Default First Watch/Re-Watch Survivor Thread

I was going to start watching Survivor ages ago but I didn't and just watched Gabon but they do All stars a lot so I'm going to start watching all the seasons by the next Season, I think a lot of people on here are going to start watching too

I will probably start season 1 first then go on

I watched S1-25 all within the space of 3 months, and then S28 came around and I never got round to watching S26 or S27.

I started watching S27 a few weeks ago, I'm about 4 eps in and it's quite good tbh.

Gabon Cast Thoughts~

CRYSTAL is just magical. She just delivers non-stop. I find it hard to express my love for her in words so I'll just post my fave Crystal things below:

-"WHAT THE HELL?! I'M OUT THERE BUSTIN' MY BUTT AND THEY'RE GONNA RANK ME NUMBER 4?!
BEFORE RANDY?! AND ALL HE DOES IS FUSS AND CURSE AND SIT ON HIS ASS?! I WAS VERY INSULTED."
-"I WASN'T CRYING OVER THOSE DARN-GONE DANISHES. I WAS CRYING BECAUSE WE KEEP LOSING."
-*Fails at hitting fruit with a bat despite being like 18 ft tall*
-Being an unstoppable force pre-merge even though she's abrasive and rude (<3)
-Her alliance with Kenny (which is honestly the only reason I care about him at all lol)
-The legendary 'Eat yo' rice' exchange
-
"YOU HAVE MADE MY LIFE HELL SINCE DAY ONE. FORGET YOU, GO HOME, GOODBYE."

RANDY is also hilarious. Like seriously, how could a misanthropic grump who chooses to allign with a bunch of egotistical 20-somethings not be amazing? I also find him fascinating from a psychological standpoint: I think, as much as he enjoys being on his own, he also yearns for human interaction and hates being pitied. I think he is one of the most unique survivor contestants ever, and I enjoy him a lot. The only time I disliked Randy was when he accused Crystal and GC of running their tribe 'like a gang' which seemed kinda racially motivated and made me feel uncomfortable.

SUGAR is an enigma. I loved that she was an accidental mastermind, and was able to get to the final 3 without getting any vote. I loved that she would turn on her own allies for seemingly no reason (Pwnt @ Ace). Idk what else to say really, as Sugar's appeal is obvious and idt that I have to explain it to anyone. I'll finish on Sugar by saying she is definitely one of the mentally frailest people to ever go on Survivor, and I felt rlly bad when she tried to kill herself after being voted out of HvV .

KELLY is amazing.. Idk if I can explain my absurd amount of Kelly love. Proudly annoucning she works in retail <3 shutting down Jacquie's attempt to get on her good side <3 Being bffs with Paloma <3 The following exchange:
Jeff: Kelly, do you think Ace is an asset to your tribe?
Kelly: Well, he can be pretty condescending sometimes..

<3

DAN is such an adorable human. He's so charming and awkward I can't help but love him. His idol hunt was amazing, and it resulted in him dumping the contents of his bag in the middle of Tribal Council to prove he didn't have it <3. I don't actually remember much else about Dan, other than that he was booted for eating too much food or something? lol

GILLIAN is an annoying overly-positive old woman so naturally I loved her. I'm pretty sure the first thing she did was start picking up elephant dung? lol <3 also she randomly got Michelle booted even though she performed the best in the challenge? I'm not going to question the logic in that because it gave us an extra hour of Gillian annoying her tribe/performing dismally in challenges/collecting elephant dung so obviously it was the correct decision.

SUSIE was actually barely on the season and randomly came 2nd! GJ! I loved her when she was seen though. Her name being Jesusita <3 "WELL ACTUALLY I WAS GONNA VOTE YOU OUT " <3 flipping on Marcus <3 being despised by the onions <3

PALOMA was Ace's first victim so naturally she has a place in my heart. Seriously though, her disgust of Ace was truly something to behold:
-*Rushes up to Corinne*
"HI HAS ACE GOT AN ALLIANCE WITH YOU? BECAUSE HE ALREADY HAS WITH EVERYONE ELSE, SO"
-Jeff: Paloma, do you think you and Ace could be brother and sister in another life?
Paloma: Maybe.. in another world....in a thousand years from now.. when I'm DEAD.

BOB is definitely an okay winner I guess? I don't have any problems with him and I enjoyed that he was a relatively normal person in a cast of crazy people so he goes here I guess.

KENNY is someone I don't rlly care about on his own but loved as Crystal's loyal minion. How can I not like someone who campaigned for Crystal's survival? Still, I don't really care for him on his own.

