Official Survivor Season 35 thread part 2

I'll only declare this season bore if Lauren wins.

by Anonymousreply 211/25/2017

You mean boring? I quite like Lauren.

by Anonymousreply 311/25/2017

I dont mind Lauren, she may not set the world on fire with her sparkling personality but at least she speaks and is involved in the game. JP, who has contributed a nice body and not one other thing, is boring. What happened with his "power couple" romance with Ashley? Did that fizzle out? Is he so dull it's not worth any air time? Did she clap eyes on Devon and forget JP exists?

Is the bulldyke going to win?

I wouldn't be surprised if Lauren is in the final 3, but don't think she will win even if she is. I'm guessing the final 3 will be Ben, Lauren and Chrissy, with Ben winning.

In Cole Medders exit interview he revealed that Mike put a fake idol around Joe's neck at tribal council, why on Earth they didn't show this on the show is beyond me.

[quote] “It wasn’t shown, but Mike pulled out his idol before the votes happened and put it around his neck,” reveals Cole. “And he also had a fake idol at Tribal Council that he put around Joe’s neck.” That’s right, it seems the Sex Doctor also has a flair for the dramatic and had continued to collect materials for his fake idol, including a real idol note.

“He had been collecting tassels off the tribe flags and had created a fake idol and kept the write-up for Joe’s past idol that he had played and wrapped it up in that to make it look like a legit idol,” says Cole. “It looked real. It definitely convinced everyone, I think. Once they put those two idols around their necks, that’s when everyone went, ‘Okay, guys. The plan is still the same: vote out Cole.”

It seemed like a game of chicken. (Is that what it's called?) ...where they wanted to strike at the threesome, before the threesome used Mike and/or Joe against them.

I'm more intrigued about Devon's plan for Ben to become a double agent. I think it's a kernel of a good idea, but (a) how can you trust Ben to play both sides... it gives him access to flip back on you later; and (b) why put Ben in that power position instead of suggesting yourself for that role?

I liked that Ashley made an effort to strike against Ben tonight, but was disappointed she didn't follow through. (I'm guessing she couldn't get Devon to go along.) I think it would have been the right move for her.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one put off by Devon tonight. I gasped when he said Lauren was almost as smart as him. While Lauren is surely not a Rhodes scholar, what exactly has Devon done to demonstrate expert game play or vast intelligence? It's pretty clear Ryan chose him as an ally because he figured he was smarter than Devon and it was Ben that had to inform Devon that Ryan wasn't trustworthy. This secret agent plan is about the most we've seen from Devon and it doesn't even really put in him a power position. I don't want him to win the way that guy "Fabio" won his season. I don't like a lot of the people left but almost all of them deserve to win the show more than Devon.

JP may be bad in bed, but I'm willing to find out I didn't find him dull in his Ponderosa video. He reminds me of typical low key straight guys. Des thought he wasn't dealing with his blindside. My BIL is a firefighter, and I know several others, and most of them deal with things similarly. They keep adversity in check and don't "process" it with others. I like his attitude and outlook.

My take on his lack of screen presence is that he didn't become one of Probst's typical bros or man crushes. He played a chill game and Jeffy didn't like it. I don't think we saw him speak for the prior three episodes which is uncommon. Something was up with that, not just that he was boring.

R61 did you watch Cole's and Joe's Ponderosa videos? Those two straight guys spoke with emotion, you could see and hear enjoyment and sadness in their videos. JP was only interesting in his video because that is the most I have heard him talk all game, but he did it in a monotone, I don't really give a shit video. The closest JP came to showing emotion was when he found out he lost 22 lbs not 10 as he expected. I am not hating on JP, he was great eye candy, he just wasn't great TV.

JP just didn't give them anything to show.

Usually the women are ignored over the men, but there have been invisible male players too. Bret from Samoa and Carter from Philippines come to mind right away. Neither of them had much personality either.

by Anonymousreply 6511/30/2017

They don't put a bunch of potential winners on the show. They put some A type personalities to fight it out, at least one nutbag and some hotties to loiter in the background. Clearly that's why Cole and JP were put on the show. Maybe Devon was too, but he's stepped up and contributed even if he's giving himself more props than he deserves at the moment. If JP wanted the limelight he needed to speak or have some insights, maybe do a bit of plotting and scheming. He didn't so he gets no air time.

by Anonymousreply 7812/02/2017

The Survivor producers can throw shade at JP because they didn't like the way he "played". But (1) there is no right way or wrong way to play. Just a couple of seasons ago, Michelle won by basically being nice to everyone, not being a threat, and just playing a strong social game. And (2) they cast him. During casting was JP a huge, colorful, boisterous player who talked about making big moves? I doubt it.

