Survivor- Redemption Island

February 16th, 2011

To know me is to know that I am a die-hard fan of the reality TV show Survivor. I’ve been watching since the first season when Richard Hatch took away the cool million prize for being the sole survivor (which later he got in trouble with the IRS for due to tax evasion). I always hate to see a season end, but start counting down for the new season to begin.

Tonight IS that night. Redemption Island- which according to Jeff Probst is going to be one of the best seasons ever. It ranks within his top five, so I’m highly curious and excited at the same time.

This season will bring back two old favorites, Boston Rob and Russell. In early sesasons I really couldn’t stand Rob, but during the Heros -vs- Villians season, I actually grew to like him a LOT. As far as Russell is concerned- he’s one that I believe we all love to hate. The first season that he was on the show, I couldn’t stand him, but I thought he played the game pretty well. After all- I don’t know anyone else who has ever found all the hidden immunity idols with no clues. Since then, my opinion of him has only changed for the worst and I hope to see something different in him tonight, although it’s highly doubtful. Time will tell.

While I was home for the holidays- I also had the opportunity to meet and spend time with one of the winners of Survivor. It was actually one of my favorite players EVER, so it was great to spend some time in a casual setting chatting and learning more about my favorite game. Wondering who it is? I’ll share that in the days to come. Meeting this person was on my ‘bucket list’ so it was awesome to be able to scratch that off. I’ve even invited them to spend some time with us if they come to our part of the country and who knows, maybe they’ll take us up on it.

More on all that later- Don’t forget that Survivor is on CBS at a new day (Wednesday instead of Thursday). Look forward to talking about it tomorrow or in the days to come as the season begins to unfold. Can you tell I’m excited?

    Hi Wizzy

    Just saying hello. I popped into my own blog quite by accident and decided to drop a few lines here and there. Hope all is well.

    Tell us! No fair!! I would not call myself a diehard fan. It just all depends if I watch it the first two nights and it captures my attentions. I do like Boston Rob. I love to hear him talk. But Russell is just so evil to me. Enjoy watching your show. Love, Me!
