Looks like they're really grasping at straws with this cast..
New pic of cast, can't wait for the Phillip craziness.
Row 1 Left to middle: Phillip, Malcolm, Corinne, Cochran, Franquesca/Francesqua/Francesca, Erik the ice cream give my idol away boy.
Row 2 Left to middle: Brenda, Preacher Hantz, Dawn, Andrea.
Rest are fans.

lol @ Phillip in his purple drawers again.
Malcolm back already? Survivor is getting stale.
Hope Cochran wins.
I'd say there is a severe lack of manly-ness on this upcoming season. Even Malcom, by all appearances should be a dominator, but we saw otherwise last season. It's will be hilarious to see lil 'Hantz propped up again as an Alpha. This season is going to be such a shit-show... lol, should be entertaining.
They need to do an "All Winners" Survivor. I'm sure not everyone would come back.. but 20 Survivor Winners against each other would make for a great season.
I truly don't quite understand why some of these people are being considered "favourites".
well, francesca is the only one who wasn't popular when she was on the show, so hers is the only inexplicable one - until you realize that she socialized her way into the ex-survivors in NYC inner circle, which is bffs with all the producers. but yeah having a 1st boot on FvF is laughable.
Corinne a favourite? wtf....
Go Cochran! Maybe if it doesn't work out on his "favourites" tribe, he can jump ship to the fans tribe, since he was originally a super fan. :>
Starts up Wednesday.. I am psyched. First one out? My vote is for the chick kneeling down with striped stockings.. or fat black pudgy bellied chick.
This is an American show. Enough with "favourites" you limey bitches.
Of course, when it comes to bringing back former female players, I think they have to scrape the bottom of the barrel anyways. Since at least 75% of the female players are chosen because of how they look in a bathing suit, there really aren't many memorable females that deserve to play again, which is why we end up with such unnotables as Brenda and Andrea.
Who was Corinne? I vaguely remember the name and that she was kind of hot, but that's all. If I thought about it a little, I would probably be enraged that they brought back Little Hantz. He sucked, and not in an entertaining way.
As far as Little Hantz goes, I think his Entertainment Weekly interview sums up about what we can expect from him. It is bizarre.
EW: Well, let’s talk about a tough Hantz man. Russell was pretty harsh about your previous performance, both during the season and at the live reunion. What’s your relationship like now?
BRANDON: Uhhhh…it actually was wonderful, until I got back together with my wife.
EW: Why is that?
BRANDON: Because when you’re lonely and sad, you want to be lonely and sad with someone else. And I’m being straight-up. I want him to see this. I want him to read this. Maybe it will hit him in his head. When something good happens for somebody and nothing good has happened for you, you get a little bit bitter. And I feel like that’s what it is right now. I feel like he’s very sad and hurt and it kinda sucks because we had a really good time together when I wasn’t with my wife, and I wanted that kind of relationship, even with my wife. So it shows that it’s an ulterior motive from him to obviously have me as a friend, as a companion. I’m just there to help his pain go away, which I didn’t do anything with him sexually so I don’t see how that is a problem.
The crazy runs deep in the favorites tribe with Phillip, Hantz, and Corinne (she was bat shit nuts on Gabon). Should be a very entertaining season if those three make it to merge.
If Francesca is the one I'm thinking of, she seemed to have a lot of promise, but then made a day one alliance with someone that turned out to be a nut job and got her voted out so maybe that's why they're giving her another chance.
What was the name of the FoH dude that got on? Is he on this season?
And Francesca yet again gets the ax first. It sucks, because I believe she has so much potential to be an entertaining figure but holy hell does she have shitty luck with that first tribal. Oh well as long as the subject of my man crush Malcom stays safe, I am happy. Not only that, but Hantz is looking to be no less crazy if the previews prove right. The fans seem to be pretty interesting too, so hopefully this will be a good season.
If Brandon turned gay this season it would be the best survivor ever.
I don't know how Francesca manages to scare everybody so quickly. She seems well spoken, smart, and likable and she starts right in on the strategizing and I guess that's all it takes to put paranoid people back on their heels.
I'm hoping for an early boot for Phil. I am tired of him after one episode.
