Survivor 2012: Colton Attempts to Explain Himself

Survivor One World’s Colton hasn’t had many fans since the season started and last Wednesday he may have lost the ones he did have with his terrible attitude.

Now the Survivor 2012 contestant has taken to Twitter to try to explain his actions on the show to date:

Were my comments ignorant? YES! They were meant to be funny..I see they weren’t. Do I regret them? I’m torn. In a way, yes b/c it hurt ppl

..but seeing myself act that way on television helps me to grow as a person b/c it’s uncomfortable and embarrassing for ME to watch. It’s kind of one of those situations where you you don’t really realize how you sound until it’s played back and you’re literally cringing.

I seriously don’t hate anyone. I make fun of sense of humor as always been kind sarcastic and somewhat critical. I call myself a “queen” as a joke. Am I a bigot? I don’t think so. I think I was a 20 year old brat who had never been out into the real world, and what I thought was funny and ok wasn’t. I’ve learned I can still be funny and it doesn’t have to be at the expense of some1 else. *pageant wave*

It’s funny how most of what he said was just about what kind of person he is. He barely apologized and didn’t specifically address any of the harsh things he’s said. And that’s fine. No one owes anyone an explanation of anything when you’ve been on a reality TV show. I think most of us know now that being under the pressure of such a show can change a person.

But for crying out loud, if you are actually going to address it, then at least make it sound like you’re sorry. Colton would need a public relations firm to get himself out of this hole. So why bother trying on your own?
