Sucks is having a ball with this one. Can't believe Skupin's 50 already though, damn.

I don't think any of the returnees have a good chance of winning. Penner will be gone early, Mike will essentially be a newbie since Australia was a completely different game 10+ years ago and he was booted pretty early, Russell will be blindsided the second the merge arrives.

Yeah, again I think Russell has the biggest chance just because players are more likely to respect him.
I was trying to find some fun threads on survivor sucks but there's no good "speculation, not spoilers" threads

Real spec starts up in the normal threads when the first episode airs. Before that you're stuck with avoiding the spoiler threads.

What's the fun in spoiler threads if you know nothing about most of the players?

Sucks started out as a community devoted specifically to finding spoilers, and the non-spoiler community sort of branched out from it.

I know, but I don't see why you would want to find spoilers. One of the best parts of Survivor is the anticipation of who's being booted.

Yeah, but the crazy kind of makes me excited. Looks like they got a fun cast. I don't see another Kim-type dominance season just based on the videos

Early Cast Assesment (after watching the videos)

Early Exits:
Denise--Reminds me of a more annoying Alicia
Dana--I don't think her personality meshes with the others in her tribe
Zane--same reasons as Dana
Katie--way too tan and there are better girls with actual physical ability.

My Top three picks (for a winner):
Malcolm: He's definitely thinking about how to win already
RC: At risk if she comes off as condescending, but sounds like a great strategist and one of the strongest women
Denise: I just really like her. So yeah.

WAY too many beauty queen types on this show, but I feel like there personalities are different and they are all on different tribes. So they could all end up leaving early. I do however think this one is going to be more about strategy than physical ability/early dominance

Implying extreme physical ability is a plus. Get early-juried as soon as a non-physical challenge is brought into play, please. I mean, it's happening more and more often since our precious water challenges have been stolen from us.

(On that note, water challenges are supposed to make a return these seasons since we're no longer in Samoa [: )

It's always been at least a little bit about strategy, the key is how many strategic players there are that can make it past the earlygame and pull it off.

Agreed. But the cast as a whole has a lot of people who seem to believe they are the best strategist.

I'm spoiled, so I'll avoid speculating upon the winner.

I do like this cast. I think it's a better group than One World. Probably not better than South Pacific, but still decent. I haven't read all the interviews yet, but Malcolm, Dawson, Artis, Denise all seem cool. Carter and Jeff and maybe Katie seem like the only weak choices. I'm annoyed that there are returnees, but at least these choices are better than RI/SP and the 3 tribe game should help.

The only entertaining people on South Pacific were Coach, Sophie, Keith, Jim and Cochran. This cast looks decent, and only Penner has any real advantage/disadvantage as far as returnees go.

Yeah I know some of the people who make it far but not the winner or the top 3 (and i'd like to keep it that way). I just was doing so much hardcore speculation (I love doing that) that I eventually saw some spoilers I didn't want to see.

I like Dawson but all that sass probs won't make it far unfortunately

Yeah, probably a good idea to avoid most online discussion of Survivor at this point if you don't want to be spoiled. Basically the spoilers know everyone that makes the merge as well as the boot order from F7 on.

One good thing to watch is the EW interviews with Dalton Ross because for some reason the contestants are much more natural there than in the interviews on the CBS website. Watching those I can see it's a pretty great cast - given the last couple seasons, I think I'd go Nicaragua > Philippines > SP > OW > RI.

Been tracking survivor twitter feeds.

Tiny speculation based on the posts:
Lots of religion fights b/w Mike, Pete, and Malcolm
Also some RC-Abi posts scream rivalry. You can actually figure that out just from pictures, though.
Abi loves herself way too much

Bigger spoiler (but not really)
The photos make it look like Blue loses in the challenge. Not really a spoiler, more of just hardcore speculation.

Why are they billing Russel as 'The Original Survivor'?
