Did anybody else watch this? I couldn't believe what morons those ex-Survivors were. They did worse than the normal Weakest Link contestants!

I had a good laugh at them voting out Rich first.

I think Anne Robinson missed a good joke: she should have made a jab at Sean about voting people off alphabetically.

Some of the questions that they missed:

Who was the 2nd president of the United States?

What's the 25th letter of the alphabet? (it took Joel 15 seconds to think of this one)


And did you see Susan's hair?

Did she get electrocuted or something prior to the show???

I think I got about 80% of the questions right. Those Survivors were pretty anemic when it came to getting them right. I can't believe Ramona missed the "Who sang 'Eye of the Tiger'?" question.

The problem with that is that they were under a CBS gag order, that they could talk about anything except Survivor!

When did this gag order get instated? I watched the E! Real Stories on Survivor last weekend, and most of the Survivor I crew was talking in depths about their experience on the island.

I gotta ask, when exactly did the Survivor contestants become 'celebrities'? I mean, what a bunch of hicks/morons. These people should be voted off TELEVISION, not just an island.

I watched it but it pissed me off. They voted people off in the exact opposite order of who was voted off first on Survivor. Ex: Richard, then Sue, etc. That takes the fun out of it.

Sue's ugly hairdoo could only be appreciated by Don King.

The gag order was only used during the Weakest Link show. Since they are on competing networks, CBS thought it would be "better" if they did not talk about Survivor. Just in case I guess. I can see where they are coming from.

I read it on IWON or something.
