there was a past season where somebody showed up in a fancy suit as well, these people know what they're doing and are doing it to show off. they know the risks involved, to claim ignorance after 10 years of the show and , what 21 seasons, is silly. They're doing it for attention and to show off.
I agree. I was disagreeing with the idea that $1600 shoes are stupid or outrageous for some people. They would be for your average blue-collar worker, but for a lot of people it's part of the cost of doing business.

But yeah, I wouldn't wear them anywhere near Survivor time Oooh hey, that would be a good sub-thread..."What would you wear if you were on the way to play Survivor?"

No, I think it was obvious he knew he was being sent home, and he lashed out because of it. No one changed there vote.

Stupid planning, not at the tribal council, he was gone before he said a word and he knew it, the decision was made, but the afternoon before - he could have easily deflected his vote by putting Na whatever her names is up for being voted out instead of Brenda.

Yes, if Shannon had made a pitch for getting rid of NaDoucheka then he might still be in the game.

I agree. Also think he was incredibly jealous of Chase and Brenda is why he targeted her. He made an azz out of himself for sure.

Na or Nay or whatever her name is has a real stinko personality.

Good idea, rxgrrl! I'd wear shorts under a pair of sweatpants, a cotton shirt under a sweatshirt, 2 or 3 pairs of socks and 10 pairs of undies and I'd wear sneakers.

I'm old(er) so I can say this.

Saggy, out-of-shape, old people who are half naked, are not my idea of great TV.

Survivor was never meant to be a beauty contest.

I'd wear my Ex Officio convertible pants because the legs zip off to make knee length shorts, and they're made of tough quick-dry high tech fabric which is wind resistant. I'd also wear an Underarmor long-sleeve shirt, a good quality t-shirt and a Goretex windbreaker, plus Smartwool socks with 100% silk liner socks, and Tiva hiking sandals. Definitely a swimsuit under it all, with a pair of Ex Officio quick-dry underwear (wash 'em and they dry in like 10 minutes), and a Tilley hat.

And...I'd get my armpits, legs, and bikini area WAXED before leaving. Plus, I'd spice up the 'oldies' camp because I'm a hot svelte redhead.

No, I disagree. We'll probably not know for sure, but I believe Brenda and Shannon were gonna get a tie vote. Then Shannon shot off his big mouth like the idiot he showed us all he is, and a couple people switched their votes. What he did was certainly grounds for people to switch votes--to voice that you are a homophobic individual at tribal council?? There easily could be 2 or 3 gay players on his team.
Just another moronic, bigoted a**hole giving the south a very bad reputation!!

All I've got to say is Nano Nano has got to go. A pathetic excuse for anything human.
