Back to Back Survivors

Filming for Survivor 19 took place from June 11th until July 19th which was the day of the Final Tribal Council filming. Starting August 9th and filming until September 16th which was the filming date for Survivor 20 Final Tribal council.

The television broadcast of Survivor 19 took place beginning September 17th, one day after filming of Survivor 20.

Because of this fact no one knew about Russell’s game play, “except” from sources unknown, Parvati somehow learned about Russell. Either from Russell himself or some of the production people whom Parvati knew from her past shows.

Russell actually only had about 20 days between shows and didn’t know about the outcome of his first game until well after S20 was done filming. He had been in two consectitive games but didn’t even know the outcome of the first one until well after the second one ended.

I believe it worked against him because he never had the chance to see how the jury voted and why until after he filmed S20. He plays a good game but his attitude toward the people in the game sucks. Piss everyone offf and you’ll get no votes. Game play is just part of the game. Also, he has finally had the game played against him and now has very little control of his destiny without finding a HII or winning individual immunity. He haas been lucky so far and may stay that way,BUT, he will again have trouble with the Jury at the end of the game.

Sandra with the HII should make it at least to f5 ans possibly beyond if she aligns with the girl power.

Parvati still reigns as Queen bee of the girl alliance and might be Russell’s downfall.

Colby and Rupert are in trouble, even if they get help from Russell as shown in next weeks preview, they are on thin ice!

Jerri will have to stay in the background to make it to the end, no ifs, ands or butts about it! (pun intended)

  1. Even though Russell doesn’t know the outcome of Samoa, the final jury questioning did take place and he HAD to have an idea from that that he wasn’t liked and that he didn’t receive many votes. It was fairly obvious based on the questions and comments from people like Jaison, Brett, Dave and very much so Erik.

    I don’t think it’s the not knowing that hurts him, it’s just the lack of time between the 2 seasons because he has no time to debrief, to calm down, get back to reality and evaluate and feel like the first game ended. I think it must be hard for him to even separate the 2 games and come up with a new game plan even if he wanted to because they’ve happened so close together, it probably feels like he’s just playing one really long game.

  2. I rooted for JT & Colby but both made stupid game changing mistakes at this point I’m not sure who I would like to see win, maybe Sandra cause she will stand up to Russell.

  3. Russell blew it last night putting Danielle against Parverti, he should had stuck with the two girls to the end, it was a good final 3.

  4. Sandra for the win. Glad she didn’t feel the need to share that she found the immunity idol with anyone.

    1. Clever! I think I know what you mean…. but I will keep it to myself.

      ….and I hope you are right! :grin:

  5. Russel will get to the final three. However, he will be lucky to receive one jury vote. Although he will have outwitted, outlasted, and outplayed everyone on the jury, he will also have pissed off, scrweed over, and antagonized them all too. Most of the Jury will be heros, and the villian members will have fallen to their misplaced trust in Russel. No one will vote for him.

    If Parvati is in the final three, I don’t see anyone but Danielle voting for her. All ther rest of the votes will go to whomever is the third party of the final three…whoever it is. The jury will not so much be voting for the winner as much as they will be voting against Rus and Parv

    I has spoken!!

    1. Yeah, his social game sucks. I don’t think he realizes that the people he pisses off and gets voted off, are the same ones who decides who gets the million dollars. What he did to Danielle, and the way he did it was wrong. He could never get her vote now. If Russell makes it to the finals…. I look forward to hearing the jury questions and comments. Could get heated. 8)

    2. Yes ,the man is finally seeing the light, hey even though i hate parvati, if she can manage to get that expletive ,out of the game my opinion will change. :roll: + :roll: = :roll:

  6. I was really enjoying the exchange between Russell and Rupert…Rupert was really telling him off…but alack and alas, the preview showed that Rupert and Colby ( who is completely useless ) joing forces with Russell, after Sandra turned Russell’s attempt to make nice with her. How fast Rupert’s perception of Russell has changed…..hey, its like Russell said in that exchange with Rupert…”its only a game…..”. LOL

  7. IN MY OPINION I THINK RUSSELL SHOULD HAVE WON BOTH TIMES. SURVIVOR IS JUST THAT. TO SEE WHO CAN SURVIVE LONGER THAN ANY ONE ELSE, NO MATTER WHAT. THE LAST 2 TIMES IT HAS BEEN A POPULARITY CONTEST NOT A CONTEST OF WITS OR SKILL. YOU HAVE TO ADMIT HE WAS THE BEST OR HE WOULDNT HAVE WON THE $100,00 FROM SPRINT. THERE MUST BE OTHERS THAT FEEL THIS WAY TOO
