Survivor One World: Leif Manson - Stimpy's Take, Interview, Bio And More
By Reality TV Calendar Senior Staff Writer Stimpy

Well, I suppose it was bound to happen sooner or later.
Yup, we’ve got us a ‘wee’ person on Survivor.
Immediately, one would think his stature would be a reason to get rid of him. Let’s be honest here folks, in some ways his stature will probably be a liability in challenges.
However, this society, being what it is, some may be loathe to dump him early, just because he’s short of stature.
In other words, I think there may be one or two out there, who may just want to take Leif under their wing and watch out for the guy. Thus, enabling him to go farther in the game.
Then, at some point, someone is gonna sit back and realize ‘if we’re at the end against him, we’re fucked. I mean come on! Who’s not gonna vote for the midget to win?’.
And he’ll go bye-bye.
Either that, or he’ll be one of the first to go.
I know. Hedge much Stimpy?
But that’s what it boils down to here folks.
We’ve had a deaf chick in Christy back during Amazon, and two amputees to play this game - Chad in Vanuatu and Kelly in Nicaragua.
The thing is, each of those individuals brought something else to the game.
Namely, an idea of how it was played.
I don’t get that from Leif. Actually, I don’t get much from Leif.
Your greatest claim to fame is smoking turkey, or some other dead animal for family feasts? Oh, and you met Billy Barty and Mickey Rooney?
You liken yourself to Jud (Fabio) because he was also underestimated?
Yeah, maybe, but he wasn’t a midget either. And, he got to the end by going on an immunity run.
Ya think Leif can do that?
Why is he out there? To build self-confidence.
Dude? Yer twenty-seven. If you don’t have self-confidence yet, yer not gonna get it.
Why does he think he’ll do well? Ah, well here he’s just clueless as many others. He knows his outdoors schtick.
Whoop-de-fucking-doo. Y’know there’s only one two-time winner of Survivor, and trust me on this folks, Sandra probably still couldn’t make fire if you put a gun to her head.
It’s a good trait to have, but it is not the end all, be all of succeeding in this game.
Why does he think he’ll win? Oh, because he’s ready, willing and beyond able to ‘outwit, outlast and outplay’ the others.
Great. Any idea on how yer gonna do that Leif?
Or are we just reciting the company line here?
Let’s jump back and look at those ‘pet peeves’. Being taken advantage of, and back-stabbers.
Welcome to Survivor Leif.
Little person, ‘wee’ person, midget, I don’t care what you want to be called. If you bring something to the table, I’ll give you props.
Christy did. Chad did, and to a certain extent Kelly did.
I get nuthin’ from Leif.
So, to reiterate. He’ll either get gunned early because he’s small, or someone will watch out for him for a period of time, but he’ll get no where near the end, and thus:
No chance to win.
Got thoughts? Post them at the end.
