  1. I think it’s more likely she’s lying about her age now since those “sugar daddies” like them young. I don't think it’s victim blaming to recognize the unnecessary risks Mackenzie took and I DO think it’s helpful to point those out so hopefully other young girls can learn from it. Kids tend to think they’re invincible. Recognizing risky behavior/actions will hopefully save someone else from making the same choices. When it comes down to it, it’s obviously the perpetrators fault this happened, but if kids think twice about meeting strangers at 2am in an isolated place- that’s a good thing.
  2. If you’re interested in reading about the real Marie, I linked a couple articles above.
  3. I remember as a kid being able to hold it together until I would see my mom and then I would start to cry. I think that is a common thing for a lot of people who are able to hold their emotions in check with people they don’t know, but then when they have the unconditional love of their friends and family they feel like they finally can let go.
  4. This article is very interesting to read about the comparison between the true story and the series. And here is the original story the show is based on. My biggest frustration, outrage and dismay is the fact that this guy would've been stopped with his FIRST rape if those cops had actually done their job!!
  5. I watched it, but I was disgusted the whole time. I got zero sense of guilt or even recognizing they did anything wrong by either of those girls. The movie (the small snippets we saw) also doesn't seem to make them accountable for anything. I wish they had gotten into a lot more trouble as they really deserved it!!
  6. This episode broke my heart. The way those officers browbeat Marie and made her retract her statement was disgusting. I also hated the way the hospital staff was so cold and uncaring while they took care of her.
  7. This is exactly how I feel about her, too.
  8. My take was more that he IS infertile and this is his one chance to be a dad. I don't agree with that sentiment as there are many ways he can still be a father (adoption, etc), but it's a pretty standard soap storyline.
  9. To be fair, Jason was trying and it was Camille who said "he'd never be able to get over it". I hated when she said that because I feel it was just an easy excuse for her to bail. I mean, he's not THAT old. He doesn't necessarily need viagra. She looks like she's been hitting a LOT more than just botox.... I think I'm about the only one who liked Brandon and Kelly. I was so upset when they called off their wedding. 😞 Admittedly, it was late last night when I watched this and I was tired from working both my jobs, but I didn't get that it wasn't important at all. Gabby was telling her husband he's her best friend, etc, but I never got out of that conversation that she was "done" exploring and was going back to the marriage. She even said she was still very confused. They were just having an adult conversation vs yelling and crying so maybe that's why you felt they were just "meh" about it, but it was a refreshing change to see two adults communicate and still not really have a resolution.
  10. I'd find that really interesting if I could read it. 😕 Not your fault. ETA: Found this link which gives a much bigger view of the map. 🙂
  11. From CBS.com Mentor "Boston" Rob Mariano Biography Age: 43 Previous seasons of Survivor: Marquesas, All-Stars, Heroes vs. Villains, Redemption Island (winner) What specific accomplishments do you think ultimately earned you the moniker of "Idol" when it comes to Survivor? I've played Survivor four times over the course of nearly two decades. I have seen the evolution of the game and I am proficient in the three main aspects of the game: the social component, the physical component, and the strategic/psychological component. I wouldn't necessarily call myself an idol—I didn't come up with that idea—but I definitely know what I'm doing! What do you think you can teach the new castaways to help them become Sole Survivor? I understand the basics: everything from how to start a fire, build a shelter, and catch fish. And the more complex, social dynamics of the game—and of course, different strategic approaches. How will being a mentor present a different challenge for you than actually competing in the game? I think the hardest thing about being a mentor for myself is not being able to actually compete. I am competitive by nature, so to stand on the sidelines and watch the game being played is going to be difficult. Given that you're not playing Survivor in the traditional sense, what element of the game are looking forward to NOT having to endure? The fact that they can't vote me off will give me time to really enjoy the survival aspect of the game (camp life). My background is in construction so I plan to concentrate on building the ultimate shelter. The best one Survivor has ever seen!
  12. From CBS.com Sandra Diaz-Twine Biography Age: 45 Previous seasons of Survivor: Pearl Islands (winner), Heroes vs. Villains (winner), Game Changers What specific accomplishments do you think ultimately earned you the moniker of "Idol" when it comes to Survivor? This is probably the easiest question to answer. I am considered an Idol because I am the only castaway to ever win the game twice and to this day that has never happened again. I won the first season I ever appeared on back in 2003 and also won the second season I ever appeared on back in 2010. I'm not an Idol because I say I'm an Idol, but because my record proves it. Nine years ago and 19 seasons ago I became known as the Queen, and to this day no one has ever come close to tying my record. What do you think you can teach the new castaways to help them become Sole Survivor? I'm an open book when it comes to the seasons I've played in. I plan on sharing all aspects of the game with the castaways. I will be able to discuss situations like being flexible and how to go with the flow when you have no control over what the majority wants to do at a given time. How to build a strong alliance, by trusting people you genuinely like and share common interests with. And that no one is perfect, there's no way to play a perfect game, so when you make a mistake, own it. What part of the game do you think new castaways usually underestimate? The new castaways underestimate how hard the social part of the game truly is. Hard because there's people you will automatically like and people you will automatically dislike. With those you like, you immediately build a bond and trust, yet there can only be one winner. It's easy to vote off people you dislike, but when all those people are gone, now you have to start voting off the ones you consider friends. And these are the friends that you just blindsided and 100 percent of the time are upset that you voted them off and yet you still have to also convince them to give you the million dollar prize. It's really a juggling act. How will being a mentor present a different challenge for you than actually competing in the game? Being a mentor is actually easier than playing the game, because you don't have to focus on the daily aspects of Survivor. I know I'm not playing for the million dollars. I know I will not participate in any challenges (hooray). And I know I will never enter the game in some crazy twist. All I have to do is get to know the new players, listen to them carefully, and advise them. In other words, I plan on sharing the knowledge I have gained after playing for 94 consecutive days. I'm going to provide guidance, but at the end of the day each person has to make their own decisions and play their own game. Given that you're not playing Survivor in the traditional sense, what element of the game are looking forward to NOT having to endure? I'm over the moon knowing I don't have to endure a single challenge the entire season.

