    I thought that an applicant submitted a list of items he/she wanted to bring as a luxury item, and then the producers let the applicant know which one(s) is/are acceptable. If more than one are, then the applicant can choose which one he/she wants to bring...

    Or do the producers decide which is the one item an applicant can bring?

    Yes, the producers do decide. And, Sher, I think you're starting to feed the fire for Wayner's Brilliant Robb Theory. I just love the thought of this well-thought-out list of survival gear and a "what the hell?" add-on of a skateboard.

    My three luxury items? Hm, I'd agree that staring wistfully at my family all day every day would undermine the job I had to do out there, so I'd probably go with a journal (for once in my life, I'd have plenty of time to write), a deck of cards (I love playing card games, and it's a great way to bond with your fellow Survivors), or, uh, I don't know. A porno mag? Make friends with the fellas on the tribe and hope not to alienate too many of the ladies. 'Course, putting "porno mag" on the list probably guarantees you'll get one of the other two items. That might be a good strategy.

    Paulie - no, I'm afraid no one has ever accused me of being too modest (yet)
    Excellent, Modesty. That's what I like to hear.
    When you're ten years old and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again. - Jack Handey

    Day 30, starved to death, can't move, stressed out, which would you rather have? A pic of your smiling 2 year old or a frisbee
    Hmm, jodaar (sorry I misspelled your name before), you might have a point there. One keeps forgetting that they aren't exactly on vacation with their buddies - on the contrary, everyone is your enemy, so it might be nice to see a friendly face once in a while.

    ...a picture of your smiling 2 year old printed onto a frisbee, then you can have both.


    I think the most helpful luxury item is the journal.
    Absolutely, John!

    ...and it was up to each Survivor to get to know Jenna well enough to see her picture of her kids and know their names. Kelly kicked ass at that challenge, and Vee took a lesson from Kelly and wrote down everything she learned about her fellow survivors in her journal, a good idea.
    Hadn't thought about this before, but it really seems like no-one is close to anyone else. We never get to see 2 people actually sitting talking. The SJ:s seem to not talk at all with each other, and the CG:s have only talked about the G-T "incident" since.
    No wonder really, can't think of anyone I'd like to get to know in this bunch... better stay far away (which ultimately will get you voted off, like Steph).
    My guess: they'll all lose the "fallen comrades" challenge and JP takes all the money himself!

    I'm new here as well - just joined last week - and I think you'll find that the folks here are very friendly!
    Hi Wayner, yes very friendly, that's why I joined!

    As for the luxury items, as I recall on the application (yes, I was nutty enough to apply for S3) they asked applicants to list 3 potential luxury items.
    You didn't!?! Not sure if I should say "I'm sorry you didn't make it" or "I'm happy you didn't make it"! So, 3 items then. (What did you chose?)

    wouldn't it be funny if all of the items on robb's list were really logical, like vitamins, razor, shampoo, soap, etc and he couldn't think of a 10th, so jokingly he put "10. skateboard."? i can see the producers now... "let's make this guy look like an ever BIGGER idiot!" APPROVED: skateboard!
    I wouldn't be surprised!

    I bet that's very close to what happened.


    Wayner, tell us what you listed as your luxury items when you applied to S3.


    My 3 luxury items would probably be: the Journal (of course) , shampoo, and a football or a frisbee.

    Wayner, tell us what you listed as your luxury items when you applied to S3.
    It's been awhile and I didn't keep a copy of my application (or my video, which I regret), but I believe my items were:

    1. Journal
    2. Bible
    3. Steel wool (3 guesses who's idea that was)

    I never reapplied - my son was born after S3 was taped, and I wouldn't want to miss a month of him growing up, even for a million dollars. Well, maybe when he's 3 or 4; but to risk missing him take his first steps and such - no way! I can't believe these folks that leave while they're wives/girlfriends are about to give birth or recently did (Gervese and Ted come to mind)

    Actually, I remember saying on my audition tape that one of the reasons I thought I'd make a good Survivor was that while they were filming S3 in it's secret location, my wife would be going through the 7th month of her first pregancy in the heat of the summer, and anything that Survivor could subject me to would pale in comparison to what I'd be going through in my own home.

    Funny, my wife wasn't amused.

    3 items: journal, deck of cards (thanks for the tip, Paulie), soap (can be used for the hair too).

    I was reading Wayner's post and could NOT figure out why 1-Ducky was replying the Survivor thread and 2- had so much to say about it! Shows you I usuaully identify people with the av, not necessarily the name! I just assumed seeing a hockey guy that Ducky was the poster

    Welcome Wayner, glad to have you here.

    I think my luxury items would be cards, hair brush and candles.. if that's allowed.
    If you go through a lot of hammers each month, I don't think it necessarily means you're a hard worker.
    It may just mean that you have a lot to learn about proper hammer maintenance.
