the canteen with a unbreakable grip.
Many psychologists reportedly believe that Jan might just have a few unresolved issues to discuss on her return.
Ex-porn star nearly squished by elephant, NEWS at 11
And in international news this evening another bizarre story from the reality show Survivor. We take you now live to Victoria Dew who is on location in Thailand. Vicky, what can you tell us?
Good evening ladies and gentleman. Earlier today Brian Heidik, Survivor 5 contestant from Quartz Hill, California, narrowly escaped being squished by an elephant while touring the Thai countryside. Fortunately for Brian, his choice of companion on the reward probably saved his life. Mr. Heidik brought along the smallest member of his tribe to share the ride. If you take a look over my shoulder you'll see that the seat perched upon this elephant is indeed too small to accomodate two normal sized people. It is evident that any other tribemate selection would have sent Brian plunging over the side to his death. Mr. Heidik also managed to stay firmly atop the elephant with a deathgrip on this side rail. Fortunately for his family, all is well and Brian is resting peacefully back at the Chuay Jai beach. Topper, back to you....
How do you spell -- SEE YA?
Give me a "J", give me an "A", give me a "K", give me an "E". What's that spell?
Wait a minute, what happened? Just when you thought little Miss Muffet had scared the spider (or in this case, "Jake the snake") away, Miss Penny gets her torch snuffed and takes her curds and whey along with her.
But don't worry about little Miss Penny. If you saw her on The Early Show you'd see she's doing just fine. Complete with a perfect little pedicure and diamond stud toe-ring.
Tensions mounted Thursday evening when Clay was faced with helping either Brian or Ted over the wall to continue in the reward challenge competition.
Tension? It's hardly comparable to Sophie's Choice, but I guess when you're on a reality show competing for a million dollars situations can seem magnified.
When it came down to it, though, Clay chose Brian, leaving a dejected Ted to wonder what went wrong. Guys -- it's just a reward challenge, not "who would you do?" Get over it!
