Speaking of smart clothing contestants wear on this show I noticed Suzie's top with those holes around the neckline was smart....she can tie up the holes as the top stretches to keep it on her!

I'd wear those all weather pants like cargo pants you can zip off to make into shorts. I'd also wear socks cuz you can use socks to keep your hands and arms warm or protected if necessary, and some kind of headwear to protect your head from the elements.

In a few seasons they told them they were going to do photo shoots when really the game was starting, hence the clothes being professional rather than casual. Wearing a suit isn't a bad idea for warmth as trying to get through the nights is probably the hardest part of the experience...

And I've been tipped off that next season is another Fans vs. Favorites!

Favorites Cast:

Twila (Vanuatu)
Stephenie (Palau/Guatemala)
Judd (Guatemala)
Shane (Panama - Exile Island)
Terry (Panama - Exile Island)
Alex (Fiji)
Courtney (China)
P.G. (China)
Natalie (Micronesia)
Ken (Gabon)


Nah, I jest. I'm kind of wishing now that Micronesia was a full on All Stars...I mean, it turned out great, but there are some characters I would've liked to see again and the fans were pretty lame and prevented the season from being a classic.

Which makes me wonder why they still continue to show up for "photo shoots" in skirts and suits. The first time it was totally understandable because the contestants had no idea and it was brilliant. But they've done it more than once now.

It's a photo shoot for Survivor, no one is going to care if you're in cargo pants and a tee shirt with a bathing suit underneath. It's like these people have never seen the show before. I would always assume that it was going to be the start of the game.

I always assumed they were told to dress like that by the producers i.e. "we want you to dress in the clothes you would wear for your career" or something like that. I think they do it because they think we audience members will find it more entertaining if they're running around in the wild (well not the "Wild" wild but you know what I mean ) in these ridiculous clothes. And I admitt I've found it a little detail that does add to the over all entertainment value.

Susie made a smart move for herself, I think. Too bad I find her so annoying.

Randy appears to be this seasons Richard Hatch. He sure reminds me of him.

And incidentally weren't there previews last week that showed scenes from this episode with people getting naked? What happened to those scenes? Or am I imagining things?

I haven't. I don't like to see the guys in those hideous boxer-briefs and the girls in their bras. I'm not a prude by any means, it just looks ugly. I miss the bathing suits, the cute bikinis on the girls and the cargo shorts or swim trunks with tank tops on the guys. It was a Survivor "look." Now they all just look terrible.

I saw that preview too...It seemed like it was from when they threw the idol in the water, but I do not remember it happening on the actual show

I think the editors don't work too far out in advance and continue tweaking shows until the day they air. For example, I think we were given more Rupert in Pearl Islands because fan reaction (negative or positive) was so overwhelming. Another case in point, one of this season's episodes had a title that wasn't actually used in the episode (so whatever scene & person said it must've been cut at the last minute).

^Interesting thought indeed. It wouldn't surprise me if they didn't do special editing last minute in an effort to keep and get the ratings and viewership. The producers have to keep things exciting by promising drama, fights, twists and turns on the show. Keeping things enticing and entertaining. Otherwise ratings dip and the show could be cancelled.

Why do you think they decided to dispense with that scene?
