Survivor: Blood vs. Water II (San Juan del Sur) - Spoilers

Filming begins today, and according to this [URL="https://soundcloud.com/siriusxmentertainment/survivor-contestants-drop-o..."]interview with Jeff Probst[/URL], one pair has already been pulled from the game for medical reasons. The same situation occurred with the first Blood vs Water when RC's dad Craig was deemed medically unfit due to hypertension and they were replaced by Candice and John. This time, however, there is not an alternate team ready and the season will have only 9 pairs and a gender imbalance.

Serious?

That kinda sucks. I wonder why they wwouldn't have an alternate team in place?

Sucks, hope the situation wasn't serious though :'(

Anyways I was thinking about this and wouldn't it be interesting if say, they didn't know who was related to who?

Well that sucks and dumb of them not to have an alternate. Hopefully it wasn't a father/son pair or father/daughter pair. We haven't seen that combo yet.

There was a somewhat similar situation in Fiji when a contestant had a panic attack hours before the game began and withdrew, leaving them with only 19 players. Who knows why they didn't bring a new pair in, I guess it isn't a big deal though. 18 players means there likely will not be a 2 person elimination right off the bat, and that we might get 2 person Duels instead of the "Truels" from last season.

I doubt it was anything major. Probably another high blood pressure situation or something to that extent.

Jeff said that just by looking at the cast, you likely could accurately guess about 70% of the pairs. Some of them should be able to hide it if they try, but eventually I think the cast will piece together the pairings. We'll see what happens though.

Eh or a F2 again :)

Father/daughter is in the clear, we know it was a same sex pair that was pulled.

That would be lovely

So its 10 women and 8 guys. Okay I'm fine with that. Maybe a women will finally win a again. Its been 3 seasons lol

Plus with them probably dividing teams the same way as last I don't think it will matter much.

It could be 8 women and 10 men, nothing definitive yet.

As with all spoilers, take with a grain of salt as nothing is official until the end of August when the cast is officially announced by CBS.

Alec & Drew Christy - Brothers from Winter Park, FL

[ATTACH]4940[/ATTACH]

Drew (on the right) was apparently a finalist for Cagayan, since he is a model, he was likely just another recruit that's never watched an episode (he reminds me of Reynold for some reason). Alec seems more interesting, he's a lacrosse player, and according to his instagram is very outdoorsy, doing a lot of fishing and such. If he puts those skills to use in-game, I'm sure he'll be an asset to his tribe.

Here's the one I know several of you are excited about:

Are you serious you'll skip a whole season because of 2 people?! At least watch it and then if you don't like it stop watching it.

If you watched amazing race you'd know exactly why

I'm considering it. However, they'd just complain the entire time and they wouldn't make it far.

I'm not expecting either to make it to the merge, so I'm not too concerned right now.

I do.

They could act different since the conditions are obviously different from amazing race. For example, I found Hayden really annoying on Big Brother but thought he was awesome on survivor and rooted for him. It's a chance that they may be better. But I agree with the rest that they would most likely not make the merge.

We could start a new drinking game- everytime we hear the word "Twinnie!" take a shot

But they could win duels even if they get voted out so they could make the merge

Don't tell Bacchus this, because I know he'd partake ;)

I am so upset that there's a possibility of 10:8 Boys to girls ratio.
Girls havnt won in 3 Seasons.
Now if it's likewise where there are more girls.... Now that's a Different story! #TeamGirls

I honestly do not have a problem with more boys. I'd prefer a female to dominate, but the past few female winners have been so disappointing to me.

More power to the girls if they can pull out the win this season with a small disadvantage.

Really? That's interesting since Kim and Denise are pretty well-liked as deserving winners. I thought Trish or Tasha would have made good winners for Cagayan, too.

Anyway, does this mean two-person duels with a smaller cast and there will likely not be an immediate vote-off?

Tasha yes, Trish hell no

Her only true fault was trusting Tony too much, but exit interviews with the cast, along with her gameplay displays how good she played. This isn't about Cagayan though.

Beat me to it!

I honestly haven't the slightest idea what else they could use the arena for, but I hope it is worthwhile.

yeah, me too. At least they are trying some new twist, so excited about no redemption island.

I actually liked RI on BVW. Of course they would axe it, lol.

I liked it premerge but then after merge it became kinda dull again.
