RNO Roundtable - 'Survivor: The Amazon' Predictions, Part 1: The WomenPage 4
View Printable version of this article
David: I do have to wonder where this woman has been if she wants to prove that a woman like her can win. I mean, Tina was 40. Check. Tina was married. Check. Tina has two children. Ah, well, there is the difference. Jeanne has three children. Seriously, either she just wasn't thinking when she said that or she is not really up on Survivor, which does not bode well for her. Still, I think she can make it to the jury - but no further.
Jeffrey: Politics are a must if you want to win at Survivor. To win, she'll have to both understand and use them. She'll be a mid-game cut.
Brian: I can just see every horny heterosexual man out there going, "Dude this chick brought massage oils to the women's camp!" Something tells me aren't going to be seeing any lesbian love scenes acted out though. Anyway, I love the fact that she's a fan of The Sound of Music like I am, but am pretty damn scared that she was actively looking to sing onstage with Alanis Morrisette and, in fact, jumped on stage to do so. There's something about the mom in her that will make her the mom of this tribe and everyone will love her as much as we did Gretchen Cordy so many years ago. Sigh.
Jamie: I like her. Not as athletic as some of the others but I she seems balanced and fun and the massage oils will help her make friends. I get the feeling she will be likable and under the radar, same feeling I had about Erin last season. I think she'll make the jury.
Ken: Agewise, she reminds me of Gretchen or Tina. Most likely, she will play with gusto and passion but without getting on anyone's nerves. Like Tina, I think she'll be outwardly nice, but have the people skills to stay in the game awhile. Wouldn't be surprised to see her make final four.
Phil: Okay, by the looks of her profile, Jeanne is trying way too much to be considered the "cool mom." I'm not a fan of that role. Although, I thought Brian was trying to play the "cool dad" role last season and I was completely wrong. That's right, I just admitted to being wrong. Mark that down because it may never happen again. Anyway, I think Jeanne is going to be too much. She seems nice and all, but the whole Tina thing was a one-time thing. Don't get me wrong, I loved Tina, but Jeanne is working it too hard to seem like her. I'm betting the other girls catch on to her game pretty quickly. My guess is that she is gone before the merge, but not before Heidi.
Charlie: I think she's got the right stuff to make it far in this game. She seems very personable, like the type of person that a person can put trust into. Although outside of the game she has no desire to go into politics, I think she'll end up in a dominant alliance early in the game and finish near the finals.
Melinda: Jeanne strikes me as an extremely friendly, poised, and confident woman. She describes herself as "free-spirited and outgoing," which she would have to be to jump onstage at an Alanis Morrisette concert. She's obviously willing to try new things, from fine dining to the music of a younger generation. Her background in marketing and restaurant management could give her tremendous people skills. She's not an obvious athlete like some of the other women, but certainly looks to be in good shape. Jeanne reminds me of Teresa from Survivor: Africa, which is as big an accolade as I can give to a person and player. Jeanne is my pick of the women to win Survivor: The Amazon.
David: Jenna certainly attracted attention when she was first named as a contestant because of her swimsuit modeling. But I'm betting there is more than just a pretty face (and body) there. She's majoring in a science discipline. She works on a television show. She deals with people. I bet she uses both brains and beauty (though the latter won't be of much use in the early stages) to make it far. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised to find her in the final four.
Jeffrey: I predict Jenna will be an early casualty on this edition of Survivor. She's definitely a competitor (and against other women at that). However, I'm guessing this trait will work against her during her stay in the Amazon.
Brian: What the hell is a Zeta Crown? Is that something that she got from Catherine Zeta Jones or something? Personally, my gut instinct on this, which isn't always accurate since I share it with my other personality, Shut, up Brian, they don't know about me, Well now they do, Take it back. Delete that line!, I will not!, Do it!, No!, Shut up!, No you! ANYWAY. Something tells me that this woman is going to be the whiny bitch of the show along the lines of Sarah from Marquesas. Sadly, I think she will stick around once the men see her and merge in with the women.
Jamie: Wonder how long after the announcement that the tribes would be same sex before she knew she was in trouble? A sorority crown as a luxury item doesn't bode well for practical thinking. Unless she is bringing something to the table besides eye-candy, and I am not seeing it in the bio, she's an early out.<--Previous 1 2 3 4 5 6 Next-->
