Survivor: Cagayan — Brawn vs. Brains vs. Beauty is the 28th season of Survivor. It begins Wednesday, February 26, 2014 on CBS at 8/7c with a special two-hour episode.

Official Survivor site at CBS

Wikipedia article


There will be eighteen new players - no returning players - divided into three tribes of six players each, based on brains, brawn, and beauty.

As with the last season, this season takes place in Cagayan, Philippines. This is the fourth consecutive season that Survivor has taken place in the Philippines

It has been reported from several sources that there will be no Redemption Island. I hope this is true. I guess we'll find out.

Celebrity cast members include Miami Marlins president David Samson, former NBA all-star Cliff Robinson, former San Francisco 49ers cheerleader Morgan McLeod, professional poker player Garrett Adelstein, and MMA fighter Sarah Lacina (she's also a cop).

Aparri Tribe (brawn - orange buffs): Cliff, Lindsey, Sarah, Tony, Trish, Woo

Luzon Tribe (brains - green buffs): David, Garrett, J’Tia, Kass, Tasha, Spencer

Solana Tribe (beauty - purple buffs): Alexis, Brice, Jefra, Jeremiah, LJ, Morgan

“Brawn” has a Jersey City police office. After the success with Angie Layton , we have the 2009 Miss Kentucky Teen USA.

So we have an NBA star and the President of the Floriduh Marlins.

I’m going with the Brawn Tribe — they have the best tats — tAts — TATs.

Brawns vs Brains vs Beauty.

Hmmmm, lets see….

The physical challenges will mostly go to the Brawny tribe, while the puzzle challenges will mostly go to the Brainy tribe.

The problem is what type of challenges will they have to even it out for “Beautiful people”? Extreme full body makeovers? Fastest bikini waxings?

I see the Beauty tribe being the first booties, followed by the Brainy tribe. (unless the producers decide to mix things up after the first two tribal councils.)

That was a great opening —

A few more days with each other and the psycho tribe won’t be around anymore and they won’t be missed.

Lesson of the night: Never leave a scorned nuclear scientist alone with the rice.

That’s OK. Hope you didn’t miss the show.

Wow, I like a show with all new players.

With that said, the “Brains” team sure didn’t have any “survivor brains”. Just about everything they did as individuals and team was a mistake.

But starting out with a six person team really brings out the care you need to take in picking alliances. Garret’s choice to go after Dave first - and then his open meeting - flipped Kass and now she’s low person in a three person alliance.

The other teams had a number of individual “mistakes” that will not come out until they go to tribal.

Is it just me, or is this the DUMBEST tribe of “smart” people ever?

And what is with that “hair stylist” & her dreadlocks? Talk about a walking contradiction!

And could they have found anyone gayer than Brice?

I think this season is gonna give Survivor Thailand a run for their money as the worst season ever!

Yep

Dave, the executive with the Floriduh Marlins, who is supposed to have business savvy and understand the game, shows up in an expensive sportcoat and then unilaterally decides to get rid the biggest and strongest teammate at the beginning of the game when that is the time when big strong guys are needed.

No wonder the Floriduh Marlins can’t win with executive decision-making like that — and it all went downhill from there.

Can you imagine the next three days there as they all stare hungrily into the fire at the spilled rice with Spencer commenting.

Gawd, that mess of hair was nasty! I wanted someone to take the hedge trimmers to it. Not me, though. I wouldn’t want to get that close to it out of fright of what might jump out. Did you see how she was flopping it back and forth while trying to swim? Ugh!

At least Brice admits he’s gay. Garret is even more gay and needs to come out of the closet. I don’t care what his bio said, he is flaming. Whaa, Survivor isn’t fun! Whaa, this isn’t a vacay and they expect me to work and get all sweaty. Then he’s posing in a field of flowers and showing off his package in that underwear, ick. First episode and they already had at least one fuzzy spot hiding it.

And what’s with all the underwear? Did they not realize they needed to pack their swimsuits? David’s suit might be silly at first, but the jacket would have been a good idea for keeping warm, as a sun screen and a pillow. But come on, people, wear swim trunks and bikinis. Tight or old nasty loose men’s underwear is creepy and distracting in not a good way. Women in bras and panties is just stupid when they could have worn a bikini that is lined and better elastic. It’s more than obvious they are showing off for the cameras rather than playing the game.

This season, or at least this first episode is bringing back the first Survivor where we get to know the contestants. About time. A big thumbs up, thanks, Mark.

J’Tia would not be eating dinner after Tribal if I had anything to say. I’d also have immediately smothered the fire and spent the rest of the day picking out the rice. Don’t you know that she’ll be the one to find Garrett’s immunity idol. She should have been the first out and Garrett second. Kass is this close to going and needs to keep that “honesty” in check. Tasha is going to keep her sista’ J’Tia on the island no matter what. This isn’t PC, but they should put all four blacks on a team and then we’ll see a real game without all this voting on color. Ok, how many are now scared to their bones of J’Tia being anywhere around nuclear engineering?

The Cliff/Woo bromance needs to be nipped in the bud or they’ll go far.

Tony is already blabbing about being a cop after he said he’d not tell. Anyone else burst out laughing when he said he wasn’t going to tell anyone about finding the immunity idol? He’s also going to tell about his little spy corner which will get him into big time trouble.

Everybody who saw that episode and everybody at her workplace have their hands up waving.

Why do I get the feeling that Spencer will drive that point home next week before he is given a heads up by production to look into Garrett's pack.

My money is on J’Tia being nosey enough to snoop in Garrett’s bag and claim the II so production better pull Spencer over during the first restroom break after the TC to clue him in.

Buh Bye to two alpha males:

Garrett Adelstein:

Why You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: Dedicated 2,000 hours in preparing for the strategic, social and physical elements of Survivor. Did everything from 50 hours of yoga, to over-analyzing every episode, to mastering slide puzzles to ready myself. I essentially devoted my entire life to preparing for this adventure for the previous 6 months.

The weather report for the next 30 days on Cagayan is [was] rain and lots of it.

We can expect a lot of challenges, ii searches, meals, strategizing, and tribal councils in upcoming episodes to be conducted under torrents of rain.

According to Jeff — this is Survivor the way it should be.

Well the testosterone in Jeremiah finally surged at the right time. Getting rid of Brice was a no brainer and the only right thinking male thing to do. And I’m sure production also approved.

It’s possible from the previews of next week that the Brawn tribe will be at TC next week and it could be Tony on the chopping block — making that 4 men voted out in 4 weeks setting the stage for an all girl final.

BTW ask your bio prof to let class out minute earlier on Wednesdays as Survivor qualifies in some academic circles for biology extra credit.

Well, I said I thought this may be the worst Survivor season ever and last night’s episode certainly didn’t give me any reason to change that opinion.

To put it bluntly, it was about as exciting as watching paint dry.

The only highlight of last night’s episode was watching Brice prancing down the walk of shame, after getting his torch snuffed.

I do have to give Jeff credit though, he is certainly earning his pay with this bunch of losers

Well...it wasn’t the ONLY highlight. Any scene with Morgan in it doing something is a highlight in my book. I admit, she pegs my “hotness” meter, but she actually has a brain working behind those beautiful eyes. I hope she stays awhile so we can see what she’s got.

I mean...

Never mind.

What you mean is that you are glad that they only got rid of the one boob on their tribe rather than the two.
