There's Something About Shmady

My husband and I played a game once (mostly because we're dorks) that if we were stranded on a desert island, what 10 medications would to take with you. Mine were: aspirin, benadryl, valium, augmentin (broad spectrum antibiotic), Some sort of narcotic pain reliever, like Tylenol #3's or maybe morphine, prenisone (a steroid), eye drops with both anti-biotic and steroid, a steroid cream, ibuprofen, and a different class of anti-biotic to cover what augmentin misses.

So where to begin about Yve? Yve will always hold a special place for me, not only because she was in my rock-solid, though short-lived alliance, but also because of Finals in LA. I remember that week with perfect clarity, somewhat even more so than when I was in Nicaragua, possibly because we were better rested and fed during that week, or possibly because I was still in the process of fighting for my spot and I was just in a heightened sense of awareness.
Anyways, Yve was the very first person I saw in LA. Someone is going to ask, how did you recognize other contestants? For anyone who has not been through the process, it’s hard to explain, but it’s so easy. For one, they are the ones walking around completely by themselves, not making eye contact with anyone, and never speaking to anyone. Also, though you can find multiple threads all over this site about how fat/ugly/hideous we all are in any given season, but make no mistake: survivor castaways are some of the most vivid, beautiful, powerful people you will ever meet in person in your life. One of us might not be the most beautiful person, but they might have an absolutely magnetic (Cerie, Taj, Stephen etc) or outrageous (Russell, Philip, NaOnka etc) personality. Some are just beautiful, some are brilliant, and some are just physical specimens. So trust me, compared to what you see walking around the mall on a typical Saturday, these 50 folks stick out like a sore thumb at the hotel.
So, I have been called form my room to report to a briefing at one of the smaller meeting rooms. This is the first time I have been allowed out of said room since check in, so I am insanely excited with the anticipation of the unknown experience I am about to have. I get off the elevator and come face to face with this little pixie clad in a sundress and high-heeled espadrilles. She is giving me a 1000 watt smile and I can tell that she is insanely excited. I put my finger to my lips to keep her from talking to me, because she looks like she is going to launch into a tirade of glee, and we make our way to the room where about 1/3 of us have gathered for our initial briefing about what to expect for the week. I had a hard time pigeon-holing her, because she looks so darn young I had no idea how old she was. I thought she was around my age, but it would not have surprised me if she told me she was 23 either. Yve was in my ‘group’ that took meals and had our hour of pool time together. Of interesting note, so was Marty. It makes you wonder if alliances are subconsciously formed during Finals week all the time, as you probably gravitate towards people you feel like you’ve known the longest, even if you never speak.
Anyways, we ended up making it on the show and I was really disappointed that they chose not to show the Yve/Jill/Marty alliance which occurred immediately after the mass HII dash the first 10 minutes of the game. We had been divided into the Espada/LaFlor groups and were heading out to our respective camps. Yve, Marty and I were in an Epsada sub-group standing on the beach and we all looked at each other and said “Us three, right?” “You good?” “I’m good” and it was a done deal. I’m not sure why CBS ignored it completely, I can only guess that since Yve and I were pre-jury boots and the swap ruined the alliance anyways, it didn’t play into the story line, so I guess there was no point in bringing it up. That aside, I’m not sure why Yve got her invisible edit. I think the producers are trending to try to penalize the UTR players by giving them the invisible edit. Yve was pretty hurt by it.
So then the pre-jury boots got shipped to Costa Rica. Yve had an especially rough time. I know she was missing her girls and she got really really sick the last three days there, with a high fever to 102, with a wicked cough. I was pretty sure she had pneumonia. She wouldn’t let us take her to a hospital, because she thought that if she was that sick, they wouldn’t let her back into the US. I think Costa Rica was rough for her, thought she did speak a modicum of Spanish from her father being Venezuelan, and I think that was fun for her.
So in summary, Yve is a very attractive, sexy, neat person. Anyone who is a fan I think has their fandom well placed. It looks like she is staying active with a new job as an auctioneer, and attending a few Survivor events here and there. She looks every good in person as she does in pictures, one of which I have included below from our last day at Ponderosa. Yve features prominently. Enjoy.

Since this thread is basically one big Jill write up, my slot is going to be allotted to something special I have planned. I visual extravaganza of hugely fan-tard proportions. Here's a hint: to those of you who are already my facebook friends, it will be old hat.You put up with this for a week?!Uh, you remember my cast right? If I could put up with them in various stages for 7 weeks, I can put up with anything. I figure I can eat now and pass shards of glass at this point in my sufferfest of a life. PGY--ha funny you bring this up. During that write up I was thinking "PGY met me and probably thought I was completely average and boring in person. He's going to call me out and say what a load of crap that was." But I still think it's true, in a room full of 100 people, 1 or 2 will stand out--because of their great beauty or even supreme assholiness, but those standouts are your survivor contestants. Did anything about being on the show surprise you from your experiences as a viewer? First off, let me say how flattered I am to be sported in your personal avatar. I think you and Polonoium are the only two sucksters ever to do so. That picture of Marty and I is one of my all time favorites. Anyways, where to start? There was almost nothing in reality that compares with TV. People are edited differently, whole situations, heck, even challenges are skewed in presentation to suit CBS's agenda. Then, there is a whole universe of production issues that I remain contractually bound not to discuss for like 10 years or until EPMB dies, whichever comes first. But in all seriousness, I guess that biggest mis-conception I get from fans is the degree of suffering. I am constantly being asked things like "So where to they hide the porta-potties?" and "They really feed you don't they?" and in cases where they do actually show the suffering, like when it rains through your shelter all night and you're freezing, well it just doesn't translate through the TV well. I mean they might show 30 seconds of misery, but as a viewer it's hard to appreciate the 24 solid hours of cold, wet, fatigue that go into the 30 second spot.

Haha, I forgot about that photo, but thanks ST. I actually liked that creepy eyeball you used to have. Here's a neat follow up story to the photo: You all know the story by now about how I didn't apply for the S21-22 season--that they pulled my application from a prior year. Well, they wanted updated photos, but since the time of my last application, I had cut all of my long blonde hair off and dyed it platinum blonde. They hated that, so I became a redhead. That is the exact photo that I submitted to CBS for S21. Can you guess what is in the background?
