Survivor Palau’s Bobby Jon is a man.
Survivor Palau‘s Bobby Jon Drinkard–what a great last name–apparently wants us to be aware of his genitalia and what it indicates about his personality. In an interview with TV Guide, he reminds us of his sex four times, and of his masculinity and manliness repeatedly. Examples:

  • I win like a man, I lose like a man; that’s just the way it is.
  • You know what? I’m a man. You turn me loose in the woods and I’m going to act like a man acts.
  • He [Ibrehem] doesn’t wear his feelings on his sleeve and I don’t, either.
  • I lost a physical challenge, and being physical is something I had always prided myself on, and I lost to somebody who is a few years older than me.