Erik the ice cream scooper seems like just as big of a babe in the woods as he did on his first season.
Cochrane is being fairly entertaining so far by mocking himself.
I want to like the fat Marine but I don't know if I do.
The cool kids alliance are the biggest bunch of tards ever. How can you claim to be a fan of survivor and then have a big make out session on the first night in front of everybody? They all deserve to be the first boot way more than Francesca.
All in all it was a pretty good first episode. I love a good "kick each other's ass in water" challenge. Erik being like "oh my god" when the fat marine was coming after him was the highlight for me, with Cochrane taking on the girl while Francesca took the dude being a close second. That one dude on the fans tribe was apparently born to throw sand bags into holes. Malcom did kind of get shitty at the end but it was crazy how fast that guy got through that part.

Liked the first episode - lol at the 4 idiots butt fucking each other on the fans team. That little sunburnt nerd is my pick to win.
Calling it right now...Jeff brings the rock Francesca was holding to the reunion show and asks her to eat it.
Brandon definitely views any girl he's attracted to as a threat. The marine is going to rub people the wrong way for being a douche, but I still think the models get voted out first.
Seems like it could be a very good season just based off the first episode.
Francesca going first again gives me hope this season will be good. That's almost too crazy to not be scripted... but even with the editing she started the ball rolling with targeting Phillip which I think was a mistake. Was she really so confident in her place in the tribe to throw a name out at 5 others so quickly? Soon as she said "Phillip" to that group, I thought she was doomed.
Hope Phillip sticks around till the end again. His special version of crazy reminds me my favorite uncle who would do crazy shit just to see how people react. I also have to wonder if it was just editing, or did Phillip really pull a Boston Rob on Francesca? Say my name and you're next to go.
Cochran is so red it makes me hurt. Glad he's showing some guts with sticking it out. He's one of my favorites all time.
Seems like a mistake to be cool-kidding it up and then making out the first night, but they have 4. It isn't a case of just 2 people. 4 people just need 1 more to make things uncertain enough to sway the deciding vote into your 'cool' camp.
The Fans arriving at their camp developing into a fight about shelter vs food felt soooooooo forced... but maybe they're setting the Marine up to be a villain? Why else would they show him sitting around doing nothing while bitching about others working? Seems to me that situation is easy to find a compromise.
I was also really impressed with that structure they built for that first immunity challenge. We've got to be seeing that structure used again I think. That was 4 stories of sturdy awesomeness and couldn't have been quickly or cheaply constructed.
That was a very impressive structure.
I actually felt bad for Francesca but it's also kind of funny. She must molest retarded children or something for karma to smack her that hard again.
Phillip is full of win with his pink fruit-of-the-looms, his goofyass nicknames and being so socially unaware in general but im not looking forward to when the law of entropy takes its toll on his panties and they are showing his cock swinging around with a block-out thing that doesn't help enough.
Hantz hates the pretty women. Pure and simple - he despises them. I bet his marriage has interesting dynamics. The look of sheer orgiastic joy on his face when Andrea was getting nervous about her name on all those cards was telling. Bet that fucker has a rape-kit in the trunk of his car. It will be interesting to see who wins the "I'm crazier than a shithouse rat, so I get to ride to the end for free because no one will vote for me because ultimately i'm no threat" ticket. Probably Phil since he just vanquished a threat that Hantz was aligned with and the editing for next week's show makes it appear that Hantz doubles down on a rampage of crazy.
That marine douche intrigues me. I assume at this point that people who go on Survivor know the show pretty well and have seen most or all seasons and if so you must also know you cannot be that big of a cockstain and win. Yet every season there is at least one over the top Alpha that alienates him/herself right off the bat and though they usually don't get voted off first, they never win. Ever. Maybe they just edited him to seem like more of an ass than he really is. We'll see.
Cochran. I was a little surprised at first when his name didn't get tossed around at all for tribal. I like Cochran but I'm not sure what purpose he serves for a tribe and many times at the beginning weaker players get culled so you can stay strong to win challenges/rewards. I underestimated how quickly the Favs would begin working inter-political strategies and not worry about overall team strength.
