DOH!

One of my favorite moments from the first season of Survivor was watching the remaining players perform a challenge that was very ala Blair Witch Project. They were told a story of island lore, and then had to take a movie camera, find questions in the jungle, read the question, look into the camera and answer.

Rudy (bless his 70-year old Navy Seal heart) ran around, read the questions, looked into the camera and said, "I dunno" every single time. He simply couldn't be bothered.
"What will the spirits do when they hear the conch shell?

(Pause.)............................................................ I dunno."

-- Rudy, reading and answering one of the jungle superstition questions, after being briefed on the correct answer moments earlier.

"What is the event that has foreshadowed the departure of most of the survivors from tribal council?
(Pause.)............................................................ I dunno."

-- Another Rudy question.

"If the spirits cause you to get lost in the jungle, what two things should you do?
(Pause.)........................................................... I dunno."

-- Rudy, who we now suspect may have a steel plate in his skull.

It was classic Rudy and it was hysterical.

Now, perhaps in what can only be considered the most colossal blunder in Survivor history, Richard Hatch (Sole Survivor and Million Dollar winner of Season One) managed NOT to report any of his Survivor winnings to the IRS.

Perhaps when the judge asks him why he didn't report the earnings that MILLIONS of people saw him win, he might take a page from the Rudy handbook, look in the camera and say, "I dunno."

Aww, I miss Rudy. The new cast looks so boring.

I remember when Tina won S2, Richard's advice to her on The Early Show was to 'set aside the tax money'. Hee.
