New Survivor Fans vs. "Favorites" Cast - 01/11/13 04:23 PM

Ok, so has anyone seen the lineup? I laughed at some returning players who are termed "favorites"....

Andrea Boehlke from Redemption Island (Don't remember her at all)

Brandon Hantz season South Pacific(Ok, I remember him and he's a draw)

Brenda Lowe season Nicaragua (Barely memorable)

Corrine Kaplan season Gabon (Who?)

Dawn Meehan season South Pacific (Liked her)

Erik Reichenbach season Micronesia (liked him)

Francesca Hogi Season redemption island (drama)

Cochran (drama)

Phillip (CRAZY!)

Malcolm (will be voted out fast, he was too good)

Phillip AND Brandon? This may be the first season ever I do not watch.

O I hope that Malcolm stays for a few weeks - he is a cutie pie :-) eye candy with brains too!! Double threat! Yep - they will vote him off right away. I agree BF - not the best 'favorite' line up...

That line up is not my favorite.

Personally, I would rather watch 'new' contestants. Part of the amusement of the show is watching them figure out how to do things on their own.
I don't care for the recycling of players. When they come back the game is changed (obviously). Aside from the head games and thought processes, even the basic survival techniques. For example, look at how Ozzy and Jonathan taught their tribes how to do things around camp - things a newbie tribe would have to figure out... how to build shelter, fish, pick coconuts, etc. I like when "the students are in the classroom without the teacher" showing them how to do things - relying on whatever someone in the group may know. And, reminding them 'it's a game' - it's often more interesting when people actually forget they're on a game show! (And, while I'm at it, I'd prefer no more Jimmy Johnson and Jeff Kent types either - lol)
With the thousands and thousands of people out there who would LOVE to be on Survivor, I know they have plenty to pick from. They have held Survivor casting calls around here many times.
I love Survivor and will always watch, but I prefer seeing new people given the chance to outwit and outplay the others, and then win the money. It's just more entertaining, imho.

Signed,
Way too invested crazy grin

Citrus - that is perhaps the best way I have heard my own opinion stated by someone else :-)

Well, what do you think about the first show? Phillip has already gotten on my nerves!

Do you really find it at all surprising?

No. He'll probably be one of the final three. cry eek mad

I like the alliance of the "cool kids" for the fans. They may be popular, but they aren't too good at math (4<6). They looked absolutely shocked that Allie got booted.

I like the chick that caught the dude with the idol. Obviously, i'm not good with names.
Posted By: Beagles22

Re: New Survivor Fans vs. "Favorites" Cast - 02/25/13 06:46 PM

I stink at the names at this point too, but so far am not so impressed with the cast. It usually takes me a few weeks to get 'involved' though :-)

Who was voted off last night?

Re: New Survivor Fans vs. "Favorites" Cast - 03/14/13 02:42 PM

Brandon..He had a huge meltdown so they had a tribal council instead of an immunity challange and all voted for Brandon...He's gone.

That was some meltdown. That guy has some serious issues!

I may have to go find that online and watch...I missed it....

Re: New Survivor Fans vs. "Favorites" Cast - 03/14/13 06:14 PM

Whole thing made me very uncomfortable, he is in need of some serious counseling. I really believe Survivor should NOT have invited him back.

If someone cant handle the pressure of a non-reality, reality show....how does he get through actual life?
Just a thought.

I think he(Brandon) has some very serious issues. But I think Phillip is a looney toon too! Cant stand to watch him when he is in that stupid pink underwear. Makes me throw up in my mouth a little. sick

Re: New Survivor Fans vs. "Favorites" Cast - 03/20/13 09:49 PM

OK, I agree on the Pink Undies. GROSS!!! Hopefully he is next, the most irritating should go the fastest....

Re: New Survivor Fans vs. "Favorites" Cast - 03/21/13 03:37 PM

What were they thinking at tribal councel? I understand the fav's were worried about those two being friends, but they got rid of muscle, when they didn't have much to spare! The teams are terribly uneven.

