The spring edition of SURVIVOR will feature the return of one of the game's greatest pairings: Fans vs. Favorites. Ten ultimate SURVIVOR fans will have the chance to prove they have what it takes when they take on 10 of their favorite players from the past. Dropped on the exotic Caramoan Islands, the 20 castaways will be divided into two tribes of 10: "The Bikal Tribe," made up of former players deemed favorites, and "The Gota Tribe," comprised of ultimate fans of the game. The Favorites may have an edge because of their experience, but they also have a big target on their backs. Meanwhile, the Fans, although inexperienced, can draw on their extensive knowledge of the game to give them an advantage. Who will prevail when these tribes collide and the castaways vie to outwit, outplay and outlast one another for the title of Sole Survivor and the one million dollar prize?

Unrelated news. Jeff Probst's talk show was officially cancelled today.

why do these tv suits really think giving Probst a talk show would work? Looking forward to this season though.

Djariya, I'm officially relinquishing the Survivor thread starting to you sir. You're always on top of your game in a way my laziness will simply not allow.

Someone here will have to do the Survivor thread for the next 2 weeks. Going to be out of the country on vacation and will have limited Internet access.

what a waste of a slot. Why even invite someone back like that. Jeebus. Survivor was really scrapping the bottom to come up with her as a "favorite" for all of 2 seconds.

I knew she was dead meat after making that statement. Hopefully Jeff remembers and makes her eat the stone at the reunion.

Hopefully the "Cool Kid's Table" alliance isn't as douche-y as they struck me in the first ep. Though we saw this same mistake in the "One World" season - a minority alliance getting cocky and not realizing the majority can see what they're doing.

They're definitely setting themselves up. Especially the clear couple. How in the world do people like that hone in on each other on day one?

Re: Survivor: Caramoan -- Season Premiere -- "She Annoys Me Greatly" -- 2/13/13

So by populating the "favorites" team with a whole slew of strategic dum dums who were largely more "famous" for their blunders, they've really stacked the deck this year.

I didn't remember Francesca when the show started, and I still don't remember anything about her. I do remember Phillip mispronouncing her name though.

Still too early to get a read on any of the new people. On the "favorites" team, the only actual favorites I have are Malcolm and Brenda, who unfortunately appear to be on opposite sides. I also always liked Corinne if only for her completely owning her bitch on wheels attitude.

Dawn has an elastic face, like Jim Carrey did in the 1990a.

Re: Survivor: Caramoan -- Season Premiere -- "She Annoys Me Greatly" -- 2/13/13

As usual, I have very little memory of anyone. There was just no reason to bring back a Hantz and to call him a favorite. I know the word has little meaning to the producers of the game, as none of these people were particularly well liked by fans (to the best of my recollection), but Brandon just makes it seem like Team Survivor isn't trying at all any longer to even pretend they want the best cast possible.

I just kept hearing Jeff say, "Malcolm...Reynold(s)" and kept having Firefly flashbacks.

I typically don't have a favorite for several episodes, but I definitely was relieved the eye candy wasn't thinned out this soon by having them send Andrea home. I do remember her, but have no recollection of her game-play. She certainly appeared to be good at the physical parts of the game and not just a wimpy quitter, so I'm surprised that I can barely remember how she played the first time around.

Yep. It was a given she was gone as soon as she put that out there.

I seem to recall Probst talking her up as being a really good player who we never really got to know. They really struck out with casting her again.

Rob's strategy, Phillip's idiocy, and Matt's religion dominated the edit that year. We never really learned all that much about Andrea.

Survivor needs to change up the editing a bit.

The Fran foreshadowing was obvious to anyone who's watched survivor. And without any Phillip craziness scenes, it was clear he was never in any real danger and that was the fairly obvious red herring edit of the week. Even Probst reading out the votes seems predictable - if it's a split vote it seems like he will read out the person not going home a couple of times; as soon as he read ANdrea's name out three times I was thinking, "well she's safe"

It seems like Francesquaw was brought back as a sacriificial lamb so there was no risk of losing anyone of the players right away that Probst wants to ride to at least the merge. Also an opportunity for Jeff to play up Phillip craziness at tribal.

So how long before Philip or Malcom "find" an idol? Or maybe Cochoran as he got a pretty extensive edit it seemed?

As cray cray as many of the favorites are they are stacked physically. Assuming we don't get a shuffle anytime soon I would be kind of surprised if they didn't start dominating the challenges.

at Franchestsqua getting voted out 1st yet again.

Kind of a meh opening episode.

at Jeff introducing Malcolm and none of the fans knowing who the fuck he was. Obviously since the season was shot before his season even aired.

I think she was a great choice and she filled her role perfectly.
