I don't even remember who Kim is
I am ready for it to start and also hoping for a better cast! Oh wait, Kim was the winner, right? How sad is that...

I'm excited! Unless one of the newbies really wows me, I'm rooting for Michael Skupin or Russel (can't remember his last name - Swan??) to win. I was really impressed with Russel during his season, so I hope he at least makes it to the final 3 this time.

That was one of the dumbest moves in Survivor history. Who says after 3 days they can't take it.

Russell needs to get rid of the arrogance or he won't last.

I was really surprised on who they voted out. He was different so I had hoped he would stick around awhile, would have loved getting to know him a little better.

I agree with the PP about Russell. Wow. For constantly saying he didn't want to be the leader, he sure tried to take control all the time. I was hoping they'd vote him out.

I hope Lisa stays, but I think she's so afraid of people finding out she was a child star that she's hanging back and not mingling with people so they feel she's kind of standoffish and not a team player.

Love seeing Michael back in the game, I would love for him to win.

Subscribing...

I'm so glad to see Russell and Mike back in the game--I never liked Jonathan.

I never really like Jonathan either. I liked Russell before, but this season not so much so far.

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

No surprise he was voted out. You tell everyone, this game is kicking my butt, vote me out, then go to tribal and talk about what a great player Russell is why simultaneously (sp) saying that your tribe should get rid of you, then you shouldn't be surprised to see your name on the pieces of paper. Dumbest strategy I have ever seen in Survivor, and that includes the young kid who gave his idle to the women's alliance at tribal prior to getting the boot.

Russell needs to practice what he preaches. Skupin is not permitted near any sharp objects, and Penner looks to be in trouble. Out of the returning players, Skupin will probably go the furthest.

If she is such a fan of the show, what is with her going in the water with her jeans on. The other two girls even questioned her. You know you are going to a hot island somewhere and she looked like she was going to the mall shopping. Her strategy of being quiet and staying to herself is a ticket to being sent home.

I did miss the first 15 minutes of the show, but wasn't anyone allowed to bring a swimming suit? I saw so many ladies with Victoria Secret bra's and panties, I was starting to wonder if they are a major sponsor for the show.

SUBSCRIBING. I LOVE SURVIVOR!


Just saw this on google.

http://www.people.com/people/article...631716,00.html

Lisa Whelchel Is Divorced

As she left her Texas home to compete on Survivor: Philippines, Lisa Whelchel was hiding a secret that only her close friends knew: Her 24-year marriage to Steve Cauble was ending.

"The divorce was final on March 1 and I went out to be on Survivor on March 10," Whelchel tells PEOPLE exclusively. "Going out to Survivor was helpful for me, to divert my attention and not just dwell on the loss."

"I just never thought it would happen to me," says Whelchel, who has worked in Christian ministry with Cauble since The Facts of Life ended in 1988. "It was painful to realize that it wasn't going to work out."

Whelchel, 49, and Cauble, 61, have three grown children. Despite the divorce, they remain close – even watching the premiere of the show together with their kids.

"We will always be friends," Whechel says.

"And we will always be family, too."

This makes me think that she did not last very long on Survivor. Otherwise she might be talking about how Survivor changed her, not just how it was a diversion for her.

I was shocked the entire focus was on how badly Zane ran & how poorly the two young girls did on puzzles (after protesting being on puzzle duty in the first place). IIRC, they were solidly in 2nd place after the first portion of the challenge. It was the 2nd leg (rowing & swimming) that dropped them to last. And even if they had a good puzzle solver, they'd have never made up that much ground after such a dreadful 2nd leg.

Russell is extremely annoying.

Zane is an idiot.

Lisa needs throw on a swimsuit or at least kill the jeans and keep on your shirt. Maybe her recent divorce made it hard for her to concentrate and realize she was not connecting with people.

Was there a reason Lisa went in the water with all her clothes on?
