Eric is still the biggest idiot in the history of Survivor.
May 11, 2008, 1:09 p.m. CST
And so are people who say first.Your obviously first. Eric shoudlve and couldve won this thing. Cant wait to see his remarks at the reunion show after.
May 11, 2008, 1:33 p.m. CST
I agree!! I would've been really pissed at Eric for being so utterly and completely stupid for giving Natalie the Immunity Necklace, if I hadn't been so busy laughing at the stupidity at the same time. Who else loathes Natalie as much as I do? Can't stand the bitch. And she is a bitch!!!! I have to admit, this particular season has been VERY entertaining!! I really can't believe how easily the men were played by the women this year. Every single one of them fell for the flirtatious moves of the women, and not one of them saw through it until it was too late. Just goes to show how stupid men can be sometimes. Far too often we think with our small heads, and not with our big ones. My guess is it will never change...
May 11, 2008, 1:40 p.m. CST
After the novelty of the first season wore off there was nothing of interest left for me. I could have seen it coasting on fumes for a couple of more seasons but 8!?

He's just a man who made the mistake of believing what a bunch of women were saying. Until somebody else gets evicted while holding two immunity idols, James is the Survivor King of Dumb.
May 11, 2008, 2:19 p.m. CST
Was pretty stupid but his logic for doing it was sort of understable. If he got to the final 2 there is no way he beats out any of the girls with all the other girls in the jury so whats the difference when he got kicked out other then a few thousand dollars. He had to know they were lying to him in the back of his mind but he took a risk to try and win a million dollars and not just be 2nd. Natalie is a bitch but she is pretty damn hot as is both Parvarti and Amanda.

...because the show always seems to reward mediocrity. That is, the weakest ALWAYS seem to band together against those who are skilled at challenges. They can't succeed with the best, so they punish them for it by essentially saying "since you are good, and since I suck, I'm going to vote against you". And I'm sure the producers have NO IDEA that's what they're doing when they make cast selections.

Yup. 16 seasons. Really, it's not the novelty of the first season that made it work. It was the cast, which Survivor seasons live and die on. It shouldn't really matter how long it's on as long as the people are interesting and the games are cool.

Natalie has terrible fake tits & is incredibly annoying. As long as she doesn't win I'll be marginally satisfied with this season.
May 11, 2008, 4:31 p.m. CST
I watched the end of the first season and the entire second season with tbe big Momma's Boy from Texas. I found it was sort of like a soap opera. Lots and lots of set up - very little actually happening.
May 11, 2008, 5:23 p.m. CST
dunno if i've been watching the same season as you, but the "non-alienation" vote DEFINITELY goes to Amanda. Parvati pissed off Ozzy (read his exiting Buddytv.com interview) and James ("you gotta eat the apple"), arguably two of the biggest voices on the jury. She might get 1 or 2 gameplay votes, ditto for Cirie. But if Amanda makes the final 3, and it comes down to a "who pissed me off the least vote", she's got it in the bag, which I believe is likely.
May 11, 2008, 5:34 p.m. CST
will go before Cirie. Amanda's name has come up time and again during the past few episodes as the one most everyone thinks they can not beat. And they have a point. She was not part of the Ozzy blindside so will most likely get his & James' votes. Natalie would most likely not get votes from either Eric or Jason as she was the one who out and out lied to them, so those votes would be available to Amanda. And we know Eliza doesn't like Parvati, so Amanda would have a shot at her vote too.. <p>Correct me if my math is wrong, but if the final vote is 3 people, there will be 7 jury members. One can win with only 3 votes.
May 11, 2008, 5:54 p.m. CST
How an that fat pig be in the final four? Besides the fact that she never tries to win anything- she deserves NOTHING

Even thought I actually have bet on Amanda. Circe's played the game the best, its going to be EPIC to see her manipulate the rest against each other.
May 11, 2008, 7:25 p.m. CST
i wish someone would let me program a network, i would use the running man as my model for reality tv, and have people really losing limbs and dying...think of the ratings boost if of instead of just voting off someone from american idol, you were voting for who simon would shoot next....
May 11, 2008, 7:27 p.m. CST
honestly i hope amanda wins...she seems to have learned the most since her last survivor appearance...more game, less flip-flopping.....if james had not had to be evacuated , i think he really had a good shot at winning....he wasnt dumb at all and i think he too improved his game from his last appearance....especially by keepin his opinions over what the lazy ones go...instead of bitching to them he did the smart thing and wallked away.....damn the injuries !!

