Re: Survivor 27: Blood vs Water
Tyson was clearly the best player. He deserved to win...That being said, I can't stand him. He is cocky and annoying as hell.
Gervase is also a goof. Did he really think anyone was going to see him as "making moves"? He and Monica were told time and time again that everyone thought they were being drug to the finals, and they would say "no we're not", but if that is the perception, then regardless of whether it is true or not you need to do something to change the perception. I don't get why Monica did not flip the switch at some point. I felt for her in the final episode, and truly think she is a good person, but man is she a poor survivor player (other than in immunity challenges).
Does anyone else think that the constant hidden immunity idols are too much? I don't like that aspect of the game. True, it has provided some of the best moments of survivor history, but now it is like every season there is someone who is "good" at finding the hidden idol and then can waltz through for a long time solely on the basis of that.
I also am tired of the gimmicks...can we just have a survivor: regular season? It feels like the show and Jeff focus in on trying to appeal to people by shoving the same annoying characters (Russell, Boston Rob, Nerd Boy, Rupert) down our throats time and time again. Is Rupert really that loved still? I don't know anyone that cared for him since his original season. He seems to be a caricature of his original self.
All that negativity aside, it was an entertaining season, with a disappointingly boring ending. However, I believe that the show still has what it takes to be interesting.
On a side note...Man Ciera scared me a little bit...I at times almost felt like she was forcing the tears as her mom got voted to redemption and then knocked out...she was certainly a fireball.
