    Then why would they sign up?

    I like the idea someone had of getting relatives of past Survivor players...that could be an interesting season...

    What would be even better is if they found people with absolutely NO connection to Hollywood. I'm tired of, in all these shows, them finding out of work actors, pretending that they are, students or waitresses or whatever and even pretending that they are from Powdunk, IA or something. Big Brother is the worst of them with this, but Survivor has had a few.

    Give me 18 actual NORMAL people and let them have at it.

    Why did people sign up the first or second season? Because it could be an adventure? That said, I don't think anyone auditioning for Survivor these days is not going to know what it is.

    It's probably hard to find normal people unless they are unemployed or retired.

    Do we know how many of the contestants applied to be on the show vs who were recruited?

    IIRC Sandra won 2 seasons without ever getting a single vote cast against her.

    I think most of the time, they actually ARE from Powdunk, IA... at some point in their lives. :)

    Like a couple seasons ago, they always showed Fabio as being from St. Louis, MO. He actually was from there, went to high school there, etc... but was definitely living in CA when he was cast.

    The way some of these knuckleheads play it sure seems as if they've never seen an episode in their life :cool:

    They should do a season where they bring back the players that made the stupidest moves. No one would be in a hurry to vote them out.

    Now that right there would be darned funny and could be pretty interesting too.

    Heck, even if they just went with the players that were voted out the fastest (like Zane from this season, as an example), it could be interesting since we'd hopefully get to see players that we only saw a little of in prior seasons.

    Lots of them were voted out first for a reason. Zane was about to quit on his own. Lots of the first out people, were very annoying or unstable. Put lots of them together, and it wouldn't be fun. I don't think we have had many personable first person outs.

    I'd like to see a season only of people voted out first or second.

    One of the people allegedly coming back next season was voted out first. I'm not sure how that qualifies this person as a "favorite."

    Maybe they were a favorite of the producers.

    Carter's look and mannerisms scream "stoner" to me.
    Looking back, I think he must have gotten high before his appearance at the reunion show. :p

    I'd watch.

    I thought Heroes v. Villains was Hantz's third time on.
