My gallant crew, good morning

Some random thoughts:

  • Regarding Survivor – Nicaragua: Did you see NaOnka’s eyebrows on the reunion show? They are the most incontrovertible proof I’ve seen to date that God doesn’t exist!
  • On the job fun: Being reminded by the boss about something trivial that I haven’t missed a single time since originally trained yet being left completely in the dark regarding super-critical information required to do my job while he’s on vacation. Then being “corrected” on the thing I was never told about in the first place. Argh!
  • Teamworking: My co-worker discovered an error in a shipment we received. She brought the error to me and said, “You’ll need to write an email to the boss about this” and proceeded to explain the whole scenario. I then asked, “Wouldn’t it be easier if you wrote the email since you’re the one who already knows about it rather than explaining it to me so I can tell him the information second  hand?” She has this habit of pushing all of her unfinished tasks on me and I’m a little fed up with it. For example, she takes calls from customers with questions. She writes it all down, brings it to me, and says, “You’ll need to call this guy back.” WTF? Of course, she was offended with my question. “I was just trying to work together as a team,” she pouted. What a load of guilt trip! “I’ll just write him the email myself,” she moaned. Geeez!

Have a great day, everyone.

Survivor Nicaragua contestants announced

The contestants for the 21st season of Survivor have been revealed on the Survivor official web site.

Survivor Nicaragua will start with 20 contestants. The rumor regarding former football coach Jimmy Johnson is confirmed.

The series premiers Wednesday, Sept. 15, 2010 at 8pm on CBS.

Youth to battle elders on Survivor

Well, it has been confirmed. Survivor announced that the 21st season, Survivor Nicaragua, will be a battle of young vs. old.

18 contestants will form two teams. One tribe, Espada, will be comprised of those older than 40. The other tribe, La Flor, will consist of those younger than 30. As I surmised earlier, the game won’t have any contestants who are “30-something.” That’s just downright weird.

If the game is intensely physical like it has been in recent seasons (even roughing up players like James) this would seem to put the older folks at a disadvantage. It will interesting to see if any effort has been made to come up with challenges that will make the outcomes more uncertain. Or will the elders be left to sink or swim?

A photo of the contestants was also revealed, but with their faces concealed. The cast is expected to be announced mid-August and the show will premier on Wednesday, September 15th.

Survivor Nicaragua to premier on September 15th

CBS today announced the date for the season premier of Survivor Nicaragua, the 21st season of the popular reality show. The show will premier on Wednesday, September 15th at 8pm.

Rumors and other information are starting to flow as CBS gears up to release the identities of this year’s cast sometime in August. There will be two starting teams named “Espada” and “La Flor.” As described on Survivor’s Facebook page: “A great battle between a flower and a sword takes place on the beaches of Nicaragua this September on CBS!!”

There is a rumor that teams will be divided by age with one team over 40 and the other team under 30. This would seem to leave out the 30-somethings, eh? It is also rumored there will be 18 contestants at the start of the show.

Former Dallas Cowboys football coach Jimmy Johnson, age 67, is reportedly a contestant on the show. He might be an interesting choice but I personally don’t see him making it any further than week 4.

Survivor Nicaragua is about to buzz

Grab your buffs. It’s almost time, people!

Nitwit * Outcast * Outfray

Outfray??? Okay, I admit it. That’s lame as hell. Epic fail! The only other thing that came to mind was “Frito-Lay” and I thought that was even lamer. Sue me!

The 21st season of Survivor is scheduled to start sometime in September 2010. I don’t know the official date yet of the season premier, but my spidey sense is tingling and telling me that the official Survivor web site is going to be updated very soon unveiling this season’s cast members.

In breaking news from today, The Dallas Morning News has reported that former Dallas Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson will be a contestant. (Source.) Prediction: He won’t win. Johnson is currently a football analyst for FOX NFL Sunday. I wonder if FOX hat to put him on waivers so he could appear on an NFL show?

Season 21 of Survivor will reportedly also feature the return of the game-changing “Hidden Immunity Idol.” Jeff Probst has blogged, however, that they will be hidden differently than in previous seasons due to “The Russell Factor.”

Probst has reportedly already signed for seasons 22 of Survivor. The future of the series after that remains uncertain at this time.

For the first time since Survivor Borneo, the initial season of Survivor, the show will air on Wednesdays at 8pm.

Seasons 21 and 22 of Survivor will both reportedly be filmed in Nicaragua near San Juan del Sur. This no doubt will help reduce the costs of producing the show.

The top prize of $1 million still hasn’t been adjusted for inflation since the series originally premiered in the United States in 2000. That’s probably why I don’t even bother. 🙂
