Survivor Nicaragua Back on CBS

I was so glad to have Survivor back last night. Although, I must admit that it was a bit of a disappointing show for me. I think that a 1 hour premiere isn’t enough for me. I prefer the 2 hour Survivor premiere. You get more of a chance to know the various players.

It is an interesting dynamic having Jimmy Johnson on the show. I’m not sure I like it that much. Mostly because even on the first show he’s already ready to bow out of the competition. That’s just lame. If you’re going on Survivor, then I want you to be all in and trying to win. None of this, It’s Too Hard crap!

Sadly, I also don’t see and Russell’s on this season. Granted, he’s a hard one to replace. However, I’ll definitely be missing him this season. Although, the show is still fascinating and will definitely be a great watch. I like the move to Wednesday nights too, but I’d rather have it a little later. Oh well, it should be another good season of Survivor.

Survivor – The Dragons Music Video

This is one freakin hilarious video. You have to be a Survivor fan, and you also have to have enjoyed the Survivor Ponderosa videos to really understand this video. However, those of you who have seen it will laugh hard. I love it and the blonde chick (I already forgot her name) was pretty good in this video.

Preview Videos of Survivor 20: Heroes vs Villains

I’m so excited for Survivor 20: Heroes vs Villains. They brought back so many incredible personalities that this should be absolutely incredible to watch. I’m not sure I have any favorites or people that I want to win. I just want to watch the drama unfold. It should be incredible!!

In case you missed the Survivor 20 Cast announcement, watch this great video where Jeff Probst talks about each of the cast members. He reminds you about each person and gives you insight into why they’re on the show and what we might expect from them.

Grey’s Anatomy and Survivor…I Love Thursdays

I can’t tell you how muzh I love Thursdays. Survivor has been off the charts this season. Russell is arrogant, but is great television. I think he’s going to get it handed to him tonight. You had to know that his arrogance was going to catch up with him sooner or later. I am just really happy that he’ll at least be on the jury. Can you imagine?

Grey’s Anatomy should be great as well. Izzie is back and that’s good since I just hated having her storyline just sitting there. We need some resolution to that story. Whatever resolution that may be. I also only ask the writers one thing: Do not touch little grey. She’s my favorite and must stay on the show.
Private practice is on tonight also, but I’m behind on those shows and so I’m not sure I’ll ever get back to it. Is it even worth it? That show has just been a little weird for me lately.

Returned Mormon Missionary on Survivor Tocantins

The new season of Survivor premieres tonight at 8 PM ET/PT on CBS. I’ve previously posted the full Survivor Tocantins cast and a few comments about Survivor Tocantins model Sierra Reed.

Today I came across an interesting article talking about former pro-cyclist and current bike shop manager Tyson Apostol from Heber City, Utah. The article talks about Tyson being a returned mormon missionary on Survivor. It even talks about how Tyson thinks his mission to the Philippines will give him an advantage on tonight’s survivor.

I’m sure his time in the Philippines will help, but anyone who has watched Survivor knows that it’s not always the smartest player that wins. There’s a whole lot of luck involved. It’s also been shown that he who is arrogant goes home also. So, Tyson Apostol should keep quiet and pray hard if he hopes to win this season of Survivor.

I’m really looking forward to tonight’s Survivor season premiere.

Sierra Reed Survivor Tocantins Model

Suh-Tahn - MBFW Fall 2008 - After Party

I was checking out a BuddyTV slideshow of the contestants on Survivor Tocantins and one of them stood out. It was model Sierra Reed. Sure, any model on a reality tv show would stand out to me (see my Biggest Loser Models post and Erica Ellyson on Momma’s Boys).  However, the fact that Sierra Reed was a model wasn’t what shocked me.  What shocked me was the description and quotes that BuddyTV posted about Sierra Reed.  Take a look:

The 23-year-old is a model from Los Angeles, California. She didn’t have to try out for Survivor, claiming that producers approached her with an offer. She also claims to not need the million-dollar prize. “Money comes and goes,” she said. “If I’d saved when I was just starting out, I’d be a multimillionaire by now.”

Wow!!  Sierra Reed must be a complete nut job.  Everyone can enjoy a cool million dollar prize.  It’s nice that she has confidence in herself, but modeling is only going to last her so long.  She might want to start saving some of that money.  This is good news for the show.  I love whack jobs who truely believe the craziest things.  Sierra Reed should provide a really good storyline for fans of Survivor.

Survivor Tocantins Cast Announced – A Millionaire, A Former Singer and A 19 Year Old

The 18th season of Survivor marks a few changes. This is the first season which allowed those under 21 years old to apply for a slot on the show. All of them will have to stay for 39 days in Tocantins, a state located in central Brazil marked by tropical temperatures, terrible downpours and the Rio Novo river. So who exactly are they?

