Crazy Story of the Day: Marloes Coenen Cast in Dutch Version of ‘Survivor’

(Let me guess: You’re not here to make friends? / Photo courtesy of Strikeforce.)

We haven’t heard much from former Strikeforce women’s bantamweight champion Marloes Coenen since that whole Golden Glory debacle saw her get axed from the Zuffa banner along with John Olav Einemo and the Overeem brothers. And while Einemo and Alistair were quickly brought back to the promotion, Coenen opted to sign a three fight deal with North Carolina based BlackEye Promotions instead, a move that she might be kicking herself over in light of current circumstances.

In either case, it seems that the reason we have heard so little from Coenen since her fallout was not due to any legal issues or bitter resentment, but was rather more primitive in nature. (See what I did there? Triple entendre. Suck it.) Turns out, Marloes was cast alongside twelve of the Netherlands’ biggest celebrities, whoever the hell they are, as part of a Survivor type reality show called “De Schat van De Oranje” (The Treasure of Orange). According to some research that I most certainly did not do, the show dropped these hapless celebs out of a helicopter onto a remote island off the coast of Thailand, then pitted them against one another in a (death) race to find, you guessed it, hidden treasure. Being that it was shot in Thailand, the celebrities faced opposition in the form of crooked cops, gang fights, and transsexual prostitutes.

We’re not going to put our judgmental faces on, because honestly, on the scale of “Weird Things MMA Fighters Have Done For Money/Fame,” this is definitely closer to the Kimbo Slice: SpikeTV Host end of the spectrum than it is the Aaron Brink/Dick Delaware end, so we’re all for it. Get that bread, Marloes.

Check out a video preview of the upcoming show below.

We don’t know if there are any Dutch speaking members of the Potato Nation, but if anyone can inform us as to what the hell anyone is actually talking about, we’d truly appreciate it. Because as of now, all we are aware of is that the Dutch apparently don’t have phrases to substitute for such English classics as “That bitch,” “Oh my God,” or “Fuck you up.” The more you know.

“The Treasure of Orange” is set to debut on March 30th from an unbeknownst Netherlands based channel that none of you get. We’ll try to hijack the episodes as they are broadcast for your viewing pleasure.

Coenen, on the other hand, will be looking to rebound from her title losing effort to Meisha Tate back in July of 2011 when she faces 5-1 Romy Ruyssen at the main event of Invicta FC 1, which goes down from the Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kansas on April 28th.

I will keep repeating my mantra until it has become true: Marloes will beat Rousey. In an MMA competition, Marloes wins. In a competition to see who gives me a boner, Marloes wins again.

Fred..i think “De Schat van De Oranje” tranlation you did is wrong.. i think it is "i would shove an orange in her shit"..

The game
"If I participate, I'm going to win ... I'm fanatical blood!" Physically, she certainly draw, she has a good condition, she is training several hours daily. Marloes has completed her high school and then went to the University, but did not finish because she wanted to focus purely on the sport. Marloes is raised with two brothers and her sport is primarily between the men. Her biggest fear is spiders and heights, she has trouble, but as she herself has no control, such as attractions at the fair and bungee jumping.

Google translated bio: Marloes Coenen
# 1 woman in the world MMA fighter
Marloes Coenen is a Dutch mixed martial arts fighter. Currently she is active in the American Strike Force. The 30 year old Marloes is a real ram, full of energy and determination. She is also very dominant. "If there is a clever man to sit there so I go over it." And not fighting, but really with words, she is very good gebekt and stands her ground. Even if someone insults her or disrespected, she countered. But to make her really angry, you make it very colorful. And once they get mad at someone, it's not very good fast. But she's definitely a different side, because she is also very sensitive.

"Crazy" maybe, but not made up:

Did you mean "Crazy story of the day" or "Completely made up story of the day"? I don't see any mention of Coenen in that trailer...

I'm pretty sure “De Schat van De Oranje” translates to "The Shit in the Orange". Then again, who knows what the Dutch would consider to be treasure.

I think I prefer Marloes over Rousey any day.

Nice try TungFo, but I'm pretty sure that's only a double entendre. Not too bad tho.
TungFo- March 8, 2012 at 9:09 am
I'd totally hit that.
