Survivor Philippines: King Russell And The Court Jester Yell At Your TV Recap and Commentary by Kathleen September 20, 2012
Suicide by bus.
Welcome to Survivor. Weíre in the Philippines.
This season we have some new and some returning old ideas. Iím thinking they are going to be good. At least I hope so.
Weíre back to three tribes.
Yes, itís been tried and the results last time were not so wonderful.
But, itís a good idea in terms of shaking up the dynamic. There is less chance of a lopsided power team early on. Thatís good.
Got thoughts? Post them at the end.
I like the balance on age range this time. Thatís better than the tendency lately to have lots of young eye-candy and one or two obligatory Old Farts.
The two ďnameĒ contestants shouldnít be a distraction the way poor Jimmie Johnson was.
And although I hate the idea of former players returning, Iím ok this time. These three players can at least get closure.
And, praise the Lord they didnít bring back James, Colton and the guy who had toxic constipation or whatever it was.
If you havenít checked Stimpyís take on the individual players, take a break and do so now. It will help you follow the recaps. You'll see links to all of them on the left. Each opens in a new window for you.
Itís a big crew with three tribes and Iím going to stumble badly for a few weeks trying to keep track.
You are warned.
Thatís said, Ö Welcome to Survivor.
As we meet the survivors, here are some vocabulary words to watch for:
A word used only for females and small yappy dogs. In this game I guess itís supposed to mean cute with attitude.
A throw-away word used by all contestants to describe themselves. Example: Chef Joe on Big Brother. I rest my case.
This keeps being said in previews by Russell Swan. Russell, my man, when you give more than youíve got thatís how you got evacuated last time.
And, do I personally remember these three returning players? Sort of.
