Title: Survivor 36: Ghost Island/Survivor NZ: Thailand
Post by: Nige on March 01, 2018, 05:17:58 PM
It's back!

I love the theme and the cast seems pretty cool, although we didn't get to see or hear from most of them in the premiere.

Looking forward to how this one plays out.

Solid enough premier, I'm a bit worried that we have already seen advantages, hidden immunity idol and 2 fake idols already haha

I actually quite liked the double episode

Feel like I've gotten right into it where as last season took me a long time

LOL at Jacob, I mean how bad can you be LOL! For such a super fan he did nearly every single thing you shouldn't do haha

And what sort of a name is Donathon :P

Jacob is arguably the worst player ever to have played Survivor.

That was a pretty good blindside yesterday, I really liked how idols and advantages had nothing to do with it, just all that social work to get it done. Libby and James had really good episodes.

The characters this season are great, I hope this keeps up.

I swear they went out of their way to proudly display the behinds of Jenna and Steph went they went idol hunting. Won't complain.

(It's between like 12:25 and 12:55 on 9now's catch-up episode online, for those interested)

Post by: Nige on March 17, 2018, 09:25:25 PM
Pretty surprised the latest boot went out when he did, didn't see it coming.

I reckon it's been a strong pre-merge and a gut feel says we'll lose another relevant character or two in a blindside.

Totally expecting the ol' three tribe split though before the merge but who knows whether that'll happen. Probably that MvGX meets Kaoh Rong vibe I'm getting that makes me think that.

Still can't pick a winner right now, but I'd be surprised if Dom and Wendell at the very least didn't go far.

Agreed, I’m thinking 5-5-5 when 15 people are left to shake it up.
Michael is in serious trouble now which is a shame.

Really enjoying it so far. Kellyn seems like she’s getting a bit of a winners edit with odd things mentioned about her life. But I also find myself wanting James to win haha

Steph's coming back at some point, put your house on it. She's got game, had a solid edit for pre-merger and got lovely exit music to boot. It's a shame that she more or less got swap-flowered.

This cast is seriously great. I'm really looking forward to the merge.

Really enjoying the fact that even with all these idols/advantages popping up, they don't feel incredibly overbearing yet.

The highlight is 100% the stick coming back, that's hilarious and amazing.

Love that the stick is back too.
Funny that Bradley thought if he made it to the merge he'd win as well.
Can't recall too many winners who had a knack for rubbing people the wrong way. He clearly thought he was better than he actually was.
With all the advantages and idols it's going to be interesting. Things could turn in an instant.

Another very quality season and cast, there legitimately hasn't been a mediocre to bad season/cast (imo) since probably worlds apart or san juan del sur, they've definitely been on top of their game through Kaoh Rong, MvGX, HHH and now Ghost Island.

Don't really have any outstanding favourites, at the moment I'm probably leaning towards Dom since I like chaos but it's not like there's a Spencer/Aubry/etc type for me to support in this season, not that there's anything wrong with that.

Laurel's an odd one. I initially pegged her as an early boot who'd play too hard, too early. Instead, with the way things are going, I think she's on her way to be that third place finalist which no chance.

Wouldn't want to take someone who is so highly educated and speaks so well to the end. Also, shes going to win individual immunities (once chris goes), shes a machine at the challenges. She will have a decent resume at the end, can't see her having no chance... Plus everyone seems to love her. I just don't see her getting there, too big of threat, top 5-6 boot.
I'm desperately hoping Kellyn is the runner-up, can't stand her and her winners edit

I'm desperately hoping Kellyn is the runner-up, can't stand her and her winners edit
Based on what we've seen, these are my thoughts on the remaining people left:

Dom: Good position with a number of connections plus has the idol and legacy advantage, he's making it to the end I think (he's also my pre-season pick to win).
Des: She's nowhere near as much of a factor as I thought she would be. Probably goes deep enough (F6ish?) without being too much of a factor.
Kellyn: I like her, but I don't think she's got enough going for her to make it to the end. She'll need to build a resume during the merge if she's any chance.
Jenna: Making up the numbers really. That's literally all I can say here. Mid merge boot.
Wendell: Given all his content thus far and the fact he now has the Erik idol, I'm pretty confident he's also going to be at the finale. I think he's got the closest thing to a winners edit right now.
Donathan: Pretty obvious feel good growth arc going on. He's inoffensive and doesn't appear to have much to his game so should be strung along until he's seen as too much of a threat because you can't not like him.
Laurel: Like I said, I think she's gonna be the no-vote getter at FTC. Just a gut feel based on what we've seen.
Chris: Didn't expect to like this guy as much as I do but he's provided great content so far. Given we've got the clear Chris vs Dom thing going on (a la Josh vs Jeremy in SJDS), I think Chris loses the battle against Dom who I'll either get the numbers or use an advantage/idol.
Sea Bass: He'll go deep enough because he's a cool guy, who should be an IIC contender and have enough connections but again will probably be cut as a threat. Not sure he'll articulate himself well if he makes FTC either.
Angela: It's hard to see where she even fits in, especially if Chris goes early as I predict. She'll be an early or mid merge boot.
Chelsea: The most Purple of anyone on this season so far really, can't see her being a factor.
Libby: I like her but I think she's gonna be targeted early merge for being dangerous.
Michael: This dude is cool and has been impressive. I tihnk he goes deep but will fall short (like Julia in Kaoh Rong)

Honestly, Chris was a great character and lot better than most of his archetype, but yeah it's definitely hard to deny that he really cooked his chances in the most phenomenal way possible.

