It's a different type of game though. Phil doesn't really have to relate to the players as much as the probster does. There is no council or anything similar in TAR

I really like them both...

Perhaps if the reality shows continue...there will be a special Reality Show Host Celebrity Survivor...shall we tally the votes :p

Sorry, no disrepect to Phil and/or his fans intended. Agree with PFD about the different between the two host tasks. Back to normal programming.

After watching the September 29th episode I really, REALLY hate Naonka. She is a mean spirited creature who makes Russel look like a sweetheart. (Am I wrong or did she seem to suggest that she'd burn Kelly B's prosthetic limb if she had the chance?)

I can't wait til Naonka gets booted off. She's a total B$%*H !

You're bang on Brent...the wife and I replayed that statement...just to be sure we heard correctly...yikes

Yeah...I actually liked Russell because of the way he played...nothing was personal...he was all-game...Naonka has deep issues...that I don't really need to know...

Hopefully she gets turfed...although it looks like she is in the alliance that will make it to the merge.

For the past couple of series, Probst has been egging them on at tribal much more than he used to... and that is TV gold :D
It sure seems that way. But they only show a small part of Tribal - which I understand can last hours. They just may be showing more of Jeff's "egging" than in the past - not sure.

I am sick of survivor, too. The formula needs to change.

It's been year after year of of the same thing. Everyone is starving and half bitten to death. Women who were once voluptuous eye candy become saggy remnants of their former selves. The guys end up looking like Tom Hanks in Castaway. We get it already. It's old.

Why not change it up? There should be creature comforts and tools buried all around the 2 camps, found by solving tree-mail puzzles. It would be cool to watch the smarter camp prevail over the other by using their brains and not physical superiority. Each team would have a building specialist, a puzzle and cypher expert, a 'Les Stroud' type, etc...

I forgot. That would require too much thought.
:(

Notice how so far this season they have combined the reward and immunity challenges into one challenge. Wonder if that's because they know the "old" team can't do a challenge every day.

I've noticed they've spent a bit more time now on the tribal council, which is cool.

Next week seems to be a merger. Hopefully it's true and not the editting.

I hate when shows divide people by age/gender, etc.

I wonder why Dan was picked to be a member of the Old tribe? He doesn't do any of the challenges that takes place in the mud "because he has bad knees"?
My wife and I can't figure out why NaOnka hates Kelly and gets away with making cruel remarks like how she would love to destroy Kelly's artificial leg.

I don't think it is a merger. The promo was cleverly edited to make it look like that. It is too soon for a merge. I think what is happening is that the tribes are going to be reorganized, like they did a season or two ago. Everyone drops their buffs, pulls a coloured stone out of a bag (Or some such mechanism), and the voila, we have two new teams, with mixed ages!!

If they do this, it is no longer "Old" vs "Young". What is the point of having these "Matchups" if they combine the teams so soon into the competition.

I also wonder how much is planned up front, vs decided as the competition progresses. One of the challenges in Survivor is that since the full rules are not spelled out from the outset (like when the merge will occur, what other swaps of people will happen) - you really can't decide on a strategy and stick with it.

Yes, it could be 2 new teams which is good for the old folks who are now outnumbered.

New friends, new enemies. It keeps people on their toes.

It's not the first time, in fact, I think they've been doing this Pre-Merge Tribal Shuffle for a few seasons now. It does play havoc with one's strategy.
