[QUOTE=RockSteadyVybes;153031] Exile Island has been pretty good...weird that they can play the hidden immunity idol AFTER the votes have been read. Is this the only season that is set like that?? I'm almost finished with this and I know who wins....and I'm not happy about it. Don't really like the guy.[/QUOTE] Yeah, I didn't really like the way that was set up either. It made the idol a very expensive bargaining chip and a huge risk to vote for that person. I kind of like how now you have to throw it out before the votes are read, it makes it more risky...but I also think that telling people (even in your alliance) is a bad idea, because word always seems to spread and then people want to flush the idol out as soon as possible. It just puts a target on your back. Back during Cook and Exile, it took it straight off.
I think they changed it after seeing how much power it gave Yul. They probably would have changed it after Exile, if Terry realized he could have thrown one of the immunity challenges and used the idol to his advantage.

Terry is really ruining this season for me. Meh. So after this one I think Cooks and Fiji are the only ones I haven't seen.
Cook Islands and Fiji are the worst seasons. I actually kind of like Exile Island. Its the on more recent reason (and its hardly recent) with some decent characters having all Shane, Courtney, Cirie, and Terry. Its really a shame of all people Danielle got to come back from this season over Courtney, Shane, and Terry! I am really fed up with the hidden idol. I think they have gotten played out. I wouldnt mind if there was one a reason (kind of like Gary in Season 11), but having so manny is annoying. IMO.

I thought "aw how cute, he celebrated after winning" until he did it every single time. Then the "YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH!!!" was really obnoxious. I wouldn't waste your time with Fiji. Awful season. I actually really liked Cook Islands, but I think it was more the people that I liked rather than the actual season. I mean Parvati, Ozzy, Penner...and Billy, of course. The division by race was interesting and I did like how diverse the final 4 was. [QUOTE=asamber1;153140]Cook Islands and Fiji are the worst seasons. I actually kind of like Exile Island.

And total agreement on having Danielle back. I'm kind of fed up with the idol too. It's like as soon as word gets out that someone has it, the immediate thought is to flush it out. And rehiding it kind of sucks too because it potentially gives someone a lot of chances.
[QUOTE=RockSteadyVybes;153134]Yeah...when he was hurting for numbers he should've thrown a challenge, let them vote for him and then had his pick of who to knock off. [/QUOTE]I agree, but if he had used up his idol before the final 4, he would have taken 4th place since he lost that immunity challenge. Granted, he lost it to Aras who he probably would have knocked out with the idol if he had the chance, but it would have exposed him to too much liability. I'm tired of the idol thing too. We had ten seasons without it, and now after HVV, we will have had ten seasons with it. It's time for them to get creative and try something new for the next era of the show.

[QUOTE=molds13;153214][/QUOTE] Awesome! I can't waaaait for new Survivor eps!
Well color me surprised. [url=http://sports.espn.go.com/oly/news/story?id=4870099]2004 Olympic gold-medalists Crystal Cox accepts doping punishment - ESPN[/url]
An article about 'Surviving Survivor', taking place next Thursday: [URL="http://www.examiner.com/x-4819-Cable-TV-Examiner%7Ey2010m1d29-Surviving-Survivor-relives-memorable-moments-with-castaways"]Surviving Survivor relives memorable moments with castaways[/URL] It talks about who's going to appear. I was pretty surprised to see that Elisabeth Hasselbeck is going to be a part of it.
I am so confused on that article, they list 13 people at first, and then list all of them again aside from Colby, Rupert and Elisabeth, and say they will be doing interviews? As for Crystal, no wonder she sucked at challenges.
Okay, here's the CBS press release, which is a little less confusing. [B]RELIVE SOME OF "SURVIVOR'S" MOST MEMORABLE MOMENTS WITH THE CASTAWAYS WHO LIVED THEM ON THE ONE-HOUR SPECIAL, "SURVIVING SURVIVOR," THURSDAY, FEB. 4 [/B][CENTER][B]Richard Hatch, Russell Hantz, Colby Donaldson and Parvati Shallow Are Among the Show's Castaways Breaking Down Every Aspect of the Game [/B][/CENTER] SURVIVING SURVIVOR brings back 10 of the game's most iconic players to talk about the reality juggernaut that defined a genre in this new one-hour special to be broadcast [U]Thursday, Feb. 4[/U] (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Through a series of new interviews, the curtain will be pulled back on one of the decade's most influential shows. Featured in the special are new revelations from SURVIVOR host Jeff Probst, season one winner Richard Hatch (Borneo, All-Stars) and HEROES VS. VILLAINS cast members James Clement (China, Micronesia), Colby Donaldson (Australia, All-Stars), Cirie Fields (Panama, Micronesia), Russell Hantz (Samoa), Stephenie LaGrossa (Palau, Guatemala), Jerri Manthey (Australia, All-Stars), Parvati Shallow (Cook Islands, Micronesia), Benjamin "Coach" Wade (Tocantins) and Tom Westman (Palau). "SURVIVOR changed the nature of television as we know it. For the first time, we were able to witness human behavior responding to stress and extreme conditions on television before our eyes," says executive producer Susan Zirinsky. "Seeing how clever individuals manipulate situations to achieve an outcome they want is really the most incredible social science experiment ever!" The special will also feature updates on some of the show's most beloved castaways, including the touching love story between winners Ethan Zohn (Africa, All-Stars) and Jenna Morasca (Amazon, All-Stars), America's Tribal Council winner Rupert Boneham (Pearl Islands, All-Stars), Cook Islands winner Yul Kwon and "The View" co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck (Australia). SURVIVING SURVIVOR is executive produced by Susan Zirinsky for Eye2 Productions. ------------ I think that since they got both Tom and Stephenie to be on, they will do a Jenn Lyon tribute.
I find it interesting that they have Yul, who's been nowhere near Survivor since his season (except the winners special). I also think it's funny that they don't look at the other love stories...Rob and Amber, Jaime and Erik...I think that's it. Although I guess Jenna and Ethan's is the most "touching".
Rob & Amber can probably included in the look back on moments from the show, since that's where their's actually occurred. Jenna and Ethan's relationship wasn't on the show. I don't know...that's my guess?

I'm just surprised they got Elisabeth to co host the whole ordeal. Never thought she would be nere survivor agian.
Here's a promo for Thursday's special... [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bprE34ZtPgs]YouTube - Surviving Survivor Special - PIP Sports Promo[/url]
Why the heck is Russel doing that special he was on the last season what else do we want to hear from him!
Who was the last person they showed? They cut away real quick and I couldn't tell who it was...
[QUOTE=Lamb Chop!!!;153523]Who was the last person they showed? They cut away real quick and I couldn't tell who it was...[/QUOTE] Stephenie.
I just saw one of the previews for this Surviving Survivor thing they've got on tonight... Rich. Steph. Rupert. Cirie. Tom. James. Parvati. Ethan. Amanda. Russell. I get them. I understand how each of them could be, in one way or another, considered the "greatest players ever". But...Coach? How is he on that list? How is he even close to it? I understand that he is one of the most memorable characters, but in my opinion he is far from being considered a great player.
hahah did you hear what Jeff said about coach... He said Everybody hated coach but he did absolutely nothing!" so true, he was just a funny guy and Jeff also said "Can he win...No" hahaha that was just funny. I happened to really like Coach!
The "dragonslayer" is hillarious, if I was one of the contestants he would have to be in the alliance because I would be pretty certain that I could beat him if it was a jury vote.
I really enjoyed the clip about Ethan.
[QUOTE=Bacchus;154372]I really enjoyed the clip about Ethan.[/QUOTE] I did too! It was great to see him doing well.
