Re: Survivor 27: Blood vs Water

Globetrotters... as in Harlem Globetrotters, basketball team known for doing basketball tricks and demolishing fake(?) teams that nobody's ever heard of and probably don't actually try. Flight Time and Big Easy. Really tall black guys. Played basketball, jovial as all hell? Brendan and Rachel I'm not sure of... presumably one of the bickering horror couples? But which one I couldn't say. I'm still on the first ep of this season's Amazing Race, probably going to marathon it when I fly home for the holidays and am bored out of my wits, so no spoilers please

Anyway, I'm so glad Tyson won. Monica was pretty despicable. She actually thought that normal people would be swayed by her "boo-hoo I'm a beauty queen who married an NFL prospect and got to live a life of ease for the last 20 years thanks to his NFL career but it's never about me" crap. Where did her single vote come from anyway? That person should be evaluated.

Gervaise just came off as too much of a non-entity. Tyson even had the pro 'emotional' plea about his sister during his opening statement to help swing those votes. That was really well played.

All-in-all I'm pretty happy that it didn't explode into a potential nightmare final 3 of Tina, Ciera, and Monica... ugh. Ugh ugh ugh.

Ah, thanks for explaining.

I'm glad Ciera didn't win. I was really beginning to loathe her smug face.

Glad to see that Tyson won.

The reunion show was kind of boring (it usually is). It's hard to go into any depth with that many cast members there. And I wish they wouldn't have spent any time talking to Colton- since he quit, I don't think he should have even been allowed to participate.

Glad to hear there's no returning players next year, but I'm not too thrilled about the brawn vs. beauty vs. brains concept. Seems a little too contrived.

Vytas, I would guess. Wasn't he the one who said he made a promise to himself earlier in the game that he wouldn't vote for Tyson to win? I thought that was a little petty, considering Tyson was the only really worthy choice of the final three. Gervais rode Tyson's coattails and his loudmouthed nature caused more trouble than anything else, and Monica refused to make a big move right up until the very end despite all her posturing about how she was the swing vote and the one controlling the outcome.

Re: Survivor 27: Blood vs Water

The Harlem Globetrotters are a famous basketball comedy show. Flight Time & Big Easy are a group that has competed twice before on the show, the first time coming in fifth and losing because they couldn't spell Franz, and the second time in the 'Unfinished business' season coming in second.

Brendan and Rachel are one of the irritating Big Brother groups that keep getting invited to Amazing Race.

I agree the Brains vs Brawn vs Beauty is a dumb gimmick, but how long do 3+ tribe gimmicks ever last on the show? They reduce to 2 after the first couple episodes. It's the same as the race season, they make a big deal about it at the start, then it gets forgotten immediately.

Re: Survivor 27: Blood vs Water

Glad Tyson won, he deserved it.

Monica became brutally annoying by the end of the whole thing. She's such a victim, you guys.

Poor Gervase got all dressed up for nothing. Seriously though, riding on someone's coattails is never a strategy that the jury respects.

I thought this season was very decent and enjoyable. My only complaint was that this season didn't really show the struggle of living out in the wild with nothing but the clothes on your back. Survivor has done that so well in the past, capturing the suffering that the people in the game endure. Maybe it was just a weather thing, like was said in the reunion.

Bring on the Brains vs Brawn vs Beauty! Like it was said upthread, that'll only last for a few episodes before they merge, no big deal. I don't know why but I thought of Revenge of the Nerds 2: Nerds in Paradise when they announced what the premise of next season would be. Great effin' movie.

Re: Survivor 27: Blood vs Water

Loved seeing the update on Cochran. Though even more now he should be doing post game commentary on some cbs show.

Heartbreaking news about Tina's son though

Brains vs Brawn vs Beauty. So basically it's the Big Brother clique idea, only labelled less silly. Ok. At least there are no returning players next season. That's fine, they'll merge it into two tribes in episode 2-4.

Wasn't that Hayden's season? Why didn't he say "They already did that on Big Brother with the cliques"?
Wasn't Hayden's season, it was the season Jordan won.

Rupert or his wife will be the first voted out unless their win some kind of awesome immunity. People don't want to go up against a popular Survivor like that.
Waiting till next season hope it is better
