The DVDTalk Survivor Game Spring 2024 Edition

Welcome to the DVDTalk Survivor Game no. 29 for the Spring 2024 season!

The 2 hour season premiere is Feb. 28 at 8 PM. The 2nd week will also be 2 hours, and then 90 minute episodes after that.



The jist of the game: For an entry fee of just $5, everyone chooses one Survivor to latch onto 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 $80 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 (Tuesday, Feb. 27, 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 46 will see 18 new players stranded on the beautiful islands of Fiji.

This season's 18 Survivors are...

Ben (Musician)
Bhanu (IT Quality Analyst)
Charlie (Law Student)
David (Slot Machine Salesman)
Hunter (Science Teacher)
Jemila 'Jem' (International Brand Mentor)
Jessica 'Jess' (Software Engineer)
Kenzie (Salon Owner)
Liz (Marketing Strategist)
Maria (Parent Coach)
Moriah (Program coordinator)
Q Burdette (Realtor)
Randen (Aerospace Tech)
Soda (Special Education Teacher)
Tevin (Actor)
Tiffany (Artist)
Tim (College Coach)
Venus (Data Analyst)

Refer to https://tvline.com/lists/survivor-se...bs/venus-vafa/ 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 EST Monday Feb. 26. 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 Tuesday, February 27, 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 Spring 2024 Edition

Draft night advisory: This season has a contestant named Q Burdette. If you wish to draft him, keep in mind that forum rules require a minimum of 3 characters in a post, so you must include his surname during the draft.

Also, be sure to note that this season's draft will be on Tuesday the 27th instead of Monday. This is due to a personal conflict I have on Monday.

Once again this season an anonymous donor contributed $10 to the pool, so the winner will receive $80 this season.

Re: The DVDTalk Survivor Game Spring 2024 Edition



We've been trying to think of a perk for our new Five Time Winners Hall of Fame which JuryDuty is now the charter member.

This is NOT official yet, it's still only a proposal:

Our idea is that anyone that enters the Five Time Winners Hall of Fame will receive the first pick in the next season's draft and can post it in this thread at any time. This would only be a one time benefit. Also, if the Five Timer wants to buy a 2nd pick in the leftover draft (if there is one), then only the last pick would be allowed (AKA the Quack play).

We welcome feedback on this idea if anyone wants to offer any.


Nevermind, the only perk 5 time winners will get for now is the right to use the 5 timers robe avatar.

I'm back again. I personally don't think anyone that's won five times needs any perk or advantage.

I'm gonna keep playing until I win one of these. Though being the first contestant to have both his players eliminated in a single episode was kinda historic in its own right.

You deserve your 10 bucks back for that.

I am in! Since I am still new to this, do I send the money now or later?

I assure you, it's only from frequency of play and the fact that I almost always play two characters, not from any great IQ!

Re: The DVDTalk Survivor Game Spring 2024 Edition

Hey! I KNOW Liz, the "marketing strategist"--she's the second one in. We've hired her a couple times for email strategy for our business. (She's really more of an email strategist than general marketing...)

Hoping I get her just because I know her...so you'd better be ready lwhy?--I'm going to try and hit that enter button faster than you on draft night.

We actually interviewed her on our writing podcast about 4 months ago and she said NOTHING!!!! Now I know where she was when she said she went on a work haitus last year...she was in Fiji with Probst!

Well, based on this development, I will have to forget about the Five Time Winners perk.

Of course she’s sworn to secrecy, so good luck with her if you draft her.

Agreed, for now Five Timer Winners will only get to use the Five Timers Robe avatar.

Email strategist? Is that a fancy name for a spammer?

LOL actually, just the opposite. She basically helps businesses develop an email strategy that nurtures their followers and actually gets them off your list if they're not interested in your message.

For us, she got us to cut our email list in about half (which was painful)--but nearly tripled our open and click-thru rates. She definitely knows her stuff. She's big on being authentic and nurturing your customer base.

Err...that said...most "email strategists" are probably spammers LOL It's one of those self-assigned titles methinks!
