This seems like the appropriate spot for this:

An interesting twist for S30 would be for them to have a 'double' season, but to not let either group know there was another group until they got to the 'second' merge point.  So 32/36 people 8/9 per 'tribe', 'merge' A/B and C/D at 9 remaining (to make them think it's a 7 person jury/2 person finale).  When each group hits the 'final 4' then merge them into a single tribe with all the jury members now united as well.  Final tribal could then be either 3 or 4 members with 12/13 jury.
If Survivor does survive another 3 seasons after S26. I truly doubt it. :lol:

We talked about something similar at work a while back, but we couldn't see how the logistics would work out.

Each show would have to air two immunity challenges (which means no reward challenges, and without reward challenges or reward/immunity challenges, contestans would get suspicious), plus they'd have to air the goings on at 4 full sized camps, and two tribal councils each show.

Also, merging each group at the "final 4" wouldn't be fair.  You'd be asking the jury to vote on one out of four contestants to win, when they know absolutely nothing about two of them.  Or, what happens if the real finalists all come from one side?  Then you're asking for jury members to vote for someone that they have never met, or seen play at all.

Now, what we decided could work would be to do it up until the merge.  At the merge, Jeff tells tribe A and B, "drop your buffs, you are merged." and tosses them a bag of buffs.  They start putting them on, and realize that there are way too many.  They ask why, and Jeff yells, "come on in guys..." and tribes C and D walk in, looking just as confused.  Jeff explains that all 4 tribes (who knew nothing of each other) are merged into one tribe.

I doubt this "double" season would ever happen, but one way to solve the airtime problem is to have two shows a week (or a 2-hour show each week).   The first show/hour would feature the A/B side and the second show/hour would feature the C/D side.  Then after the merge you could go to one show/hour each week.

You would probably need some double elimination episodes, too, especially after the merge.

I doubt Colton would ever return. S 25 is Russell Swan, Skupin and Penner. S26 is FvF type.

10 fans, 10 returnees. Also Phillip, Dawn, Cochran, Brenda, Erik R all on S 26.

Just because he's not on 25 or 26 doesn't mean he would never come back... I didn't like the guy either, but if he came back, I'd definitely watch.

I second that. Loathe Colton... but he's good ratings and drama.

Except a lot of people threaten to quit watching the show because of him. The guy is actually one of those villians that is bad for ratings. I don't think he is comming back any time soon.

I'm highly spoiled with this (and the upcoming) season but I've decided that my interest in Survivor is back so I'll be watching religiously. :geekon:

Okay, I don't know what Survivor is doing but their pick for the 10 (rumoured) returning players on S26 is pretty bad. -_-

I CERTAINLY HOPE IT'S NOT TRUE.

THere is a rumor of Survivor 27/28 location being in the Solomon Islands.

"Also, rumored location of Survivor 27 and 28 is the Solomon Islands" WAS located at this blog but has since been removed:

If this turns out to be real, it's fine with me as long as I didn't see Colton's name on the list  :cmas16

Not crazy about some of the returnees but Colton after the season with Abi would be too much.

I think Survivor lost their mind. How is Brandon, Philip and Francesca favourites? I think they truly lost the definition of it. Picking these ten is like, they can't find ten players to play so they are just throwing in random names. :cmas30:

If this is the cast, I might actually stop watching. But I thought Natalie Bolton was confirmed?

I agree about Francesca - she was interesting for one episode but they can't seriously bring back someone who was a first exit unless they were doing Survivor: First Boots or something... :res:

I'm not too crazy about Brandon, Erik or Cochran, even though I don't dislike any of them.

But I am EXTREMELY happy to see Andrea, Brenda, Corinne and Phillip there! <3 I do wish Natalie Bolton was included too. :(

Relatively happy to see Dawn and Malcolm, but not as much as those other four.

Overall, I don't dislike any of them, although I do like some more than others obviously, assuming this list is correct.

I'm still not too positive about Francesca being in the cast...

And although I do agree that Brandon, Cochran, Philip, Brenda and Andrea all were good picks to return... but how are they Favourites??? My issue here is with the word "Favourite". Philip and Brandon were obviously the villians on their season... so WHY... It's just like I don't get why JFP was a favourite in FvF in Season 16 as well! :(

I agree with Joab in that the word "Favourite" is used a little incorrectly. I think the way they are using it is by the meaning of people we like to watch play, as opposed to people we like period.

Phillip is amazing <3 but definitely a villain! If we see some more meditation and craziness, I will be over the moon! :cmaslol

And Brandon could be considered a villain although I couldn't really disagree with people considering him a hero either.

ANDREA is most definitely a favourite! <333 Aside from Phillip, she was the only person to make Redemption Island watchable and tolerable for me (not counting pre-merge boots). :cmas9

Brenda was my personal favourite castaway on Nicaragua (just ahead of NaOnka and Chase) so I am very happy about that choice! :cmas9

If we are talking about "villains", then Corinne would have to be the biggest one of all. I really loved watching her play on Gabon, but the Final Tribal Council with Sugar was just one of the most horrible things I have ever seen... :oh She will definitely add drama, and I really hope she is sitting on the jury! :hoot:

Dawn would definitely be considered a favourite for many (and I liked her too), as would Cochran and Erik I suppose (liked them both but not that much).

I think Malcolm is a good justifiable choice (although Abi would have been my choice from Philippines).

Dawn, Malcolm and maybe Cochran and Brenda and Andrea are justifiable choices.

But there has been so many "fun players" in past season. Why didn't they get Christina back for more dumb blondes moments (I know they didn't invite her probably because she's just so not strategic).. but hey, Alicia was a pain in the ass to watch so why not her... over... Francesca?

And what about Jane. Jane was awesome in Nicaragua!
