Survivor: Nicaragua - Sept. 15th, 2010 **Season Premiere**



Survivor is moving from Thursdays back to the Wednesday time period where TV history was made when the show premiered 10 years ago. In the latest twist for the venerable reality competition — unjustly snubbed at the Emmys this year, though Jeff Probst earned his third in a row as host — the teams are divided by a generation gap. Tribe Espada members are all over 40, while Tribe La Flor contestants are all 30 or younger. Let the games begin.



Episode #1

Title:
Spoiler:
Young At Heart


Summary:
Spoiler:
The castaways are shocked to learn that they'll be divided into tribes of older players versus younger players; the older tribe is surprised that former NFL coach Jimmy Johnson will be with them; a castaway reveals a personal secret.

I plan to tune in despite my bitterness at the bias toward 30-somethings.

Looking forward to it.

I'm predicting that Jimmy Johnson will be out within 5 episodes.

Actually, there are no "thirty somethings." The old group has to be forties or older, and the young group, twenties.

I know. That's what I was trying to imply with my comment.

Re: Survivor: Nicaragua - Sept. 15th, 2010 **Season Premiere**

First time ever, i have a little inside info about one of the contestants and how they did. I feel like I have to share.

Don't look at the spoiler if you don't want to know. I have no idea how far they got, but the info I got gives a little insight on how they did:

Spoiler:
Holly is a client of a friend of mine's Dad who is an accountant. She told him she lost 22 lbs on the show, so I imagine she gets pretty far. Then again, if I lost 22 lbs, you probably wouldn't notice, so its all relative to how big she is to begin with I suppose.

Excited as always for a new season of my favorite television show. I figure it will be Jimmy Johnson going home tonight.

I don't think so. I think the man is charismatic enough that others will enjoy his presence at least until he's perceived as a threat. I think the older tribe will elect to vote off the weakest members first, or the downright annoying, so they can ensure physical wins against the younger crowd.

Johnson probably won't make it past the halfway point...people will enjoy his company but most will figure there's no way in hell he needs the million dollars, so he'll be booted.

Sounds like a good reason to bring him to the end.

I really like the move to Wednesday - it would have been an otherwise empty timeslot for me. Plus it no longer requires a move when March Madness comes around.

They're going to HALO drop him in mid-season to shake things up a bit.

On a serious note I can't say I'm overly thrilled with the casting this time around but I'll give it a shot, like always, and get sucked in against my better judgment, like always.

It will be nice to have a Russell-less game. It's been too long.

Isn't Russell a captain for next season?

I also just noticed that Colby is the host of the show Top-Shot on the History Channel. It took me a long time to figure out why he looked so familiar.

I think he's burrowed himself underneath a tree with the hidden immunity idol. It's the new twist! You find him, you find the idol.

Russell would have totally stole and hidden that girl's fake leg if he were in the game this season.
