My favorite part of Survivor: Ka-China last night was not Jaime proving that she’s as blonde she looks by playing the fake immunity idol, although that was pretty effing hilarious. She was subsequently voted off and became the first member of the jury.
What I loved was the unveiling of the Immunity Necklace. It’s awesome. When I saw it, I was like, I could definitely rock that with a simple black dress and boots.
I just got done watching the TV Guide Channel’s Survivor: Ka-China Preview and thought I’d give y’all a rundown about what to expect this season, which begins tonight on CBS. Here is a partial clip from the hourlong preview:
By my rather lackadaisical count, in the preview alone, there were: Oh, and too many shots of Prayer Hands to count, enough to make my Chinese mama cry. Now here are the peeps that I predict I’ll be rooting for this season.
Let the chinky-ass games begin! Gong!
We’ve got 20 year-old “Frosti” on the left, a half-Japanese, half-Russian Parkour stud (which means he can acrobatically flip and twist off walls and shit), and James, the Lafayette, LA, 3rd-generation gravedigger in the center, with the sickest bod you’ve ever seen, and last, but not least, Todd, the gay Mormon flight attendant.
Oh, and too many shots of Prayer Hands to count, enough to make my Chinese mama cry.
Now here are the peeps that I predict I’ll be rooting for this season.

Alarming and, yet, not totally surprising news from the Mother Ship: “Suicides in China: 2.3 Times the Global Rate.” A couple crazy findings from a study conducted in 2002 in China:
Suicide is the highest ranking cause of death in the age group of 15 to 34.
Suicides in China make up 30% of all suicides in the world (1 million each year).
Seventy percent of those who commit suicide or attempt suicide never seek help with their problems.
Sad stuff. I hope China gets its shit together in the 21st c. and begins working on massive health care reform that makes mental health treatment socially acceptable and deals with depression, anxiety, and the shame people feel having these disorders.
That said, when Diana told me about the new Survivor: Ka-China cast, which includes “a grave digger, a chicken farmer (whose name is ‘Chicken’), a Christian talk radio host, a professional wrestler,” and that they’re reading Sun Tzu’s The Art of War (taking a cue from Mike Ovitz about twenty years too late), I couldn’t help but wish that one of these losers gets the China bug.
Survivor: Ka-China airs September 20 at 8 pm. Set your TiVos!