The self-styled cool kids club might be fucked from the get-go if they really were as asinine as the editing made them seem. And the cuddling idiots making out/humping or whatever on the first night was fucking awesome. Survivor is great because people cannot control their egos, hormones, or crazy, not even for a better chance at a mil.
My underdog pick for this season: That little hottie Brenda.
Brenda wouldn't be an underdog, really. She dominated her season until she herped and derped her way to a blindside (that wasn't a blindside because she saw it coming, just actively decided to do fuck all about it). So anyway, I'd put Brenda in as one of the favorites to win it coming in.
If I had to make picks purely off of the 1st episode edit (screen time, foreshadowing, etc):
Cochran is either your winner or at least in the final 3.
Dawn goes far, probably paired with Cochran the whole way.
Brenda is fucking hot (probably goes far).
Malcolm, Andrea and Phillip are in trouble. Either gone pre-merge if they lose enough, or go quickly after the merge.
Corrine and Brandon are next to go.
Totally unsure on Erik. Maybe he flies under the radar until the merge.
No reads on the Fan's tribe yet outside of the villainous black man and the cool kids alliance going down in flames (both totally obvious).
Little Hantz did have some domestic violence issues in the past I believe. I think there was some stuff about that posted on FOH during his previous season. If I was a woman and had done some homework before coming on survivor I would be interested in getting that creep out sooner than later.
Amazing how people come back for a second or third time and still don't learn a damn thing about their previous experience.
Fans are dumb as ever, let's start cuddling day one so everyone knows we're in an alliance.
Shamar the lazy ex-military acting like it takes 10 people to start a fire.
Brandon going Hantz crazy next episode, just to try to and please his uncle maybe? Since Russell didn't like how he played the first time out.
Surprised Cochran didn't get voted out since he's turning into a lobster with the burns and swelling.
BR Rules.... LOL, I hope Philip gets to the end.
Talking about needing to "split the vote" on Day 1 = instant vote off. Are you stupid? Seriously.
And that "Cool Kid" on the fans team with the lisp.. I want to punch in his snaggletoothed mouth.
lol @ the dude with the speech impediment.
Finally watched this episode. Poor Franches-kwa. Phillip is fucking killing me. I hope he goes all the way to the end again.
maybe it's the white guy in me, but man that Brenda is hot. missed her and Andrea
Brandon Hantz, really is the looniest of the bunch. Philip is an awkward penguin, Brandon is certifiable. Don't worry he's doing God's work.
Is every "next time, on Survivor" going to feature Brandon wanting to kill people? Until he's voted out, I mean.
Lol@ Brandon acting like a tough crazy guy to the camera, then Phil, in his pink undies, tells Brandon how shit is going to be and Brandon runs back to camp crying like a bitch. That was fucking great.
Lazy Black Shrek absolutely owned the shit out of Prettyboy McStupidass. That attempt at calling Shrekamar out just seemed lame and smacked of desperation.
Allie being voted off was right and proper - no surprises there.
Yeah, the "Next week on Survivor!" stuff is usually horseshit. I don't trust it at all to be meaningful.
I loved Cochran's assessment to the camera that Brandon reminds him of a sociopath. You know you're cuckoo when even Phil thinks you're nuts.
Yeah, how Phillip defined "narcist" or whatever word he made up for Brandon was sociopath. So two people called you a sociopath within 5 minutes...think he'll take a hint?
Nah, sociopaths probably don't take hints. They know for a fact that they're always right and are too busy winning Charlie Sheen style. Except instead of Tiger's blood coursing through his veins, he has UncleFucker blood in his!
Glad they did the smart vote and broke up the dipshit most obvious couples ever alliance. You dumb, pretty bastards.
I hope Brandon and Phillip stick around, we might get the first Survivor murder!
The blonde lady that organized the alliance of six on the fans team is off to a good start. She has the fat Marine to draw all the fire and she's calling the shots while no one is paying any attention to her at all. Better yet, she has a big enough lead now that she can sacrifice the fat Marine whenever she needs to if he gets to bothering people too much. Hopefully that Reynold dude goes next, he's a douche and his name is stupid.
Little Hantz is a fucking cartoon. He has to be just playing to the camera. Either that or he really is a sociopath.
