COLBY'S CHAT -- sorry, I accidentally hit the enter key before finishing the subject.

Colby Donaldson's Survivor: All-Stars Web Chat Transcript
3.12.04

Host: Thanks for being here today Colby, are you ready to take some questions?
Colby: Absolutely
Q: I was so sorry you had to suffer the wrath of that scorned witch, Jerri. I was so looking forward to seeing you whip Rob's butt in individual challenges. Is it true that you didn't realize until last night that you had a huge target on you?
Colby: I knew that I would at some point be a target. I didn't think they would vote me out so soon. I felt like the smartest thing we could do as a tribe was remain strong. Voting me out certainly doesn't strengthen the tribe. I too would have enjoyed going toe to toe with Rob. And I have to laugh about your comment regarding Jerri. Talk about having an ax to grind.

Q: You seemed a lot less vocal and had a lot less confessional time than when you were on Survivor: the Australian Outback. Was that a conscious decision because you didn't want the attention you were getting when you got back from Australia?
Colby: I think a lot of it had to do with the fact that you are playing a game filled with all stars. There are a lot of great players with great things to say, so players do not get as much air time as they did on their first series.

Q: The show won't be the same without you. Who did you think was playing the best game while you were on the island and does your opinion change when you see what they air on TV?
Colby: Thank you for the compliment. Watching the show on TV allows me to see what was happening over at Chapera. I thought Kathy was playing well during the game. I now see how much control Rob has over on his side. You should know, it is just as much fun to watch the show as a player as it is for you to watch it as a viewer because we never know what was going on if we did not see it.

Q: What was your prepared Jerri speech? Come on, we won't repeat it we promise.
Colby: I really do not even know now, I just know I would have liked to see her exit last night. Unfortunately she will always be able to brag about outlasting me on the All Stars. But at least you and I do not have to live with being Jerri Manthey.

Q: How do you feel about the fact the best players can't win in this edition because they are perceived as threats and are eliminated first?
Colby: I would like to say it is not fair, but this is a game that is simply just not fair. I had success in Australia playing the game the way I did. Unfortunately, there was no way to hide from others perceptions in this game. I wish I would have made it to the merge and had a chance to compete on my own. It will be interesting to see what type of players make it to the end.

Q: You have to admit Colby, that was a brilliantly executed maneuver on Lex's part. Did you see it coming at all?
Colby: I was surprised that Lex would vote for me last night. But the only way we will know if it was a good move or brilliant is to continue watching and see how well it serves him down the road.

Q: After watching the shows do you think Kathy would have voted against you as well?
Colby: I would hate to speculate, but I know she and Lex were pretty tight. If she had not voted for me last night it probably would have been at the next tribal council. But then I guess she is the only one who can really answer that question.

Q: Colby, sum up each member of your tribe in one word. By the way, you're the greatest!
Colby: Thanks so much for the compliment. Shii Ann - passive;
Kathy - savvy; Ethan - competitive; Lex - desperate; Jerri - unhappy.

Q: If Mogo Mogo won the RC who would you have suggested to take on the yacht?
Colby: Wow, great question. Probably Rupert, with the intention of not only gaining knowledge about Chapera but seeing if there was a possibility to swing him to our side.

Q: You shouldn't have been eliminated but that's life -- what revenge would you like to see come Jerri's way?
Colby: Oh, I am not a vengeful person at all. Best of luck to Jerri in the game, she will need it.

Q: Who annoyed you more, Shii Ann or Jerri?
Colby: That would be a tough call. I guess it depends on which day we are talking about. Either of them could wake up in a bad mood, and the rest of us had to deal with it. One thing I find interesting thought, Shii Ann talked last night about Jerri complaining. I distinctly remember Shii Ann complaining for the first two weeks straight. Specifically, I remember the first night we spent on our island. I remember Shii Ann complaining about the moon being too bright, and saying somebody please turn that light bulb off, I can not get any sleep. I knew at that time what kind of player I had on my team. Best of luck to Shii Ann, she will also need it.

Q: Can you tell us a bit about the "eye rolling at Jerri" incident... it was quite funny!
Colby: I am not sure, but I believe I rolled my eyes when Jerri made a comment about being easy to be around. Anyone who has played a game of Survivor and been on a tribe with Jerri knows that she is not the easiest person to coexist with.

Q: Why do you hate Jerri so much?
Colby: I need to be very clear on this. I do not hate Jerri Manthey, nor do I hate Shii Ann. In life when you encounter people that you do not have anything in common with - you chose to not develop friendships with those people. Jerri is one of those people. I am not the one that went into this game seeking revenge. Obviously Jerri did. I do not have anything personal against Jerri, she is simply not someone I would not chose to be around outside the realm of this game.

Q: On the show last night you said something about not wanting to lose to Boston Rob... I was just wondering if there was "bad blood" between the two of you and if so, in what sense?
Colby: Absolutely not. When I agreed with Ethan that I did not like losing to Boston Rob, that was simply one highly competitive person not wanting to lose to another very competitive player. It was nothing more than three kids on a playground wanting to compete in a game of dodge ball and hating the thought of losing that game to the others.

Q: So how did it feel to watch the slow-motion shots of your balance beam encounter with the RobFather, and see that Jeff had really made the call in error?
Colby: It was an error in judgment by Probst, but I do not hold him responsible for us losing that challenge. He makes judgment calls all the time in challenges, just like referees do in a football game. No one expects him to be perfect, least of all me, after all he is one of my closest friends.

