I think this season had potential to be a good season but about half way through they all decided that Kim should win and started to play for second and third. While I didn't like watching the bullying and could not understand how any of them could sit around watching/listening to the way Christina was being treated and not say something at least it was something viewers could react to. Watching karma strike Colton down was awesome ...I was like "Maybe God does watch Survivor after all?" lol but really he deserved everything he got and if you took that part of the show away it would have been SO much more boring!!
I don't think that the show has to have twists to keep it interesting ...if the people are interesting. This cast was a bunch of duds and watching boring people do predictable things doesn't make for great TV. What Jeff said about the true fans of the show making big moves and not being content just coasting into a jury spot is so true and makes me wonder why they don't just try a season of all hard core fans ...or :p even just throw a couple people that have watched the show before in there for a change?? Watching dumb pretty people play follow the leader is getting kinda old. Not everyone liked Cochran but he made the show so much more exciting in that he played with his heart and went full tilt until the second he was voted out, he could see that he was on the outs and did something about it, not just kiss some butt and hope for one more week.
I want to see a season where everyone plays for themselves, makes big moves against big players and aren't afraid to really put themselves out there in the game.
