Title: Survivor
Post by: Nickito on February 02, 2018, 07:22:05 PM
Someone deleted the other one for some reason so I'll remake it

Hyped for Season 36! Too bad the videos are region locked so I know nothing but oh well at least I can actually watch it

What I do either follow their Twitter or Facebook or just YouTube search it, some channel is bound to have re-posted it.

Okay, I wanted to make a list that I will add to until I get 20.

List of people who deserve another chance one way or another
Erik (S16, S26) Seriously, evacuated Day 36 :(
Cirie (S12, S16, S20, S34) Doesn't need an explanation, just bring her back for a 5th time and give the million
Russell Swan (S19, S25) Evacuated and Matsing, what else do you want?
Roark (S35) I guess being a healer and that switch just ruined her chances when Soko went to Tribal Council.
Terry (S12, S31) Evacuated because his son was ill on Day 19... He could've gone further I think, and in Panama Danielle voted him out :(

Candice wasn't robbed in season 13 though was she?


Title: Re: Survivor
Post by: Nickito on February 08, 2018, 07:45:46 PM
I wouldn't call her robbed
Candice basically caused her alliance to lose both in CI and HvV. This meant in BvW, no one wanted to align with her. They took the opportunity to vote her out. I have no idea why Kief has her on his list tbh


Title: Re: Survivor
Post by: Ducky Momo on February 09, 2018, 12:48:32 AM
Nothing happened to her in Cook Islands, but in Blood vs Water they said it was because "they don't know about her" and she did great on Redemption Island, I just think she has the potential to go far.


Title: Re: Survivor
Post by: Nickito on February 09, 2018, 04:54:39 AM
That was a lie to save face. No one wants to say "you are a terrible player who ruins any allies' chances of winning"


Title: Re: Survivor
Post by: Ducky Momo on February 09, 2018, 03:31:30 PM
Meh, I dunno, I guess I just personally like Candice and would like to see her go far in one day. She is off the list for now.


Title: Re: Survivor

Added Roark and Terry

I might add Francessca to the list.

I am also going to do my personal Ranking on Survivor Seasons, then on winners and see how each match up.

At this point no one but Dom or Michael has a chance
Steph and Brendan had no dead giveaways aside from the whole being voted out part though

Bgah one month until the next season!!!!!!


Title: Re: Survivor
Post by: Nickito on August 27, 2018, 01:48:22 PM
I hope it's actually good this time
Ghost Island had a good finish but getting there was torture. HHH was the exact opposite. It was an amazing season until the last 30 min which are easily the worst last 30 min of any season ever. The last season I enjoyed the whole time was MvGX, hopefully this one is good too.


Title: Re: Survivor
Post by: Kiefer Masala on August 27, 2018, 01:50:26 PM
It sounds promising, maybe no switches, first time since South Pacific maybe. The tribes suggest they'd stay. Ghost Island was ruined by Kellyn forcing her Naviti Strong on everyone and then everyone falls for it. Laurel also was an incredibly bad player.


Title: Re: Survivor
Post by: Nickito on August 27, 2018, 01:53:30 PM
No, Ghost Island was ruined by the editing. The season couldn't decide if the main story was "Will Wendell and Domenick survive?" or "Domenick and Wendell can't be beat". If they'd just built up any other contenders aside from Michael, it would be a much better season. Sebastian's plan to take out Dom was actually pretty solid, but no one thought he had a chance of succeeding. The firemaking could have been tense, but no one thought Angela could've won. There was no suspense between Brendan's elimination and finale night, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but the show acted like there was.


Title: Re: Survivor
Post by: Kiefer Masala on August 27, 2018, 01:55:58 PM
Also Ghost Island was underwhelming... It didn't appear in two episodes. The episode I enjoyed the most was actually the first one and the double elimination. After the Final 8 it kinda sucked... FTC was cool

Ghost Island was wasted and was basically a Game Changers remake with newbies


Title: Re: Survivor
Post by: Nickito on August 27, 2018, 01:58:45 PM
Ghost Island was executed fairly well imo, I prefer what we got to having a new advantage each episode.

The pre-merge was definitely better than the post-merge. I'd say I enjoyed the merge episode the most as a standalone episode although focusing almost entirely on 3 characters really didn't help move the season forward.


Title: Re: Survivor
Post by: Kiefer Masala on August 27, 2018, 01:59:45 PM
It was a decent season... But not amazing.

