From the start it has seemed that savaii is the weaker tribe. They don't have as many skillful players though they may be connected better.

For the first time ever I started to question why I watch one of the big three (Big Brother, Amazing Race and Survivor). Maybe, because of the excitement of Big Brother about to air got me wanting to get rid of Survivor.

Overall it was an average premiere, but I generally like the cast better than last season. I think Coach's tribe has some stronger and smarter people who will cut him loose when they see fit.

Honestly, from when I was watching, I really thought Cochran was the one going to RI and I was actually quite shocked to see Semhar go instead! None of them were actually my pre-game faves (I felt she didn't have the strategy to win and I felt he, like Stephen, would have too much of a strategic approach to win) but from the first episode until the end of it I was preferring Semhar to John to staying because I liked her enthusiasm (didn't realize it was too much :lol: ).

In the end, for Cochran to pull off that 8:1, especially since the target suddenly went from her to him, then finally back to her, enthralled me and confirmed that he has the ability to get the target off him and persuade the votes (in TC, Dawn called him out, but in the end voted for Semhar) to his favor. Now I hope he can overcome his doubts and get the ball rolling, I say he should form an alliance with strong people (Jim, Elyse, and Keith maybe).

NOT rooting for:
Albert (lack screentime), Whitney (found her boring), Brandon (not one that stands out to me as someone that can win or be a fave, but he's def. gonna be in the center of some issue), Rick (not feeling him), Stacey (can't tell if she's biting her tongue or letting her attitude out, so too early), Jim (didn't like the way he was so outspoken), Christine (Kristina v2.0, i rooted for Kristina, i didn't like that decision), Keith (lack screentime), Elyse (nothing against her, but i'm rooting for the others more), Coach (ugh).

Who I'm rooting for, in order from least to most rooting:
Sophie - Something about her that makes me want to see her go far. She could be an interesting and smart, inquisitive player.
Papa Bear - I honestly think he's the type of person that gets voted out pre-jury, last juror or doesn't get voted out at all. Considering his tribemates for now (Cochran and Dawn for challenges, Jim for attitude, Ozzy for obvious reasons), he might be able to go far without having to do much!
Edna - Pregame fave. She didn't get a lot of screentime, but I think she's a smart enough player to win.
Mikayla - I was surprised with her in the IC. I don't think she'll win, but I'm rooting for her for sheer competitiveness.
Cochran - As stated, he can play the game strategically, but he's lacking the physical aspect. I wouldn't be surprised if he throws Dawn under the bus. He could pull a Todd, though.
Dawn - Pregame fave. I was surprised how her breakdown didn't result in a vote, and that no one called her out. Her confessions scared me a bit because I thought she was going mental. Sandy and Holly together. :lol: I hope she goes far, I want her to do something big.
Ozzy - Pregame fave. It's okay for me that he was given a third time (fewer than Rob, at least!) to play, I hope his naivety doesn't get him out again. Really the only thing he was missing is the strategy so he needed to work on that. But considering Semhar to be his ally in the first place might have an impact on him negatively, we'll see.

Hmm...When I was ranking them, I felt wrong because I really am not rooting for anyone to win for now. It's too early! I hope the next eppy will be just as good or better as the premiere! It was great and exciting!

Oh, I forgot to talk about the challenges!

The RC was, err, the pole climbing seemed extremely obvious, but I laughed when Ozzy and Coach both made mistakes on the puzzle (Coach flipped the turtle with another piece when Jeff said he must place the smaller one on top of a larger one. I think that made the puzzle impossible to solve at that point. :lol: ). The IC, though, was intense!

For the intro, I feel last season's was better. This season's cast intros, for some, were kind of weird (Jim's and Mikayla's ones made me laugh out loud :lol3: ) but the music was okay, but obviously I'm getting tired of hearing South Pacific-based renditions. I seriously hope they get out of Samoa soon and go to another location and explore its cultures!
