In case you missed the opening episode, 5 of the most desirable men in America were selected in an arduous process to partake in Survivor Flagstaff.  The concept of Survivor Flagstaff is quite simple, 5 guys crammed into a one bedroom apartment, living the oh so glamorous lives of professional runners, until one by one they are voted off the mountain until there is the ultimate Survivor.

After a month plus of anticipation, the 5 guys in Flagstaff, Arizona have announced the first casualty voted off the mountain. And he is no other than Carlos.

The decision apparently was quite easy as the 4 other members of Survivor Flagstaff voted unanimously to give Carlos the boot.  Apparently, Carlos among other things committed the ultimate sin in the male running community of selling his buddies short for a girl.

Now in this case, the girl was his wife, but the 4 remaining members of Survivor Flagstaff had no sympathy for Carlos.

Most of the tribe had been at a track meet where the most hyped runner in America, Mr. Alan Webb, was scheduled to compete. Instead of staying around for the final day to see Alan run, Carlos left the meet to be with his wife.

“It was totally inexcusable.  Alan Webb, the ALAN WEBB,  was going to compete and Carlos couldn’t have cared less. He just took off.  You just don’t do that. This is ALAN WEBB we’re talking about. But it doesn’t really matter, we got to see Alan run. Sure he got beat by a bunch of guys, but this is ALAN WEBB after all. We saw ALAN WEBB, and he didn’t. I even got to see Alan stretching on the ground not 20 feet from me before his race. It was totally incredible” said one unidentified member of the tribe.

Carlos traveled back to Flagstaff to see his wife where one member of the tribe had remained for some extra altitude training. And low and behold, Carlos and his wife, apparently did what a husband and wife often do in a marriage (at least when they are recently married and not the age of a master athlete). The other members of the tribe were horrified upon learning this news.

“It was basically an unwritten rule- no women in the apartment.  That was very clear from our actions.  I mean none of us had spoken to a member of the opposite sex in about a month. Wait, I take that back. I had that thing going with the cute cashier at Walmart. She asked me if I wanted a bag for my items.”- said an unidentified member of the tribe, named Weldon.

So upon learning the news of Carlos’ two mortal sins, the other members of the tribe voted to kick him off the mountain immediately.

“That guy (Carlos) shouldn’t have been here in the first place. He’s married, yet he left his beautiful wife back Phoenix where she has to parade around a college campus, where there are tons of guys with real physiques who walk around shirtless because it’s so hot. He is lucky we voted him off.”

And the biggest shock off all is that Carlos seemed almost glib about being kicked off the Mountain. “Those guys need psychological help. They act like running is the end all be all in life. They live pathetic lives. I was hoping to get kicked off but couldn’t figure out how to do it.”

LetsRun.com running guru, John Kellogg, when reached via satellite hook-up showed the fallacy of Carlos’ thinking. "Nothing matters in life but running. Nothing. What could be more important than how fast someone can run around at track 25 times."

"I mean that guy Carlos is a complete joke. Look what he did after getting off the mountain - he dropped out of the Pittsburgh Marathon. So what does he have to show for this? A great wife/happy marriage? Big deal."

Thankfully, John could restore some sanity to the situation.


Carlos Leaving the Mountain


Pretending to be upset- Carlos

PS Originally scheduled for Episode II was a glimpse of a day in the life of the Flagstaff participants.  However, the producers determined this material would be too boring, so it was pulled.  The producers do highly suggest however watching PTI (Pardon the Interruption), on ESPN 2:30 pm pacific, 5:30 pm eastern, the best show on tv. Viewing of this show is the highlight of the Flagstaff participants day.
