I love Survivor but strategy is not in my DNA, nor is competition. So I have some questions about this season:
Do we know how long people stay on Redemp Island?
Until the next one arrives and they have a duel?
When do they re-join the other tribe(s)?
Or is it a Gladiator type challenge of survival of the fittest, meaning one person continues to defeat all others?
I'm tired of Rob and Russell but I can understand why they're back: Ratings.
Rob is so charasmatic that people are actually groveling in front of him. He's pretty, he's funny, he's excellent at strategy and everyone likes him.
Russell is a nasty little man. He's evil, has no values and will stop at nothing to get what he wants and no one likes him.
We might as well put the white hero hat on Rob and the black villian hat on Russell. It's that cliche.
I don't mind because I, too, an under the Rob-Spell. :lovestruc
dragonlady, Matt will duel Francesa and likely win. Francesa will go home and he will meet the next boot and duel with them. The loser will go home and winner stays to greet the next and on it goes. I assume the duels are physical but we don't know this for sure. They have only given the indication that it is a physiclal contest.
We don't know when the remaining player will rejoin the game but my guess is at the merge. It doesn't make sense to do it before this turning point in the game.
If this is a physical joust we can pretty much guess the outcome. I don't see how any of the women could win against any male they encounter. It would be interesting to watch Russell and Philip go against each other.
There have been far more intelligent better players on Survivor than these two jerks. I know I've had enough of them. At one time I thought Russell was kinda funny but he is getting very old in a hurry. Rob has always been a drag. :zzzQuote:

I'm wondering if Phillip has had some kind of brain damage... I swear he comes across as someone who's been zapped in the frontal lobes... He has no ability to filter his thoughts or restrain himself. I can't see how he could have worked for 3 agencies in his current state or even one. He would never make it past the first interview.
Of course, I have no idea if this applies to Phillip. But what I described could explain how that could happen.
It's not just in government jobs, either. I woeked in the production department of a really big newspaper until I got laid off, and you would never believe what it would take for a worker to even be summoned to the office, never mind be suspended for a day or fired. Management had rather ignore personnel problems than go through what it took to actually reprimand anyone in 95 percent of the time, even it involved things that would get you fired on the spot anywhere else.
(and this is from a non-practicing Catholic who can't bring herself to even consider returning to the church for that very reason.)
