 The game is definitely more about surviving the political atmosphere
than it is about surviving the wilderness, but I think it's pretty fun,
even though they've already gotten rid of nearly all of the interesting

 Rudy (the old ex-SEAL) isn't the only bonafied survivor, though. Gretchen,
who was voted off a few weeks ago, actually taught survival courses to
members of the Air Force. Greg was also involved with a survival program
of some sort. Most of the rest of them would have never made it in the
wilderness, I don't think.

 But, once you get past the fact that it's not about wilderness survival
skills, the show is interesting, at least to me.