JACQUIE and Kelly are not the same person.

GC is really stank but in a boring way. Still. he contributed to 'Eat Yo' Rice. so I can't bring myself to diskike him.

CHARLIE was kinda invisible? Like he went from declaring his love for Marcus to not really doing anything. He never did anything objectionable though.

MICHELLE was boring and I'm glad she went over Gillian despite it not making any logical sense to boot her <3

CORINNE is such a try-hard generic meangirl. I rlly don't want to spend time writing about her, so I guess I'll just say her question to sugar was unnecessary and made me feel dirty.

MARCUS is smug, condescending and boring. At least he had the decency to get taken out by Crystal though.

MATTY isn't even worth writing about. Such a shame he made it further than so many great contestants. Sugar randomly taking him out tho <3

ACE is rlly annoying. I get why so many people like him, but I can only root for so many OTT characters and he doesn't rlly do anything for me. His fake British accent x_x. "They were like a pack of sleak weasels and we were like legless chickens".. what does that even mean? I just find him seriously unbearable.

Sorry for any spelling/grammatical mistakes. English isn't my first language.

Watched Borneo

It started off ok.. I didn't enjoy it that much for the first two eps but I guess that was because it is over 10 years old but as time went on I got use to it, I was happy with B.B going as he was very very annoying. Pagong was my fav group out of the rest, I liked most of the tasks as they where a lot more simple as the ones now, It was sad that romana was robbed like just before the merge <\3

After the merge the gameplay started there with the messy Rich, Sue & Kelly alliance, one downfall to the series was Pagong getting voted off one after another since I liked most of them, I did think colleen would ride it to the end but she didn't sob

On the final I didn't mind Richard that much didn't hate him or like him, but lmao sue at her messy speech about how she would let kelly die if she saw her dying, does anybody know what happened to Gerg after since I didn't understand him and what happened to all of them I know B.B died and Richard was locked up for 51 months, I will give the series 7/10

My main favs: Romana, Colleen

I will start Australia sometime this week

Just finished a spontaneous Borneo rewatch (probably my 5th or 6th time watching it) and it's even better than I remembered. Truly a work of art and probably my favorite season of reality TV. Absolutely perfect.

I'm also plowing through an Australian Outback rewatch and it's been pretty enjoyable too! I used to hold it on a pedestal and it's definitely not as good as I thought it was, but it's still fantastic. Old Survivor is just so much better than the modern day seasons, although the one-two punch of Cagayan and San Juan del Sur was a delight.

I might rewatch Marquesas again, that's one of my all time faves, especially out of the older seasons.

Finishing up my spontaneous Australian Outback rewatch and even though I don't like it as much as I used to, it's still a good season. Pre-merge is great but things start to drag after the merge, and especially after Jerri's booted. The last few episodes are mostly filler and focus on ~survival~ but there are some iconic moments in there like the flood that make it worthwhile.

I can also say that I firmly dislike Colby and Tina though! They do go on to redeem themselves in Heroes vs. Villains and Blood vs. Water respectively, but they were kind of yucky in their original appearances, Colby especially. Colby's lionized for his relationship with Jerri even though he treated her much worse than she ever did, and once she was gone he had to redirect his moodiness at someone else and it was Keith for pretty much no reason at all. Tina wasn't much better, constantly preaching about how the Good People deserve to win and using her sketchy morals to unite everyone against a common enemy, but as gross as it is it's part of the reason why she deserved her win (think Maggie in BBUS6.) Colby really had no reason to follow Tina's skewed moral compass, other than that he's a temperamental brat and viewed Tina as his surrogate mother (this becomes very clear once Colby's mom visits and we see their Oedipean relationship.)

Also, it's pretty easy to think that Jerri's villainy is overstated when watching this season 14 years after the fact, but if you watch with your parents it really throws you back to 2001. According to my mom, Jerri's an annoying jerk who sexually harassed Colby by screaming about chocolate and saying that their trip to the Great Barrier Reef was a honeymoon without the sex, and she only voted for Tina to win because she's a woman scorned, even though Jerri clearly explained that Colby taking Tina to the end made it clear that she was the real mastermind, which is entirely true. Even a fact as trivia as Jerri living in Germany for 12 years is annoying, somehow.

lmfao just finished up the Africa pre-merge and Samburu is definitely one of the best tribes ever. The whole pre-merge is just fantastic if only for Lindsey Richter <33333

Just started Samoa and ugh Ben's argument with Yasmin is so uncomfortable. I'm so glad he was voted out before her after Jaison got tired of his ****. Ben truly was awful.
