Years ago, when Survivor was still difficult, the fat cast members would often lose a lot of weight and at least walk away looking better. In recent seasons, they don't starve them anymore, and I swear the fat cast members sometimes end up gaining weight.

Emily, with her five-head, has to be one of the most unappealing contestants (looks and personality-wise) ever.

I can't wait, like her tribe mates, for her to be voted out...

Also can't wait for the downfall of Drew "I'm the smartest contestant ever" Basile. Shut up you ugly ginger.

They fired the woman who did most of the casting several years ago (Lynne Spillman) and after the Covid hiatus it seems like they're focused on putting spergy weirdos on the show who have experienced or are experiencing some physical or emotional hardship that they feel compelled to tearfully share frequently, while the somber piano cue plays in the background.

Sadly, R16, that has become the standard formula for every reality competition series now.

Contestants can no longer be on any show because they want to compete, or God forbid, be honest and say they want to win the prize.

They have to have their "my dog molested me and burned down my trailer after I found out my brother was my father" moment.

Given what happened with Dee and Julie, it will be interesting to see how Austin reacts. However, Austin did say, earlier in the episode, that he wanted to flush out Julie's idol so that happened. Julie will go scorched earth on everyone but Dee next week. She's going to back to camp with all but one person who wrote down her name.

Yeah I an guessing that were some things that happened that they didn't show us, Austin was warned that Julie was going to write down his name, yet he seemed to be very confident about not playing his idol. Something like Drew and Dee both telling Julie that if she voted out Austin they were both coming for her next week and her agreeing to vote Emily instead.

I know it’s not going to happen - maybe never again - but I do wish they would return to the live finale. Not only do we get to see everyone cleaned up, for or better or worse, we also get to see the now forgotten pre-jury cast, and we get updates on these people, e.g., are Dee and Austin an item?

After 45 seasons, Survivor is anything but a castaway for CBS.

The latest season concludes Wednesday night, and the broadcaster is breathing a sigh of relief knowing that its new 90-minute episode strategy for both Survivor and The Amazing Race paid off. CBS’ Wednesday primetime audience is up 19% year-over-year.

For the first time since 2014, CBS is topping Wednesdays, thanks in part to the 25-54 demo that remains committed to its reality competition programming.

Julie, Katurah, and Jake were stupid not to pull a big move and vote out Dee or Austin. when the opportunity was right in front of their dirty faces! Instead you let two people who had a great chance of winning go through to the end!

For some reason, I think Katurah intentionally fucked up the fire challenge so she wouldn't have to sit there like Jake and get no votes from the jury.

Finally, I loved the look on Austin's face when he found out that Dee spoiled his plan with Julie. He told her everything (about Julie and about Jake's idol) but she didn't tell him shit.

Dee was a predictable and kind of boring winner. The finale itself went on for way too long. So many "How does that make you feel?" moments from Jeff because he's still mad his dumb talk show was a failure.

Jake blew every single opportunity he was given to gain power in the game. It's kind of amazing how poorly he played yet still made it to the final tribal council.

This season had a boring pre-merge but got better in the post-merge. That aside, the cast was pretty forgettable.

There aren't good villains anymore either. I hated assholes like Russell Hantz, Abi Maria and that spergy black guy Phillip but at least it was fun to watch them lose.

All the players now are so wrapped up in their narrative and how they've prevailed over some trauma/illness/adversity. Jeff wets himself for that shit and it smothers the fun out of the game.