I get that they didn't show much of him on the show because his gameplay wasn't the most interesting. But to not give him any final words after his eviction, and limit his post-show press (according to Rob Cesternino, who didn't do a RHAP interview with him) is rude and unfair.

I'm not even a fan of his, although he was wonderful to look at. But it just seems like they're shitting all over him when he did nothing wrong.

May be Miss Jeff Probst had hard on for him and he didn't reciprocate him

Jeffy digs alpha dudebro dick and gets off when they play the way he wants them to. These guys get his seal of approval very jock/frat-like be being called by their last name throughout the season. I don't recall him ever doing that with any woman that dominated.

There's no way JP was out there 30 days and gave them nothing. He even mentioned how he consistently caught fish and fed his tribes. Being a provider/challenge threat who is then blindsided always makes the cut. Again, the fact he was almost invisible the last 3-4 episodes, along with Jeffy's comments and what was mentioned by R79 tells me something went down. And it wasn't Miss Probst on JP's cock, much to her obvious irritation.

JP's demeanor suggests he is probably very chill about the whole thing. He got an adventure millions want, but few have had. Peachy (Shoutout to the TWoP fans!) will ignore him at the finale.

[quote]Yes. This is why Jeff is disappointed in JP’s “bait and switch” performance on the show. Quiet, low-key people don’t make it through the audition process on any reality TV show.

Link? The only comments on JP's casting from Jeff that I've been able to find (from the article linked above):

[quote]When he first came in [for casting], he was very confident. He's a very likable guy. He's a fireman. He's clearly chosen a profession that's dangerous and heroic. But when I saw him on the boat this morning, I did have a feeling... is this a guy who is still young enough that he's used to being the alpha? He's good-looking. He probably gets lots of attention from women. He's charming; guys want to be around him. He's a fireman. That will open a lot of doors. And on Survivor? No one cares. In fact, those are three reasons to get rid of you.

So my impression is that they cast him because he was good-looking, confident, athletic, charming, and has an interesting and heroic occupation. But no mention of a bait-and-switch, or of JP claiming to be something he isn't. Jeff isn't afraid to go there, he's commented in the past when someone acts completely different between casting and gameplay. (Rick from South Pacific comes to mind.)

I'm sure they may have thought that a good-looking, confident, charming, athletic guy would make for good TV. But often those attributes don't come across on screen, or if they do, they still might not be enough to make someone compelling to watch.

Lauren let's people know she has an extra vote AND an immunity idol

Ben targets Christie to find a fake hidden immunity idol

I'm thinking half the jury will abstain from voting for a winner.

I'm thinking Ben would be the villain of whatever final three there is.

I'd like to see Devon and Ashley make it to the three with either Chrissie or Ryan.

I am not loving Dr. Mike ......... he's been a buffoon and is just making it further because other targets have been bigger.

At this point the jury is Healer heavy so he'll probably get voted out to the jury soon enough. And two of the '7' have been blind sided so they can't be counted on NOT to vote for Mike as well.

I'm kind of annoyed with Ben, though at least he got to play the idol correctly.

Ben is getting an edit that suggests he will be eliminated before FTC. Ryan got a quieter edit post merge.

With that in mind, the elimination order next week would be Devon/Mike-Mike/Devon-Ben-Ashley-Ryan-Chrissy.

Desi- Ashley

Devon, Mike- Ryan

Cole, JP, Joe, Lauren, Ben- Chrissy

R117 Desi might. I dont think Cole or Joe would vote for Mike. Cole doesnt really care that much for Mike and Joe would most likely vote for the person with a better gameplay.

by Anonymousreply 12812/06/2017

Oops I'm R127. I think they might get rid of Ashley first, since she's such a physical threat and obviously Ben, Chrissy and Ryan would rather have that necklace around them since theyre big threats. Get Mike on board, and Ashley is out. So I guess Mike gets be on FTC. Update:

Desi- Mike Devon, Ashley- Ryan Cole, JP, Joe, Lauren, Ben- Chrissy

It doesn't matter if Ashley wins every immunity from here on in, no ones giving her a million bucks. The jury looked at Ben like he was a God. If anyone else wants the million bucks they better get rid of him next week.

