So what did ya'll think of the first episode?
The two that dove into the water first really blew it (snicker).
20 people, but not for long. An interesting twist to boot two people immediately. Kinda makes you think back to grade school when you'd be picking teams.
I wasn't surprised to see the singing teacher not get picked. She was just plain 'ol obnoxious.
If you spent any time out in the ocean you know that distances can be deceiving as well as rate of travel. Obviously the ones that jumped did not realize either of these things.
I was really surpised that no one picked the muscular black guy till the very end. You need strong workers for the initial build of the camp and for the physical challenges that lay ahead. Not sure what people were thinking. You can always dump the beef later. Same with the team picking the old geezer over the young stupid guy. Did not understand that move at all.
Yeah, that teacher was destined for the chopping block. As soon as they revealed the pick-your-teams game, I knew she was a gonner.
I'm still shocked the gay guy didn't pick the SG to be on his team, after pretending to be all friendly with her. He turned an ally, no small resource on Survivor, into a sure enemy.
I was also initially, but maybe he was thinking ahead. If she does not get voted out of the other tribe (not likely but still) when the merge comes, he has a friend on the "otherside" or an unaccounted for ally if he wants to make any moves. I would think he could easily convince her this was his strategy should it come to pass.
Moving to a new location was a stupid move by that one team. "Its a new experience! Lets go start building another camp." Stupid stupid move.