I have pretty much watched this entire season, however I think I will skip the 2 hour finale. I do not have a favorite since ERIK got voted out. I may watch the 1 hour reunion show, but I am skipping the first 2 hours. There is quite a bit of chatter on IMDB saying that NATALIE looks like THE GRINCH WHO STOLE CHRISTMAS. The biggest debate is whether she looks more like JIM CAREY's GRINCH or The CARTOON GRINCH version.
May 11, 2008, 7:50 p.m. CST
Believe it or not this is up to season 16 (!) or so. Have to admit I have seen most of the seasons, it is a form of living vicariously for some of us I guess.
May 11, 2008, 7:59 p.m. CST
makes no sense if u watched the whole season to skip the 2hr finale and just watch the reunion....kinda a waste of time if ur not gonna watch the final episode....kinda like watching a 3 hr movie and walking out in the last 15 min and coming back for the end credits...dumb right ?
May 11, 2008, 9:07 p.m. CST
did not see that coming!
May 11, 2008, 9:14 p.m. CST
May 11, 2008, 9:18 p.m. CST
as a profession. I've never seen someone more inept in front of a jury. She just dominated her way into back to back final twos and couldn't close the deal in either ? Ridiculous. And Parv is a straight up bitch, so Amanda should have had no problem this season. What a tool. On the other hand, watching that crotch shot of Parv at the challenge made me wonder ... do they give the survivors razors out there in the jungle, because Parv's beav was smooth as a baby's bottom, judging from her low rider bikini bottoms.
May 11, 2008, 9:20 p.m. CST
don't forget he got voted out either sixth or fifth. He basically had three chances to use two idols. He could have used one, and then had two chances to win a single individual immunity, and just cruised to the final four. So I agree - James is still the ultimate idiot.
May 11, 2008, 9:23 p.m. CST
Amanda's answer to Cirie demonstrates why she will never win a jury vote. All she had to say was, "Cirie, you played a great game and you're an excellent speaker, so I thought I would have a more difficult time beating you than Parvati." Instead she stammers out some bullshit about respecting her game. Idiot.
May 11, 2008, 9:40 p.m. CST
1) Not playing any kind of strategy in the game, just going along with somebody else (Ozzy,Parv)2) Not really making friends with many people, made it hard for her at jury time as she had few friend votes 3) Not doing any dirty work, always getting Parv or Cirie, or Ozzy to do it for her. In early seasons the nice quiet people skewed towards winning, but lately alot of votes are going towards game masterminds. 4) Not recognizing that Parv allied with her from the very start because she knew it would end similar to how it ended in China.
May 11, 2008, 10:13 p.m. CST
Skinny as shit, dirty, bitten and bruised girls with no make-up in HD? No thanks.
May 11, 2008, 10:13 p.m. CST
...but Amanda's responses to the Jury were horrid. I'm still completely surprised Amanda couldn't get enough votes to win it, because Parv really is a tool. Amanda's answers hurt her more than I thought they would. The only thing I AM glad about was that bitch Natalie got voted out when she did. Thank God for that!!! I did feel a bit sad for Cirie. In the end she played a VERY good game, but she also couldn't close the deal. Why Parv though? I mean really jury? Parv? Damn shame, she's kind of a bitch as well.
May 11, 2008, 10:33 p.m. CST
by Red Dawn Don
Although "Parv over Amanda" does sound kinda hot, if you get my drift. Anyhow, 90% of the viewers watching felt that AMANDA had it locked down. She was way less the BITCH than Parvoti or Cirie. I still can not get over that SURVIVOR season when the DEAF girl voted for one of her TORMENTORS. I'll carry that TRAVESTY to the grave. Oh Slkboxrman, the REUNION show is not like the END CREDITS. It is when the WINNER is announced, and the few good cast-members that I liked are back for Q&A. So your example is poor.
May 11, 2008, 10:48 p.m. CST
Amanda lost. Like in China, Amanda did a piss-poor job of expressing herself. She didn't learn from last time and didn't seem to put any thought into how she would answer the questions. <p>She should have kept reminding them how she won the final 2 immunities (something every jury member can respect), and how she was 100% loyal to her original alliance - how she was not part of the Ozzy blindside, would have stayed loyal to James (true or not she should have said it) if he hadn't been forced out, and only when she had no other choice did she write down the name of an alliance member. And then reminded the Jury that that wasn't the case with Parvati.<p>We know Ozzy & Erik voted for Amanda. Anyone know who the 3rd vote was from? I was surprised that James was pissed with her; don't get that. I figured he would never even consider voting for Parvati seeing as how she broke up his alliance. <p>One more thing - Erik is a whiney bitch. "Boohoo, Amanda hurt my feelings because she called me out and confronted me when I decided to turn against her and vote her out." Dude, be a man and get over it and just be thankful for the experience of getting to watch Amanda and Ami shower together.
May 11, 2008, 10:56 p.m. CST
I'll give you Alexis because it was Amanda's idol that forced her from the game. But there's another instance where Amanda blew it with the jury. She failed to mention that Parvati was in on it and actually helped her do it. So while Amanda did what she needed to do to keep herself in the game (costing Alexis her place in it), Parvati, who was in no danger of going home then, helped Amanda get rid of Alexis. Parvati once again turning on her alliance.<p>As for Eric & Natalie, Amanda didn't do anything that Parvati didn't do. If they got screwed by Amanda it must have been a gang-bang because Parvati did it too.
May 11, 2008, 11:13 p.m. CST
This is what happens when you put people on the jury who are morons.

