Pirate Master Media Mentions!
« on: June 01, 2007, 11:45:08 AM »
Cameron Daddo (yum!) was on The Early Show  yesterday.


He did say that each week they divide the crew into two random teams to compete for the treasure.

Does that mean that the winning team gets to choose a new Captain every week? Or are we stuck with JD till the bound-to-happen Mutiny? Stay tuned to see....

Think of the avatar possibilities!

Oooh, Michael! Can you make  us a BQ pirate ? ;D

Hmmmm....wonder what Oswald would look like??  Or PHIL?!

Well you can make them but I don't see how to share them?!

OH my...

Phil's animated head saying "Welcome to Singapore" is perfectly nice....

But of course I have it set to say "Will you marry me?"! over and over and over again.... :luvu:

Don't know how to share the talking head though--can't find an address anywhere  :'(

Intouch Interview with Pirate John

Quote
NICE TRY TO SAVE YOURSELF AT PIRATES' COURT. WHY DIDN'T IT WORK?
John: I'm a goofy dancing fool. I tried to leverage a lot of my success in terms of convincing people to mutiny, and it wasn't shown. At pirates court, a lot was explained to us that we didn't already know, and it changed the game dramatically, but I had already stolen the compasses. That wasn't enough. I kept them after I got on the raft, so those compasses did leave the game. I got on that raft and I was a little bit bitter, but then I had to laugh at myself, it was funny, to see their jaws drop, it was an absurd situation. You know I always knew I was gonna either go first or win the whole thing. I wasn't surprised.


Possibly that the winning team each week chooses a new Captain?

Buddy TV  Interview with John

But the main thing that I was expecting was a lot of hard work and just general difficulty with getting the ship going. And I expected just tremendous challenges physically in the expedition and all kinds of things like that. So, you know, my preparation was more like sort of physical, you know. Taking my fitness from a 9.5 to a 9.9 and you know in terms of just being to run fast.  So, it didnít really make a tremendous amount of difference in that regard and so the things that I was expecting were like, okay, the ship needs to get somewhere so we have navigational skills, survival skills on the ocean. You know, all kinds of general competencies that would be required on a pirate ship, you know, sailing and all kinds of things. It turned out we kind of had a ghost crew in production that was actually getting us there and youíre reallyÖthe basic idea was that the show must go on, so we didnít need that kind of an element. We didnít have that much of a particular challenge in terms of like, if the food was going to be there, it was going to get delivered. There was nothing we could do about that, necessarily. You know, there was very little we could do to ameliorate our situation in terms of how much we ate and whether we found the treasure or not because, you know, like I said, the show must go on, the treasure will be found. And the boat will get to the point where the treasure is and it will run smoothly and that was kind of the way it works.

The thing that really struck me about myself in terms of what they were showing from a personal perspective was the overbearing arrogance and IÖyou know, when I went out on the thing, I knew that was going to happen because I had as much fun as I could with it. You know, how many chances do you get to go out and be a wild, completely zany, off-the-wall pirate that is not only, you knowÖheís not only a little bit eccentric but also arrogant and every little bit of psychology that you donít really get to express in your everyday life in a cubicle job and you know, locked up in a science laboratory with people that donít want to see anything more than just nose to the grind stone. Thatís when I came out and showed and it was just fun, I had fun with it and I hope that people understand that instead of saying, ďThis guy is an arrogant asshole.Ē And I hopeÖI donít know if you could air that butÖ

Interesting interview Georgia Peach, it humanizes him. It does destroy the myth though of a pirate crew on their own battling the elements, fishing for their food, or starving like Survivor. Meals delivered and a ghost crew to make them comfy!  :lol3:

Another interview with John

RC: Do you think that Joe Donís days are numbered as captain?

John: At that point on the show, I saw a mentality developing where people had accepted their role as subservient to this guy. As a viewer, I think itís difficult to understand that itís more than just people thinking logically about the game. When youíre really in the situation & you live it, this guy isnít just some reality contestant who gets nominated as captain. He IS the captain. I donít think things are going to change anytime soon.

In my opinion JD I think JD won't be Captain long in truth I dont' think anybody who is captain will be it for long. Not will all the strong personalities who want to lead. Eventually someone will over throw him.
My own Pirate Masters is coming this summer only on Youtube.

