"Survivor" finale packs a punch and a surprise lesbian? - AfterEllen
Jeff Probst: Ozzy Lusth and Amanda Kimmel's 'Survivor' romance real. " Parvati's playing James, and I'm not sure James cares one way or the. caption] Remember how cute and cuddly Ozzy and Amanda were on Survivor: Micronesia? They were the go-to showmance for that. During the season premiere of Survivor: Micronesia, James and Parvati were quick to join forces with another duo on the Favorites Tribe—Amanda and.
The women then proceeded, through a series of blindsides and incredible persuasion, to pick off all the remaining men. Alexis was also voted off the island when the last man standing won immunity, making her the one female casualty of their alliance.
Parvati and Natalie especially were gleeful about it, accepting and celebrating stereotypes about women being vicious black widows. It was an alliance straight out of Gossip Girl. In the end, the final two castaways were Parvati and Amanda, both something women who had developed romantic relationships with two of the men, Ozzy Lusth who is still, apparently, dating Amanda and James Clement.
But they did not emerge unscathed from the game; during the jury, every castaway whom Parvati and Amanda helped to vote out lashed out at them. Amanda was criticized for her whining and apparent lack of sincerity during tribal council; Parvati was called out for her backstabbing and manipulation.
The most unusual exchange, however, occurred between Parvati and Natalie: You have labeled yourself as a flirt. So she goes back to camp after the challenge is over, and she completely breaks down. Oh, and also, I think James might have been boning her.
So then there's that. Awww yeah Okay, so here we go. Here comes the good stuff Amanda goes back to camp, and she gives us one of the saddest, most pathetic, most teary-eyed confessionals in Survivor history. She sits down for the cameras and we get this very sad interview. I see him walk down that beach. Meanwhile, are her teammates on the Heroes tribe as broken up about this as she is? Yeah, maybe not so much.
So the Heroes hang around camp all day and they wait for the inevitable.
They wait for the announcement that James has been evacuated from the game for good. They wait for the moment where Jeff Probst is going to walk up the beach and deliver the bad news to everyone. The Heroes, just waiting "This is terrible.
Here is the scene that I described earlier as a "holy shit, I'm rolling on the floor laughing, please rewind that and tell me that happened for real" moment. Swear to God, the first time I saw this, I laughed so hard that I physically fell down off the couch. Amanda is so excited to see James coming back to camp that she decides to run to him Only it's not, like, a human run For some ungodly reason, Amanda bounces up and down and flops her arms around like a fish when she is running I so wish I could convey the awkwardness of the Amanda Run in pictures.
There is no way that pictures can convey how goofy her running style is. All I can do is present the Amanda Floppy Arm run in gif format, and you can enjoy it for yourself. So here you go. The beginning of the Amanda Run. I really hope you aren't drinking soda right now. By the way, want to turn this scene into, as they say on The Daily Show, "a moment of zen"?
Your life will never be the same again.
Amanda runs to James
What I love about this scene is that the editors managed to capture every single second of it. Every single little millisecond of the goofiest run in Survivor history is preserved for us in the fifth episode of Survivor: The camera follows her right along the beach and she bounces and flops and flails like a fish all the way.
