Funny 115 - version 2.0
Michelle falls off the platform
Fiji - episode 7
It is episode seven of Survivor: Fiji, and today the Motos and the
Ravus are going to be competing in an immunity challenge.
Run around an obstacle course and do stuff
of course this is a challenge we have seen several times on Survivor
before. Heck, we saw it in Survivor: The Australian
in my all time favorite Survivor challenge (episode 6, Nick
the Kuchas past Jerri and Amber).
Kucha steals a win from Ogakor
Oh my Godddd. Soooooo sad.
also saw a memorable version of it in Survivor: All-Stars when Big Tom
blindly took a block to the face, and Rob C. started crying.
you remember that one? If I ever went back and
#116 to the original countdown, that is the scene that would probably
Big Tom is about to meet Jesus personally
Rob C: *wah*
Amber: Oh my Goddddd. Sooooo sad.
anyway, we have a lot of historical precedent when it comes to a "get
blindfolded and do stuff" challenge on Survivor. Sometimes it
turns out awesome and exciting, like Australia. Sometimes it
turns into bassoon music and slapstick, like All-Stars.
Oftentimes it features Amber.
Oh my Goddd. Sooooo hot.
if you are looking for the blindfolded slapstick moment which was one
of the most frequently nominated entries for the Funny 115, well you
have come to the right place.
That's right, it is time to immortalize Michelle falling off the
caller's platform in Fiji.
remember Michelle, right? You know, the cute adorable little
Asian girl who got screwed out of the game by the most ridiculous
pointless bullshit twist in Survivor history. Remember her?
Hi, I'm cute
What, you say you don't remember her?
Hi, I like to pose with my arms up
it doesn't matter. She wasn't a particularly significant
character in Survivor history. I mean, again, other than the
bullshit twist which made no sense, which completely screwed her over
for no reason, and which sort of made a mockery out of Survivor: Fiji.
I mean, other than -that-, and other than the famous falling
the platform scene, there is probably no reason you would ever remember
Well, okay, unless you are into girl on girl kissing with Eliza
without further ado, here we go. The famous "Michelle falls
the platform" slapstick scene from Survivor: Fiji. Like I
this was one of the more popular and requested entries for Funny 115
version 2.0. The only reason I kept it off the original
of the countdown is because it happens so fast in the background, and I
didn't think it would make a very good writeup.
But then I went back and I watched the scene again.
that, combined with the 30,000 people who yelled at
leaving it off the countdown and calling me a douchebag, finally
convinced me to add it back in.
It is episode seven, and the Motos and the Ravus are competing in the
famous "get blindfolded and do stuff" challenge.
Led by Michelle, for the Motos
And Lisi, for the Ravus
The challenge starts, and immediately Michelle and Lisi start yelling
at their teammates in an attempt to get them to do stuff
Lisi in action

one point in the challenge Alex takes over as the Ravu caller, but it
really doesn't matter. Because what happens to Michelle is
thing we are going to look for.
In fact, it is going to happen in about 5... 4... 3... 2... 1...
Michelle instructs Stacy
Michelle gets excited and starts singing and hopping around
Next up is Cassandra. Michelle successfully instructs her.
Michelle continues to hop around and do her little sexy dance
we come to the fifth and last of the Moto stuff-doers. We go
through Earl, we go through Boo. And finally, we come to the
We come to Yau-Man.
And this is where greatness unfolds.
Michelle starts screaming for Yau-Man to walk in the right direction
"Faster! Faster! Faster! Follow that
rail! Follow that rail! Follow that rail!!"
And it is midway through this excited little hop where Michelle
suddenly remembers she is on an elevated platform
And just like that...
Oh my Goddddd. Sooooo sad.
Michelle falls, as 3-D Yau-Man comes right into your living room
I said before, pretty much everyone remembers this scene.
remember it because that fall just comes completely out of nowhere.
You're not expecting it all, and then suddenly Michelle just
disappears off the side of the screen halfway through the challenge.
It's awesome because it happens so quickly.
Um, oops? *giggle*
of course since Michelle is a trooper, there she is, climbing right
back up the ladder. Five seconds later, she is none the worse
wear. She just hops back up on her platform, and she leads
Yau-Man to an immunity victory.
Although presumably, this time, she does it with less hopping.
Oh my Goddd. Soooooo resilient.
