Survivor 41: Official Thread

It’s been over a year since we’ve last seen a group of Americans from different walks of life form a beachside society and vote each other off in the pursuit of a million dollars. Now Survivor is finally back for season 41, in what feels like a different world than when we last left things. But what hasn’t changed is the concept of the veteran reality series, now in its third decade on the air, including a group of soon-to-be-starving contestants that are already hungry to play.

The hair definitely doesn't help, r20, but I thought it was more than that. He looked like he'd lost weight and the wrinkles and saggy skin were very evident. He is going on 60 so it shouldn't be shocking but he's always been so youthful and vibrant that he came off much younger. But he looked every one of his 59 years last night.

This is the first time in 40 seasons that I didn't tune in and watch live. I decided to watch The Challenge live.

The woke stuff is a bit much - especially because I still imagine middle America is the majority of the audience they have.

The "guys" thing is an issue as it negates at least one gender and implies supremacy of another. I've felt uncomfortable using it for years, just in reference to female friends, but I've never been able to think of a better alternative.

It was interesting that Jeff just subtracted the object (person or personhood). I would've thought if they were going to raise the issue, it might have resulted in a more sort of "teachable" moment.

I don't think there's anything wrong with having the conversation.

I liked the pastor but I get the sense that "fast" Survivor is going to truncate the format considerably, robbing it of interesting storylines - the way they were all racing around at that tribal there didn't seem to be any clear alliances or rhyme or reason - going through the motions doesn't make for an interesting game. Seems kind of amateurish to me.

I also don't understand, in this day and age, how someone like Tiffany can hope to compete when she really didn't bring much fitness to the game. I understand she was an alternate or whatever but maybe she should've been preparing, just in case. She wasn't doing anything in that last challenge.

It seems quaint and polite by today's cutthroat standards, but the first castaway voted off was so traumatized that he committed suicide before the premiere.

It was a stupid, emotional move to not vote Xander out. The lesbian made a huge mistake by not insisting on running the girl squad vote. She had all the information and allowed herself to be talked out of the best decision, voting out a strong player with TWO known advantages. Black girl and fat mom are a duo and will vote lesbian out when it comes down to it. Lesbian was a much more natural duo with neurosurgeon.

I just watched the first 2 episodes. I've been watching Survivor faithfully since season 2 (I wasn't even really aware of season 1 until I somehow stumbled onto the season finale episode), and without question this is shaping up to be the worst season ever, by far. The producers really fucked up this season with casting these mostly awful and boring contestants, and the excessive "social experiment" and "wokeness" messaging. And the whole issue about no longer using the universally-accepted term for a group of mixed gender people, i.e., "guys"?? FFS. By the way, the challenge immunity idols always look like tribal males. That's so fucking sexist!!

In general, ever since Jeff Probst wrested more control over the production of the show (as Executive Producer), the quality has suffered. It used to be more about surviving the elements and more exploration of cultural themes. Seasons used to be named after the different locations they were filming in.

Now it's just gimmick after gimmick and hidden immunity idols.

Only men think this. Do men feel included in 'gals'? There is a ton of this kind of language all over the world and it shapes perception.

If "gals" were the accepted term for a group of men and women, and had been in use for multiple generations, to the point where no one thought twice about it because it was automatically interpreted to mean a generic term, then yes, I'm pretty sure men would feel included. You're using an apples and oranges comparison. To suddenly introduce "gals" as a generic term and then compare it to "guys", whose universal application has been around for generations, is unfair. I do think it's a good thing to re-evaluate its usage in this day and age, but to turn this into some incredibly vital topic of wokism, as Survivor has, is a bit much and does a disservice to much more important issues of equality.

Yes, the show is still doing well. Especially considering how long it's been on. It's also relatively cheap to produce, so unless the ratings drop big time, the show isn't being canceled anytime soon.

The show has a very loyal fan base. I've been tempted to stop watching a few times in the past, but could never give the show up. I can't remember any season being as lackluster as this one though. Hopefully things pick up. Not sure if stick with it to the bitter end if it at least doesn't pick up a little bit soon.

Thanks for suggesting Australian Survivor. I decided to check it out on Paramount +.

Watching the first season they have right now, which is the second Champions vs. Contenders. I was a bit confused at first because I thought the Champions were all former Australian Survivor winners, but now get that it's one former winner and the other champions are supposed to be the tops in their fields.

