Who are the gays, besides Yam Yam and dad Michael?

Here’s a list. Apparently the little twink is setting hearts flutter. He is a real cutie.

I think Yam Yam, from what I saw tonight, is going to be a real funny character.

Every season I ask myself why I'm watching this show again - it's the same old routine. At this point I just pay attention when they do the challenges. All the babbling gets tuned out.

The thing that always annoys me is that the contestants always use the flimsiest excuses to target someone for elimination... the go-to is the tired "I can't trust them!". They get outraged to find out that someone is seeking the hidden Immunity Idol early in the show - happens every season in the first episode, someone gets the side-eye if they wander off and someone else starts the badmouthing that that one is probably out looking for an idol. How dare they! Of course you have to look for it ASAP, before someone else finds it. Like tonight, everyone hopped on Brandon because he found that birdcage in the forest. The players have so little ammunition to use on a virtual stranger, that trust becomes "something" as a motivation - it's better than nothing. It irks me every time.

The NASA kid is quite a cutie. So innocent. I'm glad that he's not the one in the reported showmance.

Last night's episode was a bloodbath. I have to say that Probst's preening during the medical interventions is sickening. The guy is passing out and profusely bleeding, and Probst can't stop promoting the Survivor experience like he's revealing a home renovation on Property Brothers.

I wish the show hadn't gotten the point where people suffer so much during the challenges. It's one thing to push people. It's another to torture them. That's not fun to watch. The idiot who fell off the rock he was climbing-that was his own stupidity.

Carolyn still seems likes she's on drugs. I like the "crazy older lady" archetype on the show, but she seems like she's really going to be over-the-top crazy. And they've really highlighted it. She probably goes early.

It's too bad what happend to Bruce he was a good looking guy. He and Danny (the fireman) are the two hottest guys for me this season. Caeson is cute, but too nerdy and seems asexual. He might just be the biggest gamebot yet.

I like Matt, but he's made some very questionable moves so far. He looks like he has a big dick though.

Yam Yam is obviously going to be the standout player this season.

Not looking forward to the 'showmance'. Ugh.

That first tribal was a mess.

Pretty brutal premiere episode. No one stands out yet, but I'm also shocked the guy in the supposed showmance is straight.

My fatigue with this show is getting harder to ignore in recent years. It's also gotten worse since it came back from the pandemic hiatus. The shorter season doesn't work, and cramming a new twist in every episode is annoying. The show also seems to cast people based on what diversity checklist boxes they tick off rather than whether they are good or interesting players.

All the idols and advantages have made the show more about finding things than outwitting and outplaying anyone

by Anonymousreply 37March 6, 2023 11:31 PM

The show has been in Fiji for so long that you forget there were seasons in the jungles of Cambodia and Guatemala. The different locations really helped give each season a different vibe. Now even I know the geography of this island they keep returning too. (I’m sure Survivor can’t be good for the island’s environment, but there are so many islands in Fiji- couldn’t they move every once in a while?)

I didn’t understand any of the strategy with that tribal. Matt was told on the sit out bench about what happened at the other tribe, making it clear Lauren was A) lying and B) probably had an advantage. Yet no one seemed to care about this?

Jaime was a paranoid wreck to use her shot in the dark when no one was even remotely targeting her and Matt used his because? Brandon really needed his vote. I thought they were buddies. Lauren is now completely exposed because she played her blank vote way too soon to activate her advantage when she should have laid low for a week or two.

Only Brandon was smart to sense what was happening. He lost his idol, but stayed in the game. Now no one on that tribe could possibly trust anyone. What a mess!

by Anonymousreply 38March 6, 2023 11:51 PM

At the lone tribal council, why did Jeff announce that Maddy was the "2nd" player voted out?

by Anonymousreply 39March 7, 2023 12:27 AM

I don't like how, in every season premiere, Jeff, an executive producer no less, goes through the pretense of singling out a few contestants & ask them their names. And then, when they immediately thereafter enter into the initial challenge, Jeff dispenses with the charade, identifying each by name in his PBP.

