  1. Well, it is worded a bit ambiguously. But even if it includes past work, my understanding is that residuals often don’t add up to much unless you’re pretty famous and have past work that is still often re-aired. He probably figured that the money now was more important than the few dollars he got per month from residuals.
  2. To be fair, if it only applies to future projects of his it was probably a good deal after all.
  3. Kato Kaelin

    Why do I feel he was already on BB once? Or is it just that he’s just such ubiquitous background noise that he seems to have been everywhere?
  4. Little known fact - this trash bag follows me on Twitter.
  5. I know I’m clearly one of the poors, but how do you rack up $25K a month in expenses?
  6. So, can anyone suggest a good moisturizing body wash for the showers I’ll inevitably feel compelled to take after watching this shitshow?
  7. Well, that should be a right old dumpster fire.
  8. Good grief. Fisty is a bigger celebrity than her.
  9. POLL: Will you be watching?

    I’m looking forward to it. I mean, it’s what we do. Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more!!
  10. Photo and info courtesy CBS.COM Age: 27 Hometown: Williamsburg, Kentucky Current residence: Williamsburg, Kentucky Occupation: Public Defender Hobbies: Boating on the lake, four-wheeler riding, and tailgating football games and Keeneland horse races. Pet peeves: People getting offended over every little thing and know-it-alls. Three words to describe you: Charming, outgoing, and intelligent. What's your personal claim to fame? Becoming a Redneck Lawyer! I am a first generation college student and the first in my family to get a bachelor degree. I am also proud of myself for being a public defender to help people instead of chasing money—especially because money and the thought of being rich motivated me in school. Who or what is your inspiration in life? Mamaw Joan—my grandma. She is the most selfless person I've ever met. When my mom and dad got divorced she raised me and my four siblings while we stayed with my dad. She taught me life-changing lessons like the value of hard work and the importance of helping others. She also taught me how to enjoy a beer and some bluegrass music. Work hard, play hard, love hard. Her favorite quote was, "If you don't use it, you lose it!" If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why? A cooler, beer, and a radio. Nothing beats being outdoors and putting a few back. As great as it is at a tailgate, on the lake, or at a bonfire, I bet it would be even more enjoyable on the beaches of Fiji. Which Survivor contestant are you most like? J.T. from Tocantins, Heroes vs. Villains, and Game Changers. I've got that Southern charm. I can be hard headed when in the heat of a competition. I'll either win or get myself sent home with a massive swing for the fences. No regrets! What's your reason for being on Survivor? I think there are three reasons people play Survivor: adventure, money, and fame. My primary motivation is the experience and adventure! It has been my dream to play this game since I was a little kid. I want to push myself even further in life then I already have and test myself. My secondary motivation is the money. If I had a million dollars, I could pay off my student loans, which would open up my career options a little more. Money is not my primary motivation, because I anticipate I will make a million dollars in my career at some point. I do not care about fame. These days, Survivor contestants are only famous for about six months, anyways. Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I know I could be the final Survivor because I am the total package for this game, First, I am an adamant, hard-working son of a gun. I have chased my dreams my whole life and achieved those, despite humble beginnings. Second, I am a likeable, social guy. Third, I am physically fit and stronger than I look. I will do great in the challenges—tribal and individual, physical and puzzle. Fourth, I am very smart and it is hidden well behind my accent and appreciation for small town life. I will definitely be underestimated. Finally, I am a Survivor strategy expert. I am a super fan who has analyzed every season and every move. As I said, I am the Survivor total package.
