Apparently Jenna Lewis has a podcast, and in like episode 46 she revealed that Kelly Wigglesworth in season 1 was caught loving one of the cameramen in exchange for food, which is supposedly why she dominated the later challenges, and was the real reason why everyone was so angry at her at the finale.

Who knows if it's true, I feel like that would have come out a long time ago if it was.

I'm fairly certain I've heard that rumor for many years now (like, 10-15+).

Jenna Lewis is also notoriously kind of a psycho so I don't take too much stock in her stories, but those early seasons were such uncharted waters that it surely could have happened. I can't imagine the crew members desperation to sleep with someone a month into survivor though, yikes.

Didn't J'tia burn all their rice in the fire before she was voted out or something?

Actually she poured the rice in the premiere before Garrett was voted out for being a bad strategist. J'tia was voted out later.

Watching you sleep.

Butt first, let's
check the feeds.



Generally I consider all parties in these Survivor rumor stuff unreliable narrators. Like its one thing if its allegations of abuse or racism or something but when its "X did better than me because they slept with someone/its rigged/whatever" I'm just showing myself the door.

That sucks but glad he's ok. I'm actually in the middle of rewatching Fiji, it's a weird season but I canít get enough of challenge beast Yau-Man.

Kass is particularly unreliable. She makes a lot of excuses for herself and her gameplay.

Edit: I hope Yau-Man gets well soon.

sportsline / cbs access deal

I got dinged for $99.99 instead of the $9.99 promo deal, and reached out to CS this morning. Just an FYI for anyone else who jumped on this deal, might want to check your statements.

They refunded the $90 w/o any hassle (took a few days to clear). Thanks for the heads up on the deal! I had no clue about the CBS Access lineup. This was the only streaming service where we can blast Nick cartoons all day. From down the hall, I think I've heard the same episode of the Mighty B about 10 times now.

yeah same. I heard blowjobs for food for like a decade now but not anywhere that makes it sound like anything more than a rumor

Rewatching one of the random seasons Netflix has left, Cagayan. I forgot how early on the rice burning happened. The brain tribe disaster is just a slow trainwreck that dominates the early season.

Anyway, writing because I had forgotten one of the funniest reasons a player has quit their season: "Trish is too annoying."

edit: Hah lot of weird moments I forgot. LJ and Tony both blowing idols on eachother for no reason

Truthiness!

What really bums me out about Penner and his wife, beyond the obvious, is the effect Covid will have on any memorial services. If they're in California all the worse, our memorial chapels are all full of the deceased at this point, so the complications with the services and remains will just add good red tapey fun to the already-horrible gut punch.

I know that doesn't quite make the Penners special these days, but still
