Survivor’s 29th season premieres tomorrow.September 25, 2014 at 6:37 am #554355
I like them all so far….which is very odd.September 29, 2014 at 8:08 am #554356
I watched this over the weekend. I’m definitely not as excited about this installment yet as I was last season, but we’ll see where we get. I agree, none of the contestants really stood out in terms of being someone I wanted gone. The other tribe will probably be more interesting when it comes time to eliminate someone.October 1, 2014 at 9:54 pm #554357
Well Val joins the James and Brandon H. hall of shame on want to not to do with Idol’s (or lying about them).October 2, 2014 at 8:07 am #554358
That whole tribe reeks of ineptitude. Val pretending to have TWO idols just seemed like such a foolish move. And when John, who told her he was trying to help her, told her that the plan to keep her around involved her playing one of her two idols, she just went along with it. I know she thought she had a way around it, but she basically set herself up to get votes at tribal for no reason. Why were Val and Baylor the only options for elimination? Baylor voted with the guys at last tribal, and she actually won her faceoff at the challenge. If they were scared of voting Val and Jaclyn because of the non-existent idols, why not target Josh, who didn’t vote with them last time? (In hindsight, that also seemed like a dumb move. Josh and Baylor would have been much better off if he had just voted with the guys and she voted with the girls. Making her vote against the girls just made her the odd man out of the tribe.) Some of the guys seem pretty useless. John, despite his size and strength, lost two challenges this week, and Wes and that younger brother guy don’t seem to be adding anything great in terms of strength or strategy. I’m sure there was more talk about other elimination options that we didn’t get to see, but this whole thing still really bugged me.
Also, even though Jon (on the other tribe) is a moron for losing the flint, it kind of redeemed it that he compared himself to J’Tia. That cracked me up.October 2, 2014 at 9:26 am #554359
Better than the premiere. Next week should be more fun. I hope Julie survives John Rocker drama; she seems like an interesting player.October 8, 2014 at 8:25 pm #554360
Oh Coyopa, another tribe that can’t win an immunity challenge.
I hope Natalie is voted out in the very near future. Annoying sore winner.October 9, 2014 at 6:21 am #554361
I would like to see the unedited version of Natalie ripping into John just to see how long he hold out.October 9, 2014 at 7:04 am #554362
I think what didn’t connect that clearly is that now Natalie is blaming John for getting Nadihya voted out, because Jeremy said he was calling the shots in that tribe. Her whole outburst seemed less like being a sore winner and more like a revenge mission to me. I mean, that whole agreement Jeremy and John made was ridiculous anyway. I guess it’s nice that they wanted to protect their wife and girlfriend, but the whole language of “you protect my woman, I’ll protect yours” grossed me out. It’s not like Survivor is a cage match. And you could tell by the way John tried to carry that out that there’s an inherent lack of respect for women — apparent when he got upset that she “lost to a girl” at the challenge. Good riddance to him. Is Baylor going to be one of those players who gets votes every week but still sticks around?October 11, 2014 at 7:23 pm #554363
I love the Blood vs Water idea, but man these people are idiots. I will never understand why these people need to cry about their loved ones. If I go on this show with my brother and he leaves, I have to asume I’ll be sane enough to understand that he gets to go home and sleep in a bed while I’m still the one suffering in this game sleeping with bugs and rain and a chance to get a million dollars. Maybe I’ll be upset that he doesn’t get to play anymore since I have to believe my loved one really really wanted to play Survivor, but that’s about it. You’re eliminated? Bye! Go Home! or go to Ponderosa and eat something.
Whats’ the deal with Val’s husband. He promised you he would take care of her? Are you serious? The stupid twin crying because they haven’t been apart in 28 years? My God!. You’ll be eliminated soon enough, you’ll see her in 10 days! She’s not dead, she went home!
Stop it with the crying!!!. These people on all these realitiy shows have never been on vacation or a trip, right? They’re on these shows for a freaking week and they’re already crying saying they miss mommy. I can’t even imagine myself crying if I get the token product placement phone and get to call home. And don’t get met started on the “letters from home” reward. I’m basically on vacation playing Survivor meeting Jeff Probst, I would cry if I see my bed or my fridge since that’s what I need right now. My mom? 20 days without seeing her? I’m not going to cry! Maybe if I’m on the extremely awful Utopia and it’s been a year, but common, Survivor? Top Model? Project Runway? Grow up!
I understand parents who miss their little kids, but most people are just ridiculous.October 11, 2014 at 11:31 pm #554364
I think it’s easy to find it ridiculous, but when you have nothing to do and you are basically paranoid about the game with nobody to trust, you can easily feel this emotion. As much as I want to say I will be rationale, after a few days, I might have also feel these emotions bubbling at times.October 17, 2014 at 8:50 am #554365
That was a very satisfying tribal council and elimination this week. The episodes have made Drew look moronic and delusional since the season started, and it really ramped up here with him saying he was the kingpin and all. I don’t think there’s anything that bothers me more than when the contestants throw the challenge to vote off someone on their own tribe. (Maybe that time Colton convinced his tribe to voluntarily go to tribal council was equally bad.) So I was happy to see him go. Plus, this helps me get to know Alec better, who this week definitely seemed the more interesting of the two, with this chip on his shoulder about Drew being the lazy favored son and him working for everything, which, based on Drew’s behavior, seems true. I also liked that the guys didn’t even remotely get their act together before going to tribal. It made sense that Jeremy voted with the women, because all the women have loved him since the first challenge when he had to send his wife to Exile Island, but the other four guys voted for three different people. And LOL at Nathalie’s imitation of Keith.October 17, 2014 at 12:12 pm #554366

I’d like to know why Jon randomly voted for Keith. There’s a lot of dumb and weird moves this season.October 17, 2014 at 1:27 pm #554367
5 Questions for you all
Why did Reed voted with Keith after ratting him out to Jermery?
Why did John vote for Keith?
Why don’t Keith come up with a real plan if he wants to take Jermery out?
Why did Jermery admitt to the girls and everyone else he willing to stab them in the back at the end?
Why was Drew pick to be on this Show?
