Anyone else a fan? This is probably my favorite TV show, I never miss an episode, and if I do, I catch it online.

New season started last night and I'm just watching it tonight.

http://www.cbs.com/primetime/survivor/

Not sure who got voted off yet on this first episode, so won't check back in till I've seen the rest of the show in case of any spoilers.

Does anyone want to do a Survivor Pool? I relaize about a week too late, but could hold a lotto with remaing survivors, I think it's 15 left. Anyone that says they want in and then randomly draw names assigning each person to a survivor, last person standing wins. I may be able to offer a gift card or two as prizes. I have to check to see if I have any leftover. Or just do it for bragging rights.

If interested, PM me or reply in this thread. You must be a fan though.

Contest details:

I just verified gift card status through SS website, and all appear valid. Nothing is promised, guaranteed or implied, Having said that, I have 2 $10 GC's (3rd and 2nd prize) and a $25 1st place prize. Nothing fantastic, I know, but it will make it more fun if you're already a fan.

Once I get all 16 remaining spots filled by this Wednesday, I will randomly assign board members to survivors. I hope to get at least 8 entries, preferably 16, so I can double up entries if necessary. Top 3 survivors get money, sole survivor getting the $25 gift card code emailed to them, as well as 2nd and 3rd getting the $10 GC PM'd.


Edit: tribe colors based upon original colors, not redistibution.

Kota
Bob - Physics Teacher (Beachbum) = WINNER
Ace - Conceited Photographer (Mista305) = ELIMINATED #7/8
Jessica/Sugar - pin-up model (Mista305)=3rd Place
Marcus - Medical Field (Beachbum) = ELIMINATED #9
Charlie - Management Consultant (The Mike) = ELIMINATED #10
Paloma - Student/surfer (Mesa) = ELIMINATED #3

All SPOTS FILLED


8 players, 2 survivors each = 16 of the 16 remaining on 10/2:
Batty
The Mike
B24Karrot
Mista305
Progmatinee
Beachbum
Lcummins (I know you said no to GC's but still adding, you can direct to someone else)
Mesa



Edit: If not enough interest, I'll just let the thread pass on.

Edit2: Okay, 8 people have said yes. So I'm going to cut it there, and give 2 survivors to each person involved.

It's only 6:13 here in AZ, and tonight is survivor night, and I haven't cheated online to see if a person was voted out.

This is how I'm going to assign random Survivors to each of the 8 people in the pool. I'll put all 16 names in a hat, and draw them out one at a time. the first one will go to Batty, next one to The Mike, etc. in order of people signing up, and repeat process one time, for each members second survivor.


Here goes.... (give me 10 minutes)

I'm a big fan of both Survivor and The Amazing Race. Last night's episode was pretty good, but the tribe of fools better get it together before they get wiped out. And I already have 2 people I can't stand. :lol

It looks great in HD, btw.

The Mike
09-26-2008, 10:14 PM
I love Survivor but less than The Amazing Race which I'm really waiting for. The Tribe of Fools is already making mistakes keeping the three dead weight members and getting rid of Jennifer because she was "too sad" yet performing in challenges well. I have a feeling unless the other tribe really screws up, they'll be a wipeout similar to the season with Stephenie.

Batty
09-26-2008, 10:35 PM
I'm always amazed when you see some people on this show who act like they've never seen an episode of Survivor before. Especially the ones who just run at the mouth.

And voting off strong players in the beginning is really dumb. I can't believe they were thinking about voting off the guy (I don't remember names yet) who went to Exile Island just because they suspected he had the immunity idol? C'mon!

The Amazing Race starts Sunday. :banana

The Mike
09-26-2008, 10:37 PM
I can't believe they've kept GC on for two tribals, he runs his mouth, refuses to do anything, ran away from being an elected leader and has the typical youthful attitude you see on these shows. You would have thought if they were voting out annoyances they would have gone that route. Getting rid of the 60 year old lady was smart since she wasn't producing from the first second but that tribe certainly has a lot of lame ducks on it.

Mesa
09-26-2008, 11:17 PM
alright, just finished the end of first show.

18 original survivors, 2 voted off in first episode. So that leaves 16.

I just verified gift card status through SS website, and all appear valid. Nothing is promised, guaranteed or implied, Having said that, I have 2 $10 GC's (3rd and 2nd prize) and a $25 1st place prize. Nothing fantastic, I know, but it will make it more fun if you're already a fan.