Benjamin Wade, 37, is a soccer coach and part-time orchestra conductor from Bolivar, Montana. He’s no stranger to the wilderness, having kayaked all 6,132 miles from Baja, California to Colombia by himself. “I’m in this game because I want to change it,” he said. “It’s become survival of the weakest. I want the strongest to survive.”

Brendan Synnott, 30, is an entrepreneur from New York City. He sees his experience with Bear Naked Granola—which he sold to Kellogg’s for $122 million—as a good character-building experience. “I think it’s healthy to have everything taken from you and then have to rebuild,” he said.

Candace Smith, 31, is a former lawyer—and current actress and events planner—from Los Angeles, California. She says she’d be willing to eat anything to win the show. “Having to eat something [weird] for a chance to win a million dollars is nothing to me,” she said. “I grew up eating chitlins.”

Carolina Eastwood, 26, is a bartender from Los Angeles, California. The half-Panamanian prepared for the show in the most offbeat of ways: have her body hair removed. “I got lasered from head to toe because I’m ethnic in the hairiest sense of the word,” she said. “And I did not want to scare people with my overgrown armpits.”

Debra Beebe, 46, is a middle school principal from Auburn, Alabama. The self-described adventure seeker still cringes at what the competition could offer. “Digging a hole and going Big Bathroom in the middle of nowhere … having to wipe with your hands … Is my body going to shut down because I can’t do it?” she said.

Erinn Lobdell, 26, is a hairstylist from Waukesha, Wisconsin. She believes that her gift to get a stranger to trust her in five minutes will help her a lot on the show. “I work at a nice salon, so if this works out for me, I’ll be the new owner when I get home,” she quipped.

James Thomas Jr., 24, is a cattle rancher from Samson, Alabama. The self-described country boy believes his experience in the field will help him and his tribe throughout. “Deer, turkey, wild hog, coyote—everything you’re allowed to hunt in Alabama, I’ve hunted,” he said.

Jerry Sims, 49, is a US Army sergeant from Rock Hill, South Carolina. He plans to take and do things differently on Survivor, as opposed to the way he leads his company of a hundred Army reserves. “I don’t want to be the boss,” he said. “The leader gets axed too early.”

Joe Dowdle, 26, is a commercial real estate broker from Austin, Texas. His strategy is simple: to persuade people to side with him, or get away when things get tough. “If it works, I will have pulled off something miraculous,” he said. “If not, I’ll get pretty far anyway.”

Sandy Burgin, 53, is a bus driver from Louisville, Kentucky. The tattooed grandmother was one of the first to audition, and thinks she can endure all the conditions that Tocantins has to offer. “My willpower is phenomenal,” she claimed. “On a scale of one to 10, it’s a 12.”

Sierra Reed, 23, is a model from Los Angeles, California. She didn’t have to try out for Survivor, claiming that producers approached her with an offer. She also claims to not need the million-dollar prize. “Money comes and goes,” she said. “If I’d saved when I was just starting out, I’d be a multimillionaire by now.”

Spencer Duhm, 19, is a college sophomore from Lakeland, Florida. He’s been closely studying the game since he was 11, and is now the youngest Survivor contestant in history. His tip to win: “You have to assume they’re going to screw you before you screw them over.”

Stephen Fishbach, 29, is a corporate consultant from New York City. He goes by many names, but isn’t willing to be called by his nickname at home—“Fish”—while in the Brazilian rainforests. “I can’t [use it] here because when I can’t fish, I’m going to look like an idiot,” he said.

Sydney Wheeler, 24, is a model and interior designer from San Diego, California. She’s not afraid to use her looks and appeal to get the upper hand in the competition. “I plan to make alliances with the athletic guys,” she said. “If I’ve gotta flirt, I’m gonna flirt. Work with what you’ve got. Right?”

Taj Johnson-George, 37, was formerly part of Grammy-nominated singing group SWV, and is now based in Nashville, Tennessee. Despite being married to NFL star Eddie George, she is out to prove she isn’t pampered. “I’m a 5’9”, 190-pound tomboy,” she said. “I’m gon’ tear ‘em up when I get out there.”

Tyson Apostol, 29, is a bike shop manager from Lindon, Utah. The former professional cyclist thinks he’d win Survivor because he’d be good at it. “May as well go and win,” the 31-mph biker said. “And $1 million in two months isn’t a bad paycheck.” His strategy: push other people’s buttons.

Survivor: Tocantins premieres on February 12, from 8pm ET, on CBS.
