This poll is just in reference to the historical track record of returning players always at least managing to make the endgame in some way, shape or form, whenever returnees are an option.

Time limited advantages (and I mean SHORT limits) are awesome. They should do more of them.

I feel like we got early characterization from Wendy to kinda establish her as a character before an early boot, whereas all we've gotten from Reem is "she's older". I stand by my "Wendy is the first boot" prediction.

I'm thinking the opposite because why establish someone who won't be around.

Not that it matters, cause of Extinction Island

Poor Reem. That was unfortunate. I hope she sticks it out for a while on IoE though. Emotionally terrorize everyone else out of the game.

I thought the premiere was solid enough. I'm sure Extinction Island will suck, but I enjoyed it being edited like a horror movie tonight.

My 10 minutes before premiere mostly blind winner pick was Victoria, who looked decent enough tonight for being on the winning tribe. Otherwise the editing seemed pretty balanced despite the 4 returning players.

I thought it was impressive how Reem managed to make that tribal all about her. I think in her mind she was standing up for herself, but unfortunately in that position you can't "win" by pushing back on everybody. Convincing them they are wrong for being annoyed by you is an impossible task and even if you succeed it's not going to take the target off you.

Even Natalie didn't make her tribals solely about her last season. I think the biggest difference in her first tribal was that it wasn't Natalie vs the tribe (even though they were all super annoyed by her), Jeremy was kind enough to make it Natalie vs Jeremy, so Natalie's way out was for everyone to get just as annoyed by Jeremy.

Reem didn't have a Jeremy though. She tried to make it Wentworth but it didn't take off too much.

Just reading across the internet and it really feels like people are just trying the find reasons not to like this season. Like, we had one episode and I'm seeing worst premiere ever, worst season ever. Like everyone is coming in with a preconceived notion and with that kind of attitude I think it is going to make everyone worse off.

depends on where across the internet you go!

I thought the premiere was okay. like no complaints about the episode itself, really, but nothing realllly standing out as much as I'd like. trying not to let the twists cloud my judgement, and the "reveal" at the end was pretty fun for now.

Out of all the premieres I've seen (Samoa, HvV, HHH, Ghost Island, and DvG) this was the least interesting, but it was still fine.

It probably hovers right around the bottom third-line as far as premiers go. It really could have stood to be an hour and a half. The intro and Reem's discovery of IOE felt rushed. And I still don't know everyone's name-to-face. I usually know that by the end of the premier whether or not I have read the bios.

But calling it the worst season ever solely based on a meh premier is dumb. Reminds me of a certain overreaction that took place on this board about a year ago. That turned out to be valid but was still a gross overreaction in the moment.

Anyway, one thing I forgot to mention last night was that the secret advantage would be knowing about IOE and if it spread through the cast that was the doing of that one person.

Survivor really needs to make their premieres a standard of 90 minutes. Because modern seasons just have too many twists and scenes that NEED to be shown. You HAD to have the IoE scene tacked on to the end of the episode. You HAD to really highlight the four returnees not just arriving, but how they impacted the start of the season. You HAD to show Ron finding the secret advantage. You HAD to show the full immunity challenge. They HAD to show fifteen minutes of commercials. That means you have to introduce fourteen new people in what...twenty-five minutes?

some of those I don't think are must-haves if they experiment with the editing, but even then I think 25 mins seems high.

we also missed cheesy jeff closing remarks like "now it's time to see if this vote helps your tribe be more united, or if you're still divided" or some crap ;(