Re: New Survivor Fans vs. "Favorites" Cast - 04/04/13 02:20 PM

I loved seeing some bug eating again! grin and sick

Glad to see Corrine gone - (she was one of my least liked contestants... ever)
Posted By: Dlynn58

Re: New Survivor Fans vs. "Favorites" Cast - 04/04/13 02:57 PM

She was certainly blindsided...glad she is gone too! I have to say, Malcome is still my favorite! I still want them to get rid of Phillip...can't stand him.
Posted By: chenin

Re: New Survivor Fans vs. "Favorites" Cast - 04/04/13 03:29 PM

The look on Corrine's face was priceless! She went from the smug smile to a look of total shock. Phillip is bonkers...he needs to go home.

Go Cochran. No one else is the slightest bit interesting.
Posted By: Beagles22

Re: New Survivor Fans vs. "Favorites" Cast - 04/22/13 07:59 PM

I finally watched it yesterday, had to DVR it as I was out of town. LOVE that tribal. Still don't have my choice for a winner, too many duds this year!!
Posted By: Dlynn58

Re: New Survivor Fans vs. "Favorites" Cast - 04/22/13 08:44 PM

I am pulling for Malcolm. Second choice is Cochran.
Posted By: Beagles22

Re: New Survivor Fans vs. "Favorites" Cast - 04/23/13 02:59 PM

I like Malcolm too - but thinking he won't make it to the end as he clearly has too much control now from the way the last tribal went. Cochran is a good choice, but hoping he isn't too easy to pick off.
Posted By: raitchjay

Re: New Survivor Fans vs. "Favorites" Cast - 04/23/13 03:05 PM

These choices clearly go against my Survivor norm of who to root for, i.e., choose the hottest remaining chick and root for her. That would be the blond gal, whatever her name is. smile
Posted By: Beagles22

Re: New Survivor Fans vs. "Favorites" Cast - 04/23/13 04:46 PM

LOL! The hot chicks generally get far, but don't generally win. I will have to make my decision on who to root for soon!!
Posted By: Bagweaver

Re: New Survivor Fans vs. "Favorites" Cast - 04/25/13 03:56 AM

Well, my fav (Malcolm) is gone. Hope Cochran wins now.

Re: New Survivor Fans vs. "Favorites" Cast - 04/25/13 02:07 PM

I have to agree weaver. Go Cochran!!

Re: New Survivor Fans vs. "Favorites" Cast - 04/26/13 11:56 AM

I'm kind of in Eddie's camp right now. Of the outsider "jock" alliance, he's played the smart game by keeping his head down, flirting with Andrea, and trying to keep the target off his back.

Re: New Survivor Fans vs. "Favorites" Cast - 04/30/13 02:58 AM

I'm pulling for Cochran at this point. His commentaries always crack me up!

I still crack up at Eddie's original alliance's bad math.

That sucked. She should have spent time with her family and dawn's family.... she wouldn't have been voted out smile

It's to be expected. They will be turning on each other now.

Wow, I was shocked, but then I usually am on this show!!! She just tried too hard to be liked - that never works.

I was so happy he won! I sure didn't want Dawn to win and the other one did nothing to deserve the win.

How about next season: Blood vs. Water. Should be interesting
Posted By: Beagles22

Re: New Survivor Fans vs. "Favorites" Cast - 05/13/13 06:40 PM

So guessing friend groups vs. family groups?
Posted By: Citrus

Re: New Survivor Fans vs. "Favorites" Cast - 05/13/13 11:19 PM

I read that it's probably a "favorites vs. family" - a tribe of returning players who compete against a tribe of loved ones of each of the returnees.

I might guess you compete against your loved one, but then after a merge... Is blood thicker than water? (I would say yes - if I can't win the million, I want Dad/Sis/Uncle to, even if he/she was on the other tribe!)

So, basically, more recycling of players...

Possible/rumored returnees:
Aras Baskauskas (winner in Panama), RC Saint-Amour (oh,no - that laugh), Kat Edorsson (hehe), Stephanie Valencia (Russell Hantz's girl alliance), Rob Cesternino and Tina Wesson (3rd try), Gervase Peterson (also hehe), Terry Deitz, Natalie Bolton, and evil wacko Colton Cumbie.

Re: New Survivor Fans vs. "Favorites" Cast - 05/14/13 03:32 PM

I am tired of the recycled players. There have to be other people in the world that want to play and give new blood to this show.

Please don't bring Colton back! mad
