I enjoyed Gabon ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Even though I agree about the bad winner (imo of the final 3, Sugar should have won, but that was never going to happen between the bitter jury and her attitude (or as we'd call it now, lack of jury management))

I think its reputation suffers a little bit by being sandwiched between a number of really good seasons

Surprised no one else has mentioned Nicaragua, one of my favourite US Survivor seasons with Fabio going on an immunity run at the end to win against the odds, it also had some other classic contestants like Benry and the super annoying Naonka who ended up quitting.

Survivor Redemption Island with Boston Rob and Philip Sheppard and Survivor Cagayan with Tony Vlachos and Spencer Bledsoe are another couple of favourites.

I only got into Survivor about 10 years ago though so I can't compare them to all the earlier seasons like some of the true Survivor tragics here can.

Phoebe has done the opposite. She’s deleted her claims off reddit.
Moana probably online bullied her into deleting them.

God i love Phillip Shepherd. Pure gold every episode even though he is somehow hated by most. Stealth R us one of the most iconic "alliances" ever

Are you?

Very boring season IMO. Fabio was the best thing about it.

Redemption Island also widely considered the worst season.
That was the first full Survivor season I watched so it has some nostalgia value for me, Survivor tragics probably feel the same way about the early seasons of Survivor even though they were pretty sh*t compared to the later seasons when they refined the format and contestants got better at playing the game.

Those seasons I mentioned were also better than the last few US seasons like Winners at War which is a hot mess with all the stupid twists they've thrown in.

Yeah I loved him too, wearing his pink undies around camp with no f***s given, he was mad as a cut snake but he made for great entertainment.

He was like the US version of Tarzan, a crazy old coot that was never going to win but was a useful goat to help legends like Boston Rob and the Golden God win.

I just finished Hero’s vs Villians. Was awesome. I watched the early the survivors then stopped and only started watching again now.
Parvati was stiff I thought she was better than Sandra. And Russell was pretty impressive the way he did as he pleased. Everyone just hates him.

Dave did an interview with The Project last week in self isolation from Perth, seems like he's got back with his boys that he did a phone hook up with.

That would make Perth the Survivor capital of the world, we have the Golden God, Luke, Harry, Zach and Locky, hard to beat that alliance.

I enjoyed RI purely due to the dominance of Rob. The lack of opposition does put it low down in all time though.
Yeah, I've just finished RI and if you're a fan of Rob, it's an enjoyable clinic.

And, of course the hotties, holy moly. Including Ashley, the hottest tribe member I can remember and a rare case of a cast member who somehow looked better during the game than after they've finished (smoking hot either way, obviously).

Some of the seasons I've seen (I'm no guru, granted), someone like Sarita would probably be the hottest in it; in RI, she's like sixth or seventh cab off the rank.

0 jury management.
I watched it again and I don't think he was that bad, certainly could of done better but when Probst speaks up and says the jury was bitter than he would know more information than most. No problem if the final result was 5-4 but a 7-2 landslide made the result a bit a joke.

This is amazing.
Takes some bloody effort and commitment but got it listened to, his recollection of everything is impressive but also who knows how much creative licence he has taken.
Interesting how many people actually knew about the fake idol, also how he was really down and struggling when he found the first idol.. Which in hindsight showed as from memory he was super super pumped when he found it. Also he is super aware of playing up for the camera and how much time he got on screen

I've played sport with a lot of people like that. Healthy egos but like to ham it up for a laugh and are definitely in on the joke. That's Dave: he thinks quite highly of himself, but to me it's pretty obvious that he's joking when he dials it up to 11 for his confessionals.

I'm just listening now. I'm less than 2 hours in and it's such a great podcast.

Even if no one wants to sit through the whole thing, do yourself a favour and go to 1:36.00 and listen to his impression of Luke. It's absolutely spot on

i am three quarters of the way through the 5 hour Nick one on the same feed. Just as interesting as Daves, gives a different insight to some of the boots and also gives an insight to how All Stars was set up.
