Great spoilers for anyone who's gotten a few weeks behind.

Meh, who wanted to see catty b*tches win anyway.

I guess you have to give him credit. I would have never guessed that show would still be on twelve years out.

By far the most disappointing season in its history.

The only reason to watch this season was medically evacuated when the game was getting good.

I stopped watching, I think it was after Johnny Fairplay's season. I know they kept putting Boston Rob on the show to try to get him to win. I don't know he was actually popular, but rather someone who knows to to stir the pot on the show.

Between Survivor and The Amazing Race, it seems half the contestants come from central casting (models, "actresses", whatever). I used to like watching the competition "reality" shows because I treated it like a game show, but instead, they fill it with pretty people who are usually useless otherwise or the most contemptible people they can find. Even the Biggest Loser has this problem. They find a bunch of fatties that are either crybabies or manipulative jackasses.

SPOILERS

This is the first season of Survivor I've ever seen. My girlfriend loves it so she would watch it while I was playing video games, so I actually ended up watching some episodes and getting into it. I couldn't stand that little twit and wanted him off the show so bad. I had my wish granted when his appendix got just as tired of him and burst. Then I realized it was the worst thing to happen to the show. Now I did feel sorry for his mom on the finale show. Probst asking her if that's how she raised her son (a judgemental racist), and her being so ashamed of him.

The only other memorable part was them blindsiding Kat, that was just too funny. She was such a stuck-up, shallow girl it was nice seeing her "fark me" face when she was voted off.

Try "Out of the Wild". It's what I thought Survivor was going to be. Nine fairly random people, no prize except the pride of making it to the end, very minimal help from the production crew, and really nasty nature. Imagine the contestants on Survivor making it three days on nothing but a handful of grubs they dug out of a rotting log.

Me too, I am a loyal fan. Love the show and game. I'm glad that Jeff called them out for their shiatty behavior, but I thought the Colton segment was WAY too long. I was actually embarrassed. Who cares about this dumb kid? It should have been as fast as Alicia's was and just move on. I get there wasn't much to talk about as far as strategy, but there are more interesting things to talk about than that d-bag.

Fairplay isn't allowed at any official Survivor events anymore -- there's no way Probst will ever have him back on the show.

How pathetic that Colton needed his mommy to come apologize to America for raising such a despicable human being.
 
2012-05-14 01:09:26 PM  
I never got the impression that Russell was out-and-out mean to the other players to their faces. He was very shrewd, and knew how to press people's buttons to get them to do what he wanted and maybe not directly likable...but if I remember things correctly, he knew to keep most of his personal feelings of other players to his off-camera asides.

Colton came off as an insecure spoiled rich kid who has been made fun of his whole life for who he was...and then when he attained a certain amount of control over others, he enjoyed the power of being able to throw insults at them the way he had been made fun of in the past. Like Bill (I think) said during the reunion show, there's things you say for the purposes of the game (which Russell excelled at), and then there's things you say that are just statements to hurt them, given the situation and who else is around.

I'm not sure how Colton managed to get to that position of ruling the roost, especially since the first few episodes were about Colton not having any friends, and then BAM! he's running the show. Also, Survivor isn't really kind to contestants who are jerks to the other contestants; they usually get booted quickly just for the sake of sanity around camp. I assume that there were too many guys like Jonas and Tarzan who were more than happy to play the "sure I'll vote for whoever you tell me to as long as it isn't me" game.
 
2012-05-14 01:12:31 PM  
Worst season ever. The men were stupid for being so indecisive early on. Either you help the women with food, water, shelter, fire, etc. to gain favor or you don't in order to make them weak and miserable for the challenges. They blew it.

I know editing has a lot to do with how we see things, but how could they think any of them would win against Kim in the finals? Alicia had a chance to make a move with Tarzen and blew that opportunity as well.

Christina, may not have been the brightest one out there, but after 39 days she was still looking pretty hot. Cleans up nice too.

I watch it (and periodically apply to be on it) but this WAS an awful season and it's true, most of them are all "cast" (as opposed to being 'real people') anymore.

It's disappointing because it was much more enjoyable when they were real people.

Having said that, if they ever pick me, I will be whoring myself out on Fark daily for the "Fan's Choice" vote!!

I just hope that Colton isn't one of the 3 past contestants with medical issues that are being brought back in the fall season.

