Sounds like a scary guy to be around at night while sleeping.

I think Outback is why they give them so much food now. They were starving and lathargic which made them very boring to watch as they just layed around.

Now I feel stupid, that is an Onion style site. I was 'working' while reading it so my BS detector was off.

Yup, it had me completely fooled (I was the one who posted the link). Sorry!

You must read The Onion to learn about current events. (Sorry, posted before seeing the other Onion comments)

BTW, there's a cool new Onion-style blog run by a military guy that's getting a lot of attention. They managed to fool Gizmodo into reprinting a fake story.

TV Guide Network is doing their preview show on Monday Sept 10th:

A sneak peek of the 25th season of 'Survivor' features interviews with Jeff Probst and the contestants. Also a look at the tribal-council set and a preview of a challenge.

Seems like at the end of every season I like Survivor a little less than I did before, but I keep coming back (partly because there's not much else on TV) and I'll be back this time.

I remember thinking Lisa Whelchel was pretty hot stuff on Facts of Life, and that was only 30 years or so ago.

What I remember of Skupin is that I thought he was a good player and felt bad that he had to leave the game. So if he comes back, good for him.

I'd be fine without having to watch Colton again.

I've watched every season but two, and I won't watch this one if Colton is on it.

And I'm a pretty casual baseball fan - "casual" meaning I'll have Angel games on while doing other things, I probably get to two games a year, and I follow other teams via SportCenter only - and I believe I would recognize Jeff Kent as someone famous instantly, though it might take me a day or so to place who he was.

Have the last two posters read the whole thread? They already announced who the returning players are. Colton is not on this season.

Same here, but I'm a little ahead of you. I started FF3X during the last season, and by the end, I was only watching Tribals. Then I quit.

I won't be back. I've finally had enough. Never missed an episode until this past season, but for some reason, I've finally decided I'm worn out. I kept thinking I would start back when it returned, but I don't seem to have any interest in it, so I guess I'm out.

Realistically, after what... 250,300? episodes, what's left to watch?

I actually only watch the challenges. I FF all camp life and the tribals, too, until the vote. If something at camp catches my eye I might stop and check it out but that happens pretty rarely anymore. If the vote seems very unusual or epic I might go back and watch a little of the tribal to see if I can see it coming. But not usually.
