    Jeff Speaks On Vanuatu

    Jeff said somebody is gonna get burned. This could mean game wise, but somehow I dont think so. *flashback to Mike Skupin* This is the Islands of Fire. What do you think?

    Here is what the article (portion said)

    "Somebody's gonna get burned," Jeff Probst says during a filming at Tribal Council for S9's "Islands of Fire" theme.

    I'm reminded of The Assistant, when Andy Dick spoofed Tribal Council, and accidentally set the whole council area on fire when he was snuffing torches

    I am guessing he means figuratively, with the whole "fire is life" speech Jeff has given every season of Survivor. I doubt they would make an off-hand comment like this if someone was actually seriously burned during filming, as they took the Supkin injury very seriously on the show (as well they should have).

    I dunno, it makes me think something actually does happen injury-wise and maybe they are playing it up because the first burn injury got so much replay? Maybe people would tune in to see who might get injured and take them out?

    It just seems way too cheesy to use it figuratively with that tone of voice.

    Maybe someone's rope will get burned that is holding them up and they will be out of the competition? I dunno. Must stop preanalyzing. It's a sickness.

    Nah, I'm with LG. It's just a completely lame figure of speech that ties in with the location. Maybe they're hopeful that people will automatically draw the connection to the Michael Skupin incident. That episode remains the most watched non-premiere/non-finale show, if I'm not mistaken. But anyway, the way Jeff says it on the commercial is just too dorky to mean that somebody actually gets burned.
    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

    Sort of adds a whole new dimension to being the first one voted out, doesn't it?

    I think it's cheesy but fun and fits into the theme. I think the theme will be successful, as both Amazon and Pearl Islands centered around a pretty good concept and drove some of the events of the game.

    Maybe those voted off are cremated to avoid spoilers.
