well I guess I was wrong about that huh?

I'm glad to see Denise win, but I thought Lisa came accross better in the final tribal.

which was brutal by the way, I don't remember the last time there was one that brutal.

did we see who everyone voted for?

I don't think so. I'd be curious to see who everyone voted for.

I actually thought Lisa was going to win, but it was interesting that all three finalists were getting votes. Usually, it's pretty obvious who the third-place finalist is going to be.

Glad Denise won, felt like the right choice. Pretty cool stat that she attended every single tribal in the game and still came out on top. I'd imagine that everyone voted for her outside the two votes for Scupin and Lisa otherwise they would have made the reveal more suspenseful.

Malcolm played a solid game and perhaps deserved it too but that probably speaks to how deserving Denise was.

Loved Penner's outing of Lisa at the final tribal, epic.

That was a very solid season of Survivor, good to see that after 20+ seasons they can still deliver.

Re: Survivor 25: Phillipines Discussion Thread

This is one of those rare Survivors where I would have been fine with any of the finalists winning, but I'm still glad that Denise won. She had her back against the wall from day one but managed to hang in there the whole time, was a physical and strategic powerhouse, and unlike Jeff Kent, the money will make a major difference in her life.

If it couldn't have been Denise, my next preference would have been Malcolm, but it was not meant to be. As close as it was, I was surprised that Malcolm lost the $100,000 Sprint prize to Lisa, as I thought he was a better strategic player (not that she was a slouch once she woke up and realized it's a game and that sometimes you have to be ruthless).

Abi-Maria actually seemed to be a little bit humbled at the live finale, so maybe she'll grow up a bit after all.

Looking forward to Fans vs. Favorites, even though the Favorites have quite an advantage. Hopefully it won't be too lopsided. They didn't say anything, but maybe Malcolm will get a chance to come back.

Re: Survivor 25: Phillipines Discussion Thread

So apparently the favorites are:

  • Andrea Boehlke, “Survivor: Redemption Island”
  • Brandon Hantz, “Survivor: South Pacific”
  • Brenda Lowe, “Survivor: Nicaragua”
  • Corinne Kaplan, “Survivor: Gabon”
  • Dawn Meehan, “Survivor: South Pacific”
  • Erik Reichenbach, “Survivor Micronesia: Fans vs. Favorites”
  • Francesca Hogi, “Survivor: Redemption Island”
  • John Cochran, “Survivor: South Pacific”
  • Malcolm Freberg, “Survivor: Philippines”
  • Phillip Sheppard, “Survivor: Redemption Island”
Back to back Survivors for Malcolm, that's intense. I think Amanda did that once. Creepy Brandon Hantz and his woman hating ways are back too!

I figure everyone else must have voted for Denise. Had there been more votes for the other two, I'm pretty certain Jeff would have read them before reading all of Denise's votes.

Glad Denise won. She deserved it.

Wish I would have seen all of the reunion show. I added extra time to the recording (anticipating a football delay) but I didn't add quite enough.

Interesting! Glad to see Erik and Cochran back. I question the "favorites" label for some of the others though; there are a couple there that I don't remember even after looking at some photos of their previous season. And please tell me that Brandon Hantz is not anyone's favorite.

As for this season, I also would have been happy with any of the three winning, or any of the final four winning for that matter. I don't think I've ever really felt that way with Survivor before. Actually, in all of the reality TV I watch (mostly just the competition shows like Amazing Race), the results have been pretty satisfying this season.

Denise did overcome some big odds; she will go down as one of the more deserving Survivor winners.

And did anyone else find that chick running over to kiss Jeff during the reunion show just a little uncomfortable? Okay, more than a little.

Clearly they're using a different definition of "favorites" from what most of the world uses. Brandon was a terrible player and a creep, Cochran was full of himself and how knowledgeable and skilled at the game he was and was completely overrated as a player, and "Special" Agent Phillip was just insane and hostile. Might as well bring Abi-Maria back while we're at it since she can be a "favorite" too by this metric.

The rest of the "favorites" I don't even recognize by name (though my memory might be jarred when I see them), except Malcolm. Good to see he's getting another shot.

Re: Survivor 25: Phillipines Discussion Thread

I was rooting for Malcolm, but I had a feeling he was toast as soon as they revealed what the final immunity challenge would be. I just didn't expect him to be the first one out even with that second chance. I'm glad Denise won; I think of the final three she was the most deserving. I fully expected Lisa to come in third place, and I was a little surprised that she beat out Malcolm for Player of the Season.

I'm not surprised that Malcolm will be back next season for Fans vs. Favorites, though. He seemed to be by far this season's breakout "character," and to be honest, seeing that list of other players coming back, I think he'll have a good chance of going deep into the game again. Unless these new fans are better at Survivor than the last batch was, of course.

I'm still wishing that Malcolm and Denise had paired up and voted for Lisa and then at least it would have gone to a challenge.

Other than Malcolm and the inbred Hantz, I didn't recognize any of the names, and had to use Google Images.

That helped, as I remember Dawn, and seem to remember liking her.

Erik, I don't remember his season, other than he was one of the few bits of eye candy we got.

Phillip, though, acted like a loon. He was nuts. Then we find out at the reunion show that he really was a special agent, and he acts like that? Ouch.

Cochran, I really wanted to like at first (ginger and geek?), and then he opened his mouth. Did he learn anything from his experience, or is he still a dolt?

The rest, even after seeing their pictures, I don't remember at all.

Re: Survivor 25: Phillipines Discussion Thread

I remember most of them.

Andrea Boehlke, “Survivor: Redemption Island”
This was the easy on the eyes girl who allied with Matt (the guy who spent like 89 days on Redemption Island) and not Rob's sycophantic girl posse. Decent player, maybe not cerebral enough.

Brandon Hantz, “Survivor: South Pacific”
Women/whores tempt this young and conflicted, possibly homosexual man.

Brenda Lowe, “Survivor: Nicaragua”
She's the cutthroat cutie in the season that Fabio won. My money was on her but she got blindsided I think.

Corinne Kaplan, “Survivor: Gabon”
I remember her being kind of a bitch. Gabon was a while ago.

Dawn Meehan, “Survivor: South Pacific”
She creeped me out.

Erik Reichenbach, “Survivor Micronesia: Fans vs. Favorites”
Can't believe you guys don't remember Erik - he made possibly the most boneheaded move in Survivor history when he won immunity, gave it to Parvarti or one of her girls, and then promptly got voted out.

Francesca Hogi, “Survivor: Redemption Island”
Don't remember much about her. Think she was early to go.

John Cochran, “Survivor: South Pacific”
The cockmeister!

Malcolm Freberg, “Survivor: Philippines”
Duh.

Phillip Sheppard, “Survivor: Redemption Island”
Remember in the final tribal when he started insulting the jury? Possibly one of the more epic, hilarious Survivor moments for me.

So yeah, like Locutus said it's not really the standard definition of favorites but I'm content to see what they can do. It actually sounds like kind of a dysfunctional tribe already.
