RNO Roundtable - 'Survivor: The Amazon' Predictions, Part 2: The MenPage 7
View Printable version of this article
Jeffrey: Roger brings enough physical talent to the tribe to stick around, and he's probably got the maturity and mental ability to work well in an alliance. I see him going well past the merge, into the final six.
David: I don't think the fact that he is the oldest contestant this time will play a role. I do think the fact that he describes himself as "intense" will - and not a positive one. He might not make it to the jury.
Melinda: Why does this guy seem so familiar? Let me check his bio: Smackdown, football, wrestling, Smackdown, Smackdown, Smackdown. Yeah, he's part of this season's Survivor all right. What's original about Ryan? OK, unlike Daniel, Dave, and Rob, Ryan is not working in a field even remotely intellectual. He shares the occupation of modeling with Matthew but lacks his cultured background, though Ryan does profess to enjoy clean underwear, which is more than I can say for Dave. Ryan is strong, fit, and describes himself as "funny and talkative." Although he doesn't come across as goofy as Daniel, Ryan's lack of maturity and intellectual achievement can make him an early candidate for the boot in a tribe that's top-heavy with guys just like him.
Charlie: Spoiler Alert
Phil: Ryan and Rob are going to be good together. The only difference is that Ryan is going to get far and Rob isn't. Poor Rob. Anyway, even though Ryan may seem like Rob, I think he is going to be a nicer guy. My bet is that he makes the jury, but will be cut shortly after. He seems a bit immature, but athletic too and that will save him. What he needs to do is find someone that is respected in the tribe, hold on and go as far as he can. Shii Ann did it last season with Jake and it worked pretty well for the most part. It got her to midway in the game, but she was the reason for her own downfall. I don't think Ryan will make that kind of mistake. All he has to do is sneak in there and lay low. If Ryan can figure out how to do that, he will be fine for a good while.
Ken: Like Rob Cesternino, he finds Superman's x-ray vision appealing for reasons that appeal to the libido. A model and actor, the others in his tribe might see his as a pretty-boy type. If he makes the merge, he could coast by on charisma with the ladies, and get away with things simply because of his looks But I see his tribemates tiring of his act and dumping him before that happens. Most likely will be the fourth or fifth one out. Won't be the first ousted from his tribe, but will probably be second or third.
Jamie: He is young, an actor/model, and considers himself a leader. Weighing his bio against the life experiences of some others on the tribe that leader business is a recipe for disaster. Will he be the team mascot or will he be their Scrappy Doo who they will toss out of the Mystery Machine first opportunity? I have a feeling he will hear his name read way before the merge.
Brian: Okay, beyond the ridiculous Magic 8 Ball, Ryan is the only guy who truly brought something useful as his luxury item - a baseball and bat. God I hope they never lose that ball because things in their tribe will get boring FAST. Well since Ryan has already been spotted to be absent in some video clips from the TV show Extra, there's no point in really going into much detail on him except that if he ever does get X-ray vision then all branches of the Lucille Roberts gym had better close and fast. Congrats on losing the weight though Ryan. Too bad you're leaving so soon.
Jeffrey: I don't see great things from Ryan. He's got the physical talents needed to play the game, but it a certain amount of maturity to win. The ability to turn the world into their personal Playboy bunnies indicates a lack of this maturity.
David: Spoiler Alert
