Did anyone know that Adam for Cook Islands is engaged to Erika from Big Brother?
Hey so is there any truth to this? someone posted this on Tracy's fb - "good luck in survivor second chances tracy. ftw!"
Filming is still a long ways off. Second chances is the rumor but I don't think anything we hear is anywhere near concrete. Casting is probably working on the new people for S21 right now, and will get to calling the repeats later in the spring.
I dont mean by being back stabbed or blindsided in the votes, but as far as twists in the game who was the most screwed over?? First thought to me would be Aaron from China- he very well could have gone to the final four with his alliance with Todd and Amanda.
I would say Erik from Samoa. He had no clue that he would be the first jury member. He thought every1 was voting for Russell I believe.
I don't remember her name, but it was one of the Asian girls in Fiji. They had a challenge after the merge, but the castaways were split into two teams. The losing team had to go to tribal, and that girl was on a team with people who were all in an alliance together. How much does that suck?
YES its Michelle from Fiji prob the most royally ****ed over contestant ever! She totally deserves a Second Chance. She deserved a second chance so much it still boggles my mind how Amanda and Parv got on FvF over her! But please lets not fill a Second chance season with people like Aaron and Erik aka boring Mactors.
I really don't think we'll be seeing a second chance season...
Silas deserves a second chance because before him noone had ever been screwed by a twist or ever even heard of a twist in a reality show so he was the most screwed over
[QUOTE=darkking01;159030]Silas deserves a second chance because before him noone had ever been screwed by a twist or ever even heard of a twist in a reality show so he was the most screwed over[/QUOTE] Ha, yeah right. That was his own fault.
Yea I agree Silas and Lindsay did kind of get what they deserved in Africa however I'm not really opposed to either of them being on a Second Chance Edition, along with Kelly from that Season.

I'm all for giving someone a second chance if it wasn't their fault, but if it's because of their own stupidity? No thanks.
[QUOTE=molds13;159050]Meh, see I am. I'm all for giving someone a second chance if it wasn't their fault, but if it's because of their own stupidity? No thanks.[/QUOTE] it really wasn't stupidity they had no inclination at all that there would be a twist, no reason to think that the game would be any different than the last two(the scrapped outback swap rumors only started after the episode aired) if it hadn't been for the twis Silas would have gotten to the merge and very likely would have won enough immunities to make it deep into the game and while twists are on every show now back in 2001 there was no such thing as a twist on any show at that point so in fact Silas was screwed by the producers and imo it was agood thing for them that it happened to Silas and Lindsay because if it hapens to Ethan Tom or Lex the CBS gets tons of complaints and there are never any more twists

[QUOTE=Bacchus;159749]Ahh, finally...something we see eye to eye on with Survivor. Anyone can go back and look at my thoughts about JT during his season, but this was bold and big. He finally made a "real" move and if he makes it to the end it will be part of his legacy. He won his season with prepared sausage in hand. This time around, he has to make it.[/QUOTE] Yup! J.T.'s win was [I]so boring[/I] to watch. Wasn't a big fan of Tocantins.
[QUOTE=RockSteadyVybes;159753]Yup! J.T.'s win was [I]so boring[/I] to watch. Wasn't a big fan of Tocantins.[/QUOTE] But...but...COACH! :rolleyes:
[QUOTE=RockSteadyVybes;159753]Yup! J.T.'s win was [I]so boring[/I] to watch. Wasn't a big fan of Tocantins.[/QUOTE] Seriously. Everytime I think about that season I get pissed off. We had a bad, boring winner in J.T. and two ******* who came back this season in Coach and Tyson. Tyson doesnt even deserve to be on this season. Shane Powers deserved it more than Tyson.
Yeah, Tocantins was pretty lame. I thought Sierra would pull something similar to Peih-Gee from the China season (be initially annoying, but end up winning challenges to save herself). If only Taj stuck with Brendan...:(
[QUOTE=behindme;159795]I read that Shane Powers was asked but turned it down. Either way, I like Tyson and he's a personality, I understand why the producers would want him on the show. He's funny, he's conniving and he has the potential to seriously **** some people off and stir things up around camp--ratings gold. [/QUOTE] Shane Powers did not turn it down. He was set to go until they replaced him with Russell. He was not happy.
I thought Penner was supposed to get the Russell spot? I guess I could be wrong. Tyson is great for this season and not havign coach would be insane. Coach is one of the most entertaining people ever and definately makes the show allot better. He is so unpredictable.

Now I'm not saying Coach doesn't deserve to be on this season. He does I agree with him being cast. However I do disagree about Tyson being cast. Shane shouldve been given that spot with Tyson being ousted in place of Russell. Two people from Tocantins is plenty of representatives from that season. Tyson may have been a personality on his season but thus far this season he has contributed nothing & is obviously being overshadowed by the real personalities. Shane Powers was also a HUGE personality on his season & was literally part of one of the craziest alliances in Survivor history. He & Courtney together? Now that was real comedy gold. Oh well I am not in charge of casting but we the viewers will be left suffering if Tyson makes it far because he is good for nothing in terms of entertainment value this season. He is obviously trying to win which is probably why he has been so silent. Boring.
[QUOTE=Acid Rain;159806]Yeah, Tocantins was pretty lame.

If only Taj stuck with Brendan...:([/QUOTE] Awww Brendan, now I remember why I stuck with that season for so long. He was some delicious eye candy.
Tocantins was just all right... It was a hell of a lot better than Gabon. I feel Coach deserves to be on this season, but we could have had someone better than Tyson. Maybe Judd from Guatemala?
[QUOTE=Lamb Chop!!!;159877]Tocantins was just all right... It was a hell of a lot better than Gabon. I feel Coach deserves to be on this season, but we could have had someone better than Tyson.

[QUOTE=Aquatta;159878]Or Shane Powers who was screwed out o a spot at the very last minute. Just sayin.[/QUOTE] Well yeah Shane's a given... But there are already a few people from EI... No one is from Guatemala (unless you count Stephenie).
I was re watching Cook Islands this week. Its funny how big of a hypocrite Parvati is. Saying then Penner was a rat for voting off Nate (who is probably the biggest poser in Survivor history...maybe tied with Adam from the same season), then she did the same thing, if not worse to a real life friend in Ozzy. Not saying it wasnt a smart move to get rid of him, but its funny. Also, did she get rid of her tramp stamp? or have I just not noticed it this season?

In Micronesia, she was controlling the entire game!
Just a random note: it was exactly one decade ago yesterday that season 1 began filming.
