Re: Survivor 26: Fans vs Favorites Discussion

At this point the Cool Kids are just down to two dudes who aren't quite as bad at challenges as everyone else. So far I wouldn't bring back any of these boring ass fans for a later season. Swing and a miss on the Survivor talent. If they didn't win another challenge it would suit me just fine.

They weren't trying to flush out the idol. They wanted to get rid of Hope and used Eddie as the back-up vote in case one of them got to use the idol. They were trying to keep the tribe strong for challenges while still bringing the "cool group" down to two members. Hope was their first choice because she was the weakest of the three in challenges.

They seemed to think the guy with the idol was the best at challenges, so he was never a target.

Re: Survivor 26: Fans vs Favorites Discussion

That's another thing about the Fans vs Favorites concept. I'm a fan of Survivor, but if I have social plans during the episode, I miss it, and catch it on the website next time I have nothing better to do. So I can not call myself a 'superfan', thus would not be eligible for the show. Nor would anybody who has much social skills or spends much of any time outside.

The only two people who are remotely physically capable on the Fans side, Reynold and Shamar, act like pathetic entitled children.

I think the same thing is going to happen this season that happens the first Fans vs Favorites, the Favorites dominate and eviscerate the Fans tribe. I am praying that everybody gets knocked off except Matt & Mike, who then make strong alliances with some of the Favorites.

And I've seen a lot of reality show contestants who I've not liked, but there are only two who I think if I met in real life, they might actually hurt me. That is Brandon and Willie Hantz. Holy crap that family has a defective Y chromosome.

I know they wanted to keep the guys for the challenges, but the gal that seems to be pulling the strings (can't seem to remember any of their names) mentioned wanting to flush out the idol as well. And they could have- if they had just let Idol Guy know he was a target. Even if he was too stupid to play it they still could have voted out Hope in the second round of voting.

Poor Shamar *sniffle*

Anyway, looks like we are finally getting the Hantzsplosion next week. That dude is just not stable.

Re: Survivor 26: Fans vs Favorites Discussion

looks like it's going to be interesting. But how are they going to get rid of him if they never lose?

I was thinking, wonder if the contestants could sue for putting them in there with a crazy person?

Why? They can leave any time they want, and the Survivor producers' contracs have been tested over many years, and lots of lunatics in the camps.

but this guy appears dangerous. I doubt the contract would hold up if contestants start physically attacking each other.

I'm looking forward to next week's episode. The show hyped a Brandon meltdown before, but this time it looks like it'll finally happen.

I've got to give this past week's episode a rewatch, I had a dinner party beforehand and then decided to watch the show afterwards drunk off my ass and can't remember a bloody thing.

Psy-cho-path.

It takes a concerted effort to make Philip look like a paragon of self control.

Did you see the way Probst was rubbing his shoulders? He was terrified Brandon was about to physically attack someone.

"I'm doing this for my family!"

Yeah Brandon, your kids are going to see this the moment they're old enough to discover Youtube.

Re: Survivor 26: Fans vs Favorites Discussion

I found it funny that in the preview for last week's episode, they had shown clips of the Hantz meltdown, but they weren't in the actual episode. Then, in last night's episode, they showed a recap of last week's, and they showed those same clips ... which never actually aired in that episode.

It reminded me of one of those episodes of Angel, when they did one of those recaps at the beginning of the episode, but filmed scenes specifically for the recap, that weren't aired in the ep.

Survivor is trying to be sneaky.
