For the viewers in Jackson, MS, we ALL played through the pain last week as Survivor was preempted by local basketball (Ole Miss) on the Jefferson Pilot network. Survivor was tape delayed until 1:35 a.m. (that's like the middle of the night!). Of course I managed to set my alarm and watch the show. I do know how to use a VCR, but I couldn't hold back my anticipatory delight.
I was disappointed by the 'combined' challenge, but I was TOTALLY taken aback when SUE won the weekly (tylenol?) 'Play through the pain' award. Anybody besides me think that was the lamest thing they've ever seen on Survivor?
