I’ve started Samoa, probably seems an odd choice but I’m just filling gaps from my weird watching order from four years ago

It’s okay atm, nothing stellar but not too bad. I’m aware of just how much airtime Russell sucks up in this season and it’s evident already. Half of the cast feel like they’ve been shown for less than five minutes and I’m onto the sixth episode

Shambo is my early favourite, i don’t have much of an opinion on anyone else but Yasmin seemed like she could’ve been a legend

Samoa is a really weird season and itís a shame Russell sucks up so much airtime because the potential is there for it to be a decent season. Shambo is fantastic though and Iím glad youíre enjoying her

I don't find Scout boring at all actually! She's sooooooo slimy and fake and calculated but I'm enamored at how someone who literally has noting to contribute managed to ascend to the power position at Yasur, mainly through metaphors that were really just insults directed at the younger women It's ironic love because she's so blatantly an awful person, but it also ~completes the image~ when you learn that her real name is actually Janet Spencer and she's a huge ****ing fraud

Samoa is such a slog to get through I don’t actually think I’d dislike Russell nowhere near as much if he wasn’t so overly edited. Erik has just gone (RIP to the king </3) and there’s currently now only Shambo I actually properly care about left in the tribe.

It is a slog but I think Shambo’s antics is enough to keep the season slightly above red-tier Other than that it’s pretty slim pickings as far as good moments go because the season is so Russell-focused. Still worth finishing for completion purposes though

Started my watch again this week and picked up with Palau. Overall, a pretty boring season but not as bad as some of the others. Ulong’s story arc was enthralling to watch but other than that I found the cast pretty uninspiring (a lot of the good people pre-merge went before they reached potential ) and a lot of the episodes boring to watch. I am excited to watch Guatemala next to continue BJ and Steph’s journeys though

Rankings:

1. Bobby Jon
2. Katie
3. Coby
4. Janu
5. Stephenie
6. Kim

Binged Guatemala straight after and I much preferred it to Palau. Bobby Jon and Steph both have more interesting story arcs (as much as I did slowly start to go off Steph as the series went on) and there’s a lot more drama to get sunk into. Both pre-merge and post-merge have some really good episodes but Bobby Jon v Jamie was the stand out storyline.

Rankings:

1. Jamie
2. Bobby Jon
3. Lydia
4. Danni

Finished Panama. Overall, an amazing season and pushes itself into my top five alongside SJDS, Gabon, Amazon and Cagayan. Casaya are my fave tribe of all time and my top five all making final six made the series so good. LOATHED Terry Deitz so him making F3 puts a *tiny* sour edge on it but it was good to have a hate figure too. Every episode was great but the finale dragged a little being an hour and a half with just three contestants after the first five mins.

Rankings:

1. Cirie
2. Shane

Hey sorry to interrupt, but I just finished my own watch of survivor from season 1-40. It took about 5 years or so but I'm glad I did because any season that had returning players I could understand what they're about.
Best of luck Daniel, it's a great series but it's a commitment!
Edit: maybe more than 5 years I actually lost count
Edit X2: from watching it from start to finish I can confidently say it's greatest reality tv show I ever watched to be able to see the beginning and how it gradually became the game it is today. It beats every game that has ever been made. The best. Anyway sorry, I'll follow this thread and will be interested how you feel about each season Dan

I too have been struggling through this watch for around nearly six years now (how time flies) I did have a break from December 2016 to last summer though and then another break from last August to now. I love it but I think I can only binge so many at a time before it becomes too repetitive.

I made the mistake of not watching in order when I first watched. So Iíve currently seen 23/40 seasons but not in order I update my series faves and rankings in the OP.

