  • I wish it would be more aobut sirviving the elements, rather than the other team mates.

    When I hear the word "survivor" in the same sentance with a TV show I think of a show that test your physical skills to the max, not your social skills or teh way you can lie. But there are some who would say that surviving a crowd of people is much more improtant nowadays than surviving the natural elemens.
    Don't get me wrong, I think the show is rather good, although it is getting rather repetitive and thus booring. Even so, i would really want to see a survivor with a lot more drastic conditions, such as ablosutely no provisions until one of the team members just can't take it any more, or, even more, making them do exhausting chores every day.
    I really don't like the alliances, nor the unfair voting, but is part of the game after all. In fact, with a decent physical condition and a superb strategy, you can deceive every one of the competitors and just win the game.
  • A pretty decent reality show. Regular people compete to be the last person on an island to win $1,000,000.

    A pretty decent reality show competeing for a $1,000,000 prize. This one is where you can get voted off even if you are the best player which I don't realy like too much. I think it is funny when people make allianaces and then are surprised when they get voted off. What do they think is going to happen? Do they think everyone is just going to vote for themselves and it be a tie? If it is another from their alliance that gets voted off they don't say hey, wait a minute we have an alliance. Somebody has to go home, sorry that is how the game is played. Quit crying about it. A pretty fun show to watch though.
  • This show is about 16 to 30 group of strangers, stranded in a deserted land. For 39 days, they outwit, outplay, and outlast the other survivors to win the million dollar prize.

    The show features people who are going to win one prize: 1,000,000 dollars. This phenomenon features backstabing challenges that require each person to think and use their physical strength. It is one great show because it shows "corporate America" and how people are willing to do many things for money. Over all, this is a great show for the casual viewers who think of this as an awesome show and for hard-core fans who can go deep into an episode and think about what happened.
  • Nothing will ever match the sheer thrill of seeing Richard Hatch win the million dollars in Season One, but Survivor remains one of my favourite shows despite the highs and lows.

    SURVIVOR is one of those shows that I tell myself again and again I'm not going to get wrapped up in, yet it never fails to grab me and maintain my interest with each subsequent instalment.

    I'm an actor and a director by profession and I find that, if nothing else, SURVIVOR is a good lesson in the way people honestly behave under very "theatrical" circumstances (even though I know that what we see is edited to within an inch of it's life). As a Canadian viewer ineligible to be a contestant, I like to enjoy the show vicariously through the actions and successes of my favourites and, I'll admit, I almost take it personally when someone betrays the person for whom I'm rooting, but even in a not-so-great season, I'd rather watch luke warm SURVIVOR than many other items that are being offered up to us in this age of "popularity above content". I truly appreciate the fact that at each council the contestants get to vote each other off and we don't have to wait while the home town favourites get voted off by phone poll.

    Now... if they'd just allow Canadians to take part; THEN you'd see me glued to the television! LOL Be well...
  • The Best Show on TV.

    I have been addicted to survivor since day one. This show keeps you guessing all of the time.

    This show takes you to places around the world you would never have seen otherwise.

    I love the people they case on this show. They almost always cast a good mix of people. There are people you love to hate and people you love to love.

    This is one of the few shows my husband will sit and watch with me. I look forward to it ever week.
    Im even hooked to the web site. I love it. This show is AWSOME.

  • survivor had its moment now its time to gracifully step aside.

    Survivor is often reguarded as the best reality show out there but i dont agree. First of all although it isnt public this show is rigged because the producers wait and try to talk the people in to who to vote for for the whole blindside effect. It didnt take me long to figure out that something was up because every one says they are going to vote for person A then they vote for person B. When survivors are not competing in challenges you hear im going to vote for this person im going to vote for that person, I dont care about all that hollywood hoopla all that matters is the actual vote. If they wanted to make the show more enjioyable cut out that part and include other things i dont know what but im sure the producers can think of something. I do enjoy watching this show but like i said above its time to gracifully step aside while it is on top of the reality world (allthough i dont agree with it) instead of dragging it out so long as to bring the quality of the show down which it has started to do.
  • Survivor is a popular reality television game show produced in many countries throughout the world. In the show, contestants are isolated in a remote location and compete for a cash prize. "Survivor" is based on the successful Swedish show Expedition: Rob

    At least 16 strangers (18 or 20 in some seasons) are stranded in a remote location and divided into equally sized teams called "tribes". They compete against each other in competitions called challenges. These are divided into reward challenges and immunity challenges. Both types consist of endurance, problem solving, teamwork, dexterity, and/or will power. After the immunity challenge the losing tribe must vote to remove one of their own members from the game at the Tribal Council. Most episodes also have a reward challenge where the winning tribe receives a little comfort such as flint (for making fire a little bit more easy), hygiene materials, fishing gear, and the like. When there are at least 10 players left in the game (9 in all-stars, 8 in Thailand), they "merge" into a single tribe. From this point, challenges are won on an individual basis. Rewards are given to only one player, and sometimes that player has the option of sharing the reward with one or more other players. All eliminated players, except the final nine, leave the game altogether. Those who finish in ninth through third place remain to form the "jury". In the final episode the players go through a number of activities that ends in an immunity challenge. Immediately following this challenge another person is voted out. The players return to camp and go through a "memorial" for the players previously eliminated from the game on the way to their final endurance challenge. Whoever wins this challenge votes another player out, thereby determining who receives third place and which two players go to the final two. The final two return to camp for one last day. At the final Tribal Council each of the seven jurors votes for the winner. Probst takes the container with the votes, and it is secured until the live finale of the show, when the votes are revealed and the million-dollar winner is announced (Excluding the first season as the jury votes were revealed after they were cast).

