  • Bobby Jon and Stephanie give it another try. Is this an attempt to boost ratings or a vote of no confidence in the new batch of survivors? How about a little of both.

    The jungle and Mayan ruins are a great site for the show. The first big trek looked extremely tough. Usually on the first show, there are a couple of standouts who come to the forefront. Remember how Rupert established himself the first week a few seasons ago? Well, this season the focus was on the 2 returning players. I understand the concept of the 2nd chance, but I don't generally agree with it. Why couldn't they have been used as advisors or as Mayan "chief" leaders?
    The 2nd problem is in the past, Survivor has been somewhat of a melting pot reflective of American Society. This year, it is not that way so much. Having a former NFL quaterback seems like granting someone who has already had a shot another chance at his 15 minutes of fame. One of the attractions of the show is the common Joe is supposed to have a chance at it.
    These 2 gripes aside, it is Survivor. Bring on the tribal council and let's vote somebody off the island, er jungle, oh well...let's just get rid of some people.
