Deleted Survivor scene: more incredible evidence of Colton’s social game failure

In a scene that didn’t make Survivor One World‘s episode this week, the men’s tribe returns from the challenge, and Colton Cumbie makes sure everyone realizes what a terrifically horrible social game he has, including us. At the end of the clip below, he says, “I’m a country club kid. I’ve never done a thing for myself in my life; I’ve always been taken care of, whether by my mom, my nanny, my boyfriend, whoever. These people are my bitches. I don’t want to do anything.”

Of particular interest besides Colton’s terribleness is the fact that Mike knows that Colton has the immunity idol, which probably means everyone knows, which means Colton told everyone, or those he confided in, Jonas and Troyzan, told on him. Either way, it doesn’t seem like Colton’s going to last very long–but that’s also what I always think about people that annoy me and/or have play bad games.
