I'd like to see Russ return. That's the guy who fainted while pushing the big ball-cage. Wasn't he on the same season as Russel Hantz's first season? I also like Mike from the OUtback.

The downside of being better than everyone else is that people tend to assume you're pretentious.

List of players who were taken out due to medical reasons:
Likely to return
Colton Cumbie - The Producers know he was a polarizing player, and will bring him back for that reason alone.
Russell Swan - Possibly the scariest removal in Survivor history. I think we will be seeing Russell again.
Kourtney Moon - Broke her wrist because she couldn't follow a simple game direction, but never had a chance, we may see her next season.
Michael Skupin - Would love to see him back in the game, but it has been a long time, probably won't be one of the returnees.

Possible, but doubtful
Jonathon Penner - Played twice, so unlikely he will be returning
James Clement - Played twice, unlikely he will be returning. Besides, he was voted out with two immunity idols in his pocket the first time he played.

Slim chances
Gary Stritesky - Even after reading about him he doesn't ring a bell, doubtful he will return.
Bruce Kanegai - Vaguely remember him, but doubtful he returns.

No chance.

Mike Borassi - Vaguely remember him, Russel Swan was a more memorable player from that season, doubtful he will return
Joe Dowdle - Like Gary, not memorable, doubtful he will return
Bruce Kanegai - Vaguely remember him, but doubtful he returns.

Never once did I say that I thought his comments where exciting or entertaining. Actually, never once did I say that his comments were the reason why I think his leaving made the game boring. So, please do not assume I think this way. I think it is sad someone jumped to that conclusion.

I didn't think I needed to say that I couldn't stand Colton, but I guess I do.

IMO, this season was boring. Colton, whether you liked him or not, was the only one the provided some sort of entertainment/controversy. He and Troyzan were the only ones to provide any kind of potential of resisting Kim and her boring minions taking over the game.

I watch Survivor for the game play and strategy, not sunshine and roses. There was hardly any strategy or game play. That equals boring to me.

Once again Colton didn';t make the game exciting at all. I found the game much much much more exciting after he left.

There at least two listed there that are African American, James Clement and Russell Swan.


Didn't Rupert also do back to back seasons?

I'd love to see Michael back, too, but that was one of the early seasons - he might be too old to handle it now. I liked Russell Swan, too - I thought he stood a decent chance to win his season before he got ill.

To be honest, I had a really rough time watching this season. I've watched every episode from Season 1 on, but I couldn't stand to watch Colton. Lying and backstabbing and making alliances with everybody and their mother - that's how you play Survivor. The way Colton (and Alicia) treated Christina, and all of the other things Colton said and did are NOT acceptable. I only tuned in each week to hope and pray they'd finally vote Colton out; no rushing home to catch the full hour of Survivor, just to see the vote. Last night, in fact, I only tuned in at 10:00 to watch Jeff read the votes; then it was back to the Food Network.

Unfortunately, Colton was med-evaced(sp?) early enough that he possibly could have participated in Survivor Philippines. I hope not!

Thank you! I have forgotten a lot it seems.

Colton did not make the show exciting. He made it uncomfortable. It was boring from the beginning but while Colton was on the show it was not a comfortable experience watching it and hearing the insults that he vomited throughout. Once Colton left the show was boring but for me it started that way and ended that way. I shudder to think Colton would be rewarded because the Producers confused truly offensive shocking behavior with entertaining television commentary. I don't want to watch a show that validated Colton behavior in exchange for higher ratings.

If Colton was medivaced with acute appendicitis and need surgery I am not sure he could have recovered quickly enough to participate in the next Season?

Articles I have read have said that Colton did not have an acute appendicitis but rather a severe abdominal infection. He was treated with bed rest and antibiotics.

Colton's comments did not make the show exciting for me. The fact that Colton was one of only two people that could potentially go against Kim and her group and that being taken away is what made it boring. One less person to go against the group. That is all I am saying. I couldn't stand Colton.
