I read the snarky recaps at Television Without Pity
whenever I want light entertainment. I don’t actually watch the show. Stupid television is more alluring with added snark.
Survivor: Gabon: Who Will Outwit, Outplay and Outlast?
Stats: 61, from Temecula, CA, Retired nurse
In Their Own Words: She’s playing for the baby boomers and beyond, showing that the game can be played with “gumption and guts instead of boobs and butts.”
Fun Facts: Born in South Africa, she’s applied to be on the game 15 times. She got a butterfly tattoo on her hip at age 60.
Verdict: She’s traveled around the world, loves adventure sports, is in shape and a dedicated fan of the show. This “American citizen with an African soul” is determined to be the oldest winner yet. Who are we to say she can’t be?
Gillian, you are an in-your-face try-hard. I do love it. You totally deserve a SWORD. But only one. Because, face it, this is a show about boobs, butts and bloody boring idiots. The rest of the mob… forget it.
It’s impressive that you made it past the first elimination, you are an ‘old woman’. There was no way you were going much further. The people who are voting you out are idiots or men or both. Amazing women do not succeed on shows like Survivor (just like real life). Think Stephanie and Cirie.
But you knew that, didn’t you, Gillian? You’ve applied to be on the show 15 times!
