Re: Survivor: Nicaragua

my theory: if you absolutely LOVE HvV you're kind of a fantard in some form. Convince me otherwise! (HEROES VS VILLAINS SUCKS)

Tell me something awesome that HvV brings to the table and I'll come back at you with why Nicaragua is even better.

As I'm currently enjoying Celebrity Apprentice, what do you guys think would happen if they did a Celebrity Survivor? Or would there not even be enough C/D list celebs that would be willing to try it?

Another possible twist you could do would be have an all athlete/ex-athlete route. Everyone is either an olympian or former NFL player or something. Having 20 people that are the equivalent of Grant would be pretty fun to see compete, although I suppose it would take away from the differing personalities when everyone is going to be super competitive and there's no "look at what a ***** XXXX is in the challenges."

Re: Survivor: Nicaragua

I love Grant, but if you stick 20 Grant clones out there, you end up with a really boring, strategy-less season without a dominant character. Basically, it'd be Nicaragua with less bikinis and more athletes. Not good.

Re: Survivor: Nicaragua

A good celebrity Survivor would never work because none of them would want to go without eating and living in those conditions for 38 days - and coping with that is def an integral part of the game.

They actually tried it here in Australia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celebrity_Survivor) but it didn't really take off. I'm a Survivor nut and didn't even watch it

Re: Survivor: Nicaragua

Maybe I'm being optimistic, but I think they could find enough people that want to put their name out in the spotlight enough to at least sign up for it without really understanding what they're getting into.

We might be about to see Grant's breakout strategy episode.

And I love how you think that no strategy confessionals = no strategy.

Re: Survivor: Nicaragua

No complex strategy, you nit. If you stick 20 Grants out there, and they all try to play the same under the radar, latch-onto-the-dominant-player strategy, it would be a disaster because there would be no dominant player.

Re: Survivor: Nicaragua

so im almost done with vanauatu. just finished the third disc so there are 5 people left now. ive liked the season a lot. there have been some blindsides and i wasnt sure who was going home a lot of the votes.

ive liked rooting for chris vs this woman tribe. ami is like a lesbian parvarti. she played a really similar game i think. rory was pretty crazy, he played pretty awful but was a funny storyline. julie is pretty hot, i hear jeff is dating her? i liked sarge and chad. Jeff was as aggressive this season with his questions as he is nowadays. he told some of the contestants they had smug smiles after a vote. i watched the season sort of knowing what happened. i think i know the winner and i knew when eliza goes home.