Ben's storyline is being manipulated as a fake winner edit. They always show him as a winner potential accompanied with grandeous background music that no other castaway has. Others also constantly say that he is a HUGE threat. No way he's winning this now.

Reviewing everything, it definetely looks like Chrissy is winning this season

by Anonymousreply 13212/07/2017

It seems like Ben is getting the hero edit (my wife, my kids, the country, battling PTSD), but I can't stand him. It seems like they all are afraid to face him in the finals and want to get him out, but the way the editors are making him out to be the greatest, I'm guessing he wins.

I don't dislike Mike, but he's a bad player. Really, really bad. After his play a couple of weeks ago, where he tried to draw votes on himself and play his idol (when he could have kept his mouth shut and held on to it), he has an opportunity to deal with Lauren to earn another idol but throws it in the fire.

Last season, when the final 6 Tribal Council had one person win immunity, FOUR people playing idols, and someone go home without a vote cast, Survivor should have realized there are way too many idols and advantages in the game. Guess they didn't learn anything.

Chrissy has a good winners edit starting with the puke up front and almost going home save for a rescue she didn't even work for. Rooting for Devon but I think he's too much of a stud to stick around to the end. I was pretty sure he was gone this week based on his on camera interview.

Probst likes Dr Mike. He likes when professionals and nerds come on the show, rather than a bunch of yoga instructors and surfers, he thinks it gives the show more credibility. He also likes an underdog because the public like an underdog, it's often good for ratings although I'm not sure it's helping much this time. And Mike is bumbling his way through this and somehow surviving each tribal. Probst loves that too, it keeps Mike in the middle between underdog and possible surprise winner. Plus Mike gets heaps of air time so you know he's a favourite.

I've hated Burnett and Probst and their All-American bullshit agendas since way back when. Remember the reunion when hot model John Kinney was about to speak and that lardass Sarge interrupted and said young Kinney hadn't lived yet and they moved on to fellow fatrass redneck (the one who got kicked off when the all women team saw him giving signals to the men on the other side) who also yacked about his equally fatass wife and kids being the meaning of life -- and left poor John dangling without getting to say a word. I thought then, "You fucks should only hope you could be a handsome young stud like John living the life and traveling all over the world." But that wasn't the Burnett message, then or now.

For such a good show, they sure are assholes.

Can't stand Ben and assume he will be voted out next unless he wins immunity. EVERYONE voted for him. How often do you see an unanimous vote (save Ben's vote) this late in the game. All of the other players should just all write down Ben's name every time until he's gone.

I thought Ryan was getting such a strong edit pre-merge, but he really has faded into the background now. Probst loves Dr. Mike and I'm sure we'll see him again on another season.

I'm surprised by some of the Probst hate here. His cheesy narration and love of the alpha male is one of the main reasons to watch. It's basically camp at this point.

I get wanting to split the Devon/Ashley pair. But why would you boot Ashley over Devon? Which one of those remaining players stands a better chance against Devon in the finals than they would vs. Ashley?

While I don't believe the show is totally rigged ("Here, Ben, have an idol"), I do believe there are ways that production influences the idols. The players all talk about once the idol is played, it goes back in "rotation". Why make things so predictable? If that's the case, where's the challenge in deciding whether to use it or not? Secondly, players have said that they know they're on the right track finding idols because the cameramen are following them. If someone goes off by themselves in an area with nothing hidden, the cameramen won't necessarily follow them because there's nothing worthwhile to catch on film. So anyone with half a brain can figure out the area where the idol is, and just spend time looking for it there.

Can anyone answer when and where they shoot their confessionals? How is no one around?

by Anonymousreply 26912/16/2017

Where they camp is apparently very big r269. They are all followed every minute of the day by the camera (Unless they're going to the toilet). So it's not that hard to sit someone down and ask them a bunch of questions away from the rest of the group as there is a large area they can roam. And i dont think they're allowed to interrupt or listen in on one another's confessionals. This is why someone can stumble on an idol clue or an idol which no one else has.

I don't think she made a wrong move the whole season, except to be such a strong smart self possessed and tenacious w o m a n. I hate that they called her last immunity a bonus final "advantage" to learn that Ben was back in the game and she would never get rid of him and he was likely going to win. She's fucking gracious as hell under the circumstances. I haven't watched Survivor in about 7 seasons until this one. I enjoyed it but I am done. Vets. feed my family. PTSD.

Agree that some of these 'advantages' this system were BULLSHIT.

