YES!!!!!!!!!!  I love Survivor.  Have been watching it for about 5 years now.  I have two words:  NaOnka sucks.

EDIT:  Additionally, I'm a fan of Big Brother and Amazing Race.

She was one of the most detestable human beings I've ever had the displeasure of being able to see on TV.  Of the ones that were left, I think Fabio deserved to win, but I don't know.  I'd still have preferred to see someone like Marty, though he was irritating, win it.

So next season is Redemption Island as indicated at the end of this last run, but there's another secret they apparently didn't want to give up at that particular time.

I didn't see this past season, but have seen all of the others except the first season.  So basically, I have seem them all except the first and last ones.  Not sure I'll get back into it this spring, but we'll see.  Seeing the strong outvoted by the majority weak every season, as well as crybaby juries handing the money to undeserving winners because they are bitter, has gotten really old.

OMG is this ever the case.  The competent, GOOD game players are getting shafted early on, because they're a threat.  It leaves a bunch of numbskulls who get there and try to win on the basis of who they pissed off the least.

Russell may have been irritating on the Samoa season, but I think the jury giving the win to Natalie over him was ridiculously awful.

Not joking, though the All-Stars part was incorrect.  I was thinking of Amazing Race, whose next season will be All-Stars.  The other part is correct, as far as I've heard:

I usually subscribe to the notion that whoever won that season deserved it, but Samoa ended the wrong way.
I don't like Russell, but he played a great game in Samoa. People who believe Natalie deserved it over him are delusional.

However, I think the bitter jury has always been around, it's more profound now. Part of the challenge of survivor is to vote people out, and yet still get them to vote for you. That takes skill. If they hate you, then you didn't play a perfect game.
In fact, Nicaragua was not a very bitter jury at all (aside from the very bitter Gollum Jane, and Dan who just wanted to shit all over Chase and Sash).

I have missed a handful of episodes only because of holidays or illness over the years.

I was also in a local version of the show where we had to live at the National Fair, for 10 days. Our challenges involved rides, trivia, carnival games and of course dealing with dirty "Carnies".  A word to the wise...."Carnies" are pretty much drunk or high 100% of the time they are working...and it's better that way. Believe me.
Take care everyone - Bet you all didn't even notice I was gone.

Happy Lives to you all.

My wife and I enjoy Survivor.  We are looking forward to Redemption Island.

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Hahaha.  Dragging it out, I see.  Two former castaways listed on CBS' site, but they still won't come right out and say who yet, though the speculation has been rampant for some time now.

It's baffling to me that NASCAR (Non Athletic Sport Centered Around Rednecks), wrestling, UFC, football, and countless other things I could name are still on TV, but amazingly, they are.  I cannot stand any of those things.  Football I only slightly tolerate because Mrs. Cozmo does and when forced, I root for teams of people I know, but it wouldn't hurt my feelings if football never again fucked with the schedules of other TV shows.

So yeah, it's still on because, despite being "reality TV" it is fairly entertaining.

Nothing's wrong with them.  I just don't like them.  Doesn't mean that they don't have value, because there are people that enjoy them.  Just like Survivor.

It's baffling to me that you would come into this thread solely to post this.

Also, having Russell in 3 of the last 4 seasons is not something I'm too thrilled about.

Me either.  It's a little too much.  Plus, by this point, anyone who is participating in Survivor (if they have paid any attention to Survivor previously) will know Russell and will be (if they have ANY brains) chomping at the bit to show him the door immediately.

I agree. However, there may be one or two players who will want to keep Russell around, considering he's such a jury goat.

I feel like Boston Rob will not get the same treatment. Pre-merge, he is very much a good leader and a strong team player. In HvV, he had a great alliance going that got fucked up by Tyson, but he dominated the challenges and the Heroes stood no chance while he was in the game. After Rob went out, the Villains were a sinking ship.
Because of that, I feel like people are going to want to keep Rob around, considering he'll be a real asset in the challenges.

Of course, Redemption Island could be a huge factor in keeping someone around longer, so who knows.

I'm really looking forward to see how all this plays out.  I think you're right Rob is likely to stick around a lot longer than Russell.

Not that I've heard.  They're as fair game as anyone else, as far as I know.  Anyone that knows anything will likely try to get Russell out soon.  Although, he CAN be fairly persuasive and convincing.  It'll be interesting to see how long he stays.

The first episode is titled "You're Looking at the New Leader of You Tribe". Sounds like the kind of thing Jeff would say, when the Rob+Russell twist is revealed to the other castaways.
Also, I thought I heard something about Rob and Russell being immune until the merge, but I'm pretty sure it was made up. Jeff said that it's quite possible that Russell will get voted out first, and that he needs to find a way around that in order to cement his legacy as "the greatest of all time".