Watching Dawn crying really brought home what a pack of misfits this favorites team is. There's a few decent people like Malcom and Brenda, but they are surrounded by a pack of complete social outcasts. I kind of feel like the fans have the advantage at this point.

Good observation about that blonde chick that was strapping the harness on Shrekamar.
Dawn is like that though. She will get all emotional over something silly (lol crying because you and Hantz don't see eye to eye?) and have a nice long cry but then she seems to come back strong and do well until her next mini-breakdown. Seems to just be her process.
The marine cracked me up a few times this episode. Hoping he goes far. Him and Phillip or Hantz post merge could be pretty epic.
The marine is a lazy baby. He's perfect to bring to the end with you. With him and Phil at the final tribal, it's a sure-fire win if you're the 3rd(assuming it's 3 at the end).
Little Hantz is a real sociopath, I think. The best part is he has more than one kid. Nothing like being fucked from the get-go. Poor kids.
Apparently the fat Marine is not new to yelling at people. Here he is yelling at cops at Occupy Wall Street.
"If you want to fight, go to Iraq or Afghanistan"- he has a point...
I was happy to see that the cool kids alliance got targeted and broken up before they had any real chance to run the show. These morons... to be a "fan" and make such a blatant mistake really has me questioning their casting process once again.
I think Shemar, the marine, is playing the lazy asshole as part of his strategy. He knows he can be used as a pawn to the merge, then as a swing vote after the merge. Every year, there is someone that nobody views as a threat that hangs around till the end and gets no votes. It's not a winning strategy, but it will get him a lot of camera time and maybe that is all he wants.
For the Fans team, I like the hippy biker dude and the gay guy alliance, but not so sure about the women they have also hitched their wagon to. On the favorites, I think ice cream scooper Erik has said all the right things so far and he is worth rooting for, although he looks like a man without an alliance. Oh and of course Special Agent Phillip is gold for the comedy. Let's hope he runs the table all the way to the end again.
Lil Hantz should never have been allowed back in the United States after the filming concluded. I think we have seen all the evidence we need that this guy is a danger to society. Nothing good can come of him being a free citizen in our country.
I can't stand the doughboy Shamar.
He will grate on his alliance nerves and they will vote him out.
I can't think of a single person on survivor i have hated more than Shamar.
He's a real douche. Anyone who's a combat vet who starts off by saying "I really saw some shit" is probably full of it. I feel bad for Marines because he's making them look even more retarded than they actually are (I kid...sorta).
I love these people like Shamar who get on Survivor, cannot co-exist for an hour with strangers without going apeshit in the first few days, scream at everyone, use the show as a talk therapy platform to spooge out all of your personal demon info about being an alcoholic, all the crazy shit you've done/seen etc. and yet be a part of an alliance and stick around. Funny shit!
That said, boring episode. Was hoping the Fans would win the challenge to avoid seeing Hope auto-leave, and get to see some craziness withthe Favs tribe. Now im just hoping that Fans tribe will stop tailspinning, or we will just have another situation where when the merger happens, we'll have to sit through tedious episodes where we know there's a tribe within a tribe and we watch the weaker tribe go home one by one.
Whatever happened to Redemption Island btw? Was that deemed a flop never to be done again? (I confess, I liked it well enough as something different)
Not sure how savvy that was for Malcolm to hitch his wagon that tightly to Corrine.
I would think even the army would be embarrassed to have someone like Shamar represent them at this point. Yeah his strategy is to not be seen as a big threat, which btw mostly works for the women, certainly not going to work when you're acting like a fat lazy child sleeping most of the day off from day one, and then after tribal have to go off on everyone, repeating shit over and over and over again, look at he video, over and over and over again.
Preacher Hantz is fucking jekyl and hyde, "people going to vote me off then I'm going to pee in the rice! yeah yeah I have my uncle flowing through me now!" then next day, "shit yo I'm sorry I'm going to be peaceful yo, I'm the honey badger." Then Andrea comes to talk to him all the while I'm thinking here we go again, "I can't trust her, the temptation is too great! it's crazy time!"
Seems like they want to avoid another dull season from now on so they invite a couple unbalanced idiots to keep things interesting. I'll be glad when they get rid of those two and finally focus on the people who are actually going to win the game. Also that vote tonight confused me, I must have missed something but I thought they were splitting the votes so they could snuff the idol out, why the hell did they vote for eddie...
