I laughed so hard at the fake idol being revealed! That's got to go down in Survivor history as one of the best moments!!

If anything, it had the absolute worst result of the hidden immunity idol as it gave Yul a free pass to the finals since

1) It could be used through the final tribal council.

2) It could be used after the vote.

Nobody in their right mind could target Yul because it would mean one of you would be out on your ass. It was the cheapest, most unfair ploy yet and it's bad enough that the idol saved Yul (& his alliance) once and then handed him a million dollars on a platter. If the idol dies right before the last challenge, Yul's sitting on the jury writing Ozzy's name on a check.

Not that it would be a better result, but Yul had a pretty easy game path. Put me in his body with my own experiences & background and I could have easily snagged myself a million dollars the way he did.
Once the Cook Islands got over the slow start it was awesome. Candace and Jonathan mutineering to Raro, Aitu's revenge by sending Candace to exile over and over causing her to have a breakdown, Jonathan backstabbing everyone again, Candace and Adam basically hooking up, Sundra and Becky's hour and a half long final fire battle at the tribal council, Ozzy's awesome athleticism, Becky being ignored and mocked during the final tribal council... It was predictable who would win - but the Cook Islands season resembles this current season as the "weaker" team has risen phoenix like to dominate the game.

I loved China - and loved the continual blindsiding in Fans VS Favourites as well - but IMO Cook Islands was awesome fun.

Bottom line:

Randy doesn't know how to play the game of Survivor.

If anything, a lot of his behavior is mugging for the cameras--hoping for a shot at reality-TV fame. I'm not surprised at all he'd stick up for Ace. They're cut from the same attention-seeking cloth.

Sugar, on the other hand, I'm liking more and more. She's fun to watch and cute to boot. She knows how to play the social game and I could see her profiting from the post-show 15 minutes of fame as well. Good for her!

Sugar is awesome. Her cracking up as Randy handed over the fake idol was absolute Survivor gold. So damn funny.

That was epic, and will remain my favourite Survivor "moment" ever.

How do you remember all this stuff?? That's pretty good. I cant keep any of them straight or remember all the old cast members, there have been so many seasons of Survivor.

Bit of a refresher here or there on Sucks, but about 90% of it is glued into my skull. I just have an excellent memory for a lot of things. I can even remember my reactions to most of the winners and where I was at the time.

Jenna? Jenna!

I take that one back now given that they made her look more evil for storyline purposes and that Matt had absolutely no game. I remember the All Stars finale absolutely sucking because I knew that Rob/Amber were still dating & that it seemed to be headed towards marriage, so the winner didn't matter.

The most frightened I ever was involved Survivor: Thailand....I counted up the numbers and saw that Clay had an opening which made me absolutely sick. We should all be thankful, that from an objective standpoint, the right person has won in all 16 seasons thus far. You might not have liked the person at the time, but compare the games of one person at the final tribal to the other one (or two) and it's hard not to praise the jury for letting bygones be bygones.

I've downloaded more than that.....Survivor UK 1/2....Australian Survivor (a must see)....Celebrity Survivor Australia.....Survivor South Africa 1/2......love having extra doses of Survivor.

I haven't kept any of the seasons though. The only one I've re-watched was Survivor: Borneo on OLN which holds up very well since the challenges don't take up nearly as much of the episode as they do now. I also saw a few Australian Outback episodes which were great but not as good as Borneo...Borneo's probably the best, but Australian Outback seemed superior at the time just because more people you knew were watching it and the media saturation was pretty intense, thus hyping the season up further.

I also managed to catch a Survivor: Thailand episode...the one right before the fake merge where the annoying Robb is voted out. Just as boring as I remembered it.

If you're an Amazing Race fan (I'm actually behind on this season), you can also check out The Amazing Race: Asia...teams from all over Asia compete...you can probably find it on torrents, completely in English.




On another note, I've done the Survivor Hall Of Fame at Survivor Sucks for a few years now. I think we've come up with a pretty good list of the show's greatest characters that have made this truly the greatest reality franchise in history.

Here's the complete list of inductees:



Borneo: Richard/Kelly/Rudy/Sue/Colleen/Greg/Gretchen
Australian Outback: Tina/Colby/Elisabeth/Jerri/Mike
Africa: Ethan/Lex/Tom/Teresa
Marquesas: Kathy/Paschal/Sean/Rob M
Thailand: Brian/Shii-Ann
Amazon: Jenna/Rob C
Pearl Islands: Sandra/Johnny Fairplay/Rupert
Vanuatu: Chris/Eliza/Ami
Palau: Tom/Stephenie
Guatemala: (none)
Panama - Exile Island: Newly Eligible

Contestants need 25% to stay on a given ballot and 65% of the vote to be elected. There's also a five year-maximum that one can be on the ballot before being removed entirely. This is our seventh election.

Vote In The Survivor: Hall Of Fame

Thought I might draw in some more fans that are fun to talk with while I'm lurking around here for opinions on the recent Edge interview.

I didn't ad that I also have Survivor Australia, Celebrity Survivor Australia, Survivor South Africa seasons 1 and 2, Greek Survivor and some weird Norwegian thing that is like Survivor but they live in village. I didnt even know there was a UK Survivor - since they have 'I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here' and that other show where people are on islands and they have to have the most tribe members at the end. Kind of Survivor in reverse. I'm not sure if its an official Survivor. I've hung on to all of them. When the current Survivor finishes I tend to dip in to an old season to tide me over. After Gabon I reckon it's time to give the Marquesas another whirl!

I also whole heartedly agree The Amazing Race Asia is awesome. Season 3 has just ended - literally yesterday. I'm so glad I have a huge download allowance - I've got the 3 AR Asias and all 13 or so that have been on CBS. You can also see the Brazilian version - its on Mininova.
