I'm not sure what shan was thinking choosing Brad who's called her weak to her face and jd who's flighty as hell over Sarah

Agreed, Brad basically said she's next for him that should have been a very easy vote for her

Brad has no say in the tribe, tho. I mean he got what he wanted with Sara being voted out but I doubt that had anything to do with him. Shan has more power than him in the tribe and it was only just because of that one immunity challenge. Plus, wasn't there a scene where he was swearing up and down to Shan that he was loyal to her. That might have also been a contributing factor in why she kept him.

This season is already everything the Facebook groups have been begging for; less food for the contestants and people who look like regular people competing 

It's awful, I need my eyecandy. I don't find anyone attractive. Liana is pretty enough but I don't bat for her team. 

 

 

Wait...people actually enjoyed that? No way!

Someone did--I thought it was the arguably the worst premier--especially given it was 2 hours long

We get it, you two hate new seasons of shows and wish everything was like the good old days

I do think the product is worse.  Do you disagree?  

 

i really enjoyed the premiere, but i wish sara stayed!!

Can i ask what you liked about it?   It seemed slow and predictable.   Maybe you liked the people better than I did lol

i think i was excited survivor was back and i enjoyed the backstory we got on the castaways. i thought that the twists were good unlike prior season's useage of ghost island, a legacy advantage, advantage menu, etc. and i was happy to see abraham go! 

My biggest problem is they're trying to push this new era, which absolutely nobody asked for. I wanted Survivor 41 not drop the 4 keep the 1, just give me more Survivor. Nobody cares that Probst is on twitter every day and needs to seem woke, that come on guys shit should have been edited out and deleted immediately it was so cringe. Nobody cares about making the game harder, they haven't focused on camp life in years, and they're not going to start now when there's 30 new advantages in play, so it's basically being done to torture the cast like Total Madness where they had shit living conditions but never showed it. Also they're just handing everyone advantages at the start of the game now, like for real? I'm glad none came into play yet since it's episode 1 and it should be about who can fit in with their tribe and/or be an asset either at camp or in challenges. I was complaining about Australian Survivor having too many idols/advantages but this premiere made AU look like Borneo in comparison. And of course the things we actually want gone aren't going anywhere, F4 firemaking for some reason isn't gone, F3 in general really should be done with tbh. And that stupid jury format can go with it

that come on guys shit should not have been edited out and deleted immediately it was so cringe.

i agree this was really bad, and after looking at the Facebook, they made a lot of people upset by having that conversation twice. definitely could've just edited it out and just shown jeff saying "come on in!"

the Facebook people are hilarious like nearly all the comments are from people butthurt that they didnt get cast lol. Jeff was embarrassingly cringe tho

If you are referring to Big Brother, Survivor, and The Challenge. Correct, lol. The product was way better back then. This new soft childrens version of these shows is cringe and embarrassing. I don't think any grown adult would argue that. I think everyone is in agreement so not sure why it's a big deal when I call it out.

This was pretty bad, I only like Genie and Tiffany. Hoping 42 isn't this fake woke, Jeff needs to be stopped

because it's basically the only thing you ever post, at least kvm has variety. 

Jeff is atrocious. I'd rather Handler TJ Lavin. He wants so bad for Survivor to be this inspiring family show...unm no it's a cutthroat game. We don't need you to be woke for self-serving purposes and pushing sentimental stories on us. Give me manipulation and backstabbing please. It's a game not a political statement.

Nah, I post a wide variety. I doubt you even disagree with what I'm saying. Youre just arguing it cause I'm annoying and extra about it lol.

That's fair--and I dislike the background stories so that was probably the main difference.  We'll see how the twists play.  And, yes, Abraham leaving was a plus.

I thought drop the 4 and keep the 1 meant no idols/advantages like season 1 was lol.... Or at least keep it at a minumum all this extra shit is ridiculous

Honestly I didn't think it was terrible. Personally I'm not a fan of premerge gameplay, most of the time it's lazy and boring. But seeing them vote off abraham instead of tiffany was a pleasant surprise. 

other than the come on in guys and some of the flashbacks, I really enjoyed this. Finally a season focused on gameplay (although a LOT of complicated twists) instead of dumb themes. I also love this cast. The new casting person for BB and Survivor has done a great job. 

Really strong premiere that should only get better. 

I don't know what it is about the cast but I hated every single one of them. Hopefully that changes as the season progresses if I make it that far.

They didn't even bother to give this season a title and the overall buzz on the season has been non-existent so I don't have a high bar set. The show went away at the beginning of the pandemic and I really didn't notice. Maybe that says a lot about where I am as a viewer of this show after so many years. 

Episode-wise, the "come on guys" stuff was major cringe, but the show in my opinion mostly stuck to the formulaic roots of years past including the standard head fake edit.  I really can't see a true tier 1 villain coming out of this group and I'm not particularly gravitating to anyone through the first two hours. I'm willing to give it a few weeks to see if I can get invested in some of the characters

 

it's refreshing seeing bacchus posting tbh 

do we know why they didn't give the show a name and just went survivor 41? i'll be honest i'm not a true fan of the show (just started watching seasons during pandemic) but the names always confuse me. if i read that Survivor: Pearl Islnds is good, that means nothing to me lol. 

the last few minutes of Shan kind of shaking up the tribal council was the only good part of the episode.

it was mentioned but the "Come on in guys" part was top tier pandering and cringe i almost turned my tv off immediately. Jeff also talks way too much, he himself threw Abraham under the bus mid tribal and it turned me off a lot

Because they plan on staying in Fiji as long as possible and there's only so many stupid names they can come up with based around shitty twists and themes. Apparently the potential title for this one was Survivor: Dawn of a New Era so we're probably better off with just numbers

The show is so full of itself like hearing about how it changes lives of people watching is so cringe.  its a cbs show

i mean when the host of your show is also the exec there's gonna be a group who just kiss his *** and the *** of the show they're competing on.

say Survivor is your life and birthed 3 of your kids and that camera might direct you to an idol or two

They have no idea how stupid it looks when they do this.

International series are better then the new seasons. I don't remember the last good US Season.
