The DVDTalk Survivor Game Fall 2023 Edition

Welcome to the DVDTalk Survivor Game no. 28 for the Fall 2023 season!

The 90 minute season premiere is September 27 at 8 PM. In fact, all episodes this season will be 90 minutes!



The jist of the game: For an entry fee of just $5, everyone chooses one Survivor to latch on to before the start of the season. That is your guy. You root for that Survivor. If that Survivor ends up going all the way regardless of gimmicks, twists or pandemics, then YOU will win a $70 Amazon.com gift certificate. 100% of the entry fees will go to the prize fund.

Once again this season 2nd and 3rd place will receive $10 Amazon GCs!

General rules:

This will be the contest thread for the entire season.

We will be using the first to post method on draft night (Monday, Sept. 25, 9 PM EST). You may post 1 and only 1 name during the draft. This is strictly first-come-first-serve. Anybody posting a list will only have rights to the first name in the post. If that name has already been taken, you will need to post again.

Survivor Season 45 will see 17 new players and the return of Bruce Perreault who was medically evacuated in a previous season.

This season's 18 Survivors are...

Belo Tribe:
Brandon "Brando" Meyer, 23, Software Developer
Bruce Perreault, 47, Insurance Agent
Jake O'Kane, 26, Attorney
Katurah Topps, 35, Civil Rights Attorney
Kellie Nalbandian, 30, Critical Care Nurse
Kendra McQuarrie, 31, Bartender

Lulu Tribe:
Brandon Donlon, 26, Content Producer
Emily Flippen, 28, Investment Analyst
Hannah Rose, 33, Therapist
Kaleb Gebrewold, 29, Software Sales
Sabiyah Broderick, 28, Truck Driver
Sean Edwards, 35, School Principal

Reba Tribe:
Austin Li Coon, 26, Grad Student
Dee Valladares, 26, Entrepreneur
Drew Basile, 23, Grad Student
Janani Krishnan-Jha (stage name: J. Maya), 24, Singer
Julie Alley, 49, Estate Attorney
Nicholas "Sifu" Alsup,30, Gym Owner

Refer to the CBS web site or lwhy?'s Season thread for more information and profiles of this season's cast.

Post now if you want to play and I will contact you with my PayPal information by PM.

All payments must be made via PayPal by 3 AM Eastern time Monday Sept. 25. If you haven't paid by then, your spot may be released to another player.

Bopper Rule: If for whatever reason, an announced Survivor contestant that you drafted is replaced by a substitute during the show, you will get the substitute in place of your original pick. If multiple replacement players enter the game at the same time, the owners of the original players will share the replacement players and split any prize money.

Spoilers: You may not post spoilers about future events in this game thread either with or without spoiler tags. Spoilers may only be posted in the season discussion thread where standard forum rules apply. A spoiler is defined as anything that was not revealed during each week’s episode or in the preview of the next episode. Once an episode airs in the Eastern time zone, you may post anything that occurred in that episode. Violation of this rule may result in disqualification, loss of prize money and suspension from the next season’s game. However, one mild spoiler may result in a warning, but only once per player. Repeat violations may result in a life time ban from future games. The game moderators and artists will discuss enforcement on a case by case basis.

Please do not edit or delete posts during the draft, if your pick has already been taken or you were too early, you will need to post again.

Screen captures will be taken during the draft and anyone caught deleting or editing a post will be given the last pick as a penalty.

Please, please, please! Include your DVDTalk screen name and "Survivor Game" in a comment with your PayPal payment! This is necessary so that I can match people up with their payments. Also, please use the "Send money to a friend" option as this will avoid seller fees.

If the contest doesn't sell out, 2nd entries will be sold and drafted a half hour later.

The draft will be held Monday, September 25, 2023 at 9 PM Eastern (6 PM Pacific). The DVDTalk timestamp of your post determines validity. If you are too early, you will need to post again.

Good Luck!

Re: The DVDTalk Survivor Game Fall 2023 Edition

Draft night advisory: This season there are 2 Brandons, so if you want to draft one, you must include his last initial:
"Brandon D" or "Brandon M". Brandon Meyer also goes by "Brando", so simply posting that will also be acceptable.

Re: The DVDTalk Survivor Game Fall 2023 Edition

I'm sitting this season out. There was a leak of the winner last season (no one knew IF he was the winner, but the name had leaked), and it was pretty obvious when the draft started that a couple of players already had that info...so not only am I skipping the game this time, I'm avoiding the thread to see who got drafted first. It literally took all the fun out of watching last season.

Shoot I missed the drama!

Why can't you participate, come to the draft, write a name, and leave? If you're not first you still get the Quack. Heck throw a chip in and get the Quack anyway. You may win! Find out who you got and if you won after the winner is announced. Profit.

Re: The DVDTalk Survivor Game Fall 2023 Edition

i thought they do live announcements of the winner? maybe the contestants and staff will know the final 2/3 but I would think only a few people like Porbst would know the winner.

eta: i guess if the eliminated voters talked with each and counted up the votes, they could leak the winner

Re: The DVDTalk Survivor Game Fall 2023 Edition

The winner has been announced on site the past few years during the Pandemic and they have the reunion show right after the final tribal. I don't think they're going to have live reunions any more. I think it's cheaper to shoot it after the final tribal council.

I personally avoid spoilers like the plague. I don't want to know who wins. The only spoilers I read are casting spoilers for new seasons of The Challenge.

Yes, well this is the elephant in the room. Iíve been ignoring this in the hopes that last season was a fluke. However, if it happens again this season it may force me to end future games.

Been around here for over two decades and never done it before.

I am in if there is a spot left and I am all for a random lottery.

The idea has merit, but how could we make it work? We tried something similar in one of the early games and it didn't turn out well.

Also, I'm reluctant to make such a drastic rule change at this point.