Probst has said that it's permanent.

That's just one of the reasons some of us think that Australian Survivor is superior, R27. Their current season (#10) started with 24 castaways divided into 2 tribes and lasts 47 days. They still have 3-day cycles between tribal councils and regular reward challenges, too. The Aussies also haven't gone apeshit with multiple twists and advantages, so it plays more like old-time Survivor. On top of all that, the guys are hotter.

R60, I’m most states the requirement for becoming a “therapist” is getting business cards printed up.

Unlike people that advise you on the law (lawyers),or people that advise you on buying a house (realtors), or people that advise you on your hair (cosmetologists), anyone that wants to advise you on your road to sobriety (like AA) is allowed to do it and charge whatever you’re willing to pay.

Regardless, Carson lived to fight another day. He started playing both sides MUCH earlier than most. I can’t imagine the decision, so out of the norm, to do so wasn’t based on his statistical analysis of the games heretofore.

These contestants are exhausting that they get mad when they find out the idol was taken and no one comes right out and says "It's me!". They turn this into a witch hunt and automatically brand the person who has the idol as a traitor not to be trusted. They turn into a mean girl clique and get salty when the idol holder doesn't outright confess. This routine has been going on for 20+ years and I was sick of it years ago.

I find it annoying that no one sees how hypocritical this attitude makes them.

It seemed like all three tribes zoomed through the obstacle course. They literally advanced to the the final stage at the same time. They could have skipped it all.

r128 it happens every season, There is a loser tribe. It's obvious they set it up that way. You can always see two tribes get big strong guys and athletic women and then one tribe of randoms who fail all the time. If that were me on that tribe I would just show up to a challenge and say "Jeff, you guys stacked it so we can't win so let's save everyone the time and we will just sit out," and see what happens. This bullshit about all the tasks are designed to challenge everyone, is bullshit. Last season one tribe had a fucking aquaman clone. He carried the whole tribe, literally, every time.

Were they the same tribe that lost a guy the first 24 hours? He was big and strong, and might have carried helped carry the tribe. I can’t remember, though, maybe I’ll look it up later. The challenges no longer vary, and it’s tedious. Whatever happened to swallowing gross stuff, haha.

This season is so boring and uneventful, I use it as background noise and I can still follow it as if I was giving it my undivided attention.

The cost cutting after the pandemic is ruining the show. The challenges are all the same and the shorter season doesn't give the players enough time to build deep relationships with each other, so they're way more conservative in their strategies.

I doubt they can encourage contestants to do things like that or they’d be in civil court non-stop. Plus, if it went down that way, Matt would’ve been even more glum in his interviews and been like, “I never should’ve listened to you motherfuckers.”

I've no idea why I'm still watching Survivor. I fast forward through much of it. Like when Matt was emoting. Any emoting to be honest.

I think they need to revamp the whole thing. They should get rid of Jeff. He's way too old and the plastic surgery is starting to look weird. They could get a couple of former winners to present it. There have been plenty of interesting winners.

They should also go back to the large group and longer series. To be survivor is far more impressive when you've fought off more people and stuck it out for a much longer time.

And they should have 'normal' players who don't have a story to tell or moral to teach. It shouldn't matter if they are gay/black/disabled/confused. Who cares? You just have to be good at the game. And who wants to listen to people go on about themselves anyway?

I just started watching OUTLAST on Netflix. 16 people, split into 4 teams, dropped off in the Alaska wilderness for however long they last. The teams have minimal supplies, there aren't standard challenges, and you aren't voted off. Instead, you choose to leave the game by firing a flare gun. With daytime temps in the low 30s and nights even colder, some people have called it quits after only a few days. Also, you also must be part of a team -- no solo survivalists -- so as your team loses members, you can try to recruit from others or attempt to join them. The last team standing wins the million bucks.

It's an interesting variation on SURVIVOR, in that it is actually [bold]about[/bold] survival. Surprisingly, even without tribal councils and immunity idols, there is still a lot of back-stabbing and betrayal going on. One of the teams, in fact, seems to consist solely of sociopaths.