The thread title still says currently watching Vanuatu too from 2016 when I first tried to watch it and gave up

Aw man I'm the exact same as you, I quit for a few years or so or whatever, I can't even remember haha I just know I quit for a bit. Like it's you said it got very repetitive especially some of those earlier seasons but honestly it gets waaaay better later. To the point of where I didn't watch anything else for a while. I went though season after season for a while.
Oh **** okay I'm way off then for your current watch then haha I'll still keep watch tho and will but in when I can lol

Finished China! A really good season, not as good as Panama but still very good. Some of the episodes are thrilling like James’ elimination and Jaime’s fake idol play but others are bit too predictable for me. The cast didn’t quite hit it for me like Panama too but the storyline carried it well. The final tribal council was great too, idk why but I just really enjoyed all of it Courtney’s quick answers to people like Jean-Robert, Amanda stuttering over her words and giving ‘doe-eyes’ as Peih-Gee put it and Jaime’s on the spot questioning.

Rankings:

1. Peih-Gee
2. Courtney
3. Sherea
4. Amanda
5. Erik
6. Todd
7. Jaime
8. Ashley
9. Chicken

10. Frosti

Finished Cook Islands. Rushed through it as soon as possible to get it over with. Deffo contender for my least fave along with One World. This was more boring but the cast were more vile in OW so it’s a toss up. The edit focused way too heavily on few people (Jonathan to name mainly) and the Aitu Four alliance were deathly boring. Even people like Parvati and Candice who are in my top three hardly set the series alight but at least they redeemed themselves in future appearances. Yul being considered one of the best players ever too… don’t make me larf. Was given an insane amount of power that he dangled in everyone’s faces. Fook off robot.

Rankings:

1. Cao Boi
2. Parvati
3. Candice

So I gave up on watching in order because where’s the fun in it?! So I’ve just finished Nicaragua tonight. Overall, a decent season but not one of my favourites. There is plenty of drama that keeps the season going from the pre-merge to post-merge and some episodes like the double quit and Jane’s boot are legendary but idk the cast was just lacking a little for me and the editing was too all over the place. It definitely gets too much hate from the casual fans though and is a lot more fun compared to some of the strategy-bore seasons like Cook Islands.

Rankings:

1. Jane
2. Brenda
3. Fabio
4. Holly
5. Jimmy T
6. Chase
7. Tyrone
8. Wendy

Just finished Fiji tonight. Overall, I think it’s overly hated by the fans - not one of the best by a long shout but perfectly fine and just about average for me. The pre-merge is better than post-merge and the have/have-not twist is really unfair in hindsight but it still maintains itself. The cast isn’t enthralling to watch but the core alliance are all very likeable and it’s better than watching say Palau or Cook Islands where the crappy people make it towards the end. Stand out moments mainly where the Edgardo boot ep and the final with Dreamz’ dilemma.

Rankings:

1. Cassandra
2. Dreamz
3. Stacy
4. Yau-Man

Rewatching S40 before S41 airs because it was so good and the best one since Heroes vs Villains.

Watched Philippines this week and it was actually pretty good but for one reason only: Abi Maz . I think a lot of the best people went early on and left us with quite a few bores swarming round in the merge, luckily Abi had an amazing run of eps towards the end and cemented it as a decent season overall. The core alliance who stormed were so boring.

Rankings:
1. Abi-Maria
2. Russell
3. Angie
4. RC
5. Pete
6. Penner
7. Lisa
8. Roxy
9. Dawson
10. Katie

11. Dana
12. Malcolm
13. Zane
14. Artis
15. Carter

16. Denise
17. Jeff


Side note: everyone I liked goes in green now cos I felt the lines were getting a bit blurred of where to put people. Abi Maria carried this on her back though.

Finished SoPa. It had its peaks and troughs and overall it was a just about average season of Survivor I’d say. I actually think it could’ve been a very good season if the focus wasn’t so centred Cochran all the time. For example, Sophie’s winner arc in the final episode that sees her realising she comes across of as a brat would’ve made way more sense if we actually saw any of it. I didn’t loathe Cochran but the way he was the focal point of EVERY SINGLE EPISODE till he finally went at F7 grated so much. Brandon was the stand out and fascinating to watch but there was a lot of cute hag girlies too

Rankings:

1. Brandon
2. Stacey
3. Edna
4. Dawn
5. Christine
6. Semhar
7. Sophie

8. Albert
9. Coach
10. Elyse
11. Cochran
12. Mikayla
13. Papa Bear
14. Rick
15. Whitney
16. Ozzy

17. Keith
18. Jim
