Malcolm was non-existent in this episode. Maybe producers though people would remember him from last season.

Possibly. :tup:

Anyone notice how when Malcolm came in off the helicopter/plane, there was no reaction from the Fans, because they wouldn't have seen Philippines yet so they had no idea who he was. :lol:
1. Don't pick up the phone - You know he's only calling 'cause he's drunk and alone.
2. Don't let him in - You have to kick him out again.
3. Don't be his friend - You know you're gonna wake up in his bed in the morning.
And if you're under him, you ain't gettin' over him. ♥

LOL I noticed it. I wonder what the favourites were told about Malcolm. They wanted to ask Lisa but brought back Malcolm.

Yeah, I am also curious about that. :lol:

Anyone digging the theme song? I think its the best in awhile.

My stream was lagging during the theme song, but from what I heard, it sounded pretty good. :tup: I'll watch it again when it airs in Australia tonight.

BTW, did anyone hear the episode title? I didn't hear anyone say it... ??? Could be due to my stream lagging at that specific moment I suppose...

OMG IS IT ON TONIGHT IN AUSTRALIA? MIRACLE!

Episode title went to phillip I thought. It was when he was talking about Francesqua in his confessional.

Jeff just called the Favourites the heroes!

Glad I wasn't the only one who caught that!

Most entertaining season premiere in a while, for me. Interesting seeing some of the favorites getting under-the-radar edits (Malcolm; Corinne; Brandon, kinda). Immunity Challenge felt like classic Survivor. Hopefully it's a sign of things to come this season. :tup:

I think it'd be funny if Probst had Francesca eat that rock at the reunion. :lol:

It was Phillip about Francesca in an interview.

- Very limited screen time for Brenda goddess, plus her being in the minority. :(

<////////////////3

OMG poor Brenda. :( Well, IMO her Brendamazing Lownage skills will get her out of it, so we don't have to worry.

Yes it is on tonight at 7:30 on GO!

OMG YES, thanks for the heads up <3

Rargh I missed it. :(

Only bad thing is that it clashed with My Kitchen Rules on 7 (for those who don't know MKR is a ultra popular cooking show in Australia)

Problem solved by taping Survivor and watching it after MKR.

I want to see Francesca eat the rock after she got cocky and said the whole "I'll eat the rock" thing.

I am so over Phillip already :groan:  And Shamar might have had a chance if the edit wasn't the way it was.

Between Phillip's stories and analogies and nick names and  :blahblah  and Shamar (i thank him for his service) but with his always relating things to Iraq I'm over those 2 w/stories.. I want game play game play game play!

 I am so glad that Andrea stayed! I hope now that shocked her enough to get into game mode but under the radar :plane:

And next week we are threatened with signs of HANTZNESS..  I'm not sure what Brandon thinks that will accomplish but we do see Dawn crying.. bless her heart.. she truely is a good person I hope those tears are not the result of Brandon.
zero, zilch, nada, nothing!

Cannot STAND Shemar after this episode! Fair enough he was an Iraq war veteran (which I completely thank his service), I just think he is a really arrogant person. Hope he's the first boot for the fans :groan:

Apart from that, I thought the episode in generally was really good! Hardly any screen-time for Malcolm, Brenda and like, half the fans wasn't good though, can only remember 6 of the fans lol

Or in my case since I had to work, tape both and watch them the next day. :lol:

Lowest rated season premiere ever.  :stare

Below 9 million viewers wow.



That's awful! :'(

Bringing back former players is getting old on Survivor. Overdone is NOT good for ratings.  But it was up against AI... ???

They should stick to 1 season a year if ratings continue like this. Same goes for TAR.

But they almost have to considering the double seasons.

No they don't. I wouldn't care if they never brought back returning players ever again.

Or at least they could put effort into the cast by casting people that actually mattered, eg NOT COCHRAN OR BRANDON.

I think usually the season gets better ratings as it progresses.

MOST of the favs that were brought back were middle of the pack people. and this leads me to believe they want the outrageous ones to stand out like Phillip, Brandon and this gives Malcolm a chance to win. I almost feel the manipulation  it the most transparent this season.

Regarding the fans.. we all know it takes some time for us to warm up to who ever is new on any cast of reality tv..

At this time I do not have a "fan" favorite yet but i am rooting for  Andrea on the Favorites and that's only because now she has a chance to change up her game with that kick in the butt she just got! :lol:

Just watched This episode. Here's my opinion on everyone:

Fans(Gota):

Laura: Didn't see much of her but seems nice.

Sherri: Probably strongest woman on team, don't love her, don't hate her

Matt: Seems like a great guy, looks like stereotypical hick, will fly under radar

Hope: Cool girl, hope that group of 4 goes far.

Eddie: Nice, cool guy, probably one of my favorites.

Julia: Got like 1 minute of screen time, no strong opinion.

Allie: Another favorite, she will stay for a while.

Michael: Loved the outfit, seems strategical and i will grow to like him a lot.

Shamar: Douche at first, but slowly gained back my pride for an ex-marine. #AmericaStatus.

Reynold: Great competitor, snuggle probably ruined him, hopefully his group of 4 ends up on top of the tribe.

Favorites(Bikal):

Andrea: She's a leader this year which is good, that will help, but she won't win.

Brandon: Hate me if you want. I REALLY liked the guy. If he stays like that I want him to go FAR!

Brenda: Shocked nobody thought to vote her out. Happy that nobody thought to vote her out.

Corinne: Less bitchy obviously, no strong opinion yet.

Dawn: Thought she'd be boring, but I just got this great vibe and I really like her a lot.

Erik: DONT JOIN CRAZY FREAK. And ya of course I like Erik, who doesn't.

Francesca: Brought that vote out upon herself, should have layed low for a little bit, won't miss her.

Cochran: Seems much more social, team likes him, love that him & Dawn are reunited.

Phillip: Put clothes on. Don't talk about your family. And I'll still hate you.

Malcolm: It's Malcolm, he's amazing, so far my favorite in the game.

That's it. I think this season should bring ratings up hopefully, this season has LOADS of potential.

I'm rooting for Sherri from fans. That's all. The rest suckass.

For the favourites, it was weird not seeing Malcolm talk and being socially awkward, weird seeing a nice and funny Philip but just a little annoying only, weird seeing a nice Corinne, weird seeing a strategic and cut-throat Dawn, weird seeing a paranoid Andrea, weird seeing an under radar Brenda, weird seeing a not so naive Erik, weird seeing a normal Brandon (which he will return back to abnormal next week), weird seeing a sociable Cochran.

Which makes me like this season premier. So many new insights and different changes in personalities and character.

Can't wait for Episode 2.

Who else thinks that Reward should be Immunity and Immunity should be Reward? The Immunity Challenge was lame. Brutal fighting FTW. :lol3:
