When I went to “Survivor: Gabon” I pegged Michelle Chase as my pick for sole survivor. She went home three days later. When I went to “Survivor: Nicaragua” I picked Marty Piombo as the player who would go the distance. He went a bit further, but was still the tenth person to leave the game.
Why do I torture myself with these predictions? Why do I mislead you?
I assure you it isn’t intentional. Maybe I’m a poor judge of character. Maybe it’s impossible to know how someone will react to food and sleep deprivation. Maybe the game of “Survivor” is too complex to predict at such an early stage.
But I will tell you one thing I know for sure; Jim Rice is not going to win “Survivor: South Pacific.”
How do I know? Because he’s on top of my pre-season rankings…
“Survivor: South Pacific” premieres Wednesday, September 14, 2011 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
