……… We’re so glad you could attend Come inside! Come inside!
Well folks, it’s not Brain Salad Surgery but another season of Survivor.
Young vs. Old, can some over 50 people take advantage of some young guns that have misconceptions of what old people are about?
On the Showtime series “Bullshit” with Penn and Teller, young people thought older people smelled bad, BULLSHIT. They both did, young and old.
Old folks have experience and are better judges on how to pace yourself. Young guns are super energetic but make stupid mistakes because they can be impatient.
TV Guide is calling this season “Outwit, Outplay, Outlive”! Ok, whose going to die? No one or we would have heard about it by now. Lets see, we have a burly Massachusetts fisherman, a dog trainer, a former Yahoo! executive, a former college/NFL football coach and that’s just the Espada tribe(oldies but goodies). The young guns will be the La Flor tribe.
Probst was quoted as saying “We actually have a tribe that’s strong enough that they can compete and colorful enough that the audience will root for them”.
The Espada range in age from 41 to 67.
The violence in the challenges will be toned down and some new games are in store for the cast-a-ways.
A new twist this year is the Medallion of Power. The tribe that has it will have a distinct edge in that immunity challenge. However, after using it, the option of power is given to the other tribe to use it in the next challenge, hmmmmmmmm.
La Flor will sport an ex-Miami Dolphins cheerleader, 27 year old paddle board company owner, 30 year old pest control company owner.
An early decision about the Medallion of power by the La Flor tribe tends to make them look cocky!
Probst, “In most cases on Survivor, I would still say that the youth probably have an advantage, but with this group, I think the older people do”!
So, on September 15th at 8pm/7cent. CBS will air “Survivor:Nicaragua”.
