Ya know what sucked??? It appeared that they were still in Africa at the end. After they announced the winner they turned the stage lights on.. They tricked ya by showing them walking through Africa on the way to tribal council....

I really didn't watch this one to much... but I did catch a few episodes..

Oh yeah - this one was awesome... I really wanted this one to win, but I never thought they had a chance in Hell. I am *very* happy to have been proved wrong.

And I sorta figured that they'd be unveiling the winner in Hollywood again, but when they didn't do something like the tacky helecopter thing from the end of last season, I was pretty fooled... they did *everything* just right to get the *perfect* visual segue from then to now. That was very cool... the only difference I noted was that all of a sudden, during Tribal Council, the split in Teresa's sarong had moved, because just before they tallied the votes, she was showing some leg whereas before, her sarong was turned in such a way that it wouldn't have been able to fall open just that way.

(Yeah, I'd been watching Teresa pretty closely. <grin> And man, Kelly was HOT once she went on the jury, whereas before, she looked like she had a great big huge lightbulb head, but seeing the real her throughout the final show was a *big* turnoff. What a b*tch... goofy as Hell, too (and not in a good way). Yuck.)

OK...I'll be the wet blanket.

The first survivor I don't think I missed an eppisode. Got into watching it and rooting and booing and hissing and all that.

Now in retrospect....I put this and most other "REALITY" TV shows on the same plane as the WWF.

It is the networks way of providing low budget programming because they participants are not "actors" they are not paid on any kind of union scale.

The second thing is that as these types of shows continue they are more and more filled with people who want to be "actor"/"entertainers" and move farther away from "reality" in the personal sense let alone the fact that it is cut and edited in ways that make the spin doctors of Washington look like little league hacks.

Sorry....you did ask what I thought (eventhough I don't do it often this is it)

All that aside....I would have rather watched that last night instead of FRIENDS which was my wife's choice.

So, have any of the participants of Survivor gone on to be big stars or close to it? I know that Colby Donaldson guy (I think that's hs name) is doing car commercials here locally.

If you don't see them now..I am sure you will see them later.

In some ways these shows are a lot like some early game shows.

Arnold S, Cuba Jr., and to many too list went on games like dating game and 10k pyramid etc.

In there defence though I will add.....unless you are related to someone in the business it is probably one of the few ways to get into it.

Thats why Hollywood is SO LIBERAL...it's all the inbreeding.

Show is ok, I watched about 5-10 minutes of it last night and about the same amount in the last episode of the first series because it was after the superbowl or something.

It sounds like in the next series the group will actually have to try to survive on their own which was what I thought the "reality show" was supposed to be. Might turn out to be better and more interesting for me so I might follow the next season closer. The way they do the show now has about same amount of "reality" IMO as watching a soap.

I thought it was the best outcome yet, the right people lasted to the last 2 survivals, and the best won. Regarding the switch of location in the end I really got taken and it was done in a great way. The next one should be interesting.

"Reality" TV makes my bile rise.

On the other hand, I'm looking forward to:
"Survival, Urban Jungle series: South Central"

Immunity challenges include:
1)Who Can Sell The Most Crack In 10 Minutes Without Being Busted
2)[]D [] []v[] []D [] []\[]'' Contest
3)Slum wars
4)Who Can Rent Out The Most Lethal Fire Trap And Make A Profit Evicting Low-Income Tennants?
5)Who Will Sink To The Most Depraved Low In Order To Get Their Heroin?

I'd pay money to watch THAT one
