Survivor Rewatch

Recommended Posts

Oh wow, the villains of Marquesas are Paschal and Neleh.

They spend the entire first half about how they want to play fair and not use alliances or manipulate people... but they are in an alliance the entire time.  They then form a 5 person alliance to take out the Rotu 4 for being arrogant, then brag in front of them about how they only want people who deserve it to win.  They are straight up saying people shouldn't be in alliances, so lets form an alliance and vote them all out.  They aren't bad or mean people by any means, but they go on a power trip and are very holier than thou about the entire thing.

This is a weird season.

I really wish Robb had lasted just one more Tribal Council in Thailand.  I would have loved to see the reformed Robb interact with Clay and try to apologize for the whole strangling him thing... and just seeing him try to deal with Jan would have been great.  He's one person I'm really sad didn't make the merge... or in this case when both tribes lived together.

Sophie Clarke... what is your favorite Survivor memory? 

Quote

“My favorite moment on Survivor was when my tribe won the Jack and Jill challenge. The animosity between Upolu and Savaii before the challenge was palpable. We Upolans, egged on by Coach, saw our season as a showdown between good and evil— the nerds vs the jocks! The 'Dragon Slayer' vs the jungle man! 90210 vs 9021zero! And the J&J challenge was the culmination of this war. We all knew; the winner would gain the numbers and the loser would be Pagonged. Not only did our underdog ragtag family — adorned with paint-on bras and six packs — beat the actual bikini-clad hotties, but we got to kick back and catch an Adam Sandler classic as we celebrated our momentous, game changing victory!”

South Pacific has been my favorite season since China, which makes me a complete weirdo.

I am watching. I am loving it so far. Lots of really fun characters.

I did not. I will never be able to be on Survivor. Stupid diabetes.

Did you apply?

I watched episode 1. I was a big fan of Natalie, Mike, John, Bi, Davies, Elizabeth and Lyrsa.

This is probably exactly who I liked as well, though Bi doesn't do much for me. I'd add Gabby and Christian to the list (though Christian could easily become a bit annoying fairly soon). I also know Nick a bit from being a Rob Has a Podcast patron so I'm rooting for him as well.

I liked Bi for the domestic violence stuff. 

episode 2 was good but i felt Jessica's story was untold.

Wasn't sure where to post this but Rudy Boesch from Season 1 has passed away.

Edit: fake news apparently. He is still alive, although suffering from alzheimers

I've started watching again, I needed a break after that Heroes vs Hustlers vs Healers or whatever seasons because it easily ranked as a top 3 worst seasons for me.  Redemption Island, Caramoan and this season.  All for the same reason, they felt completely rigged for certain winners.  I called who was going to win in like the first 3 episodes and the entire end of the game felt super rigged to make sure it happened, especially the change to the Final 4 fire challenge.  It felt like they handed him 3 idols and when he still lose the final immunity challenge they changed the rules so it was impossible for him to get voted out for the entire second half of the game.

Ghost Island was not very good either, but more so because the heavy focus on all the returning advantages seemed to leave the actual castaways not matter.  I finished the finale and like 20 minutes later I couldn't even remember who won, or was even in the final 3.  Just mostly a forgettable season.... except that one dude that looked like Matthew Lillard for some reason.

I'm watching the finale of David vs Goliath as I type this, a much better season with more focus on the actual players.  It blows my mind how insanely jacked Johnny Mundo looks.  Also, Christian talks exactly like Hank Azaria's character, David, from Friends.

He has since passed away, because they had a thing at the end of the last episode. :(

Working through Edge of Extinction now.  I think the biggest tell was the first post merge challenge, two people got eliminated and when Probst said their name I had no idea who the hell they were, 6 episodes in.  I hated the Outcast twist in Pearl Islands so I'm not thrilled to see it back.

It looks like Season 40 is finally an all winners season.  I'm glad to see a few early/mid season winners.  I think the only acceptable result is if Sandra wins again so she can stay the only two time winner.

I am a bad Survivor fan, as I have not watched an entire season since Game Changers.

There is always some stuff to enjoy in every season once you get passed the actual game of Survivor.  In Edge of Extinction I'm liking Wardog.  Mostly because he calls himself fucking Wardog, and partially because he is laughable bad at literally everything and constantly getting yelled at by the women and complaining about it.  Survivor needs more comical idiots who don't realize it.

How do you like Reem? She is one of my favourite Survivors of the last few years.

She hasn't really done much yet except go from caring motherly figure to "I want to talk to the manager".  The news anchor dude is pretty great too, I love how he went on this big thing to Wardog about how he was going to work with him and then just stopped and basically told him to fuck off because he was in the majority now... then immediately got flipped on.
