Rob told her he wasn't going to be on it. I can imagine if she shared any thoughts on her strategy while hanging with him she would feel betrayed by that.

This is still so weird, and now that we know it didn’t pay off for rob at all it’s even weirder. Like, is the stress of keeping a secret together in person for 40 days for minimal strategy gain remotely worth it? It really feels like he out-Robbed himself

I think that's just Rob. He probably just thought it might help him in some way and then was self satisfied that he was putting one over on her. Its kind of Rob's thing.

FWIW a new season of Naked and Afraid XL just started. Set in South Africa, the second episode is Sunday on Discovery (the first episode was mostly expository, the second one is were stuff starts).

This time there is an explicit banishment option.

Sorry if I missed a mention itt, or if there's already a thread. 🙂

That's already been done before except the people voted off the island get eaten by zombies.

I can confirm that when walking through an abandoned mall at 6 AM with just the sounds of random other workers or elderly mall walkers somewhere unknown in the 4 level maze your mind both goes to "the zombies are about to pop out" and "It would be fun to loot some stores."

This is why I'd go for the season.

So I got distracted with other stuff and fell waaaaaaay behind on finishing S40. Just marathoned the last three episodes and wow.

I spent the entire season disbelieving but desperately wishing that Tony could actually do it again. I’m comfortable calling him without a doubt the greatest Survivor player of all time. That was... astonishing.

I was terrified the Edge twist was going to screw things up, I hated bringing someone back that late. But the right person won and it was probably the best All-Stars season of all time.

...and now I have 1330 posts to catch up on.

Island of the Idols: Reading the summary doesn't do this gross shitshow justice. You really have to see it to believe it. They put the show above all else and everyone except for a few decent people came off looking really bad. Props to Jamal for his truth bombs. I didn't realize Dan's ejection wasn't going to happen during the double episode so watching these people continue to work with him and not vote him out for several episodes just kept making it worse. I don't think he could have won but dragging him to the end would have guaranteed a win for someone, and you can't convince me that the thought never crossed the minds of some of these players.

As far as Tommy goes, he's a totally forgettable player. I didn't even notice him until towards the end and anytime someone would say "Tommy" I was like, who the gently caress is Tommy?

edit: I really hate when there are three finalists and one of them gets no votes. You can really see the sadness in their eyes.

Seconding this. Years ago when I worked at one, something happened with a nearby factory right around closing and the surrounding area got shut down because of a potential chemical leak. The cops slowly let other employees out, but my manager and I got held back for way longer because she was mega pregnant. It just just us, cops, lots of police lights outside, various sirens... weird night.

Caught up on the thread and disappointed with essential links being missed.

Regarding Survivor: Amazon, the two part MTV Rumble in the Jungle preview show starring the legendary Robb Z (the guy who brought his skateboard to a beach, and chokeslammed a racist in a challenge) and Shii Ann.

(Bring back the ATTACK ZONE challenge IMO)

Regarding the living legend that is Coach, it’s required by law to post the trailer to his feature film “180”.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YmtP2Zt0PAA

Also starring Danielle!

Now I just need someone to mention Survivor Fiji and Survivor Nicaragua...

2017 Australian Survivor was a great season. What a great cast. Without question a top 5 survivor season (even if the non elimination episodes are a bit tedious, they are good for fleshing out the relationships and story telling.) The US edition needs to import Luke asap.

Yea Luke is one of the great Survivor characters. The 1st Champions Vs Contenders season when they bring him back, he is also amazing in. (if you haven't watched that one... this is a spoiler for the results)... It was nice to see them give Luke the Rupert treatment and create a fan favorite type award to give him the 1st place prize money after the season was over

I haven't seen anything on this and everything is still currently available? Although it wouldn't surprise me and I think CBS likes to do that poo poo with as little of an announcement as possible. At least that's how they did it with Netflix and Blue Bloods...

Wonder how long it will take for Comcast to start offering packages of streaming services for $100 / month.

I saw some official ad somewhere (I forget where) that said “Survivor: Exclusively on CBS All Access!” And hurriedly checked Hulu only to find it was still there. I can’t remember where I saw it now.

My wife and I have been trying to to watch all the seasons. We are like 2/3rds through so if there’s an end date for the whole thing we wanna know.

China: What a great season with a highly likable cast, save for a few toxic bros who were spared in exchange for more likable players like Ashley and Sherea. Jean Robert was gross and gropey and should have been booted much sooner. Great final three in Todd, Amanda, and Courtney. I can see why people didn't like Courtney or consider her annoying but she made for great TV and almost won. I'd like to see her return one day.

Next up: Panama, Amazon, or Palau...

Have you seen Heroes vs. Villains? She's just as good in that.

Personally, I'd do Amazon to see Rob C. and Matt in action together.

Now watching Palau and I think this opening twist of immediately removing two players from the game is unfair and downright cruel. Imagine trying for years to get on Survivor only to get to spend a few hours on the beach and being removed from the game by a schoolyard pick.

It was pretty much the worst opening twist they've conceived of, yeah. I hated it when it came back in Blood vs. Water.

Yeah the Palau twist was bad, though everyone knows Wanda would have played the first perfect Survivor game and she not been voted out right then and there. Probably would have come back for Heroes vs. Villains and won that too, and then beaten Tony in Winners at War for her third win.

TAR did something similar once where they had an opening task and the last team to finish it got eliminated immediately.

Which is also lame, but I think Survivor is a bit worse because you've flown to another country and are sequestered longer. You're out for about a month and a half while I think TAR takes maybe three weeks at most.

If they ever do that all first boots season I hope they never do, the concession I demand is that it be named Survivor: Wandas at War.

Yeah I mean, Big Brother has been doing day 1 boots for a while now as well, but it's usually tied up in a challenge so you can feel like there is a little bit of agency there. Schoolyard pick right off the bat sucks.

Yeah, BB's had a few "Day 1" boots but I think they've all at least lost a comp. Its still not terribly fair and the handful of people who got done that way actually get remembered in BB fandom and lore. But that thing Survivor's done where they just eliminate someone arbitrarily like Wanda is just plain mean.

The saddest thing about Wanda is they removed all her songs from most (all?) legal copies of the episode. I know the songs were cut from the CBS All Access version (maybe they put them back at some point?) and I think the episode is completely missing from Hulu.