  11. Photo and info courtesy CBS.COM Age: 28 Hometown: Sparks, Nevada Current residence: San Clemente, California Occupation: Financial Consultant Hobbies: Traveling the world, trying new things, political activism, hosting margarita nights, dancing, workout classes, anything involving French bulldogs, and starting my non-profit Ready to Run, which encourages, empowers, and equips middle school and high school aged girls to run for student government positions in their schools. Pet peeves: Indecisiveness, when people don't vote, and when people don't like dogs. Three words to describe you: Intuitive, persuasive, and loving. What's your personal claim to fame? I was elected to serve over 15,000+ students at Stanford University as Student Body President, and I was the first Latina to hold the position. Who or what is your inspiration in life? My parents. They have both worked incredibly hard for everything they have and to make a good life for us kids. Because of them, and their never-ending love and support and belief in me, I have been able to accomplish everything I've ever set my mind to. If you could have three things on the island what would they be and why? A copy of Maya Angelou's "Still I Rise," a poem that sums up my mindset for life and Survivor. A radio so I could listen to the news every day. Not knowing what's going on in the world around me is going to be one of the hardest parts of the game for me. And make-up. I'm not going to front, I wear it every day. Which Survivor contestant are you most like? Natalie Anderson for her intellect, sense of timing and character. Parvati for her charm, social awareness and cunningness. And both women for their warrior spirits and overall badassness. What's your reason for being on Survivor? Survivor is the ultimate challenge of grit, savviness, and strategy. As a naturally competitive person, I want to test myself, my abilities and my limits. As a military spouse, I believe we are most of the strongest and most adaptable people. I want to win because my husband will head out on his second deployment this year, and I want to be a source of strength and inspiration for other military families who have endured long months and years away from their soldier. Also, winning a million dollars is obviously a huge motivation--like many Americans I have a lot of student debt from school, and being able to pay that off would be a game changer. Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I have always been an extremely optimistic and positive person, I always see the best in everything/everyone and make the most out of even the hardest situations. Even though I'm not super outdoorsy, I'm a quick learner and always down to try something new. I'm also scrappy, adaptable, smart, fun, and determined as hell. Most importantly though, my love for people, empathy, and emotional awareness are what I credit for much of what I've accomplished in my 28 years of life. I'm able to get along with anyone, and people tend to trust me. Lastly, I'm not afraid to take risks and play hard. I will use all of these skills, at the right time with the right people, in order to make it all the way to the end.
  12. Oh, I wish. I was thinking though that if this theme doesn’t involve cloning departed survivors using the blood samples from Island mosquitoes, it’s a huge opportunity lost.
  13. Photo and info courtesy CBS.COM Age: 25 Hometown: St. Augustine, Florida Current residence: Denver Occupation: Technical Writer Hobbies: Hiking, binge-watching cooking shows but never cooking, reading too many online reviews before I commit to anything. Pet peeves: Loud chewers, people who are wrong about facts but think they are right, people who lack self-awareness. Three words to describe you: Excitable, intelligent, and empathetic. What's your personal claim to fame? Going from a couch potato to an adventure-seeker who sometimes gets off the couch to hike mountains, including 14ers (mountains over 14,000 feet)! Who or what is your inspiration in life? Anyone brave enough to: be vulnerable, love with their whole heart, or speak out against injustice. Any anyone brave enough to rock bangs. If you could have three things on the island what would they be and why? A phone to call my family and friends for love and advice. A journal so I could record my thoughts and plot out strategy. A mirror because I'd be scared something would be in my teeth the entire time and no one would tell me. Which Survivor contestant are you most like? I relate to Aubry because she is both smart and emotionally intelligent. I am prone to tear-filled moments like Dawn. And I'm flirty like Parvati... if she were bad at flirting and only nerdy guys liked her. What's your reason for being on Survivor? Human psychology and social dynamics fascinate me, and I'm excited to insert myself into the craziest experiment out there. I simultaneously love and hate pushing myself out of my comfort zone. I want to see if I can rise above the mental, emotional, and physical turmoil found in this game. Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I have the knowledge of the game, but I'm social enough to hide it and not be a (complete) dork. I'm an emotional, empathetic person who happens to have the capacity for analytical thinking. My balance between brain and heart will win me allies and a million dollars.
