With all the excitement over the official cast lineup (and proof that I am indeed omnipotent) for Survivor 20 (which is EXACTLY what I posted almost 2 months ago), I just had to contact my Survivor Insider and ask one all important question: Was Shambo asked to be on Survivor 20? If yes, then where the hell is she?! You see, I adore The Shambo and any opportunity to see my princess again needs to be taken, stroked, and lovingly nurtured.
Once again my Insider delivered not only the answer, but some KILLER gossip!
Here we go...
"Yes, she was asked to be on Survivor 20, but she said no because she was in such a dangerous physical state by the end of 19. Going without food and water for so long had taken its toll. By the time she got to Ponderosa her kidneys had almost shut down completely and she was put on a liquid macrobiotic diet for three weeks."
"The other thing people don't know is that on day 14, [Shambo] dislocated her neck during a challenge. It took the med team 2 hours to get it back in place, and she was on codeine for the rest of her time in the game. The day she sang "Eye [of] the Tiger" she was totally high on codeine."
I love it! Not the pain or injury part, but the fact that Shambo was totally wasted when singing that song.
"When she won the reward challenge and hung out with the Samoan tribe, they gave her Kava Kava (which is a potent pain-killer that makes you feel drunk). This is why she was so giggly that night with Jaison and Russell. She said it was the first time her neck was not hurting, and she loved it."
I want that kind of Kava Kava! I've got Kava Kava tea right here and it does nothing for me other than make me tinkle.
"Many people were wondering why she did so poorly in the physical challenges (especially softball, cuz she is really good at it) and the reason is the neck injury..."
OK here's the good part...
"It is a big secret, because supposedly once you get injured, you're not supposed to stay in the game if you need medication. But CBS wanted her to stay in the game. "
*bites fist* Awesome. That's the kind of dirt I love.
Poor Shambo. However, I'm thrilled CBS made the wise decision to keep her in the game. Smart move on their part.
So, where do we go from here with Shambo and Survivor? Well, if the rumors are true and the producers are planning to do a new season locale followed by an immediate taping of another All-Stars (just like with Samoa), then I have no doubt that the Shambolicious One will be back in due time.
I hope everyone is having a great 2010 and stay tuned because cast videos and my infamously wrong first impressions will be coming in the very near future. Comment it out bitches and have a great day!
