Well, it’s almost here. Wednesday starts a new season of Survivor. Are you fan or foe? Me, I walk somewhere in limbo. Each season, I get frustrated. Each season I wonder how those people can live with themselves. I swear that I’m done. I’ll never watch another episode.
Then I start seeing the trailers for the new season. And I start feeling the tug. So I head on over to CBS to check out the line up. Just to see who made it onto the show. Really. That’s all I’m going to do.
Wow. They’ve got old vs. young going this season, huh? Hmmm. That doesn’t sound like an even match-up, does it? And before you get your hackles up, I qualify for the “old” camp. 🙂 But hey, they’ve got Jimmy Johnson. That man knows how to win, right? And a couple of buff looking gents, as well as some women that don’t look like they belong on the old side. Maybe these “oldies” have a shot.
Then I go look at the young camp. Okay, I admit it. I picked my first favorite based on looks alone. It was the eyes! I’m all about the eyes. Whose eyes did I pick? Want to try to guess? I’ll list the name at the end of the blog.
Here’s the website link: http://www.cbs.com/primetime/survivor/
I’ve been watching some of the previews online and I’m checking out the younger camp. Did that kid actually say he was going to “mow ‘em all down”? Bring it on, surfer dude! Goodbye, blue eyes first fav. I’m jumping ship to the oldies camp.
Wait a minute. How did I get so involved in this season and it hasn’t even started? Okay. That’s it. I’ll watch the season premiere, but then I’m done. Oh, who am I kidding? I’m in for the long haul. Always have been and probably always will be.
Lavada will be here on Wednesday to talk about the new television season, but she was gracious enough to let me jump the gun to talk about one of the most controversial shows out there. How about you? Are you Team Survivor or Team…Not Survivor. (Yes, that’s a bad play on the Twilight theme). Will you be watching Survivor or boycotting it as the ultimate in reality television? Or are you somewhere in between? Got a favorite player? Want to share who?
I promised you a name, didn’t I? Be forewarned. My fav’s tend to get voted off. Based on the eyes alone (and before I jumped ship to the oldies camp), my first fav is Shannon.
