Survivor South Pacific kicked off tonight with fresh faces, but also Ozzy and Coach returning for their third season each.

The highlights of the episode:

  • Well a lowlight was Brandon Hantz (yes The Russell’s nephew) when he was creeping around like Gollum perving at Mikayla the Lingerie Football Player (is this a made up occupation?). Then he had the gall to say it was her fault on how she was presenting herself for stirring up these feelings of lust.
  • But Ozzie was also thinking with his dick as well when he was wanting to form an alliance with Semhah the spoken word artist.
  • Semhah in the immunity challenge had put herself forward to shoot the coconuts into the basket but puffed out after two shots. Jim the marijuana dispenser owner, and poker player, did not keep a straight face when he had a go at her for saying a feel “sorta bad” for losing the challenge.
  • Jim is lying about his occupation and said he was a teacher as he did not want to appear too smart. He could be a interesting strategist or he could self-implode.
  • Ozzie realised he should not push his view on who should be eliminated in his tribe as he wanted to fit in. He will be safe for awhile as he is so goddamn good at challenges;
  • Bizarrely I want Coach to do better than Ozzie, yes his ego is huge, but he does come across as more interesting. Jeff Probst thinks both need to work on their social games;
  • However my favourite player of the series thus far is Cochran the Harvard Law student. He is a Survivor fanatic, and told host Jeff Probst he wanted to be called by his last name, Cochran, as that is what the host has called all the great players.
  • Dawn the english professor with six kids who also looks like she has time to go to the gym had a emotional breakdown on the first couple of days but he she pulls herself together she might play a strong game;
  • Ozzie’s tribe Servaii lost the first immunity challenge and after Cochran self doubt and anxiety he managed to remain safe.
  • Semhar was sent off to Redemption Island sobbing.

Again Survivor shows why it is the best reality show on TV it was a riveting hour entertainment. I think Channel 9 may have cut down the episode as it was a 90 minute opener in the US however they may have put in more advertisements.

Also here is Jeff Probst answering some questions about the episode and talking to camera straight after the filming of tribal council. He thinks Cochran can recover, and that Ozzie might take him under his wing.

Jeff also shows he can read the game here he talks about who he thinks will be first out, and also is assessment of Coach and Ozzie’s chances.

Did you like the first episode and which of the contestants do you like?

Dorian Gray aged elsewhere if I remember correctly… which part of Jeff is wrinkly, spotted and going off?

Just love this show. Haven’t formed any love/hate feelings yet.

Raver, lingerie football is the roller derby of this century – – and is “the fastest growing pro sports league in the nation (US)”. The season has just kicked off and the Philadelphia Passion lead the Eastern Conference while the sublimely named Las Vegas Sin lead the Western Conference.

RR – The episode I watched was 90 minutes, in Victoria.
Brandon Hantz = typical low-brow, misogynistic, religious zealot. If he wants to perve, just do it. Don’t blame the female. God is a male, or the male is God? Filthy pig.
I could never play this game, but Jim has the right idea. The less revealed about yourself the better, and being a poker player hopefully it pays off for him.
Glad Semah got voted out. Go Cochran!
All in all a good Ep 1.

Yeah effing male chauvinist zealots blaming the woman for their own twisted psyche…. Make me sick. Only a matter of time til he reveals the ‘big secret’… The thing about secrets and being all crafty-like is it’s just no fun unless you’re getting the props for being all super secretive. He’s gonna spill first 10 mins of ep 2 just so everyone can revel in his brilliance… Damned inbred American