Really doesn't make a lot of sense to not play an idol that's only valid for two tribals. It's also kinda funny that him winning the first round of the Ghost Island game is basically what screwed him over. If he lost on the first round, sure he would have lost his vote, but he'd only have the idol for the one tribal, would have played and Libby would have gone.

Also Wendell's voting confessional was seriously one of the greatest of all time.

So my girlfriend has been announced as the Survivor NZ Podcast Host for RHAP this season (Which I know a few people listen to) which is pretty great!
If you're interested you can hear her first podcast, with Mike Bloom, about the Survivor NZ pregame (warning, long podcast) and next week she will be reviewing the first Survivor NZ episode with "Zen Hen" Henry from Australian Survivor Season 2.

http://robhasawebsite.com/survivor-new-zealand-thailand-season-preview-rhapup-mike-bloom/

Survivor NZ S2 has a good feel to it, they've ironed out all the poor decisions from the first season so really looking forward to it this season!

Wow! The first episode of Survivor NZ was really good! Looks like it’s going to be an interesting season for sure. Some really great characters and they actually all want to play right off the bat. Great news!

Yes, as I said a few posts above, they corrected everything that was bad about it in the first season.

They got people who want to play the game, removed Redemption Island, added immunity idols and have an interesting cast. Very good signs already! Maybe give it a shot. Aussie Survivor S1 was shower and S2 was amazing, so probably same deal is going to happen

I finally got a chance to check out the first ep and without having seen the first season to compare it, I really enjoyed it. It did feel a bit slow and the almost laidback nature of the Kiwis was kinda weird because both us and the Americans appeared to really play more frenetically, but maybe that will come in time. I love the location though, Thailand's awesome and if it provides the same challenge that the US season did, that'll be cool.

On the latest Ghost Island ep, Des provided a masterclass in how to blow up your game in the space of an entire ep.

Dom and Wendell are gonna go down as one of the best duos in Survivor history if they keep this up and go all the way. Almost kinda JT and Fishbach-esque. They're both great characters.

Seemed like the double elimination was a production ploy to try and break up the "Naviti strong" alliance (Kellyn pls stop). Clearly it failed.

Chelsea is apparently now the most statistically "purple" player or something, hasn't had a confessional since Bradley's boot ep, and that's despite her winning individual immunity twice.

Dom and Wendell are dominating this game and putting on a near master class on how to run the game as a duo. It's kinda boring in a way, but also incredibly impressive to watch. I'm enjoying it though, because they're my two favourites in the game.

Jenna getting sent straight to the jury after her vote out was kinda funny and sad, not even getting final words was rough.

Based on everything we've seen, the Dom/Wendell/Laurel/Donathan alliance has to be the final 4 and I'd be very surprised if it wasn't.

+1 to everything, great read. Starting to think Donathan is the no vote getter at FTC.

Second episode of Survivor NZ was solid, I really like the outpost idea! Want Matt and Dave to meet there!

I think it's gonna be Laurel. Seems to be a narrative where she thinks she's safe sticking with Dom/Wendell, and while she is, they're a tight duo and she's a Malolo, so basically a goat.

Agreed with this. That'd be fun. Liking the way this show/season is shaping. Idol in play certainly makes it fun and the tribe dynamics are interesting. Slowly warming to the host, but there are a few things he says that annoy me. There are some really good characters out there though.

Just edited the thread title so we can use this for Survivor NZ: Thailand since we already are and it will still be on after Ghost Island finishes.



On that, I'm actually really enjoying the different vibe this show/season has. The Kiwis bring something a little different. There is a lot of respect and sportsmanship going on, but not like Aus Survivor S1 Lee Carseldine level of mateship.

Can't decide whether Eve played the idol situation terribly or well in the end. Hopefully things shake up a little next episode as hinted in the preview because as much as I like Khangkaw, the game needs them to go to tribal now.

On that, I'm actually really enjoying the different vibe this show/season has. The Kiwis bring something a little different. There is a lot of respect and sportsmanship going on, but not like Aus Survivor S1 Lee Carseldine level of mateship.

Can't decide whether Eve played the idol situation terribly or well in the end. Hopefully things shake up a little next episode as hinted in the preview because as much as I like Khangkaw, the game needs them to go to tribal now.