I've no love for Shamar, but I don't hate him. He at least has some lucid moments where he seems self-aware of his bad traits, admitting his problem with alcohol, his anger issues, and even calling himself out for being "the angry black man". This keeps him far from the worst in my book.
Colton is a good observation for the worst. Very wormy, pathetic, and ironically judgemental, all the while managing to be so perfectly pleased with himself the entire time. I think my least favorite of all time was Naonka (sp).
Yeah, no one comes close to Colton. The guy was by far the most disgusting human being on the show.
Shamar is just extremely disappointing and embarrassing.
Yeah, Colton was a real piece of shit. Shamar is just a giant fucking baby. Holy sandy vagina....
Phillip is TV gold. His interview this week about him being Michael Jordan, or some shit, was fucking hilarious. Man I hope this guy figures out some way to stay to the end.
The eye candy factor dropped off the cliff in the last two weeks. Brenda is the only thing worth looking at now for the rest of the season. Andrea isn't ugly, but there is something really fucked up about her eyes and it creeps me out.
What else is new? First rule of survivor: get rid of all black people. Second rule of survivor: get rid of all hot bitches. Bonus points if you can do both at once.
Yeah Redemption Island utterly destroyed the finality of tribal council. Hate hate hate hated it.
The show needs more Philip. He's cracking me up. I hope there are cataclysmic fireworks in the future with Brandon vs Phillip.
Sherri is my early favorite. She is playing Shamar and her tribe like a fiddle. I can't imagine a scenario where she's gone before the merge. She has at least 3 pawns (the last two guys in the cool kids club, and Shamar) to sacrifice.
I think the challenges this season have been absolutely brutal too. I'm glad to see more water challenges, particularly ones that don't allow a single fast swimmer to dominate like Ozzy in the past. They've all had pretty elaborate structures and I know I'd be dead before ever getting halfway thru any of them.
I find it hard to believe Shamar is a survivor fan, or if he is, the requirements to be called a "fan" are extremely low. His act that he didn't think Survivor would be this way is ludicrous if he's ever seen the show. Phillip is the best.
I'm sure it's harder than it seems on TV, but Shamar was surprised that people were basically competing, scheming and possibly lying. Yeah, he's obviously never even watched the show.
Oh yeah you're right. I think I was listening to him bitch and chalking it up to exhaustion and hunger.
So, Shamar's goggle thing brought up something that's been bugging me for awhile. They get to wear contacts? So, do they have a little area with disinfectant and saline and stuff or are they allowed to bring enough daily ones for the duration of the show? That's kinda retarded, but I guess they don't want all their "pretty people" wearing glasses.
Uh, they give the chicks razors and hand out condoms too. They're not really stranded.
No shit, but having access to contact supplies is a little different than handing out rubbers.
I thought some girls got razors on some reward once, but didn't realize it was a regular thing. Do they give out sunscreen, too?
I think a minimum of certain supplies probably makes for better television. Contacts instead of glasses, tampons/pads instead of yeck... with someone med evacing out about once every other season, I'd think they'd supply them with some off screen care like wound care ointments/liquids and laxatives. Now that I think of it, didn't they give Boston Rob bottled water during his Fans and Favorites season when he passed out? The tribe had fire, which meant water, but it's still no hardcore survival.
Every single person that goes on Survivor comes back from the show saying they didn't realize just how difficult it would be. Yet, people on the internet, all they can bitch about is how easy it is (or it has become). I am in the boat of saying that I don't think a lot of the hardships translate to TV.
Sure, there have been some years, where they seem to be getting much more food than other seasons, but I don't think it is something where you can appreciate both the mental and physical strain until you actually do it. Even the best player ever, Boston Rob, had a mental break down out there and almost removed himself from the game.
Thank god they give the women razors and a minimum amount of hygiene products. This is a TV show, for entertainment. Not some social experiment with the hippies from your college psych class. All that Survivor needs to provide is a level playing field and the most entertaining people they can find.
Afaik the women don't have razors. I remember Parvati saying after Heroes vs Villains how she had gotten laser hair removal everywhere before going on the show because she absolutely hated how hairy the women got. Maybe it has changed since then, but even a couple seasons ago I noticed hairy armpits.
