I grew up poor in a rural town in N.C. and never had formal swimming lessons. I happened to have a more well-off friend whose family had a pool, and she taught me swimming basics in elementary school. If not for her, I probably wouldn't have learned until college (IIRC our high-school water-safety section in middle-school health class only really involved learning how to tread water, plus textbook boating stuff about port, starboard and buoys). I can freestyle and backstroke enough to pass the swim test I needed to graduate UNC, and can get back and forth on laps, but my form is utterly terrible. Everybody SHOULD know how to swim, but not everybody does. It sounded like Keith had at least tried to learn before coming on the show.
Yes, it is quite different! I went snorkeling in the Florida Keys and probably would have drowned if not for my life-vest. I still swallowed a heck of a lot of ocean water thanks to all the waves. Calm pool water is a lot different than ocean water! I'm sure that affected Keith a lot, too.
Keith seems sweet but not long for the game. And there is that Duke factor for this UNC girl.... 😉
I'd have been hella pissed if somebody had moved my clothes without asking. Reem really did herself no favors, especially at tribal council.
I love Aubrey and I don't like that guy targeting her. He may be technically right about not wanting a veteran to go far, but he put me off with his manner about it and the automatic targeting of the woman instead of the guy (even if the guy is a challenge monster in Joe).