Don't know if I can do another Survivor, nothing will live up to Probst and the US version.  Any hotties on the kiwi one?  :P

Last season of Australian Survivor was fantastic and this season of Survivor NZ has gotten off to a good start.

Also, the hosts shouldn't be trying to be Probst, because nobody can be, but both JLP and Matt Chisholm have their own charm and things that make them good hosts.

I don't love or hate Russell, but I'm not a huge fan of the idea when the show is Australian Survivor. The whole concept of the upcoming season kinda worries me a little and if they're already trying to recruit some like Hantz for this season, I feel like they're taking a step in the wrong direction after a really good S2.

Unless something drastic changed behind the scenes, I can confirm that it isn't a joke. He's on the season!

The NZ host was appalling in season 1. Cringeworthy. He can't have improved that much to be rated good. Maybe he's just a little bit shower now. I'm still not watching it but if you want to be taken seriously there's some things you shouldn't post.

Jeez I think that is pretty closed minded of you enzedder which seems a bit out of character! You haven't seen him this season and so you can't really make a judgement call like that and say that we can't take Nige seriously, when you are the one that is talking without any facts... Chisholm has vastly improved from last season (from someone who has watched both) and not only that, he is being widely recognised in the Survivor community for how well he is doing this season. All the more reasons to give Survivor NZ S2 a go, and also all the more reasons to take what Nige says seriously.

Perhaps he has improved and I hope that the season entertains all of you who are watching it. It's hard for me to believe though.  Anyway I've missed the beginning episodes and hold no regrets and won't watch it now part way through.  Probst's American survivor is enough for me to get my fix.

This season is super enjoyable if you're a Dom and/or Wendell fan. Fortunately, I love both.

Gotta love Donathan just blowing up his game. It was basically his boot episode but he managed to survive it.

Laurel is dumb, could have easily made a move twice in two weeks and is just content to ride the Dom/Wendell coattails to third place with no votes.

Also I couldn't stop laughing at Kellyn's advantage winding back up on Ghost Island and Sebastian Pirate getting it.

Hard to tell if Dom and Wendell are this good at Survivor and everyone else just sucks, I think it's a bit of both. More competent players would have done something by now though, but they're honestly the ultimate duo. They've surpassed JT and Fishbach for me, and I loved those guys in Tocantins.

Obvious gigantic spoilers below

Conflicted about the winner. Dom was the better player and deserved to win, save for a bitter jury, but Wendell is still a top-tier winner and deserving of a survivor title (but yes, Dom would've been more deserving and an elite-tier winner). The new final-four system definitely had a big impact on this season, because surely Laurel doesn't miss her opportunity to vote out Wendell at F4 - definitely not as bad/rigged as HHH though. I hope they get rid of it.

You can clearly see a divide between the Dom and Wendell voters as well - the big-time players (Chris) and with a strategic focus (Michael, Libby, Des) up against the bitter (Kellyn) low-time players who didn't respect game (Chelsea, Sebastian, Donathan, Angela) - if that all makes sense. When it came to 5-5 it was over, Laurel was only ever going to put her vote in one place. Was like Aubry 2.0, getting robbed by a bitter jury despite being the no-doubt better player in every sense pretty much, although Wendell is a good winner and far better than Michele. The fact that they were actually bitter and pissed off about the fake idol play was really annoying. Votes based on emotion and not OOO annoy me, and it seems there was a few of them there. Used to be starting to like Kellyn but she was terrible tonight, while Sebastian (who was also terrible tonight) and Donathan couldn't give credit where credit is due unlike Chris.

Overall it was a pretty decent season with a good finale, nothing amazing but a lot better than some other seasons with two great survivor players - Wendell and Dom > JT and Fishy and Rob and Amber. Dom and Michael without a doubt return, Donathan maybe as well.

tl;dr Dom robbed and genuinely one of the best survivors to not win of all time but Wendell also a good winner


edit: can add Kellyn, Sebastian, Laurel and Angela pretty much to a list of worst survivor players of all time imho. Shows that when you have people like Sebastian and Kellyn voting on the jury gameplay doesn't really matter.

Agree with everything Jukes said - summed it all up perfectly

I really hope Dom and Wendell made a private deal to chop the prize 500k each

Good season finished and Jukes nailed it with his comments above.
Only thing the finale lacked was a Don and Wendell fire challenge for the fun of it.

Great end to the season. I don't think it's a simple question. It would have been sooooo hard for Matt. Everyone else gets voted out and gets to be themselves and he's expected to still lie? He's not even in the game anymore, keeping up a lie like that for ages would have taken a huge mental toll as well. And you'd think the producers would have been right in his ear the entire time. Not an easy situation at all.

Spoke to Dave tonight briefly on skype, what a legend that guy is. Feel so sorry for him and Matt, they are getting so much hate thrown their way and it is pretty unfair because they didn't choose to both get casted, it was just an obstacle they had to deal with as soon as they arrived on day 1. They didn't ask for it and had to adapt. Ouch!
