Parkour on Survivor
 
Before the first physical challenge last night one of the contestants, "Frosti" who is billed as the student athlete and the youngest contestant ever to play the game, mentioned Parkour and Free Running. He went on to give a brief explanation and state that because of this he would be a physical threat in the game.

Jesse and Mark get ready for those phone calls.

LOL, I was set for him to dominate but I think the grave digger beat him. I think this reflects more on the diet/conditions he is currently under than anything else. See how the show progresses - kinda wonder how much your performance is effected by the fuel you take in. Is someone who eats clean and well going to be more negatively affected under these conditions then someone who doesn't. Hmmm

Interesting thought. I have always wondered about survival scenarios and what is the best? If you are at 6% body fat, then you are going to have a hard time with energy levels if you don't have enough food to eat. But then again, you also might have a better chance of performing well under those conditions.

I haven't watched since the first season (IMHO the only good season since the concept and game playing was new and nobody knew what to expect), but I was convinced then that the fattest guy would win. And he did!

Not really... Frosti forgot about the first gate had to go back up and open it and still ended up overall passing the guy in the end. If he didn't forget that gate his team probably would've had a shot at winning. He overall has a physically weak team it looks like though.
