"HUGE Spoiler We Missed"
LAST EDITED ON 05-12-01 AT 07:38 PM (EST)

I must take full responsibility for this one... I saw this spoiler right after Episode One, and didn't appreciate it's value. Then, I completely forgot about it, but it would have told us for sure that Wolf and Whitlow were in the final two.


Here's the spoiler:

Go to this page of the official Boot Camp website:
http://www.lmnotv.com/new/shows/bc/dismisschart.htm

At the top of the page, there are the photos of each of the 16 recruits. Underneath each of them is a two line description, such as "11 Votes" or "Taken By Lauder".

Highlight the region under Whitlow and Wolf. You will see "TX X" and "TaX X" in hidden text.


At the beginning of the season, Every recruit had "X X" written under their name except Whitlow and Wolf, who had this different code, and also Yaney who had "TX X" written under his name.

Now, I cannot explain why Yaney had TX, but after he left, the only two with hidden text under their names were Whitlow and Wolf... in other words, these are the final two.


Additionally, Wolf's text is different from Yaney and Whitlow, so Wolf must win the game!!!


In terms of programming, there is absolutely no logical reason to do this... at first, I assumed that is was either a typo, or a truly pathetic attempt at a source code spoiler (like MB used)... sadly it appears that the website programmers were as incompetent as the producers, and that they gave away the final two (and the winner) from the beginning.

The day after the first show, I went online, and read the source code on every page, looking for discrepancies that might point to the winner... sadly, I saw that one, and dismissed it... I truly apologize to this entire board for missing the biggest spoiler of this pathetic season.


Secondly, I have to give credit to AresMars... the only poster to mention this on the boards... I intentionally ignored the original post because, at the time, the CBS source code spoiler was still holding, and I did NOT want to get into another source code battle on this show... I decided that as long as no one responded to AresMars, I'd ignore it, and it would ultimately squash the spoiler faster than if I responded negatively to it. Sadly, AresMars was right, and I was wrong, so in his/her honor, here is the link to the original post:
http://community.survivorblows.com/boards/DCForumID16/9.shtml#3


Finally, a note to the producers:

Your shoddy production quality has left much to be desired this entire season. You may think that you've put one over on us, since we've gotten both the dismissed and discharged recruit wrong all season, but sadly, you are mistaken.

The truth is we just don't care. In editing the show, you rarely show why the recruits make the choices that they do. This could be because your interviewers did not ask the correct questions, and consequently missed out on the recruit's strategies, or it could be because you were so busy trying to make each ending a surprise that you left out all of the stuff that would have made the show logical.

You were so busy trying to copy MB that you missed out on all of the most important things... making the show watchable and fun, making the recruits likable and interesting, and making the story make sense.

Vidcapping the show and analyzing each episode has become a chore. I do not look forward to Wednesdays when I will watch Boot Camp, or to Thursdays when I have to get the preview posted. This show has been a disappointment.

It's unlikely that I will post on this spoiler board again, until it's time for the vote, when I will begrudgingly vote for Wolf to win. As the producers, you have drained all of the fun out of boot camp (lol) and turned what could have been a compelling and interesting show into a nightmare... I am rooting for MB to win his lawsuit, so that your show will end up costing more to make than it earned during its run.

A word of advice... if you want any of us to be remotely pleased with the finale (and I warn you-- you're still not going to be able to make a sequel), it had better make sense. Misdirection is fine, but we need to understand why each recruit votes the way that they do, and we'd better like (or at least respect) the winner. Now hurry back to your editing room and get started...

I'll be spoiling LC if anyone needs me.

You couldn't have said it better! You have summed up my feelings exactly. Lame, lame show. I can't stand Wolf, haven't been able to from the first episode. If he wins, well...YUCK!

Edited to add- Thank You! for all of your hard work. I have really enjoyed your posts here.

2nd edit- if you go to the bootcamp website, don't click on Wolf's picture...eewwwwww..don't say I didn't warn you.

First, when does LC start, and on what network?

Second, I totally agree. Boot Camp has lost so much spoiler support that it's not even funny. After the first couple of weeks, people stopped trying to spoil the show. Now that I've read about the stuff under the pictures on the link you gave, I appreciate your effort, but must honestly say that I don't care WHO wins the game. I just want it to be over.

There have been some very good things about it (like meeting BluSavana ), but the overall show is not fun for spoiler value. And the main reason I watch this show is the same reason I watched Survivor II: spoiling.

If they make a Boot Camp II, they better do a better job.

I tried to point this out on an earlier thread or yours

http://community.survivorblows.com/boards/DCForumID16/9.shtml

but since no one responded I assumed it was nothing. I am sorry now I didn't spend more time looking at it.
