Survivor Heroes v Villains – Episode 1 – It Is Going To Be Sensational

The interesting thing about the Survivor Heroes V Villains concept is that someone on the Heroes team is going to have to turn into a villain, at least until the merge, and at this stage it looks like JT maybe that guy.

 I cannot believe I am hoping Russell stays in the game awhile. He knows he playing in the A grade now, but he is using his same strategy. Yes the others have not seen the series he was on, as this was filmed just after his series and it had not been shown on TV at this stage. But it took Parvati all of three seconds to work out his strategy.

It was an interesting opening episode which showed it is going to be a great series, everyone was playing the game straight away. I think with all the alpha players around a good strategy maybe floating under the radar.

Here are a few comments on the first episode:

  • I hate the wrestling challenges as I think they are too unregulated, seriously tackling people around the neck is just wrong.Props to Stephanie at just getting on with it after her shoulder popped out and was popped back in;
  • I know the male viewers must have been frustrated by the pixelation in that challenge of Sugar’s boobs and Danielle’s crotch.
  • Tom is playing smart but he has got to have a target on his back. I liked his line to JT another winner saying that if you make top two you need another winner with you, otherwise you don’t have a shot at the title;
  • Boston Rob just made himself the alpha male of the villains by starting fire without flint, and he made Randy look and feel like a douche;
  • Does Rupert have a stash of those rainbow coloured t-shirts that he just wears when he is on Survivor?
  • Sugar obviously cannot not read body language as she chased Colby around camp, plus waking up the whole tribe;
  • Are Shambo’s chooks still running around on Samoa?
  • I wasn’t unhappy that the villains won the first challenge.
  • Sugar is a moron – you put the knife in Amanda when Cirie is right there.
  • Tom made another strategic move and said keep Sugar as she is a follower, and pointed out that Cirie’s got a strong strategic game and she should go. Cirie tried the throw it right back at you strategy and tried to get Tom or Stephanie eliminated, but at this stage that would be a dumb move as you need physical strength to win challenges;
  • Due to Cirie’s absolute uselessness in challenges she will have a huge target on her back in the beginning, the fact she has gone so far in Survivor with this liability definitely makes her a hero.

However they made the right decision – it was no loss losing Sugar she was useless.

Just to show how dumb Sugar is apparently she tweeted that she had slept with JT pre game and he promised they would stick together – see the whole sorry tale on Blog Zap2It

Also here is an interview with no spoiler links where Sugar claims some contestants may have some inside knowledge on Russell as they have inside links on Survivor. Ok she named Parvati.

Raver, agree with your comments regarding the overly aggressive wrestling challenges. Even the NRL outlaws the ‘chicken wing’ move put on Stephanie. It’d actually be safer from a muscle-skeletal viewpoint to just allow the contestants to go at it with their fists. Although rather than pixelating tits, arse and minge, the producers would be pixelating out the blood sprays.

Am enjoying Russell having to deal with a player of the calibre and, dare I say, character, of Boston Rob.

Sugar? Is that her real name or just her porn name? No loss as she was as annoying to watch as she appeared to be to her fellow contestants.

Poor Rupert looks like he’s stuffed again. Seems never destined to win this show.

I love watching Boston Rob, so glad he’s back, if he leaves before jury I’ll be gutted (little worried about the preview). I really liked Sugar during her original season, but if she pulled the loud, weird stalker tricks that round too I can now see why none of her fellow contestants did.

CB, Poor Rupert? He’s the only player who didn’t need to win to get a million. I’m not feeling sorry for him.

I hope Amanda gets final two again. It’d be hilarious to see her lose, or uplifting to see her win (unless I come to hate her through the season).

I love Boston Rob too. He’s always entertaining to watch. I hope he’s not out early. Russell with have his work cut out more more this time. His fellow villiains aren’t going to be fooed so easily. Should be fun.

There’s just some players you’d be happy to never see again. Sugar for one. That said, I can’t wait to see the back of Colby either.

as said b4, rather disappointing but alliances have not developed yet so the intersting part still to come. Hope the challenges are different from prev ious. They all seem to meld into one after a while, but I guess when you’re on a good thing flog the living crap out of it!
Took great satisfaction seeing James (afro yank) whopping Snot blot Rob’s arse.
Samoa home of the chicken?? how do you suppose they just happened to be there near the heroes camp Haw haw!
Colby reckons the villains will self destruct. HAH good luck with that Colb! Looked to me like they will kick the heroes ass.
Rupert Boneham …. still a loveable BoneHEAD! cant light fire with flint after all these years still impractical . You make it hard for mr to ROOT for you! (boof)
Tom. He was right. They should have got rid of Cerie first. She’s still lazy and useless and utterly scheming, can’t wait to see her go, but fear this will now not happen until much later.
JJAP still a blathering blowhard. Fire is life ritual…..Cmon after 20 years can’t you come up with something else. eg sex is good or drugs are bad etc.
Hope Afro James or Rupert win but they wont
Russell you dope. You’ve learned nothing from last time. 50% of it is a SOCIAL game.

Shambo’s Chickens! I’m going to have to start a band, just so I can use that as the name…

Culinary Boner – Agree Rupert looks like his mojo went when he broke his toe.

Ursa – Loving Boston Rob, I presume he is going to spear Russell. I am not a great fan of Amanda, but do want her to stay in the game for awhile.

Wurstsemmel – I think Russel “Survivor’s Greatest Player” is not going to last long at all. His style of play just seems a bit gauche, against these Survivor A-Listers.

Sourkraut – will be very surprised if James wins, however they both could go far in the game as they are relatively inoffensive. I think you are right about Cirie. Though to be honest I would like to see her win.

Injera – sounds like a bluegrass band, bags playing the washboard.

Have to disagree.
Cant stand snot blob Rob or Perverti or Cerie. Hope they are all out early.
Russells ego will kill offf his game
Unfortunately James is just too naive, but is certainly the most worthy (when it comes to physical challenges and working around the camp)
Rupert as mentioned b4 is still a loveable boofhead and wont win
I would LOVE to see Amanda win and she is not even blonde!
At least one of Shambles chooks is still on Samoa, but it would be scatterd in small lumps on or under the ground after she BOILED the shitter out of it a la some of the lesser lights on Oz reality cooking shows.
By the way, does anyone know what they are supposed to do when they want to go to the Dunny? Is bog paper at least supplied or are they supposed to use grass and leaves? that would cause some pretty severe irritation after a while, I would think!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just a thought, not to be read during your dinner!

bags I get the YEEHAHHS!

9 Injera { 03.14.10 at 10:39 am }

Looks as though we’ve almost got ourselves a lineup, RR and Sourkraut! And I guess that leaves me with the uke…

10 Reality Raver { 03.14.10 at 11:21 am }

Injera – uke and vocals….