  14. Photo and info courtesy CBS.COM Age: 47 Hometown: San Diego Current residence: Los Angeles Occupation: Filmmaker Hobbies: Travel, wine enthusiast, and water sports. Pet peeves: I'm impatient with bigots. Three words to describe you: Curious/ funny, dynamic, and imaginative. What's your personal claim to fame? I've accomplished a lot in my career and was able to make a lot of movies. Who or what is your inspiration in life? I think of George Plimpton, a great writer who also wanted to experience the things he was writing about. He was fearless, inquisitive and enlightened. If you could have three things on the island what would they be and why? An eye mask to sleep. A good book; something fat. A SeaBob for the ocean! Which Survivor contestant are you most like? Johnathan Penner was a good storyteller and Rob from Amazon had a good read on people. What's your reason for being on Survivor? My primary motivation is playing the game. I've always, always wanted to play and see how I would do. Secondary is the absurd challenge of it all. Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I have the desire. I know the game. I am a student of human psychology, like what people say and how they behave.
  15. Photo and info courtesy CBS.COM Age: 24 Hometown: San Clemente, California Current residence: San Clemente, California Occupation: Bartender Hobbies: Surfing, playing guitar, and making travel videos. Pet peeves: Terrible drivers, traffic, and people that exaggerate during a story. Three words to describe you: Charismatic, tenacious, and humorous. What's your personal claim to fame? Getting through college and always pushing the boundaries in life by doing things that make me uncomfortable, such as traveling solo, playing guitar, and singing for people. Who or what is your inspiration in life? My mom and dad because they have shown me what love is and what it means to stay positive together through the tough times. My dad has been laid off a time or two, but he's always thinking of creative ways to make money and fighting to make things work. My mom is a selfless individual, a hard worker in real estate, and someone who's always positive and wants nothing but the best for those around her. They both demonstrate a tremendous amount of courage and I love them. If you could have three things on the island what would they be and why? A picture of my loved ones to keep me motivated, a picture of my bank account statement because it's zero. And a guitar to sing "Kumbaya" by the fire. Which Survivor contestant are you most like? I relate most to Jay, Joe, and Malcolm. All of those players are charming and likeable individuals. They were also all a dominating force during the challenges and physically fit which made them a useful asset around camp. What's your reason for being on Survivor? I've always been a go-getter and someone who doesn't take no for an answer. I want to outwit, outplay, and outlast everyone. I want to prove to myself that I can be that likable, charming and a physical threat player. I also want to be sitting at the final Tribal Council and win the million-dollar prize! Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I have the ability to charm people around me, both guys and girls. I can read people and understand situations better than most. My personality is endearing and I'm able to adapt in different environments. My job is to deal with all walks of life just like Survivor, and for that reason my social game is going to be unstoppable.
  16. Survivor 37: David vs Goliath

    Speaking of Natalie, I loved that Jeff called her out about her bullshit “I was misrepresented in the editing” bit. When he basically told her he was there and it was accurate, I was laughing my ass off.
  17. Yay, Nick! I’m glad he won, but equally glad Angelina got shut out.
  18. Hamster Headlines and Past BB Seasons

    As my mom used to say, as least they’re not ruining two homes.
  19. Survivor 37: David vs Goliath

    Famewhores gotta famewhore.
  20. Photo and info courtesy CBS.COM Age: 32 Hometown: Baltimore Current residence: Tallahassee, Florida Occupation: Robotics Scientist Hobbies: Clarinet, primarily classical. I do gigs and perform in orchestras. Casual coding. I once wrote a computer program to crate train my dog. Success was mixed. Sous chef to my girlfriend—I chop, she cooks. Together, we make some good food. Probably because she handles the more important job. Pet peeves: Condescension, clichés, and reckless abuse of percentages. Three words to describe you: Intellectual, jovial, and driven. What's your personal claim to fame? Getting my robotics research made fun of on the The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Stephen called me a "nerd" on national television. Bucket list stuff. Who or what is your inspiration in life? My parents are my heroes. No contest. They toasted my successes, comforted me in failure, and helped me back on my feet. I can't count all the ways they've supported me. If you could have three things on the island what would they be and why? Binoculars to try "birding." I've never done it, despite writing part of my dissertation on birds. Sounds relaxing. A graphing calculator; a good shelter is grounded in good trigonometry. Also, it should be grounded in dirt. And a thesaurus to give pity names to my strategic game moves. Which Survivor contestant are you most like? Stephen Fishbach. He talked about the game as a chaotic whirlpool of alliances, and his nerdy game analysis warms my heart. I don't do poetry, but I wouldn't object to being called a wizard. What's your reason for being on Survivor? To win and prove I'm not just a diploma or a résumé, that I'm a formidable person, qualifications or no. I also want to make my mark on this game and help innovate the way Survivor is strategically played. I need the game, and the game needs me. Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I'll win with my intelligence, kindness, and creativity. I'll be quick to assess threats and avenues of advancement while cultivating positive relationships with everyone. If I'm in a tight spot, I'll adapt and figure a way out. What could go wrong?
