TBD on Ning

Like last season’s returning pair of Boston Rob Mariano and Russell Hantz, Coach and Ozzy will each end up on different teams, this time after breaking an egg filled with the paint color of one of the tribes. Unlike Rob and Russell, however, there is no built-in rivalry between the pair. But host Jeff Probst says the two do have a natural connection. “What they share together is their social games suck,” says Probst. “Coach? He blew it in Heroes vs. Villains. He blew it seven different ways. And Ozzy got voted out with an idol in his hand! If that doesn’t speak to how bad you are in the social part of this game. So we looked at it and said here are two guys that do have a redemption story. Yes, you’ve played. Yes, you’re popular, but you don’t know what you’re doing in this game.”

Make sense? Hmm....

Then why have them at all? Bringing back two people with bad social games is no justification at all. At the most, that kind of thinking could work for an all-star season, where you have a tribe of challenge pros versus those with good social games, or a tribe of over-the-top characters versus everyday people. But it just makes no real sense.
- Ozzy hasn't really learned how to play. He instantly aligned himself with the hot girlson his tribe. Wasn't that his downfall before when Pavarti b*tchslapped him with an Immunity Idol?
- How was Dawn (the crying mom) not even considered for elimination? I figured she was a gimme.
- Sad to see Semhar leave. She had a butterface, but her boobs were real and they were fantastic.
- I was happy to see Nerdlinger stay. I think real fans of this show would rather see a scrawny geek that wholeheartedly loves the show play, rather than some airhead pretty recruit from an L.A. Bar.
- Coach Episode 1 seemed very likeable. I felt bad that his tribe ignored him after the "hero" challenge. He was humbled early. I am glad Edna was the bigger person.
- Christine is gone first from her tribe. Too aggressive looking for the Immunity Idol in the first few minutes of camp life.
- For that matter, Stacy, the mortician didn't seem too friendly.
- Creepy Brandon is in for a rude awakening. I agree he should wait to reveal he is Russell's nephew once people get to know him, but c'mon! No way in heck is he going to be able to keep his shirt on the entire season on a tropical island. By lying to his castaway roomies, they will be thinking he is ultra-sneaky and a liar from the get- go. They aren't stupid. They will instantly recognize the Hantz stamp. Digging his own grave. And that is not even considering his holier-than-thou religous beliefs.

Soooo happy Survivor is back! Hopefully this season will be filled with plenty of twist, turns and backstabbery, unlike last season when Mariano led the bleating lambs to the slaugther.
Brandon came off as really creepy. He won't win but I loved Cochran. Hope he will be around for a while. Its about time that Woody Allen's doppleganger was on the show. At times he reminded me of Kenny the gamer (except Kenny wasn't so insecure.) But for a student of the game, he made a lot of basic mistakes. I was impressed with Mikayla suprisingly, Elyse, Edna and Papa Bear. Ozzy wasn't as arrogant as usual but still thinks with the wrong head. But he does have beautiful hair!!! LOL!
Hi gang! Sorry for not being on line as of late, but with the storms, rain, etc., it's been a real blast (NOT!)

So, what a vibe from this last episode....Brandon (ugh) needs to go, soon. That’s mostly because it is beyond disturbing that Brandon blames Mikalya for his attraction to her, and acts as if it’s her fault he might somehow cheat on his wife. Ignoring his arrogant assumption that Mikayla would actually even entertain the idea of any kind of relationship, that’s not just creepy, that’s sick, the kind of argument abusers and assaulters and others use to justify their behavior. Brandon did take responsibility for some unknown action in the past (“I’ve made bad decisions in the past”) but also suggested that the mere presence of women in his life was dangerous (“being a married man, I have to stay away from that kind of stuff”; “I don’t feel comfortable around her”), and acted as if women were the only obstacles to his success (“ain’t no chick getting in the way”). It seems like this is his general theory of women, that they are at fault, but I have no idea where he could have gotten such antiquated ideas about women. But it's real creepy to witness how his mind works...and why.

And what can I say about Coach? I'm actually impressed!
