Rodger is a kind and genuine man who befriended everyone, and though he may not have been the greatest asset to the physical aspect, he kept his team going through thick and thin by boosting morale. However, later he ended up doing the most work toward the end of the day, and everyone loved him. He was kind to all and it only helped he was friends with Elisabeth, what a cute relationship! He and Elisabeth were the best thing about this season by far!
A nice old guy, who knew how to play the game. Even if he is older, he has a lot of strength in him. I'm glad him and Elisabeth got along so well. It made the way for Paschal and Neleh in Season 4.
Still remember him years later because he was such a wonderful and honourable man.
Did you see Rodger on Hollywood Squares? I'm telling you, he will never change. He does not act like a celebrity at all.
he was very nice. he asked pepole to vote for him just to let elisabeth a bigger chance to get to the money. a very sweet thing to do.
One of my favorites. Grant
We all cried when he got voted of. :(
Put simply Rodger is God! He made that second Survivor.
Can you ever see a sweeter guy?He could be my grandpa!Well i thought he was the nicest one and brave for jumping off that cliff!He should have been on the show longer!I hope he is still sweet!
My two year old daughter just loves Rodger (I must add, I do too)! Just tonight, she was playing with her bathtub fishing rod and said, "I am catching fish, like Rodger!" Then she finished by exclaiming "Kucha!" I think it is wonderful that Rodger is such a great example that I can feel comfortable letting my two year old daughter watch him on t.v.! Thanks Rodger!
I really enjoy watching a reality show when someone like Rodger is participating. He is a warm, kind man who has not said a nasty word about anyone. I would love to see him or Elisabeth win the game. He has displayed bravery and loyalty like no one I've watched (except Elisabeth). His wife and children must be very proud of him. Rodger, Good luck in all that you do in your life! 4/20/01 UPDATE: I have never been so sorry to see someone go, but I think he left the game in the best possible way. He helped a friend, and he was never cruel to anyone. Rodger has to be one of the most generous and kind people I've seen on a reality show. He will go far in life.
SOOOO SAD TO SEE YOU GO the show wont be the same with out you we will miss seeing you, and will put our cheers to elizabeth now!! because we now thats what you would want. Take care A BIG FAN!!!
I like Rodger. He seems to be honest, loyal and determined to get as much out of this experience as he can. He is also a good player of the game, without being cutthroat and narrow-minded. I like his friendship with Elisabeth and I don't see either one of them stabbing the other in the back. I was very impressed when Rodger (who admitted that he had a fear of water and had just learned to swim before leaving for the show) jumped off of the cliff and swam with little hesitation and great determination. He doesn't seem to rub anyone the wrong way, he does his part to support the tribe and most importantly, he tends to be a quiet observer learning about his fellow tribe members. UPDATE on Rodger..I had previously given him 4 *s and had to change that to 5..he really is Great! His determination to jump off of the cliff and swim was unbelievable, his loyalty is constant and he admittedly goes along with the "Kentucky Joe" bit because he knows it makes him even more likeable and possibly le...

Rodger is the Best!!!!! He is such a gentleman and very true to his friends. The way he has took Elisabeth under his wings and made her feel like family, is indeed a good hearted person. He seems so genuine in his feelings and he has been a good sport in everything he has done on the show. I can't swim either and am afraid of heights, so I know what it took to jump off that clift and jump into deep water. He has really outdone his job for the tribe. I don't think there is nothing that will prevent him from going to the end and winning the money. Cheers for Rodger and I wish you the best!!!!!
Another great contender. I like his overall sweetness.
Rodger has great charisma! I agree with what most people are saying about this man because he is ready and willing to go above and beyond what he is supposed to (fishing every morning...). Even if he and Elisabeth are picked off, I still think that they could have made it far because of their geniune warm character. I wish I could be more like that. Rodger, you have my five stars!
I think he's GREAT! I love the way that he and Elizabeth had bonded. I hope they made it to the end.
Rodger is such a nice, down to earth guy. I just love him. I would be happy if he won. Too bad Maralyn didn't make it long enough for the 2 of them to meet up. He seems like such a genuinly nice guy. I was afraid he wouldn't last long. Now, I think it will be hard for anyone to vote against him.
We could all use a little Kentucky Joe in our lives. I couldn't dislike him if I tried.
aww what a sweetie. he is so nice to everyone. i hope he wins. he is loyal, valuable to the tribe and sweet. Goo rodger!!!
