Cochran - I sort of like him first time around. Everyone gave him crap for flipping on his tribe, but come on...he wasn't just at the bottom of the pecking order....they outright treated him like crap.

Brandon Hantz - seriously? He was anybody's favorite? ok.

Malcolm is cool to have back, though it's going to be another Russell Hantz situation, where nobody really knows quite what to expect.

As for the other 5, no clue who they are off the top of my head.

Spoiler:
Haha who could forget Phile ? (for that matter they should have brought back the guy who spelled it like that - sorry can't remember his name)

Agreed on not remembering the 5 women and even after using The Google only Dawn brings back specific memory, although I do vaguely remember Corinne being good comic relief

Sounds like it could be a good season and glad it's "first-time" returnees, not the same ol' re-treads

Spoiler:
I had this discussion with my son about "favorites" I don't it's actually favorites in the sense that we rooted for them as much as ones we liked to watch. That said, I could do without Brandon Hantz, but I think it might be fun watching Phillip blow up again and Cochran was an interesting survivor. Nice spoiler by Jeff asking Malcolm if he's play again when he already knew he did. Still, I'm totally tired of "All-Stars". I'd rather just newbies.

I would have thought Malcolm would have been more angry at Lisa and Skupin after they made that pact on the boat, but he sure seemed upset with Denise.
I think the head nodding is a Mars/Venus thing. In general, women nod their head to show that they hear what you're saying. Not that they agree, just that they hear. Men in general nod to show agreement.

Interesting to read some of the interviews. Malcolm was angry that he got out-played and he knew it. Even though he was angry that Denise was there and he wasn't, he still voted for her. I'm ok with that kind of angry in the jury. Go ahead and be angry, but pull up your big-boy pants and vote for the best player, even if that player is the reason you got voted out.

My DVR cutoff right before they talked with Abi. Was there much more after that? I'm wondering if. Can find it online or if its even worth it.

Regarding the above spoilers

Spoiler:
im not sure how they record these seasons and how long it takes them to air but you all are saying Malcolm has already been on another season? If so, he's got several months before another final show. Or are you all saying he was only asked to be on the next season but it has been filmed?

Read this only if you want to know a spoiler about the upcoming season (which may or may not be true):

Spoiler:
There are lists floating around that have been posted in this thread that say that Malcom is on the next season beginning in February. The would have been filmed and completed before the actual reunion show that was shown live this past Sunday.

Spoiler:
No, Malcolm is actually in the next season. Lately, they always film 2 seasons back to back (in the same location), and the 2nd season begins filming before the 1st season begins airing.

Russell Hantz did the same thing. He particpated in the 2 back-to-back seasons (heroes vs villians being the 2nd one), but because of the back-to-back nature, nobody he played with knew anything about him even though he was a returning player.

Ok thanks.

i haven't watched Survivor since maybe the third season other than this season. Wow, that must have been tough in him. Seems like your body/mind wouldn't hold up good under these type of conditions for that long of a time.

I think for Brandon Hantz's own mental safety, he should NOT EVER go back on Survivor.

I'm not unhappy that Denise won, but I was rooting for Lisa.

I really liked Penner...until the final tribal. Whoa, dude.

I'm also tired of fans/favorites/blah blah blah. It was neat the first time or two. Or three. We need all new players. It would be great if somehow they could find people who had no clue what Survivor was...

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.

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.

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.

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."

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.