I could not stand his nastiness or his arrogance, and I do not think that kind of behavior should be rewarded with another shot at the game.

Punish him by letting that display of ugliness be all that we ever see of him.

Seems to me that he is just a despicable person, not an entertaining villain you 'love to hate'. Big difference.

cman:

I don't. If I don't like a 'character' I enjoy the show more when they gone. But it's just a phrase that seems to get used a lot to describe villains in reality show competitions.

A good example would be Russell Hantz. I didn't like his personality, he annoyed me, and I was glad when he left. But almost every article I read about him called him a villain 'you love to hate'.

I can understand that some enjoy watching the show more when there is someone there 'stirring the pot' so to speak, so I guess that's what they are getting at.

But like what was said earlier, Colton wasn't being nasty for the sake of the game. He just is a bad person who enjoyed crapping on others.

My point is that even those who enjoy villains probably didn't enjoy what he brought to the game. Probst hinted at that last night, and the live audience seemed to agree.
 
2012-05-14 01:48:04 PM  
i remember about 13 years ago watching letterman and he announced his producer mark was leaving the show to start some survival game show. since then i've watched 10-15 episodes of survivor. not as bad as i thought it would be, but i simply cannot maintain interest in it.

You are probably right. I'm just holding out the slim hope that Probst will stick to these things he said previously:

Colton would have to really work hard to convince me to bring him back, and only because I don't think the audience wants him back," said Jeff, who as Survivor's executive producer, has a say in casting decisions.

and

But host and executive producer Jeff Probst, who has a say in these matters, has a surprising response: Colton won't be back.
"Russell you bring back. Colton, I don't think you do. I can't imagine celebrating Colton and bringing him back,"


But I think you're right, and I expect him to be there in the fall, or some other future season. Controversy gets ratings after all...

Here is my prediction for who they are bringing back: Mr "I fell into a fire in Australia", Black Russell (on the same season as Super Villain Russell), and that weird asian guy who thought he could filter water by just using a shirt

I'm not asian and didn't watch the show, but you can filter fresh water through a cloth folded multiple times. It's not my choice of water cleaning, but you can do it successfully. I prefer to use a cloth as a filter just to get out the heavy particulates, then place a clear container on a dark surface for an hour. The UV will kill anything in there even on a overcast day.

Russell was damn annoying. He did all kinds of annoying shiat to get screen time and obviously had no idea what it takes to actually win survivor. The only thing I liked when russell was on, was the temper tantrum he threw and how he started crying when he was eliminated from Exile Island.
 
2012-05-14 02:57:26 PM  
do they even put new people on there anymore?

I haven't watched Survivor in years, (or any CBS show for that matter really), but when I stumble across promos, it seems like they're always inviting the same 4 or 5 people back for another shot - Boston Rob, Rupert, the rest I can't name off the top of my head...

I felt the same way. It is revisionist history to say that Russell is just a nice guy who is shrewd at Survivor. He constantly berated everyone in the game, even his own allies. He also had no ability to take a suggestion or even the slightest form of criticism. There were several people he got voted off just because he felt like they were judging him or something. Classic over-compensator.

He was good at lasting in Survivor because he was a bully. He was bad at winning Survivor because he was a bully. Pretty simple.

Yea he was good at lasting at survivor because everyone else knew if you take him to the end, you are guaranteed to win. The fact that Russell pretty much had almost no chance of winning the game (he didn't get any votes for the million in the Heroes vs. Villians season) shows that he is kind of clueless when it comes to actual game play.

Even more telling was the fact that even after losing twice he still said he was the best player. Better than the winners. He seemed unable (or unwilling) to grasp the concept that to be the best player you need to get jury votes to win.

The jury vote is part of the game, but because he failed at that part, he rationalized it as not being a part of the game he cared about or some bs like that. I guess that's easier on the ego than admitting you aren't as good at something as you like to think you are.

One of my favorite Survivor moments was when they brought Navy Seal Rudy back for All-Stars. Other cast members were worried about drinking the water without boiling it, and he just said "Fark it" and drank it.

Then he told them a story about drinking water out of a river in 'Nam, with dead bodies floating in it.

"Infected" Knee in Fans vs Favorites, a few episodes before Gravedigger James

Penner would be one of the ones I'd be looking forward to. He took the evac hard, and it would give me an excuse to watch guilty pleasure Down Periscope again.
