I will be handling this thread on a temporary basis only, and as time and health permits. You people are used to - and deserve - more. Hopefully, someone more qualified will step up and take this over. :)
Official Survivor site at CBS
Survivor: Nicaragua is the 21st season of Survivor. It will moving to Wednesday nights this season. In fact, it begins tonight, September 15, 2010, 8/7c.
The theme this season will be Young vs Old. The players will include a former NFL coach (Jimmy Johnson) and an amputee triathlete champion (Kelly Bruno).
Survivor host Jeff Probst, has also announced that the Hidden Immunity Idol will continue to be used in the game. However, as idols have been found too easily the past two seasons (most often by Russell Hantz), or as the show's producers have dubbed it, "The Russell Factor", the idol will be hidden differently. The clues to the idols' locations will be visual rather than written as in past seasons. In addition, the tribes will be vying for control of a new item, the Medallion of Power, that, when used, gives an advantage in a challenge, but is then transferred to the other tribe.
Let's meet the players.
Here are photos of the players.
Listed below are links to player profiles. They include a video clip of the player, which is, unfortunately preceded by a short - but annoying - ad.
La Flor (age: 30 and under)
Espada (age: over 40)
Since I’m currently operating without the official ping list, I’ve been able to ping only a few of you.
I would appreciate it if any of you could ping interested parties to this thread. Thank you. :)
Former NFL coach Jimmy Johnson is a contestant this season. Please feel free to ping your list to this thread. :)
Thanks for the effort! I’d volunteer, but I’m inept.. I’m going to miss the first night:o( I agreed to sub in dart league.
I’m hopelessly under-qualified to host this thread. Perhaps this will force someone to take it over. :)
If you miss it and can’t record it, you should be able to watch it online tomorrow at the CBS site.
They showed a clip before the ballgame the other day of Johnson telling his tribe that he knew there was no way any of them would ever vote him a million dollars so he would give help to anyone that wanted it to get further in the game.
Please add me to the ping list. I personally know Wendy, by the way and will be cheering her on. She’s an awesome person and I hope and pray she does well on the show.
I was going to ask. I was just waiting for your thread to get going. I really hope I can see it tomorrow but co-workers will blow it. LOL!!
Thought you might be interested in this thread. Best wishes to your friend on the Espada team.......she’s a goat rancher? Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I really admire her military credentials.
Jane is from my neck of the woods so before the 1st show starts I’ll be pulling for her.
My view may change after I get the first look at how she’s doing.
Add me to your ping list, please?
Someone, please add me to the ping list.
Jane is from our hometown of Gaffney, SC. We’ll be pulling for her also. Just found out about an hour ago she would be on Survivor.
Sweet! Nice to see Survivor on FR. With all humility I am Survivor Fan #5 and looking forward to tonights premiere.
If you are in NYC there is a viewing party in Manhattan where a few former Survivors will be. Mad River Grill on 82nd and 3rd Ave. Public event. $5 donation to Wisconsin Alumni group required. Wish I could go ...
Thanks RR! Wendy is a take-charge, do what needs to be accomplished type person. She loves to dance and sing, and loves her animals, all of them! We met via her cat, Dermis.
Thanks for the ping. Almost forgot about it...
I haven’t watched “Survivor” in years. But, I’ll check it out tonight just to watch Wendy.
She named her cat “Dermis”?
Now that I think about it. “Dermis” is the Latin word for skin. (Took Latin in college.) That’s kinda funny.
