I'm thinking George is a total douchebag. I can tolerate ass holes who are hard workers, I can love ass holes who are harder workers and have skills. But if your an ass hole and lazy, Ill kick your sorry but out. Mike from last season, was an ass hole but worked hard and showed he had valuble skills, despite his early attitude the other colonists knew they needed him, and the viewing audience respected him. George is lazy and thinks he is better than everyone. If I was there I would show George who was the alpha male real quick. The only reason why they lost those batteries was because George was to lazy to carry even one of them.
They made another mistake by not skinning and eatting the snake they killed. End of the world, you have to take advantage of every resource you get.
Overall I think this season is less personal and more distant observation based than the last season. Not sure I like the setup, but we will see how it goes.
