Survivor season 35 survivor pool
Quote | Reply
Just saw a promo. Season 35 starts on Wednesday.

Heroes, Healers and Hustlers is the theme.

For those of you new to the game.

You must select a survivor contestant before the episode airs. If your selection survives the episode, you are eligible to select again the next episode. Last slowtwitcher with picks remaining wins.

What do you win? Bragging rights and the respect/disdain of your fellow slowtwitchers

Welcome.

Two unwritten rules:

1). Wait 24 hours after the episode airs before posting spoilers. Not everyone watches live.

2). Normm wins every season, except one if memory serves

Do you have to change your selection each week or just pick one person to go the distance ?

What, no discussion yet? I'll start. We need to keep this thread at the top...

Pfew, I made it through week 1.

Interesting that Mamma 1 voted for Momma 2 and didn't use the advantage. Thought she might want her to stay around.

Mr. NFL is way too much drama (and crazy eyes!).

I do like the "Healers" team as they do work well together even though they didn't look like a physical threat.

"Hustlers" are just sad.

Discuss.

BTW where is NormM?

Yep, I thought they would have stuck together.

Oh well, I'm out already and out on the show. I only watched this year cause Momma 2 was a friend from HS days.

Leddy we hardly knew ya.

Interesting twist of a super immunity idol. Wonder if there will be another one later in the season when it can have an impact.

Little surprised they didn't blindside Allan. Guess strength in challenges trumps crazy in camp.

I think it would have been better that the super idol stays in play until used. Have it bounce around a few times and make it a real strategic threat. It wouldn't be too powerful since you only really get it once and then have to give it up again. (Not like Yul's idol when they first put it in)

I think that it's a bad draw that she got voted out first for the sole reason that she's an older woman. I don't know what she did in the Olympics but whatever it was she could have been better than someone else in the challenges? The "keep the tribe strong" trope needs to be retired, especially if it's three tribes and they'll shuffle soon anyway.


Then again, they didn't show her doing any alliance making either...

I'm here..... just taking it all in. At the start of these things I try to be all watching and listening and not let the hamster wheel of my own thoughts interfere with me getting a feel for the people and tribes and go with strictly social intuition. ( Which is pretty hard to do on the first episode because it's a blind pick other than maybe taking a look at the pictures of the tribes and the bios ) I thought it was smart to not use that super idol. ( to early in the game. Ashly would have been out and she would have been left there to try to be on a majority alliance only being able to count on Katrina ) Chrissy would still have a target on her back and give something for the others to unify against the next time they went to tribal because she thwarted them. Plus if she is smart ( and they didn't take it away from her ) she has a helluva fake immunity idol on her hands.

You always have insight that I just can't see. All great points.

Have you ever applied to be on the show?

No... never really wanted to do it. Don't do good with sleep deprivation and starving and trying to be social. Plus having my own buisness I could not walk a way for for that period of time. I have an inkling of how truely difficult it is and no fire in the belly or compelling reason to do so. Fun to watch, fun to guess about.... If I were going to try for a reality show.... it would be Amazing Race.
