New season underway! I'm excited. This Granddaddy of all reality shows still is my favourite.

First episode totally worth watching just to observe that Sandra-Tony head to head. When Sandra accomplished the ouster of obnoxious Tony I had to laugh several times. I don't want Sandra to win again and I don't think she has a chance but darn it, I can't abide that big mouth and big ego of Tony's. 


Won't miss Ciera either. I'm not sure how she qualified as a game changer. 


Looks like an early merge and only after that will the IIs come into play. So Tony hustling around searching for one was futile as they hadn't been deployed yet.

Man, Malcolm and Ozzy.  Hard choice but I think I need to go with Ozzy.  I don't remember some of the players so gotta go look them up.  Someone needed to tell Sierra (Gotta look her up) that her pretty blue nails won't stay that way long.

I didnt like Cierra or Tony the first time so I am glad they both got voted out.

I always liked Malcolm so I hope he wins this time. He is one of those players that are great at challenges and has a good social game and for those reasons people think of him as a big threat so they eventually get rid of him. He deserves to win this time.

I'm glad Caleb is back. I wouldn't mind seeing him win. He had such a tough break when he was on before and had to be evac'ed out. When he slipped and fell hard on that rock I couldn't help but think, oh no! Not again!

As to the big to do with Tony and Sandra, I don't like Sandra either and they need to get rid of her before she gets too far. I had to laugh when she was complaining about Tony walking around thinking he was king when she was going around calling herself the queen. Oh please!

I think I'll be in the majority when I say that I wouldn't mind seeing Sandra win. If someone is THAT good at this game, I want to watch it unfold.  We'll see, but I just don't think she has what it takes, I hope I'm wrong.

Glad to see Tony go.  He is a neurotic mess.  The whole spy shack thing is stupid.  

I like Ozzy, but how many chances does one guy get?  Ugh.  My early pick to win it all is Zeke.

Darn, darn, darn Caleb's gone! Not what I wanted, that's for sure. He gave Tai a kiss on the cheek as he exited. What a sweet guy. 


Sandra, the potential goat murderer, will soon depart I think. Lots of people are remarking about her running the game and that doesn't usually bode well for  longevity. 


Still not seeing enough Ozzy for my taste but hopefully that will come. 


I thought JT retrieved that II rather skillfully. No one had an inkling.


Don't like Culpepper on Game Changers anymore than I did on his previous season.


Dazz may be right and Zeke will come out on top. He has to play it cool and not get carried away with his own cleverness.

I thought they jumped the gun getting rid of Caleb.  I think they should have kept him for challenges over Hali.  Way too soon to be looking that long term. 

Man, I was afraid they were going to kill the goats.  I'm sure if Sandra knew she could have killed one herself, she would have done it.  Those chickens don't have a chance now that Tai is not there.

Didn't like seeing Caleb go so quickly either. I was glad that they were giving him a second chance this season. It doesnt make sense that they would get rid of someone that was good at challenges this soon. All it does is make them susceptible to more tribal council's due to losing challenges.

There were some years that I hadnt watched Survivor so I dont really remember Sandra but I sure don't like her. The cockiness is overwhelming. The QUEEN....seriously? And when they switched teams and she made the comment about on her old team she was leading the sheep to slaughter? Pffffttt! And that goat thing showed her to be really cold hearted. Nope....don't like her one bit.

I didnt like Zeke by the end of last season either so I dont want to see him win either.

I didn't want to see Malcolm go but I must say, that was well played. Tai is very smart, he could well win and I wouldn't mind one bit. 


Really if Sandra and Culpepper get the boot, I will be happy enough with any of the others winning. Sandra gets a little more annoying every outing and I have never liked Culpepper.


Ozzy is a challenge beast and I foresee him becoming a target soon. 


Amazing how this show still comes up with new twists and turns. I guess that's what keeps us all watching!

Man, having Malcolm voted off sucked but was the smartest move.  I'm trying to figure out if JP actually flipped or if his tribe is just assuming he did. 

Sandra is annoying me also and Culpepper hasn't been on my radar yet.  I guess Ozzy doesn't have a chance of finding a HII since Troyzan has it.  Hoping Ozzy stays safe.

Im pissed that Malcolm is gone. Every season he has been on there he has been targeted because people fear him . He deserves to win DAMMIT!!!!!

Im kind of confused with what happened during that tribal from hell. There was so much confusion that I was having trouble keeping up with what was going on. What exactly did JT do that ended up sending Malcolm home?

JT told the other group who they were voting for. So Tai knew to give the idol to Sierra. Malcolm is still ticked off at JT. Who can blame him.

