You don't have to stop posting just be more specicfic about your objections. The post I quoted you on seemed to indicate you thought there was rigging going on.
If you don't like the editing thtas a legitimate complaint just state what you don't like about it so others understand what you are talking about.
As far as this season the editing has been decent up until the mini Lisa dramas that are sucking up air time.
The season still has much to like, there are potential winners left with nothing clear cut at all as to the outcome.
An F2 would be great and we could see some decent drama if the pairs break up.
There are two potential winners that came from a decimated tribe so that makes this season really good in my book.
It is hard to say whether Lisa is just now playing since she is an actress and some of what she has done could be part of her hiding her game,but I agree with the other posters and I'm tired of her.

I hate editing, so I would love the idea of a 24/7 Survivor channel.
Producers love editing, so they would probably hate that idea.
What about you?
post #485 of 586
24/7 Survivor would be:

8 hours of sleeping
4 hours of makeup
3 hours of bitching about being stuck with nothing to do
.5 hours of challenge
1.5 hours bitching about how much the challenge sucked
2 hours of sitting around with nothing to do
4 hours of preparing and eating food
1 hour of interviews

No, thanks!

I can't seem to figure out if Malcolm is playing a strategy or just being himself .. at any rate, the two players left from the original tribe that quickly went down the tubes initially is a testament to their tenacity .. I'd say if Malcolm and Denise make it to the final, it will be a tough choice for the jury ..
Denise is like a pitbull .. she really is physically fit and is like the Energizer Bunny .. just going and going and going ..

Denise was the least likely to flip on him, as shown minutes later when Michael and Lisa planned to blindside him. And if Malcolm or Denise win the final challenge they will have to send one of them home. He might as well gain favor with a possible jury member.

Did Abi REALLY think she would be picked to go on the reward?
post #492 of 586
I can't believe how stupid Denise is! She had a 5-10 minute head start from Malcolm and she only had to change places between two pieces!! Her IQ must be smaller than her age!! smile.gif
post #493 of 586
Big but is gone! Yeah! Funny how she even acknowledged herself that she has a big but.

If anyone is interested, the Jeff Probst talk show on Wed. had all 5 final contestants on for the full hour. It was actually pretty interesting. The questions from the audience was pretty good and things I always wondered too. You might be able to catch it on demand or something if you missed it.

Go watch Abi at the Ponderosa Pt 2. Someone is a very bitter angry cry baby.
post #497 of 586
i think lisa and skupin made a mistake not voting out denise. bringing abi with them to the final 3 was their best chance of winning.
post #498 of 586
That was an interesting decision. Usually, the loud mouths who make it this far are a shoo-in for being brought to the finals. I wonder if Abi's final insults changed Lisa and Skupin's minds.

I meant to comment on this at the beginning of the season. Does anyone else think that maybe Probst's time on Survivor is coming to a close? Between having a daily talk show now and on top of that it being on a rival network, it seems like the writing is on the wall. How will he even have the time?

I know there were rumors a while back of him leaving and possibly being replaced by Colby Donaldson, but that never materialized. Now, it seems like it may in fact be happening.

Agree. Didn't get their logic. Let's keep Denise so there's less of a chance to get beat by Malcom in the final immunity challenge and then they can get rid of him. Well, that still leaves Denise, who would also probably beat either of them in the final vote. Seems like they would have been better off getting rid of Denise and then giving it their best shot to beat Malcom in the final immunity and then have neither of them their for the final tribal.

Also, some strange editing again. They showed on the reward Malcom initiating the conversation about getting rid of Denise. Yet, just before the tribal council, it looked like he wasn't considering anyone but Abi and it was Lisa and Scupin making the decision as to who would go.

Well .. IMO what we have left is :

Skupin .. a nice enough guy, never made any real moves that I can remember .. lucky to still be in it .. some Jury members may like him .. longshot to win

Lisa .. keeps talking about making a big move, playing Mom it seems like, very lucky to still be in it .. unless there is a praying challenge unlikely to win an immunity .. I don't have a feeling of the Jury take on her but it's going to be difficult for her to argue for voting her way .. unless some hidden "big move" miraculously materializes ..

