Whatever tape you found in that VCR, it isn't mine.

quote:

Given the nature of the season ó pitting new players against not only each other, but specters of Survivor past as well ó Probst says it was crucial to make sure the cast was filled with as many genuine Survivor fans as humanly possible.

"Massively important," he says about the decision to cast fans. "It was really the only criteria, that they had to be super fans, or they have a really good knowledge of the game. They don't have to be super fans. But that was fun.
Not the only criteria, Jeff

This whole cast is hot as gently caress. Hopefully some of them have brains.

Poison: everyone younger than 24

Ken, I grew up in Dublin. I love Dublin. If I grew up on a farm, and was retarded, Bruges might impress me but I didn't, so it doesn't.


Has anyone who ever says "I'm gonna be the smartest one there!" Have that remotely turn out to be true?

I think I may dislike Dominick a bit more though.

I'm not someone who makes pre-show predictions, but yeah, generally if you're the kind of person who goes into the game thinking "I'm just smarter than everyone else" then you're probably not the kind of person who really has the necessary skills to win this game.

He will know I am near when he hears the screams of my enemies.

I've been reading the pre-cast interviews and I love that anytime someone gets asked 'any ethical boundaries like lying, etc.?' almost all of them immediately go 'yes but I'm not gonna stoop to Varner's level'. To be fair, Game Changers was the last season they watched so it'd be fresh in their minds.

I mean, it is basically the new standard.

"Sure, I'd lie and said my grandma died or destroy people's property for fun but I'd never out someone. That's hosed up."

God help the bastard who sets the next bar.

Um. I don't know. Outright racial slurs or white nationalism as a tribal tactic? Mocking a newly dead relative?

So something along lines: "I'm voting you out because you are adopted from non white country and you should be ashamed that your adoptive mother recently died as well that you come play survivor when you should be home feeling ashamed that your master is dead. Kinds like you don't belong to survivor."


Yeah thats so hosed up that I would most likely end up in Fijian prison if I was in the victims shoes.

Well Big Brother has managed to have "Why don't you kill yourself like you father did?", "That's why your mother abandoned you, because youre trash", and outright racist bullying. So things can always go lower.

That's so hosed. I actually wonder what hosed up stuff has been said or done in survivor but didn't make to the cameras or producers decided not to include it in the show (etc winner of a season saying something that would contradict the storyline they want to give him).

I mean, Corrine and Will Sims got pretty darn close there.

And while she's not exactly reviled, Courtney Yates made fun of a miscarriage.

I'm sure some of our bigger Survivor villains probably had some really bad lines we'll never know about. And probably some of our Survivor heroes too. Hell, I'm always a little suspicious when a Big Brother villain goes to Survivor or Amazing Race and comes off better. But who knows?

Those things I remember off the top of my head all made shows and one was on live tv, so Survivors could always sink lower and we see it given time and opportunity. Its a rough thing when we watch shows about pressing people to their edges to show who they are.

I would bet there are a lot of hate speech lines on the editing room floor, these are people who are sometimes going days without eating or sleeping and spending 24+ hours straight getting rained on while they stare at nothing. Honestly it's amazing to me that they ever say anything coherent, sometimes.
