I haven’t been this happy with an episode of Survivor since that bitch Corrine got the boot. Tyson Apostol, the 30 year old professional cyclist from Lindon, Utah was eliminated in the April 23, 2009 episode of Survivor: Tocantins after a shocking 5-3 blindside vote at tribal council. Admittedly cocky to the end, Apostol proclaimed at tribal council that he felt comfortable in that he wouldn’t be eliminated. Booyah jackass! He’s gonzo, off to Ponderosa. He proclaimed himself as the greatest Survivor contestant ever but I have news for him; while he did have physical prowess, he got outwitted and outlasted and has nothing more than the elation of the majority of Survivor viewers when he got the boot to take away from the experience. Hell, he should go pair up with Spencer Pratt at this point, they’re both on the same level of jackassedness.
He was ousted because he was a threat to win challenges but that’s not the reason that he made me vomit in my mouth. He’s an ass. He insulted people, belittle them, revel in their misery and deluded himself into thinking this is justified. This IS a game for a million bucks BUT he seriously didn’t have to be so mean, both to peoples faces and behind their backs.
I never understood the mentality of wanting to be the “reality baddie”, the one people love to hate. Where does that get one in life? The only thing it REALLY shows is that deep down this person is so unsatisfied with their own life that they have to mask their own misery by putting others down. It’s pathetic, truly bottom feeding behavior. And at the end of the day it will leave that person alone in life with nothing to show for themselves other than a lot of disdain from the public. Does it really make that person feel superior? If so, that’s sad. When one can’t rise to the top based on their own merits of good deeds and accomplishments it shows nothing more than pure laziness.
If you want to see how I’d live up to my recently elected title in the YakkityYaks Personality Awards and what I’d say to Tyson, head on in to our Survivor forum! I really hope Sierra lasts, if nothing else, to watch him get more and more pissed each week.