Chrissy did NOT get a final 'advantage'. Ben's ass was gone. It was a given. Instead Chrissy got to choose one person to take instead of two (Devon and Ryan were ONLY going to vote for Ben ............. DUH). And Chrissy made it clear she wasn't open to causing a tie breaking fire challenge)

That was a PRODUCER final advantage. I'm sure Jeff had two potential advantages in his pocket. Both advantageous to BEN (one if he won final immunity and one if someone else did ..... )

That crap was just like when Devon (I think) showed up at tribal council with an advantage/reward that ended up being that he didn't get to vote at all.

Such horseshit. Did I miss something ? Wasn't the reading Chrissy - 2, Ben - 3 and Ryan - 1 when Jeff said ' Final vote and winner BENN

And Ben's social game sucked on every level ............... he was aloof and didn't get to know other players well socially AND he blew up his own alliances (the alliance of seven by turning on them earliest by playing the rogue soldier to a smaller alliance of four ......and then blowing up that alliance of four by turning on Lauren)

That second 'Ben bomb' was more necessary because Devon-Lauren-Ashley were gunning for him too.

But he was not likeable in his confessionals or in his cocky play ..................and Mike played it better when he was the 'back up against the wall' player ............... his INDIVIDUAL IMMUNITY IOLD run was more impressive than Ben's HIDDEN IMMUNITY IDOL run

by Anonymousreply 51912/20/2017

R518 ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, I was scratching my head. It wasn't that Ben obviously wasn't going to win with four votes. But there were TWO left and Probst said 'FINAL vote and the winner is Ben'. There were two votes left and it would've been more intense if it was three Chrissy, three Ben and then the real final vote awarded a winner.

Weird.

And there was Devon giving a throwaway vote to Ryan ............ reminded me of that Boston loser Rodney gave a vote to Will

I guess ultimately Devon was pissed that Chrissy brought goat Ryan along rather than letting Ryan go home in a fire starting challenge (and having a solid battle to the win between Chrissy-Ben-Devon)

by Anonymousreply 52012/20/2017

That fire challenge was blatant producer manipulation to tell the players they don't have the ability to vote out someone who can build a fire.

I've watched this show from the start, missing only two seasons as they've aired. But I think I'm done. Maybe I'll change my mind come the spring, but right now I feel ripped off by that F4 twist, and the ridiculous *constant* hiding of immunity idols. I really enjoyed when they let the players play, and I was ok incorporating a couple of idols. But this season had NINE (Ben - 3, Ryan - 2, Joe - 2, Mike - 1, Lauren - 1). Way, way too many.

Yes but the Big Brother jury came up with a surprise ending. Even with all the game play manipulation on Survivor, I thought Chrissy would still beat Ben based on her gameplay and masterful final council. Why did she only get two votes? Why did Ryan throw his vote away, guaranteeing his enemy the win? Bros before hos? I don't really get it. Desi, Ashley, Devon, JP, Mike and Cole should have all voted for Chrissy. Lauren of course is a moron, because Ben was no friend to her. Chrissy only received votes from Mike and Ashley, so Devin would have won if he made fire.

Mark and Jeff were obviously perturbed by their macho Alphas getting axed before making it to the end so this season they devised that bullshit final 4 “advantage” and kept it under wraps until it was obvious Ben needed saving (again) so they introduced it like it was planned all along.

With his teammate who is bound to be known as "the other guy."

Guaranteed, the F4 twist would disappear after Ghost Island. They just had to include it next season to cover up the fact that they made it purposely for Ben and his hat to not get voted off.

I feel sorry for dumb people who think Ben had a knack for finding idols. On that last one you can practically hear the camera crew saying, "Look there, Ben! Look! Right behind you!"

How long did it take them to come up with "Well Strung?" Anyway, Probst is basically saying that the twist was used to ensure the HE and BURNETT'S choice for who should be in the final would make it.

EXACTKT R599 ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Probst basically said that it isn't up to the players to decide final three .............it is up to the producers ....... oops, I mean 'fate' through a fire making challenge.

I can't believe how furious I was Wednesday night and now I can't give two shits about the winner or the twist.

I was rooting for Devon, but Chrissy played a better game.

I've always appreciated Survivor for 'mixing it up' each season ....but between the weird new final tribal council, the 'make a fire to the final three' 'advantage' ........... it's getting to be too much.

But it still is the show I've stuck with the longest in my life.

R538, I assume Chrissy doesn't want to close the doors to future Survivor opportunities.