Glasses or contacts aren't really a luxury item like a razor, so I don't really see any issue with allowing them. I'm sure they allow prescription drugs as well, like blood pressure meds, etc.
Question: Do the contestants have access to anything else that we donít see on camera?
Answer: Yes. According to Jeff Probst, the women receive tampons, and all of the contestants have access to condoms in case they want to get hot-and-heavy in the hut during filming. In addition, according to the article, they are given vital medications, contact lens solution, sunscreen, and insect repellent.
I agree with what you're saying though. Being exposed to the elements 24/7 for up to 39 days is rough. Then throw in a severe lack of sleep, calories and the fact that there is a game for a million dollars going on at the same time. It takes as much of a mental adjustment as a physical adjustment, and that's why returning players have such a huge advantage in the game. They're more prepared mentally by a long shot, and they usually come into their 2nd (or 3rd, or 4th) seasons much heavier than their first. See Penner last season or Boston Rob in s20 or 22.

actually, adam, it was a diagnosed case of Crybabyitis.
I think that they have relaxed the food shortages since they had 3 or 4 seasons where people quit and fucked up the show. That's not to say that it's not stressful and physically challenging, but it used to be worse.
The lack of food had nothing to do with the mass exiles. Na'Onka and Purple Kelly had as many hot dogs and theater food as they could eat the night before they quit. Casting failures trumps shitty conditions. Saying "it used to be worse" is subjective. On season 1 they had fucking tents, rice and beans, a shitload of comfort items (guitars and shit), and had fishing equipment from day 1. Season 2 was bad due to the lack of anything to forage at all, and Jeff ended up having to go to camp to give them bags of rice. From there until all-stars, the tribes all had plenty of rice to eat on top of whatever they could fish/forage.
My point is that you're misremembering shit. So far in this season they haven't gotten anything above what any other season has gotten, and in some cases less.
I imagine Penner is just the type of person who as long as he gets his calories can be satisified. But a lot of the contestants seem like the type who would gorge on donuts if they could. So they bitch about rice and beans because it's not what they want. Then when they get a food reward go apeshit. Not because they're necessarily starving, but because it's a comfort food.
Shrekamar passed up a golden opportunity to go down in history as an extreme survivor badass. When Jeff asked him if he wanted to try and continue on or go home, he should have looked up and said, "Well, shiver me timbers and pieces o' eight! Get me an eye patch, arrrrhh matey!" That tribe is royally fucked.
The last two weeks, they've shown previews of Hantz Jr that I don't think were actually on the show. The one for next week though, holy shit...motherfucker is crazy.
Also, Shamar is such a little bitch. Fuck that dude.
I have to hand it to Phillip, he is doing a pretty nice Boston Rob impression in his own weird way. I don't get the feeling that any of the favorites are really scheming although that can change with a couple of lost challenges. It looks like little Hantz is going to go full retard next week which should make things very easy if the favorites go to TC and real awkward if they don't.
Shamar played like a bitch and then went out like a bitch. So much for the Marines...Semper Cry. Hell of a tough break for the fans.
This immunity challenge has been used before, but it's a great one. I still don't like Reynold, but he seems to be a prodigy at throwing stuff at other stuff.
Looks like Reynold and Eddie may have a clean slate since their tribe opted for strength over loyalty. Could be too little too late though unless they run the table on some challenges. If not, the Sandra Bullock-doppleganger Shrekamar whisperer will be next to go I guess.
Yeah, they've alluded to some Hantz shennanigans before that never actually materialized, but that was pretty clear that he went apeshit and started trashing camp supplies. Will be interesting to see what set that fuckhead off. Maybe a pretty girl inadvertently touched his weiner.
Lol @ that blonde girl who was like, "everyone gets a Phil nickanme but meeee! Hurrrumph!"
Holy mother of god, has there ever been anyone so pathetically lazy as Shamar on before? That dude was a sad sack of shit.
I hope the Psycho-Hantz stuff isn't because of an immunity loss, just so we can see him go even more crazy.
