I guess in terms of raw emotion it's hard to beat Rob vs Russell...
James vs Rupert. There would be 0 blindsides and it might be the most boring show ever.

i would love Cesternino vs Parvati... i understand the connection is bad but they are 2 of my favorites

Cesternino vs Mariano
Cirie vs Parv

Re: Survivor: Nicaragua

They all sound like terrible ideas and you're all idiots for liking the idea of returning player seasons.

lol, not counting guatemala, seasons with returning players are way better than the average season to me. If there were a large enough pool of players to choose from (it's not close to large enough) I'd never have another season with randoms.

The most interesting thing they could do with returning players for me is to have the exact same 20 (or 18 or 16) people come back from a previous season. Same tribes and same challenges in the same order. I think that would be really awesome to watch.

Agreed, it's been sounding like all the even numbered seasons from here on out will be returning players, I'd have never had the balls to make that move. Though with the popularity of last season, and it being the best season of all 20, maybe it's just a no-brainer.

Re: Survivor: Nicaragua

I guess it depends on how long Survivor will last. If 13 million people keep watching, it should last for a while. If it does get to S30, I would hate 5 seasons where people return. I have no problem with once every 4 or 5 seasons.

Re: Survivor: Nicaragua

Now one idea I wouldn't mind is if someone dominates the game like Russell did in S19, that if they start a new filming before the previous season airs (and it isn't returning players), bring that person back and see if they can dominate again.

Same could go for someone who gets blindsided. I wouldn't mind an idea like this

EDIT: I know S19 and S20 filmed back to back but with all returning players, Russell was put out as a huge player. if it was an unknown cast the other members wouldn't know the difference

Re: Survivor: Nicaragua

I would never want to see a Heroes vs. Villains again. It was a stellar season BUT instead of that I would prefer an "All Heroes" and then "All Villains" seasons but no combination. Have them battle it out and see Heroes turn villains and the other way around.

I would prefer them filmed with a new cast in between but for this idea not to happen until a few seasons of new casts have happened.

sadly parv said hvv was her last survivor. it jives with what she said in one of the online segments in hvv, that winning survivor took soooo much out of her and it seemed like she was questioning whether or not it was worth it to be out there.

Re: Survivor: Nicaragua

You guys realize the Player A vs. Player B theme only works if both players are megastars, right? Like, you could do it with Russell and Boston Rob because they're both insanely popular, polarizing, interesting leaders with huge egos. You can't do it with more than a handful of other people, though, and my guess (if this S22 stuff is even true) is that this is a one-time (or zero-time) thing.

EDIT: I guess they sort of did it already with Steph and Bobby Jon, though they were really just returning players. Three days into Guatemala, no one cared that they had played before, and they couldn't have carried the "vs. theme" the same way Russell and Boston Rob could.

Some of you enjoyed the Survivor fantasy game that Nicholasp27 ran last season, so I started up a fantasy pick'em challenge for this season over in POG. Join up and make your picks, should make watching every week just a bit more interesting.

Forgot this is on Wednesday now. 2 weeks!

Here is Probst on S21 a little bit. There are potential spoiler ideas that Probst says.

Re: Survivor: Nicaragua

Armchair critics who moan about poor quality while not contributing to the thread themselves are more annoying imo. We can do little more than speculate atm, feel free to complain if the thread is still lacking once the season's started.

On-topic: Rob C. is doing a Survivor 21 preview podcast this weekend according to his podcast's FB page.
