The 115 Funniest Things to Ever Happen on Survivor
Marquesas - Episode 2
This was a really quick comment in Marquesas, but it never fails to make me laugh when I see it. And I'm really surprised that Boston Rob didn't take more heat for this one at the time.
It's day four at camp Maraamu, and the tribe is doing their best to work together as a team. They have been a disaster so far, their leadership is non-existent, and something really needs to be changing around here. Somebody really needs to step up and take the lead.
Patricia "Mom" Jackson
That person, of course, ended up being Patricia. Known affectionately as "Mama," Patricia Jackson ended up taking control around camp Maraamu and started doling out tasks. This tactic eventually got her voted out, but that's not the reason she makes this list.
No, the real reason she makes this list was because of a moment that happened on day four. It was just a quick snippet of conversation, just something that Boston Rob commented on, but it ended up being one of the most unbelievably rude things I have ever heard someone say in my life. And like I said, I can't believe Rob didn't get in trouble for what actually came out of his mouth.
Hunter putting lotion on Patricia's back
You see... Patricia was a fairly large woman. She was probably the most overweight player the show has ever cast. And on day four, she asked Hunter to put some suntan lotion on her back. Hunter, being a good sport, walked over to help out, and the rest of the tribe started teasing him about it. And I have to guess that Patricia made jokes about her weight all the time, because she didn't seem to mind that everyone was laughing at Hunter. She didn't seem to be offended at all.
"How about under the arms?"
In fact, Patricia even escalated the joke by asking Hunter to next rub lotion down under her arms (ie, towards her breasts). She raised her arms up in the air, and that's when Rob said something he probably shouldn't have.
Rob Mariano was always the king of saying things he would later regret, and this is one of the most jaw-droppingly inappropriate things to ever come out of his mouth. You see, Rob was standing right next to Patricia when he said it. He just blurted out the most inappropriate word without thinking and it's always made me laugh when I see this scene on tape. It was just a total Mariano moment. Patricia raises her arms, and Rob looks at her body and says "naaasty!"

Way to go, Rob.
