SURVIVOR PING!

Well, the original thread has disappeared for the moment, along with most of the rest of the archives, so this can be a temporary thread for this week.

Survivor: Gabon premiers tonight, Thursday September 25, at 8PM ET/PT, on SeeBS, of course. Eighteen new contestants will be dropped into the jungles of the equatorial African nation of Gabon. This season includes Exile (formerly Exile Island). Survivors who are Exiled will have a choice of receiving either a clue to a hidden immunity idol, or a form of instant comfort (food, pillows, etc.) The idea is to see if any contestants are dumb enough to take comfort over a chance at immunity.

The Survivors must outwit, outplay, and outlast one another to claim the $1 million prize. Who will be the sole Survivor?

Contestants from left to right: Michelle Chase, Charlie Herschel, Gillian Larson, Paloma Soto-Castillo, Corinne Kaplan, Susie Smith, Crystal Cox, Dan Kay, Ken Hoang, Jessica "Sugar" Kiper, Ace Gordon, Randy Bailey, Jacque Berg, Kelly Czarnecki, Marcus Lehman, Danny "GC" Brown, Matty Whitmore, Bob Crowley.

Episode 1 title: "Want to See the Elephant Dung?"

In this first episode, the contestants will divide into two tribes based on a good old schoolyard pick 'em. Gillian and Bob, the two oldest Survivors, will be given the honor of beginning the selections. Each selected contestant will in turn choose their next tribemate.

After the tribes are chosen, the Survivors will go immediately into their first challenge, which appears to involve racing to the top of a hill. The first tribe to the top will win a large bag of rice. In addition, the first individual from each tribe to the top will win individual immunity good for their first Tribal Council.

The next challenge will be for tribal immunity. Six players from each tribe will be tied together and will run through an obstacle course. At the end of the course, they must dig for bags of puzzle pieces. The remaining three contestants from each tribe must assemble a long puzzle of their tribe's flag. First tribe to finish wins immunity.

The tribes:

Fang Tribe (Red): Crystal, Dan, Danny, Gillian, Ken, Matty, Michelle, Randy, Susie.

Kota Tribe (Yellow): Ace, Bob, Charlie, Corinne, Jacque, Jessica, Kelly, Marcus, Paloma.

Spoilers (highlight to see):

Immunity Winner: Kota

Voted Off: Gillian

Back after the show with the recap.

I am a big fan of the show. I like the immunity idol idea but it’s time to juice it up again. ( I was a little bored with it last season)

Are your spoilers for certain or best educated guess.

A little bit on our local entry, Ms Cox.

I don’t think she’ll get as far as she thinks.

WooHoo!! It’s about time!! Looking forward to tonight! I have no pre-televised opinions on the contestants yet, but I’m thrilled that Survivor has returned. Since Hurricane Ike came calling there has been nothing on the 6 channels of TV that I’m currently getting.

About 95% certain on the winning tribe. 50% certain on the first boot.

A good wrinkle for each season. Have one episode where the person that gets voted out at tribal council gets to pick another person to join them. That would make the first vote rather interesting, especially if they let them know ahead of time that this will happen.

Does it sound like a long episode tonight or will there be two episodes?

Great idea!

Jeff could have a basket with 12 poker chips, using up one chip per T.C. The bootee gets to pick one from the hat. If it’s red, the bootee gets to pick someone else to get booted. Those two will be enemies for life!

Very good idea!

Why is it that each season there is a set of lovebirds and nobody seems to learn from past episodes that keeping them is really bad ju-ju?

Marcus Lehman (the phony physician) has a lifelong soulmate in homo Charlie Herschel. If he plays his cards right, Charlie will be watching his back (literally) till the very end.........

Advice to Marcus: Sleep on your back dude and don't drop the soap when Charlie is in the shower with you.......

Just now watching Charlie hit on Marcus in the canoe and man does that little fag make me sick!
