Survivor is still crushing it in the ratings department and this season has gotten off to a great start. There has been emotion, drama and lots of game play up to this point and things have already shifted significantly on one tribe.
New alliances have been formed and the theme of the season so far seems to be all about the social game. Shiren, Spencer and Fishbach don’t seem to understand this aspect of the game and it has gotten them into hot water early on. Terry, on the other hand, has improved his social game significantly since his last appearance on Survivor and he appears to be reaping the rewards. Of course, this will all change once the merge hits but for now, let’s enjoy this crazy Brazilian soap opera.
Jeff Probst: “How often do you replay Tribal Council?”
Kelly: “Every day!”
Survivor is back for its 31st fucking season! Holy shit. And I don’t know what is worse…the fact that this show has been on the air for 31 fucking seasons or the fact that I have never missed an episode since the best reality show in television history aired its first episode back in the summer of 2000. I was still in high school when it all began and clearly I’m still a nerd. Hell, we went camping that summer and I vaguely remember all of us voting out one of our buddies from camping. Classic!
That said, I love the fact that they are bringing back castaways for the 31st go around, especially Kelly who was there for the first Survivor and lost to a naked, tax evading genius. Richard was one of the best players to play this game but who will come out victorious this year? Your guess is as good as mine.
I do know this though…if Mikey was on this season of Survivor, I would win. Period. I’m still 100% positive that I would completely dominate on Survivor no matter who I’m up against, veterans or not. I don’t need a lot of food, I love the outdoors / being out of my element and I have a TON of energy. The only problem is that Canadians are not allowed to play Survivor! Earth to CANADA…let’s bring this damn show here, please!
So grab your buff and your torch and let’s get ready for some tribal council!