This is the furthest I've made it into a season since season 40. It's OK, but it definitely has lost something and is kind of a shell of what it used to be. It also doesn't help that (please don't shoot me) Australian Survivor just produced one of the best seasons of Survivor in general.

They're staying in Fiji because it's cheaper to have a permanent set up than to have to keep moving it season after season. Since it's budgetary, I wish they would do a season here in the US. They could do something off the coast of North Carolina, I think a Roanoke theme could be fun. Or maybe a western theme along the Rio Grande - imagine tribal council set in a ghost town. They can find ways to keep costs down and keep it fresh and new.

Fiji has basically given Survivor this island to film on and they receive amazing financial incentives to stay there. Even filming domestically would incur great costs that the show can’t afford. Survivor’s identity has become too entwined with tropical paradise to abandon it now.

The show has been much, much better the past 4 seasons compared to 34-40 (or so). They’ve stopped bringing back Rob and Sandra and the other ten players they’re in love with. The new casting director has stopped casting IG bimbos and the diversity has brought in the “regular” people again.

Fans of Survivor should watch Class of ‘07 on Amazon Prime. They do a tribal council on there to vote off the person they want to kill and eat. “I’ll go tally the votes. The person with the most votes will be… eliminated.”

One girl has the immunity idol so Jeff keeps reading her name and says “does not count”. I don’t think that was fair. They should have eaten her anyway. She was organic as fuck.

This season isn't half bad so far compared to some of the others in the last several years. The truncated seasons still feel rushed but if it was either that or the show being canceled it will work.

I'm just grateful they haven't been doing variations of Redemption Island/Edge of Extinction. It was such bullshit a few years ago when that idiot was out of the game for the the majority of the post merge and then slid back in for the stupid fire making challenge and ended up winning the season.

There are a lot of idols floating around but it seems like the chances of obtaining them now are equitable and they're not just being tossed in front of Jeff's man crushes who are at risk of being voted out like Tony and Ben.

Carolyn is the smartest of the bunch. She wanted Danny out; he’s a formidable player. But it was close between Kane and a woman whose name escapes me. But no one listened to her. Frannie is proving to be a tough competitor.

Even the puzzle win, you know he practiced it 1,000x and was like, “I pretend the last piece doesn’t fit and then just make this minor adjustment with these two pieces to make it seem like it’s really taxing me mentally.”

Carson saw himself winning an immunity challenge as much as Kate Winslet saw herself winning an Oscar and don’t you doubt it for a second.

Plus, if she were MAGA, she never would’ve played the idol for Carson or anybody else.

I can't believe next week is already the finale!

Also, when did the show start allowing contestants to bring multiple items of clothing with them?

I watched Survivor for many years after it debuted, but then missed a bunch of seasons and only started watching again last year. Used to be, they were only allowed to have whatever clothing they were wearing on day one, but now it seems like they all have multiple items of clothing -- bathing suits, hoodies, shorts, long pants, jackets, etc.

Is that something relatively new or has it been around for a while?

Why was Gay-Gay acting all weird with Carolyn at tribal? She was getting all paranoid thinking she was getting voted off.

[quote] I don't get it. Was he being a drama queen for no reason?

Not exactly. The show demands it of the cast. They want viewers to be nervous about the vote so they stuck a camera in yam's face and asked him if he ever thought he might vote Carolyn off someday and would that be hard and can you squeeze out a few tears just thinking about it please? The glances between him and Carolyn at tribal was a hoax designed to keep us on the edge of our seats.

by Anonymousreply 401May 18, 2023 2:17 PM

Though the show was desperately trying to sell the "Yam Yam turns on Carolyn" storyline, I didn't buy it for an instant. Why would he vote off one of the Tika Three, leaving Carson and himself in the minority? Yam Yam is not that stupid.

The editing has been so strong for all 3 of them this season that I wouldn't be surprised to see them end up as the Final 3.

