Mick and Jaison were pathetic, sry.
I liked them as people, but i do agree that they were pathetic players and also totally underserving.

Might be interesting to see what some folks think on season breakdown, now that we've got more activity boosting the Survivor community - here's my rough season breakdown by tier, can't exactly place them line by line:


Tier 1: Micronesia, Heroes v Villains, Caramoan, Philippines, Thailand, Cook Islands, China, Samoa, San Juan Del Sur, Guatemala

Tier 2: Borneo, Aussie Outback, Panama, Tocantins, Marquesas, Worlds Apart, Nicaragua, Cagayan, Blood vs Water

Tier 3: All-Stars, Palau, Pearl Islands, Africa, Amazon, One World

Tier 4: Vanuatu, Fiji, Gabon, Redemption Island, South Pacific

Tier 1
Guatemala was the first season with an idol and had a colorful cast that I think is under appreciated, some obvious great seasons in that first tier are due to "returnee" status, and I thought some unique folks in Philippines/Cook/China/Samoa were fantastic, Russel owned his season and I don't find him nearly as unlikable. Todd's China dominance and Brian's Thailand game really appealed to me, even if Brian nearly bombed out in his FTC to edge out the horrendous Clay.

Post-merge SJDS was awesome too.

Tier 2
Some early series greats created a lot of foundation for me in watching this show, even though I watched S3-S10 after a lot of newer ones. Tribe dynamics in Tocantins, Panama, and Cagayan were fun to watch and see play out, much like Worlds Apart is currently (and depending on what happens moving forward, World Apart could move up to Tier 1 for me.) The first instance of BvW was a nice twist and Nicaragua has a slew of colorful characters I'd love to see play again, even if people didn't like the season overall.

Tier 3
All-Stars was a bit disappointing for me - really thought they had a lot of floaters come back, even if they were iconic that doesn't mean I wanted to see them play again (Rudy, Tom B...most of the winners even weren't fun a second time around); Palau I was meh on because I thought Steph went deeper after her tribes decimation, but glad she didnt' so Guatemala could happen. The rest are just either seasons where predictable things happened, or I didn't like the characters as much (though granted I didn't appreciate Rob C in Amazon until much later, and was bummed he was an early All-Stars boot.)

Tier 4
Vanuatu, meh, not bad and I like that the ladies took over, but then Chris won and I was like "ugh." Fiji and Gabon had some cool characters (CORRINE!) but overall not fantastic seasons (Big Brother style Fiji and the weird division of tribes in Gabon..)

Redemption Island + SPacific - in theory, cool to have 2 returnees from other seasons and see how that dynamic works out, but Redemption Island as a concept was always SO predictable, rarely did someone "upset" out there and kick out someone super strong. Not to mention I'm not a Boston Rob fan, Philip was disgusting (now I appreciate Ashley from that season SO much more for her fierce play), and Coach was tiring in his third appearance.

I just gotta say Caramoan is one of the worst seasons EVER, along with One World. They shouldn't be rated as high imo. OW was just boring and predictable while Caramoan had the worst possible group of returnees :iok I only liked Brenda, Malcolm, Corinne and Andrea (also Franny, who... didn't really play... again..) and they were all considered FAVOURITES... (:;) The whole Philip stealth r us parody left a horrible stench. Plus all the Dawn meltdowns.... :groan:
Oh, and I hated Cochran, so... yeah...

From recent seasons, Cagayan is definitely the best. :<3

^ OMG YES, South Pacific was a horrific season, Savaii getting pagogned and then Ozzy almost winning to make the season a little better but chokes at F4 IC, and a F3 of Sophie,Albert, & Coach? Hated the F3.

Totally! I was a really great season with interesting twists and ann amazing cast! The winenr was great too btw :<3

In SoPa I was rooting for Savaii - Keith, Whitney, Jim, Dawn (before she was a Caramoan freak) - and all of the worst people made it to the top, thank God Sophie won and not someone like Albert or Rick.. And btw I liked Ozzy & Coach on for entertainment (though I'd have rather had just 18 newbies), but didn't liked their gameplay that specific season and didn't want a returnee to win.

I actually do like Gabon in some ways, but for me compared to other seasons, the tribe assignments in the beginning we're ridic and made it super unbalanced. Gillian, Susie, Crystal, Randy should not all have been on one original tribe. Granted they didn't know Crystal would suck at every challenge :P

SoPa's Christine/Stacey <3<3 - I loved Dawn that season, and Sophie winning redeemed a lackluster season. I am anti-Coach, though. Also Rick, like easily up there for one of the MOST invisible castaways of all time. Barely any confessionals and somewhat of a Keith in that he had no clue what he was doing.

Redemption concept could have worked out well, just an odd mix cast and HATE Philip.

Oh yeah, I forgot my two favourites - Sophie and Christine - were on the outs and were booted pre-merge :( I was hoping for Christine to return, but then Ozzy came.....
Pretty much the same was with RI - Kristina and Francesca were on the outs and they were like my favourite people on Ometepe.... AND I'm a superfan of Russell because he brings so much to the game, but he and the awesome Stephanie + Krista as well got booted pre-merge :gaah: At least one of them might return.

Doesn't impact season quality overall for me though, my point was it was extremely boring when Kota won nearly every challenge because they had a much stronger team, even after the swap happened. Granted with the old folks on Espada in Nicaragua the same thing happened, but tribal dynamics were a bit more interesting and I just felt they had some people playing harder out there. Though the double-quit of Naonka and Purple Kelly should be a huge plummet for me since I hate quits with a passion :P

Also random fact about Gabon I just found out - 5 players were age 29 :P

Crystal is one of my all-time favs, and I don't hate Sugar as much as others do, maybe I need to move Gabon higher. XD

The rolling giant ball down mountain challenge with Ace/Dan as goalies was fun to watch haha.

I'm hoping for another culture-themed season like China, Guatemala and Pearl Islands. I think Philippines was the last season of that kind.
