    Survivor 41 - Thursdays on 9Go!

    Nothing's going to change as long as people continue to watch, and Survivor is still winning its timeslot. Jeff's certainly been an ass for the last decade or so, ever since he became EP as well as host, but he can get away by saying that all twists are initially hated because he knows people...

    Survivor 41 - Thursdays on 9Go!

    Exit press actually makes it seem as if Xander is actually the goat that anyone could beat in the end rather than Heather.

    International Survivor Thread - Past Seasons Talk

    SA9 was announced a few days ago as ~Return of the Outcasts~ which sounds like a second chance type of season with no winners or finalists. I'm excited but that's a shame because there are a few winners I wouldn't mind seeing back and A LOT of finalists I'd love to see again. But nonetheless I'm...

    Survivor 41 - Thursdays on 9Go!

    Eh, I get what you're saying when explicitly comparing end results to BBUS but it's not like Survivor has a stunning track record with regards to its Black contestants. Vecepia's win has largely been ignored by the franchise and Jeff continually cites Marquesas as one of his least favorite...

    Survivor 41 - Thursdays on 9Go!

    Oh I'm not saying her game was flawless by any means, but this season has undeniably been Shan's season up until this point and for good reason. She definitely didn't play a winning game, but she pulled off some impressive moves and had a really strong run for a while. And I've been burned by...

    Survivor 41 - Thursdays on 9Go!

    Another good episode! This cast really is able to shine and create natural, human drama when they aren't bogged down with twists. Sad about the boot but it was a great sendoff for a great player who surely has an invitation locked up to a returning players season. I wonder how long it's gonna...

    Survivor 41 - Thursdays on 9Go!

    Again, the cast isn't so much the problem this season as the twists and production are. This would probably be the best season since Kaoh Rong if this cast was left to their own devices rather than being weighed down by idols and advantages and twists.

    Survivor 41 - Thursdays on 9Go!

    Eh, if anything I'd say Xander is one of the lesser ones left. He's just a generic white guy who isn't particularly telegenic but is being thrust into a bigger spotlight than he is capable of handling. He hasn't done anything besides fool Liana at the merge TC, and that's quickly turned into a...

    Survivor 41 - Thursdays on 9Go!

    This was surprisingly a really good episode? Easily the best since the JD boot. Shame that this cast is being wasted on this season because they clearly can deliver even in spite of all the production bullshit.

    Survivor 41 - Thursdays on 9Go!

    I thought that was one of the better episodes! More fun character moments than usual and actual personality conflicts are always fun. Thank you Shan!

    BB VIP 2021 - Ratings Thread

    An hour and a half is still a VERY long episode. I know Australia loves to supersize everything into the length of a feature film but still.

    As far as I'm concerned Evvie can go after she begged to be on the Jury. I would've tried to change my vote right then and there.

    Survivor 41 - Thursdays on 9Go!

    I thought the episode was a mess and everything wrong with modern Survivor! The twists are nonsensical, the advantages are suffocating, live Tribal Councils actively kill the momentum and suspense of an episode, and I ultimately didn't care what happened because we haven't really gotten to know...

    Survivor 41 - Thursdays on 9Go!

    Everything new that's weighing this season down -- the OTT sob story video packages, the cinematic editing with slow-mo shots for dramatic effect, the increasing number of nonsensical twists and advantages, the addition of a non-elimination episode this past week -- are all straight from...

    Survivor 41 - Thursdays on 9Go!

    This show is becoming as absurd as Australian Survivor at this point.