I am actually looking forward DvG


Title: Re: Survivor

Australian Survivor: Champions v. Contenders is definitely looking to be an amazing season, if you're into Survivor, I'd definitely recommend catching up and watching live! Much better than Ghost Island and currently there is no indication at all who the winner may be, making it much more unpredictable!


Title: Re: Survivor
Post by: Kiefer Masala on August 28, 2018, 08:40:08 AM
I would watch if I could

Not surprised Hantz got eliminated so early.
Bloody hell you found the Legacy Advantage screen shot this and send to me to prove!


Title: Re: Survivor
Post by: JakeZ on August 31, 2018, 04:15:55 AM
I seriously don't know what Angela's gameplan was if she was to go into FTC... at least her losing caused for some suspense at FTC because if she beat Wendell at fire-making Dom wins 10-0-0.

Had Angela beat Wendell, the editing of the season would completely shift, so we can't really see how interesting/boring it would've been in that case.

Angela might have had a few Naviti Girls who were too salty to vote Dom

I'd like to think that Kellyn, Chelsea and Desiree could see that she played an awful game.


Title: Re: Survivor

Angela was probably hoping that the jury would be upset with Dom/Laurel. I mean she was half right.


Title: Re: Survivor
Post by: JakeZ on September 01, 2018, 01:00:30 PM
Yeah. She didn't do half bad at the firemaking challenge too, I'll give her props on that one.


Title: Re: Survivor
Post by: Kiefer Masala on September 02, 2018, 02:25:54 AM
The worst for me was that swap at the very start, that ruined the game entirely and they didn't even split into 3 at the 18, that was pointless. Malolo were them always down by one to Naviti.


Title: Re: Survivor
Post by: JakeZ on September 02, 2018, 05:42:35 AM
I mean the swap kinda screwed the game of key players that could've went all the way like Stephanie, Brendan and James.

Yeah, this is an amazing season. I really hope the second episode keeps this up, but I think we got lucky from the medevac which gave us a lot more personal content rather than strategic.

Lyrsa survived <3


Title: Re: Survivor
Post by: Dorothea on October 05, 2018, 04:48:04 PM
The second episode was just as great as the first!

Some thoughts:
- Lyrsa and Elizabeth working together makes me so happy, it really feels like true Survivor, two completely different people from different walks of life working together
- Natalie "Self-Aware" Cole is one of the most fun castaways in years. She is very entertaining and she has zero filter, which I think is something very refreshing, as she's so real. I really hope she makes it to the endgame so we get more Natalie content!
- I think that Kara was pretty smart by even slightly distancing herself from Dan, I think that being seen with him is very, very bad for her game, so good on her!

My current contenders to win:
- Kara
- Elizabeth
- Carl
- John

Lyrsa survived <3
I loove Lyrsa! I got to chat with her on Discord and she's just as great out of the show as she is on the show.

I heard that the episode was leaked, haven't been spoiled yet.

This isn't towards you Nickito, just in general, please don't spoil in this topic just in case people who don't want to be spoiled before the episode airs want to chat in this topic!


Title: Re: Survivor
Post by: Nickito on October 10, 2018, 07:06:05 PM
Man what an episode, if every episode is like this it's on course to be one of the best of all time!
I sorted the remaining 17 into 3 winner tiers, based off of how likely I think they are to win.
Top Tier: Angelina, Christian, Kara, Nick

Mid tier: Alison, Carl, Davie, Elizabeth, Gabby, John, Lyrsa

Low tier: Alec, Bi, Dan, Mike, Natalia, Natalie


Title: Re: Survivor
Post by: Dorothea on October 13, 2018, 12:38:47 PM
I decided to make my own version of that tier thing, but it's just a mix of winner likeliness and some thoughts on their edits! Does contain spoilers about the most recent episode and someone being ruled out because of something that people may not want to know!
Top Tier:
Angelina (I was debating between top-tier and mid-tier, and I think at the moment Angelina is top tier. She was shown to make part of the move towards Jeremy, which is very good as many others were contradicted in the past episode.)

Carl (Carl has had a steady flow of content, and I think that confessional after tribal council really kept his chances steady. I don't see him as a number 1 contender, but I think that he has a decent shot at winning the game.)

