It’s your weekly Survivor predictions thread, plus an added bonus topic.
First, the predictions:
I think Sean is toast. It’s still the Gang of Four vs. Five Assorted Contestants. John & Co. are the only ones with a plan. The rest of the group could have rebelled last week, but they didn’t. I cannot conceive that the Get-Alongs (V-N-P) and the Go-It-Alones (Sean and Kathy) are going to wake up and smell the blood in the water this week, so I think the bootee is just a matter of who John’s alliance decide to target.
Neleh, and Paschal are at least somewhat comfortable with their former tribemates, so they’re unlikely to vote against the alliance this week. Vecepia is smack dab in the middle, so no reason to kick her. Sean, on the other hand, is a target everyone can hate, and one less voter who is undoubtedly against the alliance. So it’s Goodbye Sean. Never has a contestant deserved the boot more than you.
Next week might be interesting. If the losers finally decide that they don’t want to be losers, they could force the vote into a 4-4 tie. Alternatively, it’s possible (though highly unlikely) that the Gang of Four will decide to jettison John. Either way, next week is the key to the Final Four. Somehow, though, I don’t see the losers making a concerted stand.
Mark Burnet has announced that he’s going to do an All-Survivor Survivor, with contestants from past series mixed and matched to see how they stack up against each other. I’m not sure this is a great idea, but who should be on there if it’s going to make for great TV?
Richard (I): The original. But can he kick it old style?
Elisabeth (II): Just 'cause she’s so damn cute.
Hunter (IV): Should have gone far this time, but got killed by the bad guys.
Lex (III): Pleasant to paranoid, this guy was always worth watching.
Jerri (II): The evil bitch queen returns! But how far will she go now that all the guys have already seen her ta-tas?
Gina (IV): See Hunter (IV).
Rodger (II): Put him and Elisabeth on opposing teams, then see what happens if they merge. Besides, you Rodger is substantively identical to Tom (III), so you get two contestants in one, plus a cuter version of PaschalNeleh.
Mike (II): See Hunter and Gina.
John (IV): Deathmatch with Rich!
Plus, what would really be fun . . . stick Probst and Burnet out there as contestants. Bwahahahahahaha!
