I watched the preview show and the thing that stood out was there did not seem to be any really overbearing personalities .. IOW, no Russell types .. just seemed like a pretty good group this season .. hoping for the best ..

is Jeff Kent going to be a real jerk like when he played baseball, or will he be more laid back?
post #34 of 586
Russell certainly dodged a bullet there. If Zane would have kept his mouth shut after the challenge he would have been safe, but his "bright" strategy did him in. Speaking of Russell, either he never took his shirt off in his first go around or he got huge. I don't remember him being that muscular.

Abi-Maria = "Brazilian Got Back!"
Seriously, what is it about Brazilian women and incredible asses? Every one I see is quite the opposite of flat back there.

Line of the episode - "That's my best chess move. So king me."

Jeff Kent must be the fastest healer because he seemed to be moving fine on that knee.

Lisa Whelchel won't be long for this game. I like her, but she just seems so on the outside with this group.

Overall, I think this will be a decent season. Now to just keep the eye candy around as long as possible.

Lol at Zane, biggest idiot ever? Certainly up there.
post #36 of 586
So glad Zane is gone, if you close your eyes and listen to him, he sounded a lot like Russell. Not a very bright player.

The teen model winner is freaking gorgeous, however, no one else on the show is. I am surprised, they usually load it up with attractive women but not this year.

I absolutely loved the chess line. I was going to comment on it myself, but you beat me to it. smile.gif Russell is really overbearing and has no idea of the concept of leadership.

slightly bummed that zane is gone so early. pretty wacky, but an interesting character. playing the quitter is just a terrible strategy though. probably worse was when he told the guys that he had already made alliances with everybody.
i would say the cast looks really promising; a good mix of personalities. i'm pretty impressed with roberta the banker. she's charming and makes friends easy. seems to have some smarts as well.

Really? You don't think Katie (former Miss Delaware) is attractive?
post #40 of 586
Ok, 2 things I noticed this episode....

1. Did it seem like the contestents had many changes of clothes? Just how many outfits are they allowed to bring?

2. Was there actually some nip showing on the investment banker early on when she was wearing the bikini top (bra?)?
If so Im surprised because usually the edits are way over the top with everything blurred out.
post #41 of 586
Too bad we lost Zane. I thought he could have been interesting.

I think I would have recognized Jeff Kent. Probably not Lisa from Facts of Life though, even though I did watch the show sometimes.

The woman who did recognize Jeff Kent estimated his career earnings at $30M. Not even close. According to USAToday, his total was around $92M.

When he gets outed, he really needs to pledge the money to charity to have any shot.

I don't mind the "celebrities" at all. They both seem to be big fans of the show.

overbearing is the perfect word to describe russell. as much as he wants to "lay back" and let someone else take the leadership role, he can't help himself. out of the three returning players, skupin probably has the best chance. he plays well with others. penner is delusional. he sees himself as a charmer but he's more the snake in the grass schemer type.

Delaware must not have a large selection if she won a beauty pageant. I don't look at her as gorgeous at all.

I don't know if I completely bought Zane's confessionals.   I wonder if he was being honest when they got back to camp and then tried to spin it as strategy after he came to his senses.    He genuinely seemed like a guy who wanted out.    Either way, its way too early to play the no-threat/Goat card.    

 

Mike's "injury" segment was hilarious.   He is well on his way to another medevac exit from the game.

Its so true.  He knows he has a problem, he just can't stop himself.   Malcolm instantly picked up on it and used it to his advantage.   Russell was so excited when he "started" that fire.   My early money is on Malcolm.

Well, I never said gorgeous, just attractive. She has pretty eyes and a nice smile. Oh, and that body isn't too shaby either. wink.gif

Plus, this is Delaware we're talking about. The state that you could walk through in an hour. tongue.gif
post #47 of 586
Obviously pretty early, but I also think that Malcolm could have a decent shot at this if their tribe isn't decimated before any merges. He seems to be a very competent outdoorsy type person similar to Ozzy.

I also don't have a problem with the odd celebrity on the show IF they are actually fans of the show and are there to play the game (as opposed to just trying to promote themselves). Kent and Blair seem to be in it to play, which is fine. Must be an age thing, but I definitely would have recognized both of them instantly.
post #48 of 586
I know I would have recognized Jeff Kent right away, but Lisa Whelchel may have taken me a little while due to the aging. I would have thought she looked familiar, but it wouldn't come to me immediately.

So, what's the over/under on when they merge to two tribes? Unless Russell's tribe gets decimated each week, I'm saying they go to two in the 5th week.

I disagree. His weak performance in the challenge did him him. His tribe made the (seemily rare lately) correct decision of keeping the much stronger Russell to help them win future challenges. Russell also will help them be much more confortable in camp.

Obviously we'll never know, but it's not like Zane was the only one who struggled. That sex therapist couldn't paddle to save her life and the other two girls on the puzzle looked completely baffled.

Had Zane not gone on about how bad he was, they might have overlooked it and focused on Russell being an bossy jackass.

But, like I said, we'll never know for sure.

My sister in law use to do pageants, I will just say I expect a lot more. Pageants to me should have VERY good looking women, this girl is just so so for me.

I know everyone has different tastes, but just out of curiosity I have a question.

Are you judging her looks based off the info that you know she won a beauty pageant or do you not find her attractive in general? If it's the former, then I can see where you're coming from, but if it's the latter that boggles my mind. To me she is easily the second best looking woman this season and it's a close second behind Angie.

I don't find her attractive, she just doesn't do it for me. Its like you said, people have different taste.

If you think Katie isn't "even close" to being attractive, I would love to see your wife or significant other.
post #56 of 586
I think Katie bears a strong resemblance to Nadia Bjorlin. Especially in the eyes.

Either way, back to the gameplay discussion. Who do you think will be the first to figure out that the symbol on top of the rice box is actually the immunity idol?

I always though the "Fear Factor" segments were the worst and way too drawn out. I was very happy when they finally went away from those challenges

I find her very attractive .. the dark hair and blue eyes give here a slight exotic look ..

post #59 of 586
oh yeah, the Miss Delaware is nice on the eyes, I can't recall her much from Ep 1. The young blonde girl is absolutely smokin (one of the best ever) and she was definitely a part of the Zane fan club as was I. Zane was probably too wreckless (great for the show) but he had quite a following. So from a viewing standpoint, the first vote went about as bad as it could've.

I don't think they could have picked 3 worse returnee survivors. I know the theme was medically evacuated, but I still think there would be better choices. Penner was a shaky choice for Fans vs Favorites as well but Probst likes him and I am sure put it through. The fake Russell? Skupin from 11 years and 23 seasons ago? I guess he is the best choice of the three.

I've always believed Survivor 101 strategy was "Never, under any circumstances, offer up your head on a platter for any reason" .. Zane was, I guess, attempting some reverse mojo trip .. I knew he was going home the minute he offered himself up ..

Yep, the kiss of death these days is being an "older" player .. I like Lisa and was hoping to see her shed the jeans and top when they were in the water .. just to see how the bods holding up, you understand ..

And there just is no wating anymore to form alliances .. soon, they will start doing it on the boat or plane as they travel to the location ..
