|The next Survivor game took
place in Australia as many of you already realize. But what you may not realize is the
Australian press covered many stories associated with the show. These stories didnt
make it to the states due to U.S. election fiasco. Some great headlines and stories were
missed, so as a public service, we at Ghastly Humour collected these headlines to present
for your edification.
Paul Hogan Terrorizes Survivor Contestant
The contestant was quoted as saying, He kept shouting, thats not a knife, this is a knife! Paul Hogan has also taken to driving around the set in his Subaru OutBack, chasing down contestants in mid-challenge, throwing boomerangs out the window to knock them flat.
Baby Kangaroo Mistaken for Giant Mouse
"Sufferin Sucatash, that was one big mouse!" Sylvester, one of the Survivor contestants spent a great deal of time following the baby kangaroo around the set only to be trounced, time and time again, by the swift kicking feet and boxing like style of the kangaroo.
Tasmanian Devil Eats Survivor Contestant
A crying Jeff Probst said, "They knew the dangers. We told them explicitely, dont taunt Taz, dont taunt Taz."
Survivor - Crocodile Hunter Mix-Up
In a hilarious but dangerous mix-up, the production crews of Survivor and Crocodile Hunter ended up in the wrong location. When the Survivor contestants were asked to chase down and hold deadly snakes, they just thought it was another zany immunity challenge. Unfortunately, there is no immunity to the bite of the Australian Brown Snake. On the other set, Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin laughed when asked to wallow in mud as wildlife around him kept trying to eat him. "Really, guys, this isnt up close and dangerous enough for the show," Steve said as Funnel-Web spiders crawled along his arms and a demon duck of doom nipped at his toes.
Survivor Losers Fight Over Toilet
Police were called in to break up a fight at the Australian hotel where the losers from Survivor were staying after being voted out of the tribes. It seems the Americans were having a fight over which way the water swirled when the toilet was flushed. This unremarkable incident is the eighth fight Aussie police had to break up between Americans over swirling toilet water this month.
