It became official last week that Survivor: Winners at War was my favorite season of Survivor. Last week’s episode only solidified that statement.
Jeremy Collins is one of my favorite players that has ever played this game. His win on Survivor: Cambodia was legendary, resulting in an emotional final tribal council as he revealed his wife’s secret pregnancy. He would end up winning in an expected unanimous vote and it would turn out to be one of my favorite moments in Survivor.
For the past two weeks, Jeremy has been on the hot seat and for good reason. He’s a likable guy who’s managed to somehow make it to the merge. His fellow Survivor veterans know how dangerous he is and they want him gone. Continue reading ‘Survivor: Winners at War’ Keeps Duking Out Great Episodes
This season of Survivor already was easily in my top 5 favorite seasons of all time with something exciting and unexpected transpiring weekly but this week, this week’s episode The Full Circle officially confirmed the fact that this is my favorite season of all time.
Every season the several remaining Survivor players get a chance to see their loved ones but usually only one loved one is permitted to arrive on the island. Survivor: Winners at War did something historic by letting the players and even the players voted out on Edge of Extinction see their families; I’m talking children and all. Oh man, the tears were pouring and I did everything I could to keep it together. Until the end when something else historic happened; the jury swarming Jeff Probst with gratitude. It really got me choked up. Continue reading It’s Official: ‘Survivor: Winners at War’ Is My Favorite Season of ‘Survivor’
Survivor: Winners at War has continued to impress me, delivering riveting episode after riveting episode as these players find new ways to make each week more and more interesting. This latest episode, War Is Not Pretty, has definitely been the best episode so far.
There was an awesome reward in Chinese takeout, Sarah gave up her reward to Nick because it was his birthday but the kind gesture only made these veterans skeptical, Michelle gave up her four Fire Tokens to gain a powerful advantage in the game in the form of a 50/50 Immunity Idol which will probably come into play sometime later in the game, paranoia at camp after the Immunity challenge was high, leading to a hilarious scramble from all eleven remaining players left in the game, oh wait, that’s not all. Continue reading ‘Survivor: Winners At War’ Strikes Back with an Immunity Idol Knockout
This season’s treatment of the “Old-School” legends has been brutal, to say the least. Four of the greatest people to ever play Survivor have been voted out in stunning succession; Tyson Apostol, “Boston” Rob Mariano, Parvati Shallow, and Sandra Diaz-Twine. Shot after shot has been fired and these great players were caught in the bullseye, either by blindside, blunt rejection, sheer gameplaying, or the ultra use of deception. It’s been a staggering turn of events and I have loved every moment of it. Continue reading Two More ‘Survivor’ Legends Bite the Sword in an Epic Episode To Remember
Survivor: Winners at War has been a really fun season so far with some of the best gameplay in the first six tribal councils. In the last three weeks, we’ve seen the “Old-Schoolers” (I’m dubbing the returning players from Seasons 1-20 as the Old-Schoolers) get a wakeup call in this new-school way of playing the game. First, it was Ethan Zohn blindsided by his “New-School” tribemates, then Tyson Apostol who, led by Sandra, was ousted by an incredible blindside he, of course, didn’t see coming, and then Rob Mariano who was FINALLY voted off when his fellow tribemates were able to see through his renown bamboozling.
Rob would find himself on the hot seat due to a huge twist that put a monkey-wrench in the relationships created so far. The two tribes of fifteen combined were split into three tribes of five people, showcasing a whole lot of switcheroos. One such pairing that was honestly cringe-worthy to watch was Michelle and Wendell’s pairing, considering that the two recently dated and broke up under bad circumstances but were forced to be together on an island.
The tension was legitimate and even I was uncomfortable. This should be a very interesting storyline moving further and I wonder if Michelle will get the last laugh as she sends Wendell packing. We’ll see. Continue reading A Big Twist Delivers an Exciting Fifth Episode for ‘Survivor: Winners at War’
Survivor; it’s my favorite show on television. Twice a year we are afforded two seasons of this fascinating reality show that sometimes manage to impress and sometimes become SUPER BORING! The 40th Season (yeah, it’s been on that long) began this past Wednesday and it was the most excited I’ve been about a Survivor season premiere in a long while…in fact, maybe ever.
I watched my favorite season, Season 20: Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains, on-demand and so the suspense paired with having to wait for a new episode every week was non-existent. This time, I am not afforded with such a luxury and that is a BUMMER.
Let me tell you, I loved this premiere. It was so much fun from beginning to end. Seeing so many winners return for an epic season that’ll provide the biggest reality television prize of all time ($2 million) is not only mind-blowing but so riveting at the same time.