Denise .. pitbull, throws it all out there, has not really pissed anyone off except Abi, good talker, Jury likes her

Malcolm .. pulling out all the stops challenge wise, has maintained a steady hand, has not pissed anyone off that I've seen .. game play almost seems effortless ..

Malcolm IMO would win against anyone but Denise .. if it's Malcolm & Denise in the final, it will come down to just how good a case for overall play can be made ..

Sunday, I'm guessing Lisa will go, Skupin will stay as the goat ..

Malcolm as the likely winner ..

Well, I believe Jeff is Survivor .. I don't believe the show could have had a better host over the years .. I've watched "Top Shot" with Colby Donaldson and I don't think there is any comparison, although I think Colby tries to be like Jeff .. if my memory serves, Jeff was a mentor to Colby and they are good friends ..

Sometimes, a show Host becomes the icon of the show, which is what I think Jeff is at this point .. like Pat Sajak, Bob Barker, Alex Trebek ..

No matter what Jeff does, he will always and forever be associated with Survivor .. so, he might as well stay in it ..

It seems that Denise has really ticked off Penner somehow. With his exit a couple of weeks ago and him flipping her the finger this episode, I think that Denise's chances aren't as good as one might have thought. Penner is well liked and likely has a lot of sway over other jurists at Pondersa.

And as others have mentioned, how in the world could Abi be disappointed with not being picked for reward? You would think that even a person without any sense of self-awareness would know that in her position, she wasn't going unless she won. Unbelievable.

I thought that the finger was directed at Abi.

His new talk show is actually produced by CBS and distributed in syndication (It airs on my local CBS affiliate).   The rumor is that the head of TV Distribution at CBS was fired partly because Probst's talk show is doing so poorly.   It is highly unlikely that it will survive (pun intended).    I highly doubt he would even consider leaving Survivor.   From what I have read, Probst makes something like $200,000 per episode.    He was quoted back in August saying that he planned to continue to host Survivor no matter what happened to his talk show.

I agree.  Probst is an excellent host and the show just wouldn't be the same without him.  

post #507 of 586
Yeah Probst isn't going anywhere.

I think Abi just became so annoying that the others wanted her out no matter what. Could it also be that Scupin and Lisa saw Abi as competition for the "shoe-in" 2nd and 3rd people in the finals? Perhaps they are thinking that they will let Denise and Malcolm duke it out in 3 days and whoever is left will take the two of them. If it was Malcolm and the other three, he'd have to choose between Lisa, Abi, and Scupin. Meaning either Lisa or Scupin are out.

I liked Scupin's quote about how keeping Abi for 3 more days was worth $1 million. Yet their dancing on the way out of Tribal clearly showed where their heart was. I wonder what Abi's reaction was when she saw that last night for the first time.

Denise took a bite and venom and didn't even flinch in the competition. That's dedication, and we've seen it all season long. Her only problem is being cast as riding Malcolm's coat tails. Though the fact that she held on as her tribe disintegrated challenge after challenge does give her credibility.

I just hope Lisa doesn't win. I really enjoyed watching Scupin play in Australian Outback. If it wasn't for the stupid fire, he was in a great position to get to the end.

Am I the only one thinking this is a final two this year and not a final three? Every other final three they go into the last episdoe with 5 people, this year. This year there are only 4 left and that usually results in a final two, with two tribal councils before the final one.

I wondered that as well but could find no info one way or the other ..

I think that would be an awesome twist.   Everybody assumes that the finale will include at least one of Malcolm or Denise.  But suppose Malcolm wins the immunity challenge and decides to take out Denise (or vice-versa), obviously their toughest competition.   Then they think they are headed to the final only to find out that they have to fight for their life in a final immunity challenge.     I'm rooting for Malcolm but I think that would make for a more interesting finale.