    S39 Dan Spilo

    From CBS.com Dan Spilo Biography Dan Spilo Age: 48 Hometown: New York City Current residence: Los Angeles Occupation: Talent Manager Hobbies: Adventure travel, movies, and fitness. Pet peeves: Trouble dealing with stubborn people but I respect EQ as much as IQ, ignorance, and close-mindedness. Three words to describe you: Hardworking, articulate, and charming. What accomplishment are you most proud of? Raising two loving, considerate boys, and working hard to keep a marriage fun, loving, and passionate for 20 years. Who or what is your inspiration in life? I don't have a hero, per se—Jane Goodall and people like her who have a selfless devotion to something in the way she did. The way she illuminated the life of chimpanzees, and never let anything get in her way, is heroic to me. What's one thing we wouldn't know from seeing a photo of you? That I am a big softy. As my first client always reminds me, I cried at Finding Nemo. Which Survivor contestant are you most like? Crowley and Kwon because of background, Westman and Boston Rob for social gameplay, and Cochran because he's freaking cool and weird. Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I think I have the basic, if not superior, physicality to be useful to the Tribe. More importantly, I have an incredible ability to know what people need and to make them feel good, and to make myself critical in their success.
  14. From CBS.com Jamal Shipman Biography Age: 33 Hometown: Jersey City, New Jersey Current residence: Providence, Rhode Island Occupation: College Administrator Hobbies: Coaching basketball, taking West African and salsa dance lessons, teaching myself the bass guitar, and losing in fantasy football leagues. Pet peeves: I hate bugs that insist on leaving behind itchy, painful bumps. I don't mind sharing my blood with you, but why the discomfort? Why the ache? It's pretty rude if you ask me. Three words to describe you: Balanced, inquisitive, and present. What accomplishment are you most proud of? My educational path is something I'm most proud of. After 8 years at P.S. 27, a Jersey City public school where my mom is still a teacher, I was accepted to the Prep for Prep program in New York. That experience prepared me for high school at Milton Academy, a New England prep school, which opened the door for me to attend and graduate from Brown University, an Ivy League school in Providence, R.I. With some bumps along the way and lots of help from those who care about me, I was able to make it through and be where I am today. Who or what is your inspiration in life? Barack Obama. I wasn't all that politically aware prior to his run for president. He spoke to me. He inspired me to get involved and care about our world in a more engaged way. I've read his books, watched his speeches, and followed his presidency. The thoughtfulness, grace, optimism, and commitment he showed is absolutely uplifting. If we can approach life with his same attitude and aspire towards excellence the way he does, we'd all be better off. What's one thing we wouldn't know from seeing a photo of you? You wouldn't know that while I was a tri-varsity athlete by my junior year in high school, I was also in the school a cappella group, played the trumpet in the orchestra, and played a role in the spring play! You can't judge a book by its cover. Which Survivor contestant are you most like? I most relate to Jeremy. I think he played the game the second time similarly to how I would want to play it. Wendell, Officer Sarah, and Christian are all players I relate to, as well. Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I've been intensely studying this game. I feel like I have a good handle on what to do in order to give myself the best shot at making it to the end with enough good will to get votes. People will be happy to write my name at the end.
  15. From CBS.com Tommy Sheehan Biography Age: 26 Hometown: Bayville, New York Current residence: Long Beach, New York Occupation: 4th Grade Teacher Hobbies: Surfing, sports (basketball, volleyball, football), and asking questions to my magic eight ball. Pet peeves: I hate bullies who think they are better than everyone else and talk down to others. I also cannot stand grumpy and serious people. Lighten up, life is amazing, let me see that smile. LOL. Three words to describe you: Outgoing, competitive, and goofy. What accomplishment are you most proud of? I am proud of all the children's lives I have changed teaching. Also, I have a really killer Disney coffee mug collection. Who or what is your inspiration in life? My parents. My dad has always instilled the Sheehan motto in my head "Get it done." There are no excuses, just get the job done, whatever it is. He is also the life of the party and lives each day like it is his last. My mom inspires me to care for others. She is the most caring individual I know and I hope to one day have half the heart she does. What's one thing we wouldn't know from seeing a photo of you? I have the biggest heart. I love people and would do anything to help them, especially kids. Which Survivor contestant are you most like? I would say if you combined David Wright's strategy, Davie's social game, and a pinch of Amanda Kimmel's likeability. These three players were fans of the game, played hard, and did everything they could do with the hands they were dealt. What's your primary motivation for being on Survivor? I am on the show to do something most people dream about. I am there to win the game and get the million dollars. Those are my only motivations. If I happen to make people smile and help them escape whatever hardships are going on in their lives for an hour a week, that is a huge plus too. Why do you think you'll "survive" Survivor? I am physical and can win challenges, but that won't win Survivor. What wins Survivor is the time spent opening up and connecting to people. When you have real connections with people they will keep you around longer. Also, I am there to win the game. I see myself finding idols, making moves and leading blindsides.
