With the exception of Rob C (who is one of my favourite ever players), I don't know if I'd be able to come up with a worse cast if I tried. Aras and Tina I don't agree with, because they are winners and probably will be first out anyway. Can't say anything about Colton that hasn't already been said. Stephanie Valencia (had to look that one up) was pretty much a Russell groupie in RI, one of those people that ignores the fact that their alliance doesn't have the numbers to do anything. Terry was pretty arrogant, not much strategy but good at challenges. Kat was just kind of dumb and needs smart people to latch onto to get anywhere. RC I'd actually be somewhat interested in seeing, since she kind of got screwed over by Abi and didn't get much chance to play. Gervase would be OK, but I feel like the game has changed so much since he played. Natalie was lucky in that she was able to tack onto a female alliance, she didn't seem to have much strategy herself, and she enjoyed giving tons of confessionals about how evil and badass the female alliance was in taking out the guys and she got very annoying.
The idea of more returnees doesn't excite me at all. It's time for a season with new people. I actually didn't mind Philippines, since the returnees didn't take up all the camera time and didn't get a free ride to the end (like Boston Rob and Coach). The idea of adding family members also isn't very good. I might watch the first episode but I doubt the season will be a good one.
