I'll admit it: I've seen every season. That's right. And if there were ever a reality show I could be on, this would be it. It's been sort of a guilty pleasure for the last... oh say, five years, or whenever it stopped being popular. But never have I been obsessed with it as much as I am this season. Heroes v. Villains? UM YEAH. The strategizing that goes on--what with this season's crazy insane players like Parvati, Russel aka The Evil Leprechaun, Boston Rob (RIP my friend, you didn't even make it to the jury)--is enough to blow your mind, and the naiveté of good old favorites like Rupert the pirate and Colby the hunky cowboy is making me fall in love with the game of Survivor a hundred times over.
And I'm sure at this point, any respect you had for me as a stylish person and or sensible blogger has now gone out the window (Oops, crack in the floor! Family Guy anyone? More respect lost, dammit). BUT there is a point to this post besides me just rambling on about how I spend my Thursday nights...

COURTNEY! This girl is officially my favorite person pretty much...ever? She's hilarious. Probably also claims both the title for most sarcastic and skinniest reality TV star, as well as the most sarcastic about being skinny... That didn't make sense, but if you've seen the show, you know what I mean.
She's not even officially ON the show anymore, and she still manages to crack me up for the five minutes she gets airtime as a part of the jury at tribal council. How about tonight when Jeff was like, "I'll go count the votes" and Courtney's just like, "You go do that" and it sounds incredibly stupid as I'm typing this but IT WAS SO FUNNY. Oh, and can we also talk about her impression of Russel running around his little hidey-holes. Or how about the time she flipped off Jeff on Survivor China? Or her impression of Jaime? Fantastic.
Courtney is one of those people you either love or hate, and there's definitely a lot of hating going on, but the great thing about her is that she's true to herself and she doesn't give a crap. When asked about being a Villain, Courtney said, "I wasn't surprised to be a Villain. At first, I was didn't think I had done enough to warrant that, but then I thought about it. If you're a woman on a TV show who has more to say than [puts on a high-pitched voice] "What a great idea, I love it," then you're a villain. I'm never going to be as sweet and lovable as the Heroes ladies, but I wouldn't want to be either, so that's fine" (blog.zap2it.com).
Anyways, if there are any of you out there who read this blog and appreciate and possibly worship (okay, maybe I'm going too far) the hilarity that is Courtney Yates (or just Survivor in general), please comment, so that I don't have to be alone in my adoration and we can do that thing that girls do when they're like OMG, I KNOW RIGHT? Please also enjoy this vid from CBS that is just pure Courtney.
Also, The Dragon Slayer is so full of it. I don't know exactly what he's full of, but regardless. You love to hate him, don't you?
Also also, I apologize for the formatting issues. It looks normal in the editor and then all SCREWY once I publish it. So incredibly IRRITATING.