  • the best show out there, other than LOST

    something about being stranded on an island just interests the heck out of me, i love it. I have to get on survivor before i die, its my life dream, it very idea of ebing on there is great. To get out of the societies grip, to survive on the elements, i have a great respect for those people on that show.
  • Good show for the whole family to watch...and that is every type of family in the world!!

    Survivor is an excellent show to watch. You can imagine how things would be if you were in the same situation. Survivor is the type of show where you will cry, shout, laugh, and feel sad. So many emotions this show takes you can you not love survivor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • A pretty decent reality show. This one is where you can get voted off even if you are the best player which I don't realy like too much.

  • Im a personal fan of Survivor but puh-lease get some new material!

    Since, season 2 I have been watching. From my persepective I find season 2 to be the best. Possibly because it was my first season watching so everything was fresh and new. Now, with all the new seasons everything is basicaly the same. They have the same challenages but just tweak them a bit. They try and make them different but any true Survivor fan knows thats it been done before. I still love the show and respect it 100% I just think they need some new material to get it backup and running.
  • One of my all-time favorites...

    Survivor is one of my all-time favorite shows which I have watched since the first season. Mark Burnett is a genius as he has created many of my favorite shows, survivor is no exception. Even now into its twelfth season they are still finding ways to shake up the game, and keep the survivors on their toes. This is one of the best shows on TV in my opinion, and I can only hope that this show goes on for years to come. So we can continue to see who outwits, outlasts, and outplays their island mates for the million dollar prize.
  • Survivor is fun to watch, but I won't cry if I miss an episode.

    I must admit that i have not been watching the show since it first came on the air and Richard flared it up with his nudity. I did see the first season. I lost touch with Survivor, when they began to commercially cast the show with big breasted hotties and CK model boys. I know sex sells, but please. The show is called "Survivor". Appearence should not matter. What really drives me nuts with the show, is the people that come on the show have seen it before. IT IS A GAME! Yes, people are going to lie. IT IS A GAME!
  • While I am a big fan of the show, I must admit the current season is a little lackluster. Most of it seems to fit into the categories of dull and boring. Supposedly; they were going to spice things up with "Exile Island."

    When they send tribe members to "Exile Island" we don't get to see enough of it. While the challenges may be tougher and more physical, it seems that most of the rewards are tasteless at best. I think for a future season they need new twists. One Idea would be a change of locale. How about getting out of the jungle and into a location such as the Pacific Northwest? Even though I believe it to be one of the best reality shows out there, I would have to give this season only 2 out of five stars.
  • A show where people are sent to a tropical island and they must outwit, outplay, and outlast the others to win $1,000,000.

    I absolutely love this show. I have seen every single episode and I remember every castaway. I love it to death. I love to root for the good people, and hate the evil people. I love trying to solve the mental challenges and tring to predict votes. I love watching every moment and I know that this show will always be a classic because no other reality show beats it.
  • dont waste your time with this just read the review

    Ok I like this show because it is full of action like one minute everybody is fine the next people are screaming and yelling and lets just say not so friendly. but I think that reality shows just never last and I think its getting sorta boring and also I dont get attached to much reality show where people get voted off cause' I get attached to people than they leave and I always get mad. but thats why I dont watch it alot. I also like to see the things they have to do though its always intresting to see wholl win.
  • This is one of the best reality shows today.

    At first I didn't think this show was good. I didn't get it. I didn't start watching it until I saw Amazing Race where Rob M. was in. Then I gave Survivor a shot. I saw a classic one called Survivor All Stars and I got hooked. Whenever it is on I watch it. Survivor Panama is getting really interesting. I go to video stores to see if they have Survivor and I basically look everywhere. I love how they put people in positions where they have to lie to get what they need. Survivor is AMAZING!!!

  • This baby's a classic!

    16 total strangers marooned on a deserted island for 39 days with no food, no water, no shelter, and no communication. They encounter various challenges and vote one of their own off. After the tribes merge, they think of a name themselves and play for themselves. If they lose the challenge, it's a fair game.
  • This is the original reality show, and gets better and better.

    "Survivor" is a great show, and it gets better every season. My favorite past contestant is Stephenie LaGrossa. She was in the competition twice, and got to the final two the second time around. She, sadly, lost, but I did like the winner, Danni, as well. Survivor has 16-20 candidates, and one person is voted off each week. The winner eventually wins $1 million, while the runner-up gets $100,000. This show is addicting, and I have watched it since it was in Palau. It's surprisingly addicting, and wonderful. I thought it was going to be really dumb, but I now really like it. A great show for reality fans.
  • Okay basically this is a show where they put 16 (can vary depending on the season) Americans out in the middle of nowhere in various places (i.e. Panama, the Outback, the Amazon) and they have challenges and try to survive.

    AWESOME! I love this show, and can\'t wait for each new episode. My favorite season was season 2 (the Outback) and my favorite castaways were Stephanie (Palau and Guatamala) and Elisabeth (the Outback). Although I don\'t like every aspect of it (such as the recent obsession with skulls this season) I enjoy most of it. It provides enough drama to entertain me, and they do good at picking contestants. Jeff Probst is great at getting things out of people in tribal council, and they do a good job picking out rewards. Survivor also has a great website, where you can read the thoughts of former contestants on each new episode, find out more about the current contestants, and more.
  • Originally coming from Robinson Expedition that was brought over to North America has turned out to be one the best shows ever. Lately, in their past season's it has gone bad but Thailand was and probably always will be the very best season ever aired on

  • Whatever happened to this show???!!!

    I watched this show since season one and found it so interesting and of cause waited for the next and the next and the next season. My favourite season was the one in the Outback, Australia. I guess Mark Burnett is busy making other reality game shows but I know this one was a hit. Almost all my friends in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia was discussing and talking about it. We even had the show aired live at "Coffee Bean" to see who wins the US$1 Million and had contests if you could guess the right winner pluss for the weekly "who gets voted out" too... Ahh what a disappiontment !
  • Amazing to watch people go mad around others that they're supposed to work with to win the prize.

    It's a simple concept. You put a bunch of people on an island, split them into teams, make sure they don't die, and eliminate them in a contest to see who gets the prize and becomes the "Survivor". Every few days, there's a reward challenge, where one "tribe" of people gets a reward when they win the challenge. The other...isn't so lucky. In another two days, an immunity challenge is done. The losing tribe votes off a member, and the game goes on until one person is left. If you watch the show, it becomes a bit more clear as to what's happening. It's not really a reality show...more like life unscripted. I give Survivor a 10/10
  • I can't take it anymore!

    No one can deny that, this show is the mother of all reality shows. When it first appeared on our screens, it was like a breath of fresh air. After so many years of watching soap dramas, teenage and detective's series, it was like a piece of gift, sent from heaven itself. But now, it smells more like a piece of rotten fish! Yes, we all like the back-stabbing, bad-mouthing and whinning, but after so many seasons, even all that sound kinda boring now. They tried to come up with new twist every season, but even that doesn't surprise anyone anymore. All I can say is that, they better think quick, cause the show is losing its'fans.
  • Fantastic - love seeing the highs and lows of the contestants journeys.

    Right from the very first show I have been hooked. It is fun to check in each week and see what challenges and complaints will be made against each other to win the money. The trahy conversations that go on bring out the characters true traits and I feel help you to determine if they are really in to win or just for the fame.
    The other thing I love is seeing the different environments they are in and the beautiful country side / islands / oceans the shows are filmed in. Having the explanation of some of the locals trends and customs have been especially interesting.
    Also love to see the particular animals in these particular areas of the world.

    Bring it on - I will continue to watch the more you create !
  • 16-18 ordinary people across the country are stranded on an island. They compete with teammates from their tribe in reward and immunity challenges. In the end, only one can win the $1,000,000.

    I didn't watch the first season of Survivor, but when everyone seemed to be in to it, I started watching it, too. I loved the concept: people stuck on an island with strangers, voting each other off. At times it could be funny, it could be sad, or it could be scary.
    I love the show, but you may ask, why a measly 8.8? Even though the season was better everytime, I found that the show seemed to be lacking. I found myself getting bored, and a boring show doesn't make good TV.
  • Thursday nights are meant for good television, not horrible reality.

    I used to watch this starting in season two, up until last year. But after 10 seasons (or something like that), of people stranded on an island for a million bucks, I think the idea is getting kind of old. Especially since they haven't upped the ante, so to speak. What about $1.5 or something that would make people a little more desperate??!!
  • Survivor

    Survivor is the best. This season seems to be awesome. I\'ve enjoyed every season very much. Every season has characters, plot twists and confrontations. I beleive every season was great in their own way. Some might have overshadowed others but if you look back and remember what made each season great you\'ll really appreciate the show. You also have to look at all the winners too. Some were dominant and some weren\'t but they won survivor. Every winner deserves the title as sole survivor. They all played differntly but thats whats great about survivor is that everyone is defferent and their strategies are different.
  • I love Survivor!

    I started watching Survivor when my friend told me about how she loved it so much, so I decided to give it a try. I watched Survivor: Amazon, and fell in love with the show! And to this day the Amazon has to be my favorite season of all time!
  • Where do I begin? A mix of physical and mental strength play a major part in this 12 season hit show. READ MORE!!

    There are three morales to this show:


    And everyone tries to win the grand prize: One Million Dollars!! Wether some people backstab, intellect around, or just plain be mean to the other competetors there is always something interesting going on.

    The variety of the people and the challenges are never the same and new twists are constantly being added. So...

    C H E E R S ! !

    for another twelve seasons of survivor!!