Elizabeth (Similar to Angelina, I was debating this one, but I think I'll stick with Elizabeth up here. Her last episode wasn't too great, but Wendell from last season had a terrible second episode, so it isn't out of the ordinary for winners to have a bad episode or two. I think her biggest problem is that Mason-Dixon got all the credit for something she layed the groundwork for, which isn't that great. However, Elizabeth is someone to watch for a potential winner.)

Kara (Kara has a real good shot to win this game. She has been shown to be at the top of the duo of herself and Dan and I think that she can even better without him, if she isn't swapped with him. I'm looking forward to see what she does in the game, and I think she has a really good shot at winning the game.)

Mid Tier:
Christian (I feel that Christian suffers from the opposite problem of Alec and Alison, he's too visible. He feels so out there and I really don't think we're going to seem him as the winner, but I can definitely see him as an endgamer.)

Davie (Davie has a pretty positive edit so far in this game, and that's wonderful, but I don't think we've had too much to warrant him as a winner, but I think he makes the merge for sure.)

John (I think John's edit is a pretty good one so far. I think this upcoming episode will really solidify whether he is a real contender, or if he'll stay in the mid-tiers. Although I'm putting him here not to clog up the top-tier, I think he has a decent shot to win the game.)

Lyrsa (I think Lyrsa being invisible is much worse than Elizabeth this past episode. She was almost voted out and survived by a vote, and we heard not a single word from her. Not her thoughts on the tribal or other people on the tribe. It was like she vanished after being a decent presence in the past two episodes. I hope the swap revives her, but if she continues down this path, it could spell trouble.)

Nick (Nick is another interesting person. His first episode was so over the place, one second he was shown as being lazy and scheming, and then we get personal stories and then we have Lyrsa and Carl gunning for him, only to be saved by the evacuation. These past two episodes his edit has shifted from mixed to more positive, and it's very confusing. Nick feels like a post-merge blindside rather than a winner to me.)

Low Tier:
Alec (Doesn't have great visibility and considering how he was banned from the reunion, that pretty much rules him out.)

Alison (Alison really feels like a mid-merge boot for sure, she hasn't had the support in the past 3 episodes to be a contender to be a winner. If she does content into the swap, I do believe that she could be bumped up to mid-tier.)

Bi (Bi has had a pretty odd edit, one second she brushes off Gabby and then she all of sudden feels betrayed by Gabby? I think there has been some stuff we haven't been shown, but Bi's edit has been so odd, I don't think she has too much of a chance, especially with her injury.)

Dan (Dan has made the fatal mistake of getting into a showmance. While Kara seems to have some kind of benefit, everything for Dan is in a pretty bad spot. He had a target on his back and many people now know about his idol, which is not good going into a swap.)

Gabby (Gabby has had a TERRIBLE first three episodes. From her being nervous, to being thrown under the bus left, right and center last episode, I don't think we're gonna see Gabby being the winner. She screams to be either swap-bleeped or a zero-vote finalist. We'll have to see where she ends up though.)

Mike (Mike has had a pretty odd edit. He has been shown a lot, despite not really having any solidified bonds on his tribe, outside of Jeremy who was just voted out. I really don't think he's going to win, especially because he's known and they're not going to give this guy money, even if he makes it to the end.)

Natalia (A majority of Natalia's edit has been about Natalie and that's very concerning. We don't know too much about her, other than that she hates Natalie, which overall isn't good for her chances.)

Natalie (As much as I love Natalie and her Natalie Napalms, I think it's near impossible for a Natalie win. Her edit has just been so negative and although her edit has some longevity, I can't see her winning, but I do see her going far.)

Really Nick... (as in the player). Lyrsia was in no way a threat to win- a great person to try to take to the final 3. Angelina is surely gonna flip, and now they're gonna land at the bottom of the merge. Hoping for Christian though its gonna be hard for him, don't have high hopes for him unless he wins immunity.

Also rip the streak of blindsides I know what she said at the end but come on she knew she was receiving votes.

This season is amazing
Obviously it wasn't quite a blindside but it was left more uncertain to the viewers than the past few episodes so it balances out


Title: Re: Survivor
Post by: Kangablue on November 08, 2018, 03:49:34 PM
12-1.... really? I mean its not a bad idea I hope the alliance of 6 comes through.

Also dude, people like Angelina gotta go. I mean I think I'll like her in the end, but seriously- she is a giant threat to win this game much more than Elizabeth- she was right about Elizabeth!

