Pity "Survivor" chieftan Mark Burnett so far this season. Here he's got a former sitcom star, a former pro baseball player and two former players that could be bringing some interesting drama, but producers aren't getting to spend much screen time on them. That's because they keep having to focus on one of the most inept tribes in "Survivor" history.
Yes, pitiful Matsing — or as Malcolm called it, "The Goon Squad" — was back to Tribal Council for the third straight time this week. The goons landed there after a pathetic Immunity Challenge performance where only half of the four-person team — muscular Malcolm and tough sex therapist Denise — showed the slightest hint of athletic aptitude.
Russell, the dreadlocked returning player who talks a good game, faltered as he attempted to dive into the ocean and collect pieces for a puzzle. He even had trouble climbing a three-rung ladder to get out of the water. But he was a regular Ryan Lochte when compared to Angie, right. The sweet-but-dumb beauty queen hardly even tried. She went into the water just once, then decided that this was just not her thing. But later, she wanted us to know that she is not someone who gives up easily. (Sorry, Ang, but you kinda are.)
