Rupert Gets His Star
Indianapolis can be proud of it's native son, Rupert Boneham. Not only is he the star of S7 but he has been plucked from his home to participate in Mark Burnett's "Survivor All Star".

We had hinted in our October 31st article that perhaps the venue for the "Survivor: Pearl Islands" Finale being filmed live from Panama City might enable Mark Burnett and CBS to include an S7 castaway. Well it looks like we might have guessed right. Rupert is missing from his hometown.
The All Star game should be starting today, and SNN has learned that Rupert is among the castaways vying for the million dollar prize.
Our estimated end date of December 11 (give or take) is only a few days before the live televised finale of Survivor: Pearl Islands in Panama City on December 14. That would enable Rupert to finish up the S8 game and still participate in the S7 televised finale.
We aren't surprised that Rupert would be part of the All Star. After all, he has been leading the SNN polls as the most likeable and entertaining castaways of S7 since before the show even began to air. Mr. Boneham embraced the pirate theme and brought a breath of fresh air to what had become predictable, Big Brother-esque casting choices that plagued post-S1 series.
As Dan Rather once said, we would rather be last than to be wrong. In the coming days and weeks we may report on additional castaways participating in Survivor: All Star as the investigation continues. And to counter doubters on the quality of our superb investigative reporting, we are making a challenge. If we report a castaway as being on All Star, but said castaway emails us between November 3rd and December 11 a high resolution photograph of themselves holding the current front page of a major newspaper, we will offer a $100 donation to a charity of their choice. (with enough deductions, we won't pay taxes this year!)
My note: This suggests nothing of his actual place on S7 by the way. All Star is not just compromised of people who made the Final 4.
Yeah I know it's not just people who made the final four! Yay for Rupert! Yay! I'm glad it's not just seasons 1-4 people! Woo hoo!
Good for Rupert! Another season of him should be fun...what do you guys think?
I personally have no qualms with this unless it becomes The Rupert Show again, but I doubt they will let it because there's more interesting people on S8.

But I do admit that Rupert's skills are top of the line when it comes to surviving!
It's interesting that at the bottom of the above article it says, "All Star Countdown: 1 down.... 17 to go...".
Three tribes to start?
Sexy evil genius
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

More realistically it's 9 people with 2 tribes.
Well, you know more than me for sure, TheFlying.

I don't know, though, three tribes would be difficult logistically--does only the bottom 1 go to TC? Otherwise people would be dropping like flies . . .
Maybe only the last place team goes to TC?
