    Truly geeked up about this season, just because everyone has game, there are no fillers, everyone has a target on their back. And it's actually the first time where the pre-merge is probably more interesting because everyone is used to feeling like the big dog and worried about letting anyone else lead. Great personalities and relationships and friendships tested. Even the Edge of Extinction works better this time around.

    The first team was stupid for not voting off Rob or Parvati. Natalie is not a threat to win in this field. Now Rob has to stay because they can’t send him the edge with his wife.

    I haven't watched this show in years, but I might have to dive back into it for this occasion.

    They should rename it Survivor Suburbs. Seems everyone is now a parent, the women are wearing cover ups over their bikinis and all of the dudes have Dadbods.

    I watched Survivor but don't remember about half these people.

    Pretty fun start to the season. The problem with voting out Amber is that she would obviously give her fire token to Rob. I might have waited on her, particularly since she didn't seem to have any obvious advantage within that tribe. She wasn't playing hard and, frankly, didn't seem like much of a threat (yet).

    Natalie giving Sandra the fire token was a bit of a head scratcher.

    Sandra is perhaps the most annoying contestant ever. Vote her ass out ASAP!

    Yeah, I’m not fond of her. She’s arrogant without being entertaining. I can deal with the arrogance if the contestant brings something else with it. She doesn’t.

    I so wanted to like this season after last season’s abomination but it’s already losing me. Advantages raining from the sky, a challenge we’ve seen variations of a hundred times and dumb game play have me bored.

    Did Sandra compete in any challenges? Has anyone ever been voted out after receiving one vote?

    Always thought you couldn't sit out back to back challenges - I know Sandra competed in a few when the teams were all square at least. In a weird way, Im glad - and I'm guessing she was pleased - that it was a blindside and not a situation where she had to go around begging.
    What will be interesting about this season's winner is that I don't think they'll really have to worry about alienating jury members by flipping on alliances. You're more likely to pick up a vote with a heel turn, than lose one since no one has won Survivor without breaking a few eggs.
