Rob is one of my favorite players ever, yet I will still not watch that season again. I don't think Andrea was as bad as say, Natalie, but that isn't saying much. She got brought back because she was pretty, not because she was a gamer. And that's fine, we all like pretty people. Maybe she'll be a gamer this time.

I agree she was the "least zombie-like", but maintain that this is not saying much. Regardless, she's hardly the most questionable of the returnees, so I don't care.

Andrea was kept for a long time because they stopped losing and she was somewhat close to Nathalie and Ashley and Rob didn't want to go on their wrong side. She won her way back through the redemption challenge and that alone is good enough to have her back a second time around. She didn't make much moves but she had options, the same think couldn't have been said for the other members of her tribe.

I think that having options but instead agreeing to let Rob win is probably worse than simply letting Rob win.

Anyway, again, I really have no problem with Andrea. She is not the worst person they brought back. I wish people would stop making me argue that she wasn't that great. For her season, she wasn't bad. The End, basically.

In Andreas defence I dont think she had much choice, that season was perfectly set up for a BRob win. +If she targeted Rob chances are she would not come back for FVF

Rob should have been credited as a producer the whole season was a set up from Day One

I think I'm going to keep my new avy until Queen Brenda is voted out or (hopefully) wins.

Say what you will about RI but Rob played a perfect game. FWIW I think he would have been just as successful if he had been placed on Zapatera. He's a natural-born leader who is very persuasive and charismatic. There's a reason he got rid of Franny and Kristina right off the bat--they were the ones who would have targeted him. And then he found the HII, which definitely gave him an advantage. And also, I think there's a reason Ashley, Andrea, and Grant wanted to have him at the end. They probably would have beaten him.

The whole cast was set up for BRob, they didn't know where he would end up on. I dont disagree about being a natural born leader, its a fact afterall that he was in control of every tribe he started on at the start of the game. However I also think they've always brought back bad players, most of the time. But then its a show, and they bring whoever they think will give them the best ratings.

Thank you. And Ashley and Natalie should be banned from coming back - not that they would be invited in the first place.

Ashley played a strong game. Not that I would expect any of the misogynists around here to give her any credit.

Moi aussi. He made good TV. He did recently kill it on Survivor Jeopardy though. And he did a Caramoan preview podcast with Rob Cesternino.

RAtings seem to have hit a new time low, not surprised, and expected that. I think the Fvf is a bad idea as a whole, just bring back all stars. Anyway from the top of my head, would have rather seen: Holly, Stephanie V, Abi, Shane Powers ( But he may now be too far back for fvf). Anyone rather then Phillip, Cochran, Fran, and Icecream scooper guy.
