Survivor Fiji Winner: Earl!!!


Most people who know me know that I am a Survivor junkie. I've seen them all and have an opinion about every single episode. I love the show... and would love to get on it someday...

Last night was the final night and one of my show favorites won.... Earl. But the greatest thing about his winning is that he won honest. He didn't lie. He didn't cheat. He didn't backstab and the only time that he did he admitted it, owned it and moved on.

Earl was a great player...

As opposed to Dreamz who lied, cheated, back stabbed. In the show, episode 11 or 12, he made a deal with my show favorite Yau-Man for a $600,000 truck to give Yau-Man the immunity necklace if he won it in the final four... Dreamz agreed... swore to God that he would do it because it would be a good example for his son. But when it came time to pay up, he refused and forfeited on the deal. He said it was because he was playing Yau-Man and never intended to... but that is a lie... I know it and everyone who watched the show knows that's a lie. But I guess it makes him sleep better at night to claim that it was all just part of the game.

See the reality is... you can't compartmentalize your life like that. Dreamz claims that it was just a game and just because he lied, cheated, back stabbed and went back on his word in the game, doesn't mean that he would or does do that in real life.

But I believe that the game is a microcosm of life. If you lie, cheat, backstab and go back on your word in the game, then you do in your life. Why would it okay to do it in a game on national TV if it's not okay in your life and not part of your person in reality? You can't separate out those two things. People act according to their nature... whether it's on TV or in their office or at home.

The worst part of Dreamz' whole deal is that he claims to be a Christian...
There's a great witness for you...

Christians are called to a higher standard Dreamz... hopefully you understand that someday.

As for the show, it was a great season! I was so pumped to see Earl win. He was the second best player... Yau-Man played the best game but was sunk when Dreamz went back on his word. But it was a great season.

Next season... China!!!
