    Sarah was the queen of pregaming before Gamechangers. Sandra also had quite a few alliances going.

    Sandra & Rob could be at a slight disadvantage on that front this year since they were away filming S39.

    OTOH the S40 winners might not know how and what Sandra and Rob did in S39 and decide they don't like them even more.

    Worked out well for Sarah. Not so great for Sandra. ;)

    I wasn't aware of these pre-game alliances. Where do you read about this stuff? I'm always wary of Reddit because of all the potential spoilers.

    I try to look after the season, but I have stumbled upon accurate boot lists by accident before. I visit Reddit or Sucks, but be careful, the all-winner season will be spoiled in its entirety. All returnee seasons always are. (Reddit usually marks each post with what it’s spoiling so it’s not too dangerous).

    From Reddit. Here’s a rundown of some of the pregame alliances that are expected for S40 based on a deleted tweet from Stephen Fishbach:

    Thanks for the spoiler tags. I try to avoid that kind of stuff if I can.

    Since this came up again, Richard Hatch had previously said that he wasn’t contacted, but now claims that he was and that he was dropped last minute with no reason given. The time that he now claims to have been dropped looks like it might’ve been around the time that Dan was removed from the game.

    Yeah, no way they're gonna let Richard run around naked these days.

    Plus, the way Hatch acted toward Sue in All-Stars would today be considered worse than anything Dan Spilo did, so I'm sure CBS just doesn't want anything to do with that.

    I'm gonna need to go back and re-watch some of these seasons. I barely remember Sophie Clark at all.

    Did I hear right last night that Season 40 is bringing back the Extinction Island twist? If so, I think I'll skip a season of Survivor for the first time ever.

    It is and ugh. I don’t know any spoilers about how it plays out, but it’s such a bad twist (And ended so badly last time) that I’m surprised they’re bringing it back. I guess they don’t want to lose any “stars” early.

    There’s also some twist with Survivor currency to spend on rewards/luxuries.

    I wonder if they’ll use Rob’s shelter in some way next season. It seems like a nice reward getaway.

    Without question, that's why they brought it back. I hope they at least tweak it a bit so that it's not possible for someone to spend virtually the whole game at the Edge of Extinction and then come back in right at the end and win it.

    This exactly. I'd imagine Boston Rob will have a huge target on his back and will probably go early. This keeps him in the game. I hate Redemption Island, but I get why they did it. Plus, wasn't this filmed before the negative fan reaction?

    Agree. I'd end it at the merge.