I have high hopes for Nick, more than for Christian, actually- everyone is talking about voting Christian out but not about voting Nick, someone whos flipped twice and would do it again to save himself- Nick has pretty good chances as long as Christian stays in the game long enough, as a bigger target to go after than him.


Title: Re: Survivor
Post by: Nickito on November 08, 2018, 03:51:06 PM
Only Kara, Christian, Gabby, and Nick really have a shot at this point tbh

I'd say that even Christian doesn't really have a shot. He feels like a red herring, like it's too obvious if he ends up winning.


Title: Re: Survivor
Post by: Kangablue on November 14, 2018, 08:52:50 PM
What a tribal I so thought Dan wouldn't play it. Good thing he did he wasted it! But wow. no matter what happens for the rest of this season, this tribal council will go down as one of the best.

Even more clever on the David's tribe side. All the Goliath's voted Christian, nothing odd there. But Davie, Nick, and Christian on the David tribe voted for John, while only Gabby and Carl voted for Angelina. Even if Dan didn't play his idol on Angelina, John still would of been to go home instead of Angelina, a better choice.

If only Dan didn't win immunity and Angelina still didn't win immunity. Then, it would of been possible for Dan to play an idol an Angelina, and then get voted out with his seccond one in his pocket. Nevertheless, still a great tribal. Gotta be happy with Christian and Nick's fake reactions at tribal council when Davie played the idol.

Also, can someone tell me what this says? Lol.

As a side note since I saw this topic, Australian Survivor started airing here a few weeks back and it's frustrating as, every time you go for someone to win, they end up getting sent home! I'm aware that the season is finished but I'm not gonna spoil it for myself XD
I think the first episode next week is the merge so I have that to look forward to at least

Well then, I didn't expect David to be doing better than Kelley- sad that Kelley got injured. I hope she lasts for longer though. Also worried about Aubry on the yellow tribe, I would much rather Joe go than Aubry.

Also if Wendy wins due to the first person in preview logic, that would be something- hard to believe at this point though I won't write it out She could definitely float though in the tribe, if say, if blue looses and the tides change to being against someone else with the whole Kelley blindside plan in place.

Hoping this seasons stays ok to good, staying optimistic for now.

Please please please don't be a bad season, theres still time for it to pick up. I'm actually rooting against Wentworth at this point- I like Rick/David though. If Manu looses again and Wendy goes home, this season is gonna have some problems.


Title: Re: Survivor
Post by: Nickito on February 28, 2019, 09:06:55 AM
so far this season kind of sucks, the returnees are all shells of their former selves

Title: Re: Survivor
Post by: Kangablue on March 04, 2019, 07:31:16 PM
Well, theres a 100% chance that Manu win the next immunity challenge, all from the previews on the SurvivorOnCBS youtube.

In this preview (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arF5ydVkGmY), at 0:25, with the picture of Wendy, you can see the chicken reward in the background. This is definitly from an immunity and reward challenge, as the challenge is previewed in this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o2KZLgeVb48).

Good job CBS! Now please please please lets have an interesting tribal council. Though I must also point out that I'm surprised Ron didn't steal the chickens, wonder how he'll use the Advantage Menu if this is his last episode being able to use it.

LOL. Nevermind.... only reward challenge. Half right.


AND THANK YOU- a blindside! And you got rid of Chris, the guy who I didn't like anyways and seemed like Ken from Millenials vs Gen X, very surprising choice but a choice I'm happy with. Hopefully the tribe swap keeps up!


Though... Chris was pretty stupid here. He could of just told Wardog that Rick and David were the ones planning this and flip it against them- that would of been a good move. Instead, well, we saw what happened... still a more fun episode than the first two.


Title: Re: Survivor

:( And there goes one of my favorites. Please come back from edge of extinction Rick. Was not expecting that at all, thought it was gonna be Lauren.

What a 'tribe swap.' Lol. I really wanted Joe to get out just so that Lesu has a better chance of not going to tribal... now they could be going to a lot more tribals- looking pretty bad for David. Though, there is the Lesu idol somewhere, hoping David finds it.


Title: Re: Survivor

This season is kind of losing but it was refreshing how they didn't even try to pretend the first boot of that episode wasn't going.

Entertaining episode, not sure it was the right decision for Julia, Gavin, and Victoria and not at all what I was expecting- I was expecting Ron or Eric to go, but to idols. Interested to see how the next episode shakes up, this seems like it's opened up the game.

