Survivor: Running Around In Your Underwear For 15 Minutes Of Fame

Let's swim!
Welcome to Survivor South Pacific!

As always I have great hopes for the season. Those hopes are often dashed due to various producer-driven twists tossed in for Good TV, but I remain forever hopeful.

Just to rev up my attitude before we begin, exactly where is this competition being held?

“South Pacific” is a pretty vague description. I mean, it could be Tahiti, Fiji, Samoa, Tonga, anywhere in Melanesia or Micronesia. Calling it South Pacific is lazy. It’s like saying Europe.

Okay, enough about that.

I have done something new this season. I have not read the bios. None of them. I’m going to go into this recapping a bit cold.

Yes, I know about Coach and Ozzy. It’s hard to miss that bit of news.

This returning “veteran players” is getting so old. Is there actually a shortage of people who want to play these games?

TAR dragged back the folks needing second chances. Big Brother just did it again. And Survivor does it entirely too often.

I mean, really, if you are a true fan of the show for which you are applying, you know everything there is to know about these returning people and their game play.

That should give the new kid on the campus a huge advantage, but it never does.

I know that one year Survivor had to actually recruit competitors to fill their quota. Perhaps they are still doing so.

Just sign up people who are looking for their 15 minutes of fame and an opportunity to run around in their underwear. Who cares if they understand how the game works?

Well, I care.

And I think sitting through even one more episode of the Fish and the Dragon Slayer is nuts.

Now, I do applaud the kid who is supposedly going to redeem the reputation of the Hantz family. That’s kind of interesting.

The rest of this boatload of castaways shall remain, at least for the first week, a mystery and a surprise.

Yes, I have the official CBS bios at hand as well as all of Stimpy’s well-crafted opinions. I shall refer to them as needed when I get to the “who the heck does this guy think he is?” point.

By the way – an interesting technique.....
