The Purple Rock Survivor podcast: Worlds Apart episode 9

Purple Rock Survivor podcast: Worlds Apart episode 8 (Podcast episode 8, Survivor episode 9- they had one week with two episodes)

The image of Will’s lifeless corpse sliding down into the water turns out to be a metaphor for Joe’s game this week, as not even the power of Joey Amazing’s charming handsome beautiful charms (see what I did there?) could save him.

Points of interest this week:

Mike is winning this season. Discuss.

Shirin is somehow in second place?!? Discuss.

Our somehow weekly segment entitled “Grudging acknowledgment of Rodney” continues with appreciation for his impressions.

Why anyone who thinks Tyler, Carolyn, or Will have a shot to win are completely wrong.

We also respond to some listener mail, make predictions for next week, briefly mention the Ultimate Survivor Bracket, and let Andy somehow manage to screw up our email address again (but don’t worry, he gets an assist from an old friend).

Of course, we always welcome your comments. You can leave a comment here, tweet us @purplerockpod, or email us at purplerockpodcast on gmail (Note to Andy: This is our actual email address). Thanks for listening!

    The prospects for next week are great. It has potential to be a top-tier Survivor episode (of all seasons). Jenn is a huge wild-card, she can do literally anything. Other than her, there are two 4 people group, and now is the time to play your idol to get number control. Shirin already said Carolyn is on the block, and Rodney wants to get Mike out. But both of them have idols that no one else knows about. I think both idols will be played, and they will tie on zero and take out Tyler, or maybe Jenn will go wild-card on everyone and want to make them draw rocks. That would be so awesome!

  • Having seen that episode as recently as this morning, I can tell you the Jack & Jill challenge was themed – they had to paint themselves in pairs and work with their ‘twin’ which Jeff explained was like the lesson Adam Sandler learns in the movie. So it’s actually worse, because at least Jeff didn’t explain the plot of Gulliver’s Travels.

    And um, people do vacation in Montana. I get how for Andy the idea is about as appealing as I would probably feel about visiting scenic Alabama, but from someone from a part of the continent with completely different geography, it’s a gorgeous place to visit and I had a great time when I did.

    • I’ve driven through Montana, so that’s something.

      (For real, I bet it is really gorgeous country. It just so happens to be the same type of topography from where I live – well, outside of the city that is. So it baffles me that there’s a successful chain restaurant with six locations in my city with a theme of ranching and cowboys. Believe me, there’s no shortage of non-chains with that theme around town).

      • Oh yeah. That’s what I was trying to say with the Alabama stuff. If you’re from the next place over there’s nothing interesting about it, and I totally get how you’re like ‘meh, Montana.’ I was just noting that ‘see Montana’ isn’t an absurd thing because for people who don’t have that topography, Montana is a pretty solid place to see it.

      • Also for the record I’ve spent time in the Canadian Rockies (Banff) and it as kind of spectacular.

      As someone who was forced to visit scenic Alabama quite often from a very different geographic location, I can’t imagine ever finding it pleasant (I might think differently if I had ever visited in the winter). On the other hand, huge stretches of Montana are desolate wasteland, but the Rocky Mountain region is absolutely gorgeous. I’m not a skier, but when I was in school in California, many of my friends who skied made trips to the Rockies in Idaho and Montana even though Tahoe was only a few hours away. They thought it blew Tahoe out of the water, and was less crowded.
