Yeah Gabby is gonna be every nerdy guy's dream girl by the time this season is over.

I'm not as sold on Christian though, I think he has serious potential to become annoying.

+1, especially since it was preceded by him saying "I'm not going to waste energy building the shelter" and folks taking notice of his not working.

A few of the Gen-X folks from S33 have said (in podcasts & other interviews) that if 18-year old Will had made it to FTC, he wasn't getting the $$ simply because he was 18. Who knows if that's actually what would have happened, but it seems a good enough reason to stretch the truth.

Re: Survivor S37: David vs. Goliath Main Thread

Best premiere in a while. Editors are really getting better between the Christian rambling confessional, the subverted idol find, everyone getting a confessional and the build up to Pat's evacuation.

I don't think the Wrestler sounds dumb at all ? Honestly seemed pretty self aware to me, did I miss something?

Theme is the only awful thing about this. Strong cast.

I was legit surprised that it didn't go that way. Felt a little guilty, actually.
I was completely expecting that too as soon as he started the monologue. Although if it was going to happen they likely would have revealed it right away.

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.
lol it took you this many seasons to realize that? He does that everytime somebody might have to leave

+1, it always takes me a few episodes until I know 80+% of the names. I don't consume any preseason content fwiw.

Faces/bodies are obviously easier to remember.

I'm surprised that this show has survived for 37 seasons in the USA tbh . I agree the way Jeff acts is tilting, but it's quite understandable. If he wasn't calculated in those moments the show'd have probably lost a few lawsuits by now and would've been cancelled.

He could be a genuinely caring human being, instead of barely trying to poorly act like one.

Re: Survivor S37: David vs. Goliath Main Thread

I love to hate jeff but his actions during medical evacuations are fine.

He’s making things perfectly clear that pat didnt want to leave but the doctors are forcing him. He’s letting pat save face

feels like the david tribe is just going to keep losing, especially if they insist on keeping people who are terrible like lyrsa

I don't really pay attention to med-evacs, what did Jeff say?

Christian's facial expressions are absolutely priceless

Christian's reaction/ misunderstanding to Gabby saying "Do you want to play with me?" was awesome.

Still think Lyrsa has a better chance to win that people think.

Couldn't tell if Gabby was just being an insecure girl or if she was purposely playing Christian

I was as confused as he was, considering their talk during last ep. I thought it was great edit because they must have talked so much that his confusion is probably justifiable, just not to us.


loved the natalie conversation with the black guy. he's trying to point out that she lacks self awareness but she is having none of it, like any person who lacks self awareness would do.

Solid moves by Elizabeth and Christian to pull that alliance together. They have control now, though they may run into the same problem the fans did on Caramoan where they only had good challenge performers left to vote off and had to kick off one of their alliance members.

Re: Survivor S37: David vs. Goliath Main Thread

Gabby was insecure, yes-BUT she was clearly using her guile to get Christian to go along with her.

If (no WHEN!) they get down, imagine him misunderstanding the context of "do you want to play with me" when she really means it. She is definitely going to need to make the first move.

I think he's more self aware and much less on the spectrum than speculated here.

They are kind of like Sheldon and Amy, at least a non sitcom exaggerated version of them.