  21. Photo and info courtesy CBS.COM Age: 27 Hometown: Lake Butler, Florida Current Residence: Gainesville, Florida Occupation: S.W.A.T. Officer Hobbies: Working out in the gym, running at the stadium, or running the S.W.A.T. obstacle course, playing video games, and having date nights with my daughters. Pet peeves: I can't stand people that are lazy. Go out and get what you want! Don't complain about it and do nothing and expect it to happen. I also hate when people cut me off while I'm talking. Please let me finish what I have to say, it may be important. Three words to describe you: Determined, athletic, and competitive. What's your personal claim to fame? I am extremely proud of making our S.W.A.T. team. I had to work extremely hard to lose a ton of weight to be physically able to even try out, much less do well enough to make the team. I was one of the youngest and least experienced people to ever make our S.W.A.T. team. Who or what is your inspiration in life? My hero is my stepfather, Tim. Tim met my mother shortly after my parents separated. My whole life he has always been a steady father figure and an amazing role model. He taught me the value of hard work and how to be a humble man. When I met Tim at seven years old, he had nothing. My mother and him worked diligently and started a company from nothing and now want for nothing. Don't get me wrong, they aren't billionaires, but they pretty much do what they want when they want. Tim works many long hours and long nights to provide an amazing life to our family. The best part about him is you will never hear him brag about it. There is a song written by Brad Paisley that makes me think of him and brings tears to my eyes when I hear it. It's called "He Didn't Have to Be." It talks about how his stepfather was a great father to him and he hoped that he can be half the dad that he didn't have to be. That describes how I feel about Tim. If you could have three things on the island what would they be and why? A picture of my kids because I will miss them terribly. A Kindle with lots of books for entertainment. A hammock so I can have somewhere comfortable to sleep. Which Survivor contestant are you most like? I feel like I can relate to Malcolm from Season 25 the most. I feel like I'm young and athletic like he is and that I could do well in the challenges, making me an asset to my team in the beginning. I also feel like I can play the game strategically like he did, helping me run deep in the game. I work in a profession that requires me to be able to talk to any type of person through all walks of life and be able to relate and convince them to do things that I may need them to do. Malcolm was such a likeable person that he was voted off because three other contestants knew they wouldn't beat him in the final vote. I feel like I'm a very likeable person. I am able to make friends and relate to people anywhere I go. What's your reason for being on Survivor? My primary motivation for being on the show is to win. A million dollars would be a great way for me to provide a great life for my children that I wouldn't be able to do otherwise. My secondary motivation is my desire to compete. I love competing and I love winning. I haven't been able to compete at a high level since I played college football and I would love to be able to compete against other gifted men and women. Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I believe that I could be the winner for multiple reasons. I have a strong desire to win. I always want to win at absolutely everything I do. Whether it be checkers with my girls or just trying to be the first one to a call for service at work. I always want to be first. I have a strong work ethic. When I put my mind on something and decide that's what I want, I go and get it. Prime examples would be making our S.W.A.T. team. Prior to trying out, I was a very overweight guy. I decided that I wanted to be more than just a regularly everyday beat cop and I did whatever it took to do it. I changed my diet drastically, I worked out every single day, and I went to the track and ran sprints 2-3 times a week. Lastly, I'm very good with people. My career requires me to be able to talk to people all day. Everything I do at work requires interaction with people, and more importantly people who are typically either angry or distressed. I am very good at talking to people and convincing them to do things that they typically wouldn't want to do. I am quite skilled at calming people down when they are upset or angry.
