Survivor: Invasive Ants

from an interview with Survivor contestant Kelly Sharbaugh:

When your name showed up, you looked flabbergasted, shocked, dumbfounded.

All of the above. I had no idea that Russell had the idol. When [host Jeff Probst] said my name, I was like. “What just happened? What did I do?” I was so emotional because I was so unprepared. I didn’t even wear my favorite boots to tribal because the thought that I could go never crossed my mind.

Did you ever get them back?

No, fire ants nested in them so I left them in Samoa and after the tsunami I’m pretty sure they got washed away.

Good for Kelly, I say, for helping stop the spread of pest ants.  When contestants are voted off the island, how many do you suppose check their luggage for invasive species?

    Yes Kelly, let’s just pray for tsunamis to wash all those bad ants away…..leave your boots anywhere, anytime. There’s bound to be a natural disaster soon.
