First, if you don’t want to know who wins “Survivor: Cook Islands,” this isn’t the place for you. There WILL be spoilers. Go watch “Survivor: The Amazon” instead.
Second, speaking of “Survivor: The Amazon,” Mr. Rob Cesternino is very generously offering his “Survivor: The Amazon – Unauthorized DVD Commentary” at an exclusive DISCOUNTED RATE for Summer Book Club members.
Third, our friends at True Dork Times are once again getting in on the fun with stats, awards, and more.
And finally, this whole Book Club thing is kind of a work in progress. If you have ideas on how to improve the proceedings, please let me know.
My Big Question: Parvati Shallow, “Boston” Rob Mariano, Russell Hantz, Richard Hatch, Sandra Diaz-Twine, Ozzy Lusth, Cirie Fields, Tom Westman, Amanda Kimmel, Rob Cesternino, and Ethan Zohn.
That’s the full roster of“Survivor” Hall of Famers. All eleven have appeared on the show more than once.
Whenever the topic of worthy one-timers comes up, Cook Islands champ (spoiler alert!) Yul Kwon is always a popular pick. However, many seem to think his (spoiler alert!) over-powered immunity idol should count against him. With this re-watch, I hope to get to the bottom of that mystery.
And with that, let’s get started…
Glad Sundra’s gaping knee wound was in the pre-HD days.
Letting Candice and Penner choose the camp is a perfect, rational solution. Yul’s the king of the smarties.
I wouldn’t touch a drop of alcohol during the game. Just seems like trouble.
Adam groping Parvati?! Is this the first case of in-game polygamy?
As a “Survivor” nerd, nothing gets me quite as excited as watching two super smart players like Yul and Penner hunker down and talk some serious strategy.
As far as the mega-powered idol goes, flushing it basically means sacrificing one of your players. The former Rarorans won’t keep their number advantage if they do it.
I feel like Parvati has done the stand-on-the-pole immunity challenge a billion times.
Yul tells Penner that he wants to take him to the end because Penner has enemies. Simple, effective. I’m loving Yul.
Whoa! Why don’t I remember Candice and Adam full-on making out?
How do you feel about people hitting the jury before the merge?
Is it fair that someone as big as Nate should have footholds the same size as someone as small as Parvati?
Penner can’t win at this point. Was there anything else he could’ve done? If he’d voted for Yul, that would’ve flushed the idol and Nate would’ve been gone.
