Fantasy "Survivor"

The pop-culture savants at Grantland have done it again. They've concocted a fantasy-football style game based on CBS's hit "Survivor," exposing all of the show's cliches and themes.

Take a look:

* No points for unintentional nudity
* All hook-up points scored at triple value (they deserve them for hooking up with someone who hasn’t showered for a month)
* Making a catty exit speech: 25 points
* Wining a “tie vote” challenge: 10 points
* Stealing or hiding food: 15 points
* Killing a mammal and eating it (i.e., no fish or insects): 15 points (only killer gets points)
* Receiving medical attention: 20 points
* Adding additional flair on tribal vote card (smiley faces, hearts, symbols, etc.): -10 points
* Announcing that you are "in control of this game": 5 points
* Accusing someone of eating more food than they were rationed: 5 points
* Being sent home with an unused immunity idol: -20 points
* Jeff Probst stops addressing you by your real name and starts using a nickname: 25 points (one time only)
* The Loved One who comes to the island is not a parent, spouse, kin, or sibling: 20 points
* No Loved One comes to the island: 100 points
* Claiming your real job gives you an advantage in the game: 25 points
* Crying in Tribal Council: 5 bonus points
* Jury member makes a survivor cry in the Final Tribal Council: 20 points
* Getting injured in an immunity challenge in an unathletic manner: 15 points
