Survivor Millennials vs. Gen X: Meet Ciandre
Stimpy's Take
Septeber 6, 2016

Well if Survivor was based solely on ‘need’ then Ciandre would probably have a great shot at winning this thing.

However, since it ain’t (most times) she’s gonna have to bring more to the table than tales of an arduous youth and a tough current life.

And I ain’t seeing it.

I get that she’s driven and all, but like Chris, that and a buck fifty will get you a coffee at Tim Horton’s. Being driven in life doesn’t necessarily translate to doing well on Survivor.

And throughout Ciandre’s profile I don’t see anything that inspires me with confidence that she can win this thing.

Hell she loses me by referencing Spencer and Tasha (two NON-WINNERS mind you) by saying they got deep by being strategic and adaptive.

Yeah, okay but neither won! The goal shouldn’t be to ‘go far’. The goal should be to win!

You want to stop living paycheck to paycheck and waiting until payday to buy groceries? I’ll tell ya something sweetheart: Winning a million bucks can help a lot in that regard.

So tell me what you’re going to do to achieve that. Tell me that you’ll lay low early on and get the vibe of the tribe. Figure out how to best prove your worth at camp and in challenges. Tell me how you’re going to make deals with people on the side and tell me how you will have a plan but adapt it as necessary as you move through the game.

Ciandre doesn’t do that anywhere in her profile.

Hell, even when she’s asked why she’ll be the Sole-Survivor, she starts with ‘I’ve overcome so much adversity in my life’. Not to be harsh (but it’s what I do), but who gives a shit?

This is Survivor! You can play a sob-story all you want to, but ultimately there are going to be other people out there who are playing to win, and they are not gonna give a shit about the adversities you’ve overcome. Hell, if anything they’ll use that as motivation to boot your ass from the game.

Trust me no one is going to want to sit next to the poor, single mother in the finals.

Hence, probably no shot to win.
