One of the main reasons I’ve been lifting and working out so much lately is because this weekend I’m participating in Survivor 2010 down in Somerset, KY. One of my friends dad’s works for the recreational department of a prison and he always has a ton of ideas of competitions that he wants to use for their rec. department but he can’t because it’s a prison. So, he puts together all of his ideas and plans for over a year (no joke) and puts together a Survivor weekend for a bunch of us to compete in. Somerset is about 4 1/2 hours away from us, so it’s quite a drive. I have to work tomorrow, so we’ll be late, so I’m already starting with a “penalty” who knows what that will be!
There’s about 15 of us, and about 4/5 of the group has played college athletics..so needless to say, it’s going to be a challenge! They have done this two other years but I’m one of the only “rookies”. To be honest, I’ve never even watched the show Survivor, but I get a basic understanding of the game.
I’m really just hoping that I’m not the first voted off!! I think that would be the worst. There’s a good chance I’ll go first though since I’m a girl and a rookie. We’ll see though. I’ve gotta get in the first competition and make a name for myself!
They take our cell phones, keys, food, bags and everything when we get there. We camp out and can’t get our stuff until you get voted off. When your still in the game, you compete for food and drinks and who knows what else..as well as the advantage of your team not having to vote someone off that round. I think it will be hard for me because I’m not the type of person that is going to form alliances and lie to get to the end. I’m more of a go with the flow kinda girl and would rather avoid drama in any possible way. This may hurt me in the end.
The craziest part about it all is that there’s a camera crew and an actual tribal console where you go into a room that’s video taped and write down your vote and put it in the box and tell the camera why you’re voting that person off. I have to make sure not to offend anyone in the voting room, because it will all come out in the DVD!!!
I really have no idea what to expect, I just hope I can hold my own. WISH ME LUCK!!!!
