    Two questions stand out ----
    #1)........why was this season "held back" ?........and shown "out of order " ?
    *
    2)..........It seems the broadcast season is starting up again......fairly soon ?
    Haven't they waited a longer period of time between seasons, in the past ?
    Didn't they wait til Spring ?.....for the next season to begin ?
    *
    Anybody else questioning this ?
    *
    BTW -
    I do think this "Brawn/Beauty/Brains" stuff is silly -- alliances made over this crap ?
    Once, the first merger occurs = the whole thing doesn't matter anymore, anyway.
    *
    I was thinking of an answer to my #1 question ---
    Would the producers NOT want the contestants to know anything ( strategy wise ) about the previous season ?
    I'm not sure, if contestants, can view the previous season -- before they film an upcoming season ?

    Can't wait......favorite reality tv show (BB close second). I am at a casino now spending two nights. DVRing the show just in case I get stuck at a machine waiting for a handpay and can't get to the room in time.

    Hope the new season is as good at the last one.

    I sincerely hope this edition of BBB starts out as dysfunctional as the first BBB. One of the best things about Survivor is watching people completely implode and literally beg for a reason to be voted out. Remember how the "Brains" started out last time? Absolutely classic. :peace: :beer:

    Yes Darnell deserved it. Any scuba diver knows you hold your mask when you jump in. On the other hand, did they think out which one would do best in competitions and which one worked the hardest in camp?

    In my opinion, not really. Sure he fouled up the challenge but there have been plenty of people who have made more egregious errors at challenges and survived the vote. He manned up and didn't make excuses. The problem for him was there isnt anyone on the Brawn tribe that is acting like an ass at camp which resulted in giving the tribe the chance to make him the scapegoat.

    Kudos to the gal on the brains tribe that had the anxiety attack. She did well on both ends of the challenge. Good for her in bouncing back.

    So far so good. It looks like Cabodia ;) is going to take its toll on this crew. :peace::beer:

    Hi Everybody! I was busy talking to a friend on the telephone so I only saw bits of Survivor. I taped the show so I can go and see it all.

    When I first saw Caleb Reynolds I just couldn't remember him from the Big Brother show. Then I remembered that he was one of the top survivors of the Big Brother show. Caleb felt that Derrick the cop was going to take him to the top two. Caleb disliked Princess Victoria and was real mean to her.
    Victoria was taken to the top 3 by Derrick. Victoria had a major crush on the cop. Caleb had dreams of becoming a Movie Star. lol. The cop only kept the 3 people that didn't really show a lot of interest of winning the money. I think they just hoped they would win. Derrick made it clear he wanted to win the money for his family and he did.
    It is going to be interesting to see how Caleb treats the Survivor gals on this show. Don't bet money on him to win. Caleb is just happy to be on another reality t.v. show.

    No, big mistake on the part of the Brawn tribe in my mind. Darnell made a huge mistake losing the mask but he's still more valuable on the brawn tribe than the blond who's doing nothing. I get the feeling she thought she'd be appointed to the beauty tribe and doesn't realize she's expected to pull her own weight.

    The worm in the ear... I'd have been calling for medic a long time ago!

    Jennifer with the bug in her ear

    I found it interesting that nobody had any ideas on how to get rid of the bug in Jennifer's ear. Jennifer was too upset to think straight and was in real pain.

    I know for a fact that a bug in your ear can be suffocated by putting baby oil or olive oil inside the ear. But since there was no oil available...... Jennifer should have tried to get it out by going into the ocean and filling her ear with lots of water. The bug would have drowned or gotten drained out of her ear. That is something that I would have done.

    I remember watching a t.v. medical show where a man showed up screaming and the doctors couldn't help him right away because he was too upset. They finally found a cockroach living in his ear and took it out.
    I also remembered the way to get rid of a insect that is living on your skin. You put vasoline and tape the area and the insect or worm will suffocate and die or run out the minute the tape is taken off.
    I learn a lot by watching the Emergency doctors t.v. shows.

    There are some very interesting personalities to watch on this Survivor show. The Asian man with the glasses is fun to watch since he is a gardner and knows a lot about plants. He sees them as living life forms. I agree since I love plants too.
    The doctor that looks like Obama is also interesting to watch. He acts real cool and happy. Gets along well with the other players.
    Some of the gals are starting to bond because they are females and have some things in common. The guys are looking at the gals to see which ones are the weak ones to get rid of. But they end up bonding with some of the gals.

    It Is going to be fun watching Survivor as I always enjoy watching this t.v. show. Lucy