Entertaining episode, not sure it was the right decision for Julia, Gavin, and Victoria and not at all what I was expecting- I was expecting Ron or Eric to go, but to idols. Interested to see how the next episode shakes up, this seems like it's opened up the game.

Ok uh what just happened? How to go from swing vote to target 101, I guess, that tribal was something. I'm ready for Aurora to be an outcast that lasts for a while as there is no reason to target her but nobody really is close to her at all.

I love the idea of Victoria and Rick working together I like both of them a lot.

Also Julie = loosing finalist perhaps?

Time to watch that tribal council again once I can to figure out what actually happened.

I think that Julie is gonna be the losing firemaker.

I feel like the winner is almost certainly one of the Lesu 5. I'm leaning towards David but I don't know for sure.

Well then that just happened. Did not expect her of all players to go home with an idol- I'm not exactly sure what Wardog's plan is to get to the end though, lol. That episode felt really rushed though, I'm hoping that the episode last week wasn't the last good episode- TAR was much more entertaining. Rooting for Rick, though his chances aren't high.

Though I must say I think theres an ok chance of the winner being who comes back from extinction just because so many people's edits are flawed at the moment. Also considering with the final 4 fire making challenge that the person only needs to win the Final 5 immunity to have a chance at the Final 3, I think theres a good chance of the person from EoE making the finale and potentially winning.

What a terrible ending and winner... Devens > Chris by far. I mean, I was rooting for Lauren until she played her idol on Chris.... apparently coming back from extinction and having time to bond with all the jury members in a non-game setting (or at least, detached from the game) ISN'T as big of a threat as Chris is. Like um, Lauren, what were you thinking?

I did actually like Rick, despite his constant idol finds over the last few episodes- blame that more on production- I liked Rick's personality from the beginning and he was still one of my favorites. I really wish he didn't give that idol half to Chris... not sure what he was thinking there. Not that I wanted an extinction returnee to win, but there was nobody else left at that point.

The thing that bothers me with Chris is that I fail to see a world where Chris wins if he DOESN'T come back from Edge of Extinction- from what we saw, he had a pretty bad social game (enough to be voted out third!) and if it wasn't for the idol at F5, would of been gone. I mean, he had a good enough social game to get 9 votes so maybe I'm wrong, but I just can't see Chris doing well if not for the twists and advantages that gave him the win.

Speaking of which, what in the world was that idol that Chris got anyways. Like... at F13, giving an idol that only works after one tribal council to the first EoE returnee worked, but the seccond one at F6? I mean, the idol itself was very unlikely to be played, and wouldn't of been if either Rick had not given the half back or Chris had been voted out in 6th place like he should of been, but still.

So yeah that season was pretty terrible after DvG being so good, it was such a let down. Hoping that next seasons better...

Post by: Oofis on May 17, 2019, 11:19:41 PM
After Rick Devens lost the fire making I could kind of tell it was gonna be a stupid ending but I wasn't expecting such a big victory for Chris, like Victoria clearly said she was gonna vote for Gavin when she was voted off and then she didn't even do that?? Obviously Rick was the only one who actually did enough to deserve the win but Gavin clearly had better gameplay than Chris in most if not all ways so I don't understand why the jury didn't pile the votes on him

Only reason I can think of is because Chris had 28 days to get to know the jury better and the jury chose familiarity over quality

Victoria said in post-game press that she did it for them to vote out Gavin next as she believed he had something to do with her elimination as there was only one vote for Chris, despite the plan being 2-2-2. Of course, that didn't end up working, but that explains it.

ISLAND OF THE IDOLS EPISODE 1 TALK:

I'm sorry, what just happened. XD I was competly convinced Elaine was going home... wow. That vote came out of nowhere- I mean, we saw the numbers for it, but I didn't think it was actually gonna happen. Happy for Elaine- expecting her to make it far if she got that much of a story and not the first boot. Very satisfying to see him go!

Also Elizabeth made up an extremely dumb lie I am expecting Elizabeth to be gone very soon... like you realize anyone else that goes to Island of the Idols is gonna know you lied? Easily going to backfire.

I really, really enjoyed this premiere! I think the removal of the marooning/beginning really benefited this season as we got to start knowing people and dynamics from the get-go rather than like 10-15 minutes in.

I really love most of the cast this season, specifically Kellee (mayo-hating queen <3) along with all of the women this season, they really knocked it out of the park this episode (even Noura, krazy kween <3).