  22. Photo and info courtesy CBS.COM Age: 30 Hometown: Orangeburg, South Carolina Current residence: Atlanta Occupation: Social Media Manager Hobbies: Swimming, hiking, biking, fishing—basically any outdoor activity that involves my huskies. Playing Scrabble, cosplaying, and memes! Pet peeves: I don't like people making decisions for me, especially without asking my opinion. Never expect a free ride with me if I see you being complacent. I will push you to get up and show initiative. There's nothing that bothers me more than a lazy person who acts privileged around those who've had to work for things their entire life. Oh, and calling me Dave or David instead of Davie, my momma named me that! Three words to describe you: Uncommon, adventurous, and calculating. What's your personal claim to fame? My online presence. I've always prided myself on my social media presence via various platforms. I wear my pages on my sleeve so to say that anything a person wants to know about me they can find on my multiple accounts. I've been proclaimed "the social media guru" among my closest friends because I know every trick and trinket to the game. Examples: Posting at peak hours to maximize the amount of "likes" you receive, guaranteed responses from females via Direct Messages (how to slide into them DMs), not to mention providing Grade A entertainment via video stories regularly. I've often also been told that my Instagram/Twitter/Facebook is "my favorite" from friends and even been called by my Instagram handle in public quite frequently (@iHateDavie) by strangers. Social media is also the reason I became employed with the top agency in the world for Public Health. I can say with confidence that it is my expertise and claim to fame undeniably. Who or what is your inspiration in life? Rick Grimes is my hero, though he is a fictional character. I have learned so much from him, from leadership skills to dealing with new people and new surroundings. The lead character in The Walking Dead, Rick leads a group of average individuals who become stronger because of his teachings and experiences. He defeats all of his enemies in a strategic and calculating way. Rick is dedicated to the title that his group has given him and is a provider for his family and friends, like myself. He has good days and bad days but never gives up. I channel Rick in a crisis and it helps me stable my mind, while having a little fun in the process. If you could have three things on the island what would they be and why? My harmonica. I believe in therapy and relaxation and making my own music will do just that. When I am stressed in the game, I can create this escape mentally and physically and maybe even look for idols in the process or entertain a few people and make friends along the way. My Davy Crockett hat. It's my lucky hat. I have worn it to tests and passed and I have worn it on dates and gotten lucky. When I wear this hat, I channel my best self. My Bible. I believe that Christ strengthens my being and it's important that I review his teachings, especially in times of chaos and struggle. Which Survivor contestant are you most like? Jeremy Collins. He was genuinely a good guy that knew when to speak and knew when to observe, that's my Obama! Also, Tony Vlachos, in that he was an innovative thinker to the game. Finally, Adam Klein in that he's a family man with a giddy sense of humor. They are all winners and so am I! What's your reason for being on Survivor? I want to prove to myself that I can do this. I was always teased for not playing popular sports like my friends so this would be my ultimate competition. I'm the middle child so almost the black sheep of the family. Both of my brothers are so accomplished so I want to have my own unique medal of self-accomplishment. My secondary motivation is my pack, my huskies. Recently, my beta wolf Luna Moon was hit by a car. I thought she was dead but we were able to save her. However, not without me being in debt. With my winnings, I want to create an insurance company for pet owners so that when things like this happen to us, we won't be faced with the hardest decision of our lives (putting a pet down). Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I understand how packs work. As a Siberian husky breeder, I know that in order to gain the trust of my pups, I have to feed them. I'm a skilled fisherman so as soon as I can get in the water to catch fish for my tribe, I will earn their trust. I also build doghouses and construct kennels for my pups and with my tribe, this would be no different. Creating new innovative, comforting types of shelter will show me as an asset. Lastly, with my pack, I have to be stern with them. I will mingle with the entire tribe, not just a few to show my sociability while also being assertive with them when it's time to put my foot down.
  23. So... she was very much considering booting him, but was completely confident that he would be taking her to the end. Makes sense! Other than the fact he would definitely beat her in the end, she would at least get (probably) second place.
  24. I guess that’s pretty much the definition of being hoisted on one’s own petard.
  25. I think everyone is still shooting a little high to what will be considered “celebrities”.
