Funny 115 - version 2.0
James drops a Muntz on them
Heroes vs Villains - Episode 6
When most people think of James Clement, they think of this
They think of a big tall badass scary looking
could probably pop your head off like his grandma once did to a chicken.
Currently banned from GiGi Restaurant and Lounge in
Yes James is definitely one scary badass looking dude.
But what most people don't
think of when they think of James is the fact that, despite the fact
that he could probably kill you with his bare hands, James is easily
one of the most underrated funny characters in Survivor history.
In fact I might even argue that he is the most
underrated funny character in Survivor history. I would
that-- other than the douchy heel turn he took towards Colby
Stephenie in Heroes vs Villains-- practically 50% of the
that come out of his mouth over the years have made me laugh.
Especially when you are talking about James the first time
The James moment (the first of many, I should point
out) I have selected for #111 on the Funny 115 takes place in Heroes vs
Villains. Yes, I know, not a season that has historically
viewed as James' finest moment. But there is one James scene
vs V I have always had a soft spot for, and am proud to finally
memorialize on a countdown.
At the end of Heroes vs Villains
episode 6, there is a double Tribal Council. The
first (they vote out Tyson), and then the Heroes come in and they have
their own Tribal Council.
Oh yeah, and they have to have Tribal Council while
the Villains are sitting there eating hot dogs about 20 feet

as you can guess, James isn't particularly happy about this scenario.
He doesn't like watching the Villains eat food while he is
starving and injured and miserable. He really doesn't like
most of the Villains are just sitting there, mocking him. In
for most of Tribal Council James can't even look over at them.

Be the wiener, Stephen. Be the wiener.
Oh my Goddddd, it's sooooooo gooooooood.

scene is funny enough on its own (it's actually the same scene as
"Banana Etiquette", which will show up later on the countdown), but the
moment that makes the Funny 115 at #111 comes at the end of the scene
when Jeff Probst tells the Villains that the picnic is over and they
have to stop eating their hot dogs.
Courtney's crestfallen face when she realizes they get no more food.
thing that kills me about this scene is that the minute Jeff tells the
Villains that the picnic is over, out of nowhere James unleashes the
perfect little mocking Nelson Muntz (from The Simpsons) "ha ha!"
there is no warning it is coming at all. All of a sudden
just drops a Muntz on them. Kills me every single time I see
It just comes out of nowhere.
not sure what I love the most about this scene. The fact that
James drops a Muntz on the Villains, or the fact that James even knows
who Nelson Muntz is. I mean, good lord, the guy is a badass
digger from Louisiana who looks like he spends every single day of his
life in a gym. When does he time to watch the Simpsons??
And would you even peg the guy as a Simpsons fan??
has got to be one of the single most unexplainable moments in Survivor
history. Right up there with the question, "Why does Amanda
such dead eyes all the time?" I mean, my God, look at those
screen caps above. In every single one of them Amanda is in
Even Jeff Probst enjoyed the Muntz
Jerri enjoyed it too. Check out her reaction to having a
Muntz dropped on her.
anyway, thank you James Clement for always be entertaining, and for
always finding some way to surprise me with your sly sense of humor.
You are a worthy addition to the Funny 115, and this will be
from your only moment on the countdown.
At some point maybe I will even see you at Simpsons-Con.
