My addiction to Survivor

Perhaps I shouldn’t admit this, but for one reason or another, I’ve become somewhat addicted to Survivor. Now in it’s like 10th season, this is only the second one I’ve watched and quite frankly, when I’d heard about it previously, I couldn’t understand for the life of me why this show would still be on the air. The about a year ago, there was an office game that played along with the show’s then current season. I drew a name from a hat and got a guy who ended up winning.
While I didn’t even know this season had begun until about a month ago, I quickly tuned in to see if I still like it and I found myself captivated by it. I realize that it is like the same stuff over and over, but for some reason, perhaps anthropological or societal, people are drawn to the characters and like in the show, we choose favorites and sides.
I haven’t decided if this makes me a loser or not, but who cares? It’s fun and it’s fluff TV, which I think is a good way to wind down after a long day. Last night I chose to watch while I conquered my own challenge on the elliptical machine and found that the hour workout went by really fast. My favorites on the show for this season would be Eric and Amanda. Eric ‘cause I just think he’s got a realistic style. Amanda ‘cause, well, do I really need to say? I mean she’s good at playing the game!

I am totally addicted to reality shows, but for some reason, I have never seen Survivor. I even have a friend who tries out for it every year. Maybe I will jump on the bandwagon next year...
