My weekly TV column is up at Torontoist.
I had to look up who this Colton was… and now that I know, I’m glad I have never once tuned into that show.
I think Colton is more of a product of his environment. It probably wasn’t easy growing up gay in the South, and it probably takes a lot of compromise to be affiliated with a political party that’s against most of what he stands for. Oh, and his last name is “Cumbie.” With a name like that, I think he would get razor blades and pills mailed to him, to save the bullies all the work.
With all that said . . . yeah, he’s a huge piece of shit. And the guys of Manono are assholes and idiots for going along with his Bill-hunt. Why give up a two-person advantage over Saloni, which was self-destructing even faster? Luckily, there’s a tribal shakeup, and I think Colton lands in Saloni . . . which means that the idol that he got from Sabrina* might have to be handed off to somebody else. If he’s exposed? He’s fucked. And that’s good for everybody.
* I don’t hate Sabrina for handing off the idol to Colton. If I’m in a similar situation, I’d want to destabilize the hell out of the opposing tribe by giving its weakest member some power.
Question: Has ‘1000 Ways To Die’ done a show on how one could die by jumping over a shark? Because that would be a nice bit of meta-humour.
I don’t think the Republicans are against most of what he stands for, Jason. They both think poor people are lazy, rich people are better, and black people should be housekeepers. We don’t know his views on abortion, but since the issue doesn’t personally affect him in any way, that would be an easy thing for him to shrug off. The only real conflict is the part where they want him not to be able to marry, and he’s probably young enough that isn’t bothering him yet.
I’m sad that physical head-to-head confrontation isn’t on the table for men vs women seasons, because I’d like to see Colton get punched in the face.
@Candlejack like I said, there’s a shakeup brewing, and the tribes will be integrated. And that means the challenges where attempted murder is encouraged will come back. With any luck, Colton will be Leif’s bitch from the thighs down.
