    Allowing Colton back would only reward him and I'll have none of that! And we have never been able to count on the others to do the right thing with returning contestants. And so long as Colton's smug face is there he's likely to monopolize the confessionals and that could ruin the season as well.

    Re: Would you want to see Colton in a future Survivor?

    I wish you hadn't posted a Big Brother spoiler. I try to avoid spoilers and I hadn't seen Sunday's episode of Big Brother yet. I never expected to see that here, in a thread about Survivor.

    And I wouldn't want to see Colton on my tv again in any reality show, talk show, informercial, whatever. I don't agree that they have to have him back for Heroes vs. Villains. Unlike previous villains who you might argue people love to hate, Colton wasn't just playing a villain on tv. I believe he really is a racist bully in real life. People like him don't deserve a starring role on a tv show to spew their hatred. I'd be happy if I never heard from Colton again, and very disappointed in Survivor/CBS if they did ask Colton to return for a future edition of Survivor. I guarantee I will not be watching that season if he's included.

    @Brooks, I take your point that his behavior is not to be rewarded. His presence would only be on a "Villain"-type season. I can guarantee this in writing if necessary.

    @Pika Sorry about the spoiler. I'd heard about it in the news prior to seeing the episode myself, so I assumed it was widely known.

    Look, we all agree Colton is odious for his racist opinions and vindictive character assassination. But while he was in the show, no one called him on it. Even in the Reunion show, everyone was making nice and it really wasn't resolved. (His mother defending him, by putting words in his mouth, was particularly pathetic.) I'd just like to see him as a villain among villains, and see how quickly he gets shut down, should he continue his malformed behavioral patterns. I mean, there are plenty of odious characters that've been rewarded with return tickets: Jerri, Fairplay, Tyson, Russell, Hatch.

    Yikes...just realized that because Colton was medevaced out of Survivor he could have been invited back this year! Well, maybe they were only going with the fondly remembered injured.

    That's a Big Phat YES!!! As long as the two tribes banded together and burned him at the stake in the first episode. Otherwise, Hell to the No!

    Colton can return as long as he signs a contract stating that he will immediately fall into the fire. Pull a Skupin or stay off my TV!

    Yes. Colton can return. But only if he trips and breaks his leg trying to step off the boat or whatever at the start of episode 1, causing the earliest evacuation ever.

    Re: Would you want to see Colton in a future Survivor?

    I didn't vote because A) I don't care (Colton just didn't inspire anything in me except indifference) and B) He would have been a completely different player with a completely different attitude. Returnees always try to repair any damaged images...hellloooo, Coach, I'm talking to you. Some with more success than others. And then, there's Russell (Evil Troll Russell, not Bossy Dreadlocks Russell). But he's in a class by himself - mind you, for me, it's the Evil Misogynistic Troll class.
