And I use the word “rarest” for a reason. Who knew this little old twink from Alabama would be in control of the all-male Manono tribe. Certainly not after the initial men vs. women aka “One World” situation was introduced. At first glance, Colton Cumbie seemed to never fit in with the guys’ tribe, so he would hang out with the girls, yet they finally decided he shouldn’t hang around anymore. I think his fellow dudes made the mistake of underestimating him, and he turned the tide by forming an alliance of other outcasts, including Survivor‘s first little person to ever compete, Leif. Colton is by the far the most flamboyant gay man to ever play the game. Sure, Season 1 winner Richard Hatch may flaunted his nakedness around, but he’s got nothing on Colton. But here’s the kicker, Colton is not only gay and Republican–what is up with that?–he just might be a bigot and a racist. Even if he was brought up with black housekeepers and he’s never had a real job, he’s not afraid to say it, as this week’s volunteer Tribal Council proved.
It’s totally unfair to form an opinion about someone without getting to know him or her, but Colton made up his mind about stand-up comedian Bill–who is black–by just throwing around a lot of degrading phrases like calling him “ghetto trash” and telling him he needs to get a “real job”. I doubt Colton could throw a stone, but he heaved a hell of a lot of them at Bill. Nevertheless, the Survivor producers have molded Colton into this season’s break-out star/villain. Why do the gays always have to be “villains”? And just because, here’s another look at this week’s historic and bat shit crazy Tribal Council (Courtesy of tv.yahoo.com)
The episode was titled “Bum-Puzzled” for a reason, well that Jay guy said it, but Oh My God!!!!
My writing may be premature, because apparently next week, girlfriend gets thrown off by a twist, and something tells me either the tribes are merging or at the very least, integrating (no pun intended!)
I also loved when Tarzan had his Tourette’s moment when he went on and on about how race shouldn’t be an issue in this country. Needless to say, I’m entertained and just how despicable will Colton get? One more parting shot, Colton’s Twitter account. You’re welcome!
