Crap from Africa
The dog poops, and Kimp looks sad. Kimp tells us she'd also taken up babysitting, and this, too, comes with a fast-motion clip of Kimp rocking behind a child on one of those springy playground animals. These clips have the effect of making Kimp seem even more pathetic, and then the little girl joins in the cause by yelling at Kimp to get off the playground animal. Kimp shows us a little heart necklace, which was her luxury item in Africa. She's dyed her hair red, and it's not very flattering. And the cut looked better on Alyson Hanigan two seasons ago on Buffy. Kimp says the necklace has special meaning to her because it was a gift from her brother; she wore it to every Tribal Council. We see a picture of a very happy-looking, normal-haired Kimp being hugged by a wistful-looking young man. How do they always find the wistful-looking pictures of dead people? If I were to die suddenly, I'm not sure there exist any pictures of me looking wistful. In any case, Kimp tells us that her brother was killed in 1998 in a tragic accident. Incidentally, there are lots of dead brothers amongst the Survivor cast. Kimp tells us that Lex Loser slightly resembles her brother, and every once in a while in Africa she'd glance at Lex Loser and see her brother instead; she felt like he was there making sure she was okay. Seems like, as a college-degreed professional dog walker, she could use him around now, as well. Kimp says that Survivor wasn't about winning a million dollars or being on television. Rather, she says, the competition was between "me and myself." I bet "I" feels very left out. We see various clips of Kimp being a strong competitor. She tells us Big Tom nicknamed her "Little Bit" because his first thought upon seeing her was, "That little bit of a girl is gonna make it out here in Africa?" She was bothered when people doubted her because of her size, and insists that she gave Survivor her all; she says she could always be counted on and was a strong competitor. Having prevailed over the nasty little girl, Kimp now sits on the springy animal and tries to be taken seriously at the same time. She tells us she's learned a lot about herself, and took a great deal away from the game, but that there were times when she wanted to stop playing and go home. Kimp climbs the Rocky steps in Philly and acts like a champion. Except Rocky Balboa would have never let himself get kicked off a playground animal by a three-year-old.
