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 hop out of the nest and get started…
Wow, I really don’t remember Ozzy being this crabby. There’s got to be something to seeing how you were portrayed in your season, then going back and doing a better job. We’ve seen Boston Rob, Ozzy, and Coach do it. James…not so much….
Probst in a yellow shirt! I can see why that didn’t catch on.
Look at that water…
Fun Fact: The press does an unofficial ranking of all of the past locations during the media junkets. Everyone who visited the Cook Islands agrees that it was the best.
Ozzy caught a billion fish. This might be the first season where people gained weight.
Getting back into the Parvati discussion from last week; I think it’s important to note that it might be more accurate to say she’s cool with everyone rather than she flirts with everyone. When someone like RC flirts with you there’s more of a sexual connotation. I don’t see that from Parv. However, I could see where someone could read it that way.
Aww…poor boobie. He’s lucky they’re full on fish or they would’ve devoured him.
How traumatizing must it have been for that bird? Some crazed dude knocks your only offspring out of a tree. Then they put it back and leave.
I miss the challenges that pretend to deal with survival or emergency techniques.
Rookie mistake by Stephannie outing herself as a liability.
Probst in a white shirt! Now there’s a look I can support.
C’mon, Parvati. You don’t trust everyone in the tribe and saying you do makes them not trust you.
I don’t have a problem getting rid of a challenge threat like JP this early in the game. Especially with a tribe that seems to be as stacked as Raro.
Was it too soon for the Raro tribe to start targeting challenge assets?
Is Ozzy the greatest challenge competitor ever? If not, who? Boston Rob? Terry?
Should Yul not be allowed to come up with nicknames? (Poseidon?!)
Which flavor of Probst is your favorite?
