Survivor S38: Edge of Extinction Main Thread

New season starts this coming Wednesday with the premiere! 4 returning castaways and a new twist that will allow someone to get back into the game (rumored) if they can last long enough on Extinction Island.

Here's a summary of the twist:

Extinction Island will be a thing, however, and both refer to this season’s insane twist: Every player voted out of the game will have the option of going to Extinction Island, where they’ll wait for two chances to get back in the game, at the merge and at the end.

What will they do on Extinction Island? Sit around, and perhaps behave terribly to encourage others to quit.

Anyone can leave Extinction Island whenever they want, but they can also stay for the length of the entire game, doing nothing except waiting. They won’t compete in challenges, or go to Tribal Council—at least not at first.

Eventually, after the merge, all of the players on Extinction Island will form the jury, meaning theoretically, there could be a 15-member jury and a final three. (There are a few spoilers if you want to know what possibly happens, and those spoilers include names of people.)

I'm looking forward to see how Aubry and Jon do as both two time returnees since they were both strong players in their seasons.

Let's use this thread for discussion about the season and of course cue the typical first few posts about how much Survivor sucks even though it's been on TV for almost 20 years.

Aubry was one of my favourites during Kaoh Rong and I thought she deserved the win over Michele.

2nd. I don’t get the haters.

I have a bad feeling about this season. Not sure why.

Victoria cracks me up. I think they put her on this season just in case she's an early boot so she can provide some entertainment on Extinction Island.

Wardog has a bunch of min cashes at the WSOP. I think he wants to be Tony and Dom but will end up being Joe Mena 2.0.

The twist will probably suck (don't they always) but Survivor usually makes up for it with great casting.

Let's go!

Reading through the bios it looks like everyone is a long time fan and wants to play survivor specifically not just random adventure or reality TV. So that's a good sign. Cast looks pretty good.

If you haven't seen this it's pretty cool. A look behind the scenes of Survivor, Day 1 (No spoilers at all unless you don't know anything about the cast):

I'm admittedly a management geek who loves seeing how complex human systems actually work.

I really like this about Survivor, seems like they’ve been going in that direction lately. Wish Big Brother would cast like that

It's unclear as yet, though I think I've seen it said in an article it's going to be significantly different from RI. Will at least be similar though.

I don't mind any twists that essentially give Joey Amazing more shots at winning this game. Come at me

They probably decided all the housewives would be too confused.

Wentworth has such a smugness about her for someone who really hasn't done **** in this game. I can't wait for her 3rd boot.