Apparently her mind is as bizarre as her looks.
May 11, 2008, 11:21 p.m. CST
should have won simply for playing that immunity idol. Unlike the Ozzy blindside, where the majority turned against him and left key people out of the plan; or the Eric & Jason blindsides where they were flat-out lied to and manipulated, Amanda did everything she could to get either Eric or Cirie to vote with her instead of against her. It was her only hope and she played it beautifully. Sure she bent the truth a bit, and did some play-acting, but she didn't force anyone to vote for her so she could use it. All she did was save her skin. And if Alexis held a grudge for that then all I can say is "what a bitch!".<p>This brings up another failure in the long list of things Amanda did not bring up at the final tribal council. When confronted by Cirie, she should have reminded her that, when it came down to 3 fans and 3 favourites, Amanda pleaded with Cirie to vote with her & Parvati. Cirie declined in favour of not risking her own neck. Amanda should have told her that when the chips were down, Parvati was willing to stick to their alliance and stand by her but Cirie was not. And that was why she chose Parvati instead of her for the final 2. But instead the babbled something about respecting gameplay.
May 11, 2008, 11:31 p.m. CST
Parvati was the one who broke that alliance with James. He was pissed because she helped vote out Ozzy. Amanda knew nothing about it. I do remember someone at the next tribal council outing Parvati as being behind the plan. I can't think at the moment who that was but I don't think it was Amanda. Actually, I think it was James who said it (confirming Ozzy's suspicions). <p>Eric, like Amanda, was not included in the Ozzy blindside. What broke up the Ozzy/Eric alliance was Ozzy getting voted out.
May 12, 2008, midnight CST
by Flim Springfield
She's gone into the final with a really good chance of winning and blown it twice. Once, okay, but she should have learned her lesson and done better the second time. Instead, I think she did WORSE.
May 12, 2008, 12:27 a.m. CST
If you actually watch this drivel, you don't deserve your eyes and I doubt sincerely the existence of your eternal soul.
May 12, 2008, 12:31 a.m. CST
Natalie was definitely hitting on Parvati- I vote for an all female Survivor!
May 12, 2008, 1:22 a.m. CST
They both sucked in front of the jury, but Amanda in front of Cirie was such a no-brainer that she really did want to lose much more than Parv did. Parv was insulting and obnoxious, but at least she knew what to say to Cirie
May 12, 2008, 1:38 a.m. CST
Amanda speaks she turns into a whiny-ass little cry-baby! "Oh this vote was so hard." SHUT UP!!
May 12, 2008, 1:47 a.m. CST
big tom should get some votes as dumbest survivor ever too. At least James and Erik have big hearts. And "Parv" Shallow winning? the last name kinda speaks for itself. What a crock.
May 12, 2008, 1:47 a.m. CST
what the FUCK was natalie talking about? was she asking if parvati would have sex with her on national TV??? what a moronic idiot that girl was. nothing she said ever made any sense. and on top of that, she acted as if she was a genius pulling all the strings. The girl was a complete moron. and amanda is a fucking joke. when someone asks you a question from the jury who decides whether you're getting a million dollars, you don't attack them.
May 12, 2008, 2:35 a.m. CST
And Ozzy somehow found a way to be the biggest star in a season finale that he wasn't even in. give him props. he's good TV.

