So WWE's own Ashley Massaro is the second player out, after barely beating out a Chicken Farmer to survive the first vote-off last week.

For those who may not have been watching this time around, it's a bit of an "old school" season - they went back to just 16 contestants, and no exile island. They did keep the hidden immunity idol twist. The challenges have been physical and interesting, and it's nice to be off an island (though it's something of a jungle/forest region this season filmed in). The cast is mostly young, attractive, and not terribly smart, which can make things fun. Most of the "featured" players so far appear to be more likely to outsmart themselves, rather than outwit the competition..

Just for fun, my early guess will be Aaron, Frosti, James and Amanda for the final 4. Although they seem to be setting up professional poker player Jean-Robert for a long run, likely the main 'villain'.

As far as Ashley is concerned, this is about the worst case scenario when it comes to a high-profile attempt to get crossover press. She was sick the first week, looked weak, and apparently lost the vote unanimously to get the boot. Of course with the subdued mentions her appearance was getting on WWE programming, I think she may have at least hinted that maybe the E shouldn't make such a big deal out of this.

If America gets a large dose of Bobby Bellande, they will hate him as much as the poker world does.

I get the feeling that JR's the second one gone from their tribe once Fei Long gets done Pagonging the other tribe. They portrayed him in the camp scenes in this weeks episode as being indolent, or narcoleptic, or maybe both. Yeah, he kicked ass at the immunity challenge, but I think they'll figure they're safe as long as they have Gravedigger still on their team.

Have I mentioned how I love your recap? Now I can picture a Family Guy-esque parody with this:

as a Survivor contestant.

Oh, and it wasn't unanimous, one of the gals also voted with Ashley. I was shocked that Sherea did not vote for Dave, especially with how much she was crying.

It wasn't unanimous, but Ashley was the only one to vote for someone else. That Dave is a total tool, so I fully expect him to win the whole damn thing.

Indeed. He's a weasel.

I can only imagine how America may react to a large dose of Mike Matusow though.

I may actually make it through this season. The last 3 seasons have lost my interest early (I HATE Exile Island), but this more simplistic game of People Playing People is nice.

My bad, I could've sworn on the farewell segment that one of the gals (not just Ashley) wrote down Dave as well. Huh.

Well, I guess WWE's logic in picking Ashley to be their Survivor rep was sound in that though she looked weak and was quickly eliminated, it's only a diva. It's not, like, Undertaker went out there and got sick on the first day and was unceremoniously eliminated by a wanna-be corporate motivator.

Am I crazy, or did Ashley actually look much better looking on Survivor in a somewhat 'normal' setting than she does on WWE programming, where the makeup guns are always set on whore?

I would pay $99.95 a day for a PPV feed of Mike Matusow and/or Phil Hellmuth on Survivor.

I couldnt get over how skinny and bony she was. And those big ol' fake boobs didnt help. She looked like a tetherball pole with 2 balls attached instead of one. There's another super-skinny chick on the show that looks like she could use a home-cooked meal too. I can only imagine how she's gonna look after a couple more weeks on the show.

But back to Ashley, I think her making it personal between herself and [the a-hole who built the firepit, I forget his name], especially at tribal counsel, is what killed it for her*. Everyone else in their tribe thinks he's a douche too, but when she got into that stupid argument with him right before the vote, it suddenly became "It's either Ashley or [douche], I have to choose one" in everyone else's minds. I dont see why you'd make yourself stand out so much like that right before people are gonna vote.


(*Unless of course she did other stuff to turn her tribe against her that we didnt get to see)

Just a feeling from having watched this show from season one, I'm thinking that the rest of the tribe decided to boot Ashley long before council, but they tossed in her little speech about "I'll call Dave(?) out, and see what happens tonight" just to maintain a degree of suspense.


Big Bad - I know that Survivor has started seeking out contestants as well as taking applications, but are you saying instead of specifically asking for Ashley, they asked WWE to select a wrestler for them?

And Vince didn't pick Snitsky??

The version I heard was that that's essentially what happened. CBS or Survivor casting producers went to WWE, asked for 'a wrestler,' and WWE sent Ashley partially due to not wanting to lose any of the male talent for two months while Survivor was filmed. Ironically, there's a guy on the show this season (James the grave-digger) who has a better physique than 95% of the WWE roster. Knowing Vince, he's probably trying to sign him to a contract right now.

They should just call this season "Survivor: Mud". I had to laugh when Dave splashed mud on Jaime while building the fire pit and some of the folks got upset about it - give me a break. There hasn't been anyone that has jumped out at me as a favorite or someone to cheer for but I know that I have been on a flight with that nasty little flight attendant....
