Hey raver!

I’m surprised you haven’t already posted the following for all the lascivious ladies who lurk on this site:

Though he’s probably gay?
But at least his collar and cuffs match.

Of much greater excitement (well to me at least) –

Woo hoo. Truck-a-saurus.
Hopefully, they’ll have to drive a Russian tank or such so we can see Rob French’s professional monster truck driving skills in action.

I really, really shouldn’t get excited that Amazing Race or Survivor are coming back on tele here, because as soon as they get me hooked both Nine and Seven will start changing the nights its on, or bash together overlong double episodes and then finally relegate the last few episodes to 1.00am in the morning.

Culinary Boner: I don’t have a problem if James Davis is gay!

4 Georgie { 09.26.12 at 8:12 am }

Of course you don’t Jason, neither does Culinary Boner, he was just concerned he might get the girls salivating for no good reason.

Just for the record CB, I don’t find him/his pose appealing – he looks like a trained monkey without a lead.

You gotta give credit to Seven, over the seasons they have treated the US version with more respect than Nine has with Survivor by at least attempting to fast track it. I usually watch each episode twice at minimum anyway (same with survivor) so happy to watch it online, then again when FTA decides to schedule it.

6 Culinary Boner { 09.26.12 at 8:59 am }

Georgie, given the trained monkey look, does he have an *ahem* organ grinder hidden somewhere?

Jason, I’m actually hoping he is gay. Mrs Boner can’t resist perving at six-packs.
