Tragedy struck “Survivor’s” Frenchadaptation “Koh Lanta” Friday, March 22 when 25-year-old contestant Gerald Babin died after suffering a heart attack during “shipwreck” challenge that also included a tug of war in Cambodia.
The show was immediately canceled for the season as Channel TF1 and Adventure Line Productions flew the contestants back from Cambodia to Paris over the weekend. Neither the network nor the production company has yet said whether they plan to continue “Koh Lanta” for future seasons.
Well, surprise surprise. The going gets tough….and the French give up….TWICE. Anybody that has ever taken a basic history class is aware of the fact that France waves the white flag if they hear a loud noise. That being said, I don’t even know how they have a French version of the show “Survivor”. “Survivor” is about fighting and working hard to be better than your competition. I am assuming the French version is just one episode consisting of a single contest…see who can wave the white flag the fastest and then lay down on the ground and allow yourself to be invaded and plundered. This French dude took it to the next level…..he laid down and DIED. In my mind…he is the champion. That is how the French roll….lay down and wait to die. He has it down pat. He wins.
I said earlier that the French gave up twice because not only did this guy just lay down and die….but then the producers decide to shut down the entire show….pussies. The show is called “Survivor”…..you already have an entire group of people that out SURVIVED another competitor!!! That is fucking ratings GOLD!!! “This season on Survivor…..SOMEONE FUCKING DIES!!!” That is how that shit would have been advertised in America. No holds barred when it comes to reality TV in our good old U…S….of…A. Just look at “Teen Mom”….they are fucking up people’s lives on purpose for ratings. Someone dies?!?! That gives an American producer an instant hard on….almost like a shark smelling blood in the water.
Bottom line is…..don’t have a show called “Survivor” and then get all pissy when people SURVIVE!! That is like naming a show “Crazy Sexy Time” and then shutting it down when someone has wild monkey sex. Get your shit together France. Wait….what’s that….I think I hear the Germans coming…..
