Cool that she got a fire going asap, plus hooking that thing on her first try.  Especially for an old lady.

Damn, she's impressive so far.  She took quite a faceplant in that first challenge and bounced right back up to conquer the next stage for the team.  I suspect she'll leave the game due to a medical issue sometime within the next 4 episodes.

Until then, I kind of love her, if only because she told the younger gals that if they have a problem with Dan to speak to him directly.

So far, I'm loving her.  She's spunky!  The fact that she can keep her tribe from freezing may keep her in the game for a while unless she or one of her tribemates are not complete assholes!

I like Beast Mom, but she won't last.  She's gonna try hard to prove herself, but her old bones won't hold up like them young folks.

Let's not forget that Janet is a lifeguard.  One has to be in great shape to do that job; better shape than a lawyer perhaps.  I'm sure that her old bones can probably run rings around many of her younger tribemates.  I certainly hope so, I'm a fan.

Well...she's in charge of a bunch of lifeguards, I didn't get the impression she was still out there lifeguarding herself.  I do hope she sticks around.

I'm fascinated by her legs.  They aren't fat just really, really big and strong looking.  I choose her to keep an eye on me the next time I swim in the ocean.

This woman is a class act, and I'm low-key hating Elizabeth now because of the whole situation,
