Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X Casual Corner Episode 9


Shawn Swaney takes his weekly dive into Casual Corner to check out the weird and wonderful comments of the Survivor Facebook page.

Yes, it’s true. A matter of a few short months ago, I chose a certain happy-go-lucky snowboard instructor as my winner pick. When we all were given a ticket to watch the S.S. Pregnancy Drama set sail, I grabbed my popcorn, but still hoped for his eventual victory. Now that the dust has settled, I will miss my winner pick sticking his foot in his mouth for 40 minutes a week.

So, I dedicate this edition of Casual Corner to you, the castaway that most loved to hate. This edition, like Taylor’s personality, will be entirely scatterbrained for no legitimate rhyme or reason.

Don’t let Neal Gottlieb hear you say that.

You know, the edit really forgot about this one.

If posting on Survivor’s Facebook was actually a legitimate casting strategy, trust me, I’d be on that like Probst on alpha males.

fb18

You’re not wrong there. The folks in the Great White North can’t see anything past that firewall.

fb17

What is this? Casuals making sense?!

fb16

Again, preach it!

fb15

I HIGHLY doubt that Taylor, who, last I checked, only follows Troyzan and the NRA on Twitter, voted blue. But then again, does the man who has such a strong opinion on the electoral college actually vote?

fb14

Yes, because on Taylor’s list of skills and hobbies, vampirism makes the cut…

fb13

As a big fan, I’d assume you’d actually watch the show before you go trotting over to Facebook to find out what happens.

fb12

So, like how they started this season?

Technically in this metaphor, Taylor is the sharpest marble in the barrel.

fb9

STOP THE PRESSES; APRIL FOOLS DAY IS EARLY THIS YEAR!

fb8

Yes, and we can send him on foreign missions to the Dakotas and other far off lands.

fb7

Ah yes, I have enjoyed watching Sunday “I get as much screen time as anyone here” Burquest this season…

1) Jay was indeed referring to Taylor.
2) Some sailboats actually – and you’ll never believe this – travel by wind.

fb4

I’m sorry, but Taylor was the best person on this cast to embody their generational stereotypes.

fb5

Nope, nope, nope. Not touching this one. Poor choice of words? Probably. Has that ever stopped me before? Not this time.