Just PM me if you want to be included in the survivor pool.

Entries so far (I assume Batty and Mike want to be included just for the entertainment factor):

Mesa
Batty
The Mike

13 spots left (please try and be a survivor fan or wannabe fan to enter)

Once I get all 16 remaining spots filled by this Wednesday, I will randomly assign board members to survivors. I hope to get at least 8 entries, preferably 16, so I can double up entries if necessary. Top 3 survivors get money, sole survivor getting the $25 gift card code emailed to them, as well as 2nd and 3rd getting the $10 GC PM'd.

Ace - Conceited Photographer (Boy George Look-a-Like)
Charlie - Management Consultant
Crystal - Preschool techer/Olympic goldChampion
Dannie - maintenace supervisor
Jacquie - Medical Device Sales
Kelly - assitant manager/buyer (Also HOT)
Marcus - Medical Field

Corine - Pharmaceutical Sales with attitude
Dan - Attorney finding himself
Gillian* - Nurse/Mom/Grandmom
Jessica/Sugar - pin-up model
Ken - Professional Video Game player
Matty - Personal Trainer
Paloma - Student/surfer/HOT
Susie - Part Time Hair Dresser/Mom/Wife

I'll figure out who's on who's tribe, website not too friendly right now.

Batty
09-26-2008, 11:44 PM
I'm in for the fun of it. I hope we get some others to join. :banana

Ace and Randy are the two guys I can't stand so far. It's hard to judge after only one (well, two) episodes, but these two seem like real jerks.

Hey Mesa I'm in.............

Ace is a jerk and I don't believe his accent for one minute
Gillian needed to go she was on my last lesbian nerve
Dan thinks too much, I think he over thinks
Olympian? You couldn't even get up the damn hill....LOL
Randy? Is that his name, I think he is a jerk........"Sit on my ass and just watch everyone fall apart", or something like that, yeah that is how to be a team member, and you must be a team to start out with.
GC.....just stopped digging like he didn't even care, "uh, I got tired"....twit.

Although Fang sucked butt, I have to give them some kudos for the fishing hook out of glasses and actually catching fish with no fishing stuff, they do get points for that.

Anyway can't wait till next week..........Sundays True Blood, Thursdays Survivor and soon regular CSI..............those are my guilty pleasures.

It's always different. It's the inter-relationships between members that make it so fascinating.

But to answer your question, the major difference since you watched last is there is now an exile island, where one person of losing tribe gets voted to be there. On that island, there are clues as to an additional hidden immunity idol, which may be within the island, or at their own base camp; it's varied. Each new week, if the idol isn't found, a new clue is revealed. Once found, that immunity idol can be played at any time as long as presented prior to vote count. If played, survivor is safe, and next person with highest votes is out, and immunity idol is replaced. It's changes the dynamics ALOT.

The best was when James the Grave Digger had both idols (one on each island) by playing the game perfectly and didn't use either one before getting voted out.

I never watched the first season ironically I thought it was stupid...but now I am into it because I love to study people and see how they interact and the things that different situations will do to them...its also interesting when a super weak player ie Cherie got to the final few not once but TWICE!!!

I would love to see a survivor super all stars with James and Rupert and several others...

I'm in for the pool.

I really hope that they don't mix up the tribes until every last member of the Tribe of Fools is voted OUT! If they are going to be stupid, they should have to pay. Almost every season there is a tribe that makes poor decisions, and they get saved when the tribes get mixed up. Like somebody else said, I want to see a season similar to the one where Stephanie's tribe got pagonged.

This is for pride, not gift cards! LOL. Mesa, what say you to randomly assigning a picking order and we draft our survivors? Also, if we only get 8 we can each have 2, either way we assign them.

Anyway, I hate the seasons that aren't competitive in team challenges. Really hope the red team picks it up.

No matter what the producers do it seems teams get mismatched, it doesn't matter if they pick the teams or they let the players pick...

I used the CBS website to get the pics from. Let me see how to fix it.


Edit: Actually, I got the names writing them down during the first show introduction, now that I think about it.

"GC" = Danny (I incorreclty spelled Dannie), per CBS site. I'll append it now.

All is well.