The Island of the Idols portion felt a bit long but it was enjoyable and Sandra/BRob are not instrusive at all, and I love their place in tribal.

I'm ok with Ronnie going over Elaine or Vince, but he could've been an interesting villain this season... we shall see where the season goes next episode! With an unhappy Aaron on Lairo and a Noura meltdown on Vokai, who knows what's going to happen. Also, I really hope Kellee is okay after seeing her crying in the NTOS segement.

They get to secretly watch over from a tall hut thingy (their window is barred so the contestants can't see them and give their insight (albeit to each other) about what's going on during the tribal, who they like, etc.

Title: Re: Survivor
Post by: Kangablue on October 02, 2019, 07:20:52 PM
WELL THEN that I was not expecting. Not sure if in a good way or a bad way- another blindside! I did not think based off of Episode 1 that Molly would go- I was really hoping that would backfire on Lauren as the move was incredibly dumb and way too early. Not that I like Jamal at all and obviously you shouldn't talk to the people on the bottom like that as Jamal's confessional made me wish he was going home, but still- too fast too soon there for sure- most definitely a wrong move, saving two outsiders that don't really care about you- while I'm excited from a drama perspective, how dumb this move was bothered me.

Also Tommy I don't hate you but you're in too much power to be likable right now I'd rather root for Jack than you. XD Missy and Tommy seem like the most obvious winners, though I'd say after that episode the winner is on Vokai cause uh, Lairo went full invisible- what even is that. That's my biggest complaint- seems like the next episode will make it better though.


Title: Re: Survivor
Post by: Nickito on October 16, 2019, 07:27:21 PM
I really don't think that was the right move for Missy. Karishma wants nothing to do with Lairo, she made a move for the sake of making a move. From what we saw, she didn't work particularly hard to keep Karishma on her side at all.

also I love how Dean is so awful at challenges


Title: Re: Survivor

Noura was amazing at Island of the Idols. Tons of entertainment provided there, and her lies afterwards were priceless. She's definitely the best character on this season by far.

At least the oranges aren't in every tribal council like past seasons.

Also, the first three voted out had 7 votes to their name, the next three had 6. That's satisfying

Title: Re: Survivor
Post by: The_tribe_has_spoken on November 08, 2019, 06:58:04 PM
So pumped that my final four picks of Dean, Elaine, Lauren, and Karishma are still in the game! I'm gonna predict Noura or Aaron as the merge boot because Aaron is good at challenges, and Noura is a very likely flipper, I could see her flipping on old Vokai. also, does anyone think that it's weird Jack is on the jury? I think there might be:

A) A final two
B) a jury removal at IOI
C) the final 3 have the ability to vote either Rob or Sandra into the jury

Thoughts?


Title: Re: Survivor

Title: Re: Survivor

Elaine? Yeesh. I think Karishma isn't getting further than the Top 6 at most

Elaine was my favorite interview, and she is my pick to go at 4. But I think Karishma and Dean are great goats.
And Lauren is my wp, if not her, then probably Kellee.

My guess is Elaine. She has been mentioned as someone who is a threat in the past and she doesn't really have that many concrete allies, so she can easily be voted out.

This season is firmly "meh" now. A Dean/Karishma/Noura F3 would've maybe brought it to Top 15, maybe, but yeah if this is just the story of how Tommy wins because everyone else sucks, combined with Dan existing this is possibly bottom 10 for me. We'll see, I plan on doing a season ranking soon.


Title: Re: Survivor
Post by: Dorothea on December 05, 2019, 05:19:58 PM
Dean is ruining the endgame... it's so frustrating. If Tommy went now, then Dan would be in the minority FINALLY and a Karishma/Noura/Dean F3 would be possible where Karishma or Noura win over Dean lmao. Now it's most likely just The Tommy Show and how he wins.  ::)


Title: Re: Survivor
Post by: Nickito on December 06, 2019, 11:58:05 AM
Look at it from his perspective though: Noura is probably 7th, he has a legacy advantage no one else knows about to get through 6, and that's just one tribal until fire, which he thinks he can win. Suddenly he's in the final 3, and he can use his play with the legacy advantage, the way he put Noura on the bottom of the game, and the way he went under the radar despite being a huge physical threat to get the jury on his side.

Of course it's a fake advantage, Noura was already on the bottom, and Dean is somehow one of the weakest challenge performers left, but he doesn't know any of that.