Also, he had to keep up the ruse (to Jamie and Lauren) that he was voting Carolyn off. Remember, they thought he and Carson would be voting with them.

His pre-vote squirrelliness/answers to Jeff's questions were likely also designed to reassure Jamie that he was voting for Carolyn, so that Jamie wouldn't use the idol they all suspect she has.

The last time I was rooting for someone as much as Carolyn was during Outback with Tina Wesson. I know she's not everyone's favorite winner but I had a hunch and knew she'd win. I'm feeling that again with Carolyn. Tina/Colby = Carolyn/Carson.

The season just feels legit. Yeah, they all kind of liked each other and diversity is here to stay - but no longer hammered over heads. New ways to deal with idols and advantages. Clear differences in people and play. Some nice tensions in personalities. BIG personalities that manage to be likeable. One old fashioned alliance of underdogs! If Carolyn, Carson or Yam Yam win, I'll be happy. One of them will win if Yam doesn't jump ship. Will he leave Carson and Carolyn to side with Lauren and Heidi? It wouldn't be a bad move for him....

Of the Tika 3, I would have thought Yam-Yam was the weakest of the group, but apparently something he said convinced even Carson that he deserved it over Carolyn. Maybe she shared that she’s from a wealthy family or something, that can sway opinions sometimes.

R434, I thought about that and checked. He had not yet turned 21 when the finale was filmed but they were in Fiji, where the legal drinking age is 18, so it would have been legal for him to drink.

It makes me think it a religious thing. He conspicuously wore a cross necklace and is from Rome, GA, home of Marjorie Taylor Greene. The religious thing might be a reason why a now college graduate who’s cute as a button has no observable girlfriend, or boyfriend.

My partner guessed Ham-Ham would win because of his composure and on point responses. When he described his lie detector abilities 'look for the twinkle!' it suddenly dawned on the jury that he really was playing and strategizing every single minute, and in a way they respected.

I love how they color coordinated their outfits and the background. I’m wondering who got Carson into a linen suit, not what you’d expect from a nerd with ostensibly no fashion sense.

I predict we will see Carolyn and Yam-Yam again. I’m a little skeptical about Carson, in spite of his age, because the producers probably feel embarrassed that he hacked the ALL the puzzles with his 3D printing. I think NASA would be amenable because it’s great advertising for them and he presents well.

R447, it is at the end of the day, a cutthroat game and everyone except Dumb Danny thought that Yam-Yam played the best game. Yam-Yam already addressed this argument by pointing out that if Carolyn had have just trusted him she wouldn’t have had to play the idol because Carson didn’t need protecting. Maybe I’m incorrect but that’s what I heard and believe he said at FTC.

I have no idea how to explain the finale. Heidi and Lauren were totally invisible for most of the season, but somehow both make it to the final five. Then Heidi makes it to the final three, and Yam Yam pulls out a win, with Carolyn getting no votes despite being one of the most visible players.

The editing of this season was a disaster.

Meanwhile, Frannie and Matt are so annoying. Matt seems so gay.

Of the post-pandemic seasons, this felt the most like "old" Survivor. A lot of great moves, but a forgettable cast.

Yam Yam was equally as visible as Carolyn though. This season was the Carolyn-and-YamYam Show

by Anonymousreply 467May 28, 2023 5:35 AM

Don't confuse the editing for the home audience with the actual experience of being on the island. Carolyn was TV gold, but how "visible" was she really? She was rarely shown interacting with people (aside from Yam Yam and Carson) and seemed to keep to herself a lot. The fact that she was left out of several votes also indicates that she wasn't that close to many others. If neither Carson nor Yam Yam told her what was going down, she was pretty clueless. And, though we might laugh at scenes of Carolyn screaming while hopelessly tangled up in challenges, the other tribe members could hardly be expected to turn around and award a million bucks to that behavior.

Don't get me wrong. I thoroughly enjoyed her and found her to be a breath of fresh air. But I think the final vote probably more accurately reflected the tribe's experience.
