How TV Shows Can Provide Inspiration

By: Gary Mitchell

Ever since the beginning of Survivor and reality TV, the show contestants have often remarked about how being on the show was a once in a lifetime experience and how they have grown from being a part of it. However in the last season of Survivor millions of Americans got a much deeper insight into what that really meant.

One of the most popular contestants was Cirie Fields a registered nurse from Walterboro South Carolina. Cirie didn’t have much experience with outdoor life, a fact that became extremely obvious in the first episode. In that first episode Cirie narrowly managed to avoid getting voted out. Immediately afterwards she made the following comment to the audience "All of you who are sitting on the couch at home watching this, stay on the couch!".

Over the course of the season Cirie continued to avoid being voted off the island on a few occasions. Her straightforward style and attitude made her very likeable an instant fan favorite. Over the weeks she grew accustomed to the outdoor Survivor lifestyle, and reached a milestone in episode 11. In that episode Cirie caught a fish large enough to feed the entire tribe. Her personal growth was not lost on her tribe mates who celebrated the moment with her. Cirie didn’t make it to final episode, however in her exit interview she realized how far she has come in so short a time. In the season finale Cirie remarked that if she can do it anyone can do it, and everyone should get up off the couch.
