Survivor 'Redemption Island' Preview
 by the Liberal Bastard

Hi All –

This is a quick rundown on the next Survivor season, debuting on February 16th (on CBS, of course.)
Nothing here is spoiler stuff; it’s all been publicized by CBS.

First off, the major changes: Redemption Island, and the return of two prior contestants. First off,
Redemption Island is a new twist; the person voted off goes there and waits for the next person to
be voted off. The two people square off in a competition, and the loser goes home.

I wonder how that will affect the game story – are they going to have three competitions each week?
I’m betting that they will combine the reward/immunity challenge into a single event, and have a
separate challenge for the two (losers) on Redemption Island.

Question I have: Are they only going to allow one person to return? (And When?)
The other twist is bringing back some prior contestants – in this case, Boston Rob and Russell Hantz.
I’m not really happy about this; there are many people that have applied many times for this game
(like ME) - these two will have had SEVEN(!) chances to win this thing. I think this is a bit much,
especially with Russell.

If he does not change his game, he does not have a chance of winning against anybody who has seen
a previous season of his. (Would YOU trust him?) Rob had a change in heart during his last season
(Heroes Vs Villains) but still lost (at Russell’s bidding). I hope this works out, but I think CBS did
a stupid thing with this twist. They've done it before in Guatemala, anyway. I’m gonna be really
PO’ed if they do something stupid like giving the two immunity right off the bat, but I almost
expect it; Russell would be dead meat at the first Tribal, otherwise.

Here is the published list of the two tribes. I plan to explore each contestant’s chances before the
series starts, and hopefully predict the winner (HAH!). The group seems to be fairly tough; there is
the standard bimbo contingent, the athletic guys, as well as a surfer dude, a couple of rednecks
and a former NFL player or two. Only real complaint: most of ‘em are from California!

What, you can’t find ANYBODY from outside of Ca.? (I bet there is a good candidate in Atlanta! Hint, hint!)


Andrea Boehlke, a 21-year-old former U.S. Marine from Random Lake, WI
Matt Elrod, a 22-year-old pre-med student from Nashville, TN
