Survivor Philipines: Jonathan Penner - Stimpy's Take, Interview, Bio And More
By Reality TV Calendar Senior Staff Writer Stimpy

He’s gonna have to pull a DoucheSlayer™ type move right outta the gate. In that, he’s gonna hafta build something, so any preconceptions his tribe may have of him get squashed.
Jonathan knows how to play the game, although he does lack a bit on the social side of things. There’s where things could get dicey.
He’s a known schemer, and plotter, and while those are good traits to have, it’s not good if everyone out there knows about it.
So, Jonathan’s gonna have to hit the ground running.
Can he do it? Actually, yeah, I think he can.
Any preconceptions the others might have, can be smoothed over, by hyping his experience in the game, and I think that’s the card Jonathan will play.
He’s gonna invite his tribe to ‘use him’, and will gladly play the role of advisor/guide, but will still have his scheming side working full time.
Toss in the fact that Penner has really prepped himself for the game this time around.
He’s packed on the pounds, so that any weight loss won’t knock him on his ass.
Which is a smart thing to do.
But again, he does have his reputation to deal with, and I’ve addressed how he might deal with that.
Can he overcome that preconception, and get his ass to the end?
Yeah, I think he can. I just don’t think he will.
It’s gonna be an uphill struggle for him right from the get-go, and, call it a hunch, I see something tripping him up along the way.
I wouldn’t mind seeing Penner get the win, since the man is such a huge fan of the game, with the added benefit that he knows how to play it.
Again, I just don’t know if it’ll happen.
If he can get past the early votes without his previous competitor tag putting a target on him, then there’s a good chance for him to get his ass to the end.
Just not a REAL good chance.
Like I said, if Penner can pull it off, I’ll doff my hat to the man, and drink a toast in his honor, ‘cause I won’t have a problem with it.
Dare I say it, being a previous competitor, with his reputation, if Penner were to pull of the win, I’d be fucking impressed.
But, if anyone can do it, Jonathan Penner can.
Hell even Coach Wade went from Douche™ to DoucheSlayer™, and Penner was never THAT big of an asshole.
Got thoughts? Post them at the end.
