Survivor Recap: Players and Pawns

For a game that sparked so much controversy before the first episode even aired, lately it’s just been predictably chugging along, making me wish for one big elimination of all the inconsequential people who we know are not going to win anyway (i.e. Brad, Jenny, Sundra, Rebecca, Becky and Nate), and let the real players have at it. If you watched last week’s episode and/or read this recap, you can take a wild guess at who got the boot this time. And my guess is that your guess is probably right. Of course if they wouldn’t have merged so soon they wouldn’t have the problem of all these excess lackluster players. You know I had to go there. But honestly, there were twenty of them this season, with only one or two so far that I’ve been sorry to see go.

With any group of people a ruling class and a proletariat inevitably emerges. And if anything remains interesting in this game, it’s how much the players manage to rule, while the others just get picked off one by one, with practically no contest.
