Re: Survivor: Nicaragua

um, the editors didn't show Brett at all. That's not the same as "being a follower" or "not playing the game". Trying to make definitive statements on Brett's gameplay is lolworthy.

Or anyone that season, really. They were too busy filling up time with Russell patting himself on the back in confessionals to showcase anyone else. Russell IS great TV, but it was almost like not watching Survivor for 2 seasons.

That's definitive? Gotcha. But regardless, Brett gets a free pass from you just because of how things played out? Wouldn't a more leader-centric/smart/charismatic player step in before booting Erik, calm his alliance down, and be able to convince them to boot a Foa instead? The answer is yes, though I'm sure you'll disagree for some reason.

Grunching, but John was also the most vocal person saying that all of Galu should vote for Russell during the key vote after Russell found the idol again. It was Monica of all people who suggested voting someone else off, but John said there was "no way" Russell had an idol. For being a rocket scientist, John played Survivor incredibly stupidly.

Survivor to unveil the Medallion of Power.

Maybe we should, maybe we shouldn’t.’”
How have we not been discussing this so far?

The MEDALLION of POWER!

Can't wait for a team to use it and then just get totally owned anyways, and then they all freak on whoever pushed to use it.

Re: Survivor: Nicaragua

Medallion sounds like a good twist; I assume they have to use it before they know what the challenge is (since it wouldn't be that risky to use otherwise)?

Also, fu Piotrek for making me think I was about to watch real Assistant Coach awesomeness instead of an admittedly classic Tyson moment. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aoUN3JeTDlg#t=04m48s is where the money's at.

Dave was the guy who made the "no way" comment; John actually said, "He [Russell] found the freakin' idol without a freakin' clue. That's what makes me nervous."

Interesting. I actually like this idea, at least on paper. I'll be interested to see the initial strategy behind it, as I'm sure people will screw it up.

I hope you're able to pick the opponent's participants if you use it.

Would cull some of that dead wood QUICK early game imo.

This will NEVER, EVER be topped as the perfect SURVIVOR FAIL moment

I only wish 2+2 had a thread for s11, just for that one moment alone

Cook Islands (you mean S13?) was the first Survivor thread I followed here. Archive search sucks but I managed to dig up these:
Early season / racist ban thread
Main thread
Finale

Looks like nobody posted anything on the week or two before the finale (lol?) so no mention of the fire challenge.

Ah you're right Cook Islands was s13 not s11, my mistake.

Nice find on those old archived survivor discussions, i'll have to skim them over