Personally I thought when John took the compasses, he showed that he was unscrupulous. (Well that isn't a bad trait for a pirate master I suppose.) However it blew the other's minds and I think that is why the kicked off the ship. I don't know about the dominate/subservient mind set.  :pirates1

The whole dominant thing comes mostly from the Stanford Prison Experiment : a psychology experiment from the 70's which put students in the role of either prisoners or guards--and within 2 days the students nearly completely bought into their assigned roles, either becoming a subservient prisoner or, in some cases, a power wielding  abusive guard. There is a lot of speculation that JD has bought waaay too much into the "power" trip role of the Captain, a la the Stanford Prison Experiment.

But the whole fun of this IS going to see the pirates really "play" into this, as John alluded to in that interview. Now I'm kind of sorry that he went so early because he probably would have been great fun to watch and see what he stirred up. This is different from TAR or from Survivor in that they DO have to act with their role as well as use their inter-personal skills to get along--so thus may get even more interesting as the weeks go by!

I like the image of whoever said this is much more like Big Brother house done in Pirate costumes/roles than like TAR or Survivor.

Now that you mention it, I did read about Stanford prison experiment  and it was frightening to me because of the way it impacted the participants. Taken in this light, it will be interesting to see if they keep JD. (Will the producers like that?) :kogsey

If you want to skip some of his jibber-jabber about everything besides the show, go here to read his thoughts on Pirate Master only:

It even has a picture of John he made with watercolors.  Very nice artwork, for a watercolor painting.

Especially since he drew it with his "other" hand! :o

Schedule Change

'BIG BROTHER' TO RETURN TO USUAL NIGHTS, 'PIRATE MASTER' TO WALK TUESDAY PLANK
By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- CBS has confirmed its rollout schedule for "Big Brother" while newcomer "Pirate Master" is being sent to Tuesday nights.

"Brother" will launch its eighth season on Thursday, July 5 at 8:00/7:00c with its Sunday and Tuesday editions due on July 8 at 8:00/7:00c and July 10 at 9:00/8:00c, respectively.

Said installments mirror its broadcast schedule from last summer, save for Tuesday nights where it aired at 8:00/7:00c instead of 9:00/8:00c.

As for "Pirate Master," the show's sixth episode will follow "Big Brother" at 9:00/8:00c on July 5 before it settles into its new Tuesday, 10:00/9:00c home on July 10.


Goes along with the reported  drop in ratings, I guess. But first BB, then Pirates? That's a lot of cheese! :lol:

Another Christian Interview

Quote
RNO: How much training did you all receive in the running of a ship?

Christian: We received extensive training. We had a [trainer] who showed us how to do the rigging and all that.

Quote
Christian: I didnít have any game strategy. As you know, right at the beginning, I got voted off pretty quickly. Towards the end, the game got a little tighter and more real. In the beginning , there wasnít much of any game to play

ďYeah, I Had a Bad AttitudeĒ Ė An Interview with Pirate Masterís Alexis
by David Bloomberg -- 06/18/2007

 
Watching the latest episode of Pirate Master, it seems Alexis thought people didnít like her because of her personality, but statements of her fellow contestants on the show indicated they wanted her gone because of her expedition weakness and work ethic. Which was it? Or was it a combination? How did Alexis play the game? And what does she claim was her reason for wandering away from the boat during the expedition? Read on for answers to all these questions and more!

As youíll see in this interview, Alexis readily admits that she spoke her mind Ė a frequent no-no on reality TV shows. But she also says she has a good reason for why we saw her apparently wandering away from her boat during the expedition. Whether it makes sense in light of what her fellow contestants said is up to you to decide. Read on!

RNO: Going into the show, what did you expect?

Alexis: I didnít really have any expectations. I was never a big reality Ė I hadnít really watched Survivor or any of that. I tried to watch some of those before leaving. You really donít know what youíre getting into and are given very little information. So I went in with whatever happens, happens.

RNO: So you didnít have any sort of strategy going in?

Alexis: I really didnít.

RNO: Once you were there, did you develop a game strategy?

Alexis: Not necessarily. I kind of just went in and saw how other people were playing it. It wasnít in evidence immediately [that others had strategies], but a lot of people were really politically correct in the beginning. They were trying to protect themselves.

