Dumbest 'Survivor' contestant EVER!

| 4 Comments | No TrackBacks

This season's "Survivor Micronesia: Fans vs. Favorites" will go down as the season of injuries and idiots, and poor, young, naive Erik, a 22-year-old ice-cream scooper from Michigan, likely will be crowned King of the Idiots for giving up immunity at Tribal Council.

What started out as kind of boring installment of the CBS reality show has turned out to be one of the most unpredictably excellent seasons to date.

To recap Thursday's episode: Five people were left vying for the title of "Sole Survivor," and Erik was the lone male. Erik won immunity, again, which means he was safe from being voted off the island. Safe!

But never underestimate the power of four intelligent women. What they lacked in strength to beat Erik in a mostly physical challenge they made up for with ingenuity and, well, cojones.

Cutthroat Natalie balked when the other three women — Amanda, Parvati and Cirie — suggested she ask Erik to bestow his immunity to her at Tribal Council, as a gesture of goodwill for lying to all of them earlier. "Seriously, WHO would do that?" she said to them, shocked that they would even think she would ask.

Well, she asked and at Tribal Council, HE DID IT!!! Dumbest. Move. Ever.

Guess who was voted out? The reactions of the Tribal Council jury were worth the price of tuning in.

Bravo, ladies. Bravo.

All the women look to have an equal shot at the million-dollar prize, but my money's on Cirie, who has quietly masterminded most of the game-turning moves this season.

The two-hour season finale airs at 7 p.m. Sunday on WBBM-Channel 2, with a reunion show to follow at 9 p.m.

Erik goes down as the dumbest survivor EVER.... no doutb about that

i dont understand how cerie is still there, she's so annoying and so stupid, i fail to even understand why the brought her back for another season, i want to stab myself in the ears when she speaks

Erik is NOT the dumbest survivor ever, Colby was. Colby won the last immunity and was able to choose the one contestant he sat next to in the final jury. He chose Tina instead of Keith, which ended up costing him 1,000,000 dollars. Had he not chosen her he would have won, they polled the jury and that was what they said. Worse yet he knew that he would win if he didnt choose Tina, but he siad he would rather get second place and lose the 1,000,000 dollars than let the other contestant Keith even get second, that was the dumbest survivor move ever, a GAURANTEED 1,000,000 dollars. Erik still would have had to beat three more players to win even if they would have kept him, far from a sure bet. COLBY will always be the dumbest survivor ever.

Yep, yep, yep....Erik goes down as the biggest idiot in Survivor history.....how could ANYONE be that dumb?!

And yes, Cirie is an absolute mastermind. No one has come close to mentioning her as a target, she sucks at ALL the challenges, and there she sits...in the final four. Genius, pure genius.
