It always surprises me how much players fail to really weigh what the other players are probably thinking and feeling and seem to have tunnel vision way too focused on what is good for themselves.
As far as the makeup goes, of course it's all subjective but for me it all depends on the woman. I personally think both Parv and Corinne look good all done up but others like Chelsea and Kat from One World or Amanda Kimmel look much better "island style" though. I guess it depends on how it's done too. I like smokey eyes and dark stuff but the lighter colors generally look too painted on for me.
I don't know, there's been a ton over the years
. In a way I think a certain amount of self absorption is probably a good thing in Survivor since it's ultimately an individual game, but a little can go a long way. They have to be able to not think too much about the needs/wants of others and put themselves first, but they definitely have to be able to be cognizant of what's going on around them and factor in how people are feeling at the same time to be effective.
Of course, people will "interpret" events to paint themselves in a better light and not just for the benefit of others, but themselves, too. In this season's Amazing Race, you have the guy that failed to use the Fast Forward even though his team was struggling and ended up being eliminated and he refused to admit that he screwed up and pretended like he didn't care. But just the way that Corrine phrases her comments gives me the impression that it's Corrine's world and we're all just living in it.
As far as having the abilitty to read the other tribemates and be able to adjust your gameplay depending on which way the wind is blowing, she definitely didn't learn anything from her first time because she was eliminated even before jury this time. Too bad too, because she sure would have had a whopper of a speech at Final Tribal.
And that Parvati. There is no bigger flirt than her!!! She has the "Lord of Darkness" wrapped around her finger. She could sweet talk you as she's slitting your throat and you'd think you were the luckiest guy in the world!
Did anyone find it strangely arousing as P and C were talking about putting gross, slimy things in their mouths and having them squirt? :O
