Only 23 days till the new season starts . . . where are all the spoilers?????  Shouldn't we know who the first 3 voted out are already and have a pretty good idea of the F4  ;)  . . . what are we a bunch of slackers this season   (:;)   

 :jumpy: Starting to get that old familiar feeling, the excitement of a new game, deciding who's the saint and who's the devil incarnate . . . who's the favorite and who's most likely to die from their own stupidity  :yess: 

Time to start recruiting players for online Survivor games  :tup:

Hope you all have had a great summer . . . I've missed you all . . . well most of you anyway  :funny:

I saw on Blows someone said it is actually the first 2 episodes not so much one long show.... any one heard this yet?  IF this is true we will have 2 gone the first night.

... a small blurb in tv guide

Episode Detail: - Survivor: Gabon---Earth's Last Eden

The 17th season begins with 18 castaways marooned in Gabon, Africa, and divided into two tribes.

The first person is voted out at tribal council.

Jeff Probst is the host.

In the TVGuide magazine schedule, Survivor is TWO hours.  So I'm  guessing this will be a long drawn out Episode 1, with only one boot.   
Or, it will be 2 eps and two bootees.

Hope we find more info before the show from Blows &/or other spoiler sites!  I've been looking, but can't find much of anything.  They are trying to torture us I think!  (:;) :groan:

1. "RE: S17 EP1: "Want to See the Elephant Dung?""

The press release made it seem like they jammed the first two episodes together when they moved back the premiere date, since originally the premiere was supposed to be one hour:

CBS is moving the season premiere of SURVIVOR: GABON - EARTH'S LAST EDEN to Thursday, Sept. 25 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), marking the first-ever two-hour premiere for any edition of the long-running hit series.

The premiere of SURVIVOR: GABON - EARTH'S LAST EDEN was originally announced for Thursday, Sept. 18 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT).

And in this thread flystorms also said we'd get Eps 1 and 2 on the first night:

So there should be two boots. TV Guide may be using an outdated blurb.
