Men vs. Women

Survivor is trying men vs. women this season and so far, it is a very, very bad idea. I won't go into all the contestants' names and personalities, because there are just too damn many of them at this point. Suffice it to say, the women are already at each other's throats and the men are still very much united, with the exception of Colton, the token gay guy. I think he's hilarious, and my dad thinks he looks like a Ken doll. I love it! The women love Colton, too, but things are about to turn ugly according to the preview for next week's episode.

The ladies are playing this game all wrong. The guys stole some of their supplies, and instead of playing it cool, they whined and tried to manipulate them when it came time to divide the chickens they had caught. So, then, they thought it would be a good idea to try to steal fire from the guys in the middle of the night, but then they let the fire die out. Stupid stupid stupid. There are a few smart ladies on the tribe but they're being way too quiet. And the obnoxious ones are taking over already. One of the girls, a nice tattooed chick, got hurt during the challenge and went home, so even though the ladies lost, they didn't have to vote anyone out.

My advice for the ladies is to get rid of the loud morons who are trying to run things and start playing smart. Act like everything is fine, and let the guys think you're going to play nice. Then, win as many challenges as possible by working together as a group. Which is asking a lot from a group of women, I know. But it would be nice if they actually did it.

The guys need to embrace Colton as part of the team, or else once the merge comes, he could run away with all the girls' support. It really is too early to tell what's going to happen, but it's pretty clear that the current group of Alpha males needs to make sure there are no divisions in their team in order to stay strong.