by Pops Freshemeyer
Maybe next up he'll get an offer to wrestle for the WWE, where he can face Undertaker in a Buried Alive match at Wrestlemania next year. <p> <p> And I'm glad Parvati won. Great job of losing the game by Amanda. Oh yeah, I can only hope one day we'll see Eliza on Court TV. Haha.

May 12, 2008, 5:01 a.m. CST
And I like her fake boobs and long slim legs...Parvati and Amanda were also hot. I am glad one of them won though surprised it wasn't Amanda. I am glad cirie lost , shes a great player but does nothing in the camp or the challanges.
May 12, 2008, 5:32 a.m. CST
Did he say that at the re-union? Because what he was saying at tribal to Amanda was basically "Amanda you know you my girl and I am definitely voting for you to win the million, Parvati doesnt stand a chance in hell of getting my vote" So the three votes I figured were obviously Erik, James, Ozzie. And I starting thinking... would Amanda have beaten Cirie? I dunno... you know something I honestly don't know. So enough with this "she lost it for herself" nonsense, how many times has the Jury voted differently then what everyone thought they were going to do?
May 12, 2008, 5:35 a.m. CST
"How will you be an inspiration to girls" Please... what BS. Ozzie brought up one huge point why Parv would be the worst inspiration in the history of the female sex. And the other issue - the flirting- is the other. Yea I just tease people for sex to get what I want... So ok totally smacking the womans movement in the face and is an inspiration to girls? Use lies and sex to get your way, not your mind? Backstab your friends? Ok Amanda, nice showing you don't give a crap about your cause.
May 12, 2008, 5:37 a.m. CST
If anything she may have been one of the most strategic as well as strongest players in the game this time around... I think she played a totally different game this year. She should have won.
May 12, 2008, 5:40 a.m. CST
Why don't you stop coming to message boards of shows you don't watch and maybe listen to all the reviews of both critics and plain old TV viewers who say this is the best season outside of the first.... Great TV is great TV, and Survivor, even in its 16th season, is still better then most of the crap out their. This season was the best I have ever seen. (I started watched from 2nd season on, then skipped a few in the middle there).
May 12, 2008, 6:10 a.m. CST
by Karl Childers
should take off soon along with her clothes. I'm wondering if she might be bi? I noticed her grabbing Parvarti's ass at one point before she got voted off.
May 12, 2008, 6:11 a.m. CST
but strangely, the thought of her chowing down between Parvarti's thighs makes her about 1000x hotter.
May 12, 2008, 6:56 a.m. CST
Can't believe that Amanda did not win. Jeff should have asked that question first on reunion. I want to see why Pav won. Glad it was not Cirie at least. I can't believe all the man hating at the last few ep's. Eric will have trust issues for the rest of life after this one. Natalie should have worked on getting men with her for her to win but I guess she had the hots for Pav and was blindsided for that.
May 12, 2008, 8:02 a.m. CST
Alexis and Natalie went with Parve for sure, no way they werent. Ozzie and James were for sure going with Amanda, no way they weren't. Which leaves 4 more votes. Eric voted for Amanda because he was closer to her. The other 3 I assume voted for Parvati because of one thing and one thing only, her scheme to get rid of Ozzie. They consider that the biggest backstabbing and smartest scheme... even though Amanda was more strategic and stronger and more deserving overall, that one thing is what won it for her. Also I mean come on... some people vote for the person who they were at odds with the whole show not because they like them but because they consider them "the nemesis" and hey if they didn't win, their "nemesis" should - Which is why Eliza voted Parvati. I also think its BS Eliza didn't already know who she was voting for... that confusion and 20 minutes with pen in hand was BS. She knew she was voting for Parvati and told her closest friend she was.. and they discussed it and that closest friend went alogn with her. Thats how she got Jasons vote. Cirie voted more for backstabbing scheming as opposed to open strategy, because thats the type of person she was too.
May 12, 2008, 8:04 a.m. CST
