    For some reason I decided to check my Survivor predictions randomly and am a bit surprised to see Amber and Rob so high up on the elimated possibilities so switched to one of them. You guys usually are correct on these things so I switched lol

    Update: switching back to natalie or sophie going with my gut

    This episode….crazy. Glad I went with my gut and predicted Natalie. Amber seemed doomed from the start. My guess for next week: adam or ben

    Fantastic Episodes

    I can barely contain my happiness over seeing all these amazing players on the beach together.

    Some thoughts

    WOW everyone looks great
    Yul, Danni, Amber, Ethan have all aged really well.

    Tyson asking the women if they have been in water yet kills me.
    I think the tribe divisions were super fair expect Natalie and Jeremy should have been on opposite tribes and frankly so should have Sarah and Tony.. So I would have swapped Sarah and Natalie and I feel the tribes would have been 100% prefect.

    That first challenge is a good one, I like a game that starts right out . I read that it was actually best out of five and that the red tribe won the other two rounds that were not aired. Dalton also stated the current was super strong and in favor of the red tribe during this challenge also

    Red wins and that means the blue tribe will go to tribal and not have fire.
    So beach stuff
    Loved seeing Sandra and Tony being nice and just chilling, I think for the bigger players its in their best interest to work together and make a giant shield. So I think its smart of them.

    Denise and Adam getting lost was unfortunate for them

    Ben is a sucker and Rob played him so hard, rob once again showing off why he is such a good player by simply just coaxing this info out of ben without any difficulty.

    Love Parv and Rob working together, they have the same problems and Tony and Sandra if the four of them could work together they could run the game.

    Danni put her foot in her mouth, but then like the pro she is she turned the situation and flipped it without any difficulty. im very happy with the old school alliance of Rob , Parv, Ethan and Danni .. I really want them to be able to snag someone and run this game to the end.

    It was shocking tome how Jeremy and Natalie didn’t sense that their relationship would be an issue and that they didn’t try to solidify themselves faster.

    I think the first vote made sense somewhat, but I think rob and parv should have kept Jeremy and nat as s shield and gotten out Denise

    Second Episode –
    EOE looks miserable , if Natalie is tired I would die , Smart choice sending it to Sandra cause you know she is going to be a target at some point so why not get that token.

    Second challenge was a beast … Rob throwing people over the barrel was the best thing ive seen . he just chucked Parvati over that thing .. I don’t think she even touched it . Sandra yelling at tony during the game was the best … she kills me

    It was super close and very competitive and I love that , this season is going to be intense competition in these challenges.

    Blue wins .. Good job Jeremy with those Rings he pulled it out

    The red tribe is going to tribal.

    WOW who would have thought it’s been 16 years since Yul has played because he is still 100% on his game. He knew who to target and how and he is going to be a very big threat to win this whole thing. Sophie is right to go with Yul but she will need to know when it’s time to cut him.
    Sandra and Tony are too much, they are just running and saying shit and freaking people out. it’s too much . Sad to see Sandra hold a grudge with rob as I think that those big threats best bets are each other and she and tony could have used Amber , cause while they are safe rn , come a swap they will be in the bottom .

    Yul proved to be the mastermind and they voted poor amber out. I was rooting for her to make it a bit further I love her arc on the show overall.

    So both are great episodes and I’m actually going to rewatch them before next week … Super excited for this whole season can’t wait

    The first episode was amazing. This season looks like it will definitely make up for the last two atrocious seasons. I hope we can forget about the last two seasons and maybe never see those players again. The reason edge of extinction works this time is because not only do the voted out players affect what’s going on inside the game, but also we actually want to see any of these players get back in the game.

    Yul, Danni, Amber, Ethan have all aged really well.

    Will ad Parv and Adam to the list as well but these in particular look pretty identical to the last time they played

    Very nice premiere episode. Very fun.

    Although as I mentioned on the last page, it won’t be easy to get over the fact that people are so stupid Sandra and Rob are still on this show. At least they voted off Amber. But then they added the tokens or coins, that edge of extintion bullshit, more idols and all that crap. Why not make this a simple season?

    As much as I like Natalie, she should’ve gone home to talk to her sister about how it feels to be voted off first. Not to some other “lonely” island where she can come back, give power, coins, tokens and who knows what other shitty plot they’re gonna try to pull off to make Sandra, Rob and Amber be on the show longer than they need to be.

    The whole “shield” thing frustrates me. Everybody is a shield here anyway, so why save Rob and Sandra? I know they’re obviously the biggest shields, but they’re also great players and manipulators who can screw up the game for everybody. If I were playing I need them out immediately because I know one way or another I’m gonna regret it later when Sandra wins this show twice. Fastforward however many years later and now there’s 2 million dollars on the line, so this girl can’t end up with 4 million dollars and 3 wins. But she’ll try and people will let her.

    I loved the first couple of episodes. It would have been great to see the two players that I don’t think belong with this group, Ben and Adam, be voted out, but otherwise it was good. It was sad seeing Natalie get voted out, especially since Denise and Adam made themselves such easy targets, but it made sense, too. I think of Jeremy/Natalie was one of the most memorable connects in my viewing, so no one should have wanted them plotting together, especially not pre-merge. I felt for Amber, but she also didn’t seem to do much to make herself a less easy vote (versus Tyson and Kim, who were walking around pitifully begging not to be voted out). It’s fantastic to see so many great players all together at once. I’m also loving the flashbacks. There are quite a few players whose winning seasons I never saw (Ethan, Amber, Rob, Parvati, Tyson, Danni, Sandra), and some of them I’ve never seen play at all. But I loved trying to keep track of all these people and their little connections and histories. It felt like coming into a soap opera that had been running for decades.

    The changes to Edge of Extinction seem to have made a huge difference. I guess we’ll see more as the season progresses. I was shocked that they did this crazy twist again (you know who’s not here this season — EoE Chris), but it might work better now. But these fire coins also seem like they could just get too complicated. I guess we’ll see.