The eye candy factor is definitely a plus as well - Matt on the contenders side and Sean too.

I do think it's funny to hear how much of Jeff's 'patter' is scripted for the host of the Australian version. Definitely feels like Survivor should.

Just finished Australian Survivor Champs vs. Contenders 2 on Paramount +. What a season! Beautiful people - even the older folks were all attractive, good Aussie genes, beautiful scenery and camera work.

Great challenges - exciting too. The challenge where they had to see who could swim longer against the river current - simple but so exciting.

Great cast - David, The Godmother....but I think Dirty Harry is my favorite - would love to watch him go up against some American players.

Highly recommend it if you have access to Paramount. Everything that feels missing from this season of Survivor is there.

I’m with you, R34.

I know it’s tedious when Trump is inserted into any and every damn thread, but doing so here is actually relevant.

Why? Why? WHY? are any of you putting money into the pockets of this piece of shit British TV producer that not only normalized Trump, but withheld tapes that would most likely have swayed on the fence voters and threatened anyone that worked on any of his shows from doing so.

Fuck Mark Burnett. He aimed Trump at the US like a fucking weapon.

R128, not everyone agrees on how far you should take rejection of Trump, I hate the bastard and if me not watching Survivor would make him and Burnett forever go away I would do it, but boycotts seldom work and if I boycotted everything that was involved with promoting Trump/Burnett/Republicans I would have to boycott, CBS, NBC, AT&T, United Healthcare and so many companies I couldn't count them all. Nearly every major company worked with the Trump administration to get what those companies wanted.

I have watched Survivor and have seen every episode of every season since it began, long before The Apprentice was ever an idea, I enjoy Survivor, I am guessing you have never been a fan of the show so giving it up is nothing for you. I won't shop at Hobby Lobby or Chick-Fil-A or watch Fox News, that is my choice but I don't go around expecting the world to follow what I do.

I've watched the show since about the beginning, and this season is, so far, the worst ever. There are too many advantages. The cast is forgettable and unattractive by "Survivor" standards. Constantly bringing up their sob stories feels like the show is forcing you to like them without giving you a chance to get to know them first. The "Come on in, guys!" discussion was a tone deaf failure.

In interviews, Jeff said he wanted "new Survivor" to be "fun," but this is anything but.

The dimples look like that start at his cheek all the way down to his chin. Very unreal looking. As for Probst, I many times turn the sound down during challenges as he's incredibly distracting. I'm sure some of the contestants must yell at him to "Shut the fuck up, Jeff!" especially during endurance challenges, but it's probably edited out. Plus he's forever been interjecting stuff at tribal council that might reveal some secret which wasn't meant to be shared with others -- which really should be investigated like the old gameshow scandals of the 50s.

I liked Shan at first too, but the more I see from her, the less I like her. Last week on twitter she cast racist aspersions at Jessica from Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X after she made a post of players faces at tribal council and didn't include a person of color.

The little Lezzby really gets on my nerves....I have a feeling Survivor isn't going to be the last we see of Zander. He could probably make money as an escort in Hollywood....He likes antique shopping...Definitely gay...

I don't know how that guy Xander didn't smack that chick Liana when she asked him to give her his hidden immunity idol, cause he has immunity from the vote tonight and she says she just wanted "to hold it to confirm to her that he wouldn't play it". I think that she was trying "pretty girl logic" - that a good looking female can get what she wants from a guy just because....

It was nice when he shot her down and she just looked like "whaaaa?".

Dang, I was hoping Liana would be voted out. I think Xander wished he'd played his idol.

Up until tonight, Xander has been pretty savvy about how the vote was going. Sorry to see him screw up this time. Not that I particularly liked Evvie, but Liana is a much bigger threat/bitch.

by Anonymousreply 243November 18, 2021 7:53 PM

Liana’s no bitchier than anyone else. SHE’S PLAYING THE GAME. Xander is smarter than people give him credit for and he’s a threat that needs to be taken care of quickly, especially considering that he wrote Liana’s name down at tribal council. Oh, but she’s the bitch? You racist queens do too much.

Can’t believe they haven’t gone after Shan yet. But Naseer was a good move because he was a strong player

by Anonymousreply 247November 18, 2021 10:11 PM

Spare me this ‘playing the game’ bullshit. Liana was openly saying about Xander that she “hate(s) his face” and “I just hate him” at the immunity challenge. That’s playing like a straight-up bitch.

