Wow, what a list of favorites, or more along the lines of ‘familiars.’ I can’t see one on that list I’d be in a hurry to hope would win. The fans? I see a few likely candidates. I guess the more popular Survivors have learned to follow the steps of another and demand compensation for their appearance.

Let’s see... A season of bickering vs Survivor fans without a clue. I hope the challenges are in a better location than a rice paddy this time around.

There are two seasons per year. The first season began in 2000.

Which survivor demanded compensation for his appearance? I don’t remember.

The general location is the same as last season although they might be on different beaches.

It’ll be a homecoming for Malcom. He probably never left the islands after last season.

they started filming the new season a few weeks after the previous ended.

"Favorites" is a bit of stretch kind of like "stars" in Dancing with the Stars.

Most of those returning I never liked the first time. I doubt many of the 10 fans liked any of them either.

And why was one person returning the first person voted out & then eliminated in their season? I would have preferred seeing Miss Teen Utah Angie Layton.

In my role as Survivor fan #5 I seldom if ever say anything negative about any of my Survivor peeps.

But in this venue I feel like make a rare critical observation.

This team of favorites will be destroyed in my opinion. I agree with the earlier poster it’ll all be bickering and other than Malcolm there’s no 1 with any guts or stamina.

On a side note there maybe a public viewing party with several former survivors up in the San Francisco Bay Area on February 13th. If anyone is interested in going send me a message and I’ll make sure you get the information.

The only one I like among the favorites is Malcom. That kid was solid in the last season. Phillip should be funny, he was a bit off in Nicaragua. Brandon Hantz is there because of Russell, my favorite Survivor of all time.

Survivor Erik

Profession: Ice Cream Boy (soda jerk)

Famous for letting girls talk him out of his immunity idol

Famous quote from prior season: “I don’t want to be an ice cream boy. I want to be an ice cream MAN.”

Now Malcolm is not a Fan Favorite. He returned last May without his Survivor appearance having aired. But he might have won Player of the season if Lisa did not have such a large, pre-existing Twitter following. Yes, she encouraged them to vote and she narrowly won.

Well, they couldn’t call it “Fans vs a Weird collection of past contestants many of whom were a bit weird on their season “

Did you notice the one (2 seasons ago) that had that homosexual (can’t remember his name) that grated on everyone’s nerves and constantly informed everyone he was Republican?
That was a definite set-up... and he was FAR from Conservative.. :p
on IMDB, all the loonies there go apesh!t FOR homosexuals and will protect them with anything except their own life... YET, because he made sure that everyone was 200% sure he was a Republican, they despise him as much as a real Conservative..

Show what hypocrites (HypoCrats) they are (IMDB crowd).

Without watching the bios, can anyone tell me if there is any homo lifestyle pusher in the cast?

I am willing to watch the show if there are homos but not if it is part of their bio and agenda.

Thus for the first time in years, last season I didn’t watch. I watched the previews and there was a dyke pushing her thing. I thought, no, not invited to my living room. It just keeps happening every season and I try to look past it but I am sick of it.

Feedback appreciated.

I believe that the Favorites are just people that the producers picked because they thought they would generate interest.

Yep. Although it seems that this crop of favorites is a bit weak, compared to past seasons of favorites, all-stars, and heroes vs. villains. Still, its always interesting to see people taken out of their element into the wilds of nature. It’s also always great to see people who think they are so smart fail so bad.

"I wonder if we will see a budding romance between Andrea and Malcom???"

If they are on the same tribe, I 'd give it a 95% chance. Otherwise, 60%.

Well we know that they will all start out on the same tribe but where they will end up only the islands know — and they are not talking — yet.

I’ll be pulling up the foot rest on the Lazyboy, leaning back and getting ready to watch the show.

My bet is the Fans come out of the block running while the “Fav’s” take a few days or circling each other before they settle down.

Fav’s have to got to TC and vote off the first player - at least that’s my hope.

Mark Burnett has sold us out. It’s the season of suriviving the “oh, we’re so good looking!” cool high school kiddies and nasty pink undies, I may schedule washing the dog and cleaning the cat box on Wednesday evenings. There was simply no reason to evict Francisca. What was the point other than crazy panties ordered it done? Amazingly, poor little Erik is the smartest one there but lack of gumption will send him quickly down the walk of shame.

Phillip is a phony and he doesn't need to parade around in his underwear unless he's thinking of hitting on the chicks.....

Check out his Bio, first of all, he claims to be "CEO" of Enter Software Sales. There is no such company unless he's selling exercise videos out of his house.

He also claims he served in the Army as a "Special Agent"........WTF! No dates? No rank? Sorry but this dude never served in the military and he's a fraud!

Lowest ratings ever. Down 23% from last season. Uh, hello, viewers don’t want to see a freak in pink undies. And we’re tired of retread players. And how about casting a cross section of the population rather than the cool kiddies who haven’t outgrown high school.

Last season I watched sporadically and this season no desire whatsoever with the exception of last night just to see who's on.........

I think the show has run it's course and people are tired of watching a bunch of folks trying to lie, connive, betray and screw their way to a million dollars.........In other words, everything that is wrong with society today.

This is shameless -- and with another Hantz there too. They've been there for 3 days and they are all still clueless about the idol.

If Russell had been there he would have found both of them by now, and been in a secret alliance with all the "dumb blonds" on the island.

I think Shamar is a nut, in fact I think there are a number of nuts on the beach.

And Sherri ain’t no Boston Rob - that mad dog she has on a short leash is going to drive her alliance batty.

When are these girls who have been fans of Survivor since they were 11 going to learn that when you hook up on the island you get a big target painted on your back.

I was waiting to see if Reynold was going to give his idol to his squeeze after he showed it to everybody. That would have saved Allie’s tush and sent Shamar packing. But I guess it wasn’t true love.

I’m thinking that there are two powers behind the scene there: Laura and Michael.
