Hello, good people, and welcome to Part Three of our Survivor 30, Worlds Apart season preview. Yesterday was all about the blue collars...the ones who "follow the rules." Well, today we're gonna talk about the ones who don't give a damn about your rules. The rolling stones that gather no moss. The clowns with the hearts of gold. The Spicolis. No Collar!!
The No Collar Tribe is called Nagarote and will wear red buffs to start the season. That's right; it's a primary colors kind of season in S30. Five of the six players on this tribe are from Cali and the sixth is from Arizona, so they're all west coasters. Most seem to gravitate toward the beach and all consider themselves to be free spirits.
Like I did with the other two tribes, I'm going to talk about each member of this tribe in the order I think they'll finish in the game. So let's get to it!
1) Looking at the No Collars, there is really only one prototypical "alpha male" type and believe it or not, I think Joe Anglim will be the best of this tribe and might even walk away as the winner of Survivor: Worlds Apart. First off, he has the longest bio ever put together for a Survivor contestant. This guy makes me look brief. I'll try to condense as much as I can. Joe's a jewelry designer and he's the one from 'Zona. Friends call him MacGyver because it seems like he can do anything. He's another person who's a longtime fan of the game, so getting on the show is a big deal for him. He's typical alpha male in that he's big, strong, in shape, good looking and young. He's comes off as different by not talking so much about how he'll physically dominate. He calls Survivor a numbers game, which is most definitely is, and his plan is to always find himself on the right side of the numbers. He intends to be on top of things enough so that if he's ever the target, he'll be able to turn the tables.
Joe has every intention to lie to win the game, but he's really not a fan of that method of play. The lone hole in his game is that he says he's a combination of...wait for it...Malcolm and Ozzy. If that's really true, he's in trouble, as those two are a combined 0-6 in Survivor. I really like Joe's chances of being the last No Collar standing and possibly even pleading his case to the jury in the final Tribal Council. Girls, make yourselves all pretty, cause MacGyver Joe is supremely datable.
2) The rest of this tribe is a toss-up for me. They all sound like people who could be first boots...but obviously, they can't all be, right? In second place, I'm going with a sleeper, Jenn Brown. Jenn's a sailing instructor in California. She's very young, but she comes off as older than she is. She's another one who's watched every season of the show and something about listening to her talk tells me she'll be able to make alliances and last in the game. Now, she does talk some nonsense, like how she wants the money so she can buy a jet-ski and she really wants a vineyard so she can make her own wine, even though she really doesn't know how to make wine. But she's also very tomboy-ish and feels like she's better off playing with the boys than the girls.
