    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 I copied and pasted... I've been a member of TV.com for 5.5 years and enjoy programs such as Survivor, The Amazing Race, Big Brother, Seinfeld, and The Mole!


    So here's how a pool works: There will be 18 contestants this season. Each user may pick ONE contestant who they think will win Survivor! And if we don't get enough users, which very well may happen, I will let people pick twice! 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 the board. I'm on here a LOT. So naturally I'll check in often.


    Scoring system (credit to bballmegan22...wherever she is )


    *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

    I was originally going to pick Woo, because he's a big martial arts guy, but then I watched his video, and he's a tae kwon do guy (I do karate Ooo, rivalry...just kidding). And he kind of resembled David from BB15.
    But then I saw Spencer. University of Chicago + Chess = my pick in this year's pool

    That's why I picked him..didn't see any video,just this short description on this site. I also said,that I will go out on a limb,that Brawn takes it at the end,so I was hoping I get one good Brawn for pick. Woo seems best candidate and will probably also be big threat from get-go.


    That poker player Garrett is on brains,but could have easily been on brawn.

    It was between Trish and Kass for me. For some reason I'm feeling like an older woman's gonna pull a Denise this year. Since there's weekly points for immunity wins though I'll put my money on the yoga instructor.


    I gotta say Brett, the last person I expected to be picked first was Spencer - he just seems a little too arrogant to me. Jeff's already alluded to him being a villain I think.

    I agree. I think he easily could have been any 3 of the tribes. I think they just wanted some strong people that fit those categories so it would help even it out for physical challenges.

    Well since my top two choices are taken it is between Jefra and LJ. I can't believe i'm picking beauty. I can't decide if I should go with who I like better or whoI think has a better chance in the long run. I just hope it works out better then last season.

    Although, I really can't stand meatheads and really want the brains to do well, I'm picking Tony bc he's from New Jersey and I always root for the home team... except in football.

    Who do you root for in football? (See, this is why we need an off-topic thread.)

    Also, Woo went to Ohio State, and you can NEVER trust anyone from "the ohio state university"

    Yep. But not in that order.


    As for Ohio State I don't even care about college sports and I agree just because i'm in Michigan

    I'm a Cowboys fan, which is a funny story when I went to my first football game (Giants v. Broncos, I think) donned up in Cowboy gear.

    Hmm, not confident with that pick at all, but I've changed it three times already, haha. Seems like a great cast though.


    EDIT: By the way if anyone else has geo-lock issues with the CBS website, I found it at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iflx6x5QJ38 also.

    Well...you know they like to cast good looking people because you're more apt to watch those than watch a bunch of normal looking people

    Just watched that video... What in the hell does Beauty have to do with winning Survivor?? If beauty was an advantage in the final tribal council then Amanda Kimmel would be a 2-time winner, and Sandra wouldnt... I will only grant that beauty is an advantage in getting the producers to notice you from the audition tapes. Side Note: Anyone else notice how the Brains tribe seems to be as good looking as the Beauty tribe?


    Yeah I noticed that. I think the Brain Tribe has the biggest advantage because like you said they have the beauty and some of them look like they have brawn to. The brawn tribe has basically just that. The Beauty Tribe has beauty, Some seem to have Brawn as well and some claim to have brain.
