Reunited and It Feel So...Well, Okay
Next week: the survivors are back from Africa!
Lex Loser plays drums and demonstrates counting on his audition tape. He acts very punk. Bryant points out that Lex Loser's band Lucky Dog got an album contract, which is followed by Plug #4: buy Lucky Dog's new album.
In closing Bryant wants to know how difficult it will be to return to normal life. Lex Loser thinks celebrity is a blast. He says people get excited to see him, and that as a people person, it's a dream. But "if you're not a people person," he warns, "it's a nightmare." Bryant awkwardly adds, "And you make friends to last a lifetime," which has nothing to do with what Lex Loser just said. Ethan gets the last word, and Bryant wants to know how he'll spend the money. Ethan answers, "Well, I owe my brothers probably about twenty-seven years' worth of birthday presents...so I think I'm gonna start there." ["I was sorry that he reused that line at the end of his appearance on Letterman." -- Wing Chun] He also starts to say he's going to do something good with it, but then Bryant "I Haven't Heard the Sound of My Voice in a While" Gumbel interrupts to force Ethan to say that Survivor has been a dream come true. Plug #5: set your VCRs for The Early Show. Bryant thanks and congratulates them all, including Diane. He should really be congratulating me for making it through three hours -- and three seasons -- of this stuff, Wing Chun for editing the crap I write (and for allowing me to keep writing it), and all of you for persevering through the episodes and recaps.
See you all when we're Back from Africa!
