S25: Lisa Welchel (Tandang)
« on: August 21, 2012, 12:02:40 AM »
 
Lisa

 Lisa     

Name (Age): Lisa Whelchel (49)
Tribe Designation: Tandang
Current Residence: Dallas, Texas   
Occupation: Former TV Teen Star (“The Facts of Life”) 
Personal Claim to Fame: My three delightful and interesting children and the close friendship we enjoy.
Inspiration in Life: I admire and respect Oprah. She has used her fame and fortune to help people.
Hobbies: Reading, scrapbooking and traveling.
Pet Peeves: People who judge other people.
3 Words to Describe You: Quick-witted, sharp-minded and brave-hearted.
If You Could Have 3 Things on The Island What Would They Be and Why?
1) A Bible with giant print because I don’t know if I would have my reading glasses.
2) A journal and a pen because I have a terrible memory and I don’t want to forget a minute of this experience.
3) Playing cards because I love to play games.
SURVIVOR Contestant You Are Most Like: Colby – I’m competitive, genuine and from Texas!
Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: I LOVE the game and was born to play it. Plus, I want to meet Jeff Probst.
Why You Think You’ll “Survive” SURVIVOR: I am strong physically, intellectually and in will.
Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: My inherent make up is to assess the big picture goal, determine the steps to reach it, gain everything there is to learn about how to accomplish the goal, jump in with both feet, connect with other people’s strengths and never give up until the job is done.

Would have never recognized her from that picture, but as soon as I heard her speak, I knew it was her.

Na, I think she'll pull a Holly/Dawn. You know, where you break down in episode, missing your kids. And then you become a beast, and form an alliance and get to final 7-ish.

she seemed the obvious early elimination at first, bullied by her own tribe who excluded her, post-merge though, she turned into one heck of a power player. Lisa needs to be on the next all stars.
Bring on the 21!

If she makes the Final 3, I think she has a really good chance of winning.

She is absolutely amazing! One of my favourites, along with Abi! :hearts: :hearts: :hearts: :hearts: :hearts: :hearts: :hearts: :hearts: :hearts: :hearts:

 :lol: :hrt: :hoot:

If she makes the Final 3, I think she will be unstoppable. She'd probably win in a close to unanimous vote if she is sitting next to people like Abi/Pete/Artis. I think she could easily beat Penner or Skupin or Carter as well. The only people who could potentially beat her in a Final Tribal situation are the Matsing duo. Just speculating, but if she can somehow squeeze into the Final Three, she'd have a really great chance! :hoot: :hoot:

Ep11 and Ep12 made me dislike her. She's so fake. Her emotions are not genuine. :cmas13

I think in a game of Survivor, you cannot be wishy washy. My respect for Lisa has dropped (although she's made the game exciting by being a trainwreck) but you can't deny she's trying her best to play and win.

I think she has almost as little chance as Sugar in winning this game after all the emotions and everything that she has shown.

If she wins, then I think we are probably looking at the most gracious jury ever.

:D I'M GLAD SOMEONE FELT THAT WAY TOO. <3

I wrote a very long blog entry about why I really like Lisa... sharing some parts here.

Quote
While watching the show, I always felt that Lisa was too emotional, playing the game with too much heart over mind and logic. Often, she was caught in the dilemma of voting for people whom she like and has a close relationship with... but whom she knows she won't win a million against them. She was playing this game with so much heart, so that at times it was hard to watch her play because sometimes the things that she says doesn't make sense. But watching Lisa on TV was like watching me behave in real life.

Many a times, I choose to do the right things so as to please people and not to offend anyone. But many a times, I ended up being miserable as the decision, although is what will please God and makes him happy, is not one that pleases me and makes me happy. Sometimes, we just wish to go astray and be the evil one. Sometimes, we just want to shut God out of the equation and go our own way. Let me give you an example; let's say if somebody is in your group project and leeched off you, would you follow God's words and just let it be, or would you be angry and tell the person off sternly? Of course, I'm not saying we go to the extreme of cursing and swearing, but I think you get my point.

Lisa made me realized the similarities in the struggles we face (or rather, I face) in today's world. I'm using "we face" because I generally believe that most people want to do good but at times we just cannot find a reason to do it. And considering she won the fan favourite award, many people must have agreed or felt the same way as her, like I do. She had a divorce with her husband few months prior to playing Survivor and was at the rock bottom of her life and wanted to seek a different kind of motivation/meditation. Nobody knew about her sad stories, her current life during the 39 days on the Survivor Island. She kept all quiet about it because she felt that she needed no one to know about her problems. That sounds like me actually.

On her Survivor experience, Lisa sums it up really nicely; about struggling with Christianity and at the same time wanting to play the game to win the million.

"Nothing about ‘Survivor’ is the kind of thing that reflects, you know, the character of God, so it was a total internal struggle until I realized... It’s OK to be human, and it’s OK to be sometimes good and sometimes bad... that’s actually what Christianity is all about. It's acceptance."

Was rooting for Lisa also, but I disagree that Denise was a better player - she did nothing strategically, she was just good at challenges and benefited from Penner's unbelievably stupid idea of not accepting a Final Three deal.

I never liked her, she was too wishy-washy. I would've rather had Penner, Carter and Kent in the F5 than Lisa, Skupin, and Abi
