Nightmare on Samoa Island!

Well, well, well, it looks like the VooDoo Queen will start her chants tonight. Poor Rob, from the previews it looks like he drank some date rape drug. He’s donw for a 9 count and gonna be weary for awhile. Russell needs to start looking for the HII because there should be a clue to where it is tonight.

Where is you favorite and why don’t you think they weren’t rated higher?



Wow, 2 hours of non-stop yawning! IMHO!!!


My personal thoughts on the first night of Survivor 20 Heroes vs. Villains was more like a high school reunion and everyone is trying to impress everyone else, except Sugar who for some reason was totally out of her element. After basically being ignored by everyone especially Colby, she just wasn’t all there. Maybe she needed to go to exile island and stay out of the way of the crowd. (No there isn’t an exile island on Samoa). I believe that there were more first day alliances made in the history of Survivor, and I believe in the next few weeks that there will be more broken alliances once the positioning begins. The rivalry between the tribes was set into motion with the first challenge. Complete and utter chaotic violence that almost sent 2 people home. I think the challenges should be physical but not violent. Stress more puzzle solving with a physical challenge in every competition before we get into a downright war with these challenges that allow contact.  If that first challenge was an NFL game there would have been penalties for Holding, Roughing the QB, Unsportsmanlike contact ( removing an opposing players clothes), and probably a few more we never saw on camera.

I was actually bored for most of the 2 hour special episode. I know they spent time letting viewers getting used to who the characters are, but pleaseeeeeeeeee, show some more action around the camps, what the hell is everyone up to. I know Russell had to be looking for the HII, so lets see him searching. Show Rob more with his pissed off attitude of no one wanting to help build the camp. C’mon man, lets get some bullshit going out there.  I know a lot of you won’t agree with me, BUT, i want some action. Hell the Village People with no flint started a fire easier the Hoho’s with flint.

OK, some info from the snake pit.  I probably won’t post daily this season since we only have a show 1 day a week. However if I get some special news or I just get an itch i’ll put something up. Thats all for now, before I really tell you how I feel about the Village People and the Hoho’s.

39 days of fun and frolic …..

From August 9th until September 16th the cast-a-ways contested the Heroes vs. Villians and filmed it for our entertainment. Beginning in February we get to watch the Good, the Bad and the Ugly!

‘Survivor: Heroes Vs. Villains': Candice says that ‘being a hero is kinda cheesy’


Of course when she said that to me in Samoa right before filming on Heroes Vs. Villains, Candice Woodcock was pretty sure she was going to be on the Villains tribe. And with good reason: Candice is most famous for mutinying off her own tribe in the Cook Islands. Probst’s defense for making Candice a hero (which can be seen in the video below) is that Candice’s mutiny maneuver was a heroic move to get back on a team with the people she loved. Okay, but that runs completely contrary to the way Cook Islands was edited and presented, when Yul, Ozzy, Becky, and Sundra were the abandoned underdogs who had to overcome tremendous odds after being left for dead by Candice and Jonathan Penner. In fact, Cook Islands was an underwhelming season until we finally had people to root for and against, and make no mistake, back then Candice was being presented squarely in the “against” camp. But here she is a hero? Doesn’t make sense, but there you have it. [ an exclusive on location video ]
