Also, the one guy I hated the most his first appearance is the one guy who seems the most likable this time around (Tyson). Is that all editing, or is he really behaving differently? Maybe it's what he said about 'The game making people angry', maybe he's describing himself in his first season.
I wonder if I'd enjoy it if I went back and watched through some of the older seasons. Not that I have the time to do so, but I remember I did re-watch the first three Survivors once when I was in high school. There are a bunch of the seasons in the middle that I just don't remember that well except I remember enjoying them, like Aras' first season or the one with the Todd/Stephen final.
