I agree goober makes more sense, but I heard guru and the closed captioning said guru. Not that CC is always correct, but on Survivor it is usually pretty good.
If it was "guru" I wondered if it was something he picked up as a misunderstanding from an evangelical Christian background, from a discussion in which there was a reference to a leader in a South Asian religion as in someone who doesn't know the "truth".... as Matt didn't know the truth in this situation. Or maybe he meant "goober" but has misheard the word and mixed it up with guru... either way he's clearly not understood what it means. IF that's what he said... I guess we could list this as a question to ask Matt when he's gone! :)
BUT, back to Russell and his armpits...I can't say I noticed that he'd shaved any more of his hair so maybe it was some kind of preemptive strike against BO that people had complained about before! :) I wonder if those infected spots were related.... waxing gone bad.
Men shaving their arm pits makes total sense to me. The hair holds odor and moisture and doesn't look good either. My ex husband shaves his. Not regularly but we live in Florida and it feels better to him. I support manscaping! Trim everything and wax your back!
I take the comment, the loser cries, as a typical misdirection since no one would think of Russell crying. Getting angry, sure, but no tears. If this is actually true I can also see Russell shedding a tear or two. This is a huge blow to his ego, so they are not born from sadness but more from horror that his reputation going down the tubes. He has a lot invested in making it to the finals again and winning.
I really don't think a person at Matt's educational level wouldn't know what a 'guru' is, no matter where or what background they come from. In fact I think most people over about 13 years old know. And even on the odd chance he did, I'm sure that by now he would have used the wrong term and quickly been corrected.
As to men shaving their underarms--too weird for me. If they had to do it, it should have been done a week ahead if it's not a regular thing, just to avoid the grossness like Russel has which is a result of too close shaving on skin that's not used to it, and sweat.
Sorry, I am old school--not a fan of a whole bunch of body hair, but a bunch of 'manscaping' just looks weird to me. I guess waxing back and shoulders would be ok, but that's about it. If you want the hair off for hygenic reasons, WAX. It causes much less irritation after the initial shock.
Ralph has to be playing stupid right? He isn'nt as incomprehensible in his confessionals as he is at tribal. Plus there is no way he spells "Ressell" on purpose.
