The 115 Funniest Things to Ever Happen on Survivor
#67. Jon's like a girl
Pearl Islands - Episode 12
This moment is a personal favorite, and is yet another example of Jon being slammed by a woman. In fact, if my wife had her way, this would probably be in the top 10 moments on the entire countdown. She could not have found this quote any funnier.
It's the second-to-last episode of Pearl Islands, and Sandra is trying to organize a takeover. There are five players left in the game (3 women, 2 men) and if Sandra has her way, the women are going to take Burton out tonight and square off against Jon in the final four.
But the question then comes up. Why would Sandra want to take out Burton tonight, when Jon is far and away the better player? Why leave Jon around when he can wreak more havoc? Is he that much weaker than alpha male Burton? I mean, isn't Jon just as likely to win immunity over three women?
Well, in short, the answer is no. Jon is not an immunity threat, and he never will be. Even though he's a male, Sandra isn't the least bit frightened of him. Any why would that be? Well, Sandra tells us her rationale for keeping Jon in one of her most blunt (yet funniest) quotes of the game. It comes during a conversation with Darrah.
"And then it's just us and Jon. And I figure it's still even then, you know, 'cause Jon's like a girl."
Ha ha ha. Sorry, this quote just always makes me laugh. It is absolutely one of Sandra's best quotes of the entire season and, like I said, if Diana had her way she would probably rank this in the top ten. She could not have been more tickled when Sandra called Jon a girl.
Burton and the four women. Not that Sandra wasn't actually that far off. Which player has the skinniest legs and arms? Hint: he's like a girl.
