Survivor II: The So-So and Most Mediocre Moments!
Jeff Varner is very defensive about getting kicked off. He thinks he might have gone all the way if Kimmi hadn't opened her mouth or if he hadn't gotten that vote in the first place. Jane points out that he could have also stood on his peg and won immunity. Go Jane! Jeff thinks there was a traitor at Kucha who encouraged the Ogakors to vote against him. In fact, he knows who that Benedict Arnold was, but he won't tell Jane or Bryant. He's already told all of the world in his various Kimmi-bashings. Jeff says that he and Alicia always watch the show together; they find it very suspenseful. At times he wanted to crawl under the coffee table with embarrassment because he "put on a happy face" with the others, but "purged" in his interviews. Jeff then says he was a quiet leader and would have won if it was not for the downfall of Mike Skupin.
Alicia looks very beautiful in her interview -- less personal-trainer and more professional-newscaster. She's happy that the men were intimidated by her, and leaving with respect of the others was, she thinks, the best possible finish. Alicia thinks the DOTS immunity challenge was stupid, and Bryant agrees. So do I. Alicia then reveals that Kucha had decided prior to the merge to vote off Colby and Jerri first because they seemed like the two strongest Ogakor members. Bryant brings up the finger-waving and head-bobbing, and Alicia says that the "finger doesn't work without the head." Hee. Alicia says she lied to everyone about being out of town the night of her eviction so that she could be alone while she watched. That's sad. I like Alicia.
Jerri says that it's been a huge adjustment for her to "become hated by all of America" overnight. As opposed to being hated by only all of her friends, family members, and acquaintances. A clip of Alicia says that Survivor brought out the worst in Jerri. Jerri thinks the editors pieced together her worst moments...which would be all of them. I know the editors aren't above artificially making people look bad, but this is Jerri we're talking about. Jerri says that Kel's being voted off had nothing to do with the beef jerky and everything to do with his bossy behavior when they first arrived in the Outback. Jerri doesn't think Colby stirred up any animosity towards her, and she doesn't blame him. Nor does she blame a particularly critical writer at Mighty Big TV. She blames Keith. Bryant wants to know whether people say "evil" things to her when she passes them on the street.