I was brutally honest and blatant. I got better feedback for that than I could have predicted. They didnít show it, but in a lot of Piratesí Court, it was a lot more intense and I was usually running my mouth. A lot of people were playing it safe in the beginning because they didnít want to be the sh*t talker. At the end of the day, my relationships with the people in the boat were more legitimate because of that.

RNO: Watching the show, and from what you just said, it seemed like you believed you were being targeted for your personality. Did it surprise you that you were being targeted at least as much for your work ethic or physical ability?

Alexis: Yes and no. When there were volunteers to clean the head, Iíd be getting some sun. I wasnít an eager beaver. I had kind of attacked Kendra the week before. How [the show is] cut, thereís a lot missing Ė thatís TV. But more of what I was speaking of was they had the opportunity to have at it with me, and I was surprised they didnít speak up.

I sucked wind in the last expedition. On the expeditions, we were told youíre only as strong as your slowest player, and thatís the truth. But people pulled the dead weight. We all had our strengths, mine was certainly in the water and not on land.

RNO: How do you think you fit in with the rest of the contestants?

Alexis: I thought I was cast to be the bitch, which is probably how I come across. But I actually got along with everyone well. I was a straight-talker. Cheryl ended up becoming the bitch more than I was. I got along with everyone and made better friends. There were people who were more impressionable and played it a little more like, ďWhat do I do?Ē I was just like, ďIt is what it is, get over it.Ē

RNO: If Cheryl became the bitch, why do you think you were sent packing?

Alexis: I think I was sent packing a because of my attitude. Yeah, I had a bad attitude.Itís hard. Thatís just me, not just me on the ship. I just think people were cheerleaders, ďRah, rah, rah, letís clean the head,Ē where I was like, ďIím dying, Iím going to take a nap.Ē And I had called some people out. I called out Kendra and we didnít speak for a week on the boat.

RNO: Were you surprised that Joe Don wasnít marked with a black spot?

Alexis: Yes and no. I wasnít surprised because they put Cheryl up. What you donít see really is that Joe Don was up there being all high and mighty, but a lot of the things he was saying, we donít know. We didnít hear any of those remarks [until they aired on TV]. Cheryl was the middle man between the crew and captain, she was much colder and entitled and pretty arrogant. I wasnít surprised Cheryl went up. Like Louie said, if I canít get the snakeís head, Iím going to get the snakeís tail. That was so the case.

RNO: How would you compare the captaincies of Joe Don and Azmyth?

Alexis: I think Joe Don went in and tried to fill a mold he thought a captain would fill and maintain the separation. Like Jay said too, Azmyth is such an airy fairy, earth daddy, one with the planet, one love, anarchy [kind of guy]. He definitely played it in a way that made the crew happy because he was human about it and shared the food and his winnings and let people come in his cabin. He was definitely the peopleís captain, vs. Joe Don, who was just a jerk.

RNO: Why did you seem to wander away from the boat at the sandbar?

Alexis: This is so funny. Again: TV. When we got to the sandbar, we had to lift the boat up over it. What you canít tell is how hard the river is rushing into the ocean. Cheryl and I were literally getting our asses kicked trying to get through. It came to the point where I was going to have cardiac arrest or I [could go to] the right to not run against the current. So I ran over to that bank so I could catch up and get ahead of the boat, so I could get back on it and not affect the team.

Cheryl and I had already fallen off not carrying the boat. I ran up the side because there wasnít going to be any resistance from the water. It looked like I was on a walk picking flowers, but that wasnít the case.

Once I was able to get on the bank, I could get back in the boat and not lose any time. I certainly didnít hold them up. But you know, you gotta make good TV and make it look like I was lollygagging and having a field day. I explained that to Joe Don in Piratesí Court, but [they didnít air that either].

RNO: Do you have anything else you want to tell us about your time on Pirate Master?

Alexis: Overall, for me, the show was the smallest part. You really look at the group of kids who was brought together Ė Chippendale dancers and smoke jumpers and reality star wannabes. Such an odd mix, to be on such a remote beautiful island, the entire thing was priceless. It was like going to summer camp and being put in a cabin with a bunch of kids you want to throw apples at. But overall it was great.

RNO: Thanks, Alexis!