And Natalie isn't hot, but for some reason she thinks she is the hottest girl in existance. Look at all her poses, she purses her lips and does a "f*ck me" stare.
May 12, 2008, 8:40 a.m. CST
she had some serious mental problems. parvati easily the hottest.
May 12, 2008, 8:46 a.m. CST
I mean damn, Amanda is like a goddess. Anyone else think that half the time they look better on the island then on the reunion show... especially the ones who make it close to end? Amanda & Parv looked alot hotter on island, and in the past seasons I noticed it too.. and I know exactly why. Its because they try to make up for the zero makeup on the island by putting on too much, doing too much to their hair, just going all out like its the prom. Both are naturally pretty, no need to force it.
May 12, 2008, 9:45 a.m. CST
...and just kept saying "I won immunity when it mattered." No way in hell Parvati deserved to win, but smiling and fluttering your eyelashes apparently scores more points with the jury than looking remorseful. <p>That being said, I fully expect Amanda and Ozzy to spawn the ultimate SURVIVOR superbeing that will dominate SURVIVOR: THE MOON in 2028.</p>
May 12, 2008, 9:55 a.m. CST
by Abominable Snowcone
and if you saw her Playboy spread, you would too. And YouIgnorant is right...Parv is cute, but Amanda is cuter
May 12, 2008, 10:12 a.m. CST
their offspring will certainly lose at final council, or possibly get voted out while holding 10 immunity idols.
May 12, 2008, 10:27 a.m. CST
Though still think Amanda may be the hottest survivor ever, especially this season (during thursdays challenge, when she had her shirt tied right under her breasts... wow she looked good) Cutest survivor, Elizabeth Hasselback (going by how she looked on the season she was on of course, not currently) but hottest Amanda. Ami though, yea always found her hot.
May 12, 2008, 10:29 a.m. CST
with Amanda. I rewatched his bit again this morning and see that he does tell Amanda she has it in the bag. Maybe there was leftover animosity towards her in the air after Eric's diatribe against her. Or maybe there had been a reaction shot of James at some point that made me think he was upset with her.<p>I think one of the few women who looked better at the reunion than in the game was Courtney The Stick. But that's because she's one of those women who looks better fully clothed.<p>Funny how things change. Remember past season's final tribal councils where jury members blasted the final 2 for "lack of integrity", flip-flopping, and being manipulative? Parvati did all those things, few seemed to care, and won a million bucks. Remember back in the day when "alliance" was a dirty word and people in the final 2 had to defend themselves against even the possibility they had been in one?
May 12, 2008, 11 a.m. CST
Ozzy + Amanda = Ozymandias? Does that mean Fairplay will spawn The Comedian? Will the Probst/Berry baby become Dr. Manhattan?
May 12, 2008, 11:21 a.m. CST
That girl went from hot to super hot lol. Its funny... I think I thought she was hotter then Amanda last year, but now think this years Amanda is hotter then courtney. Anyway, I wanted Amanda to win, but I don't think it matters... pretty sure she will argue she got the better deal as far as her future is concerned.
May 12, 2008, 12:56 p.m. CST
before she became famous. They are much more discerning (or is it "picky"?) when it comes to using unknowns than when they shoot celebrities. Of course the famous people get a lot more money. Either way, where is their "Girls of Survivor" edition? But please, be somewhat selective. No one wants to see Denise the Lunch Lady in the all together.<p>Speaking of Denise, did Ozzy poke fun at her last night when he said he was having trouble at work because he is too recognizable and was relegated to cleaning toilets? I did like his comment to Probst: "Jeff, you know what these Survivor women are like".
May 12, 2008, 1:25 p.m. CST
RIGHT ON! My thoughts EXACTLY!!
just bring on the naked alexis-ness...
May 12, 2008, 8:03 p.m. CST
was really hoping amanda would win ,but someone said it best before, her answer to cirie was retarded at best....i also found it funny that in back to back jury votes in the last 2 seasons finales that someone described amanda's look as "glazed over".... but ozzy is one lucky mofo....he gets to see and suck on her lovely tits and smack that fine ass... i hate him...hahahah
