I didn't think I would be cool with the changes of the shorter seasons, but I have to admit: I kind of like the pacing of these last two seasons. I think it forces players to rely less on alliances and more on themselves, which is really what Survivor should ultimately be about.
But the players do deserve better than Applebee's.
I am LOVING this season of Survivor. The game play has been absolutely incredible, even with all the BS twists.
I feel like Omar is the clear front runner, I don't even know who else would win now that Drea and Hai are gone, but I am curious who other people think might have a shot?
Laughing at this season’s merge meal, heavily, heavily sponsored by Applebee’s. (Can you imagine? A dozen days hungry, and you get… Applebee’s.)
What would be your dream sponsored merge meal? For me, Chili’s, all the way. 🌶
Say what you will about the short season, Do or Die, and Applebee's, but this season of Survivor boasts the best cast since David vs. Goliath.
Not only are we about to have perhaps the strongest top five EVER (if Romeo goes home, that is), but they all are playing hard, and with such positivity. Both Hai and Drea's eliminations were some of the most fun the show has ever produced, and, even though I was bummed to see them both go (they were two of my favorites), it is a testament to the rest of the cast that they're ACTUALLY taking out real threats. I'm typically so frustrated every season watching a clear favorite sail to the end with little friction, but everyone this season is playing a super strong individual game.
Now, the hard part is trying to figure out who should come back in a future season. Usually there's only one or two a season that really could be a contender for a return, but I would love to see any of the final seven again. Give them all the seasons, and all the Chili's, because they've earned better than Applebee's!
