  • Jenna M. shouldn't have won Survivor Amazon. And now you see why.

    I found this episode so emotional really. I feel so sorry for Jenna M. I mean, it was almost like she knew her mom was going to die soon! I'm glad she could be with her in her final days. I thought it was so touching how everybody supported her. Jerri and Amber were emotional and they were crying because they knew how it must be hard for her. I don't think her tribe mates helped her. I'm really disappointed with Colby by the way. He just seems so OUT of the game you know?

    Jenna M I wish you the best! Love.moreless
  • Jenna M shouldn't had participated in the first place!

    First of all, Jenna Morasca shouldn't had participated in this All-Star.

    Knowing that her mother would soon die from breast cancer.

    And that she should had given that spot to someone else.

    Say Rodger Bingham from Survivor Australian Outback.

    But I am glad that she got to be with her mom at her side the week that she did die.

    But IMO, that was a senseless waste for her to be there in the first place.moreless
  • She's still not voted out!

    The Survivor Amazon Jury were Stupid stupid STUPID!

    Quitting does not count to me of getting eliminated.

    Being voted REALLY counts as being eliminated.

    It seems that a underserving winner gets 2 fires without getting them buffed at ALL. That's stupid!

    I want a GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD winner to get 2 fires without getting them buffed. I hope you would be voted out in "Survivor: Millionaires", Jenna. That'll so far be the best moment of Matthew Von fans'.moreless