Shamar really changes the whole view of his video where he yells at cops. At first you're like, fuck yeah marines! and now you're like, oh this is just a whiny fucking cunt. good riddance, dickwad.
hoping fans starts fresh and begins to challenge the fans. my god there are some nice asses out there this season
next week looks epic
I think the fans are in pretty bad shape now. You gotta know that some type of merge/tribe shake up is in the works very soon, and the majority alliance lost two members in one episode, meaning they will be a lot more fractured going into a merge/shake up. Reynolds and Eddie will be flippers for sure, and you will have two physically stronger players that you could of gotten rid of, going into the second half of the game when individual immunity is up for grabs.
'Survivor: Caramoan': Jeff Probst reveals that was not the first time he visited Shamar at the Fans camp
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: You’ve had people that have been seriously hurt and needed to be evacuated from the game, and others that maybe used not feeling well as an excuse to leave a game they were no longer prepared to play. Obviously Shamar’s eye injury ended up being serious enough that medical recommend he be pulled, but given his previous inclination towards quitting, when you were on your way out to the tribe camp, did you think maybe it was a case of someone looking for a way out?
JEFF PROBST: Being completely honest, yes. It went through my head because I had already visited Shamar a few days earlier (which we didn’t air) and he really seemed to want to go home, but his tribe talked him into staying. So when I got the call that he needed to see medical I was already speculating about the situation. But when I arrived it was clear his eye was injured, and when it comes to vision, you can’t take any risks. The call from the doctors to pull him from the game was an easy one to make. Whether he was secretly relieved, only he truly knows.
EW: Looks like Hantz side is coming out again soon. What can you tell us about what to expect with next week’s explosion?
PROBST: Hang on, a storm is coming. Don’t DVR. People will be talking. In a word — historic.
the nephew has no idea what is means to pull a 'hantz' - he thinks it means just being hated, but people hated Russell because of his confidence AND because they couldn't send him home when they wanted to. In his case it seems like they'll be able to vote him out fairly easily, but if they're smart, they'll talk him to the final 3
Well Shamar's exit, while welcome in many ways, marks the end of my hopes for TV gold of pitting him, Hantz, and Phillip against each other. While it would be a given in my books to take someone like Hantz to the end, he may just be too over the top for anyone to even be able to stand him for that long.
Hantz is no ordinary "unlikable person that gets kept until the end". He is mentally unstable and not controllable. He is paranoid of everyone and would turn on anyone just because of the stories he makes up in his head. He cannot and does not stick to plans for more than a few minutes at a time. I'll be amazed if he goes to the final 3 for this reason.
Yeah, being in an alliance with that guy would be a nightmare. Whatever the plan was, you would have to know that there is at least a 50% chance that he will blab it or go against it or fuck it up in some other random way. Also, if he's dumping your rice on the ground that is actually increasing the misery and reducing the chances of winning of everyone on the tribe. Has there ever been an honest to goodness fight on Survivor where somebody got fucked up? I suppose they would intervene and/or threaten to kick you out of the show for it to keep it under control but dumping out the tribe's rice supply is grounds for a serious ass beating if I've ever heard one.
Yeah, the biggest difference between Rustle and Brandon is that Brandon is a fucking insane retard. Russel was a smart, savvy Survivor player who also happened to be an asshole to people outside of his alliance (and sometimes within it in order to keep people in check). Russel created big moments, Brandon creates retard drama.
It was all the religion shit, coach played it really well, it was god's will to vote him out.
an understated ensemble that puts the "b" in subtle
I'm going to go out on a limb and say Shamar's company in the Marines probably hated him as much as his Survivor teammates. What a lazy whiny fuck. And his yelling at everyone who was barking at him was just so stereotypical. They were right. What a lazy POS. Especially for a Marine.
I was in the Army with a guy similar to him. He wasn't lazy, but his confrontational attitude was identical. Plus, he was a bald, black guy (not fat as shit though). You could get along with him most of the time, but then he'd just be an asshat. Good soldier otherwise though.
Oh my god. The second I saw the cast of this season and Brandon and Phillip were coming back, I knew there was potential, and tonight definitely did not disappoint. With that said, after tonight I have a whole new level of respect for coach and his social skills.
This is BY FAR the most hilarious episode of Survivor ever.
