Arguments, insulting of deities, exiling of the handicapped. That’s what it’s like when a woman wants a baby.

I theorized last week, and was seemingly proven correct, that none of you read what I write here. So here is a list of things I’ll pretend we discuss on this episode:

1. Better Survivor hair: Malcolm or Cochran?

2. Which would you rather see: 30 minutes of monkey sex or 2 minutes of Brandon Hantz?

3. Wet blanket Tyler just wet-blanketing all over the place.

4. Fond remembrances of Drewchebag Drew Christy.

Of course, we always welcome your comments. Please note that any comments regarding Shirin and/or Max that are not unironic and effusive praise will be mocked. You can leave a comment here, tweet us @purplerockpod, or email us at purplerockpodcast on gmail. Thanks for listening!

    Nice podcast!

    My guess is that Joaquin will be voted out!

    I disagree with your assessment of Will. I would pick him as my winner.
    He is on the outs on his tribe. He has good relations with all his tribe members. And he is part of the most cohesive tribe. Which is pretty much ideal.

    There is a chance that his physical shape will get him eliminated before the merge. I do believe that he can exploit tension, and use his social game to his advantage.
    Will only needs to survive until the merge, after that he is golden. He reminds me of (a slightly less intelligent) Sandra for some reason. The only risk that I see is that he becomes too present, or too cocky.

    Both Hali and Will are the most likely to go far from the No Collar tribe in my opinion!
    Ah, and Shirin can’t be 0%! Not as long Max, Jenn, Joe, Hali, Kelly and Mike are still in the game. #believe

    • I think you’re off on Will, but I agree on Shirin. Actually, the comment below yours is my exact reasoning.

    • I think you’re off on Will, but I agree on Shirin. Actually, the comment below yours is my exact reasoning.

  • I feel perhaps the producers are trying to show Shirin as more in danger than she actually is, maybe to pass a narrative in which she was saved by the swap (or by someone being med-evac’d next episode). I think it is Tyler that says during the episode “Joaquin knows he is on the outs, so he is trying to climb the pole by showing me the idol clue”, or something like that.

    Just because someone annoys you, it doesn’t mean you should break your alliance to vote them out. The alliance of the 4 is strong, and there is no reason to take out Shirin, keeping Joaquin which seems to be quite untrustworthy and probably making Max quite angry.

    • I didn’t want to say it on this week’s podcast, but if Shirin makes it through next week’s episodes I think she’s going far. I’m with you on the reasoning, too; the only reason to show Shirin in danger is if A) she’s gone next episode or B) she dodged a bullet and is going to be in (or at least very near) the final three.

  • Regarding John’s comment about Boston Rob doing a morning show on All-Stars with Alicia and the rest of the tribe, that was on Marquesas. After the swap BR mentioned how on his previous tribe they all had lots of fun, but on the new tribe no one wanted to have any fun. I think he said he tried to get the new tribe to do a morning show but no one was interested.

    Andy said that morning show bit wasn’t aired – I think he was thinking of the deleted scene on the All-Stars DVD of BR’s tribe doing a fake tribal council of one of the other tribes going to tribal where they all pretended to be the players on the other tribe (with Rob C. as Probst).

    • Thanks for the clarification. I’m actually surprised Andy didn’t remember that fake tribal council, because Boston Rob dressed up as Ethan. And that should have made Andy’s gossip-loving heart happy.

  • The morning show was from Marquesas. Maramuu in the morning. There was one in an episode which you can read here: http://funny115.com/v1/39.htm There was also another one that was shown in the clip show which you can watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MM2AoIexq64

    In All-Stars the Chapera tribe acted out their own version of Saboga going to the first tribal counsel the night it was actually happening. This was also from the clip show. Seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmpMSdLnPQ8

    • Note: I didn’t post those things just because. They are pretty funny. Watch (or read) them if you have time).

      Looking for a quote I found a mini version of the talk show in episode 4 after the swap were Rob and Sean are talking about how their old tribe was better/more fun and the women were better looking.

    • Dr.Horrible

      I 100% credit Sean with the awesomeness of Maramuu in the Morning.

  • I think what Shirin’s edit is saying is that she is going home soon. I think it’s showing she’s going to ally with some or all of the no collars after the swap/merge. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that you and others have remarked that it looks like Shirin would fit in better with them and if she was switched with Nina. I think the edit wants us to see that so that when she allies with them it makes perfect sense.

    • I think you wrote “is” instead of “isn’t” in your first sentence. I’ll actually (hopefully) cover it on the podcast this week, but that’s basically my read on what’s happening.