Q: Does being a friend of Jeff's in real life have any kind of impact on you playing the game, with the other players?
Colby: It did not have any effect on the way I played the game or the way Jeff hosted the game. You would have to ask the other players if it had any effect on their perception of me. Jeff and I did not allow our personal relationship to enter the game in any way other than the occasional joking or banter before an after the challenges.

Q: You were a hoot on Curb Your Enthusiasm. Do you have anything in the works where you do not play yourself?
Colby: The goal is certainly to continue acting and playing other characters. I agreed to do Curb Your Enthusiasm because it was an opportunity to work with Larry David and be part of such a great show. I would normally not go on a show playing myself.

Q: How do you feel about the actions that have been going on between Rob and Amber, do you think it is appropriate?
Colby:

Q: If there was a Survivor "Worst Stars", who would be some of the contestants from past seasons?
Colby: I love your user name! As we saw with Tina being eliminated first in the All Stars, anyone can exit this game at anytime. That does not mean you are the worst player. It is such a fun adventure to be a part of. Just being chosen to play puts you in the winners circle in a lot of ways. So I can't really answer a question about the "worst". I did not look at any of the players that way.

Q: Final comments for the fans?
Colby: You will never know what an amazing experience both Australia and the All Stars have been. I have so many fond memories and truly did enjoy the opportunity to compete not once, but twice, in such an incredible game.

***ETA: Colby's answer to the Rob/Amber question is missing in the SFever transcript.

Doesnt sound to good for the MM tribe... but then I think we already knew that.

ICB,

Those are the comments that stuck out to me also. Although as you said, not a surprise, and we could've figured that out on our own.

Doesn't hold any grudges huh. Interesting that the only two people Kathy and Ethan were given good reviews while the one's who voted for him especially Lex (i.e. DESPERATE) got bad ones.

What an arrogant p***k! I can't believe how full of himself he is.

Oh, and I guess they left out the Amber/Rob romance because Colby started talking about him and his mom! LOL

Galaxy, I totally disagree with you on Colby being arrogant but that has nothing to do with spoilers!

However, I did find it interesting that he says Lex is desperate. Desperate for what? Lex was in good with the tribe and as most of us have been speculating even before last night's show...Lex and Kathy seem to be in control of the tribe. This was interesting!

I think Colby came across pretty well. He seems more likable outside the game than during it. The only thing I question is his understandable misperception that his friendship with Probst didn't affect the game. Whatever. I agree with the poster in another thread the Jiffy is like the 19th player, and it is very bothersome (IMO).

Rob/Amber question from live chat:
Hey Colby, I love you! How do you feel about what's been going on between Rob and Amber? Do you think it is appropriate?

Colby: I keep in mind that not only my grandparents, but also millions of children are watching. I probably would not allow something that personal to happen to me while on the show. But that's just me.

7. "RE: Colby'"
Colby was surprised at getting voted out so early because he believes they needed to keep the tribe strong at this point in the game. Hmmmm, OK. If that was the case, he would have worked to save Rich and booted Shii Ann when they had the chance.

What's that you say? Rich was too much of a threat and had to go? I see. And why was Colby booted? Too much of a threat.

Why was he surprised again?

He is an idiot and I'm glad he lost. Again.

Munson,
I agree 100%. I do not think Colby connects the two events, but they are SOOOOO connected. If Colby would have used his influence to take out Jerri or Shii Ann instead of Rich, he would have made the merge--- easy.

I think Colby is likable. He was spending 24 hours per day with Jerri and Shii ann. No wonder he did not seem as calm and friendly as he normally is.

Anyway, if you call Colby arrogant, what would you call Boston Rob?

Kathy - savvy; Ethan - competitive; Lex - desperate

I'm not a fan of the Colbster but have to give him credit as a level-headed strategist. His timely and crucial move to goad Varner and the others into voting for him instead of Keith post-merge sealed their jury status in the Outback series, which just goes to show the tremendous presence of mind he has so maybe Colby's uncanny understanding of pregnant women today is no fluke.
Surely some measure of self-control must have been involved when resisting Jerri's hot and heavy advances (--check Jiffy and he's the host. Okay, maybe Tex absopositively wouldn't have poked her with a ten-foot pole, but still was savvy enough not to let on.)
Compare that to our Don de la Don, the Robfaddah, and his doofus strategy, seduce-the-most-available-female-into-submission, and u just have to award props to Colby's game-plan and execution.
Yes he's arrogant, but it has served him well.
His description of Lex as "desperate" might have been borne out of hubris but it also smells like the truth and I'm a big fan of sexxy Lexxy.
We know the PirateWhoGuts (not to be confused with Rosie's brother and personal tailor, Rupert O'Donnell) underwent months of therapy soon after Survivor Africa to deal with his million dollar loss. This time round he's reacted by dyeing his hair into a chess set.Go figure.

His PR personnel, aka the missus, has recently told the media of the medical timebomb their family faces, explaining Lex's extreme need to win. Since the winner has already been decided by this time, her motivation could not be for pulling sympathy votes. I'm guessing that Lexx's gut failed him once more and he gets booted in a coupla eps. He's probably still trying to live this down esp. during this time when he's gettin incessant flaming for his colossally stoopid move. His wife, as a loved one would, is possibly trying to gain public empathy for his desperate mistake.
