Fans of the show, I hope this one beats last seasons as far as likable/hatable people go. Last year was lacking a bit. However, the big suprise this season, at the start of the season looks pretty promising as far as "making them play from the get go" goes.


And, the first three weeks challenges are described as "THE MOST PHYSICAL EVER" so, that seems good. Hopefully it will live up to the hype.

When they said that this time they start with nothing, it almost piques my interest enough to watch.

But given past history, why bother. If it only starts as them being completely on their own, what's the point? And if they are still voting people off, what's the point?

How would you suggest they whittle the field down? Death?

No, but if it were truly Survivor then they should be stuck on the island until they ask off...

I had heard that 3 players are gone by the end of the opening espisode this year by voting and/or quitting. I just want to see if someone finally actually knows how to start a fire without matches or a magnifying glass.

The two extra people in question in the first episode don't quit, they get dq'd because they get lost. At least that's what Entertainment Weekly (or TV Guide, or some other magazine I read this week) said...

I've heard the tribes aren't pre-set...they're chosen once they reach the island.


Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
There are two people who aren't picked to be in a tribe. They are the first two to go.


This comes from a CBS chat with Probst himself.

I'm looking forward to the next Amazing Race more then Survivor but it beats whatever else is on Thursday nights. The beach setting works well and they seem to be raising the bar of what they'll put people through.

They really should raise the prize to about $5 million dollars. Then you would see people REALLY sell their souls to try and win. $1 million after taxes and everything is great but its not 'set for life' money. If you get $5 million, pay taxes on it, and invest safely, you can live pretty well for the rest of your life.

Well, I liked this first show, seems to show them that its a tougher game. Three people going home right off the bat is pretty cool. Feel bad for the ones who didnt get picked though, thats a hard way to be eliminated.

That singing woman should be happy she was eliminated early, because the alternative would have been everyone taking turns choking the life out of her.

I won't spoil things for those who haven't watched yet


Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
Koror was smart to just take fire in the challenge but how dumb were they to take the new beach ? Why not make Ulong make the longer trip and have to start from scratch again ? You already have them down emotionally and now by one person - why not make them work harder too ? It almost serves them right that they flipped their outrigger and sunk their reward.


Still too early to tell who to like and who to hate but I certainly did not agree withe the decision at tribal council. Bring on the rats.....

Since my wife and I knew that they were going to choose players via the pick-up basketball game route, we suspected the singing English teacher was going home first. We did suspect Willard would also being going home as 60 year old lawyers are not generally high in the pecking order on Survivor. I think Cobe the hairdresser did a fantastic job convincing everyone that Jonathan? was the one they ought to send home first. Though I think he really pissed off Angie, and I would not piss off someone with that many tattoos.

When the show was over, me and the girlfriend who always ALWAYS argue over what strategy would have worked, both came to the conclusion that teh gay guy was right NOT to pick the tattood chick. Remember, she was all like "OH LOOK! We are freaks, we'll get along" when he was probably thinking "Just because I am gay, doesnt mean I am gonna hang with the fag hag"

Good show opener, I would have kept willard as well. SOMEBODY has to be able to be a father figure type, may as well keep him around.
