Re: Survivor S37: David vs. Goliath Main Thread

this wrestler is a moron.

Gabby is sneaky cute

I think the Puerto Rican lesbian has a good chance of winning. She killed that first challenge.

Angelina immediately is the biggest villain...what a stuck-up *****.

Same. I'd put the over/under at 4 for number of times she ends up saying it at some point during the season.

So funny that the lesbian Puerto Rican chick thought to ally with the lesbian cowgirl bc they're zomgSODIFFERENT. lulz

Christian is so Aspy it's fantastic. I'm curious to see if 2p2 embraces the f out of him or gets super annoyed with him.

Liking most of the contestants for sure. Hey, when smarmy Southern villain-ish guy had the confessional about how everyone was being so vulnerable and he wasn't used to that, then started talking to the tribe about his mom and crying, did anyone else think it was going to cut to a confessional where he admits he was totally BSing, and that his mom is fine a la Johnny Fairplay/dead grandma? I was legit surprised that it didn't go that way. Felt a little guilty, actually.

Re: Survivor S37: David vs. Goliath Main Thread

That was a very good premiere. Probst forcing the theme was easily the worst part of the episode. The David's all seem really different to each other which is fun to watch.

Gotta feel bad for Pat. Wonder if he got any extra $$ for having that happen on the boat between challenges.

Cop made the most number of mistakes by far yet still get's a golden edit, I think he's the Michael of this season. "You got fat because you were a cop?" was funny

Elizabeth is actually straight, BTW. She left a 5 month old to go play.

Re: Survivor S37: David vs. Goliath Main Thread

Really like the cast. basically everyone is interesting.
I usually like nerdy guys but Christian has to be one of my favs so far. Really really like him. Also enjoyed the vietnamese girl.
Thought for sure that guy talking about his mom dying was pulling a Fairplay just to fit in. Would've been more interesting.


Talking attractive ladies, brunette in the cop alliance >>> 19yo >>>> rest of the girls so far.

Wondered the same about Pat. It's completely their responsability to take care of them during the boat ride I'm sure.

The 19 year old blew her cover by starting the cry orgy. Also why would anyone care if she's actually 19 instead of 22?

Re: Survivor S37: David vs. Goliath Main Thread

Probst forcing the theming is always the worst. But i think i just cant stand Probst.

Ive sort of come around on the idea of the themes. It gives us a framework to begin developing the characters. The show doesnt need it imo, but with only 40 minutes per week to get to know people, it’s good to have a jumping off point

Re: Survivor S37: David vs. Goliath Main Thread

Best cast IMO in a while - seems like pretty rock solid game players. Especially funny how the David tribe divided into pairs almost immediately by either black guys, freaky lesbians or nerds.

Goliath tribe I'm picking wrestler guy (Johnny?) as my dark horse for final four. Seems like he has a pretty good ability to downplay all his physical skills and isn't dumb. Would love to see him make merge and hook up with the rocket scientist and I think they might ship it.

Natalie in yoga pants is better than most women in bikini bottoms.

Angelina probably takes my prize as most annoying first episode person.

Yeah I hope Christian lasts. He's going to make for some fun confessionals.

No one else really jumping out at me yet as being particularly interesting, but it's early.

Probably in a 19 year old's brain, a 22 year old is considered significantly older and therefore taken more seriously. When you're that age, it's the difference between being a college freshman and a college senior which feels significant.

So if Patrick didn't get evacuated, the one going home was the older, black woman, right?

Re: Survivor S37: David vs. Goliath Main Thread

Surprised you all liked this episode so much. I guess characters are interesting but man, Probst was ab-so-lutely unbearable for me.

That whole retarded intro was the nut worst set-up. Lets add a super easy slide puzzle and a near impossible 15 block cube and let the david team decide who gets what. I like aspy guy but anyone on that boat would've solved that within a minute.

At the end when that guy got injured it's so painfully obvious Jeff doesn't give a rat's ass about what happened but just wants to cover his own ass and the show. Everything he says is so calculated it's chilling.

Anyway, team gabby & christian I guess.

No the guy who's mom died, the black woman is on the goliath tribe because she is CEO of some company.

Re: Survivor S37: David vs. Goliath Main Thread

+1 to liking this cast more than most recent ones.

+1 to Christian

+1 to Bi

+1 to Probst being annoying

+1 to feeling bad for Pat, the way he got injured. (although I doubt he would have lasted long, perhaps not that very night anyway)


What do you guys think about how most challenges will go? Seems like Goliath has a pretty big physical advantage, while David has a pretty big puzzle advantage. Could see lots of challenges going down similar to this one, where Goliath takes a lead, and then the question becomes, can David make up the time on the puzzle or not. Which probably comes down to how much quicker Christian is than Dr Alison.

Considering every season where they arbitrarily split the teams up as a means for a gimmicky theme, they end up abandoning it two or three weeks in by mixing the tribes up, we're not really going to see that many challenges with the current dynamic. Enjoy it next week and possibly the week after, I suppose.
