Bankston is the third Survivor contestant to pass away since the show premiered.

Rudy's still alive and kicking at age 86.

/stopped watching after season 2

Walker: Rudy's still alive and kicking at age 86


he's going to out live most of those pansies.  The only reason he lost that last challenge was because he got bored of listening to Jeff's droning.

Bummer. He seemed to be very level headed...the exact opposite of Colton.
 
2014-06-25 04:55:11 PM  
Submitted this with the same damn joke dammit.

9th place also-ran dies in accident more interesting than Survivor.

Too bad it wasn't Colton...
And too bad it wasn't Colton getting RUN OVER by a train.
That would have been justifiably nifty!

Lol, I think I'm the only one on Earth that even knew Probst had a late night talk show last year. It was as bad as you'd expect.

All of us at Fark are crushed, simply crushed. Not as crushed as him, but crushed.
 
2014-06-25 05:15:57 PM  
His boyfriend was/is a world class shiathead, but this guy conducted himself with class and it seemed like everyone liked him.  It's a shame.

Came here to say this. Actually HOPED OUT LOUD it was that prick when I read the headline.

Guess this guy didn't understand most people think reality tv is a train wreck, they don't literally mean that.

Agreed, wholeheartedly.

Can't figure out why someone like him would be with Colton, but seems like that's not a problem anymore.

.I remember hearing the premise of Survivor when it first was greenlit: A bunch of people live on an island for as long as possible with no food until only one remains to claim a million dollar prize.

I thought to myself "This is going to be the best show ever."

But then, before it aired, I heard that actually they get food and play games and get voted off. Bullshiat. Never watched an episode. Never will.

I wonder if they'll ever make the good version.

No, I came here to give aspiring filmakers the seed to produce ACTUAL compelling television.

Hollywood and TV are too incestuous. They share the same executives and will always wind up ruining anything that isn't independently produced. So anything that's going to be good is going to be filmed by someone FIRST and sold as is to be aired.

He didn't.  He had a syndicated daytime talk show.

Your well-informed opinion of a show you've never seen is not convincing. Survivor was (is) a really interesting show. And I'm sure aspiring film-makers are silently stalking the TV thread on Fark to glean what they really should be doing.

Apparently, the Train Challenge was too much for him.  Darn, had he succeeded, he would have received immunity.

//too soon?

I didnt watch that season but based on what ive read here the dead guy was top notch and his boyfriend is a complete dickhead so what was the dead guy doing with him?

I don't remember a late night show , but he did have one on in the late afternoon .

Ask the majority of hot women out there.  People are attracted to assholes.

Caleb seemed like a great guy. With Colton, some men like the twink, drama queen thing. In fact a lot of men do.
 
2014-06-25 06:54:05 PM  
I'm amazed that the show's been around this long and only three of the alumni are dead. This guy, Jenn from Palau, and BB from way back at Survivor: Original Recipe. Sonja's still kicking. Rudy's still kicking.

So much this.  We'll never know what he saw in Colton, but I liked Caleb and was hoping to see him back on Survivor.
 
2014-06-25 08:33:17 PM  
I don't really know who he was, but from the photos, I've determined he was a cute little cub. And thus I'm saddened by this loss. He barely had time to get into gay porn.

2014-06-25 08:56:44 PM  
This is why we will never have real train transport here: total shiat implementation.

Why does anyone date someone that's an asshole?  I would imagine that gay people are just as prone to poor judgement as straight people.

Not to mention the fact that scenes are re-shot if they don't 'look right'. Reality show? Fu*k that noise. You want a reality show? Look at your own damn life, FFS.

Minus the voting off - they have that show now:  It's called Naked and Afraid.  And it's surprisingly interesting.

See? Its not just the "Survivor community feeling the shock waves" of this tragic event. The ripple effect has spread, all the way to fark. How will we get through this untimely loss?

Seriously though, that's a sad thing.

Yeah, being naked is the first thing I would insist on whilst being stranded in a remote part of some jungle/desert/island etc.

Incredibly stupid show.

I have a friend who is always the level headed friend who people run to for advice/venting. I think she likes being the problem solver and rock.
