    Hello all,


    My name is Brett and I'm going to be running the Survivor pool again! I'll give the same spiel about myself as last time, I've been a member of TV.com for nearly 5 years and enjoy programs such as Survivor, The Amazing Race, Arthur, Who Wants to be a Millionaire, and The Mole (greatest show ever-I'd be happy to talk to any mole fans about it!Laughing )


    Here's how a pool works: There will be 20 contestants this season. Each user may pick one contestant who they think will win Survivor. If we have less than 20 participants (which very well may happen), I will let people pick twice. And we all know that's gonna happen, haha. Once your player(s) is/are eliminated, you are as well.


    If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to PM me or ask a question on this board. Smile I usually am on this board twice a day, so I will be checking in quite often.


    Thank goodness for copy and paste


    Credit to Megan (bballmegan22) for the scoring protocol, wherever you are


    *1st voted off: 50 Points
    *1st member of the Jury: 60 points
    *5th Place: 35 points (Will only be used if there is a Final Three)
    *4th place: 70 points
    *3rd place: 140 points
    *2nd place: 280 points
    *Winner: 560 points
    *Wins Individual Immunity: +20 points
    *Wins Individual Reward: +15 points
    *Your contestant is on the winning reward tribe: +5 points
    *Your contestant is on the winning immunity challenge: +10 points
    *Your player successfully plays the hidden immunity idol (this DOES NOT apply if they use it but they would have been safe. It only works if it saved them from being eliminated.): +15 points
    *Your contestant wins the "fan favorite" award: +30 points
    *Your contestant is mentioned in the top 3 fan favorites but does not win: +10 points
    *Your original pick wins: +40 points


    BUT...thanks to you guys (and me) we have some new ways to earn points!


    Wins a Redemption Island battle: +10 points


    Returns to the game due to RI: +20 points


    Winning back to back Individual Immunity: +10 points


    Winning both Individual Reward and Immunity: +10 points


    Being Medevaced: +10 points (CR, I especially love this one!)


    Please try to format the list the same as I did it, and just add your name on to the bottom of the list. Smile I'll send out PM to y'all from last season's pool Cast list at http://www.cbs.com/shows/survivor/cast/


    Good luck!

    Such a difficult choice for me this season! Rupert was a person I had considered. I'll go returnee based on how often they usually are in the finals. 1. skbrettbug - Rupert

    2. Taylorg8 - Monica

    That was a hard choice. Eliminated former winners from my choice and the unlikable ones or not seeming smart lol. Monica seemed like she could've done well in the right circumstances last time and I liked her and she was likable. She should stay around long enough as an asset to her tribe. Merge may be trouble for her! I can't wait. None of you spoiler people please btw!

    Shoot! I was seriously considering picking Monica - she was one of the few contestants I liked on One World. Hmmm...let's see. I'm tempted to choose Hayden since he won Big Brother (you got me hooked on yet another reality show, skbrettbug!) but I think the other players will use that as a reason to get rid of him early. I think for my first pick I'll go Tyson - not because I consider him all that great a player but the possibility of him addressing a jury with his usual combination of snark/arrogance would be awesome. If nothing else, maybe he can score me some points in the challenges.

    Damn,Rupert is taken Still popular,even though some hate him. I'm very tempted to choose loved one,because Tyson is also taken and between Monica(taken),Aras,Tina,Gervase,Kat,Laura(who!?!?!?),Candice and Colton...well I just ain't that big fan. I like some and all...but...yeah so choosing loved one. Aras or Tina are winners,so those 2 might be in danger from start...don't wanna pick them. Gervase might last,ain't gonna pick person I don't even remember Laura. Candice is boring and on that high horse of hers,Colton is Colton(though I hope he stays a bit ).


    So I am thinking choosing between Vytas,Laura(Rupert's wife,because she's been on island already,even if just for a day),Marissa and Caleb


    Vytas looks like he could be all around threat,same as Marissa,while Laura and Caleb might be underdogs and get further...hmmm...I like,what Vytas said about chess



    Edit: Finally post!!!

    I'm probably crazy for picking a relative first but I'll go with Hayden Moss, I get an interesting vibe from this guy. You never know! EDIT: Actually I just checked the other thread, I'll honour UnovaChampion's dibs and switch to John Cody.

    Thanks everybody else who signed up! I have new twists coming this season and I'll give some hints later


    CR, The Molewas a reality show about a group who tried to win money for a pot while trying to keep a "Mole" from keeping it out. I am probably its biggest fan


    And yeah Team Colton will be out pretty soon.

    I'm hoping that we get a second round of picks, not confident about 'NFL Man', reckon he is just as likely to be thrown out early, especially if it becomes a female-dominated game

    Yeah, I checked it out after you mentioned you might start up a game on the forums - now I have another guilty pleasure to hold me over 'til Survivor returns.


    I just posted the new Outlast, Outwit, & Outpredict game btw - was gonna wait until Jeff Probst's cast assessment was released but I got excited and posted it anyway lol. Everybody on the board is welcome to join. Can't wait for both games (and the season) to start up!

    I think Big Brother is stupid this season. By the way I'll be typing some stuff from this forsaken iPad at school...the "amazing keyboard case" never seems to type it out correctly


    And a question for you. I don't want the pool to continue to be something that you sign up for and don't really have much responsibility for the rest of the season, so I'm going to make it fun. Is anyone against me spicing it up a little (alright, maybe a lot).


    Here is your first hint to guide you: You may not finish the pool with the same player you chose...

    And let's have a little commercial break, no? Amanda (dool_girl) and I will also be hosting an Amazing Race game on the Amazing Race forums. Please check it out, please! We need you

    I agree with ya on BB. I've been rewatching older seasons on YouTube (apparently CBS hasn't caught on) and this current season is pretty underwhelming.


    I'm looking forward to the twists as well. I think it's fitting that we get a couple curveballs thrown at us as well since there are so many in the show itself.
