"Far more men than women have been treated as "leaders," and host Jeff Probst has never been even one-tenth as interested in women contestants as he is in the men. He's essentially come right out and said so, that the women just tend not to be as interesting on the whole as the men."
But I cannot deny that having to sit through all this preening by bullies is beginning take a toll on my enjoyment, especially when I feel like the show and the host are on their side.
"I wouldn't be happily married to Monica for 22 years if I were a sexist or a misogynist. I'm a very liberal Democrat. A lot of stuff that was said didn't eve make the air because it just made no sense. The people down on Redemption Island spent very little time with me and were taking everything very personal. What wasn't shown one time was when I went down there the very first time, I opened up the floor for everyone to talk and every single person on my tribe, to a person, said glowing things about me. Ciera was like, "He gives me hugs and kisses my head when I feel bad about how well I didn't perform in a Duel." They said "He cooks, he cleans, he does everything around. He never bossed us around." And that's when they did show me say to Candice, "That's what he said and he said and she said and she said and your husband said." They only showed the tail end of that. They didn't show actually what everyone said."
2. From Probst's intro looking back on last week's episode: "[One tribe]'s plan was to take out the weak." In fact, that tribe's men had a plan to take out the women. Weakness really didn't enter into it. The intro simply took it as a given that "taking out the women" and "taking out the weak" are the same thing. If that's the case, you might think it's a casting problem.
