Survivor Cagayan: The Amazing Evaporating Brains Recap and Commentary by Jennifer T.
February 27, 2014
Welcome to the two hour season premiere of Survivor Cagayon: Brawn vs. Brains vs. Beauty!
First off, I want to say that I'm so excited to be recapping Survivor this season.
I've watched the show since the first episode of Season One and have only missed one season since. I never got into the first season that Sandra Diaz-Twine won and since I did see her win in Heroes vs. Villians, I don't feel like I missed much.
The show starts and in a voice over Jeff announces that once again Survivor is taking television's greatest social experiment in a new direction. Is Survivor really television's greatest social experiment?
I'm not so sure. I think Big Brother or even early seasons of The Real World might have a shot at that title, but I digress.
The eighteen contestants will be split into three tribes that represent the qualities they most rely on in their daily lives.
The Brain tribe has an average IQ of 130. What? I don't find that too terribly impressive at all. There is a elementary school here in New York city that only takes children with IQs above 130 or so and they have more applications than they can handle.
If the school can find over 100 five year olds with IQs above 130, surely Survivor could find six people with higher IQs to represent the Brain tribe.
Got thoughts? Post them at the end.
Spencer is an economics student who describes himself as a diabolic genius. He looks like a twelve year old kid.
David is a president of the Miami Marlins. That's not the first career I think of when I think "genius."
Kass is an attorney and a mom. She says she is more cunning and ruthless than 95% of the population.
Jeff moves on to introduce the Beauty tribe so I guess we'll meet the remaining three Brains later.
Morgan is an ex-NFL cheerleader; Jeremiah is a fashion model with a Appalacian accent and Jefra is Miss Kentucky. Yes, her name is Jefra. That's not a typo.
The Brawn tribe relies on physical strength. Cliff is an former NBA player; Sarah is a police officer and a mixed martial arts athlete and Tony is also a police officer.
A few more contestants introduce themselves.
Tasha is an accountant on the Brains tribe, Alexis is on the beauty tribe and Lindsey is hairstylist on the Brawn tribe.
Clearly we are missing some key piece of information about Lindsey because I don't really see how being a hairstylist is that brawny. Trish is a pilates instructor and I'm guessing she is also on the Brawn tribe.