Alongside Elisabeth, he should make it to the final two. He is, like Elisabeth, genuine and nice. And wasn't it so sweet of him to give her that heart-shaped rock? It seems like a good grandfather-granddaughter type relationship, and one of them should win the million dollars.
Rodger is a person to really admire, especially after jumping off the cliff. He is an honest person with good values. WAY TO GO for bringing the Bible and leading the tribe to say prayers.
hes ok but he seems a bit weird
Rodger is so sweet to Elisabeth and so he gets a four
rodger deserves that money if for nothing else but being a wonderful human being.....he is the best and i hope he makes it to the end.
RODGER IS THE BEST.HE REMINDS ME OF MY FATHER WHO IS ALSO FROM KENTUKY,I JUST KNOW HE IS A LOYAL AND TRUSTWORTHY MAN..WE LOVE YOU RODGER....GO FOR IT!!!!WIN THAT MONEY!!!
THIS MAN IS AWSOME!!HE ISNT AFRAID TO BE HIMSELF...HE IS THE BRAVEST PERSON OUT THERE.I WAS SO HAPPY HE GOT THE CANDY BAR IN THE EATING CONTEST AND MY HEART WENT OUT TO HIM WHEN HE HAD TO JUMP OFF OF THAT CLIFF..WE ALL CRIED HAPPY TEARS FOR HIM.WE LOVE YOU AT OUR HOUSE RODGER..GOD BLESS YOU ALWAYS
From Rodger to Jerri! What extremes we have, here! Luv ya, man! You've shown the side of humanity that NONE of the remaining "combined" tribe even know exists.
He's the cutest old man.. He is an honest and hard working man and I think he will make it farThe only prob is that if he was a little younger he would be more of a serious competitor. Kentucky Joe Rulz!!!!
Rodger is one of my top picks to win if I had my druthers. He is an honest and sweet person. If he read this, contacted me through this site and wanted to visit Alaska, I would love to be his family's tour guide. Would be honored to know someone of his character.
Along with Elizabeth, he is one of the nicest members.
He is the most deserving of all participants! I love Rodger and I hope he goes all the way!
I love Rodger he is nice,helpful,cheerful,supportive,
I love this man. He is such a tender, loving, and very resourceful person.
One of the few that doesn't tipify ugly American
What more can you say what a BIG SWEETHEART he is just a great and caring, charmer. I love em! He is a true survivor even though his swimming abilities aren't all there! But hey his personality helps! FOR SURE So keep holding on RODG we all love ya!!! Cya Wednesday!!
I really hope that Rodger gets to stay and be the winner. He really seems to get along good with everyone.
Rodger has really won my respect. I initially took notice of him when he had to jump off of a cliff (he's afraid of heights) and then swim a considerable distance (he just learned how to swim days before the show). He's very kind to Elisabeth, which shows me that he recognizes and befriends decent people in a pit of two-faced snakes. He listens to everybody; most of the time keeping his opinions to himself, which tells me he's intelligent and a savvy player. I've also learned that he is supposedly a shrewd business man back home and succeeds in most things he does. Honestly, you just look at his face and you hope he wins.
Go Roger. Survivor 2's version of Rudy
You have to give Rodger credit...he has conqured his fears....the man couldn'swim and jumped in the water....Let's hear it for Rodger
Roger is a wonderful man and a wonderful Witness! Good going Roger! As a Christian woman, I'm so proud of you! Your beliefs and leading the Kucha tribe in prayer is a wonderful Witness to thousands of viewers weekly! Praise God!
i like him hes nice
I'm so glad this gentle soul has made it this far. I think he handled Jerri's bossing him around about where to build the shelter calmly and graciously although he seemed annoyed. Hopefully the now majority party of Ogakor's will not see him as any sort of threat and perhaps he'll last even longer. He works with his tribemates and actually has skills that are helpfull.
Rodger is such a sweet old man, but I hope Jeff wins the million, hes sexy!! Jenny
Rodger all the way!!! He brings his BIBLE, overcomes a fear of water..he is a real survivor. Rodger is not the country bumpkin those folks might of first thought. He built them a fine shelter and helped clean and kill plenty of their suppers. In real life this man is an educator and buisness man and leader in his community. God Bless Rodger in all he does long after "Survivor."
More Experinced in the Game, His Wisdom will Take Him Far.