Shan, who lies as easily as breathing, was cheering both Nasser and Xander on while not even being on their team for getting stew. That’s what playing the game looks like.

by Anonymousreply 248November 19, 2021 1:35 AM

Yeah, Liana gets on my nerves, but I think that's because she comes across as bratty and entitled. Shan -- with all of her messy qualities -- has been through some stuff in life and is at least actively playing the game.

Oh fuck off and die, you little gnat. As R248 pointed out, she made nasty comments about Xander that had nothing to do with game play. Can you imagine the outcry if Xander had said of Liana "Look at her face. I just hate her face!" while she was doing a challenge? Liana is a fucking bitch.

"David vs Goliath" is now on NETFLIX so I have been watching a few eps at a time -- and what a different show it was. So many likable players including two black men (Carl and Davey) that have impressed me with strategic moves and smarts (Davey may be one of the few who never spilled the beans to anyone that he had an Idol in his pocket). We don't need all the silly woke stuff or stacked decks or even sad stories, just good people and good players.

It also helps that it has major eye candy in Dan, Alec, John, lawyer Nick... I even find nerd Christian hot (and adorable, odd that he never came back for more seasons).

by Anonymousreply 254November 19, 2021 8:19 PM

I can’t believe that the black players are considering banding together, on the pretext of giving something back to the community after such a terrible last year.

As was noted in the big brother thread, if the white players tried such a tactic I’m sure there would be a strong negative reaction.

Shan just couldn't rein it in. She had to push to get her way, all the time.

Yeah, I don't see Ricard lasting too much longer either. Causing the discord between DeShawn, Danny and Liana might save him for another week or two though.

Funny how Zander is seemingly off everyone's radar now. A challenge threat and has an (not so) hidden immunity idol and an extra vote.

DeShawn seemingly tanked any chance he has of winning tonight. I can imagine many would want to take him to end.

I've been on DL for 20+ years, R262, so I'm not exactly "lately." If you understood the communication dynamics of DL better, you'd get the context of my comment. It's directed at the repetitive trolling in the BB threads, not you as an individual poster, even though you may very well be that troll. That's not the point. You bringing it up represents that trolling. And addressing you is actually referencing that trolling. This lack of understanding the ways we communicate in this anonymous environment is "what's wrong with this place lately" for me. It's not at the level it used to be. It's become mainly subpar whining, mediocre bitching, and witless responses.

I thought it was a great episode! I ended up with mixed feelings about Shan, who has a complex and polarizing personality, but like others said, at least she went out with class. Ricard and Erika emerge as bigger players.

I think Liana is put out to pasture soon.

I don't think the editors care much for Liana. They show her as being dim whenever they get the chance. Like last night when Danny approached her to talk about voting out Ricard. They could've edited out her inept guesses. I think she must get voted out very soon.

Funniest moment was when Heather asked what Shan was singing when she unconsciously starting humming her mafiosa Jaws -type theme. I couldn't stand Shan, who thought she basically shitted eskimo pies. I don't know why did called out DeShaun so much as a snake though. Also, what's the deal with Danny? No one ever votes for him to go -- do they think cause he's a likely millionaire from being a sports pro, no one would vote for him if they carried him to Final 3 or Final 2? He hasn't made any power moves either -- he's usually with DeShawn.

Tonight: If Ricard doesn’t win immunity then the tribe is ignorant if they don’t eliminate him and if they don’t, he deserves to win. If Ricard does win immunity, then they need to go after Xander to flush out one of those advantages he has or someone should Cirie his pretty ass. IMO, Ricard and Xander are the two best players right now.

Interesting how in spite of Lianna’s speech about race, which I thought was one of the best tribal meeting speeches in the history of Survivor, the white contestants, and dumb ass Erika, voted Lianna out anyway rather than Ricard.

Yeah, I know some of you racist self-hating miserable queens will have an issue with Lianna’s speech but, well, GO TO WHITE SUPREMACIST HELL!

Since Erika and the white contestants didn’t get rid of Ricard when they had the chance, he deserves to win.

This reminded me of the tribal that included a trans man. He was outed and it was very emotional and everyone cried. One young women said her whole world view had changed on trans perople. And then the trans man voted the young woman out.

It's just a game. Getting all emotional and profound about it is kind of stupid. Plus the black alliance effed itself by voting out Shan. Don't blame the others.