That part I knew but I thought he did that to get them to all vote for Sandra so she would go. I guess I just don't get how this came back to bite Malcolm in the ass. Sandra at this point is a bigger threat to everyone. The way JT had his head down and shaking it after Malcolm was voted out kind of lead me to believe that he didnt mean for it to go that way. I got aggravated that Tai and Sierra had big smiles on their faces when this happened. Can't you at least have the decency to hide your smile when you oust someone who did nothing to you personally? They wouldn't like it if they were unjustly voted out.

Malcolm himself said they targeted him because he is the greater threat and that Sandra is an easy out anytime. He's probably correct. 


I got ticked off with Tai more than once on his season but I acknowledge his (usually) clever game play. Survivor isn't a game of good sportsmanship and fair play. The winner is generally someone who connives and plots better than anyone else. That's why the Malcolms, the Ozzys, much as we like them get the boot. They are too nice and appealing.

Your probably right about Tai,Les!I don't know exactly why he annoys me but he does! The ones I like are going! As you said that's not what the game is about, but it would be fun to see a "nice" guy win! Darn

I tend to lose interest when the people I like are gone.  I really wanted Caleb to last.  Just like everything about him.  Malcolm is a good player and I will miss him too.  Can't stand Sandra.  Love to hear the things that Jeff Probst has to say.  He really keeps the tribals so riveting.

It's official, Debbie is a lunatic! Why they are all running after her to placate her is beyond me. Even Brad is acting conciliatory toward her. 


Much as I don't want Sandra to win again I must concede - she knows how to play the game. She absolutely took JT out singlehandly. Made me laugh. But the remaining tribe members better get her out pretty soon. She's far too dangerous to keep around.


Looks like another shuffle of the deck next week. Seems too early for the merge so two new tribes maybe.

I always thought Debbie was weird....she just took it over the limit this time! Okay, she may have had a point but do you have to act like that to get your point across?

That was a great blindside. JT didn't see that coming. I still don't like Sandra though. I just don't like cocky attitudes like she has.

It's a shame the people leaving this early don't end up in rhe jury house. I would have loved to be a fly on the wall when Malcolm saw JT arrive

I've thought it before but these guys should really have psychiatric evaluations before they are able to play.  Debbie was delusional the first time around but way over the top this time.  Looks like she had parents growing up that told her she was great in everything and she believed them.  Now she needs a reality check.

I was impressed with Sandra's game play.  I also don't want her to win but that was sure some good playing. 

The previews show that a contestant is returning.  Wonder what that is all about.

I wouldn't mind Malcolm or Caleb returning, beardie, but that probably won't happen. One thing about Survivor, they know how to re-invent themselves and keep us hooked.

I really love Sandra's game play, but her attitude is terrible.  I am pulling for her to win because I'd like to see an undefeated 3 time winner.  It will never happen again.

JT was so blindsided, that is what makes this show so good.  I just love it. He was so confident!  When you are that confident, you are as good as gone.

Debbie is nuts! I kind of liked her on her last season, but she has really come out of her shell in a bad way.  Chill out lady!  We could care less that you have 6 pack abs and that you were a gymnast.

I hate when they bring back players who were voted out.  I just hope it's not Malcolm or JT.

The Queen has departed. Smart move, leaving her in any longer was super dangerous. She knows the game better than anyone and would have weaved another great web to trap the others in. I do applaud her gameplay, she deserves her spot in the annals of Survivor Greats.


Tai, although the most accomplished II locator is getting erratic. He should be high on any elimination list but with two idols it will take some cunning strategy. If the preview is to be believed Ozzy  is the next target but usually what we see previewed doesn't play out in reality.


Not sure what the purpose of Cochrane's visit was. DoLolly Debbie won't listen to word one of his advice.

Sandra almost pulled off a brilliant tribal council.  She is really good about stirring the pot!  She almost got Tai to vote with her and Varner. 
I think sending her home was the best thing to do for everyone elses game.  You can't leave someone like her in to win again.

Tai finding the 3rd idol of this game is crazy!  If he had a better social game, he could go very far.  I think he won't make it far past the merge.  

Debbie is a tool and I agree, she won't take any of Cochran's advice.

I believe if Ozzy's tribe doesn't win - they will go the easy route and send Varner home.  I don't think they won't to get rid of Ozzy just yet.  I really think the ones to watch out for are Zeke, Culpepper and Sarah.  Maybe even Aubry.  This has been a great and entertaining season so far!   Survivor is really thriving!
