Survivor 3 "Pick 'Em," Anyone?

Yahoo has a pick-em game up for the upcoming Survivor series. It's really simple: you basically wager points on the people you think are most likely to be voted out. If anybody is interested, we could set up a DVDTalk league:

Considering the incredible level of quality of this new Fall season so far, I'm debating whether I'll watch Survivor this time around. I was skeptical that the second show could create the same magic as the first, and I was proven wrong. A third time though? I'm not sure. If I do decide to watch, I'll definitely play along with you guys.

We still have that survivordeadpool team set up. I will keep playing there as well (if I will have time to play at all that is...)

Well, I had lots of fun last season spoiling or discussing the episodes. I guess I have more of a life right now, as I don't get nearly as much time checking the news and info on survivor.
I did catch tonight's preview though and it was interesting to have a quick look at the contestants. I don't remember the names, but there were some whose attitudes if they'll be like in the videos, will get them booted very quickly...

Well, voting time is near. We could use this thread to post our votes as well if you want. I will use spoiler tags for this message only (I generally hate spoiler tags).

Spoiler:

It looks from what I gathered at a couple of sites, that the general consensus seems to go towards Diane from Boran getting the boot.
In some preview of Ep.2 one can see the Samburu tribe handing over the immunity idol, presumably before IC2. The caps are not that clear, and I haven't seen the preview myself, but everyone seems to agree on this.
Diane looks like the prime target from Boran.
It is not clear what the motivational speach Lex gives is all about. Apparently someone fell asleep while being guard. If that's the case, that person would be more likely to be voted off...

It looks to me like the Samburu's are a stronger team but if their side is first I think it would be Frank orTeresa. If from Boran it would be Diane, Kim, Lex or Tom.

Havent seen anything though just from the web page

Gee. Groucho: Five bet on each guy on the show?? :-) You really split your bets there
I went for the risk it all approach although I was afraid Lex might go instead of Diane.I never suspected Clarence to be at risk, though.

Anyway, we've gotten off to a good start

The deadpool scores are not tallied yet, and I'm going to sleep now

Yeah, I guess that's why I'm never a big winner in Vegas. It was hard to figure out (without knowing hardly anything) what could happen before watching the episode. However, I did throw 15 points at Diane (as well as Tom, which was a mistake). She was also my pick in the Dead Pool.

Boran made the right decision in not voting off Clarence. Look what happened with Kel in Survivor 2.

True. I wasted some time yesterday morning, checking some boards and I learned that whenever there's an almost unanimous consensus, there won't be too much room for surprise. I went with that. Now, after watching the first episode I have some people I am 99% sure they will make it to the merge. The order in which the others are going to be booted is not clear however and it depends on who wins/looses IC's. That's where spoiling comes into play because otherwise the teams are quite even physically...

I agree, smart strategic decision on keeping Clarence. I like Tom, as being a straight person, but he has to be a bit smarter.
