Anyone reading the EW interview pages from past players? 

Everyone I read wants to return but yet we get and same boring people. Craziness.

Names?

Frosti and Sherea from China, Gina from Marquesas, Ken from Gabon, Gretchen from Borneo etc

Theres the list (Hopefully)

Serious question here. I just finished season 8 All Stars and I don’t understand. They all admitted that they saw every season. And yet they all followed Rob to their downfall. He screwed over every single person on his own season and yet they all chose him as the person they would trust with their life. And stuck with him, knowing that he was only loyal to Amber. What a disappointment. I would have thought All Stars would have been smarter than that. Am I wrong?

It wasn't shown in the edit but the entire season was basically set up by a pre game alliance between Rob, Kathy, Big Tom and Lex. Rob was the only one not loyal too it and was able to take advantage of all the other players throwing their games away for him

But that’s kind of my point. After watching how slimy he was on his season, he is the last person I would have trusted. I am so disappointed in these people for not only trusting someone who obviously could not be trusted but also acting surprised that he betrayed them. Some of my favorite players proved that they had no common sense. Ugh!!! I guess I will have to look for some new favorites in the post All Stars seasons. Moving on to season nine....

You have to trust someone which is pretty much impossible in Survivor. I dont have a huge issue with people trusting in Rob during that season. Especially with the preseason alliance 

A season involving Exile Island, Redemption Island, EOE and an Island of two past winners like Island of the Idols. Biggrin

Oh God that may be the worst season possible

Add Three Super Idols, One World and Blood Vs Water as well with a cast of 20 set in Cambodia during the heat wave Biggrin lol

Heard about people wanting this Natalie on The Challenge and watched the 29th season (San Juan whatever) and I hope we see her on The Challenge. I need watch this Winners at War. Haven't fully watched Survivor since Outback in 2000/2001

Lower your expectations  Smile

I wonder what would happen if Survivor China was a final two I feel like Todd would have been 3rd place if he didn't win Immunity.

Ehhh....still not convinced he still isn't in the final even if he doesn't win.  Especially if Amanda won but I might need to rewatch to answer that.

Ok. I have to ask. How do you guys stand it? I am just about to finish season five in Thailand and I can’t stand it!! How do you get through a season where there is literally no one that you want to see win a million dollars. It’s unbearable to watch these slimy people and know that one of them walked away with the money!! I am so tempted to just give up on this season and move on to season six!!

so seriously, do any of you ever feel that way about a season? How do you stand it? Maybe this is why I have always avoided these shows where it is decided by a vote. I just want them to say screw it. None of the people left deserve the money. Let’s start all over. LOL Even Jeff Probst seems disgusted with how this season played out!! UGH!!!  Please tell me that season six will be better :/

I watched Thailand at 1.3x speed. sometimes 1.4x

LOL! Someone did tell me that seasons six and seven would be better. And they were. I have currently made it up to three quarters of the way through Cook Islands and they have all been better than Thailand (albeit by varying degrees)! I have to say, I now understand why everyone gets addicted to this show!!!  :-)

What's your season ranking thus far? And favourite players?

Favorite Guys so far:

Ozzy, Bobby Jon, Terry, Hatch and of course, Gary Hogeboom since we are both from and live in the same town!!

Females are fewer since so many of them just skate and use flirting and I find that weak but: Kathy is my number one and even the cast said she should have won. And I do like Stephanie even though I liked her better on Palau than I did on Guatemala. I do like Danni as well but those are the only three that stand out for me so far.

Seasons it’s hard to say. I am currently loving Cook Islands and I also enjoyed Palau a lot. I have basically enjoyed most of them except Thailand. Hated Thailand!! What are yours? Am I forgetting anything or anyone major? I have been binge watching from the start so I feel like I am getting too much of it in a blur!! LOL

From the first 13 I'd say my favourite seasons would be Amazon, Pearl Islands & I really like Cook Islands, mostly because I watched it several years ago when Ozzy was my favourite player. That doesn't seem to be a popular opinion though I think a lot of people weren't fans of the race twist. Australian Outback & Borneo were also great starts to the series with great casts when I look back now

Rob Cesternino is probably my favourite old school player, as well as Hatch, Colby, Jerri & Boston Rob, plus Yul, Ozzy & Parv from Cook Islands are all favourites of mine. I can agree there weren't a ton of great old school females, even all stars had quite a few females that aren't really aren't that memorable. I remember absolutely hating Terry when I first watched Panama, I was rooting for Shane & his alliance and Terry just wouldn't go away lmao, respect the hell out of him now though of course

Absolutely Pearl Islands and Cook Islands. And how could I forget Rupert? Loved him. From Australia, my ultimate favorite was Michael and I think he would have gone really far if he hadn’t burned his hands. But I liked Colby as well. Africa was pretty good too and I picked Ethan as someone to root for day one so I was happy with that!! So far, Ozzy is my absolute favorite with Bobby Jon running second. As for Terry, I was rooting for him so I was happy that he hung in there so long. Any favorite seasons of yours coming up for me that I should watch for?

Just an FYI about Michael, he was arrested for child **** a few years back, as well as his role in some sort of ponzi scheme.

Season 14 is okay but 15-20 is one of the best stretches this show has had IMO, China is maybe my favourite newbie season ever and definetly top 5 along with Micronesia. Gabon & Tocantins were both unique with great locations and casts. And 20 is probably still my favourite season

Wow!!! Did not know that about Michael. How sad. And now I am looking forward to seasons 15-20. Thank you!!

On a side note, ******!!! I still haven't finished Cook Islands but just watched the tribal council to get down to the final three and watching everyone fall asleep waiting for Sundra and Becky to try and get a fire started has got to be one of the funniest things ever!! Even when they gave them both matches after they struggled for an hour, they still took more than 30 minutes and Sundra ran out of matches!! I am dying!!!!

ROFL

Just wondering how many years it takes to get to the end of Survivor Fiji? What a snooze fest!! Especially coming after such a good season as Cook Islands. Please tell me that it isn’t all down hill from here!! Sigh

After that season it gets better. That was a one off season in that era.

Yeah I never even finished Fiji

I read that Gary was the only person on Fiji that actually applied to be on the show. Everyone else was recruited.

Really? Who would recruit those people? All of them were either unlikable or boring as hell!! I hope they fired that recruiter.
