I love Survivor. L O V E LOVE SURVIVOR.
Please, if you haven't watched the finale....don't read this spoiler!
I become emotionally invested in the characters and I obviously had a favorite this season....Rick Devens. Before anyone starts giving me the BS that it's just a game...blah blah blah. No shit, I know that but it doesn't mean I can't be pissed.
There are a few issues I have with how it all went down.
1) Why Survivor.....would you wait until the last night to bring a player back?
Chris was the THIRD person voted out of the game. We don't know him. He didn't have a ton of fans because of this. And you gave us no opportunity to be a fan. Ultimately leading to a winner that no one knows or gives a shit about?!? You wonder why everyone is pissed? We loved Rick. We watched him play, and trick, and scheme....and you ripped him away. Bad move, a player should have been brought back from Edge of Extinction a couple weeks ago.
2) Rick Devens....man why did you give Chris the other portion of that damn idol? If you would have given immunity to Gavin and kept Lauren and Julie you could have beaten one of them at making fire. DAMN IT! I know, I know.....no one is gonna kick you in the ass more than yourself. It was a heart breaker though....not just for you but all your fans too.
Overall, I liked the island twist but I think it was better when no one knew it was an option. The response the first time everyone walked out was fantastic. I wish they would have kept the island secret until the 5 or 6 weeks before the finale and let two people fight their way back in. After that, no more.
With all that being said, I can't wait until the next season!!!
