How long would you last on Survivor?

Asked by SuperMouse (30809points) February 4th, 2009

I’m pretty sure I could last at least until the tribes merge. I could make friends with people and work some alliances. I don’t think I could make it to the end though, I’m just not devious enough. How long do you think you would last before being voted off the island?

I’d manipulate my way right into spot #2. But like that Johnny guy, I doubt anyone would award me first place prize. But I’ll settle for second place. It’s still a good chunk of change.

I think I’d either get voted off early or make it to the final 6.

As much as I love the show, if I were on, I wouldn’t be able to get past the hunger part. I’d do much better on Amazing Race.

@jonsblond, I was thinking more just strategy-wise than the misery of being stuck out there. I would never make it past having to sleep in a make shift shelter or eating bugs, no way no how!

Strategy wise, top 4. I’m one of the nice girls that squeaks by, aligning myself with the right people. Kind of like Elisabeth from Australia.

Temporary game show with the possibility for major cash?
Yeah, I’ll screw a few people over if being nice doesn’t work. It’s not like I really have to see them when it’s over.

As long as I get to bring my favorite pillow. Whatever it takes. :)

Update: I’d make friends with my winning smile and charming, disarming demeanor, I’d be quite competent in the challenges, but the cute blonde that I made my alliance with would ultimately blindside me near the end of the game.

I’d mull that over for a while, watching reruns of the show and reminiscing to anyone that would listen. Fortunately, though, I had made friends with Jeff Probst off-camera and a late night drunken conversation would become a reprise in the show on another fans-vs-favorites season, at which point my grizzled canniness and physical devotion would take me to the top.

Not five minutes.

@andrew: It’s always the cute blondes. :)

Aethelwine's avatar

@andrew I wouldn’t blindside you. ;)

andrew's avatar

@asmonet Damn you Pavarti!

@jonsblond Yeah, that’s what you ALL say.

Nope. Wouldn’t make it past the first elimination round. I’d be voted right off. I’m not good at “cutting a biatch”, metaphorically speaking. Nor can I dine on grubs.

Name That Tune, on the other hand, there’s a game I’d win; that, The Price Is Right or Jeopardy.

Aethelwine's avatar

@andrew lol I’m no Parvati, but then I probably wouldn’t win.

cwilbur's avatar

I doubt I’d make it onto the show in the first place.

I would probably fall off the boat on the way to the island.

GAMBIT's avatar

I would come in second. I would work with the would be winner until it came down to just us two and he or she would win.

I would last until the beer ran out.

I’d like to think that I wouldn’t be voted off first because I couldn’t pull my own weight in challenges, but I think some of the physical stuff would make me a target. I’m not sure I could make it through the round of eating gross foods. I think I’d make it at least to the merge.

PupnTaco's avatar

I imagine I’d have the mental toughness to make it to the end and a fair amount of interpersonal savvy to deal with different personalities. I don’t have bad hair days or freakouts. I’m not physically primo but determination goes a long way on those contests.

The question is: would the others warm to me fast enough to let me stick around?

Four, maybe five hours?

I heart my technologically advanced society.
