    Can't believe Gervase still can't swim.

    I was surprised at how many of the returning players I didn't recognize. For instance, I didn't even remember Aras, much less that he had won a previous season. Didn't remember Linda either.

    And as someone who wears his emotions on his sleeve, even I thought John was a little over the top about Candice. Suck it up dude. :)

    Still hate Colton. I thought for a second maybe he had changed, but nope.

    Totally shocked by his fiancé though. Seemed like a real good guy (and would have never pegged my gaydar either). Doesn't he know that Colton is a sociopath?

    Sorry. It was already announced and circulated prior to the season started, so I didn't even think about it. Will edit my OP.

    If I were aras I would have just pushed Gervase off that last obstacle on the challenge.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one that can't remember some of these people and I've watched every season. I don't remember Aras either and he won ! Must of been a bad season. I have to admit I tend to remember the women players more than the guys.


    Here's a crazy idea, instead of having returning players from different seasons I think it would be interesting to have all the players from the same season back. It would be interesting to see if they would end up close to the same order or if there would be a different final 2.

    I thought of a couple of returning survivors scenarios:

    1) Bring back only winners (a true All-Stars). Let them duke it out for the titel of ultimate Survivor :)

    2) Bring back only voted out first (and let them actually get a chance). There's an obvious problem with this scenario, most of the first offs were pretty annoying. Imagine bringing back the one who kept singing?

    Those ideas are pretty good. I wouldn't bring back anyone that didn't make it to final tribal council. Sometimes, depending on one's definition of best player, the best person doesn't necessarily win if people vote based on anything other than game play. Like some people focus more on social game, or winning comps, or loyalty.

    I like the second scenerio. Because they were voted off for various reasons first no one really knows who has game or what their strategy would be.

    Or bring back only runners-up? That way at least one of them could finally win. :)

    The title of "ultimate Survivor" belongs to Sandra.

    Two appearances, two victories.

    Nobody else comes close.

    Seriously.

    "We have four guys and a gay guy."

    No, jerkwad-- you have five guys.

    I'm not a fan of Kat and now that she's paired up with doofus BB player, even less so. And between the remaining players I just don't think there's sufficient eye-candy this season. :thumbsdown:

    (yes, I'm that shallow ;) )

    Someone said "too bad Rupert went to RI. He's good at building shelters". :eek: REALLY!?!?!? :eek:

    I'm actually optimistic about the 'gimmick' this season. It adds a dimension that's new and different. I'm curious how it will play out. Good job CBS. :up:

    But please... is every vote out going to be called a "blindside" from here on? Save that word for the real blindsides please! :mad:

    Add me to the list that had no idea who Aras was or that he won! I also did not remember Kat either.

    I'm not a big RI/EI twist fan, but I'm looking forward to this season. :)

    Well I'd say all of those with ONE win come close :)

    That said, I'd like to see her prove it against the other winners. I'm not convinced, if she played against all the other winners, she'd win.

    She defeated three other winners in Heroes Vs. Villains: Tom Westman, Parvati Shallow, and J.T. Thomas.

    At any rate, I'm not claiming she would win every possible season. I'm just saying that, because she is the only player ever to win twice, and because she has never lost, she has earned the title of Ultimate Survivor.

    I suspect that if she were to play a season against winners, she would be the first voted out, because she is the Ultimate Survivor.

    I just watched and I love this season. Sorry haters. I am not a student of the game. Episodes go in one ear and out the other. I have no idea who some of the vets are, despite having watched every episode. Who the hell is Aras? I am rooting for his bro -- overcoming that is an accomplishment.

    As for jerkwad football dude... I hate a man vs woman alliance. again.

    I liked it. Love that the loved ones and relatives are split. Also glad Rupert is one step closer to going home. Don't understand why Gervaise was in the swimming part. He couldn't swim in season 1 and still can't. I was happy to see him back and unfortunately he will probably be the first voted off his tribe. His niece got a raw deal. One of the puzzlers should have gone. Most likely Tina's daughter who was bragging about how great she is at puzzles (sorry markz :D ).

    The reason Rupert's Laura was voted out was because she was the obvious weakest looking player on her tribe. I don't think it had anything to do with Rupert.

    Now, why the vets voted out Candice instead of Tina, I'll never understand. They should know you don't get rid of physically strong players to start.
