WOW. We’re 36 seasons in, and we’ve all seen plenty of stupid stuff. We may have a new contender for the top spot. Maybe top 5 anyway — it’s hard to talk about a new #1 when someone is actually holding Erik Reichenbach’s immunity necklace from season 16. Still…. this was pretty dumb.
IT IS LONG OVERDUE. There were too many douchebags on this season. Now there are fewer douchebags. It’s not just a reality show, it’s a lecture on how evolution works. You rarely find people too insufferable to be on Survivor, but damned if they didn’t do it.
This episode is different in that two of us are on death’s door. I mean, we’re all going to die someday, but this week some of us kind of see an upside to it. But at least it’s sunny at Althea’s house! Remember us fondly!
Not everyone likes reality TV. We here at The Survivor Typecast do what we can to highlight how exciting this show can be. So it’s aggravating when the show doesn’t help out and drops a boring turd of an episode. What’s this? Stephanie is going home? Wow we didn’t all see that coming. A little […]
You would think we would be learning their names by now, wouldn’t you? We stare at them for an hour a week, and Jeff keeps saying their names, and every week there are fewer of them as they head off into Loser’s Lounge or into some hellish parallel dimension. Either/or. But no, many of them […]
Did everyone know there was a Morgan? There’s not any more, but there was for like a minute. She got clocked by Broke-Face Joey flailing his arms around shouting “I have an idol! Don’t tell anyone! It’s not just a stupid shell!”
Despite the best efforts of technical difficulties, sickness, and BOMB CYCLONES, we are back! Late but here! Things are different now. We have changed our format. We have changed our personnel. We are super streamlined and ready to get our Probst on!
At last, we put a Ben-shaped pin in this season. Poor Ben was doomed until he was saved either y a badly timed twist or straight-up producer interference. Either way, CBS happily handed him $1 million, so good for him.
The next-to-last episode! Survivor continues to clear the board before the finale, and they are clearing the pieces we forgot were playing the game. But whatever the hell they’re doing will work out for someone, and we’ll find out who soon.
It’s always fun when shows like this have a bunch of good strategists and one terrible strategist who just wants to burn things. By that standard, this show is VERY fun because we have people LITERALLY burning things. We’re almost to the end of the season, and everyone is looking a little wild-eyed.