GC is a jerk.............did you see him in the first challenge tonight, he just bent over and gave up AGAIN,,,,,,that is the second time he has done that crap. Last week while they were digging for the puzzle pieces he just sat on the edge of the hole crying about how tired he was, then tonight when Randy said "Hey we are running out of rice we need to eat less", GC was not hearing any of that. What a MORON with a capital M.

Yeah, he won't last long. I like Corrine. And my only survivor left, Matty. But still to early to tell. After next week, I'll have a much stronger opionion on all. Funny about that blond pinup girl on exile island, huh?



Edit: Also like old physics guy Bob to got to top 5 or 6, but get picked off because of threat level before final 3.

Corinne reminds me a lot of Jerri Manthey in looks and attitude. I think that will be her downfall. Charlie I think will do well if he can stop "mooning" over Marcus he reminds a lot of Todd Herzog who won Survivor a couple of seasons ago. I think GC is building his own grave but that can be an asset in Survivor because if you are hated enough people will want to bring to the finals because they feel its an easy win.

This season will go down as one of the worst survivors.

sort of agree. Not all that great. I did like Sugar and what she brought to the game though... and Randy, even though he was a prick.

I want another Rupert-type on survivor. I think the show may be a little over-done by now. Except nothing else to replace it except for Amazing Race. I can do without all the other reality crap on TV... (except Real Word/Rroad Rules/Gauntlet)

BeachBum
12-16-2008, 09:49 AM
Dang! I forgot all about this thread. Agree with the others, this was one of the weaker seasons. Sugar was all over the map. First she was mad 'cuz Kenny tricked her into dumping Ace, then she works with him, before finally switching over to Matty and Bob. Then she dumps Matty and keeps Bob for the final 3??!!! What was that about?

I think my favorite line of the entire season was the tribal when Crystal was eliminated. Sugar is waving her idol in everybody's face, and Probst asks her, 'are you sure that's real?,' and Bob makes a face and says, 'Hey don't look at me, I didn't make that one.'

CLASSIC.

2nd favorite moment of season-- the tribal after Randy got voted off when he came out with the mohawk-- who else was thinking he was gonna go all psycho a la Travis Bickle/Taxi Driver?

Bob was awesome, much of the time they showed him he was making some contraption just like the Professor on Gilligan's Island. I wanna know how he folded a Buff into a bow tie.

Thanks for the contest, Mesa.

as for the one of the worst seasons, i don't know about that, there has been worse.
it seems that any of the seasons that aren't located in a tropical setting with beaches and ocean seem to suffer the same fate.
it could be that the show does seem to be running a little flat lately, and i did like the fact that they did have some unique challenges this season. seems that in the past they have been reworking alot of the old challenges from past seasons.
i'm sure that we'll see another all-star season pretty soon.

Want to make the show unique again?... Go to a frozen climate where skin won't be on parade.... That's what they haven't done.

Surviving in a frozen tundra...:sick:lol

Theres a few reasons. Definately the skin, but also logistics. Its easier to set up the challenges, film, etc in warm weather. Also, they like doing it in places that people wish they can be.

There's a few reasons I didn't like this season, one of which is there was hardly any real tough and bruising physical challenges. Bocce ball? Slingshot golf?

I think one thing that would spark new life is if the tribes were given a calendar of events.

Day 1 Strength Challenge
Day 5 Puzzle
Day 8 Athletic Competition
Day 10 Balance Challenge
etc.

That way it would force the tribes to debate whether they should elimate/keep certain skilled players based on what they knew was upcoming.

Also, another idea is that the winning team has the opportunity to retain the other teams eliminated player in exchange for one of their own.

I think they need to do a No-Stars season and bring back people who were voted off 1st or 2nd to see how they would do. And there were a couple really annoying people voted off first so that could be fun.

I'd be down with that. Unfortunately, so many of the 1st and 2nds were old then they might be ancient now. I always felt bad for the one dude that actually got voted out because he was a minister and people were worried he be preaching all the time.

that's a good idea, that way the players don't really know each other. not like when ozzie came back to play against the fans, well he always had a target on his back cause everyone knew they couldn't beat him at the challenges. or like someone else said but with a twist at the end of each reward challenge the winning team must also choose to switch one player with the losing tribe.

and also have the chance to bring back previously voted out players from earlier in the game.
