Interview with 'Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains' Courtney Yates

Of everyone coming back for Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains, Courtney is the one I'm excited to see a second time.

Courtney always reminds me of a particular 1968 presidential candidate. Fed up with big party politicians Richard Nixon and Hubert Humphrey, a group of sarcastic political junkies with too much time on their hands promoted a candidate they thought could do a better job. A pig named Pigasus.

Much like Pigasus, Courtney's plea to the Survivor: China jury was that she was a madcap alternative to the bigger players in the game. "If you don't like The Snake or The Rat, vote for me. I'm a screw-up, but at least I don't act like I did anything important here."

While other All Stars have moved to LA, taken up acting, and seemingly been ruined by the world, Courtney still has the same waitress job now that she did before China. What's better, she doesn't seem to take herself any more seriously. She's just gotten even funnier.

Not surprisingly, she was one of the funnest people to talk with. Even when she gives drab answers it's with such eye rolling irony that you realize it was the question that was drab. She's just answering it.
