Jennifer Lanzetti (Brawn tribe) - 2nd eliminated (Feb. 24)


Recommended Posts

Jennifer Lanzetti



Name (Age): Jennifer Lanzetti (38)

Tribe Designation: Brawn

Current Residence: Salt Lake City, Utah

Occupation: Contractor

Personal Claim to Fame: Coming back to life after endometriosis, cancer and drug addiction, getting my engineering degree and starting my own construction technology company. Inspiration in Life: Martin Luther King Jr. When he spoke, the whole world stopped to listen, whether they liked him or not. That’s the ticket in the world and in this challenge. Be yourself, don’t worry about who is trying to sabotage you. Just keep moving forward and focus on the goal. It takes confidence and big moves!

Hobbies: Riding motorcycles, eating good food, playing board games and adventure racing.

Pet Peeves: Slow drivers, people who chew with their mouth open, when people end a sentence with a preposition, when girls say the word “like,� and assholes.

3 Words to Describe You: Blunt, not fragile and bad-ass chick.

If You Could Have 3 Things on the Island What Would They Be and Why? Metal detector, snuggie and a nut-cracker.

SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Kim Spradlin. She had strategy: making as many friends as possible, having alliances and sub-alliances. She was just “herself,� which is exactly how I play everyday life. I earn respect, like Kim, by telling you how it is. I’m practical but also love the excitement of making big moves.

Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: This once in a lifetime chance is filled with challenges and adventure. I want to live 100 years, not 1 year 100 times over. I want tree mail instead of email. I like playing games, getting my hands dirty, causing trouble and getting away with it! Also, for the money. I’m ready to adopt children and start a family.

Why You Think You’ll “Survive� SURVIVOR: I have construction knowledge, love to cook and play games, I am fun to be around, never quit, can fast for days and I am a hard worker!

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: Winning Survivor takes practice- practice surviving. I’ve been through hell and back many times. Not saying I never get scared, but I just never let fear stop me. I will be the final survivor because I have prepared physically, mentally and socially! Winning doesn’t take beauty, brains or brawn- it takes heart!

Following Episode 1: One of the more eye-catching, or "ear-catching," moments of this episode involved Jennifer painfully enduring a bug that crawled in her ear. This is likely the beginning of what was promised to be the most painful season of Survivor to date. Fortunately, she came out okay and appears to be in a good position within her alliance.

Following Episode 2: Jennifer overthought and over-strategized at a point in the game when it is too early to be plotting against the perceived power players. The easy play was to follow up on her tribe's original plan to eliminate the proverbial weak link, Alecia, but Jennifer's inability to adapt to her unrefined tribemates became her undoing, and she quickly fell under suspicion at tribal council and garnered the votes of two of her three pervious allies. This turn of events was remarkably similar to the elimination of Monica from last season, although the painful part was watching Jennifer come to the realization that she had done it to herself (as opposed to Monica who was blindsided and probably still does not realize where she went wrong).

Regardless of how Jenny was actually going to vote at tribal council... (and I still can't figure out if she was going to stick with her original alliance and vote out Alecia, or go with the girls and vote out one of the guys)... the problem, and what REALLY blew up her game, (besides being wishy-washy and second guessing herself), was JEFF PROBST and his infernal questions.

Honestly, it's come to my attention in the past several seasons that his questioning is getting more invasive and in-depth, and it's getting harder to keep a poker face around him, because he even calls out people's eye-rolling behaviour and facial expressions, when only he can even see it.

I understand how tribal council is great because it gives the viewing audience a chance to get a snapshot of what each member of the tribe is thinking at that point in time, but it would be in their best interest to sometimes keep it vague, or even just nod and smile and agree with what he says and leave it at that, or even just say "sorry, no comment" or "I plead the 5th".

Maybe it's in their contracts that they MUST answer Jeff fully and honestly, because otherwise it just makes no sense.
