    I've watched every season, but as others have said there are a few I can't even remember. I kept saying right from the opening, until the 2nd person was voted off last night, "Vote Sandra out you idiots. It should be 9-0." SMH.

    Adam Klein is a good buddy of mine from a project called the ThirstLounge we did over the last year. I've also played poker w/ Boston Rob & Tyson a few times so this will be a REALLY fun season to sweat

    My guilty pleasure. Seen every season. I don't remember half the winners but like anytime returning players are involved.

    How long till we can talk about last week's episodes? It's rare I run into survivor fans and always nice to chat about the show

    Man I was saying the sane thing to my wife. Why isn't it a unanimous Sandra vote? Morons.

    I like the idea of redemption island and the token idea. It's funny that both Boston Rob and Sandra now have idols.

    Rob doesn't have an idol. Only Sandra. Rob has two fire tokens, though.

    Won't he Trade his token for a idol like sandra? Maybe I missed that? Oh well, should be interesting. Can't wait for next week.

    I absolutely hate this show and I've never missed an episode.

    My wife and I are huge fans of Survivor. We were lucky enough to be part of the dream team on Heroes vs Villains (season 20 -Samoa) which meant we got to test out the challenges before the contestants and offer suggestions for improvement. Jeff is really cool and when our camera got stolen, he gave us his personal camera to use. He even personally drove us around the island and gave us super fans huge insight into the show.

    I would like to think I am the only person to have voted out Jeff and he was not happy. lol

    That's not how they work. Sandra was able to buy an idol because one was gifted to her from Natalie. Perhaps there will be an opportunity for Amber to send him something in the future, but unless I missed something, he was only gifted her fire token at this point. I like the idea of the fire tokens, I think that could add excitement to the game, but I dislike the whole Edge of Extinction. I prefer the finality of a vote out.

    Yeah I missed that. Must have zoned out. I like a final vote also but with all stars, the edge of extinction keeps interesting people in the game. I bet they figured Rob and Sandra would be targeted first and didn't want them off the show in the first couple of episodes.

    They had that one song, but honestly, how many times can you listen to "Eye of the Tiger".....

    I’d have to say probably 99% of people don’t like EoE. I think they brought it back because some players they brought back this season thought If they came back they’d be voted off immediately and wanted assurance they’d get another chance. Jeff said in an interview with Rob C that they won’t do EoE again for several seasons if not ever again so that’s promising. I don’t like it either.

    The singer also did those "real men of genius" beer commercials. Who can forget those?

    I hated EoE the first time, and I'm not a big fan of it this time either. That being said, I think the key to fully enjoying this season is to embrace both EoE and the fire tokens. This is clearly a very different game of Survivor than what has been played in the past. When your torch get snuffed at tribal, you're not really voted out in the traditional sense. It just means that you have moved into a parallel, but still very important side game. It's clear from the power of the fire tokens that they are going to play a HUGE part in the game's final outcome.

    EoE looks miserable, I’m a fan.

    #71 3 days ago

    I'm sure the whole experience is pretty miserable, period. You are living outside for +30 days...without pinball.

    #72 2 days ago

    EoE is good for these all stars so we can still see our favorites if they get voted off early.

    #73 2 days ago

    Love the show, I caught on a little late and watched maybe the last 15 seasons. I'm with everyone else though that's it's gotten exhausting lately with all the real life drama messing up the show. I also think the advantages and twists have gotten out of hand. If something's not broke, quit trying to fix it!

    Favorite player at least lately has been Rick Devins, he deserved to win that season, not the guy who befriended the jury on an island he couldn't be voted out from

    Big fan here and even though I have watched every episode since day one I do not remember some of these contestants. They need to vote Sandra, Rob and Parvati off as soon as possible. Their game play is too superior.

    I think the show codgers the players too much anymore. The best seasons were the early ones where they were literally starving. The memory of Gervase eating his first rat was priceless. Lately it seems like some players actually gain weight over the course of the show. I know that is not accurate but seems that way.

    Way too many creature comforts nowadays as well. Pillows, hammocks, tarps, rocking chairs and whatnot. I want to see these people suffer a little more.

    Just joined this thread. I can say I've seen every episode of Survivor.

    My kids have started watching it the last few years and now it is our big family show.

    I even had Boston Rob record a video for my kids:
