Second Hand Survivor

Or is that second rate? This marks the first Survivor that I’ve primarily followed via Reality News Online, because Survivor All-Stars failed to deliver the goods live.

The game started with too much information. I knew too much about the players and the players knew too much about themselves. So I missed out on having their personalities revealed through play and the players started voting people out based upon past performance rather than current game play. But there was still hope for some conniving and backstabbing down the stretch.

But then, the game failed to deliver strategic twists down the stretch. This was the best strategy our All-Stars could come up with: stand by the Rob-father and hope for an immunity win? Their only chance for a win was to break the Rob-Amber dyad. Yet week after week we saw them play for third place.
